I created this sweet shirt for my sister, Brea.  I adore her.  She recently sold her a.m.a.z.i.n.g. children’s consignment sale to start a new journey in life.  She now works for an amazing Children’s Clothing Company, Matilda Jane Clothing.  She is a trunkkeeper and is ROCKIN’ it.  I wanted her to have a custom shirt to sport her first week of kick-off.  I saw a picture of her wearing it and it looked adorable!

So proud of you sister!  Love you!

The MOM to the 2nd power shirt and keyfob headed to Jennifer T. in TN.  I hope you love it Jennifer and sorry for the bad lighting of the picture.  Classic case of a quick pic just to ship! 

My sweet niece, Mary Elizabeth, turned 4 last Sunday.  She needed a custom shirt from Aunt Alie.  Mary is so fun, funky, and spunky.  I love her truly and couldn’t imagine Brea’s family without her in it.  She also happens to be my Maggie’s BF.  Maggie adores her.  period.  If you are around sweet Mary for longer than a minute, you will understand.  She is awesome with a capital A.  Love you Mary!  Happy Birthday Sweet Girl!

And last but not least…A sweet number 4 shirt for my own Maggie Moo.  She LOVES blue.  Period.  If anything in her drawers is clean and it is blue, that is what she wears.  She colors in blue.  She wants a blue cup.  She eats on blue plates, with blue utensils, and loves blue balloons.  You get the idea.  I love this sweet shirt.  I still can’t believe my baby is 4.  Where has time gone?!

Sweet kitchen cup towels…O how they will make your kitchen super duper adorable.

These towels were ordered for gifts, to decorate a bathroom, and I even gave some away to some lovey’s in my life to welcome them to their new homes.  Love them. 

I do love me some lanyards.  They are crazy picky to create, but they are so fun.  The end result always makes me smile. 

These lanyards were created for some locals as well as some other customers in other states.  Super FUN and super colorful!  Thank you all for your orders of lanyards. 

They are a MUST have if you teach! 
Enjoy all the colorful goodness I worked on throughout the summer!

 I am a bit behind…Can you tell?  I am going to play catch up for a while.  It is mainly because this summer, I would create,

take a quick picture, then ship the items out…No time for blogging.  Hopefully it won’t take me too long to get back in the


Here are some super fun keyfobs…They went all over the USA!  So awesome!

I am so excited about the orders I have been working on lately.  While I struggle to find time to take good pictures (I apologize in advance…the pictures are rough!) before I package up my finished orders, I love seeing all the finished products come together.  Things have been going smoothly at the Harris Household.  I am exactly 2 weeks away from my C-Section date to deliver Mr. Baden and we are getting quite ready.  I have officially finished all of my current orders, so I am going to work on an item for my BF and then some items for Baden and Maggie Moo! 

Now for some recent orders.  The first order was placed by Krista S. in TN.  She is one of my favorite co-workers and I just adore her sweet spirit.  She ordered several things from me.  First up…a MOM to the 2nd power shirt and then sweet little Africa shirts with some adorable little boys’ initials in them.  Her brother and sis-in-law just returned from Ethopia with their twins Elijah and Isiah and Krista wanted them to have some special clothing pieces to sport at their meet-and-greet they held for family and friends.  I love how the MOM matched the little boys.  Such a great idea! 

I hope the shirts were a huge hit Krista!

Then Krista also ordered a sweet MOM to the 3rd power shirt for herself.  Her sweet children all have some custom Maggie Moo’s Mom items, so it was time for MOM to treat herself.  Thank you Krista for all your orders and support!

These super fun keyfobs headed all over the place!  MN to TN, they were all super cute and were fun to create!

Some went to one of my favorite customers in MN, Annie, while others were doorprize giveaways at my sister’s recent Children’s Consignment Sale.  Thank you ladies!

This next order set went to Sarah A. in TN.  Sarah has also been a great “customer” over the years and was one of the first girls to love my keyfobs!  She contacted me about creating a very special birthday present for her upcoming birthday girl daugther.  She wanted me to create a custom Bible cover for her. 

I have made a couple of these before.  I just sat down one day and drew up a pattern and it came to life.  I have one, my sweet niece has one, and a few others.  They are super tricky to make, but the outcome is beautiful.  Sarah’s little girl even picked out her own fabric so that was fun!

I love how the cover came out and I believe that the birthday girl loved it as well!

Sarah also ordered this adorable shirt for her youngest son, Lincoln.  He LOVES sports balls so when Sarah suggested something with sporting balls (mainly baseball) this idea came to life.  I love how the 5 baseballs create one stick of the “L” and the bat creates the other.  Super fun and super cute!  Totally original and I hope that Lincoln can sport it for a while to come.

Thank you so much for both of your orders Sarah!  I really appreciate your constant support of my craft!

