Man Cave turned Craft Cave

Anyone who saw this post a few weeks ago, knows that my sewing room was in desperate need of some attention.  It was THAT kid in Wal-Mart. The one with disheveled hair, no shoes, mosquito bites on her arms, and an attitude that makes Joe Dirt cringe.  Yes, I had a white trash sewing room.  

Yet I am marketing my things as "delicious baby accessories hand crafted in contemporary styles and stimulating textures."  Kind of an oxymoron.  I needed the office (now craft room-- poor hubs) to reflect what I'm going for, here.  

So, our Christmas gift to each other was a nice, crispy new office! And a crispy new Apple computer and a masculine(ish) desk for it all to compensate the hubs for giving up his dreams of a "man cave."  

So, without further adieu... enjoy!
I adore my teal pegboard!  I just spray painted it with 2 coats of Valspar primer, and then used 2-3 coats of Valspar teal (matte).  It ended up being 2 cans of primer and 2 cans of teal.  The thread, ribbon, and etc items are placed on various pegboard hooks from Lowe's.

I am in love with this desk- you can find it (in pieces) here, at Office Max- Brenton Studio Collection. I also ADORE my sewing machine, the Brother SE 400- it's as inexpensive as you can find (that will embroider and monogram and connect to your PC).  I found it on Amazon.

You name the color, I've got it.  Except hunter green.  Blech.

Did I mentioned we got a new Apple?  I am loving iPhoto's "edge blur" option.. :)

I have accepted that this is as tidy as my shelves will ever be.  I just have too.  much.  stuff.  But a little edge blur action is just what the doctor ordered!

My husband's 27 inch monitor that he had to have.  Oh, look! I'm reading Sweetish Baby's blog!
There you go!  I love it- it's where I'm writing you from as we speak.

Disclaimer: I apologize for the terribly unprofessional snapshots of the fabrics- my camera batteries are dead, and I needed to check this off of my to-do list... so I opted to use my cell phone!



Sweetish Baby's newest "thing"- baby-shower-gift-in-a-bag!  Included are the following items:
A personalized "gift bag"- that will double as a travel tote.  The decorative bow is an actual hairbow.

A personalized onesie- you name it, you got it.  A name, initials,cute adjective, birthday, zodiac sign.  :)

3 coordinating bows- they will coordinate with the gift bag, the onesie, and the taggie blankie (pictured below). These are medium sized bows- approximately 3 inches wide.

And it's not a Sweetish Baby product if it doesn't include our signature contemporary minky/satin taggie blankie. Also personalized.  :)
I made this prototype for our A-M-A-Z-I-N-G photographer, Rob Milton (out of Katy, TX), that took our family portraits this past weekend- and his gorgeous pregnant wife Ella, who is a pastry chef posing as a high school teacher.  :)   I'll post them to our Sweetish Baby on Etsy very soon!


My Desperate Sewing Room.

Ugh, my sewing room needs a make-over!  Since I'm pretty new to this whole sewing thing, I'm currently using our home office (especially because my machine hooks up to the computer for most of the fonts that I use for monogramming and appliqueing, etc)- which was already boring in the first place.  Now it's just intolerably cluttered (which is NOT like me) and boring. 
Have a look-
 I re-did our master bedroom this summer (see the finished product HERE)... and I think I shall move this sewing room to the top of my wish list of rooms to re-vamp.  This eHow article provides several useful tips in utilizing every square inch in small spaces (ie: half of a home office!)

And, while we're at it- here are some inspiration pictures I'm feelin'-
Now THIS is organized!

So fresh feeling.

If nothing else, I WILL create this pegboard. 

Another awesome pegboard. 


Coming Soon: Boutique Bows!

Working on perfecting my bow, and then a door to a whole new world (coordinating onesies, bows, bibs, baby legs, oh my!) will be opened!  Here's my first try- not too shabby, if I might say so myself!!!
Please excuse the amateur photography- taken with my cell phone at 9pm...


New and Improved: Interchangeable Ties

The ties that you will receive with your Interchangeable Tie Onesie order will now be adorned with a "tag" on the back, just like on Daddy's ties.  :)

New and Improved: Sweetish Baby Loveys

We've tweaked the original design of the taggie-loveys!  They will now include a pacifier clip, created from one of the textured ribbons lining the edges.  Attached will be a ring that can also be utilized as a stroller or toy clip.

I think it's so sweet that this blankie was ordered for a "Dex"... I love when I hear names similar to my little "Dax"!
