She {hearts} Piccadilly Rose

Cute, unique, beautifully handmade hair accessories? Yes, please. Add in an upcycled, eco-friendly twist? I present to you: Piccadilly Rose.

Piccadilly Rose is an adorable shop featuring handmade hair accessories made from upcycled/recycled fabric, buttons, and materials. Lara, the lovely lady behind the adorableness (who happens to be a mama of four and a pretty sweet person in real life- trust me, I know!), not only makes items for the Piccadilly Rose shop but also more often makes custom hairpieces for brides or simply someone looking for a special, one of a kind hairpiece or clip. These are also the perfect hair accessories for little girls!

I was fortunate enough to attend Piccadilly Rose‘s launch party a few months ago and was able to see and try on many unique pieces. I was so impressed by the quality of the pieces and wanted to scoop them all up and take them home! I couldn’t go home without one of the gorgeous headbands, so I picked the one in the following photo. My three year old daughter was also delighted by the headband, and it easily fits her little head, too! My friends are also rocking PR headbands!

She {hearts} ArtWark Handmade Jewelry

I love meaningful jewelry, especially jewelry that reflects my children. I fell in love with ArtWark‘s gorgeous, handmade jewelry (with a personal touch) the instant I came across it.

Sweet Sarah, the designer behind ArtWark‘s lovely collections, was so kind to make me a custom “Mother’s Love” necklace. ArtWark is one of our Baby Boom Virtual Baby Shower (more info coming soon!) sponsors, but despite it officially starting June 1, I wanted to be sure to feature ArtWark before Mother’s Day. These beautiful, customizable, handmade pieces are THE perfect (and affordable!)gift for any mother, grandmother, or mother-to-be.


ArtWark’s gorgeous “Mother’s Love” necklace is fully customizable.  It’s available in silver, gold, and antiqued finishes, with turquoise beads, rice pearls, or a single Swarovski pearl nestled in the center of the nest.  Sarah made me a custom necklace with three turquoise beads (“eggs” in this mama bird’s nest) to represent my kids- including the new baby in my belly.  I was pleasantly surprised how delicate and dainty this necklace is.  I love the look and the meaning behind this piece of jewelry and I will treasure it forever.

Be sure to check out the rest of ArtWark‘s collection.  Sarah is willing to custom-make every piece to fit your preferences.  I also love the “Generations” necklace, perfect for a grandmother and customizable with birth stones and a hand-stamped initial charm.  Sarah’s jewelry is also ideal for a bride/bridesmaids or any other special occasion.

{heart} It

ArtWark‘s gorgeous, meaningful, handmade jewelry is perfect for mamas, mamas-to-be, or any other special woman.  Not only is every piece customizable, but Sarah is a beautiful soul and a pleasure to work with.  She definitely puts a little bit of her heart into each piece she creates.

She {hearts} Moxy Paperie & Katlem Designs


In a word of everything done via the internet, I still try to find every reason to send snail mail. Whether it be a thank you note, birthday card, or invitations, I’m all about stationary! I first found Katlem Designs when I was planning my daughter’s 1st birthday. I knew I wanted a goldfish theme party and I was determined to design the majority of stuff myself. After lots of searching I finally found a goldfish image that I wanted to use. With that image I designed her birthday invitations and some thank you cards. I also wanted to print some cupcake toppers and return address labels, but I’d never played around with printing on circle lables. The actual goldfish image I was using was in the shape of a circle too, so I began looking for someone who could help me out. Through the wonderful world of etsy, I ran across Moxy Paperie, ran by the talented Kate Lemish, and she helped me pull of the rest of the finishing touches for Grace’s first birthday! Since then Kate has also printed lots of return address lables for me, from a basic demask to ones with seahorses and others that I’ve given as gifts!

