hooray for monograms!

so excited to announce that I finally have monogramming up and running!  I'll be offering the full circle monogram (pictured) on any of the items in the shop for an additional $5.00 charge.  we'll see how that one does and then maybe add a few other options.

being from the south, I am just a tad bit obsessed with that I've personalized several of beckett's bibs & burp cloths I'm moving on and am going to attempt to make him his first christmas stocking this week. if it turns out ok, I'll share it with you all. :)

 this has been a roller coaster of a year for me.  many more ups than downs and amazing in so many ways.  I'm so thankful for all that has resulted from the changes.  highlights, you say? here we go...

* gained 34 pounds
* became solely self employed
* kept my etsy shop alive and kicking for over a year
* went 8 months with no alcohol
* bought my first new car
* made it through a year of marriage
* weighed 7 pounds less than my husband...
* lost 25 pounds
* had a baby!

(the weight gain/loss were direct results of being pregnant, as was the 8 months of no drinking) :)

thanks to all of you who read this blog and support all that is oatmeal lace.  it's been an incredible journey. can't wait to see what the next year brings. xoxo

survey says...

I need you guys input, por favor.  I am debating adding the option of a reversible clutch to the shop.  I've had a couple requests for this in the past, and wanted to poll you all to see if it will be something that is worth offering.  you can either leave me a comment or just vote in the poll I've included...or you can do both! I so appreciate you taking your time to leave an opinion. :) so, here we go!

  would you be interested in a reversible clutch, for a slightly higher price?
