The Hansen (handsome) Kids

The Hansen Family look like they should be in an advertisement for Disneyland. It's amazing that a group this size could get by without producing at least one 'ugly duckling'- I mean, there's always one, right? What is even more amazing is that they are incredibly NICE. That word is a big compliment in my book. Amber (a mother of 4, if you can believe it) dolled up her babies in "kellybowbelly" gear for church. Thanks for the picture!

Christmas Kids

Happy Holidays Everyone!
I didn't get a chance to post these in my shop this year. My dear mother-in-law gets all her grand babies new outfits at Christmas and has their pictures taken. This year, she picked out fabric and had me make skirts. These kiddos looked SO CUTE! The hard part is getting everyone to hold still at the same time!

These 3 are my babies. Left to right are: Libby June (5), Charlie Chambers(2), and Camille Rose(4 on Jan 25Th). These kids are my inspiration. When I was 5, my mom started teaching me to sew. I never thought I would really use it as an adult. But when I got married, we were POOR and I got creative. I began sewing things out of old clothes and clearance fabrics. Everything Mom ever taught about sewing came back to me. Now, I can sew things that I can't find. I get to create the things I imagine and I owe it all to my mom and my sweet babies!
