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

Exciting news about Tulips and Turnips!

So, a while back, probably lost in my archives, is a post about something exciting I was going to announce as soon as it happened and a lot of time passed since. I had no idea how complicated it was or how expensive. BUT, I am very happy to announce I hired an excellent trademark attorney to assist me with the process of trademarking my name Tulips and Turnips and my products, and as of just a few days ago, it has officially been submitted! Yeah!!
I'm starting to feel better from my surgery last week so I'll be slowly getting back into things, I have a very large special order to fill that will take me the next few weeks to complete, but after that I'll be getting back to my usual work. My next giveaway will be really cool and I'm interested in having another guest blogger to have a swap with, if anyone is interested?


  1. Just saw this; thanks for the mention. :) I hope you're feeling on the up and up by now...

  2. Thanks Annie! Man, I've been WAY TOO BUSY! I'm really trying to slow down now and hopefully have a very nice renewed next year! How are you and the family? Have you done the big move yet?



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.
