My Talented Friends

(This was auto-posted, as I'm relaxing on the beach right now with my husband while my parents are watching both boys back at home!)

I have many talented friends. Three in particular are Stephanie, Diana, and Heather. Besides being wonderful mommies, gifted bloggers, and great friends, they are all extremely talented.

Stephanie has a business called Mango Tree Frames. She spends hours on each frame, and believe me, they are worth every penny. Just go to the website for proof.

Here is a picture of the frame she gave me when Benjamin was born. It is now hanging in his nursery:



Diana has a business called Appleby Mommy Bows. And even though my boys have no use for hair bows, she makes other things, too, like this cute pacifier clip that she made Benjamin:





Heather has an etsy store called Heatherty Featherty. She is a fantastic seamstress and can whip up an outfit for your toddler, a skirt for you, or a crayon roll for your diaper bag before you have even showered for the day. And her fabric is top-notch. Here are lots of pics from things she has graciously sent me:

Her card



The boys' tie shirts





Benjamin's VW campers bermuda shorts. (Please note that Heather did not specifically make these for Benjamin's round-bellied, short-legged frame. They simply did not fit her toddler so she sent them to me.) They are so cute!!







And my personal favorite of hers thus far: My stylish crayon roll.





So the next time you need a frame, a bow, or an outfit, remember my talented friends. Tell them I sent you. Maybe I'll get some more free stuff. :)

I seriously love my HeathertyFeatherty collection. Love it. Her fabrics are gorgeous, the sewing is solid and the detail is impeccable. At this point, Lily has 6 HF dresses and a pair of HF pants, and I have 2 HF skirts for me! Oh and the crayon roll is PERFECT for cartrips!!!
