I'm extending my break from Jackaroos Boutique, because of an exciting new project in my life. I am coordinating New Orleans Baby Fest which will take place Saturday, October 2, 2010 at the Pontchartrain Center in Kenner, LA.

If you live in the New Orleans area, check out our website, fan us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter (@NOLAbabyfest).

Then mark your calendars for October 2nd to attend the biggest and best baby and family event of the year in the Greater New Orleans area!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS! (Still on Break)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you!

Currently CLOSED to New Orders

Jackaroos Boutique is on an extended break. The Jackaroos headquarters will be moving from Orlando to New Orleans in the next few weeks. Then we'll be setting up our home in time to welcome Baby #2 this Fall, so we may not take custom orders until the new year. We'll keep you posted on new developments as they happen - like a possible etsy shop for some of our already-made items and then an eventual reopen date.

ORDER DEADLINE - Friday, July 31st

I posted a notice a couple of weeks ago about my upcoming extended break. Now, I have an official deadline for accepting custom orders. It's next Friday, July 31st. Please place all orders by July 31 and I will ship them out within 7-14 days of your order. As a reminder, I may not take orders again until the new year due to a move and baby #2 arriving this Fall.

Thanks to everyone for being such great customers!

Upcoming Extended Break - ORDER NOW

If you are thinking about placing a Jackaroos order, please place it as soon as possible. Life is about to get a little...maybe a lot...crazy for us.

Jackaroos headquarters will be MOVING from Orlando to New Orleans in the next few weeks (August/September), so I won't be able to take any new custom orders during that time.

Then, I am due with BABY #2 in November, so I will need time to set up our new home before the baby arrives. I think my break will have to extend through my maternity leave.

I am still taking orders for the next few weeks, but once I go on break, I may not be open again for custom orders on my website until the end of the year. I'll update here and on my facebook page whenever I have a deadline for orders before my extended break. It'll probably be around AUGUST 1st.

I am also considering setting up an etsy shop that can remain open with some of my premade items during my break from custom orders, so I'll keep you posted on that.

It's Been A While...

My last update was in March and that was right about the time that I found out I was pregnant with baby #2 and the nausea and exhaustion set in.

I worked right through it, but didn't have time to update my blog, so now I'm playing catch up. Here's a little of what I've been up to. There's more to come over the next few days.

You can also check out my whole collection at JackaroosBoutique.com.

Sock Monkey Gift Set for a Girl

Our sock monkey fabric has a light blue background, but is neutral enough for boy or girl. I'd suggest a brown embroidery for a boy and a pink for a girl (shown here). The ribbon loops on the lovey coordinate too (pink and brown on this one for Melina; blue and brown ribbon loops for a boy).

Dick and Jane Lolli Dot Gift Set

I was so excited to create this gift set for my adorable new nephew and godchild, Walker. I already gave him the lovey when he was in utero, so now he has the personalized blanket and burp cloth and my sister-in-law has the diaper clutch to match. He's their second boy, so it's nice that he has something that he can claim as his own.

What a Hoot! Diaper Clutch

What a Hoot! Diaper Clutch - holds wipes case and 3 or 4 diapers

This fabric is neutral enough for the mom who doesn't know if she will have a boy or a girl. It can be used to store diapers or used in place of a purse to store your wallet, make-up, etc. in your diaper bag (especially if you like to change diaper bags often).
