Mix & Match Personalized Mealtime Sets

I’ve noticed that several customers recently have ordered one or two firetruck mealtime items along with one or two firefighter items. This is such a cute combo!

If you’d like to order a combination of plates, bowls, cups and place mats for the same child but in different designs, please feel free to order the items individually and remind me in the Additional Comments section during checkout or via email after placing your order to apply the mealtime set pricing to the items that have the same name.  I’ll adjust the total price to reflect mealtime set pricing (ex. plate + bowl: $42; plate, bowl & place mat: $55; plate, bowl, cup, place mat: $67).

The same principle applies to other designs when they’re ordered for the same child, for example, a unicorn plate and a fairy castle place mat, both with the name, “Charlotte”.

Kids + Summertime = Time for More… Chores!

When most people think of kids and summertime, they probably think of things like playing outside, riding bikes, going to the pool, and summer camps.

Those things are great, but in our family we’ve always found that summertime is a great time to ramp up our kids’ responsibilities. During the school year they’re so busy with homework and after school activities that it doesn’t leave much time for helping out around the house.

In the summer we give them additional chores and require them to spend a certain amount of time each day reading and working on new hobbies (they still have plenty of free time!)

If you’re thinking about establishing some new routines and starting some new chores this summer, it’s a great time to order customized chore charts for your kids!

Need some ideas for what chores to assign to your children? Check out this list of suggestions we put together.

New Designs! Cats & Dogs

I don’t know what took me so long to add some cute dog designs and cat designs to the shop, but I finally did, and I think your little ones are going to love them!

Here are some of our girly designs featuring a cute puppy dog:

And here are some of the mealtime items we created for little boys:

I’m a dog person (although I do love kittens!). My sister, Kim, is a cat person, and she insisted we offer some cat designs, too…

All of these new designs are available on our mealtime items (plates, bowls, cups, and place mats). We’re also offering a dog design on our chore charts, puzzles, and name labels. These items make great personalized gifts for kids of all ages – babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers and school-age children.

I love how everything turned out, and I hope you do, too!
