May Recap

Happy Memorial Day. It is hard to believe that almost a month has past since my last update. Time has gotten away from me again, it has been a busy month. Here is a quick recap.
Lily had her surgery on the 8th to remove one of her back toes. Thankfully it was not cancer. It turned out to be a benign tumor and bone infection. The surgery resolved the problem and is back to normal now. She has compensated well for the missing toe and is not having any problem's getting around which is good because my back can't take carrying her around anymore.
It is finally starting to feel like summer here which is good because we are trying container gardening  this year. I will keep you posted on the progress. So far the cucumber plant has gone missing though. It was the only plant we put directly in the ground and something dug it up. 
 I know you are probably tired of me talking about hats, but I want to share these great photos some of my buyers have been sharing with me. They are professional photos of their kids wearing the personalized hats with their names that I make.

I also got a hat order for a dog's first birthday! The buyer send me this photo of him wearing it. Love it!

I hope to make more dog themed hats in the future now.

The hats the kids are wearing in the photos are personalized with their names using the block alphabet dies from PTI.  This is what the personalized girls hats look like close up.

Since I shared a collage of the boy hats in a previous post, here is collage of all the bright girl colors I have done so far together too.
These hats are available in my Etsy shop and as you can see they make a great photo prop.
That's all for now. Hopefully I will get to post more next month.  If you have the day off today I hope it is a good one and the rest of your week is great too.

HI Terri,

Great photos of the kids with the hats. They are adorable and the dog too!

Hope you are getting rain today. We have had rumbling of thunder and a few drops but really need a steady gentle rain to soak the ground up here. Good luck on your potted garden. Planted mine over the holiday weekend.

Take care!
