New designs! New designs!

I finally posted these designs in our shop today!

The "Brightest Crayon in the Box" Toddler Tee
And our brand new "Depth of Love" design.
I love this one so much! I have already printed 2 of my own shirts with this design! I have a new tshirt style for this design too and I really like the fit! It is a tshirt with a feminine cut.

Come check out our new designs in our Etsy shop!

Love for the new black tees!

January 29, 2010
New Black tshirts! The color difference is so dramatic!
Ryan digs his new Robot tee! I couldn't get him to take it off after we finished pictures. Oh well, looks like he has a new shirt to add to his wardrobe.
You can have one now too! The black and navy are the most dramatic when printed with the dye remover. I'm loving the new black!

January 28, 2010
I woke up to the most wonderful surprise this morning! Cantaloupe Corner's Etsy shop hit 200 sales!!

It seems like only yesterday we opened up our little website and posted our first 3 designs. *tear*

And now we have a full shop and lots of room to grow! I'm working on some fabulous new designs right now and I CANNOT WAIT to get them in my shop! Oh, why does it have to take so long! I wish I could take my ideas from my head and stick them straight into Etsy. Maybe it's the laziness in me, or maybe I just get so excited about our new stuff I need to show it to the world right now!

Ok, on to the more important part of this post. . . A GIVEAWAY!

In honor of our 200th sale I am going to give away a "BEAT IT" Creeper (onesie).
 (sizes are 6m, 12m, 18m, and 24m)

A slice of Whippy Cake!

January 25, 2010
What do you get when you mix a seriously talented chica, fabulous fabrics, a bit of bling, and a little sugar and spice?

You get Whippy Cake!

First of all, the name Whippy Cake is so mouthwateringly adorable that it's makes you want to say it again!
Whippy Cake!
(P.S. If you want to know the story behind the name go here and click on "About Me".)

Becki, the creator of this marvelous company, is my super talented friend!
 When I met Becki I was really surprised to find out that she is a lot like me! We both are obsessive crafters/moms, who love, LOVE to try new things!

She has some oh-so lovely items available in her Shop.

Everything from fabulous textured wipey cases,

 and her newest additions: Glamour Bands and Chokers.

They are all beautiful and well made.

Becki has been one of my greatest inspirations for Cantaloupe Corner too. She has been here to help me before Cantaloupe Corner even had a name. Thanks Becki!

Go check out Whippy Cake and see why I think it's sweeter than a Strawberry Cream Cheese Cupcake with sprinkles on top!

(mmmm, this is making me hungry.)

This stuff is Tutu cute!

January 22, 2010
I was just wondering around the http://www.waytutucute.com/ website and found some adorable items I just had to share with y'all!

Mis-matching amazing patterns is all the rage these days and Vintage Lucy's keeps it funky with this cute top!

You all know I have a thing for orange!
This sweet orange-y pillowcase dress is from Baby Trend.

If ever I have another baby boy, he will definately be wearing these soft sole shoes by Bugaloo.

Meet Katherine. She is a Lushy Plushy doll by Miss Sugar Pops. All of their dolls are made from recycled materials and each is unique! This is a rag doll with personality!

There's so much more great stuff!

I you found a reason to stop by WayTutuCute.com because it is FABULOUS!

Lookin' good!

What a pleasant surprise! As I was browsing around the world wide web today, I came across a blog called "I Bet You Look Good In That Tshirt" a.k.a. IBYLGINTTS . 
First of all, what a cool name!

The best part was seeing our own "Little Mister" tshirt as a feature along with some other super nifty tees!

THANKS for putting my little mister tshirt on your site! You guys are the best!

Cargo Pants Messanger Bag!

January 11, 2010
I just saw this on Ucreate today and I had to share! It's awesome!
I'm a HUGE fan of saving money and finding fun uses for stuff that I already have.
Here's a fantastic idea from Noodlehead: Use some old cargo pants to make an amazing messenger bag!

I've been holding on to some old cargos and now I have a cool project to make with them. Saving money and saving room in my garage makes me a happy crafter!
 Kudos to Noodleheads for the great idea!

Happy New Year!

January 6, 2010

Happy New Year!
2010 is here and at Cantaloupe Corner are anticipating a fabulous, fantastic, fun filled year with heaps of new products and more exciting stuff!
What's happening this year?
Here are some of our goals for 2010:
1.Open up Cantaloupe Blossoms on Etsy! (I am sooo excited about this!) It's going to be all my favorite accessories, including Blossom Headbands and Clips! I'll start adding item this month! Can't wait!!!!
2. New designs! (I've got some fun ones in the works right now! I can't wait to see how they turn out!)
3. Expand our size selection to include bigger kid's sizes!
4. Craft Shows! (For all you locals. I'll let you know dates and times)
5. Organize and streamline our product lines. (Out with the old, in with the bold!)
6. Organize and set up our new work area. We've graduated from the cramped dining room to having an entire office dedicated to CC!
7. Create, Create, Create! (I dream about this part every night,*sigh*)
8. (The most important) Find more time to spend with my sweet little boys. They are the reason I started CC in the first place.
Now it's written down and everyone has seen it so I can't take any of these back. :)
I hope you all have the best year EVER!
My motto for this year: Don't wait around for things to happen to you. Make them happen!
