Littlest Sweet Pea is born

     So, I am now a stay-at-home mom again!  I do love it, but with a baby there isn't much to do.  I do like the quiet but I'm starting to get antsy.  So with my antsiness, I began surfing the web.  I discovered  It's like ebay but for hand made items.  In my delirium, I thought "I can totally make that!"  So why not.  I've got lots of craft items from other things that I thought "I can totally make that!"  The fact that I had a giant bin full of ribbon, material, beads, etc. didn't register.  Somehow I forgot about all of the other crafts that I had thought about making or had started yet never finished.  Maybe this time will be different.  We'll just have to see.
     The first thing that I started today is called a lovie.  It's a small version of a baby blanket with ribbons on all of the sides.  I found a lot of samples on etsy and found a few that I really liked.  I had all of the materiels already, so I got out the dusty sewing machine and got to work.  I hadn't used the sewing machine in years but it was like riding a bike!

     I officially opened up my own store.  After trying several different store names (they were already being used) Littlest Sweet Pea was born.  I always call the kids my little sweet pea, so the name was perfect.  Fortunatley, no one else had thought of it first.
