Let's Draw!!

I have been making all sorts of custom items and gifts for friends and family.

I made a new item for my nephew (he turns 3 this weekend) and thought, this would be great for the shop. This is AJ's gift
So...introducing the newest item to hit The Bird & The Bean shop:
Crayon and Drawing paper rolls!

I have made mine a little bigger and they can hold markers, pens, pencils or crayons!

My mom always supplied my brother and I with paper and pens when we went anywhere that traditionally bores kids. I loved being able to zone out and draw and color.

These rolls allow kids to always have supplies on hand and let the creative juices flow wherever they are.

More styles coming soon!

Custom Blankets

Blankets always make a great baby shower gift; and they go great with my double-tie top baby outfits!
I received a custom request for a larger blanket with satin border.

My customer simply gave me a color preference and I went from there, complete creative freedom!

I choose some great graphic colors that would work for a baby or a toddler.

Here is the finished piece with the gift bag it shipped in.
All Bird & Bean orders are packaged in reusable cloth bags!
Be kind to Mother Earth

I am currently brainstorming for new clothing designs, I got some new fabric while I was that is burning a hole in my mind and I want to make something fantastic with it.

In the meantime, while I am running all sorts of ideas through the sieve known as my mind, I am also working on launching my

art site:

I have been making window-hinged mattes for my art and writing down clothing ideas along the way!!
New ideas coming soon!!
Keep checking in for details.

Home again

Even when you want to run away, it is sometimes nice to come home and sleep in your own bed for a little bit.
I had a wonderful bit of time away, but alas, all things must end and so we came home this morning.

The blow of my return "back to earth" was softened when I opened my email, and found this sweet little lovely snuggling up underneath the "Kissy Fish" blanket. Her Uncle ordered this for her the day she was born. What a pretty little doll!

Another little "Bird" living the Bird & Bean lifestyle.
