The Ultimate Children's Design Resource


Three Cheers for the Etsy Moms!

Since we are approaching Mother’s Day, my favorite holiday, I wanted to give a shout out to all the creative and fabulous mothers who make beautifully fantastic items for our children.  There is no better place than Etsy to find such talent.  Here are some of my favorite Etsy finds, made by wonderful women who are also moms.

Denise Winters of Magical Whimsy creates beautiful paper mobiles and decor.  Based out of San Diego, she creates each mobile by hand with amazing attention to detail and is able to customize to match your decor.  The look of her items are elegant and unique and are perfect for over a crib or changing table.

Jesi Josten started Hip Violet so she could stay at home with her daughter.  She hand sews each of these adorable bibs out of her own pattern and loves making one-of-a kind pieces. They are over sized to protect baby’s clothes and simply adorable.  A great and original gift for the hip mom.

Sarah Jane Studios is run by Sarah Jane herself.  A Utah mother of three with a passion for drawing the world around her.  Being a mommy she writes “her children are her world.”  Hence these whimsical drawings of children and all things sweet and youthful.  I bought these for my store and framed them in simple white frames and they look gorgeous.

Deborah, of Candice and Katie’s Art, paints gorgeous hand painted letters and barrette holders out of her home in South Carolina.  A mother of three children, Deborah’s dream is “to continue to make happy colorful items for children since they are all precious gifts given to us to cherish everyday.”  I  also have Deborah’s letters in my son’s nursery and in my stores.  They are one of my favorite items.

If you know of any great moms making special items for children on Etsy comment and let us know who they are.

    I can’t believe Candice and Katie’s Art letters are handpainted. They are so beautiful and cute! I also love the art from Sarah Jane Studios. They look so prettily vintage!

    This shop makes the cutest little clips to attach a pacifier to so that the baby cant drop it on the ground. They’re made from non-toxic wooden beads- so adorable! They can also be personalized with the baby’s name or nickname on it. Check them out!
