Getting little ones to focus on the camera!

So I have been working with a friend whom does photography around Tucson.  We where talking and got on the subject of camera buddies, lens buddies or whatever you choose to call them.  I am always looking for ways to get my daughter to focus on the camera and not everything around her.  So I have come up with a few different camera buddies.  Currently the ones I have can only fit smaller camers but if stretched enough can get onto the larger ones.  The first one I came up with is elmo camera buddy.
I love this little character.  I had it on my camera and my daughter just loved it.  She wanted to grab it and play with it.  It might have done too well of a job because she kept trying to attack it.  These things are just so cute and amazing.  I loved being able to create a few of these and can't wait to get them up in my shop.
Here are two more pictures of the other two versions I have as of right now.

These are my other two designs and just love them.  I am hoping to come up with a few more designs in the next few weeks and get those posted as well.  I just love being able to create and make new items.  If their is ever anything you would like to see me make please contact me on here at my etsy store www.etsy.com/shop/deannacreations or through email at gingerbread271@yahoo.com and would to start creating what my audience is looking for. You all have a wonderful day.
Thank you

WOW time sure does seem to fly lately.  It seems like yesterday I just found out I was pregnant and was still just a server.  Now I have an eight month old and am managing a restaurant.  I can't believe how everything seems to change so very much.  I am thankful for all I have in my life and can't believe how great it has started to get.  One of the best things in my life besides my baby girl is being able to create amazing things for people.  I love being able to come home and just sit and crochet the cutest things for everyones little ones to wear.  Currently I just finished creating my new owl hat.  I only have one type of owl hat ready right now but soon I will have ones that have their eyes open and have them in all sorts of colors. Here is a picture of the current one I have.
I love the new owl hat that I have avaliable and think it will look super cute on any aged child.  I love being able to create all these new items and try them out on new babies.  I am lucky to have found a photographer here in Tucson who is willing to work with me and help me get amazing pictures of my hats with little ones in them.  Please check out his facebook page at http://www.facebook.com//#!/joelchenphotography
As you can see by this picture he does amaing work and is an all around great guy to work with. Well enough writing and talking for one night.  It is time for me to get back to creating new and amazing items for my shop.

wash cloths for your little ones!

So currently my newest project is making wash cloths for babies.  I started doing this because I am not to big of a fan of the wash cloths they sell for babies.  I wanted something that would stand up a little more and I wouldn't lose in the washer and dryer.  I currently do not have any pictures but I am working hard on creating many different colors.  When I get all the colors together I am going to put up all of them so you can see all the colors I am going to offer my customers.  I am just so excited about being able to offer wash cloths along with my hats and other baby accessories that I have! Well that is all I really have time for right now.  Remember to check out my website!

A new year and a new start!

WOW I have not had enough time in my life to get online and really work on my blog! I am truly hoping to change that and be able to provide not only my customers with new things going on but to also be able to talk about a variety of topics.  Today I want to talk about just having a home based business and some of the things I have found that have helped it be at least a little successful.   Lets start with my background. 
I am a 23 year old, with a seven month old baby at home who also works a full time 50 hour work week.  I love my life and love the fact that I can do all the things I want to do.  I started crocheting and doing a lot of different crafty things at a young age.  My grandma really is my inspiration.  I would go spend many weekends at her house and we would spend hours, and I mean hours just working on all sorts of different crafts.  My grandma was a very talented painter (in my opinion) and was also really into making different ceramic items.   She herself ran a small business out of her house and sold at all the local craft fairs. 
This here is an image of one of the paintings she made.  She made this for me when I was born and now I have it up in my daughters room.  I love it so very much and it really inspires me when I see it and I know I can do alll that I want to and more.  In my life I have been very blessed to be able to do many things and now I am able to go after my dream and be able to make things for everyone and hopefully make someones day with these items.  I started learning about crochet at around 12 I would say.  At first I only new the basic and would just make blanket after blanket of a single crochet.  It was really time consuming but I loved doing it.  As I got older I started noticing that you could make so much more than just a blanket and that is how Deanna's Creations was born.  I started seeing all this awesome hats you could make and booties and just new I wanted to be able to do it.  I started out by making things for different people in my life and finally decided to start selling these items online.  I have been doing a trial and error to find what people like and what people want to buy.  I have started working with photographers and many other people but that is another blog and story.  Right now I am just trying to develop my craft and make many new things! One of the new items I have just added to my shop is my new crochet visor hats!
This is just one example of my visor hat.  I currently only have it in three colors but am willing to do any custom orders for it.  Please visit my website at www.etsy.com/shop/deannacreations and also my facebook page http://www.facebook.com//#!/pages/Deannas-Creations/203872906338176
