Hiya & Happy Monday!! Did you all have a good weekend? I did, it was pretty uneventful but I did get to Target & Michaels (yay)!! It also rained all weekend, which was a bummer so I'm hoping for some sun this week! I also managed to get 4 video tutorials done for you all and a bunch of projects completed so that makes me happy :O)
**And my video disclaimer is that "YES" I do have on cherry-print jammie pants in my videos, LOL!! Sunday was "pj day" here in our house, hee hee!**

Congratulations to you both! Please contact me so I can get you your goodies out this week-my email is in my sidebar!! I enjoyed reading everyone's comments and answers to my "nosy" questions so, so much--it was really enjoyable!! I love that most of your happiest birthday presents were so sweet & so close to the heart! Thank you again for stopping by & being a friend to me!
For my "stamping on fabric" project today I have a "New Baby Gift Bundle" for ya! I have to say that I am super-pleased with how this turned out, lol! I used all Paper Trey Ink products for this (palette inks, stamp sets & ribbons). PTI's Palette Inks come in so many beautiful colors and they are a permanent dye ink so they work wonderfully on fabric (takes hundreds of washings to get the dye to disappear). I bought packs of newborn baby onesies at Target--these are organic cotton by Gerber and the socks are cotton also.
Stamping on fabric w/ inks is very easy & you can customize so many things and make so many gifts this way. I used the following Paper Trey Ink sets on these onesies & socks--Tags for Spring, Wishing You, and Mega Mixed Messages. Palette ink colors used were--Hibiscus, Lavender Moon, Lemon Tart and Spring Moss.

A close-up view of the towel I stamped and colored with Copics--I just tied the top off with some of this fun gingham ribbon! I had picked up this set of (4) ceramic spreaders that matched my gingham ribbon perfectly. I just made a belly band to match the notecard and added a nice label to the front. You could add any sentiment to the front of this, but I chose this "thankyou hostess" sentiment from PTI's "Mega Mixed Messages".
