This morning I dropped my son off for his first day of Montessori school, and I think we were both pretty excited. He had gone to daycare previously and liked that too, but we thought he might be ready to try something else out. So I’m not the handiest of Mom’s….yesterday he wanted his tractor to pull another car so I grabbed a roll of scotch tape to stick the car to the tractor. It wasn’t pretty, but it worked. I think I’d describe my sewing skills similarly. I ordered a large number of labels with my son’s name on them online, and when it came to sewing them into all of his gear for school, it wasn’t pretty. I used a travel sewing kit (it’s all I had!) and my stitching skills were so bad that I tried to find obscure places to place the labels. So I’m not Martha Stewart exactly, but I do try to put in a bit of effort.
Next time I think I should save the sewing for someone else. I refuse to ask my Mom as technically I am one of those too, so I think I might hit up this new online store I’ve discovered called You Name It Baby!.
Yes there is an exclamation mark as part of their name (it’s hard to tell I’m sure because I use a lot of them in my writing! See?), and they will literally personalize anything in their store.
The store was created in 2005 by two women who were new mothers who had a hard time finding places who did personalizing for their children’s items.
They focus on baby, toddler and kid products, but you can find all sorts other products on their website as well for adults.
They offer the option of colour matching if you have a swatch you can send them, and they offer free gift wrapping and delivery to the recipients address (without including the actual receipt).
I really like all of the camo gear they have. There are some great style options, and their prices are great as well.
The Pint of PJs Sweet Dreams Sleep Set is my favourite item on the website. It includes a cute ice cream tub with a matching onesie and a hat that has sprinkles and a cherry on top! So adorable.
These Personalizable Sports Pillows are pretty awesome too!
They ship to the US and Canada, and their website has a huge selection so give yourself some time to browse through their online shop!
You can visit them at www.younameitbaby.com.
