Lots of pics to share :)

Hello!!!!  How is everybody today?  Hopefully fabulous!  I finally have some pics to share, so sorry for the delay.  Here are some of the baby items that were made for little Hollyn ~
first the quilt ~
here is a close up view ~

 here is a pic of her diaper bag and her hairbow holder (not sure where they got the cute little penquin hooks, they are adorable though) ~

there are boatloads of pockets in the diaper bag, here is a close up pic of one end, and each penquin is actually a pocket~

here is a pic of her name in her room (it is really sparklie irl)~

here is a pic of sweet little Hollyn (almost three weeks old, she is wearing a big flower clip I made) ~

here is her hairbow holder when it was empty ~
close up pic of the top ~

Of course I had to make a hairbow holder for her three year old cousin Kaya~

and a french memo board for her two year old cousin Cooper~

I have been making minkie tag blankies for our etsy shop AlaPamala.  When I took them over to show my daughter (who is also making things for our shop), three year old Kaya told her
brother, "don't touch, these are for baby Hollyn." :)  She is saving everything for the baby, he he he!  Here are a few of the oh-SOOOO-soft tag blankies for the etsy shop so far (I have boatloads more, since I have been sewing like a wild woman lately) ~

another monkey minkie, this one with lighter brown for the back  ~

I have also been making the cutest little belts and hairbow sets ~

So as you can see, we have been pretty busy.  I have lots more photos, but will share them in the next few weeks.  I am actually hoping to scrap a few cards tonight if I don't run out of day.  There was a butterfly project blog challenge, and I hoped to participate.  However, the day has gotten away from me, so we will see.  I also signed up for an online book club at BizChicksBlog on facebook (check it out, lots of great advice there), so I need to read my chapters.  I better get busy!  :) 

That is it for tonight.  Take care, and I hope you all enjoy a joyful and creative week!  ~ Pam

Those are fab!! Love the minkies!! And of course the adorable baby pic! ;-)

How did I come up with Pam's Eclectic Stuff?

Pam- that is me. :)

eclectic --adj.- selecting what seems best of various styles or ideas
*Since I like a huge variety of arts and mediums, this seemed perfect, we will talk about the best of various styles or ideas.

stuff- The noun stuff has 7 senses -
1. material, stuff -- (the tangible substance that goes into the makeup of a physical object; "wheat is the stuff they use to make bread")2. whatchamacallit, stuff, whatsis, sundry, sundries -- (miscellaneous unspecified artifacts; "the trunk was full of stuff")3. stuff, clobber -- (informal terms for personal possessions; "did you take all your clobber?")4. stuff, stuff and nonsense, hooey, poppycock -- (senseless talk; "don't give me that stuff")5. stuff -- (unspecified qualities required to do or be something; "the stuff of heros"; "you don't have the stuff to be a United States Marine")6. stuff -- (information in some unspecified form; "it was stuff I had heard before"; "there's good stuff in that book")7. stuff -- (a critically important or characteristic component; "suspense is the very stuff of narrative")

*What more needs to be said? I really thought about using Pam's Eclectic Sundries, but I thought that might be tough to remember. :) Stuff is easy and conveys a variety of meanings. I like the definition- miscellaneous unspecified artifacts. I also liked whatchamacallit, but that is a lot of typing. :)

So there you have it!
