BTRT Patterns (on Etsy)

Thursday, 24 February 2011
CONGRATULATIONS to Laura Marie/ littledragonfly13!
And thanks to all our entrants!
This coming weekend's giveaway will begin Thursday night..

Become a fan on our BTRT Facebook page to get the latest giveaway news
(weekly giveaways!)
and follow this blog, too, so you won't miss a thing...
(see 'Followers' box on left hand side).
It is giveaway time again (yay!). If you are an artisan and/or small business owner interested in offering an item for a Weekend Giveaway, please send me a note for all the details.
This week we welcome Bonnie of Holden's Landing as our feature artisan and giveaway donor.  Bonnie is a woman of many talents!  Her flagship, so to speak is her Holden's Landing business with which she provides gorgeous handmade velour and embroidered diapers along with other luxurious baby items.  But she is also an experienced homeschooler whose programs and activities are offered under her 'Earth School' banner.  I have been a customer of Bonnie's and can attest to her great customer service and attention to detail (I adore my bamboo velour pillowcases!)

Tell us about Holden's Landing today~ you have been around a while, what is your focus at this time?
Holden's Landing is turning 7 this spring! We started with diapers and that is still our main focus, although they certainly have changed over the years. We started out offering only serged, print outer fitteds and AI2s. Today we still offer those, but our main focus is on hand dyed organic bamboo velour diapers featuring lots of embroidery! 

Butterfly Garden - Holden's Landing
Butterfly Garden Dreamscape
What inspires you?
Lots of things - but the biggest thing is nature. We were just driving down the highway the other day when I had to start jotting down ideas for new colorways based on the way the sky looked. i also get a lot of inspiration from customers - someone will come to me and say "Can you do something with an Odyssey theme?" (something I am working on now) and let me run wild with it - those are my favorite orders! 

Mermaid and shells
Lovescape Blanket Detail

What does a family day (or night) look like in your home?
I have 2 children, 7 and 10, and they just started school for the first time in the fall. So during the day while they are at school, I work. Once I pick them up, we come home and have snack, they play outside while I get dinner started, then we sit and do homework. Generally, we read together after that. Then it is dinner, baths and bed - the afternoons/evenings go by so quickly! Weekends are spent doing chores and running errands together on Saturday, followed by all 4 of us going rollerskating Sunday afternoon - our favorite family activity.

I love your diapers I have only ever seen the menagerie ones. But the dyed and embroidered ones are truly works of art not sure if I'd like baby pooping in it. I really like the alien dreamscape. I know i'm a geek.

It's hard to choose just one favorite. The diapers look beautiful. I'd have to say my favorites are all the hand died OBV ones. They look soft and comfy.

MY favourite from the HL gallery is the 'fairies at dawn' playscape. I would say the retro surf, but I own it and I thought I'd indulge some girliness for a change!
