Custom Order

Last week I received a request to match a new baby's nursery bedding. As soon a I saw the bedding I knew it was going to turn out adorable! I used the picture to match the colors perfectly. I loved doing this design! Creating something to match a specific room is so much fun. I hope the new Mommy and baby enjoy their gift :) Thank you Kara!

New Boy Print

This weekend I took some time out to design a new print. Everything I come up with seems to be pink! The blue and red are very refreshing! I think it turned out so sweet! Let me know what you think :)
Business is has been good. I've been getting featured on many blogs lately! I also am working with a few web boutiques to put my line in their shop. I have already been added to My Mama Bear. The owner, Amanda, has been so helpful and the line looks amazing! I'm really excited and hope it becomes a success!

New Design

I have been trying to find the time to create some new design for my shop. This a boy version of my Princess design. It is for a little Prince! I think it is too cute! I've noticed most of my prints are for girls. I guess that's because I have 2 girls :) I'm trying to come up with some more "boy" ideas. I'm thinking trucks, airplanes, sports. Hopefully I will be able to dedicate more time to the boy babies out there! YYYYYY

I have been focusing a lot of my time on promotion recently. Everyday I try to send out 10-20 emails. I have been asking other blogs to feature me. I figure it can't hurt to ask. Well~ ask and you shall receive. This has been great! Everyone is so supportive and very nice. I have been featured on 3 blogs and have 3 others that will be up in about a week. I will be doing a giveaway on Girl Indie soon! I am giving away a Personalized framed 5x7 print. I am really excited to see what response I get! If it is successful I will definitely be doing more :)
These are my beautiful girls! They have been so patient with me while I have been working on my shop. It is so hard to juggle everything sometimes. I suffer from Mommy guilt a lot. My older daughter is SO supportive. When ever I tell her I sold something, she gives me a big hug and tells me how proud of me she is. Thank you to my girls for being my everything ;)

Notecards with matching Stickers
I just received an order for these adorable notecards. I LOVE this design. It is simple, yet has small details. The order I am doing is for this design, but in yellow. It turned out so pretty. They look so fresh and feel like spring! The custom stickers add so much to a card. It is a small detail that everyone will take notice of.

Getting My Name out

I have been working on advertising this weekend. I have contacted people to feature me on their blogs. That went great! I was featured on Boutique Mom! A few other things are in the works. I might be doing a giveaway on Girl Indie in May. I also have contacted some website shops to see if they are interested in carrying my things. I put up a few fliers in my hometown. I'm just gonna keep at it. I know it will happen soon :)

New Frames
I just came across some new frames this week! They are really heavy and a great quality. They are white with sanded edges to give them a country look. They also have two mattes that give the picture added detail. I bought 4 different types. There are 2 and 3 print frames ( the ones above). I bought another one that has a 5x7 print and 2 4x4 prints. This one stands on a broad base. It is adorable. The last frame I bought has a 5x7 print and is a sea foam green. I put a "springy" print in it. The light green and flowers look SO cute together. I was only able to get 1 of each, so when they are gone I don't know if I will be able to restock them.

I love the look of more than 1 print in a frame. It allows more space for designs and personalized information. I hope you like them!
