Hi! A few weeks ago, one of my good friends had her first baby (a little boy). Such an exciting time! I owe this new little guy a gift and since his mom is so super cool, stylish, artsy, funky, non-traditional and an outside-the-box kinda thinker, I feel like it needs to be something slightly different. So, I've been on the hunt for some cute art that I can give him for his new digs/nursery...via etsy of course!
No. 1: You're Getting Very Sleepy letterpress print from Sycamore Street Press (part of a four poster series called "Subliminal Baby")
No. 2: Good Night Sleep Tight Hand-printed Letterpress Poster by Roll & Tumble Press
No. 3: Animal Alphabet Poster by Leo Little Lion
No. 4: King Elephant Custom Baby Print by Leo Little Lion
No. 5: Creatures A-Z Alphabet screen print by Bold & Noble
Any favorites? I'm trying not to go with something too "themey" and just looking back at these right now I think the custom elephant illustration is even a little too cutesy (there are elephants on his crib sheets). I know there are probably a ton of other cool posters/prints, etc. out there in etsy land that I could get him, but I seriously searched for what feels like forever and these are the only things that stood out to me. (Holly, where's that etsy tips and tricks post?! Lol! I think I need help with my search words!!) Have any of you guys come across any great etsy art lately that you love that might lead me to something better for little Henry? Thanks!
I probably won't be around much next week...Paul has the week off from work, so its our family vacation together! Can't wait. We aren't technically going anywhere...except down the Cape for a few days to hit up the beach. And we want to take Maura into Boston for a day and to the Thomas the Tank special event at Edaville Railroad (this chic is a tomboy!). She's never been to a parade, so I'm hoping we can take her to one on July 4th without having her run into the street and try to climb up on a float or steal somebody's trombone. (Any toddler parade tips?) Have a great weekend and July 4th holiday, everybody!!!
