The Pink Llama Shop.

We would like to welcome back The Pink Llama Shop! We are so excited to feature your beautiful designs again!

Friends, I don’t know if you all recall but back in August we featured The Pink Llama Shop’s personalized sock monkey onesie. It was a huge hit! Olive wears her onesie all the time and we get a ton of comments on how cute it is.

Isn’t it fabulous?!!

We are proud to be featuring The Pink Llama Shop‘s Ivory Rosette headband today. This headband is so gorgeous.

Every little detail is so well crafted. We love the button in the center and the bird nesting just pulls the whole look together.

 

This stunning headband would be perfect to compliment wedding attire (think flower girl),  pulling a Christmas outfit together, attending special functions or anytime.

Olive wore her headband out to pick apples, because who says you can’t look adorable doing so, right?!!

We would also like to take this opportunity to show off this sweet little Turkey Clip, also from The Pink Llama Shop! Totally perfect for Thanksgiving!

 

Please check out The Pink Llama Shop today to see Jodie’s newest creations. She offers alot of variety and personalization in her shop.

You can also join on facebook to take part in their giveaways, coupon codes and specials!

Happy Thursday.

Melissa Love Handmade Dolls

So excited to be featuring the talented Melissa Love.

Melissa makes handmade custom dolls and plushies and she sent Olive the sweetest custom doll I have ever laid my eyes upon.

 She is just so adorable and was created to absolute perfection!

Olive LOVES her doll, which her brother named Junie. Her pretty red hair reminds him of his favorite book  character Junie B. Jones.

We though it the perfect time to have our first ever tea party with little Junie this afternoon.

Olive had so much fun! She has just learned to feed her dolls and it’s just the sweetest.

Melissa offers two girl style dolls and a guy doll as well. We chose the girl doll style #2.

We were able to choose the style doll we wanted, as well as her hair style and color, her eyes open or shut and also her eye color. On top of all of those creative choices we were also able to choose the fabrics for her shirt and skirt! A totally customizable doll rocks!

I had the opportunity to do a Q & A with Melissa and was so inspired by her answers.

How did you get started?

Melissa: I first got started sewing a few years ago when I was interested in learning how to quilt. My grandmother showed me a few things with quilting and my love for sewing has only grown. While I was pregnant I started to notice things intended for children and babies a lot more often. Everything I saw I thought, “Would my baby enjoy that?” I have always thought that cloth dolls were a great way to be artistic and very child friendly at the same time. So while I was pregnant I tried my hand at my first plushies (what a disaster!), then came the dolls. I have been trying to get my dolls perfected for over a year now and I am still growing. I love the idea that I can create one of a kind things that children will enjoy all over the world. 

What is your inspiration behind your dolls and plushies?

Melissa: I get my inspiration from fabric, my baby girl, vintage dolls, and Japanese culture.
Any words of wisdom for any newbie crafters?

Melissa: Well I still feel like a newbie crafter myself so I’m not sure if anything I say will be too helpful. However, one thing I have definitely had to teach myself is patience. I used to get so frustrated when something didn’t turn out right! I have learnt over the last couple of years that I just need to get out of the sewing room and do something else if that happens. Once I come back to my project in a day or two I always feel re-inspired to make my project better than I originally wanted.

What do you like to do when your not crafting?

Melissa: If I’m not crafting I love to spend time with my baby girl who is almost ten months old now. I also have a love for illustration. I may not be a professional when it comes to drawing but it is definitely my first love. When I’m not cooped up in the house doing things though my hubby and I love to take walks around our small town.

Crawler Covers Envy.

Really, we just love these Crawler Covers and can’t stop talking about them!

I love that they stay put and keep her legs warm too, plus they look really really cute with everything she wears. Case in point, these adorable pink baby Converse sneaks.

Crawler Covers would look so great with Halloween costumes, they can even wear these on their arms under tee’s and they look fabulous! Olive will be wearing a pair this Halloween along with her Little Red Riding Hood costume I’m making. We can’t wait!

I put together a little collage below of Olive modeling a few of her Crawler Covers but i highly recommend you visit them yourself and see the other selections too! Let them know Olive sent you!
