Baby Gift Idea~

We threw a baby shower for a friend of mine on Saturday. She's having a little girl, and I wanted to give her something unique and personal. Here is what I came up with...

I took two of my drawings and printed them onto iron-on transfer sheets, then I added them to some little onesies. Aren't they precious? She adored them.






Then, because presentation is EVERYTHING, I found these fun chinese takeout boxes at Michael's. Filled one with pink tissue and tucked the onesies inside. Added the box to the top of a package of diapers (what expectant mom doesn't LOVE diapers?) and VOILA!



The ladies at the shower went goo-goo for them. (Baby shower, goo-goo, get it?) I just love that my drawings are so well received. I am going to have many products featuring my artwork in my soon-to-open Etsy store (look for it this month - along with a grand-opening giveaway!)
Have a lovely Wednesday~

Oh my goodness...these are to die for! I hope you are planning on just selling some of your art prints in your Etsy store. You are a wonderful artist.
I finally got around to doing another tutorial...it's a free font from Allsorts, which you can use to make a darling banner for any holiday. I know I, and everyone else, have appreciated your wonderful tutorials in the past. : )

Hello, my name is Abbey, I found your blog on "Jody's Cottage."

These little onesies are so cute - what a beautiful job you do! I can't wait to see your Etsy!

I saw the same little animal carnival wrapping at Michaels. So, so cute - I bought the tissue paper.

: o )

Again, you have a lovely blog!
