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?

Getting the Hang of It

12 Nov

I’m finally getting the hang of handling Tiffany and completing the orders for BraggAbout Creations. I’ve learned that the quickest way to calm my screaming child is to take her outside.  A lot of knitting has taken place at the park and in our front yard this week.

The method is working, and TWO orders will be getting mailed out, and a third is almost complete. Currently there is a women’s slouchy hat on the needles.  I’m experimenting with texture and using both knitting and crochet for this one.  Fingers crossed it turns out well.

Hope everyone is having a great day!  I may be updating soon with a sneak peak from our Christmas photos =)

Getting Spooky

We’ve finally put the baby down long enough to add the BraggAbout Protection series to our Etsy Shop.  We are having entirely to much fun writing these descriptions.
