Gearing up for the Holidays

15 Nov

In Texas, it doesn’t get cold very often, but when it does I take full advantage and spend as much time as possible outside bundled in as many knits as I can.  This cold front meant that Tiffany got to wear her Breast Hat Ever for the first time!  We celebrated the cool weather by going to the park and a baby love class.  Everyone loved the idea of a giant boob on my baby’s head, I must admit it is by far my favorite thing that we have made thus far.  Can you even tell I am feeding her in this picture?

BraggAbout Creations is now accepting Etsy gift cards and credit cards just in time for the Christmas shopping that is about to begin. 

As I was filling out all of the forms to accept credit cards, I realized I need to add more hats for adults, I always sell them before I can get any decent photos!  I got to finish a piece this week for a local Austin artist.  I snapped a few photos on my mangled mannequin before I shipped it off.

I have always felt like it is such an honor when people who value one of a kind things ask us to create for them.  BAC always makes our creations a little bit different because you would shop at Target if you wanted something everyone else had.  I got creative freedom for this slouchy hat, and so I tested out some new techniques that have been running around in my head.  This hat features a mixture of crochet and knitting for a really great texture.  It is pretty spectacular in person.  I hope we get some photos of her in it.

We took Christmas photos on Monday by a photographer I have been wanting to shoot with for 2 years.  I won a shoot with her right before I had Tiffany, and she let us hold off until after Tiffany made her grand entrance.  My 5 week old was less than impressed that I wore a dress that did not grant her access to her food.  One hour away from the boobs and you think I was torturing her!  Daddy is working on taking more photos of us together, I find this picture HILARIOUS!  Don’t worry I fed her right after this.

Hope everyone else is loving the Holiday Season!  What are you doing to get ready?

Thankful Thursday: WE GOT FEATURED

12 Oct

I am so thankful to announce that BraggAbout Creations will be featured in the ZombShells 2013 Calendar scheduled to come out at the end of this month.  I’ll post a picture of me as a Zombie as soon as I get it.  I have the most AMAZING fiance that is able to make such cool stuff like crazy eye balls.  Which reminds me tomorrow I should probably add some of his clay work to the shop. 

By the way the shoot for this calendar was how we announced our pregnancy.  Can you believe I was 3 months pregnant in this photo?!  During the shoot B kept telling me to “suck the baby in.”  That was such a fun time being able to FINALLY say that we were pregnant after having two losses.  I am SO THANKFUL that our little bundle is here now.  I can’t stop staring at her.
