alacrity designs is born!

wow - what a week! clint was gone for a conference for most of the week & mom i spent hours upon hours sewing & creating. i feel like i've been in a time warp - like i was gone in sewing world for a week, but i've emerged & i'm so excited about the work! thanks so much for all of your sweet comments - i think you'll like these even more!

my official site is -! check it out!!! so far i have several onesies, a few aprons, & a handtowel. i'm working on burp cloths this weekend & shoes, & then eventually baby bedding! i'll include pics here, but there are more in the etsy shop. my multi-talented husband did a photo shoot in our backyard & the pics turned out so great!

so the name... alacrity - "cheerful readiness, willingness, liveliness". it's a "gre" word i learned a few years ago. weeks ago when i was trying to think of a name, alacrity kept coming up - on the radio & in books. when i looked it up again, i loved the meaning. it represents the way i want to live life - joyfully & ready for what comes, with a willingness to be present for the moment & to be a part of Life w/ a capital "L" - true Life! i design with this in mind. (you can read more on my "profile" off of etsy.)

these onesies were made with fabric i had on hand - i'm getting more in this week, so i'll do some variations. if you'd like something that you don't see on etsy, let me know - i can make it for you. also, i'm working on some sets for gifts w/ a price reduction, so inquire if interested!

let me know what you think!!!

***look @ etsy for hand towels & aprons - i didn't want to overwhelm your computers w/ too many pics...
