It's almost that time of year again!  Fall is right around the corner.....time for carving pumpkins, sipping apple cider, watching football games, and curling up by a warm fire on cool autumn nights.  It's also the perfect time for Bella Baby to introduce a few new products that you are sure to love for Fall! 

Pumpkin Princess Tutu:  $18
(Will be making lots more in creme and brown)

This tutu and crochet beanie was specially made for Lylah's first Halloween.
Won't she be the cutest little scarecrow around!

(I am making more just like can get with or without the raffeta)
I am also in the process of making other Halloween tutus for a little ladybug, kitty cat, and witch.  I'd love to make anything you can come up with!  A bumble bee in black and yellow would be adorable too!

*  These are not near all of my products.  I can make anything you see here in almost any color.  I love getting requests for certain bows, tutus, bags, etc.  Just ask, and I'll do my best to make what you are looking for!

*  I have previous blogs before this sure and check them out.  They show other products that you might not have seen in this blog entry.

*I have 10 different colors of tutus (not including the special ones for Fall/Halloween), each with their own unique name to suit your special girl.  I can make them in any size, from newborn on up!  (They are featured in a previous blog entry as well.)

*Halloween will be here in no time, and a tutu is sure to be the perfect start to a homemade costume.  Some ideas for costumes in which a tutu would be adorable are a bumble bee, kitty cat, witch, lady bug, scarecrow, pumpkin, princess,
 or ballerina (of course!) 

*  I offer gift wrap if needed.  See previous blog for pictures and prices.

*  Football season is already here, and soon it will be time for basketball!  I will do plenty of toggles and bows in Cumberland Co. colors, but would also love to do any school colors.  Let me know if you are interested!

*  I am planning on having a booth at the Bluegrass Festival here in Burkesville on September 17-18.  I will have all of my products ready to take home!  Or you can come out and place an order if you don't see what you are looking for.

*You can find my products in two local businesses in Burkesville.  I have my braided headbands and a few bows at Mainstreet 210, owned by Freda Crawford and Robin Taylor (by Houchens).  You really should check their store out, even if you aren't interested in bows.  They have a wonderful variety of nice things for your home including dishes, picture frames, furniture, mirrors, etc.  They also have children's items, purses, jewelry, scarfs, and fabric.  I could go on and on! 

 I've also got lots of other Bella Baby products in It's All About Kids, owned by Margaret Riddle and Sherry Riddle (where Cut-Ups used to be, by the Dollar Store).  They open today, so go check out all of their adorable things!  They have things for girls and boys, baby to teen.  Besides my bows and headbands,
you can also find tutus and crochet beanies there.

In closing, I hope that everyone has had a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  The weather couldn't have been any prettier here in Burkesville, Kentucky!  There have been many special people on my mind this week, and I pray for their healing and well being.
  I love you Dad and Lydia.  I hope you both feel better very soon!

Before I leave you, I have to share a couple pictures of what makes me the happiest mommy ever...

Isabella, kissing her horse we bought at Mainstreet 210.  She loves to go there and "piddle" with her Mama.  She knew I couldn't pass up this cute rocking horse that sings and makes real horse sounds! 

She loves it so much!

~Stay tuned for more Bella Baby Fall and Halloween products coming soon~

~Introducing...Bella Baby Binky Clips!~'s been a busy couple of weeks.  Seems I've gotten behind on everything, including my blog.  I know you have been sitting on the edge of your seat, just waiting to see what's next!  haha    If you keep up with Bella Baby through Facebook, then none of this will be new to you, but I wanted to share with others what I've been working on. 
     My first new project, as you probably guessed from the title, is a pacifier clip.  After getting a request from a friend to do something for little boys, I researched different things that I could do, and found that these were right up my ally (meaning, no sewing required!)  I think they are so cute, for both baby boys and girls!  You can get them with a monogrammed clip, a bow at the top, and even Mam holder.  You will see in the picture below a few I've done already.  I'd be happy to make one using any color ribbon, bow, or monogrammed button you like.  You will also see that I have used two different types of clips.  Both hold well and have plastic teeth so that it won't damage your baby's clothing.

Bella Binky Clips for Girls:
($2 extra for Mam holder at top...not pictured)

And, finally something for baby boys!

Monogrammed Binky Clip
So cute!  Makes a perfect gift.

The pacifier stays in place between Velcro at the top.

     Next project....Bella Baby Preppy Ribbon Belt.  I only have a couple finished so far, but they turned out great!  I will be making lots more, once I get more printed ribbon and fasteners.  These would look cute in solid fabric as well.  Just tell me your color and size, and I'll make it for you!  Can't wait to make Katie's green and white panther paw belt!  Zebra print, leopard print, and all sorts of stripes coming soon!

Solid Belts:  $8
Printed Belts:  $10
Red and pink belt has 29 inch waist.  Brown and aqua belt has 32 inch waist.

     Well, that's it for new projects, but what I'd like to do now is show you everything that Bella Baby has to offer.  Business is picking up little by little every day, and I want to make sure that those of you who do not follow me on Facebook see what's available!  I also want to thank all of you that have purchased Bella Baby so far.  I love getting requests for bow boards, ribbon holders, pageant bows, braided headbands, bloomers, etc.!  I am having so much fun creating these things specifically for your special little person!  (Sorry for repeating information and pictures to those of you that have already seen this.) 

4 and 5 inch bows with crochet headbands to match
Headbands:  $3

AND on little girls with lots of curls!!!

      I'd like to end by saying a special thanks to Freda Crawford for hosting my fist Bella Baby Party last night.  Her daughter, Summer is now selling Premier Jewelry, so she invited me to bring out my Bella items to display along with Summer's jewelry.  It was lots of fun!  Thanks to all of you for your purchases. 

     Look for new items and colors for Fall soon!  Right now, you can purchase a few bows and headbands at Mainstreet 210 (next to Houchens in Burkesville) and at Styles Salon in Marrowbone.  Of course, you can always contact me if you are interested in placing an order or would like to come and see what I have in person.  I will probably do another "open house" very soon as well. 

     To conclude, I wanted to share are a few pictures from my 32nd birthday party. Thank you Liza for the beautiful cake, and for having all of us in your home.  It was a perfect evening of celebration with the best family an old woman could ask for! haha  
 Love you all.

Looks like Sweetheart Bakery made this cake, doesn't it!?
Nope, none other than Liza Turner herself.

Beautiful flowers from TJ and Isabella, and homemade bread and butter
pickles from Liza.  Look at that stitching...maybe she could give me lessons.  :)

Nonna and Aunt Granna showing Isabella some pictures of
her baby cousin Karson. 

And finally, the pride and joy of my life, helping me blow out a candle.
I have a feeling birthdays are just going to get better and better from here on out!
