Blogging Around…

The last few days have been spent finding blogs that are great for networking. In the process, I’ve stumbled across some blogs that are not only great for networking, but also tons of fun to read! On my sidebar I’ve posted a button for the cupcake themed giveaway at Another great giveaway is going on at ! Take a peek!

I’ve also been doing a bit more on Twitter… finding other people with my same love of the handmade to follow. I’m still trying to get in the swing of things on Twitter.

Facebook… eh… I’ve got to find some fans!

I’m doing all of these things in an effort to drive people to take a look at our website

For the LOVE of Art!
Currently, we are running a promotion during the month of February. It was generally aimed at local Arizona shoppers, but I’d like to invite shoppers across the nation to take part. Soooo***During the month of February… spend $100 at Childhood in store or online and receive a free photography session with artist Pamela Nicole! ($200 value) *Arizona residents only*
Out of state customers… spend $50 in store or online and receive a code for 15% off your next entire purchase!***

Ready or not… here I go! I’ve done it! I’ve set up my first blog! First, I’d like to say a bit about myself. I’m currently the owner of a delightful little brick and mortar boutique in Scottsdale, Az. I’ve been designing clothes and accessories for my own little ones (Rachel, 4 and Allison, 3) for a while now. Before I opened the boutique, I was traveling the country doing wholesale trade shows for a children’s accessory company.

My boutique carries so many wonderful things from moms/artists/designers/small manufacturers. Right now we are showcasing the work of several Etsy designers. I’m addicted to Tickled Pink Girls. Mary is so great… she makes the greatest pieces and even fills my crazy orders for the boutique. LOVE etsy! (

I’m also carrying two small manufacturers. My current favorite is Lunchbox Goods. ( They are fantastic! The fabrics they use are to die for… not to mention their unique yet functional designs. They also make Bottle Pets… those cute little creatures just FLY off my shelves. *Shout out to David and B*

In addition… I am still creating my own things. This last 14 months has been quite a journey! I’m not sure where I will go from from here! Be sure to check out my website: and follow me on twitter!
