the bapron

awhile back, i found a fantastic tutorial for something called a bapron (baby apron). it's been one of my most favorite baby gifts to make and give.

these are the most recent ones i made... for my friend sarah
who will be bringing a baby boy into this world very soon

water for Christmas

did you know that almost 1 billion people around the world are living without access to clean and safe drinking water? that is not okay. though it seems overwhelming, you and i can make a small impact... add that to so many others making a small impact and we've created a HUGE impact! 

it really only takes about $20 to provide a person with clean water for 20 years!!

i have a few of my items for sale in the etsy shop where 100% of the proceeds will go directly to fund clean water projects around the world. YOU can do some Christmas shopping while helping to get clean water to those who don't have it!

have a peek at the items i've donated

so... yeah... it's been a long time

my life and the life of olive & everette has changed a great deal over the last year. here's a bit of the story...

olive & everette actually started back in 2008 when my friend allison and I decided to start selling hand-embroidered burp cloths and diaper cakes. read more here. our business has grown and changed over time. the last year, neither of us has had the time to put into o&e due to various things associated with our roles as wives & moms.

allison has decided not to continue in the partnership, as she doesn't have the time to put into it anymore. however, i feel like i do have the time to put into it now, and will be continuing to run olive & everette by myself!

i have to take a moment to publicly say a huge thank you to allison. she was the one who, in the very beginning, was so encouraging and positive about my work. i would not be the artist that i am today if we had not started olive & everette. allison and i continue to be close friends. i cherish our memories in doing o&e together. we have grown closer because of it. allison, i love you friend!!

i now have a working home studio. yay!! tons of ideas are swirling in my head and i will be developing some new projects in the days and months ahead. please stay tuned, as some exciting things will be coming to this blog!!
