Dreaming of a White Christmas, and Book Update

It may not even be Thanksgiving yet, but I am feeling very ready for Christmas already! Last year, a back injury prevented me from attending both Thanksgiving and Christmas events, making the holidays a dreary time. This year, I am thankful for slow but steady healing and am ready to CELEBRATE with my sweet husband and our beautiful boy, who is dreaming of his own white Christmas.

BOOK UPDATE: Carried Away- A Collection of Wrapscapes and Nursery Rhymes is currently being printed! Woo hoo! Only a few short weeks until the copies arrive and will be ready to ship to you. I am in the process of setting up an order form on Weebly and will hopefully get it posted by next week. 

Happy babywearing!

Car Wash- with VIDEO!

Happy fall, babywearers! I've been busy working on the book and realized I'd forgotten to post quite a few wrapscapes on the blog, so it will be updated shortly. I had a few members of the Facebook group Babywearing 102 ask me to post a video of the creation process. Here it is!

Ho-Yun Dreams of Sushi

California roll anyone? I had an immense craving for sushi a few nights ago but all of the local joints were closed. What's a mama to do? Dream of sushi, and create a new scene for the little guy while he happily sleeps.

Little Bug's Birthday

I can't believe this sweet little boy of mine is one year old already! What a blessing it has been to see him learn and grow these past twelve months. 

Even though he has been walking for several months and is incredibly active, he is becoming easier to pose for our wrap scenes, and loves when I count to three to take his photo. What fun!

Thanks to my amazing friends, family, and fellow babywearers whom I have never met, the IndieGoGo campaign has reached 50%! With less than two weeks left, I would love if you would consider contributing or sharing in order to help make the dream of Carried Away a reality:

Many thanks!

The Wonderful World of Woven Wraps

I will never forget my entry into the wonderful world of woven wraps. As an artist, I was completely enamored with the many colors, patterns, and fabric blends available, and I quickly became an enthusiast. Before my son was even born, I had churned a Bjorn, Kelty, and Ergo and saved up my money for my very first woven wrap, Natibaby Kangaroos (which is never, ever leaving). 

My son entered the world on July 16, 2013, and, a few weeks later, I began wrapping him in what I liked to refer to as my "second womb". Soon I was itching for more wraps to cuddle him in. I joined the babywearing swap groups on Facebook and slowly built my collection by selling old things I didn't use anymore, marketing my artwork, and starting an Etsy shop where I sell wrap scrap goodies (links included below for anyone interested).

When my son was 3 months old I started to notice that my wrap collection was elemental. I saw earth, water, sky...and that's when my love of babywearing and my passion for art collided. I created my first wrap scene "stash shot" and now I am thoroughly hooked. Thanks for following along on my wrap art journey!
