Baby Creations Mosaic
Originally uploaded by lucky lisp

I don't know if this helps or hurts, but for awhile now I have been creating embroidered onesies for my friends and family who are having babies. I really enjoy coming up with new and clever designs to put on baby clothes, but lately I have been wondering if it might be better for me to switch to adult t-shirts and create non-baby related things. Or perhaps it is a little cathartic for me to surround myself with little baby reminders. Afterall, the world is not going to stop having babies just because I don't have one. I am going to have to be around babies for the rest of my life, and I might as well help them look cool and fabulous while I'm at it.

At this time, I have more finished onesies and onesie ideas than I have friends with little babies. So, I'm going to make a little business out of it if I can. I've started a store on ETSY, and, if I get my act together, I'm going to see if some local shops want to consign my work as well. Who knows, maybe I can take this and build a little empire. Either that, or when we do eventually have a baby, it will be the most well-dressed baby in all of Eugene.
