The day is finally here! You’ve probably seen the previews the new online gift shop for a while now. You can still perfuse the free printables and recipes, but there is something great about creating something that is tangible…something you can touch, wear, drink out of (or eat out of in the case of my Cake Mugs)! These are some seriously Fun Gifts for Foodies and Kids!
I don’t think it’s any surprise that everything I do on my blog is inspired by love of food and my children (not necessarily in that order). I spent a week in July redecorating my daughter’s Princess room and these Grunge Fairy Tale graphic tees are a play off of that theme. I couldn’t let my daughter have all the fun, so I created two designs for my boys. You can order onesies and kids tees in four different designs (and they’re American Apparel shirts, so they are so comfy and durable!)
My children are used to being models…can you tell? Okay, they might be a little tired of having their pictures taken…the little one isn’t so jaded, yet.
I get caught up in the everyday craziness and I’m so glad I took these pics. They’re in my favorite (and most complete) room in the house, with the kids wearing matching stylish tees…and they’re having fun. I thought it would just be a quick photo shoot, but it ended up being so fun and I will cherish these pictures forever!
I asked my business friends this week (actually, they’re real life friends, too) what they thought of when they looked at my instagram account and one friend said I looked like “Super Mom.” Totally not what I was going for. I didn’t want to seem like what I was doing was unattainable because being a mom is SO HARD…seriously, ridiculously hard. That’s why I created these with a grunge effect…because the fairy tale ending isn’t real. It can be tough and you’ll get a lot of bruises trying to reach your goal…and your “armor” will get muddy. But I want my kids to dream and if that means believing in fairy tales for now, that works for me! I know, very deep and symbolic of me 😉
My other passion is food. I freaking LOVE food! I try new recipes all the time. I seriously tried 10 mug cake recipes before I found the perfect one and I’ll be sharing variations of those recipes over the next few weeks! Also, these mugs make the perfect gift and you can’t have a gift without a gift tag…so look for some more FREE Printables, too!
These quotes were hand lettered by me, then printed on ceramic mugs and quotes (and soon Adult Tees!) for my Foodie Line.
