Fabric Headbands by Chubby Baby Designs

We have found our new favorite summer accessory!

Amber is our Polka Dot Mom this week and the owner of Chubby Baby Designs. Lucky for us, she designs these adorable fabric headbands just for moms too!

We asked Amber, a work-at-home mom of four kids (2 girls and 2 boys), about her company name, "Chubby Baby Designs":

"My 3rd baby was born 9 weeks premature and was anything but chubby. Our son Logan amazed us all and God was good as he came home with us just 4 weeks later in very good health. In just a few short months, this little guy was CHUBBY!"

Amber uses Logan's sweet baby picture in her company logo. See her little guy at http://www.chubbybabydesigns.etsy.com/.

We knew Amber was a Polka Dot Mom when we saw this red polka dot fabric headband in her shop:

She says she has a slight addiction to fabrics (don't we all?!). Amber loves funky, retro prints and her shop is now filled with the cutest polka dot fabric headbands in some great new colors. Her headbands start with flexible plastic headbands surrounded in your choice of fabrics. She stitches the fabric perfectly and folds the ends to create a plush cushion that will not give your a "headband headache"! They are so comfortable and I love wearing mine with every outfit (yes, I am a customer too).

Many of Amber's fabrics are limited, so you know you are buying a unique product. Her headbands are going fast - especially her new fabrics. I'll see you in Amber's shop! This is a "must-have" for summer. See Amber's fabric headband designs here:


Handmade Gift Tags by Amy Elise Designs

Look at these amazing handmade gift tags and gift cards! Of course, made by a mom who loves polka dots, embellishments, beautiful papers and ribbons. We are proud to feature Amy of Amy Elise Designs this week as our crafty Polka Dot Mom. Amy is a mom to "two wild little boys!" She says between laughing with her family, she stays busy crafting handmade treasures and gifts with paper for family, friends and customers. Amy loves the art of handmade crafts, especially sending letters and correspondence. She says she loves her computer, but feels sending and receiving mail via the REAL mailbox is a very important thing. That's an added perk of her business, she makes beautiful cards and papers to send as a surprise to her own family and friends.

Amy has recently added small scrapbooks, mini books, wedding products and even journals to her design portfolio too. Her office has stacks and stacks of papers, cardstocks, books, embellishments, vintage and modern stamps, and a wide variety of pigment inks for stamping her creations. She welcomes custom orders!

Most of her tags are embellished with sparkling rhinestones. Sheer organza ribbon is tied at the top. Her tags are great additions to any gift package (with room on the back for your message) and fun to use in scrapbook pages. The standard gift tags measure 2 1/2" by 4" and arrive in your mailbox wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbon.

Just staring at Amy's product photos makes us so happy! She has truly created a unique line of handmade paper gifts (and we love her use of polka dots in nearly every design). Be sure to visit Amy's shop today and place your order for her high-quality cards, gift tags and gifts. The prices are amazing - each piece is handmade by Amy and truly a work of art.

Here are photos of just a few of our favorite designs by Amy:

Disco Dot Blankets by Serendipity Blankets

We spotted (literally!) this adorable baby security blanket in our favorite aqua and chocolate Michael Miller Disco Dots fabric on Etsy and were so happy to learn it is made by a wonderful MOM in business! Serendipity Blankets is a beautiful shop owned by Cassandra Norton, a mom of two living in Monterey, California. She is a Physical Therapist, so she knows how important touch, texture and stimulation are to baby's development. Her company creates handmade security blankets, travel blankets, pacifier clips, chenille bibs, and burp cloths. Cassandra only uses the finest materials including textural, soft and snuggly fabrics for her blankets designed specifically to stimulate and comfort your baby. Serendipity Blankets features polka dot ribbons on their pacifier clips, polka dot fabric bib and burp sets, and polka dot security blankets too.
Be sure to visit Serendipity Blankets for more beautiful products each created with Cassandra's serious attention to detail and desire to product baby gifts of the highest quality. She includes free polka dot tissue paper gift wrap (we love that) and a boutique gift tag with every order. Cassandra has a wholesale program for fellow business owners interested in selling her products too. She responds to questions very quickly and is a super mom to know (and we love her polka dot products).
