Person for whom we are cheering: Our talented friend Jahje from Baby Jives is on the top 20 of Martha Stewart presents American Made Awards. We adore her stunning hand-crafted mobiles and wish her every success. If you admire her work too, head on over and vote for Jahji. One American Maker will be selected by our audience for the Audience Choice Award. The winner will be honored at the American Made event in New York City, will appear in Martha Stewart Living magazine, and will receive $10,000 to further his or her business.
Thing I have acquired that I adore: My husbands respect! By way of Notre Dame T-shirts sent as a little surprise from Tailgate Clothing Company. He finally understands that I am very, very important. ha. These t’s are super soft with a great cut. Not feeling sporty, spice? Their vintage collection might be more your thing. Go Irish!
Song Stuck in My Head All Week: We are the Dinosaurs by The Laurie Berkner Band. I won’t even realize I’m humming it and the kids start going nuts. Have you marched around the house to this one yet?
Instagram Photo Contest Funtime: We have become obsessed with Instragram since signing up a couple weeks ago, so we want to play with you there (Follow us @prudentjaime and @prudentjacinda.) Each week we are going to do a silly photo contest with a theme. So last week @Mrs_Chunk captured #craftykids with a shot(s) of her artisté getting into some artwork. This week it’s all about #workinprogress. Grab a shot of something that represents a project in development. An embroidery project perhaps? Upload your pics on instagram and hashtag them #thisweekonprudentbaby, along with the week’s theme, #workinprogress. We will pick a winner based on no discernible criteria, and post the pic and instagram handle here in this column next Friday.
Fabric I love: Cloud9 does it again with these crisp Geocentric Print Canvas fabrics.
THING YOU WANT TO WIN: Have you started planning your entries to our contest to win a Brother PE500 Embroidery Machine? Get the deets here and start crafting. We can’t wait to see your entries!
