A new product

I work several jobs; I am a full time mother, wife, and babysitter as well as a budding entrepreneur.  My sweet baby is a boy, so I cannot put cutesy, girlie stuff on him to model.  But the baby I watch, Harper, is a girl! And this affords the the options of having a real life girlie girl model.  Today I designed a new product, a cute little headband with flower.  I made is during the kids naptime today and when Harper woke up… it was photo shoot time!  🙂

Here are a few pics of the new product; as modeled by Harper 🙂


Working and working…

I really am working, I promise 🙂  I have recently redesigned my blog space; hope you like it.  I am working on finishing my custom orders for the month and then I will be off to pattern writing land!  Pattern writing, pattern writing and more pattern writing hopefully.  I have many things I’d like to see work themselves onto paper; hopefully it will all come to fruition.

I know I have been slacking on the blog front this month and I will try to do better in March.  I plan to do at least 2 posts a week, but no promises though.  I have been trying to train my son to sleep/nap in a toddler bed and the first part is going smoothly, the napping part… not so much 😦  He just doesn’t want to stay in bed, darn little booger 🙂  So with him being awake ALL DAY LONG, it has made non-baby watching work very difficult to accomplish.  But I am still here and still making headway, although that headway is not as smooth or swift as I’d like.  Pray for me my friends, trying times are ahead I suspect. 🙂

Until next time…

I love….

I love many things; Crocheting, knitting, baking, playing video games, all of them are very enjoyable!  So many things demand the time of a mother/entrepreneur and finding time to do the things that need doing and balancing that with time for myself can be very daunting!  I am trying to find a rhythm and I think I have found my solution… maybe. 🙂

I have “decided” to “work” four days a week, Monday-Thursday, and take the weekend off.  I need some me time; time to spend with my husband and son and also time to work on new and exciting things!  I also decided I will take two months a year and close my shop just to work on new things.  My pattern is starting to sell (thank the Lord!) and I feel that is going to be the way to get my little business really thriving.  So I need to start writing and creating little things, but with all the orders that have been coming in (thank you each and every customer!) I haven’t had time to do any experimenting or create anything new 😦  So with my new schedule I hope to remedy that.

Effective March 1st, LBDFxbg will not take any custom orders until April 1st.  This will allow me to create new things for everyone and I can broaden my catalog for all! Yay! If you’d like any items that need to be done for March, please submit them no later than February 19th so I can have them done for you asap.  Thanks for bearing with me as I get all the kinks wrinkled out of this crazy construction faze of LBD 🙂

Happy Valentines Day and hope you all have a wonderful day with your loved ones!

Until next time!
