Celebrating New Life

Celebrating New Life

My sister, sister-in-law, and I recently had a baby shower for my younger sis. It's her first child and we are so excited about baby Patch! We had a lot of fun planning her shower. Every mommy deserves a fun time to celebrate the new life within her.

It took a lot of time and energy planning the baby celebration. Designing and mailing invitations, preparing food and games, wrapping gifts, buying and making decorations....all of these thing took time, energy, and cost. We wanted it all to be perfect! 

In comparison, how much more time and energy does Our Father take when creating us and our babies (knitting us together). Babies are all created beautifully by God. They are all a blessing. The most precious gift from God.

 Psalm 139:13-16
 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and
wonderfully made; your works are
wonderful, I know that full well. 
My frame was not hidden from you 
when I was made in the secret place, 
when I was woven together in the depths of the

Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days
ordained for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.


This was a joke since my sister is gluten free.

What a special gift to have something handmade with love to put on your newborn. Every mother should receive a handmade gift for her new baby. A store bought item is thoughtful as well, but nothing compares to the time and care it takes to make a baby gift.

When I had my first child, I was so worried about everything. I wasn't sure if I would be a good mom or if I could provide what my babies needed. I looked to this promise that matter how much we worry and fret about our babies, God tells us We are worth more than many  sparrows and will take care of them...and us. This verse gave me peace.

Prayers for you & your babies,

Easter Bunnies and Spring Newborn Babies

With Spring comes NEW LIFE! Babies, bunnies, flowers, and happy colors everywhere you look. The grass begins to grow, new leaves and flowers budding on the trees...Easter is a time when I think of how blessed I am as a mom and daughter of Christ. I am thankful for new opportunities and hope.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.(1 Peter 1:3 ESV)

2 Thessalonians 3:13 "And as for you brothers and sisters, never tire of doing what is right."
We talked about this verse in Children's church this past week. We sang the song - "I Am" by Dave Crowder. Holding on to God through storms and difficult times. "I Am" holding on to God's promises and God's teachings. Sometimes it is so hard to do the right thing, but God promises to bless us for obeying his word. I pray this for myself, my kids, as well as the kids I saw in church this week.

Harvest Fest 2015

Harvest Fest in Marietta Square (Marietta Ga) was great this year! Happy Baby Crochet partnered with Tiny Nose Little Toes and we both did well and were very busy. We had a lot of fun. A touch-a-truck event was being sponsored for the kids by the City of Marietta. There was a costume contest, in which my friend's son won for his amazing handmade transformers costume. Go Jacob! Overall it was a success and we are planning to do a spring show there as well! 

Here are some of my creations at the festival. 

I appreciate so much the support of my customers, reviews posted on etsy, and people who encourage me in this creative business. It is not easy sometimes to keep it up, but I love it and so thankful for my talents. It makes me so happy to crochet things for sweet & precious babies. They are God's most wonderful blessings!

Valentine's Day Crochet Heart Necklace

This is a repost from last year.
I love this little valentine's day necklace! 

This is a fun little craft I did with my 6 year old son. We made necklaces to use as gifts for Valentine's Day. I thought they were so cute, I had to post about how we created them!

Here are the items you will need for the project. I used some silk chiffon ribbon, but you may use bulky weight yarn or some other kind of ribbon. I will include the pattern for the crochet heart. 

To get started, you will need to make the crochet heart. If you do not crochet, you could use a felt heart, heart button, or another "heart" object. Joann's has lots of heart items that would work for this project. 

Pattern for crochet heart. (H hook, worsted weight yarn). *Light pink heart is 100% cotton yarn, hot pink heart is wool yarn.* I prefer cotton for this project. 

Start with a magic circle. Ch 3. Work the following into the circle - 4 tc, 2 dc, 1 tc. Now ch 1 and work the remaining into the circle - 2 dc, 4 tc. Chain 3 and slip stitch into your circle. Pull tight to close your circle and end off. 

Next, you will need to attach the bell to your crochet heart. This step is optional (my son saw jingle bells and insisted that we add one! :-).

Next, thread the craft beads on to the ribbon using the yarn needle. This is a great exercise for kids! My son used 2 red, 1 white, 2 red, 1 white, 2 red, 1 white, 2 red. (6 red and 3 white).

Thread ribbon through your crochet heart. Mommy probably needs to do this step. 

Now, finish up the other side by threading the remainder of the beads. Tie a bow using opposite ends of the ribbon and there you have it....a very cute heart necklace!

I love it!! Thanks for checking out my craft! 

Also wanted to share my some of my Valentine's day hats for babies. Happy Valentine's Day!!
