Still Summer


Westerly_Commons_22So beyond excited to finally be releasing a new group! It’s been far too long, I know! Our fun, new designs for the kiddos were captured just in time for back to school by my pal Jennie Corti–whom I’m so happy to have finally collaborated with! Can we talk about how beautiful this location is? Special thank you goes out to another SD pal Alexis of Fern & Feather for graciously opening up her home to us. It may be time to start thinking about getting new supplies, but if you ask us there’s plenty of time to keep playing outside and be silly! It’s still summer! Shop here for all the fun … Read More

Custom Wrapping Paper


Is there anything cuter than seeing your kids on wrapping paper? Such a fun and unique idea that the kids are sure to love too! Enter Deanna and Miriam–two moms and self-proclaimed “daydreamers who believe in playfulness, humor, and the element of surprise.” Like many of us, both Deanna and Miriam love to capture their loved ones in special moments and wanted to create an innovative new way of showcasing them. Thus, Stardust Prints, a custom wrapping paper company, was born. If you’re like me, you usually like to capture your kiddos on Instagram–which is just one of the three ways (your photo gallery and Facebook are the other options) you can simply upload your photos for the magic to start. You can even add your pet! Check out Stardust Prints website for more fun design options.
