Has the cocktail hour become part of your daily routine since the Covid-19 outbreak? It has for us! We aren't picky about our drinks either, sometimes we have Limoncello, sometimes a Cider (Stella Artois makes a good one but so does Aldi). My favorites of all, are the pretty drinks! A Cosmopolitan or a French Martini along with a pretty cocktail napkin for me!
Looking to add some fun to the quarantine? God knows we need it! We've added these cute Quarantini cocktail napkins to site along with some Quaranvino and Quaranita napkins too. I think a little fun and some alcohol is what will get us all through this! Stay healthy!

One of my dear customers came to me needing a gift for her new grandchild. Great, it’s a boy right? I mean this family all they have is boys…….not this time. It’s a girl!!! It’s a Stella! Stella…..I love that name.
I wanted to come up with something really pretty and girly for Stella since she is the first girl born into this family in a long time. I like to come up with a color combination first and then start pulling items and fabrics from my inventory. I was thinking soft yellow and gray. I had plenty of fabric in those colors and some items but I was not feeling it. Next color combination idea, aqua & pink. Pulled the fabrics pink polka dots and aqua chevron. Looking through my inventory I found an aqua seersucker dress from Mint (Sweet Little Things), perfect! Added aqua seersucker bloomers, aqua and pink minky lovie, a bib and a burp cloth set. BTW, Grammy loves aqua!
With a dress, a little girl needs seersucker bloomers. I always have multiple sizes and colors of seersucker bloomers from Mint (Sweet Little Things) in stock. I think it is so darling to see a name or pretty design embroidered on the bum of a pair of bloomers.
We felt with Stella being the very first girl in the family she needed a few more things. So we made her a matching minky lovie and a bib & burp cloth set to go with her cute little outfit. Of course we used aqua and pink so she will be all color coordinated (start them early!).
The minky lovie is super soft! Babies love them! It is so pretty in aqua and trimmed with pink grosgrain ribbon with white polka dots.
Appliquéd Bib & Burp Cloth Set
The burp cloth is a nice absorbent Gerber cloth diaper embellished with Stella’s name and a pretty sprig of flowers. Our bibs are a 2 ply with super soft cotton on the front and absorbent chenille on the back. It is also embellished with her pretty name and an appliqué flower sprig.

Over the years I have been lucky enough to establish some really great clients. Some of these clients have been with me for so long they feel comfortable enough just call me up and tell me ‘I need a personalized baby gift and I’d like to spend $X amount’. They know that is all they have to do and I will take care of the rest.
Recently, one of my clients (who also happens to be a dear friend) asked me to make a baby gift for a set of twins. I think this is the 3rd time I have been asked to create something for a set of twins. The other two times the gifts were cute but I am always trying to one up myself. I think this latest gift is where I will stop trying to one up myself on the twin gifts. I love how it turned out!
This set comes with a layette gown and a new born hat. This set is also available for babies without a twin and also available with a bloomer or boxer as seen in the photo below.
Obviously this gift was made for girls but this little ensemble could easily be made for boys too. I would just use a layette gown that does not have ruffles and more masculine font for the appliqué.
