Sending holiday cards is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. I seriously love stuffing + licking + addressing + whole works…it just gets me all excited for the holidays! After school my kids will run to the mailbox and can’t wait to see all holiday cards start showing up in the mail. I love to display them on the wall in my kitchen and I do save them each year + turn them into a little book to look back on all the fun years of cards we have received.
Minted is my absolute favorite place to shop for holiday cards!! Their cards are just simply amazing…they have the most gorgeous selection of modern and tasteful cards, every detail down to the weight of the paper and the envelope insert is perfect, and they’ll even address your cards for you (for FREE) so they’re ready to send out the moment they arrive!
I loved picking out our Christmas cards this year, and picking out all the extra details like return address labels and more. Also, I was in shock when my cards arrived 4 days after I placed my order online!!! Now that is just madness. Right now Minted is offering Free Two Day Shipping + Free Addressing. Here are just a few of my favorite cards.
This was one of my favorite baby lines I have designed!! All the golds, black and turquoises were just to die for. I designed and patterned the leggings and dresses by hand…I wanted the fit to be perfect. With help of an old high school friend I was able to find my amazing printer in LA who did a fabulous job with the gold foiled fabric.
Chelsy with B Couture Photography was the photographer at this shoot. Her work is amazing! Styling + doing hair + directing 14 little ones was kinda crazy on my part, but as you can see we got some amazing images that we are proud of.
We were absolutely thrilled to be included in Emily Jackson’s nursery reveal over on her blog Ivory Lane. Her cute baby boy, Cannon, is sporting our Long Sleeve Romper and baby hat! We were able to work with several other amazing companies as the nursery was designed by Oilo and Gatehouse. Take a peek into her stunning nursery below. Emily and all the sponsors involved have come together to participate in a NURSERY GIVEAWAY for a deserving family!

Today we are featuring this beautifully designed nursery by our interior design friends Nicole and Becki of Owens + Davis design. Talk about some serious talent! One of the biggest reasons we love this nursery design and its perfect details is because it is non specific and totally gender neutral which is what we typically aim for with our baby designs! We love the cozy wood elements and well as the subtle gold accents and the family history photos that make it personal and meaningful. This dreamy white nursery is perfection. All that is missing is a cute newborn wrapped in one of our swaddle blankets and wearing one of our new rompers! You can find the original post here over on their blog with details and sources.

Thank you for following along on our Baby Essentials series! We have loved working with all of these companies that provide amazing products for moms and babies! Having babies requires so much gear, it’s important to make sure you know where to find what you really need and what will make your life easier. Now that our series as come to an end, we are THRILLED that we can give these products away to our friend and readers here!
Of course we think our products over at STAY+Co are baby essentials, that is the whole reason we make them! We are passionate about our babies and kiddos and are always trying to improve upon the next thing. We chose to switch our blankets to an organic modal or an organic cotton. Yes, it is a bit pricier on our end, but we couldn’t resist the super soft touch and stretch that makes them perfect for swaddling and becoming the blanket that your little one can’t help but carry everywhere they go. We also wanted to add the binding to the edges for obvious esthetic reasons – we love the contrast and added touch of cuteness – and also for durability to outlast your babe. We wish you could reach through this computer screen and just touch that blanket!
We are striving to create a brand that is dependable and provides the staples for you and your family. We take great care in selecting our fabrics and would never do anything that we wouldn’t put on our own kiddos. When it comes to our STAY LITTLE baby line, our goal is to stay neutral while adding in a punch here and there. We are so excited for the direction that STAY + Co. is headed. Kailee and I are constantly trying new things with our new brand and are finally starting to see how to narrow it in and start focusing on what we are passionate about. That is the thing with creative minds, we are always wanting to try this or try that, so it is hard to just pinpoint one thing we want to do. But we are getting there and we want to thank you for being patient with us throughout this growing process.
As moms of 3 kids each, we love babies and little people, they are our world! We hope to share our passion with you so that together we can be the moms that we want to be. We are here for you, in this community and love our customers! WE ARE SO EXCITED TO BE GIVING AWAY A BLANKET + HAT SET for our baby essential series that is now coming to a close. Which one is your favorite, which one would you choose? xoxo
Tubby Todd is a new company that has quickly become one of our favorites! The older I get and the more kids I have, the more I am wanting all natural and organic products for my littles. I am realizing how harmful unnatural chemicals can be for their overall health. I love that Tubby Todd bath soap is 100% natural and gets its amazing fragrance from plant based scents. Let me tell ya, it smells divine! One of my favorite things about this brand is that they have a mascot -a moose named Todd. So fun and creative! Tubby Todd is an essential for babies and toddlers when it comes to bathing. Right now you can get free shipping if you purchase two or more bottles.
Take the thinking out of decorating your nursery with Oilo! We absolutely LOVE their fresh, clean esthetic. We also love that a lot of their bedding collections are gender neutral and super classic. They offer full baby bedding sets as well as carseat covers, changing pads covers, bassinets, gliders and so much more! Oilo is all over the place making celebrity nurseries beautiful – check out their site and blog to see how others have styled their fabulous products and designs. Oilo also has fantastic bedding for us moms, I personally love the Zara Collection and the Mosi sheets.
I know we have talked about our favorite Birdling Bags before, but they are definitely a must have when talking about baby essentials! They just recently released their overnight bags and they are THE PERFECT SIZE! It could double as a diaper bag as well as a travel bag and has the necessary compartments for staying organized and on top of your mom game, ha! I am obsessing over olive these days, so I was thrilled to get one. We think their color options are perfect – they seem to match our own color theme we have going on over in the shop. We can’t say enough about these well designed and not to mention TOP QUALITY.
