review / unique alphabet print & quilted patchwork goods.

am super pleased about the products featured today. i am reviewing two online shops. these goodies came from the type of ladies you land upon in blogland that become like real friends. it doesn't feel the same without checking in on them often; such good and kind people. and crafty too.

ever creative michelle of lovely by m and her husband have created a golden team together creating art and design, twig creative. don't you love the idea of being in business with your spouse?! that sounds fun to me. they specialize in everything from charming wooden pieces (look at this darling ipad for kids!!) to clever logo design. i was thrilled to receive a surprise package from them with earrings for me and an awesome custom print just for benji. i love a unique piece for my walls. it's a cool print on nice wholesome stock ; graphic and bold enough for a boy and still playful for a nursery. (can i still call it a nursery when he's two and a half? maybe not.) i love that their alphabet prints are so reasonable you can justify splurging on two, one for a gift and one for your bulletin board.

lucinda of luc ends mixes a modern touch with her sewing skills. she runs an etsy shop filled with fun fabric and patchworked pretties. seriously, i adore her playful choices when it comes to fabric! her goodies are all very well made, bomber construction as my husband put it. super practical and darling. pictured products: the quilted patchwork zipper bag is about to become my new take-this-thing-everywhere pouch. it holds tons of stuff, stands upright, is thick and sturdy and ready for lots of love (and lug-around labor). with the helicopters, it may become a fast favorite of my little boy! the other is a embroidered tell me a story patchwork pouch for papers, little moleskine notebooks or a collection of colored pencils. perhaps even suitable for an e-reader. the geometric zigzag quilting makes me smile. and last but not least is lucinda's patchwork camera strap. so cute, right?! i know dozens of up and coming photographers who need one of these!! the added quilt batting is such a divine detail for extra support.

bonus / use the discount code marta and receive 15% off any lucends purchase. score.

p.s. these etsy shops have a passion for the handmade movement and encourage custom orders!

if you have a product you think my readers would enjoy, please contact me.

Great print! I'd love to get a "D is for Dylan" and "S is for Sawyer" print for each of my boys.
