You're Invited To A Baby Shower...

A virtual blogging baby shower that is. I became blogging friends with Zlaty last year. She joined a few of my fabric swaps and has always been there for me with a kind word on every one of my posts.

I know a lot of you know her through her wonderful blog Zlaty Sews. Well, she recently announced on her blog on this post that she and her husband are expecting their first baby in January...and it's a girl !!! Woo Hoo!

I was thinking, wouldn't it be fun if we had a Blogging Baby Shower for her! I've never done this before, but I was thinking we could:
  • make, create or share something with Zlaty for the baby
  • maybe knit a pair of booties or blanket, sew a little quilt or wall hanging or buy a cute little baby frame or how about those onesies, boy do babies go through those!...just something small to share with the new baby.
  • she is due in late January, so we have plenty of time to make something
  • I will have a reminders in the months to come
  • in Zlaty's family, the tradition is to have the baby shower after the baby is born, so I will send everyone who wants to make something for Zlaty the address where to send it, probably in February.
I have spoken to Zlaty about this idea already, so it's not a surprise. I just think it will be so much fun to get little packages in the mail from all her blogging friends during that special time.

If you'd like to come to a Blogging Baby Shower, just leave a comment here. Hope you can join in the fun. Maybe we'll have a few baby tutorial posts along the way.

Thanks in advance for joining in on the fun,



  1. What a kind and generous idea!

    It sounds great.


  2. Thank you for the invitation, count me in.

  3. Hi Karen,
    I follow your and Zlati's blogs in my Google Reader. (Love your TTT, btw!) I think it is a sweet thing to do for somebody expecting their first baby. I happen to share my name and nationality with Zlati (we are both born in Bulgaria), so I understand why she asks for the shower to be after the baby's birth. In Bulgaria it is considered a bad omen to prepare things for the baby before it is born - it is a superstition thing, but most people stick to it anyway. Usually the family does prepare baby stuff but they keep it secret from the mother. I suppose this dates from the old days when childbearing and birth were pretty much risky and relatively dangerous events and should smth go wrong the baby stuff around the house might make it psychologically more difficult for the mother.
    That said, I'd like to join you in making something for her and her daughter, of course. We'll keep it hush-hush ;-)

  4. I would love to join you. I am a follower of Zlaty's blog and it is so exciting for them to be expecting their first child.

  5. It's a lovely idea but I'm afraid I cannot participate because my first grandchild is due in 3 weeks time and I am soooooooo busy with that.
    Well done for your generous thoughts though.
    Blessings, Star

  7. I think this is a such a delightful idea, and would love to join! I am not familiar with her blog, so that is the first step..this will be such a special time for her, and her husband- and we are so lucky to help them celebrate a new life! Maybe after reading her blog, I'll get ideas about what she might like...fondly, Sandy
