Fancy Whales for Olivia Rae

Fancy Whales for Olivia Rae

Thank you to Keeping it Real for inviting me to participate in Really Crafty Link Party #33. I am proud to share Oh BaBee Originals‘ latest baby shower banner for sweet little Olivia Rae and her mama. This will highlight the decor at her baby shower and hang in the nursery, ready for Olivia’s arrival.

It is made with cloth doilies, pink and gray swirl decorative paper, wooden script letters and dolphin embellishments, adhesive pink flowers, and wide pink ribbon. All of the pieces are assembled, with the exception of a few flowers. It just needs to be connected and reinforced with the pink ribbon, from which it will hang.

This commission came from the friend of a loyal customer and is the second piece I’ve made for this woman. Last year, I made her bridal shower banner!  It is such a joy to be a special part of these momentous occasions.

Behind the Scenes Book Scoop

Behind the Scenes Book Scoop…

Have you been wondering about my book? Did you think I gave up? Were you devastated about it? Well, fear not! Here is the scoop and it’s oh so exciting!

Cover Art

My publisher asked me the other day if I was a painter and I said no, but showed him my Oh BaBee! Originals portfolio and he was drawn to one of my pieces, my favorite piece as a matter of fact. He suggested that I create and photograph a new piece for the cover of my book. Interesting…never even thought of that! I’ll do it.

Promo Video

We are in the very beginning stages of a promotional video using the lovely Amy Dix with High Rise Promotions as a consultant. She is a firecracker and knows all there is to know about promoting anything and everything. She’s also just so darn fun to be around!

Launch Party

Discussions are in the works for a launch party in a beautiful, relaxing, intimate location with special guests from a local, up and coming group of young artists and entrepreneurs! Did you notice the discretion? Yes! Don’t want to give too much away. We must keep you guessing.

Title

Ugh. The title. The most important part of the book. I’ve had a working title since October and have never really liked it. It’s time to get serious about this. Maybe, just maybe, the art work created for the cover will lead me to a title. Or the other way around. Or not. Ugh.

 

No matter what, my release date is 11/1/16. Follow me on this exciting journey for the next four months. It should be a good one. And thank you for being interested. That’s good too.

Really Crafty Link Party #19

Bridal banner from Oh BaBee! Originals made for a friend of a friend last spring. I loved the color and theme choices. This was made with cloth doilies, card stock, beach/ocean embellishments, white rope, and adhesive lettering. I especially appreciate photos from the recipients as my handiwork hopefully blesses their lives with joy and good fortune.

Oh BaBee! Originals started when I was pregnant with my daughter and wanted to make something special for her nursery. Since then, I have made special gifts for brides, new moms, neighbors, friends, and charitable organizations . I enjoy the creative work and being part of such special occasions.

Masterpiece for Matteo

Joining the Really Crafty Link Party today with my masterpiece for Matteo. Check out this adorable little guy! I just had to make him a little something. It’s made with upcycled shirt fabric and glass stones, and embellishments of a bubbling fish, a sweet seal, and a happy octopus. I hope Matteo dreams about sailing on the open sea with this on his nursery wall.

Play Doh Master

Don’t know if I’m biased, but my daughter seems to be quite the expert with Play Doh.  She makes food for weddings and parties, hair styles for dolls and ponies, and clothing/accessories for just about anyone who needs it.

This might not be exactly what you think of for the Really Crafty Link Party but I couldn’t resist showing off my daughter’s talents!
