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?

Blessings in Disguise?

25 Oct

Baby T does not have the go-with-the-flow attitude of her daddy, nor is she the calm angel baby that my mother swears I was.  After several days of tears, both from her and me, I made a doctor’s appointment to find out why I’m not experiencing any sort of sleepy stage that several of my mommy friends talk about when discussing their newborns.  I’m experiencing a baby that could put any cheerleader to shame with her powerful lungs.  I’m experiencing a baby that would eat 24/7 if I allowed it to happen.  And I’m experiencing some pretty severe sleep deprivation.  So to the doctor we went.  To my surprise my daughter is in the 75% for her weight, and 95% for her height!  After an hour with the doctor, analyzing all kinds of Baby T’s behaviors specifically a cry that would suggest pain, which is only consoled through her love of nonstop nursing, and her pretend sleep tricks. we were told the only problem is that I’m a milk machine, and she loves to eat.  The prescription: gas drops, and the suggestion to pump so that B could help with the baby.  I don’t feel like that is in anyway helpful, but we are switching from Gripe Water to Mylicon drops tonight and praying that things change.  In the mean time my daughter is a fantastic model, and I’m so glad I was knitting crazy hats for her instead of nesting during my pregnancy.

We’re Sponsoring a Giveaway!

21 Oct

The Crafty Side of Sarcasm recently sent me a gift card to a craft store as part of a Pay it Forward project.  We decided to continue paying it forward by sponsoring a giveaway over at The Little Willow Tree’s blog.

One of our biggest goals at BraggAbout Creations has always been to share our art in order to raise awareness and funds for causes we care about.  We are so excited for the very first cause that we sponsor to be about breastfeeding and breast cancer awareness, especially since we just started our breastfeeding journey with our sweet little one. 

We will be giving away our newest creation “The Breast Hat Ever” as well as donating 25% of the sales from the hat to cancer research.  Purchases can of be customized to various skin colors and sizes.  Head on over to The Little Willow Tree for more details on how to enter for your chance to win a BraggAbout Creation!

Nothing like procrastination…

As I sit here timing contractions, I would like to point out that I have FINALLY finished Baby T’s coming home hat.  I even took some pictures and have posted it up on Etsy.  I can’t wait til I have a model to be showing off all of these fancy hats!  By the way this one is drool worthy.  It is made out of baby alpaca and a merino wool blend.  I always imagine what my knits will be generations from now, I’m hoping this one will be relevant in the far far future of the Bragg family.
