I met Carly when her older sister was a student in my mom's first grade class. She actually has two sisters, and all three were totally adorable. When Carly came in with her new baby Hudson, I was blown away at how grown up she is now! In my head, all three sisters are still adorable little ones. Now they are having their own little ones! Carly was so trusting and let me try out all sorts of set ups with Hudson - who can resist a tiny newborn raccoon?!
I have to admit an obsession - newborn prop hoarding. Every time it seems like my studio is stuffed to the gills, I manage to find space for another perfect prop or just one more wrap or another quilt. Etsy is one place that I find amazing props - I recently contacted Holly, owner of Storyland Amis because she specializes in making darling amigurumi! She made me a whole collection, and I use them every chance I can get. Between my darling amis from Nicole at Mamas & Minis and Holly at Storyland Amis, I am in crochet cutie heaven! I thought this little fox from Holly made a perfect addition to Hudson's fall set up. Granted, Arizona fall is barely cool until the end of October, but the minute it drops below 90 degrees, I start to celebrate! Hudson was the perfect little fall baby. Not only that, but his aunt got him that perfect milestone blanket too! I found it at BATZ Kids Etsy shop if you want one of your own! Ok, enough shopping talk! I can't wait to see Hudson and his mama in my studio again and again as he grows up!
