Polka Dot Minky Baby Blankets
Monday, September 24, 2007
We have found a beautiful little Etsy shop with the most luxurious minky baby blankets for boys and girls. You better hurry...I am buying this chocolate and aqua polka dot minky baby blanket today for a friend's new little baby boy! (Don't worry, Liz of Sugarplum Creations says she can make more.)
Introducing our crafty Polka Dot Mom of the week, Liz of Sugarplum Creations! Liz is a work-at-home mommy from Oregon with two precious little princesses, ages 5 and 2 1/2. Sugarplum Creations was started about a year and a half ago when she began sewing again for her own little ones. As all of her friends were having babies, she loved the idea of creating that special gift uniquely for them. She was then urged to start selling my creations, and stumbled upon Etsy in February. Liz says she could not be happier with her number one, most important job of raising her children.
Liz writes, "I've always loved to create. My mom, bless her heart, is not crafty at all, but I have several aunts who used to craft with me when I was young. We would make christmas ornaments and sew together. Those are some of my happiest childhood memories. I lost touch with my "crafty side" as I got older, and it was definitely put on hold when I got married and started a family. When I started creating again, for my girls, I realized how much I had missed it. As a mom, it can be easy to lose yourself as you are completely wrapped up in doing for everyone else. It is so empowering, for me, to know that I can be a mom and a wife, while still having something just for me. Since starting Sugarplum Creations, I feel like I am productive in other ways too, I know I'm a better person for it. And I love that I am teaching my girls that they can do whatever they set out to do."
We love Liz - she is one of those great, funny moms who you e-mail back and forth with and laugh out loud as you share the "joys" of motherhood. We both seem to be always working late at night and sewing while everyone else sleeps. Is this true of every crafty mom? YES!
Liz's minky blankets come in so many beautiful fabric patterns and colors. Our favorite, her polka dot minky baby blanket, can be custom made in pink or aqua dots. Her blankets feature super-soft patterned minky fabrics back with luxurious swirl minky in so many color options. Each measures approximately 29" x 34" and are perfect for the stroller, car seat, nap time, snuggle time, tummy time...you name it!
Shop at Sugarplum Creations before October 31st and receive 15% off your order when you mention "Polka Dot Mom" at check-out (Liz will send you a revised invoice). Now is a great time to stock up on baby gifts and Christmas gifts. Everyone loves a SOFT baby blanket and ever new mom wants to wrap her baby in luxury (especially if it soothes and relaxes them).
Thank you, Liz, for making beautiful baby blankets to help us spoil our little angels!
Have fun crafting, moms!
