Perfectly Custom - Cotton Cupcake Shoppe

Cotton Cupcake Photos9-1


A few months before the birth of my 3rd baby boy Owen, I got an email from my friend Amber. She asked me if I would like a custom baby hat for the new baby... at that time she had no idea what his name was :) nor did anyone else.

I was immediately tickled she'd ask and willingly gave up the "secret name" so that I would have this hat to use in the hospital when my baby was born.

I thought it would be really cool to announce his name with a photograph of him wearing the hat.

I got so many compliments on his hat in the hospital. It really was a special item to have.