While running Moxy Paperie, which focuses on the sale of labels for all occasions, and taking care of a 6 month old, Kate also has another business called Katlem Designs. Katlem Designs focuses on cards, invitations, etc. As I was browsing some of her recent work, I spotted some crab invites and some anchor invitations, that are so screaming my name! They are too adorable and I think I need to plan some sort of event, just so I can use them! :)

{heart} It

Moxy Paperie provides top quality labels for many occasions. Great for return address labels but they can also be used for wedding favor labels, wedding address labels, and many other uses.  She also takes on custom orders.
Katlem Design is reserved for cards, announcements, invitations, and wedding related items. You can also check out the Katlem Design Blog.

Kate is so kindly giving one winner a set of 15 fold over cards (5 1/2 x 4 1/8) with white envelopes from Katlem Designs and a set (1 sheet of 30) of matching 1.5″ round labels from Moxy Paperie. You can choose your own design from Moxy Paperie labels and Katlem Designs will do notecards to match!

She {hearts} Putapuredukes

Who doesn’t {heart} a little handmade goodness?!

Keight, the talent behind Putapuredukes, is a momma of two gorgeous kiddos and creates so many pretty/fun/useful accessories for baby and momma (or any woman, really!) for her lovely little shop.  Favorites?  I can’t pick just one.  Currently loving her flat iron covers, unique cuffs, camera strap covers, and infinity scarves.  Oh, and the boppy covers… somebody stop me!  Most items are customizable, and some even personalized (with a name, etc).  Keight has a beautiful selection of fabrics to choose from, too.

A few months ago, I ordered one of Keight’s jewelry rolls to bring some order to my wayward traveling-with-jewelry ways.  I picked the fabric (LOVE) and Keight added the coordinating zipper and ribbon.  This little bag has been a lifesaver!  Not only is it so pretty to look at and extremely well made, but I am able to keep my rings, earrings, and necklaces sorted and safe rather than ending up with all my jewelry in one big tangled pile.


{heart} It

Check out all of Keight’s lovely handmade items in her shop, and while you’re at it, check out her blog, too.  She’s a funny, tell-it-like-it-is lady.  It doesn’t take much to love her.

She {hearts} C and Me Designs

I’ve been on the hunt for pretty prints for my daughter’s new room for awhile.  I love meaningful, lovely artwork with a touch of whimsy.  I have found the perfect combination of that description in the prints created by C and Me Designs.

Erin, the artist behind C and Me Designs, has designed a beautiful line of printable wall art and invitations, and is open to custom requests of any kind.  Her chevron invitations are gorgeous and I love her custom silhouette art.  How classy and timeless are her custom birth announcements?  I love that all of her items are printable, so I can print them professionally or simply on my home printer.

After MUCH deliberation, I ordered three printable wall art pieces from Erin’s shop:


So much loveliness!  I requested that Erin change up the colors a bit, incorporating more coral, teal, and grey tones (to coordinate with the room), and she quickly emailed me these:


Perfect!  I printed them out on cardstock, and plan on framing them and hanging them in my daughter’s room.  Easy peasy!  They look so great, even being printed from home.  Now to decide on a paint color for my little Miss’s room… let the deliberation begin again!

{heart} It

Whether you are looking for sweet wall art, custom invitations or announcements, Erin from C and Me Designs is the girl to turn to.  She is happy to customize her printable art and invitations and will work with you to produce just what you are looking for.

She {hearts} Sassy Classy Cupcakes

Sassy Classy logo

This past weekend was my twins’ 2nd birthday barnyard bash! In years past, I have always made a birthday cake, but this year decided to only offer cupcakes… and it was a huge success! Sassy Classy Cupcakes made the most adorable farm animal fondant toppers for me, and all I did was plop them down on top of the frosted cupcakes.  The kids adored them and I loved how professional looking– yet easy– they were!

IMG_6347  IMG_6348  IMG_6345  

In our package of a dozen, we had 2 pigs, 2 horses, 2 cows, 2 chickens, and 2 sheep. I simply dyed the frosting various colors to match the fondant toppers, and then set the animal face on top! But these would have even looked adorable on just plain white cupcakes! They were so cute!

Samuel chose the horse cupcake, while Samantha wanted the pink piggie cupcake.  And, needless to say, they THOROUGHLY enjoyed them at their party!!!
