I heart Tiny Sprouts

I love hand embroidery! So much so that my dear friend Heidi bought me an embroidery how-to book this past year for my birthday. Sadly I've done nothing more than look at the pretty pictures, but I have plans for at least learning the basics in 2009, yup along with that photography class we're taking :)

Which brings me to...Tiny Sprouts!!! I big puffy heart Tiny Sprouts. Tracey, the creative genius behind Tiny Sprouts is such a sweetheart and in this day and age of mass-produced merchandise, I love that she hand-dyes all the cotton herself. One of my favorite pictures of Grace is from Fall 2007 and she was wearing the cutest little wheat cord dress from Tiny Sprouts. So if you're in the market for some unique gifts from newborn to toddlers, check out Tiny Sprouts. Everything in their site is 20% off right now, so you're bound to find some great deals! I just ordered the sweetest itty bitty newborn set as a baby shower gift and I can't wait to see it in person. I even had to skip the eco-friendly gift wrap just so I could ogle over it before giving it away :)

Here are some of my current favorites:

Cotton Candy Pique Dress with Bubble Gum Ric Rac (I'm thinking...add wellies and a cute umbrella and sing your little heart out in the rain!) Itty Bitty Apron (you know I had to throw a little apron in there ;) Milk Pique Dress with Bubble Gum Ric Rac (such cute names, don't you think?!) Pique shortalls (this adorable little guy reminds me so much of Grace when she was that age...same blue eyes, same chubby cheeks, same sweet smile...ahhh) So check out Tiny Sprouts and Have Yourself a Fun New Year! I'm off to organize my disaster of a wallet (one of my 2009 goals) into the cute mustard yellow one I just got :)

It was so good to see you guys! Carson is just a little ham! I LOVE that Tarzan impression! After you guys left, Grace kept running to the door and saying "Carson, where ah you?" :)
Can't wait to see you again in a few months. And thank you SO much for the sweet tea set! Her first and definitely a keepsake!!
