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

What to do about nothing?

I know I haven't blogged in a while, I've been so busy trying to catch up with things in our [family] life. My list has gotten too long and needs to go away, so I've been trying for that. A few of the bigger things going on are trying to sell my car and buy a new one and contemplating moving to Napa, and the preparation involved in planning and organizing for a move like that. I have to be prepared for it, if it does happen, and it's looking more like it will.
I have a new tutorial coming in the next day or so, and a few new projects to post pictures of that will soon end up on Etsy. I've bought some great new fabric recently and found a great place to buy it online since some of my favorite fabric I can't seem to find locally.


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.
