Welcome to LifeLoveCreations! I've always had a passion for creating, and started this little Etsy shop back in 2012. It took me a while to figure out exactly what I wanted to do with it (something I'm actually still working on!), but in the past year, I began actually telling people about this little "side hustle" of mine, and the support has been amazing. I work full-time in digital marketing, so I find the time to run this little shop during (late) nights and weekends. I make anything from shirts, to mugs, to cake toppers and party decor (more on that soon!) I especially love custom orders and working to make your vision come to life. No order is to big or too small - just ask! I've shared a lot of what I've worked on over @lifelovecreations on Instagram for the past year. With the support of a few close friends, I decided to also start a page in hopes of sharing with a few more of you. I'm not quite sure where this little shop of mine will take me, but I have a feeling it'll be pretty good! Thanks for supporting this dream of mine!

My heart (and order queue) are full thanks to many of you! Playing catch up after a weekend filled with events, holiday festivities with family & friends, and lots of laughs with my littles. ❤️

Enjoy this time lapse... if only I could weed designs this fast in real life! Bonus points if you catch my mistake 😬

Happy #smallbusinesssaturday! We are currently heading out to our favorite holiday tradition - cutting our tree down at a local farm, @gaverfarm! I love that we get the chance to spend the morning with our friends who are family and support a small business at the same time! 🌲

That being said, I want to thank you all for the support of this little small business of mine. If you’ve followed me for some time, you know it’s more than “just” a shop. It’s a chance for me to use my hands and express myself creatively, while hopefully bringing a bit of joy into each home an item lands in. I truly do a little happy dance with each order! Don’t forget, everything in the shop is 10% off this weekend - including ornaments (DM me for those).

After this morning’s adventure, I plan to visit a few of my favorite shops - both in person and online). I only wish the @makersofmaryland pop up shop were closer!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving day. I sure had a blast with these little turkeys! Hard to believe they’re no where near this little anymore. I knew I had to have this newborn photo on my tree this year, so alas...

In honor of Black Friday, I wanted to share a brand new product I’m offering this holiday season - custom ornaments! I have a VERY LIMITED quantity available, so you’ll want to order ASAP. I can add any picture, logo, etc. to each. BTW, they make really awesome Grandparent gifts (shh...don’t tell our parents 😉)

Each ornament is $12 for one-side, $15 for two. I can add another photo or even a name/date to the back... just a few ideas! Order 2 or more and save 10% - this weekend only!

P.S. everything in my Etsy shop is 10% off, except for the cookie squad sweaters which are 15% off (through tomorrow only). It’s the perfect time to stock up on family and teacher gifts!

If you’d like to order ornaments, please message me directly. They are not offered in my shop and are limited quantities. I plan to bring a few to holiday shows, as well so these will sell out! Happy shopping friends!! ❤️

*SHOP UPDATE* Thank you to everyone who voted on my stories yesterday. I was truly blown away by the response to the COOKIE SQUAD designs. My goal was to create something that could be worn throughout the holiday season (and beyond - bc let’s be real, I’m a proud member of the cookie squad any time of the year 🙋🏼‍♀️). The results leaned slightly toward the script design, but so many of you voted for option B that I’ve decided to make BOTH available! 🍪

Each pullover is available in kid’s sizes 2T-5/6 and adult S-2XL. I’ve also made each available in three color options - pink, grey, and red. They are lightweight and fleece-lined. BTW, I added the grey as an option for you boy mommas... you better believe my little guy will be rocking one alongside his big sis and me this season!

And now the DETAILS: there are four listings in the shop’s holiday section. These will be PREORDER only for this week. They will begin shipping 12/2 - just in time for all the festivities! Since I added so many design and color options, this allows me to better adjust inventory and make sure you get exactly what you’d like. As an added thank you (and for reading this far), each pre-ordered shirt is 15% OFF now through Saturday, 11/30 (discount reflected in price). In case you’re keeping track, that makes each one cheaper than a Target pullover. Just saying. 💁🏼‍♀️ As an added bonus, orders over $35 SHIP FREE and if you’re local, I’m happy to arrange dropoff/pickup. Just leave me a note in the “notes to seller” section!

Again, thank you for all your encouragement and help with these! Sweatshirts were the popular option by far, but if you were hoping for a tee/onesie or apron, DM me and we’ll make it happen. Now hurry on over to the shop to be sure you have yours in time for allll the cookie parties and holiday festivities!🎄

How was my baby ever this small? This was from her first trip to the pumpkin patch. This was also one of my first shirt designs over 3 years ago! It’s also a hint at what I've been up to behind the scenes in this little shop of mine. I've spent some time working on DIYs and projects for my little family, but I'm back to creating for the shop and have to admit - it feels so good.

