The place of my creative journey. Most of my posts,

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

Mom Entrepreneurs Vendor Faire and Giveaways

I don't know how many of you will be in the Northern California Wine Country area tomorrow BUT... Tomorrow Night The Merryvale Winery will be having our "Ladies Night Out Vendor Faire" for "Mom Entrepreneurs"! This event is also a Toys for Tots Fundraiser, in which each vendor and everyone who comes to the event are urged to bring an unwrapped toy for the donation to Toys for Tots. There will be a very elegant atmosphere with cream colored table clothes and candles as well as lots of great wine and appetizers. It will be a great place to shop for the holidays and to come show your support and party with the best of us! ; ) The event will be at the Merryvale Winery from 7 to 9pm, tomorrow, Wednesday the 28th of November in St. Helena. AND if you come, come to my table (Tulips and Turnips) and say you saw the invite on Tulips and Turnips blog, you will be entered to win a very cool Christmas gift from me that I will be announcing a week from the event date on my blog. Other ways at enter will be to go check out my new website www.tulipsandturnips.com, and tell me what your favorite item is. The site will not be up until Nov. 30th., also another entry would be to follow Tulips and Turnips, and leave a comment about why you think you should win this great prize. It's not munch but its a perfect little something for a woman who needs a special place to put her small things. Hint hint : ) Also I will be doing the christmas stocking giveaway again this year, just like last year. It will most likely be posted on here on the second Monday in December. Keep a look out for the rules for entry into the giveaway. ; )


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.
