New Products for December


We thought this would be such a neat idea, easy to use, store and clean baby changing pads. I just sent one to my cousin for her new baby and she loves it. You can fold it into a pouch, firs a diaper and wipes case in it as well, so it's super practical. Lined with flannel makes it very soft on one side and very clean on the other, a great stocking stuffer for the holidays! Just a few already made to get it to you just in time for Christmas!


Thank you!


Wow, how long has it been? Well, I feel I owe you an explanation as of why Natitys has been out of the loop for such a long time. We had a loss in the family, that, although it was not really “sudden”, it was hard, it involved traveling, and, as any time someone close to you passes away, it just throws all your daily routines off.


We've also been undergoing some mayor changes, for one, we are branching out in Sunny California, and we will also be making some other changes here in South Carolina and Florida. This also means some changes in management and the way we do things.


I have personally sent emails to all our customer that were affected by last month's issues, but I'd also like to take the opportunity to mention in our blog how deeply we appreciated your understanding and prayers. They have sincerely made a difference and we simply cannot thank you enough.


God Bless you all,


Eloisa

Natitys Designs Baby Sling Pouch


We had SO MUCH fun creating these! After a while of popular demand, and special requests from customers, we decided to starts Autumn with our very own Baby Sling Pouches! Made with the same beautiful fabrics as our nursing covers and car seat covers. They come in sizes from XS to XL and for 10.00 more, you can get your own personalized size! They are lightly padded and reversible. We even included an awesome pocket where the pouch folds into for easy carrying!
How to Use your Natitys Baby Sling:

Before you use your sling, you should read our "Sizing Page to ensure you are purchasing the correct size.

First, you want to make sure your sling is folded in half {by length}. You will know you are folding it correct,y when you have the two ends with seams meeting each other on one edge, the other edge should be the fabric folding.

After this, the sling should look like a "tube".

***

Following this, you will notice how the sling has one straight border and one curved border. Take the sling and slide it on your arm, then head and neck, resting the straight corner on your shoulder. The curvy one should reast against your side.

Make sure the straight portion that goes on your shoulder is well spread ed and away from your neck. The back of the sling should be flat and smooth across your back.

Your baby's bottom should meet with the curvy seam.

A lady does not kiss and tell ....

Well, this might seem a bit disappointing to a lot of you, and for that, I apologize, but we have decided that, for the time being, we will remain our very popular "copy-cat" anonymous, not out of consideration for them, but we do realize that the companies using our images illegally are not aware of the situation and as much as a part of us wants to send letters and talk to our lawyers and make a fiasco out of this, there's another part that just wants to focus on the great things in life, and the great ideas we are all having for new products lately so, why spoil our fun or yours with petty things like this? And on top of that, why would we want to give this "so-called-designer" the benefit of free advertising? NO way!

This does not in fact guarantee that some day the cat might be out of the bag, but for now, they just don't deserve our time and energy, so off we go to new and better things!

Autumn brings new items to Natitys Designs!


If you haven't been in our website lately, please stop by! You will find lots of new goodies at very affordable prices! As always, handcrafted my us! Like these new super adorable appliqué bibs! there are many more to come, but we simply could not resist adding them to the site early! Thinking Holidays already? Well, we do have them on sale as well! Buy 2 or more and you will get 10% off! Not a bad deal at all!

Vintage is in the air ...


We just got a new shipment of fabrics that are so breath-taking and unique we just HAD to stop what we were doing to create some new designs, there are many more coming this week, but to start, we have 3 new designs of car seat covers and 4 shopping cart covers. All beautiful and unique! We decided to come up with a girly design with absolutely no pink for those mommies who cannot stand the color pink, yes there are many! We also made a gorgeous Vintage flowers one n the Olivia Line and an introductory print called Blue Lotus, I personally think it's fit for any baby, girl or boy, because it has light blue background and it is coordinated with gray, white and cream but the print in a large flower that can be interpreted as a Vintage flower for a girl or as a surfer-Hawaiian themed car seat for a boy. So, very neutral for sure! Please stop by at the end of the week so you see more new designs, we have some mermaids, contempo, and puppies coming up!

