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
Etsy shop!

My New Website

My new website is coming soon, it's currently under construction. I'll soon be very happy to get rid of my Etsy shop because there are SO many shops and so many items on Etsy now that every items gets buried unless you're pretty much constantly "refreshing" it. My website will have all of the baby things I make and a custom order option. Everything else I make like the bags you see on here will still mostly be giveaway items from time to time. The website designer I have hired is great so far and I am excited about it, the one thing that's a bit frustrating is that I wish I could be more involved in the actual building of the site. I like to do things myself so it's hard to have access to it but not be able to do much because the whole HTML thing is such a foreign language to me. One thing I'd also like to do is to get some super great pictures for it and that is something I can do, BUT how to get my kids to sits still long enough... a whole other thing!

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.
