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!

Chevrons

The chevron pattern is another design trend that’s on the decline, but certainly not going away. Whether it’s a single color with white or a multitude of colors, it’s a fun, cheerful pattern that works on just about anything.

Summer Camp Essentials – What to Pack for your Child

Last summer was the first time I sent my son to a sleep away summer camp. The camp provided a basic list of what to bring (clothes, shoes, sunscreen, towels, etc.), but what I found super helpful was a list of extras that a friend shared with me. She had been sending her son to a sleepover sports camp for years, and she recommended all kinds of things that I wouldn’t have thought of:

  • flashlight & backup batteries
  • desktop fan
  • extension cord & power strip
  • shower shoes
  • Frogg Toggs Cooling Towel
  • drawstring-type backpack
  • alarm clock
  • laundry bag
  • Benadryl tube

Of course, my recommendation is to put some Sarah & Abraham waterproof name labels on everything you can and send along the extras with your child (they can put them on disposable water bottles and other items that they receive while at camp).

My daughter isn’t quite ready for a sleepover summer camp yet, but when she is, we’ll know just what to pack for her.
