Settling in and back to work!

Holy moly, it’s been forever and a day since my last post!!  Three whole months, to be exact.  Well, a lot has gone on in the House of AquaSeventy6!

First and foremost, I am out of my in-laws and into my own place!  I am still in the process of unpacking and putting together my design studio, but my goal is to have it up and running by the time the kids get out of school (June 4!)  I’m so excited, not only to be back in my hometown, but to have found a home in my favorite neighborhood.  I lived here for 7 years prior to moving to Virginia, and I haven’t felt more at home anywhere, ever. ♥

I participated in a spring trunk show this month with my same handmade posse, and we are planning a Back-to-School event for the end of summer.

I’ve also been busy working apart from AquaSeventy6.  I was hired on in January as the Event Manager for a super cute local party hall. (Check out Pretty in Pink Party Place for more information.)  This has kept my weekends busy, but I love having my weekdays free to be with my kids and work on my designs.

Speaking of designs, I can’t leave you without sharing a couple of new applique burp cloths I’ve been working on for little girls!

Since I am no longer commuting 100 miles per day…yes, you read that correctly…I have much more time to blog, sew, DIY, etc.  So, keep your eyes peeled for much, much more!  xoxo



Little Man Wet Bag

As you can tell, I’m kind of obsessed with the ‘stache.  I think it’s because my dad sported a mustache for the first 34 years of my life.  I’m pretty sure his upper lip was paralyzed for months after shaving it off.  He won’t admit to upper-lip physical therapy, but it’s moving now so I’m not totally convinced.  😉

I designed the “Little Man” Wet Bag for my nephews, but my #1 client (who also happens to be hosting a mustachio baby shower) wanted one for her nephew as well, so I have two fabric combinations to share with you.

The following one matches the aprons I showed you earlier in the week.

This is the one I designed for my little guys:

I wish I would have had wet bags to keep in my diaper bag when my kiddos were babies.  I used to carry around plastic store bags and giant ziplocks to hold all of their messy bibs and burp cloths.  These would have been perfect.  Lucky for you, though!  Now they exist and you can get one for your diaper bag, or as a gift.

They roll up easily, so they won’t take up much room!

You can even pair them up with the matching burp cloths!
