Burpies Galore!!!

So... I guess that the need to be crafty is in my genes. My Mom and Dad both took painting classes when I was little. They painted all kinds of scenes on canvas and were both really quite good. My mom also smocked and sewed dresses for my sister and I. My sister was an art major for awhile in college, and is extremely creative and artistic. I have always been the least talented artist in my family, by far.


I don't know if it is the fact that I am a mom now, but I feel this drive to be crafty. Maybe it is because my mom was so creative, and that is the main role model that I have for being a mother. Maybe it is watching a little too much Martha Stewart. Maybe it is the need to have a creative outlet. Whatever it is.... it has hit me hard!

When I had Clayton, I got all of these wonderful handmade burpies at my showers. I LOVED them! I thought that they were all so cute and loved the fact that someone made them just for me. Well... I am now at that age where ALL of my friends are having babies. Out of necessity (due to my limited budget and wanting to give them all something nice), I started making burpies myself. Wade says that I should try selling them. I am not so sure about that. I just love picking out all the fabric and ribbon and then sewing them together. I am hoping that "Santa" will bring me an embroidery machine so that I can start personalizing them (hint, hint, Honey :). Here are some of my baby burpies:
