I am ready to jump into business with my sis – she even changed her Etsy store name so she’s ready for me to jump in as well! Anyway, we are going to be offering cake toppers similar to what I made for Matthew. We have not found anything quite like it on Etsy and we’re getting lots of feedback that it’s a great thing to offer.
So – what this means is that we need samples to list. This is where you all come in. I’ve already reached out to a few of you who I know have birthdays coming up, and I was about to reach out to one more when I thought, why not just post it?! So here’s the offer – I need sample work and would LOVE to create toppers for real babies versus just making them up! So please let me know if you’d like one (FREE, of course!!!) and I will get it started. I will need to know your color scheme/idea and theme. If you don’t like what I make for you, you most certainly don’t have to use it. HA!
These are 100% custom – I will design around what you’re doing for your party. I am doing one right now where there is no particular theme but a color scheme – and that’s great!
You can either email me, or comment below. It’s up to you! I will do up to 10 free toppers (and maybe more – we’ll see!) so please let me know ASAP! Two are already gone!
Here’s a tidbit of news on the sleeping/nap front. This kid gets it! Holy hell – we are now putting him down WIDE awake and he doesn’t get upset. The other night at bedtime, he couldn’t get comfortable so he crawled around, stood up, babbled, etc. all without crying for us. He finally fell asleep totally on his own. Today for his nap, I put him in his crib with his Boo (monkey), lovey, and a soft book and he played for 10 minutes and then laid down to sleep. ON HIS OWN! Now, I know this may be normal to many of you – but this is amazing for us! I am so happy! So very, VERY happy!!!!! The best part? His naps are now running from 1.25 – 2.5 hours EACH!!!!! I can’t remember the last time (besides vacation or a cat nap in the car) when he slept for less than an hour.
We played outside today for a few minutes. It’s warm, but windy, so we only stayed out for about 15 minutes. You all know I can’t help but photograph Matthew out in the yard no matter what kind of mood he’s in! I love being outside, and so does he! Today, he was introduced to the rocks around the foundation of the house. Good times!
