I did it.
I joined the BANDWAGON.

The bandwagon of stay-at-home mother’s who need an outlet {or in this case to supplement the family income}.
It’s called Happy Scraps.
I’ve been in my sweatshop every waking hour for the last 2 weeks putting these little things together.
I put a little “widget” over there too——–>

    You are too good! Knox and I are partial to the sleeping dog. They all look great. Next child of mine will have some Happy Scraps birps (which is a must because every one of his 20 burps now has his name plastered on it)!

    Darby those are too cute! You should bump up the price and sell them to one of those little expensive baby shops. They are all over Tuscaloosa. I am sure your area has their fair share.

    I am so impressed by you I can't even stand it. You have THREE little ones and find time to SEW&SELL! Do your days have more hours in them than the rest of us??? You are an inspiration. Thank you!

    Hey D! I’m with Laura Matthews – can you do t-shirts for boys?? Any of the designs would be precious on a boys shirt. I would love to put together a custom order for shirts for the boys. I am putting LA to work doing some shorts for them too – I’m so glad my friends can sew!! Let me know what you think about the shirts and how much they would run… you go girl!! LP

    Have I labeled you the Proverbs 31 woman yet?!?! Good grief…your lamp does NOT go out at night! I LOVE all of them…I won’t be needing them for myself (whew) (I mean for any more babies!!) but I think I will be needing some for a very sweet sister in law in Feb!! (for Tegan!)
