Merry Merry!

I wanted to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas before I check out of here for a bit.

Last night we all got to sleep with some Biscuit bedding for the first time.

It was very comfy, and Pete was being so sweet telling me how soft it was and how he liked it even better than our former ultra-fancy sheets.

Our house is so cozy for Christmas. Pete’s family are in town visiting and this will be our first Christmas we have spent in our own house as a family. Ever. Every other year we have been traveling.

I get very choked up with gratitude about it all.

How beautiful are our stockings? Growing up I had the most special needlepoint stocking my mom had made, and we have looked for ages to find a seamstress that can do these intricate stitches. We finally found someone, and started making the stockings last year right after Gracie was born. You choose these painted canvases, and can change out some of the details to be specific to your family. Like in Gracie’s we put in our puppies, made her hair light brown, and had her holding her favorite stuffed animal bunny. We just finally got them all the other day, and they were so worth the wait. Special family heirlooms we will have forever.

These past few weeks have been crazy, and very draining. Jordan had to quit to move home and deal with some family things, and Maddie was only working in the afternoon, so it has just been me in the store most of the time. I have been working 6-7 days a week, 10 hours a day since we opened and I am burned out. It has been so incredible seeing our vision come into fruition, and I thank you all for your support. It has also been very frustrating dealing with delays and things just taking a long time to get where they need to be, and so I also thank you for your patience. We were able to get a bunch of orders filled and out in time for Christmas, and I am sincerely sorry to everyone who hasn’t received theirs yet. We will have all of our printed items in as soon as we reopen, and the white items shortly after that.

January will bring some big improvements to our site and store, more offerings, and bedding in stock and ready to ship! We will also have our house properly shot to show you, and some other fun projects to share as well.

So Merry Christmas to all of you. I am going to shut off and enjoy some much needed quality time with my family for a week and will be back in the New Year!

xoxo

    Merry Christmas to all of you! I am obsessed with your stockings since I have a needlepoint w/ my name on it as well that I grew up with and love. The personal details are amazing. Grace’s almost brought a tear to my eye w/ how special that will be for her to have. Also noticed Bella didn’t make the cut for Pete’s. Hah playing favorites, much…

    Merry Christmas to all of you! Can’t wait to see you soon. And congratulations on the new exciting ventures!

    Merry Christmas, Bailey! Thank you for sharing your journey with us–honestly and openly about the ups and downs. I really do love reading your blog. ALSO, I’m obsessed with your stockings. What treasures!

    I hope your family had a wonderful Christmas! You certainly had much to celebrate this year! Love your blog and cannot wait for new Biscuit items! Also, any chance your stocking seamstress has an online store?!? We had custom needlepoint stockings growing up, and I’m having the hardest time finding someone to do them for our family.

    Hi,
    You would not happen to remember the artist who did the stockings would you? I called Chandail and they are under new ownership and they had no idea what I was talking about!
