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.

Tutorial coming soon!

I have a great Christmas present pillow tutorial coming soon. I've been having some trouble installing Flashplayer on my computer which has been affecting all kinds of things including posting pictures on my blog. It's been a real bummer. I wish I could be better at computer stuff! I have stockings to post as well but until I figure out this problem, it will still be a while. I have to apologize to my follower friends because I have been absent for too long, not doing what I said I'd be doing. I've had to focus on two very important things, some health issues and completing my IBCLC education, that have really prevented me from being a good blogger. I am working on getting back on it and doing better than before. I hope you all are understanding and if you have any input, feel free to share! : ) I have SO many great ideas, most will happen after the holidays but I will be posting the tutorial soon, and hopefully a giveaway or two because my great followers need something great!


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.
