"To create a new business that makes money, and
more significantly, employs others, and more significantly,
gives a product to a customer that improves their life, is our greatest challenge, our greatest opportunity, and the greatest gift, far greater than any charity that we can give our fellow person."

Thanks to OtherHOOD!

Thanks to OtherHOOD for a wonderful review of Hand Picked Pumpkin this morning:

Did you ever wish you could design children's clothing? Well now is your chance! Hand Picked Pumpkin is a modern line of limited and custom baby clothing. They have it all. For baby go with the basics either short or long sleeve body suits, cute romper, overalls or crew tees. For toddlers you can go with cozy designer shorts, drawstring pants or an adorable hoodie. They come in a variety of colors and are 100% cotton. The best can mix and match prints and fabrics. Maybe you like the retro stripe with the rodeo cowboy pattern or the daisy pattern with pink polka dots. You can keep playing around with the design until you find one that suits your child's style the best.

I was able to create a cute hoodie for Little B. It was a lot of fun to pick the design and colors of the garment. I choose a chocolate brown color for the hoodie and kiwi for the inside lining. The two patterns I choose where the Rodeo Kids Cream and Retro Mini Strip and I have to say it turned out awesome! I was so happy with my creation and it looks adorable on my little guy (sorry for no picture of him but he wont stay still long enough for me to get a good snap shot). I was so impressed with the quality of the clothing, it is gorgeous!

I love knowing that no one else will have the same style as Little B. Face it - if you have boys you know that there is a lack of cute clothing for them and that is why I jumped at the chance to make a one of a kind outfit for him. But if you are not in the mood to customize you can shop their ready made selections which are just as sweet!
