I am very excited about my latest print! Here on the coast of Oregon it is beginning to warm up and the first signs of spring have appeared. There are birds chirping and tiny flowers opening up, searching for the sun. I just think this little flower is gorgeous and a great sign of hope and new life. You can find it in my shop here: First Bloom of Spring.

Too many mom's have the same complaint...New born sized diapers and clothing only fits for a couple of weeks! Unless baby is a Preemie, or on the small side, most will be in their "3 month" size items before the are one month old! A customer recently asked me if I would be willing to make her some diapers and covers, that would fit "A long time"....ok, I thought, I'll give it whirl! Here's what I made for her, and will take customs on!! (Note that each diaper/cover has the same dimensions as the other; but one of each is snapped down to fit an itty bitty newborn...and can adjust to fit up to an almost 20 pound Baby!) The use of professionally applied poly-resin snaps make a custom fit a BREEZE!
Give one to a child, and let them will show you. One of our favourite moments is when we give a playsilk to a child who has never played with one before. Their eyes light up and the wheels start turning and within moments they are deep in play. Fabulous for play therapy and kids with disabilities, too.

While I like to experiment with a variety of crafts, photography has always been one of my first artistic loves (the other is writing). I especially enjoy landscape photography and I think the beauty I see in the natural world inspires me to fill my home with natural handmade items. I also love viewing ordinary objects from different angles and perspectives in my black and white photography. I hope sharing my images will bring a little beauty into the lives of each person that views them.
Please check out my shop and feel free to stop by my personal blog, aurelia ann, as well.

The first is an upcycled toys category. In this category I will be adding toys that are made from recycled materials. So far I have added this Waldorf inspired baby doll whose hat and clothing are made from a reclaimed, felted sweater.
