cooing and collating

Well I’m finally Aunt Hillary! Thanks Katie for the 8lb 8oz bundle of squirmy cute pink cheek baby! Oscar is very pleased Maggie is here. Last night when we were over there visiting Maggie was crying in the other room while getting her diaper changed and Oscar jumped up and said "I’ll go check on her." gah! I have a feeling things are about to get overwhelmingly cute around here. I’ll try to keep my gushing to a minimum. Plus I don’t think my sister is too keen on me plastering my new niece all over the blog. poo.

In other recent arrival news…the embroidery girls postcards are in and again… gah! they’re cute! We couldn’t be more pleased with how they turned out. I’m so excited about these. I’ve been collating all night and they’re ready to go. They’ll be on sale tomorrow, Wednesday at 12pm Chicago time. Here they are, the Stitchettes!

included are 4 postcards, instructions and iron on transfer sheet

the thank you card

new stickers I made to go on the packages

So that’s what that’s all about. Sale tomorrow, extremely limited edition and then we’re not printing more of these up. It’s on to Fall. Which at "feels like 102" is sounding really good right now.

Piece out.

  1. Congratulations on your new niece! Much adorableness with the cousins is sure to ensue… good times. Those embroidery postcards are great. I’m gearing up for a morning of hitting my “refresh” button… thanks so much for offering so many cute projects for us to make!

  2. Love them! I hope I get in on the action…

  3. Congratulations on Miss Maggie! Cousins are pretty fun together! It’s so sweet when “big” kids get so excited to help with babies. I hope I’m lucky enough to get in on the adorable postcards and transfers tomorrow – I’m setting up a reminder right now!! Love the new stickers!

  4. I’ve put it in my calendar, miss. My first dolls are nearly complete.
    May I suggest a trip out to Seattle for some 70-degree, feels like 65, weather? I’m not trying to make you jealous, just trying to encourage travel. Travel travel travel.

  5. Congratulations! I can’t wait for tomorrow!

  6. Congrats on the wonderful niece, many years! The postcards are great! I hope to get in on the action as well. Will they be $10 like the put together book? with $2 for shipping. (Sorry to be a wet blanket and ask the price when they are obviously priceless!)
    feels like 108 here in Traverse City Michigan. (The other end of Lake Michigan!)

  7. Congratulations! Aunthood is SUCH a great thing. I love being an Aunt ALMOST as much as I love being a mother – more, acually, some days. No, Just Kidding!
    And oh, my god I know where I’ll be at noon tomorrow. I just hope I get some of those adorable girls.

  8. Congrats on the new neice! How lovely. And on your new project – iron-on transfers? I’m so impressed.

  9. haha your stickers are hilariously awesome!

  10. Your stickers are adorable! I love all your work! 🙂

  11. Only recently found your blog – love it love it love it! So many ideas, too little time. Thanks.

  12. So cute! I’m ready to hit “refresh” tomorrow! Are there instructions for the embroidery stitch that you use? I just started a bit of embroidery work this summer (you’re right – it’s perfect for the pool while the kids run around) and it’s clear that I have no idea what I’m doing!

  13. Welcome to the world little Miss Maggie! Hillary- these turned out so great!!

  14. welcome baby maggie, we cant wait to see aunt hillary indulge in her cute baby girl crafts!!
    those stickers are dork-tastic!

  15. Wonderful! Congratulations. I think Baby Maggie is lucky to have you as an Auntie.

  16. I’m so in line for one of these books!

  17. yeah for babies and yeah for stitchettes!

  18. Congratulations on the safe arrival of your niece. Being an aunt for the first time is the best, and seeing cousins together is so cute!

  19. so cute! may I ask where you had the transfers printed? I’ve been searching for a place that will do that. 🙂

  20. Adorable stuff! Hopefully I’ll be lucky enough to get a set :o)
    Congrats on becoming an aunt!

  21. Congratulations on becoming an auntie. That’s fabulous news. I love the postcards and the stickers. What printer do you work through?

  22. shut up!!! the stickers!! ack!

  23. Gush away! Bring on the cute stories! It is such a wonderful time I am sure no one will be grudge a good old happy story!

  24. “I zig AND zag.” Those stickers are the best Hillary.

  25. I hope I can get in the front of the line for those postcards and iron on transfers! What kind of arm twisting would it take to get a sheet of those stickers next time?! 🙂

  26. Ok – i am going to have to come home while my babysitter is here so i can get those cuties! hope i’m lucky!

  27. eeee! yay for babies! and yay for stitchettes!

  28. Congrats on becoming an Auntie! I can’t wait to be called Auntie, but I’m afraid my brother–and only sibling–is still a ways off from that. Not even a wife in sight! Boo-hoo.
    12:00 Chicago time is about 9:00 am pacific time?? I hope I can get in on this one 🙂

  29. What an excitment filled post! A new baby and new embroidery patterns. I have been swooning over the stitchettes since I saw your dolls. Too cute and just in time for me to stitch them for my baby girl’s room. She’s due in October! Must mark the calendar…

  30. I can’t wait! Ever since I saw your embroidery work, I realized there was a hole in my life that could only be filled by darling little embroidered children.

  31. cute, cute, cute!

  32. Yay on the new niece and yay on the stichettes!

  33. I can’t wait! I hope that it’s a decent time in Singapore!

  34. Everything looks wonderful (ahem, wee wonderful!) And congrats on aunthood!

  35. oh man, “piece out” is my favorite.

  36. Tomorrow NOON
    Can’t wait !
    I will be there !

  37. Congratulations on being an Aunt and on the supercute patterns. So much pressure for noon tomorrow! I guess it will take my mind off the intense heat. We’re just down the road in Forest Park and man, it’s hot here.

  38. congratulations! Its so nice to hear your sweet news! Its great to know other people get caught up in the kid-to-kid cuteness around them, too. My daughter is 7, and my son is 14 mos, and she has taken such an endearing air of responsibility for him since the moment she first held him– I could never have expected or asked for it, but it is so wonderful!. Its lovely to see kids who truly love eachother. The depth of a child’s love is amazing–much more patient and innocent than ours, no preconceived notions. Just pure and sweet and proud! Enjoy!

  39. yay!! i’m so happy for your family’s new arrival!!

  40. Congrats on the new addition! I just worked out that 12.00 in Chicago means 3am here in Queensland, Australia! does it sound really desperate if I set the alarm?? LOL!

  41. What an adorable post card – obviously the embroidery cards are darling – I have just loved your thank you and your stickers (and those with the cute little book I received)…any chance of every selling extras of those? “You Rock” is such a staple of my vocabulary!!

  44. Yay I got them ordered!

  45. Oh what a good idea! Good for you! You are always coming up with new little innovative things, congradulation on the new addition, and selling out, of this item in your store!

  46. congrats auntie!
