handmade for baby.

a friend of mine and her husband recently had a little girl. so to welcome their new bundle of joy, i was determined to give them something handmade. now if i wasn't swamped with grad school work and a million other life things, i would have made her one of my baby knits.

instead i decided to reach out to one of my absolute favorite online spots...a place where i can get lost for hours looking at the most beautifully handcrafted homemade items....etsy! as much as i love to craft my own handmade items, i equally love supporting those who share this similar passion of mine.

it definitely was a tough choice choosing from the hundreds of thousands of items on etsy. i saw so many adorable things! but i stumbled upon stitches-n-smiles, who makes the most adorable custom monogrammed baby bloomers, and i was immediately sold!

this is a sample image of the bloomers that i ordered for my friend's baby (tutu not included!). i chose the same font that is pictured, but went with black embroidering as it matched the dress i was also giving her.

when the bloomers arrived the other day, i felt like a little kid at christmas time opening the package. they turned out exactly how i had imagined them. i was so pleased!!

as i was wrapping them up along with the dress, i stood there and thought there's no way i can give this to her without a card. so, alas, i did end up making something handmade...with a little help from my photoshop friend.

a little note card for baby nora. :-) i love fonts. and probably spent too much time trying to find the right one. but i settled on the one below. can you guess the font that i used? think cartoons...
