New Personalized Plate Designs: Police Car, Farm Animals + Sea Animals

I recently added some new mealtime sets (including personalized plates, cups, and place mats) to the shop featuring a police car, farm animals (cow, horse, and chickens), and sea animals (whale, turtle, and fish).

I used a more vibrant color scheme for these than I normally do, but I think the colors fit nicely with the playful, smiling animals, and they’re especially great designs for toddlers and preschoolers.

The Great Outdoors… New Personalized Art Prints and Dishes

I just added some super cute birth announcement art prints to the shop. They can be customized with a baby’s name and up to 3 additional lines of text for things like birth date, time, weight, and length. So cute for decorating any nursery!

I love this design so much, I decided to use it on mealtime sets as well…

I’m calling this design Great Outdoors, and it’s available on plates, bowls, cups, and place mats.  I just love how these turned out!

S’mores Valentine’s Day Treats

I’m so happy with how my daughter’s Valentine’s Day treats turned out and how easy it was! After looking at Pinterest together for ideas, she wanted to make S’mores cookie bars, but then I remembered that Trader Joe’s has something called Smashing S’mores, and luckily she was just as excited about using those!

I made some personalized labels for her to put on cellophane bags, and we put two S’mores inside each bag. We had tried one plain before packaging them up, and then when we were done we tried microwaving them for 6 seconds like the package suggested… holy cow, that took it to a whole other level! So I made some labels for the back, too, to let everyone know to microwave them.

I’d already been thinking about offering treat bags with my Valentine’s Day gift labels next year, but now I’m excited about making some “themed” labels like these to go with specific treats. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
