Just a quick little note: I added some new items to the Etsy shop yesterday (or the day before? Yeah I think the day before), whoo! We haaaaave…
…and more self-fold pocket tote in new fabrics!
There are more to come of both, but I can’t put it all up at once, now can I? Gotta leave you something to look forward to, no?

This Saturday, JennySold Designs is going to be at Haverford Township Day, my town’s giant block party on steroids of sorts, at which there will be a parade and about 260 booths worth of craft vendors, flea marketers, and community organizations, along with multiple food vendors, live music and (free!) kid’s activities. I’ll be selling my self-fold pocket totes, scarves, burp cloths, pacifier clips, lap blankets, children’s posters, and some headbands if baby Annie lets me squeeze a few more in. :). A good deal of what I will have that day isn’t going up for sale online until after the event, so if you want to have first crack at some of the goods seen below, come on over in person!
I will be sharing a space with my spiky-haired, comic-strippin’ alien-lovin’ friend Dawn Griffin, creator of Zorphbert & Fred and illustrator for the Abby’s Adventures children’s book series, so come check us out.

Well, she is three days late thus far so she isn’t actually IN these photos… but I wanted to show you a few pics of the room, which I have been calling the Nubb Hub (since I have been calling her Nubbs ever since she looked like a jellybean with nubbin arms and legs on the 8 week ultrasound). Ever see the old commercials for StubHub? Where the narrator is all “STUBB HUB!” in that weird little semi-singsong call? I can’t help but say “NUBB HUB!” every time I walk in here, even though I’m pretty certain they don’t even use that little line anymore. But whatever – it’s stuck now.
It’s pretty sunny in there as there’s another window just beyond the dresser I’m not showing, and the room for some reason seems to get the best afternoon light. Also, the yellow doesn’t hurt. I originally liked purple but we figured better safe than sorry just in case she came out a he.
You’ll see there really isn’t a theme per se, but I do think the room pulls together really well. And there are alot of polka dots. So I guess that counts for some consistency :)
My favorite parts, of course, are the things I made by hand for the room. Over the bookshelves (which I intended to cover the back of with fabric but never got around to doing) are the posters I drew and had printed to echo the awesome show screenprints we have all around the rest of the house. These are also for sale on my Etsy site, in case you want to buy them (which, come on, admit it, you know you do). The fabric bunting on the wall was something I had wanted to do for awhile, and was surprisingly easy; so easy I may go through my scraps and make a few sets to sell as well. Finally, the pink striped crib skirt you see was handmade by yours truly as well. There’s a pleat in the middle on each side that reveals a pink with pink polka panel as well; I didn’t capture it well on camera but trust me, it’s pretty cute.
And yes, yes that IS a stuffed doll of bacon in her crib. It talks too. No judging!
