Stockins Stockins Stockins!


I made stacks of these today. Not sure exactly how I will finish them off. Contrasting fabric cuff and loop? Rick rack? Bells? Fur? All of the above? None of the above?

Last year's versions were cut from a vintage baby quilt and had gold wings attached.

This year's models are recycled from vintage tablecloths. Some may make it to the shop, but most are gonna hold the cookies and goodies I'll be handing out for Christmas.
I'm considering putting together some stocking and bib sets.

We'll see. I'm running out of time!

Happy Birthday, Mommy!


Today is my mama's birthday. She's a very special lady. So talented and generous. I miss her dearly now that I live several hours away.

She makes gorgeous wreaths:

Neat ATCs that she uses as business cards:

And amazing decoupage suitcases (vintage cases AND vintage images!):

Visit her blog and Etsy shop.

Love you, Mama! Hope you are having a beautiful birthday.

I super Heart AnomalyJewelry on Etsy!

I had a brief interesting morning conversation about Astrology.

The boyf speculated that there must be people who are so into it, they would attempt to conceive at a time that would have the baby born into a certain disposition. Hey, it's morning, you have to talk about something.
We mainly called shenanigans on the idea that everyone born during a certain window of time has the same personality.

I'm an Aquarius with a Cancer rising, if anyone's keeping score.

I personally wish my parents would have kept it in their pants for a couple weeks longer so I could wear, with accuracy, Anomaly Jewelry's Zodiac Kids Pisces necklace. Itta make-a me crazy!


Or better still, maybe they could have gotten it on a couple weeks sooner and I could honestly sport the wickedly awesome Capricorn necklace!


OR, I could put aside my mermaid obsession and regret not being born a Gemini, Virgo, or Two-Headed Kitten.




Anomaly Jewelry is offering free shipping until Christmas. Do it. Do it. Do it.

Finally, Blogging!


I'm finally jumping in the game to blog about the children's clothes I make, my crafty interests and all the neat people I admire that give me such inspiration!

A dear friend of mine just single-handedly started designing a web page for Everso and really lit the fire under me to start with the writing. Thanks, Kim!

I'm gonna cop out and throw up some links until I have more time to get down to some real gabbing.

*clothREvisited featured our Kiss Baby Gown in July

*Our etsy shop was featured in an article for Associated Content about the Best Etsy Shops for Creative, Cute Kids Clothes in early October

*Green Baby Giggles reviewed our reversible bibs & recycled t-shirt baby gowns for their blog devoted to Earth-friendly baby items in October

*And a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be interviewed about Everso Clothing as Venus Zine's Reader-of-the-Week

Thanks, y'all & I'll be back with all sorts of good pictures & chit-chat soon enough!
