I made this custom and complimentary ribbon to wrap around the Sleepy Sock Monkey blanket. I sewed together four strips of the fabric that I used to create the nursery decor and bedding, including the selvage from one of the cotton prints which had the designer and fabric information on it. This custom ribbon created a beautiful way to secure the rolled blanket for gift giving, without having to spend money on paper gift wrap, as well as provided the recipient with a keepsake sample of her child's nursery colors, fabric, and theme.

This adorable felt pocket designed to nestle baby's first bible is the perfect shower gift to welcome a baby into a Christ-centered world. The felt design and pearl snap button make this a treasure to look at and to touch. Add babies name or special words to make this gift one that will be cherished for a lifetime.

Little Boy: "MOMMY, AREN'T YOU AFRAID YOU'LL RUN OUT OF LOVE?"
Mommy: "NO, BILLY. IT SEEMS THE MORE I LOVE THE MORE LOVE I'M GIVEN TO LOVE WITH."
This profound cartoon clipping was given to me by my mother before I had my second child.