Well, that about wraps it up for now.  I have more pics on my camera that I have finished, but this was a good start.  Thank you for all that constantly support this little craft of mine.  I love it.  I love everything about it.  I am so thankful that others do too.

Have a great Thursday!

It has been super busy around the Harris Home here lately.  I have been thinking a lot lately of updating this blog with not just sewing goodies, but more of my personal family life as well.  I am getting way behind on blogging on my other blog, so I am going to give this a whirl.  Sorry if it is too much information for you!  🙂

Baden is growing and doing well.  He is still measuring BIG so I am not sure what that will mean for my current April 28th C-Section date!  We shall see.  I am going to the dr. and ultrasound people every week, so they are all over it. 

{that is his profile with one of his hands at his mouth.  The other two dots above his head are his feet…how the boy is comfortable, I do not understand}

Maggie Moo is getting so big.  She loves to play with all of her toys and just enjoys being at home.  I love target, she loves home.  We differ to say the least.  She loves to just stay in PJ’s all day and watch some Sprout and chill.  I love her truly.  She got a haircut last Thursday and I adore her new style.  She is so funny when she gets her haircut.  She just sits very still and makes funny faces at herself the whole time (and at our awesome hairdresser, Nicki!).  She loves the shorter look because it means less blow dry time after bath. 


{Mrs. Nicki gave Maggie bunny ears with the clippies…She loved it}

{the after…notice Bunny was right there with her for the whole experience…I quite adore her and that silly bunny}

I have been crafting at my own rate.  This weekend I was able to accomplish quite a bit and it made me feel so good!

This keyfob headed to Amy S. in White House, TN.  I love the colors!  So springy!

The next two MOM shirts were ordered by Ann R. in Greenbrier, TN.  She ordered one for herself and one for her best friend.  I love that!  They both turned out so sweet!  Ann loved this dot fabric and they look super cute with the gray shirt behind them. 

Thank you so much Ann for your orders and support!  I look forward to creating more for you in the future!

More orders to come…Have a great Tuesday and Happy March!

In between some doctor’s appointments in Nashville recently, I had the opportunity to go visit my FAVORITE fabric store and RACKED up.  I mainly got some boy fabrics for a huge project I am planning for Baby Baden’s room, but I did manage to pick up some sweet fabrics for other projects as well.  Hope you like them!


{just a side note…these two fabrics above look amazing together!!}

Happy Friday!

Wow! That seems to be the only word that comes to mind when I think back over the past couple of months. Here is a quick update…

I am currently 6 months 3 weeks pregnant with our son-to-be, Baden David Harris. He is growing and doing great (trust me, I have a ton of ultrasounds to confirm that he is doing great!). I have returned to work and so far doing great.  I did have the chance to finish up some orders that I took forever ago that I am just in love with (pictures of those projects were uploaded Sunday – check them out below).

The most requested item that I have noticed since I have been away from my crafting table are the LANYARDS. It is like they have officially caught on. Seems like people are loving them and needing them in bulk. That wouldn’t be such an issue except they take about 2 hours each to create with love. With that being said, I am raising the price just slightly to $20.00 each plus $2.00 shipping for the lanyards. Totally worth the extra couple of bucks. I am going to try a new way of selling the lanyards this time though and only sell them as they are ready to ship.  I feel this will be better than getting way far behind.

I am planning on listing the “ready to ship” lanyards on my Facebook page only.  There will only be a limited number of them ready every month, so if your really wanting one, be sure you have “liked” my Maggie Moo’s Mom Facebook Page by clicking HERE

In the meantime, why not give one AWAY for FREE!  Yes, a free-ready-to-ship-to-the-lucky-winner lanyard!  All adorable with some fun Spring-like colors. 

Here are the details and how to comment {there are many ways to win}:

1.  Leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite Spring colors are. 
2.  Become a Facebook fan of Maggie Moo’s Mom by clicking HERE (leave one comment here to let me know your a fan).
3.  Subscribe to this blog by signing up your email address on the right-hand side (leave one comment that you did).

So plenty of fun ways to enter.  Giveaway will end on Thursday, Feb. 3rd at midnight and a winner will be announced Friday!  Good luck!

{And for those interested in placing an order with me, I am opening up 4 custom spots per month for any custom items (keyfobs, shirts, burp cloths, etc.).  I will also open up some custom lanyard spots as they are available and time allows.  Any questions or to place an order for an item, shoot me an email …  alihol@hotmail.com}

I started working on this huge order a while ago, but finished it up after we knew we were having a baby boy…and oooo it makes me SO EXCITED!

This order went to Robin R. that I work with.  Her little boy, Tate, has quite the collection of M3 originals.  His mom is in love with onesies and since he is on the go, why not make them look as cute as possible!  My favorite is hard to pick, but I would have to say the whale one!  My little man will have one of those for sure!

Thank you so much Robin for your orders!  I look forward to continue creating for Mr. Tate!