I started my Etsy shop as a way to deal with postpartum anxiety and feel a bit more like myself after H was born. If I'm being completely honest, I struggled again (actually, a bit worse) after Wy was born. It's taken me a while to get back into the grove of it all... but here I am. Slow and steady, right? Creating is my happy place, my form of self-care — and I create to bring a little bit of joy to others.

My focus has shifted a bit, but I realize I'm truly happiest creating for my babies and fellow mommas. And that my friends, is where I'm going. I'm planning to re-launch @lifelovecreations, by bringing back to where it all started — designing for babies and their mommas. Celebrating life's moments. ✨

Stay tuned, friends. I promise it'll be good.

❄️ The cold never bothered me anyway. 🎶

Just kidding. Windchill is 6° here in Maryland. I’m bothered. And tired. Over the cold/winter and all the kiddo sicknesses that come with it. But at least I have coffee - and cute mugs! 💗

Hi friends! Popping in here real quick to remind you that the last day to place an order for pre-Christmas delivery is TOMORROW, 12/14. After that, I’m putting the shop in vacation mode and enjoying a little downtime with my family for the holidays. So hurry on over to the shop if you need a last-minute gift!🎄
.
I’m currently working full-time, navigating life with 2 kiddos, and making sure your orders ship in time. You all have kept me busy with “big heart” tumbler orders, and for that I am so grateful. Your kids’ teachers and daycare providers are lucky to have such thoughtful gifts. And I’m lucky to have your support. Every order - big or small - has meant more to me this holiday season than you know. So thank YOU!!

It’s that time of year again! Our “big hearts” tumblers are starting to sell like hotcakes (where did that saying come from, anyway? ⬅️ random thoughts...) Anyways, that means this momma is busy handcrafting each one of these bad boys. I can personalize them too! They make the perfect gift for teachers, daycare providers, or anyone else who loves your kiddos (almost) as much as you do!
.
Shop the link in my bio to order. Last day to purchase in time for Christmas delivery is December 14th, so hurry!

Whew, this week was a busy one! I launched a few new designs while getting back into the routine of working full-time. Go big or go home, right? 🤷🏼‍♀️ I think the hardest part was trying to get 2 kiddos out there door each morning! Props to you mommas who have been doing it for years. I’m exhausted! 😂 We survived, and actually did pretty well! And to celebrate - we’re doing all the holiday things today! Finally decorating our tree we cut down last weekend! 🎄
.
Last year, a few of you asked about this ornament. I had made only one, but I have a handful available for purchase this year! They’re $8 each or 2 for $15. They make the perfect little gift or addition to your Christmas decor. Supply is limited, so DM me soon if you’d like one!

SO FREAKIN EXCITED!! I have a few new holiday designs coming at you this week! Yes, I’m a little behind buttttt life with a newborn... 🤷🏼‍♀️ Who else basically relies on Amazon Prime for ALL. THE. THINGS?! Gifts, diapers, you name it - I’m ordering it. Amazon saves me during this busy time of year! 🎁
.
This design will be added to the shop, but I didn’t want to keep you all waiting any longer. DM me to order yours now in plenty of time for the holidays. Available in red or green triblend (seriously, the SOFTEST shirts) and crew or v-neck styles. Unisex sizes XS - 2XL. 🎄

Took our annual trip to the tree farm this morning with Peace Love and Ginger and her family. 🎄Cutting down our Christmas tree has become one of my favorite traditions and I love sharing it with my kiddos and our friends! Now that the holiday season has officially kicked off, it’s time to start thinking about those Christmas jammies and Santa pictures. I’ve added a few of last year’s favorite shirts back to the shop. They’re available in all sizes from newborn to adult and can be customized (just send me a message before ordering).
.
And in the spirit of the holiday season, I’ve extended my 20% sale through Monday. Enter coupon code HOLIDAY at checkout or send me a DM!

I can’t let #nationalphotographyday slip by without a shoutout to one of my favorite photographers and fellow maker, @sweetgoldiebeephoto. Rose happens to also be the talented artist behind @sweetgoldiebeedesigns - you’ve probably seen some of her hand-lettered items in my shop (hint: cake toppers)!
.
A few weeks ago, Rose was sweet enough to squeeze in some time with my family and capture the most magical family/maternity photos - literally in our backyard! I’ll definitely share more soon over @toocraftymoms blog!
.
And for those of you following along - yes, I am still pregnant...🤰🏼 40 weeks, 2 days... not that I’m counting or anything! 😬

So, I did a thing. Well, two things actually.

