Ice Cream Sprinkles

Isn't she lovely......?

I honestly thought I would just sort through my fabric today! You know....color coordinate, cut down scraps into quilt pieces, etc...and then I found this ice cream fabric. I loved it the first time I used and think I may love it even more this time! Needless to say, I didn't complete the intended task after getting sidetracked with this little project. I haven't sewn down the button yet. I'm still deciding if I like it or not but with or without it I think this is just adorable.

I know everyone else if unveiling thier fall fabrics right now (It is after all nearly September) but when you live in the land of the perpetual flip-flop like I do it's ice cream sprinkles nearly all year long!!

There is a good reason God decided to give me two boys and not girls......I would NEVER get anything done. I would spend all my time making "girly" things.

I hope to have a couple just like this listed on the Ready To Ship page and my Etsy Store soon!

Care Package

Well...I haven't gone away to camp but isn't a package from your mom always a care package! These adorable liners came in the mail today (thanks mom!) and I LOVE them. I definately see baking in the near future! Included as well was an adorable dinosaur shaped sandwich cutter for the boys. Dinosaurs are big in our house these days so I'm sure the cutter will be a winner.

Thanks again know how much I love to get a package in the mail!!

Love the liners? You can find them here.....


Ragamuffins are coming! I am super excited about these new quilts! Rag Quilts have been around for ages but adding great new modern fabrics really brings them back with style! This quilt is Lovey sized at 17" x 17" and is for a special friend with an adorable new baby boy! I can't wait to give it to her!! I like this size because it's great for covering up a newborn but transitions well into a perfectly sized lovey for baby and toddler! Best of all...this thing loves being washed and dried and gets better and better each time! What could be more carefree?

I'm still contemplating sizes etc so they won't be listed at Etsy or on the website until I've worked that out! Tenatively I'm thinking about having a Lovey size, traditional blanket size and Crib size. We'll see.........

Custom Creations

I thought I would share a few pics of a custom order from my Etsy site that I'm working on! I love getting custom's so much fun to get a glimpse into someone else's vision!

This order is for Nursery Storage Cubbies....three of a gorgeous Heather Bailey floral with a coordinating jelly bean pattern and matching solid green. I took a few pics of the work in progress and one of the finished project too! One down....two to go!
I can see them in my mind filled with little diapers, wipes, blankets and all the other millions of baby needs!

Thank you Beena....I hope I'll get a pic of them in action!

Loose ends....

These Burpee Bundles and Everyday Bibs have been begging to be tied up with thier tags for selling and now it's finally done! I'll have them listed on the Ready To Ship page asap and some others will be listed at my Etsy shop too!

The Green Girlfriend dress is so adorable that I have to order more of this fabric! I have visions of using it for Burpee Bundles, Everyday Bibs, Rufflers, Baby Bunz and more, more, more!

All Work and No Play

I did all the vacation clean-up I could stand today and was really itching to get my hands on the sewing that's what I did! The kids took a great nap and I had a lot of fun making a few things. I love the way the Rufflers look all packaged up with ribbon and a tag! They really make a mommy want to have a little girl.
Speaking of something to make you wish for a little girl....I LOVE these pinafore dresses!
I had the fabric cut already so they were just screaming to be sewn! It's really fun playing with the fabric combinations since they are reversible.

More sewing tomorrow....can't wait!

Vacation...Sweet Vacation!

We're back! What a fun vacation. It was a super busy week but we all had a great time! The kids did so great and I think they would rather live in a hotel than thier own house. Jacob loved sleeping in the "big" bed and Jackson was right at home in his usual spot on the floor! I'm beginning to wonder if he'll ever sleep in a bed again! It was really special to watch them meeting thier Gigi (that's great-grandma) for the first time and they settled in like they have been there all thier lives. We meet a whole host of relatives and friends, played ball in the yard, toured the Kohler showroom, walked in the gardens at the hotel/resort, went to a Brewers game in Milwaukee, etc, etc......

The best part (one that I am paying for now by being on a strict rice and steamed veggies diet) was the food! We ate and we ate and we ate!

Now, of course, there is laundry to get caught up on, routines to settle back into, LOTS of sewing to finish and more! A small price to pay for a great vacation!!

Two More Things...

First thing...

For those of you who don't know....I LOVE getting fun things in the mail! was my lucky day. Look at the gorgeous remnant bundles that came today! I ordered them from Scrappy Chics ( ) and they are everything I expected and more! Thank you ladies! I can already envision the gorgeous quilts that will be coming from these! I'll post one when it's finished and you'll be able to find them in my Etsy shop as well as my regular website too.

Second thing...

We're gearing up around here for a big trip up north to visit Gigi and Aunt Jodi! Grandma and Pops are coming too and we are planning on having some big fun.....look out Manitowoc Zoo, here we come!

In preperation for the trip I've been talking to the boys all week about going on the plane. They have only flown once and of course were much smaller then so they don't remember. Josh got them these adorable miniature planes to play with at the airport (always good to have something new) and we are just hoping to not have any major meltdowns. It will be fruit snacks and coloring books the whole way if necessary!

The New Bag

Isn't she lovely!? I am so excited about this new bag! Now I just need the time and reason to leave the house with it. It's one of Amy Butler's newest patterns and I really enjoyed making it. This is the shoulder bag shown here and I'll be working on the handbag as soon as I can find a little more time! So much fabric and so little time......

Out To Lunch

The boys had a lunch date with thier best buds today (they let us mommies tag along) and a good time was had by all! Thanks to the power of a play area, we adults actually got to have a conversation and eat our lunch all in one sitting! Jacob was more interested in when we would eat "wunch" and Jackson couldn't get to the slide fast enough.After lunch and playtime all the boys got thier hands painted before we left. Blue Thomas trains all around. Never the follower, Jackson branched out and went for the Nemo!

Here we go...... here we go...but where to start?
There are a couple of reasons I thought this "blog" thing might be fun. First, of course, it's a great way to share the everyday things with our friends and family who are all varying distances from us. Second, I thought it would be a fun way to share some of the neat things going on at TwinMommy Productions!
So for all my friends and family who have to listen to me when I've made something new and want to I'll have a place to do that without driving you all crazy! Bear with me through the learning curve and let's have some fun!
You may wonder what this picture has to do with this post? Absolutely nothing....but aren't they cute in thier swimtrunks at the beach? They are after all the reason for TwinMommy Productions so I say they get all the air time they want!
Happy Friday!
