Bought a URL

Holy smokes, I bought a URL for Bobbles & Peanuts...scary stuff!  I did buy the web address
it is not functional yet, but hopefully soon!  I have a template chosen and I just need to wait for it to be processed!  I'm freaking out a little!  I think it will be so much easier for my customers and fans to just click and buy then to have to email me and then wait for an invoice, then wait for me...1 click and done!  I have to find a way of saying that orders will take 5-10 days to be complete because I can't manage to keep 50 bows in the same color in stock here in my basement craft area!  It is already such a mess down here--LOL!!  Anyway, I am hoping to have it all up and running within 4-6 weeks (at the most!). 
I have also been trying to think of more things to do to include all the boys out there who want something special too--and all the moms and dads who want to be able to buy things for their sons.  My daughter, Abby is 10 months now, and while I make most of my things while being inspired by her, I feel like my son, Seth, (who is almost 3) gets a little left out of the fun. 
My Peanuts :)

So I am looking into making appliqued t-shirts and maybe canvas bags for boys and girls too.  I cannot sew to save my life (and right now I have no time to learn), so I am looking into partnering with some people who make the appliques and then I can get creative with them.  We will see.  It is a very hard balancing act between sticking with what I am making and offering new things that people want to buy!  I'm getting better at it day by day!
So here are a few new pics of some items I have been working on

new Baseball theme bow                          

new flower clippies--lots of colors available

Caterpillars--I LOVE these!  They are a lot of fun!
My Bunch-of-Buggies; 1 each of ladybuggy, bumble bee, butterfly, and caterpillar in any color you want!  The bugs are just the most fun for me at the moment--I get a kick out of them!!!

Happy April!!!  I hope it is Spring-like where you are!  :)
