Good afternoon to everyone! I have created 2 new additions to the group of creatures to pick from for various products!! Inspired by our own little monkey and a few of her shirts, I decided to create some monkeys!! It seems that I see a lot of jungle themed nurseries and have noticed quite a few people that have had jungle themed baby showers and such so I thought I should add these guys!

 I think they turned out pretty good! I will get to work trying to make some invitations or a nursery greeting with them so that we can see what they look like on products!! Hope that everyone had a GREAT weekend! Mine has been good but is going entirely too fast! Even for hubby having a 3 day weekend it's going too fast! Anyway, off to hang out with the family and work on creating some products with these guys! Be sure to check back soon!!

T.G.I. umm well... at least Thursday is close to Friday right!?

Oh my, thank goodness the weekend is within sight!! You would think, nice weather being able to hang with my peanut outside and play all day what could be better and why on earth would I be so desperate for the weekend... this week would have been fine had I not gotten hit by some cold err flu or whatever the heck it is from I am not even kidding hell! Saturday afternoon both my mom and I started feeling kind of blah with sore throats and slight coughs, come Sunday and Monday all bets were off!! The sore throat and cough turned into body aches, a fever, feeling like I could pass out and included a nose that was both runny and stuffed up at the same time as well as the dang sore throat and cough that started it all! Now Thursday I am hopefully *KNOCK ON WOOD* starting to recover!! I seriously felt like death on Monday and I'm pretty sure I probably looked like it too!! There is no way this was a cold it had to be some sort of flu bug and I wouldn't wish it upon ANYONE!! I am just praying that our princess misses it! She has so far and so has my hubby so hopefully he continues to feel healthy and stays in the clear! Phew!! Anyway on to the stuff that this blog is about, lol not my health and complaining and trials and tribulations! 
I just finished 2 new birthday party invitations! The pink elephant ones could be made for any age, I just have 1 on there to start out with! That's the great thing about my products they can ALWAYS be personalized or customized just to you!! 
First up, the pink elephant birthday invitations. These are great for any little elephant enthusiast! Like I said when ordering you just have to tell me what age you would like on the invitation and it's as easy as that! They are 6 inches wide and 4 inches tall, they come with envelopes in sets of 10 for $9.00 plus tax and shipping

 I have more pictures of them on facebook and etsy for whatever the computer or perhaps this site has gotten a bug up its rear end and wants to load the other 2 pictures sideways and I don't know how to fix it... lol if anyone does please let me know!! Anyway I feel like I should also tell you these are just flat invitations like a postcard nothing on the other side and there is no inside obviously if I said they were like a post card there is no inside. Please don't think you are purchasing a folded invitation! I could make folded ones for you if that's what you'd like, don't hesitate in asking!!
Secondly, I decided to broaden my products slightly and made a birthday invitation for an older age. I made a diva sweet 16 invitation. These are 4 inches wide and 6 inches tall they too come with envelopes and come in a set of 10 for $9.00 plus tax and shipping

 Just like the other invitations these too are flat and don't have an inside or anything on the back.
I know I mentioned in posts past that I am attending my 2nd craft show on April 22nd. It's the Huge Spring Bazzar in Shakopee, MN so if you're in the area or the weather is nice and you're looking for something to do please stop by and check the show out!!
 With that being said, I am busily trying to crank out multiples of products and create new fresh products for the show so keep checking back to see what is new and going on with Mama Made! Between the craft show and trying to get a start on etsy I am constantly thinking of new things!!
Anyway I think that's enough for now happy Thursday to everyone and if I don't get back on here until after the weekend I hope you all have a GREAT weekend!! I think a little grilling is in store for this mama and family so long as the weather allows it!!

This party set comes with personalized invitations, thank-you cards, water bottle labels which can be personalized as well, cupcake toppers, and matching gift tags. Within 48 hours I will send you a proof of the items that have been personalized. Once you approve my proof, if you choose to print them off yourself, I will send you both jpeg files as well as the pdf file with as many of each item as I can fit on a page, completely ready so all you will have to do is push print! If you choose to have me print them and ship them to you, I will get to work on printing designated amounts of each item and ship them withing 48 hours after your approval.

Etsy Shop

Hello there!
Just wanted to make people aware that I have updated my etsy store and I plan on doing a better job of keeping products updated on it and trying to sell on there. This getting established as a little from home start up company is hard work and quite honestly complicated and a little frustrating hopefully it will be worth it though! 
My etsy store can be found at
However I have requested a url and shop name change to match all the rest of the mama made gift things so I will let you know when it changes! Also as you may have noticed at the top of the website now I have created a cute little trio of owls to be my new logo. They were just too cute I couldn't stand it!
Well I think it may be time to call it a night, until next time!!

Back From the Craft Show

Thank you cards sold in sets of 10 with envelopes all out and displayed!

Me looking busy, not sure if I was working on our 1 order for the day or if I was trying to get the internet to work! lol

Nursery and Child's Bedroom Signs out for Display
Well, today my mom and I went to a craft show like I said to promote Mama Made Gifts and get my little company's name out there. Good mother bonding time and got to see lots of neat products and meet some nice people unfortunately there wasn't nearly the crowd that we thought there might be in fact there wasn't much for shoppers at all! It wasn't just us thankfully though, the whole show seemed to suffer as a whole. It was still fun, I had a good time and it was a learning experience. In the meantime I will continue to try to sell my stuff on etsy and ebay and hope to find another show to go to in the near future that will have more customer potential.
Like I said, it was defenitely a learning experience, I had good comments from almost everyone that went by so that is encouraging! I will continue designing and producing so I have an inventory for our next adventure and any orders in between!!
Until then, everyone check back for more designs, new things and different updates!! Also check out my store on etsy!
