Baby Shower Decor: Our Largest Block Order

Upon receiving a request for a baby block estimate a few weeks ago, I realized that this would be our largest block order to date. My customer was in need of blocks for a baby shower, more specifically, to serve as 10 centerpieces. After some thinking, I responded with a quote and an idea to […]

If it wasn’t for the urging of a friend, I may not have started an Etsy site in the first place. Now what came first, the baby or the block? Well, it depends. Some of my customers purchase a personalized, baby block set while anxiously awaiting for baby to arrive (as was the case when […]

I really can’t complain when it comes to my kids eating their fruits and veggies, but placing raw kale on their dinner plate can get a little old. Smoothies are a fun way to trick, I mean encourage your kids to consume raw, healthy, whole foods. I was sure to stock up on lots of […]

For my son’s 4th birthday, I tried to come up with a loose theme that would capture his interests. Lucas inspired me to keep up with my own art as I watched him spend HOURS drawing, painting and creating this past year. I swear, I have to keep the paper hidden as he will draw […]

One of the best things about carrying a line of nursery products is the opportunity to gift them family and friends. My mother always made it seem effortless, but she spent many hours crafting, knitting and sewing beautiful, one of a kind mementos. That must be why I jump at the chance to create for […]

To all the interior designers out there…much repsect. This project was so involved that I started to panic as Lucas’s due date approached. Not only did I fuss over every aspect of this room, but this very space was under construction just months prior. On the list: knocking down walls, patching up doorways and a […]

I’ve spent a good portion of this weekend thinking, brainstorming and soul searching. Not by chance, rather, in an attempt to prioritize some of the many projects I have going on at the moment. Mind you, all of this comes second to caring for my two beautiful babies. For the past month I’ve been contemplating […]

After going through some old clothes, I came across the costume I made for Lucas’s portrayal of “The Kid”. Suddenly, I was overwhelmed with so many sweet memories. I had intended to removed the patches and disassemble stitching so that Lucas could wear these corduroys at age five. At the time, age five seemed so […]

How do you put a big boy in a tiny space? You fill it with fabulous! As Parker’s due date was approaching, we were knee deep in a huge basement renovation. One day I was hanging wallpaper (7 months pregnant), the next I was painting walls, ceiling, you name it. While we were in the […]
