In the month of August I made, packaged, and shipped 269 items. Most of which were placemats and napkins for back-to-school!
I’ve been seeing pictures of our napkins in lunch boxes going to school (and coming back–yay)!
Placemats heading to Montessori classrooms!
Back-to-school has been SO fun on the business end and on the personal side too!
My oldest starts pre-K at the elementary school on Tuesday and my husband and I were talking about making her first school lunch tomorrow. You know there will be a pen&thimble cloth napkin tucked in her bento box! A special one to make her smile and let her know I am thinking of her. (It’s this one!) She was eyeing it during our photoshoot and she loves dress-up and Halloween! I will be listening for her squeal at lunchtime … I’ll just be a few farm fields down the road!
What napkin print would make your little one smile at lunchtime? Tell me in the comments below, on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram! I’ll pick some of your suggestions to add to the shop next! The more far-out, the better!
I hear you.You want sets! It took a number of custom orders for me to realize it, but I get it now! So in the past week, I’ve started adding placemat and napkin sets to the shop. And I’m especially excited about these first offerings because they promise to bring whimsical tales to your next snack or meal!
When you sit down for lunch, why not tell a tale of a couple of bears who went camping or a girl who took a basket to her grandma’s house and met a wolf on the way… These aren’t just placemat sets; they’re stories to share, lessons to learn, and imaginations ignited. Find your little bear cub or brave traveller a story set HERE.
And as always, these placemats and cloth napkins are easy to care for and made with love and care.
My business is based on my dual desires to 1) add cheer to childhood and 2) ease the frustrations of parenthood. Children love bright colors and whimsical items that are *theirs.* Parents love baby and kid goods that are thoughtful, easy to care for, and made to last. I strive to offer both in every fabric print I pull, every design I create, and every offering in my shop.
I want to give you more of what you want! What other sets would you like to see? Visit my shop HERE and let me know what YOU want! I was thinking of combining crowns and necklaces for birthday gifts, coordinating bibs and teething toys. What would you pair with a feeding bib — a napkin or a placemat or something else? Let me know in the comments below or on my Facebook page.
It’s my favorite time of the year! Farm Shares! Fresh local produce!
Food just feels more special when we pick it up at the farm. We have come to know the farmers at Brookfield Farm who have grown our food from greenhouse seeds to soil, through rainy days and hot patches. And each delicious bite reminds me of their work and what a gift this food is.
What are your favorite summer recipes? I let our share dictate the dinner plan last week…
