Custom order

Here is a custom order I just finished up. It's a set of baby shower invitations. Mom and dad to be are big Calgary Stampeders fans, so the person throwing the shower requested something Stamps themed. I came up with a couple different samples, but this was the favourite:




If I had known the birthdate of the baby (still on it's way, but will be here before the shower), I would have put that on the back, for more of a keepsake, but instead used the shower date.

I think they're super cute!!

Custom invitations are some of my favourite orders to work on.

I'm with the band!

On June 3rd, we attended the CD release party of my brother's band called The Burn Ins. It was a great show, and we all had lots of fun.

The littlest Schroeder wouldn't be able to fit any of the band t-shirts (YET! They are having one made for her), so I made her a shirt before we left for the show. It was cute and simple:

The front:


The back:

I just cut some freezer paper on my cricut to make a stencil, ironed it on, and then used fabric paint to paint it.

She had a BLAST that night. You've never seen a little girl dance so much. Looking through the photos from that night you see a big variety of dance moves, but here's a few of my favorite shots of her dancing to the band:




She got the whole band to sign her t-shirt as well:

If you are interested in hearing some music from the band (seeing videos as well), check out the band's facebook page. From there you can link to their youtube stream and hear some of their new cd (which is awesome by the way). Their official website is still under construction.

Sneak Peek

I have so many ideas for these hats, but just showing one for now.

We are starting a series of applique knit hats.

These hats are knit base (any colour you would like) with a felt applique stitched on. The possibilities are endless, and we can do custom orders, or you can pick from some of the stock appliques/colours we are working on doing up.


We will be listing some stock ones of these as soon as the postal lock out is over, but will be posting a custom choices a little later.

They will be available in the following sizes:

0-3 Months
3-6 Months
6-12 Months
1-3 Years
4-10 Years

There will be the ability to choose your hat colour, as well as your applique design (and colours).

They will be sold for $22. If you pre-order prior to us getting the listing up... they will only cost $18!

We will be taking pre-orders for the mermaid and cupcake hats as well. I have updated both of those listings with prices now. Please contact us at if you would like to pre-order. Pre-orders will be started almost immediately, and will be ready to ship shortly after the postal lock out. The turn around might be a little longer than our normal turn around, but you are getting a steal of a deal.

Sneak Peek

I have a whole host of projects I've done, but haven't had a chance to get modelled pictures of yet, so I've decided to start posting one a day on here until I can get proper photos.

With 3 weeks to go til my due date, I have switched gears to products for a newborn shoot.... so many things won't be listed until after the baby has arrived (as soon as I find the time to start taking orders).

This is one of my favourite props I've seen... a mermaid cocoon! I love the tail, and I added a starfish to the matching headband:


It will be available in:

0-3 months
3-6 months
6-9 months

as well as DOLL size (for those little girls who love dressing their dolls up - I might end up making a few different doll size ones).

These sets will be sold for $35 in our shop. If you would like to pre-order one, anytime before the listing goes up, you can get it for $30!! The turn around may be a little longer than our typical (about 2 weeks, but also influenced by the postal lock out), but you are getting an awesome deal. If you would like to pre-order, please e-mail us at

May Project

I still haven't finished my May project. It was going to be a maternity skirt, but at this point, I'm tempted not to do it, since I only have about a month left.

So instead I think I'll carry that project over to June, and I really want to try shirring a few dresses. So watch for updates on that. Hoping to tackle that this week, now that my quilt is done.

Shirring is something I've been intending to do for 3 years now.... I have all the supplies, just have to do it. :) I'll post some fabrics later today for "June's" project....

Other projects on the to-do list this month is mermaid tail towels (to use as favours for my daughter's birthday party), as well as a few items for the nursery.
