Let's start talking about Christmas

I walked into our local Kohl's today to discover that they have put out their Christmas merchandise. I wasn't really ready for that. Now I know that most of my Christmas merchandise arrived over the last two months but I still wasn't ready to see it in the store. We haven't even made it to Halloween. Well, this started me thinking. Maybe it is time to start showcasing some of our Christmas merchandise. Here goes:
These cute Santa Snugglers would be a great idea for any child this Christmas. There is also a reindeer snuggler. These cute snugglers can be personalized with a name at no additional charge. They are super soft and easy to hug.
Also by the same company, the reindeer belly blanket. This blanket comes in a Santa version as well. This super soft belly blanket is perfect for baby to spend time on their belly. This blanket can be personalized with baby's name for an extra special Christmas keepsake. We also have a large variety of Christmas stockings. These cute gingham stockings some with a Santa or Snowman applique. The stocking can be personalized with a name in the white cuff area. Our final spotlight for today is the super cute Baby Gund Santa Coat. Wrap baby in warmth in this Santa coat or the Snowman coat (not pictured). What a cute way to keep baby warm. Well, I think that is all for today. Take a look at all the Christmas items on our website. Shop early because some popular items will sell out.

Behind the Glass by HeartStrings

We are so excited to be offering to our customers HeartStrings Behind the Glass Pendants. These pretty necklaces have an added benefit. Twenty-five percent of the profits from this necklace are sent to Helping Honduras Kids' Orphanage. These are some beautiful necklaces. There are 23 different backgrounds, three fonts, four sizes, and three different casing colors. You can choose to have a monogram or a single initial to personalize the necklace. You can also choose to purchase a chain in one of four different lengths. These necklaces would make great Christmas gifts.

Mary Meyer Blankets and Wubbanubs

We have so much new merchandise that needs to be added to the website. We are working hard to get everything up. For today, we have added some new items from Mary Meyer. We have some super cute new wubbanubs. In case you haven't seen them, wubbanubs are amazing. These cute stuffed animals are 6 inches and have a Soothee pacifier attached. Both of my nephews love their wubbanubs. They are easy for babies to hold on to since the animal is attached. For very young infants, t
he animal helps keep the pacifier near the baby because of the weight of the stuffed animal.

These are so cute and so well-designed. Everyone should try this great pacifier. But beware, you will want more than one if your child falls in love with a particular one.
Also from Mary Meyer, we have matching "lovie" blankets. These cute blankets are 17 inches square

and feature satin trim on the edge. They come with such cute animals in the center. The designs are refreshing and cute. The blankets can be personalized with baby's name for an extra-special keepsake.
Things are busy here with school starting this next week. We also have Christmas merchandise arriving every few days. We are always looking for new and different items and we have an amazing one coming up. You will have to check back to find out what it is. I am going back to working updating the website. More news to follow.

Today's favorite baby personalized baby gift

It seems as each day passes, that there are phases we seem to cycle through. Every so often there seems to be run of a certain gift that is selling best. We have recently added some great new baby blankets that are a perfect size for that special "lovie" blanket or a burp cloth. These blankets measure 16 inches by 16 inches and are made of the softest terry velour I have ever felt. Each one features an accent border ribbon that fits perfectly with the main blanket color. They look amazing monogrammed in the ribbon accent color. I have made several of these today. The chocolate and orange or cadet blue and grassy green look so cute for boys. Also, really cute for today, was the hot pink blanket with the black and white zebra trim. Each of these turned out so cute. I would have a hard time choosing my favorite.
Last night was a restless night here in North Alabama. We had storms all through the night and woke this morning to so many downed trees. Many people in our area (about 30,000 was the last count I heard) were without power during the night. Thanks to our great local power company, most of those people have power restored tonight. So tonight I am thinking about all those people out there who once again are trying to clean up trees and damage after stormy weather. We had lots of trash and small limbs in our yard but nothing major. Looking forward to tomorrow and what will be the favorite baby gift of the day!

Way Too Long

It has been way too long since I have posted to this blog. I am going to make an effort to post at least weekly starting today! We are working our way back around to the busy Christmas season. Believe it or not, we are already receiving our Christmas merchandise and it is 100 degrees outside here. We have been so busy I am not even sure where to start today. It has been a great summer relaxing with my family but staying busy with orders. Our most popular item this time of year is the towel wrap. We now have several varieties. The new colored wraps are so amazingly soft and come in four different sizes. As you may know, I am a mom to two boys, 13 (almost 14 in September) and 20. It has been so much fun to have my 20 year old home from college for the summer. He and his brother have so much fun together. I really can't believe my boys are this old now. It seems like only yesterday they were babies. One reason I love my embroidery business is that it allows me to arrange my schedule around their activities. Even now that they are older, there are things that I really don't want to miss.
Here in Alabama it is almost time for school to start back and I am not ready. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against school but I have really enjoyed our relaxing summer. School presents a time of much stricter schedules and bedtime routines. Things have to be much more organized to fit it all in the day. I am starting to work on my schedule so that I can fit some new adventures that I added this summer to my busy school schedule. One thing I added is an exercise routine. I broke down and bought a very nice treadmill and invested in a few exercise videos. Now that the boys are older, we turned an area that they used as a playroom into an exercise area. I am about two weeks into working out with a video for 20 minutes and then trying to walk/jog 1 to 2 miles each day. I hope to get worked up to 3 miles a day. I am determined to make sure there is time in my day for exercise. As I get older, I recognize the need to stay in shape (which is getting more difficult).
Today's blog is a little more about life and not as much about embroidery but I hope to blend both and post more often. If there are any embroidery topics out there you would like to see me discuss, please let me know. I love, love, love being able to add personalized embroidery to gifts for special people out there. It is such a joy to hear from some of those people and how much they enjoy their items.

Personalized Gifts for Christmas

It is still really warm here in Northern Alabama. They say we may have storms on Sunday that will bring in some cooler weather. It is so hard to think about Christmas shopping when it is this warm. Both of my boys have promised to start making a Christmas list for me. They are older now (19 and 13) and it seems to get harder and more expensive to shop for them each year. I would love to say that I am an early shopper but normally I am running around at the last minute trying to finish up. My ideal Christmas shopping involves sitting in my comfy chair and shopping online. How about you?
We have some fun Christmas gifts in stock at MyEmbroideredGifts. We have the cutest plush mailbox from Baby Gund. The Been Good for Goodness Sake Letter Box is a cute corduroy mailbox that will make a great family keepsake. It measures 5in H x 6.5in W x 4in L. The corduroy mailbox opens and closes with touch and close fastener. Inside the mailbox is a red felt envelope and 20 pre-written letters to Santa. Year after year, your children can use this mailbox to deliver their letters to Santa. We have a super sweet My First Antlers Reindeer that would be a great plush gift for any child's first Christmas. We are thrilled to be carrying several new items from Lipstick Shades. The super cute melamine personalized plates would make a great gift for any season. There are some Christmas themed gifts and some for any time of year. We also carry personalized aluminum water bottles. Well, there are some great SEC football games going on so I think I will go check the scores. Have a great last week of October!