1. I decided to put my shop in vacation mode for at least a few weeks. I didn’t think I’d decide to “officially” take a break, but as I near the 40 wk mark 🤰🏼 (tomorrow, y’all! 😬) I realize that I need to focus on myself, my fam, and this little guy (who will hopefully make his appearance soon). I don’t know what the future holds and would hate to fall behind on orders while adjusting to life as a family of 4. I hope to be back at it really soon though! #naptimehustle, right? 💪🏻

And 2. Around this time last year, I remember being excited about hitting 100 Etsy sales (and countless more from you amazing peeps). Well, as of today, I’m at over 300! ✨ It’s amazing what can happen in a year. I am so grateful to you all and this little shop for giving me a creative outlet when I’ve needed it the most. I can’t wait to get back to it and plan to come back from my break with new design ideas - and a few more bags under my eyes. 😉 Thank goodness for coffee! ☕️

How is it already the first week of May?! If you haven’t already, now’s the time to start thinking of and planning those end of year gifts! These tumblers make the perfect gift for you child’s teacher, daycare provider, nanny, etc. Bonus: each cup holds 16 oz of COFFEE (ok, or water...but we all know which one keeps them going 😉). Can also be personalized with a name on the back!

In case you missed my Instagram stories yesterday, I recently launched something pretty exciting in my shop! As many of you know, I’m working to expand my party decor offerings and cake toppers are one of my favorites. They are such a small detail, but I truly believe they make a BIG statement!

I always love creating gold glitter toppers, but wanted to add something a bit more unique to my shop. That’s where Rose from Sweet Goldie Bee came in. Together, we collaborated to create one-of-a-kind toppers featuring her gorgeous hand lettering. I couldn’t be more excited about this collection. So far there are 7 different options (even one Harry Potter themed one for you fellow HP lovers!).

Take a look in the shop and let me know which is your fave! Also, is there a saying we should add? I’d love to hear it!

TGIF!! Somehow Thursday flew by and I missed #internationalmermaidday... so I’m sharing a #latergram of my favorite mermaid color combo to date! 🧜‍♀️ I just LOVE the coral and gold glitter together. This was part of a custom first birthday order for a sweet girl. Her mom asked me to make a cake topper and a 12 month milestone picture banner. It was too large to photograph hanging, so I got creative. Thinking of adding these to my shop - what do you think?

It’s been a little quiet over here lately, but for good reason... been working on a few behind-the-scenes additions to my party decor shop, but more importantly, some fun collabs with Rose over Sweet Goldie Bee! I’m thrilled to launch this updated version of the ever popular “eating for two” bowl. Featuring Rose’s handlettering, it’s truly one-of-a-kind!
💗
And yes, I have been eating for two...constantly craving cereal. All kinds, but Lucky Charms top the list lately!

#TBT to a set of momma mugs I created a few Christmases ago. This was one of the first orders I took after I learned to print on mugs! And honestly, this saying couldn’t be more true for most moms I know. Raise your hand! 🙋🏼‍♀️ I was even asked to customize one of the mugs for a huge Disney/Disney podcast fan! Speaking of which...

Peace Love and Ginger and I are heading to Disney in just over a month, and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ll be there for a work conference, but she and I will be sure to sneak in a little fun at the parks!

Any travel tips for us? We’ll be in Magic Kingdom for at least one of the days. Bonus points if it involves food - or coffee!! ✨✨✨

Who says mommy and me is just for girls?! This adorable set is for a lucky momma and her sweet little guy to rock in a holiday parade this weekend! 🍀🍀🍀 Which has me thinking about holiday traditions... I love a good corned beef dinner, but have a feeling I’ll be enjoying some green ice cream from the comfort of my couch instead.🤰🏼Pistachio ice cream is my weakness, y’all. Next to chocolate, of course. But, alas...Lent. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Stepped out of my comfort zone to try something new this evening. I’ve wanted to create paper flowers for as long as I’ve been paper crafting, but I’ve always been a bit intimidated. I’m a perfectionist to the core, so the thought of all the mistakes I could make terrified me. Somehow my hands went to work and these beauties came together perfectly - and way more easily than expected. So, I’m here to tell you to try that new thing! It may just be beautiful. Or it could be a flop. But you won’t know unless you try. And now, I think I may just have the bit of confidence I need to create these on a much larger scale. Oh, the party decor possibilities! Floral backdrops anyone?! 💐
.
As for these little cupcake toppers? They’re headed off to be part of an exciting giveaway. Details coming soon (on my Instagram page @lifelovecreations)!

Quiet little Saturday working on a few mermaid toppers and new mermaid-themed party designs. Maybe, just maybe...I’m secretly planning H’s future mermaid birthday party. Or my own. 💁🏼‍♀️ No shame in that, right? 😂 I have a special love of mermaids, ever since my “Little Mermaid” themed 5th birthday party (yes, now you can all figure out exactly how old I am 😉). But something about making these just makes me so dang happy! I’m excited to add more to my mermaid lineup and hopefully make the day of some sweet littles (and their mermaid-loving mommas)! 🧜‍♀️ Stay tuned for some fun shop updates!
