All sorts of new stuff!

Introducing Boogie Bear Designs! In keeping with a New Year (I know, I'm a bit behind), I've decided to move all of my baby product line to its own site/blog, as well as come up with a new name for it.

Named after my first son (his nickname), Boogie Bear is currently focusing on designer burp cloths and baby blankets and quilts. I am currently working on several new products, and hope to introduce them by the Summer!

More burp cloth pics

Because I do have (a few) more pics, and want to make sure I have them up, here's a few more. Please forgive the awful photography, as I was using our kitchen table, and we have horrible lighting in this house. I hope to get more pictures up in the coming days:

Some recent projects

I've been working on lots more burp cloths lately, and here are pictures of some of the completed versions. I've made SO many more than this, but every time I make some, I forget to take pictures! Gasp! I'll be taking more of the ones I'm currently making, as well as some fabric samples today. So I'll post those as soon as I get them uploaded . In the meantime, here are a few that I have (excuse the bad lighting, Italian homes aren't the greatest for natural light).

Because I'm addicted ...

Okay, so when my husband finds fifty thousand dollars on our credit cards, spent at The ScrapBox website, he can't blame me. His only option is to find Kelsey from Vanilla Joy, and hold her responsible!

Browsing through their website, looking for the item I want when I win Kelsey's contest, I found this little goodie:

Now isn't that the greatest idea?!? I'm always trying to figure out where to put my ice water when I'm crafting, and that's just the cutest idea! Just yesterday, I ended up spilling an entire (40 oz) cup of ice water all over my husband's freshly washed cammies because I put my cup on the less-than-balanced ironing board. I thought it would be out of the way, but all I had to do was brush by, and then, oops!

At only $19.95, I may just get one of these doohickies even if I don't win. My sanity, and my husband's cammies, will be greatly served!

OMG! Isn't this amazing?!?

Over on Vanilla Joy, there is a contest to win this beautiful treasure! As I'm typing, drool is running down my chin. I would give several people's left legs to have one of these! The ideas that are already running through my head are enough to scare my husband into never letting me near a craft store again!

Anyway, head on over, and sign up for this contest. One lucky person will win the whole shebang! And there are other prizes too! Check it out!

I need to get better about this ...

It seems I've been multitasking a little too much lately, thinking that "divide and conquer" would be the best way to handle things. Apparently, that mean divide Janie and conquer nothing!

Anyway, I'm trying to consolidate several blogs, limit the things I do get involved in, minimize my projects (including just plain finishing some of them), and giving up those things that don't mesh with my life right now. In the meantime, please bear with me while I figure things out.

In addition to all this, I want to attempt to blog better. I've decided that one of the things I want to focus on is my baby gifts and crafting, so I want to use this blog for that.

Along those lines, I heard about a giveaway for a complete blog makeover that I am uber excited about! This blog could certainly use it, since I have all these great layout ideas, and lack the knowledge to actually put them into practice. Check out the details of the giveaway here. I believe you can also click on the button I added in the sidebar. Either way, I'll be keeping an eye open for an opportunity to use Jennisa's genius at some point in the future!
