We're back!

Hello everyone! This is Jen and I'm back from my family's vacation to Puerto Rico (very nice!), ready to rock and roll.

The Lake Eola Farmer's Market went very well and we sold quite a few onesies and blankets to new moms and moms-to-be. We didn't see any Etsians there but we're hoping to see some people who recognize us from the internet soon. This is a picture of our booth with some of the items displayed! The only negative to the market was that some artists had a chalk contest on the paving the day before -- they were AMAZING -- and we lost several onesies after the wind blew them into the chalk. Nothing a good washing in a machine wouldn't eliminate but it was still a little frustrating.

Our trip to Puerto Rico actually netted us some FANTASTIC vintage saris -- one in a beautiful lavender/pink with gold trim and one in a deep cardinal red with silver. They are seriously some of the most beautiful pieces of material I've seen in a long time and I cannot wait to repurpose them into pillows and even a child's blanket or two. Pictures will definitely be up soon.

As far as upcoming products we're rolling out... our list includes: Organic onesies appliqued with eco-friendly felt, those sari blankets and pillows and an assortment of plush blankets in whatever designs strike our fancy and a beautiful blanket with a hand embroidered rabbit in aqua, cream and tan. We'll definitely have some cupcake items at our next farmer's market (June 1st at Lake Eola), so keep your eyes open for that. We took part in Etsy's newest Baby Shower and drew a wonderful mom of a baby girl, so we'll be rolling out a few gifts for her and her new daughter.

Anyway, I hope to have some more pictures up soon of our new designs and products -- look for them by the middle of next week! Take care :)
