Feeling Inspired!

There are two very important dates coming up around here. Very, very important. Just ask my soon-to-be seven year old. Indeed. It's birthday week!

My older daughter will be seven on Friday and my younger daughter will be one only five days later! So we will be par-t-ying, let me tell you!

And, in true crazy-mama fashion, I've been staying up late and getting up early to finish those handmade gifts that didn't get completed at Christmas so they could become birthday gifts. Which is why this week I'm inspired by handmade softies.

Here are just a few of the many, many lovelies I've found around the web:
Bear by Hillary Lang {pattern in the Wee Wonderfuls book}
Lion by Stephanie Congdon Barnes
Ms. Fox by Manomine
Found on Softie Making
Pretend Bear Doll from Inside a Black Apple
Cute stuff, huh?

Well, there are lots and lots of really lovely new patterns to add to the shop and I'm hoping to get to them soon, but if I don't, just know it's because of all the partying over here!

Happy Wednesday!
