inspired to party!!

it's party time over at 5 Minutes For Mom! i simply can't pass up a good party, so here i am!
this is my little corner of the web where i write about my life as a home birthing, breastfeeding, cloth diapering, baby wearing mommy to 4 great kids. i knit a lot, i sew a little and i love showing off my projects!
i have a little online shop called inspired mama creations where i sell organic baby and mama care products as well as hand painted and kettle dyed yarn. i just bought my first drop spindle so i can start spinning my own yarn too! whee!

so, how about a party game? i am always looking for inspiration for new yarn colorways, so please leave a comment with your wonderful idea~ something fun like Bert and Ernie or The Cat in the Hat, and it just might be the newest colorway at inspired mama creations!
there are many great prizes to be won at this blog party, but a few that i am especially excited about are:
~a kleen kanteen sippy cup from non toxic tots
~ a blog makeover from shauna at see my designs
~ "I make milk, what's your super power?" tee shirt from crunchy domestic goddess
and of course a $25 gift certificate from welcome to my world of dreams would be great too!
thank you for visiting my little blog, and don't forget to leave a comment so i can come visit you!

Here are a couple inspired by my little guy*, j nmnbbn nnnnnnnnnnnnnmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

The above was typed by him ;) Ok, so inspired by that sweet boy, Buzz Lightyear, Pirate, Spiderman and Superman. Those would all be fantastic colorways!!!!

i love all of your beautiful pictures. :)

btw, i was a breech baby born c-section too.

i don't know much about yarn and knitting (yet??), but how about rainbow sherbet, strawberry shortcake, orange marmelade and apple pucker? ;)

I love your photos! Very nice blog. Nice to meet you. Stop by and say hello. Happy Partying!

ooh! hand painted yarn. I tried it but my yarn came out fairly muddy colored. You'll love the spindle! I then moved on to a spinning wheel. Liked that even more.

Happy Ultimate Blog Party! It's so much fun to hop around and discover new blogs!

Hi! Happy partying! :)

Hi. Stopping by from the party.
Can't wait to come back and look at more of your projects!

Stopped by to crash your party and I'm glad I did, as there is nothing more fun than meeting other creative Mama's out there! I so wish I could knit, but sadly I can't. I do however scrapbook for my own personal enjoyment and as a profession too. I will stop by your online store as I'm expecting my second child this July and it sounds great!
