Did you know that SheShe (my mama) and I had/have a baby & children's clothes business?
Have you seen that adorable logo on my sidebar and wondered "what IS Mattie Mae Designs"?
Let me tell you the back story of our little adventure - my mama started making these adorable hand-appliqued (yes, HAND-APPLIQUED, as in not done with a machine) onesies for my nephew before he was born in 2009. They were so cute, that I had to get in on the fun, too!
Then, Miss Annie Louise came along. And time was not abundant as it had been before.
Mattie Mae Designs got to be more of a hassle, more like another job, and not as fun as it used to be.
SheShe and I have been talking a lot about how we miss it. I saved all the onesies and shirts that we made for AL, and I am getting them made into a quilt. We went through the bag the other day, and we almost cried at how much we missed it. Looking at all the hard work and creativity and fun...it was bittersweet.
So, we have decided to re-embark on our adventure - but this time, we are doing it the right way. No overwhelming feelings allowed. No "takes-up-all-our-extra-time" excuses.
I think of so many of you as creative geniuses...will you share your knowledge?
And if you're looking for a fun and unique shirt for your little one (or one to give as a gift), please let me know - I would LOVE to help you!
Have a great Thursday, y'all!
