Christmas Images

Here are a TON of Christmas Images I have that can be put on well... ANYTHING! Totes, bags, onesies, shirts, etc... There are some SUPER cute lettering!


I've tested out some products on Etsy and got two orders on the adorable scalloped dotted pillows. They are so cute and monogram really well. They come in pink, blue or white although I've only done pink ones so far.

More baby items

A few more onesie's and caps for a little baby... (sorry about the coloring of the last pic)

Monogrammed Bows

FINALLY! I got around to figuring out the monogramming on bows thing... Thought this turned out pretty cute! The bow is a 4.5" chunky bow and comes in multiple colors!


Monogrammed Blankets make great gifts for babies, teens or college kids. My favorites are the super plush satin microfleece. SO soft!

Cute Baby Sets

These onesie and "lovey" blankie set are so cute. I loved how they turned out and it makes a great gift for that adorable newborn!
