PeachHoneyPreemie is on a roll!!

PeachHoneyPreemie News!!
I've been on a fabric buying rampage, Amy Butler, Joel Dewberry, etc... I'm in desperate need of a 12 step program for shopaholics.  I told myself "You do not need anymore fabric," but then quickly changed my tune to "You do not need anymore fabric, but if you find a really cute pattern on sale, buy 5 yards."  This prompted a shopping spree on ETSY and my local fabric stores.  It's been a busy month at the sewing mill, and I have some seriously adorable fitted sheet and blanket sets for all my preemie families.  Are you excited?!?!




The preemie clothes are close... very very close.  I have just recently sent my drawings to a sample maker, who will hopefully, give me a good deal for production.  I ran into a little roadblock when picking fabric.  As it turns out most of the cute interlock knit fabric is copyrighted, so I was running into some major issues with the cohesiveness of the line.  So, I talked to some people, who have produced their own fabric, and guess what I found out?  It's extremely expensive!!  I didn't have $30,000 to start a fabric line, so the next best thing was screenprinting... genious!!  I have decided to make this line eco-friendly, so I'm using un-dyed natural fabric, and I found some water-based eco-loving screen print ink.  It's all coming together, and I can't believe this is my wonderful life.  I hope to have some exciting news next week and, some even bigger news in the beginning of summer.

Do you want to follow my preemie journey?  Then follow me on my preemie blog...

Other stuff...
My business cards came!!  Yay!! I only got a few for my upcoming Blog Conference in San Diego this month, but I'm already planning the change up with the next batch.  I'm thinking some pinky vintage texure, like my new banner.  Hmmmm...


It's amazing to me that things are actually happening.  I imagined this life for myself, and it's coming true.  It's unreal, and heartwarming, and I can't believe it's mine... this is my wonderful life.
