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.

Tulips and Turnips in 2012

At the beginning of the year, a month ago already, I had big plans to be posting more, having more give-aways, and more tutorials, and it just hasn't happened. Many things have kept me from this and I am trying to rush through some of them to get back to my blog and my extremely slowly growing business. I have been finishing my studies to become an IBCLC and currently work with the Nursing Mother's Counsel here in Santa Cruz, Ca. where we provide free breastfeeding support and breastfeeding classes. I have been very involved in my son's preschool too, and as my one year old is growing he is proving to be a very willful boy who needs more attention at this point. Thus I've been going to bed much earlier than I used to, basically cutting out the time I always had reserved for my blogging and sewing/crafting time. As I finish up some of the things that are very time consuming over the next month or two, I'm going to try to slowly get back into blogging! You will see more of me in the coming months : )

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.
