Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy...Paper Cape!

A few months back I came across a fabulous little brand named Paper Cape. Their jammies stole my heart, but as I poked through their website I fell in love on every corner. I am a visual person - I love touching and feeling fabrics. I have been doing it for so long that it has become so much a part of who I am. There are those few times, however, when I am online shopping (personally or for Bitsy) when I know (without being able to touch a product) that it is just the right quality fabric and beautifully crafted. Visiting Paper Cape’s website was one of those times. They’ve generously offered Bitsy’s readers a 20% discount so keep reading to learn more…

Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy...PETIT PEONY!

We’ve been following Petit Peony for a while and always love their creations. Every season we feel like they move the bar higher - on cuteness, on quality and on common sense clothing for children. PP reminds us of clothing our moms used to put us in. Clothing that will last in bins for generations to come. Silhouettes, fabrics and patterns we will never regret and that can transition from a family photo shoot to a playground. Well, their spring/summer 2019 collection is definitely one worth sharing, so if you haven’t peaked at it yet now is your chance….

Namaste + Little Yogis

We recently came across a show on the Amazon Prime app called Cosmic Kids Yoga. Our girls are obsessed with it. Like, ask to do yoga before breakfast obsessed. So since they’ve been consistent with this show and really enjoy doing yoga together along with Jaime, the host, we decided to gift them their own yoga mats. Lucy is obsessed with owls and Greer loves anything with birds, so we chose these mats for them…

1st Birthday Paintings

We struggle with finding the right, cool art for our home that not only goes with our aesthetic/decor, but has meaning and isn’t $1M! Finding something we actually WANT to look at all the time that makes us happy for any particular reason. In our old house we were building our collection as we started to build our family so naturally we had a lot of walls to fill.

Art Cart Organization!

Things were getting out of hand. Every time my girls wanted to color (not even take on a big art project) I was getting stressed. There was no system. And the clean up would be too much for us all. I already had the great coloring mat idea (you can find that here), but I needed a place for that to live along with all of their markers and other mediums. I was stressed, they were stressed and the worst part was that my kids didn’t have their creative outlet when they were home.

La Coqueta Sale!

A sale from one of our most favorite brands - La Coqueta! Yes, please. Lucy and Greer wear a ton of La Coqueta for many reasons. The first reason being that the clothing is made SO well. It is true craftsmanship - something that we don’t see much of in these times. The other reason is that their styles are spot on - classic and easy to tailor to your own every day (or even special occasion) vibe.

Bitsy Favorite for the Itsy...PEPPER KIDS!

Happy 2019!! We thought we’d start the New Year off with a stunner. PEPPER KIDS is a brand we mamas want to be wearing ourselves. Bitsy feels like we hit the jackpot by discovering them. Not only does PEPPER KIDS offer the cutest in children’s fashion (classic with a modern twist), but they also have an insanely reasonable price point that seriously cannot be beat. It is the perfect scenario for children’s fashion - dressing them as you wish without paying too much. PEPPER’S pieces adapt into many different looks - play clothes for school, dress clothes for special occasions and special activities and everyday rascality.

Bitsy's Favorite Gifts from Christmas!

We were really picky with what we gave the girls this year for Christmas. After a year of purging, cleaning and renovating we felt that less really does mean more so we stuck to our guns and paired down their lists. Here is what Lucy + Greer told us are their favorite gifts from Christmas:

Easy Gingerbread Houses

One of my most favorite memories from growing up is making Gingerbread Houses. I never understood why my mom never made them for us to decorate. Back then there weren’t kits available so making a Gingerbread House was a big commitment. So now that I’m a mom that has been through 7 holiday seasons - learning the chaos, lists, stress - I completely get why my mom never had a chance to Gingerbread House with us! I always decorated them in Brownie meetings or at a friends December birthday party so really there was no need.

Fast forward to now - I was bound and determined to find a way to do these with my girls without allowing them to create too much stress. While searching for easy DIY Gingerbread Houses I came across the idea to use Graham Crackers - genius! So with those as my base, I have slowly figured out a system over the past few years. After executing again this past weekend I think it really works! I’ve broken it down for you below with all of my resources.

Santa Writes Back Kit

‘Tis the Season! What we love most about the holiday season is the little sprinklings throughout - baking gingerbread cookies and houses, decorating the tree, Elf on the Shelf shannagins, our girls decorating their mini trees for their rooms. We have a soft spot for a hand-written, snail-mailed letter as we shared in our Snail Mail post last March. So it is only fitting that we share this great little “Santa Writes Back Kit” creation by none other than Mr. Boddington’s Studio. There is still time (up until Dec. 15th!) to participate in this sweet idea. Something that can become a new tradition while keeping the old traditions alive.

Elenfhant

We decided a while ago we want to gift the girls useful, simple presents this Holiday season. We have just spent almost 2 years of our lives packing, moving, sorting, moving again, purging, renovating, moving some more, renovating some more, purging, renovating. You get the idea. Through this we’ve realized that we have too much “stuff” and the burden of holding on to it seems ridiculous. Since we are about to embark on installing our family room area carpet (fingers crossed before Christmas!) we thought bean bags would be such a great addition to the room that we hang out in the most. So, the search began for the right bean bags.

Linen Dolls

We’ve been following the linen doll craze for some time now and have loved every minute of it. But it wasn’t until just recently that we came across a linen doll (+ dollhouse!) maker that really won our hearts. Let’s put it to you this way - if Bitsy were to be a doll, this is how it would look and dress!

Harry Potter

We’ve recently started reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone with Lucy and Greer. It has been such a fun family experience to say the least. We snagged this illustrated copy of the book [ HARRY POTTER & THE SORCERER’S STONE ] from our local library in order to also engage Greer (age 4) and it has been such a special reading journey!
