XL Wet Bag Sale!

Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone! The pouring rain just stopped here, the sun has come out in full force, and all of the kids are either napping or resting. Life is good :) We're off to a bbq in a few hours - looking forward to some steak and perhaps an adult beverage (I'm SO happy to not be pregnant any more!)

Before I forget, I've got a bunch of XL wet bags on sale in my Etsy shop until 5/31 - get ready for the pool and beach!

Also recently listed these cuties:

Jungle Stripe (17" x 20")

Aqua Lava Flowers (14" x 14")

Traffic Jam (9" x 7")

Vroom! Vroom! (9" x 7")

I've also been taking custom orders for bags made with Moda's Wonderland fabric (my latest fabric obsession). This one below is an XL made with the tomato Tea Time and has 2 side straps (I'd love any input you all have as to the best strap set-up for the XL : 16" x 22" bags - 2 side straps are popular, but customers also often request a long strap that goes side - side or 2 top straps / handles like a tote).

And here's a matching small wet bag (with the GORGEOUS Metamorphosis / Butterfly fabric) and a burp cloth I added in as a little extra (turns out that when I make the XL bags, I get a scrap piece of fabric that is perfect for the burp cloths - expect to see more of these soon in my shops!)

Off to get ready for the bbq! Have a great weekend!

Forgot to mention in my last post that I'm offering FREE US SHIPPING on all orders placed through my etsy shop this weekend (thru Sunday night). Have a great weekend!! :) Kris

Our newest addition :)

Hi everyone! Yes... I'm still here - and no longer pregnant! YIPPEE!!!

Baby Matthew James joined us on his due date (4/4) and was a healthy 8 lb, 5 oz. and 21 inches. Neither of us had any complications / issues, so we were able to come home on time. He's such an alert and happy little guy! Can't believe that he's our last, but I can't fathom having another one... I'm definitely savoring every snuggle with this little guy!

This past month has been one BIG blur... managing the three little ones on less than optimum levels of sleep has been a bit rough, but I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel :) Matthew is sleeping longer stretches at night and we've gotten our daytime routine pretty much down. I decided to start potty training Sydney (3 y/0) once Matthew reached 1 month old and she's doing incredibly well :) The first couple of days were rough, but now she's a champ (at home at least... outside is a different story, but we've got the summer to work on it!). This means she can go to preschool in the fall! YEY!

I'm also starting to sew a bit again - oh how I've missed it! So many projects that I'd love to do - all in due time :) I'm itching to whip up some skirts for spring and summer, but really would prefer to get a bit closer to my pre-baby weight. I think I'll get the go-ahead from the doc next week to resume running, so that will help!

In case you're curious of new arrivals to the shop, here's a few:

I had actually planned on finishing these before Matthew came - had everything cut out, pinned and ready to sew on Friday night, thinking I had the weekend to finish them up. Then the next morning I went into labor... 6 weeks later and I've finally been able to get them done! Feels great!

I also have my website shop all stocked up (new designs!)- all wet bags are $2 off through the end of May, and shipping is free for all orders over $50!

Off to bed now - will pop back in soon with some new fabric and pattern finds. I love this time of the year - just wish I could make it to market to see it all in person!
