Welcome to Tulips and Turnips - Handmade for Baby!
The place of my creative journey. Most of my posts,
at least so far, have been about the processes involved
in starting a new business on my own.
My hopes are to have a few tutorials each month,
a giveaway each month, and previews of new items
and ideas, and various ramblings by me. Please feel
free to comment, share ideas, be a critic, etc.
Thank you for visiting and please check out my

Most days I start the day with some sort of goals regarding what I could get done today... I think it's good to do this but be loosely attached to it because in reality it never happens. I've learned I especially shouldn't try to make a list of things I want to get done during nap time because there seems to be some strange thing about that, I've talked to many Mom's who say the same thing... never make a nap time list because it won't get done! It's like the babies know somehow and will not let you finish it. ; ) But really, I've learned I need to not take things so seriously and just do what I can, my babies are very good boys and are quite patient and play very well on their own while I work on things. But, It can be frustrating stopping a project when I've just started on it. Today I'm going to start again after my injury, and I'm hoping to be able to put some new pictures up too.

About Me

My photo
My name is Shawn and I am a stay at home Mom of two boys and also a student. After many years of school and a Master's degree in Psychology, I decided to go back to school for Lactation Consulting. I spend most of my time with my children, and working on my sewing projects. Currently the sewing projects have to due with my little side business of making things for babies, which will be the main focus of this blog. I also love spending time with my husband but I see him very little now because he is busy with work and paramedic training. We have been together ten years now and married five! I love making things for special people in my life, I feel like it's something I can do to stay connected and maybe they will think of me when they see the blanket, pillow, curtain, or whatever else I have made. Since I am a somewhat introverted kind of person sewing seems to fit me, it's a way to express myself creatively, and put love into each piece, for each person. My life is quite challenging at times but I make sure to think about things I am grateful for each day.
