Scarlett’s birth

My daughter, Scarlett, will be two in a few months, and I haven’t felt the urge to publish her birth story until now, although a slightly edited version did appear in our local NCT magazine shortly after the birth.  It might have something to do with my best friend’s baby being due any day, and making me reminisce.

New venture – Baby Brain!

Baby Brain

I’m very excited to tell you that I’ve just opened a shop on Facebook.  It’s initially selling prints of baby names and birth details, and will go onto sell babies’ and children’s clothing shortly.  If you remember the sewing hassle I had with the supergirl boots, worry not, Barry, being the lovely husband he is, is giving me the lovely gift of a sewing machine for my birthday at the end of next month, so no more trying to handcrank the machine and guide at the same time!  I did have a bit more success with the nursery chair reupholstering (with Charlie’s electric machine).

I’ve called it Baby Brain because that’s mostly what I have at the moment, and I’m sure other mums will appreciate the feeling!  I also have my baby on the brain most of the time, and making clothes and prints for her and other babies would make me happy.

So, if you have a spare minute to come and like my page, I’d very much appreciate it.  I’m hoping to run a competition soon for a free print, so watch this space.  Well, not this space here.  This space… www.facebook.com/BabyBrainBoutique.  See you on the other side!
