Things to keep me busy

Ive been keeping busy with my newest obsession sewing, so here are a few things I have been doing. My mom is chillin up in heaven with her mouth wide open ASTONISHED that her little girl loves to sew!!! My goal is to open an etsy shop, make some side cash and contribute financially to the family for the first time since I became a mom! With that said...
CALLING ALL CREATIVE MINDS!!!
I need some help coming up with a product name for myself/etsy shop. I want it to be original, fit my personality but not baby specific because I hope to further my horizons later on. Leave me a comment if you have any ideas, some crazy examples that I like are: Angry Chicken, Spoonflower, Rockstar Lullabies, Sew Bee It...totally random I know.
I got my first paying customer...HOLLA! The baseball blankie was for her, normally I would never buy this material but hey, whatev. Today I just got a 2nd order from someone who wants 3 blankies w/ matching bows!! Im excited about that so I just wanted to share!


newborn bows
bows inside with babys name
I lost my camera case, whipped this up real quick
matching burp rag with blankie, stiched with yellow thread...there was a border but I went ape shi on it...long story
thin layer of batting inside, perfect to lay down and play or wrap baby up
Customer lives in chicago, obsessed with the Cubs
I guess its my personal touch, I usually add babys name on blankie, it looks better in person I swear
No batting in this one, its SUPER comfy


IM TAKING ORDERS!! If you want any of these yummy, comfy blankies just let me know. Leave a comment and I'll get back to you about price and timeline...YAH! i feel so buisness like right now!

I like sew bee it! How fun I can't wait until next year then i will be at home and can do more things like that.

On your last entry you wanted a memory but since I didn't know you until recently I will give you one about Dustin. So in 9th grade my friends Nikki and Amy and I all liked Dustin. We would call him constantly to do a four way and talk. So one night Dustin asked if we wanted to hear a funny joke and we said sure. Well then went on to say, " What does an elephant use for a tampon?..... A sheep." All of us girls were so disgusted. We laughed but thought that was so gross. I wrote it down in my journal how disgusted I was and how I didn't know if I could talk to him again. I think we were more embarrassed then anything (you know usually jr high you start). Anyways just a funny story I will always remember.

look at you...you little sewing she devil!! your stuff is adorable!! loves it! what a great way to contribute to the family. congrats for your first business deals! i'm sure you're only going to get more and more requests. you know, i love to come up with clever names, so i will put my thinking cap on, but so far, i too, like sew be it. i love how you add the name! did you write that name on the box??? cuz if so, you have really amazing hand writing abilities.

as far as the carnival goes, we would love to have you help. thanks for offering. just how involved do you want to be? right now we are trying to assign each food and game booth a committee head which requires a lot of time and work. once we get those in line we will start taking volunteers that can't put as much time in and we will be placing them in different committees and such. just let me know and we will sign ya up! thanks again.

so it looks like the only booth left without a committee head is the duck hunt for toddlers. would you be interested in taking charge of this? it would involve getting a duck pond(baby pool) and rubber duckies with numbers on the bottom. each number has a prize. you could do it however you wanted really...
