About Bigfoot's Girlfriend

Hi! I'm Bigfoot's Girlfriend. The items you see were design and made by me. My designs are inspired by nature and music. I strive to recycle clothing and fabrics as well as hemp, bamboo and organic textiles. We enjoy our weekend adventures traveling where the music takes us. I collect items from our trips to recycle into goods for you! In my shop, you will find natural gemstone jewelry and sewn accessories. I look forward to the long evenings hibernating in the studio and can't wait to share my creations with you!

Dreamcatcher

I will share more baby stuff, because well being a new mom is exciting! My life changed and I love it. I will still be making time to craft, blog, sew, and inspire!

Today, I am showcasing an upcycled vest that will be listed in my Etsy shop soon. This is one of my favorite applique designs and will be a staple in my clothing designs!

1 month of Motherhood

Amazing how fast motherly instincts kick in. I will admit I was so nervous at first! The c-section is an awful pain that I thought would never go away. I hated not being able to drive and carrying her around. I could hardly get off the couch, let alone jump up when she started crying. The first month was hard in so many ways, but the bonding that took place was absolutly incredible! One the pain subsided, things became normal, and wonderful! The first smiles, bath, hug, nap snuggles… Pure baby bliss! How I love this peanut with all my heart!

Enjoy some my favorite pictures from month 1!

Baby girl is here

Baby girl is here

Wow, how time has flown by. With spring approaching (after a miserable Illinois winter), inspiration is in the air! I am working on new designs and getting ready to order inventory!

I would like to first say thank you all for your support and well wishes. Baby Jillian arrived on a snowy February 4th weighing 5 pounds and 18.5″. I am so in love! She has been the best baby!

I am back to work and getting back to a routine. Took a lot longer to recover after having her via c-section. I hope to be back to my self a little more this summer!

Enjoy a few pictures from her first month!

Maternity Photo Sesh

“A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bankroll smaller, home happier, clothes shabbier, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for.” -Unknown

Looking forward to the future is an understatement! I cannot wait to meet Jillian! To see her face, little fingers and toes, how much hair she has! Due in less than a week, but my guess is I’ll go overdue! 🙂 Which I’ve accepted and am okay with since my dear boyfriend will also be moving us into an apartment that’s avaliable on my due date! Intense times!

Love love how these pictures turned out!

“Every man has a different idea of what’s beautiful, and it’s best to take the gesture, the shadow of the branch, and let the mind create the tree.” -William Faulkner

How could I leave out these bracelets from the winter jewelry posts!