All our NEW nursing covers line will include one of these cuties for free, but we will also offer these separately for all those mommies who do not nurse anymore etc. We just got a new shipment of new fabrics, these are beautiful, all light weight which is perfect for nursing, and they are what inspired us to make these diaper clutches. Get yours! Even if you don't have babies anymore, they are also great makeup cases!

A Natitys Designs Pillow for little Violet Affleck


OK, the cat's out of the bag, this is so much fun I can hardly stand it, this cannot be my "job", because I just love what I do so much it's very hard to consider it my career. I recently had the privilege to come in contact with Susan, the owner of Confetti Kidz Boutique, she shared with me that they are in the process of preparing a Boutique Gift Basket to the adorable Violet Affleck, daughter of Actor Ben Affleck and no other than the beautiful, super talented Jennifer Garner. Being a hard core-get out of my house because it's about to start-know every detail-call my Dad in Florida to discuss the episode-fan of the show Alias, I just knew this is something I would be so honored to be a part of. So, Susan, being the wonderful person that she is, added me to the selected group, and gave me a few details about Jennifer's taste, I was a huge fan of the show, but I really didn't know much about Jennifer's personal life or taste. What she was advised was that Jennifer liked Animal Skin (like zebra) she loved white roses and bright colors but at the same time she loved simple things ... the result, Violet's Pillow. In my personal opinion, I think I gathered the details I was given pretty good and I was not sure of the outcome adding so many things, but after adding the very simple zebra and letting it shine with all the beautiful ribbons I hand picked, I think (and hope) little Miss Violet enjoys it and Mommy and Daddy like it as well.

We decided this pillow will be available to the public through Confetti Kidz Boutique Exclusively. Other designs are available in our website, but if you loved this one, you will find it there in the next couple of weeks :) And there will be more details published about the gift basket and press info shortly.

Natitys Designs, who we are

About Me ...

I'm Eloisa, I was born in Ponce, PR. I'm the oldest of 4 siblings (2 guys, 2 gals) Mickey is a Mechanic in Atlanta, Carlos is a Computer 3-D Animation College Teacher in Orlando, and Carolina is a Senior in High school. My parents, Miguel and Eloisa live in Florida, when I was little, my Dad used to work for Caribbean Hotels, so we moved every year to a new Island and my childhood, although it was not what you would call "normal", it was pretty awesome, I absolutely loved, enjoyed and cherish all the memories and benefits we had living in Hotels in Caribbean Islands, it was as cool as it sounds.

Now, I am married to Paul, who has been in the Navy to this date for 7 years, he works with Nuclear Power. And I have 2 lovely little girls, Natalie, and Claire. We move a lot, we have lived in Florida, Virginia and South Carolina right now. And this is why I prefer to keep my business online based. I Studied Fashion Design in Venezuela, and I also have a BA in Business Administration.

The beginning ...

Natitys Designs was founded by myself in 2001 when my first child, Natalie, was born, like a lot of new moms, I needed some extra cash, so I stated making Custom Baby and Kid's Bedding for friends, when I decided I could work part time on this newly found love of mine, I decided to go through all the correct home based business channels and start my own legitimate business.

The name ...

I needed a name, I wanted it to be catchy and cute, the name "Natitys" (nah-tee-tees) came about when my niece, Alana, who was around 3 when Natalie was born, called her "Natity" so, the name became very used in the family, so I decided to name my business after my first born.

Through the years ...
Well, I started making Custom Baby Bedding, then I included my own designs, then I started making large bedding, as orders kept coming in, I had to hire help from family. Things got a little bit slow for a while, this allowed me to concentrate in new designs and new products, and this is what I try to do in my "slow season". As you can see now, we offer all kinds of items like Bedding, Accessories, Baby Gear, Mommy Gear, soon we're also including Daddy gear ... and I'm sure we'll keep adding on and on as time allows us and Boutique Family needs change.

Our items are offered in some boutiques and some online boutiques, we really do hand pick our sellers because we do not want to over-saturate the market with our products and we'd like customers to have the ability to see more designers and have a much more experience when shopping. I personally prefer to see different things in different sites and not a little of the "same thing" everywhere.


And there you have it! This is us in a nutshell :)
