A Day at the Beach

10 Oct

We drove down to Newport Beach tonight to take a walk and watch the sunset. It was a perfect California evening.

Announcing DNile Design

4 Oct

Finally! I’ve been toying with the idea of setting up an Etsy shop for ages now but never had the time or the focus. Suddenly all that has changed. Finn started preschool recently and the twins have realized that they have the run of the house from the playroom to Finn’s room two mornings a week so they pretty much disappear. I finally have time on my hands, something I haven’t had in a very long time. Our house has a fantastic and large playroom that doubles as my sewing room, so I can get work done while the kids play behind me. I’ve been finishing so many projects recently that I thought “hey, I can actually do this now.”

So announcing… DNile Design! I’m putting my sewing hobby to use making custom crib bedding and personalized quilts using fun modern designer fabrics. These are for the hip mama who isn’t into traditional boring baby decor. I’ll be working with customers to pick the right colors and fabrics and make a nursery set that they’ll love. Please spread the word, I’ll need all the help promoting my shop that I can get, especially in these early days. You can visit my shop here: Below are some shots of a sample I made for Lucy in luscious autumn prints. There are a few grandkid photos as well to placate the grandmas.

Tell your friends! I’ll also be putting up gift certificates for custom bedding and quilts as well- great for shower gifts.  AND if you use the coupon code STATEOFDNILE, you’ll recieve 10% off!
