Have you seen this blog?

Did you know that I belong to a fabulous Kid Designer group called OKID? Let me start from the beginning, OKID has been around for years, probably longer than I've been in business, they started out as a group of designers who used to sell their art and boutique children's items on ebay, and from there it evolved into a household name for boutique children's items.
Over the years the group has gone through several changes, some artists have retired, some have gone their own way and some new ones have joined. Currently, all the OKID designers can be found on etsy, and everyone has their own website where they do the majority of their business.
Our group is based on a beautiful friendship of women who make a living doing what they love. We have all been there for each other and have endured anything and everything that a true friendship can endure.
Let me introduce you to the OKID designers, one by one, alphabetically:

ChicBazar: this is my Mom's shop, she designs and makes women's accessories like hand bags, wallets, make up bags, diaper bags and more. All of her items are carefully sewn, made with designer fabrics and materials inside and out, she puts a lot of care and attention to all her creations.

DoodlePadDesigns: MaryAnna has lots of projects with her business, primarily, DoodlePaddesigns specializes in custom hand painted boutique drawer knobs; they are made to coordinate with whatever you need them to, they complete any room and any decor. In addition to the knobs and pulls, MaryAnna also offers a gorgeous Holiday collection of items that includes ornaments and gift tags, almost one half of the year, her work is concentrated in these amazing items, and lastly, she also offers the whimsiest papers collection there is, from business cards, to stickers and stationary, you will find the most adorable, best presented and affordable items out there, for personal use or your small business.

: Libby makes the most beautiful hair bow holders, that can be coordinated with your little one's room, completely personalized and made by your specifications. Libby also offers a huge variety of hair accessories that everyone loves and are appropriate for girls of any age.

Iwantedtowonder: Nancy and Pat are a mom and daughter team. Nancy offers the most beautiful paintings and hair bow holders {unlike Libby's, Nancy's hair bow holders are an actual canvas painting, with the holders attached, Libby's are actual signs, they are both TDF!} all the art work Nancy makes is kid inspired and coordinates beautifully with popular decor. Pat offers gorgeous children's boutique clothes, accessories and gifts. During the holidays, you should also check Pat's gorgeous pet stockings, they are soooo adorable!

: Therese specializes in all sorts of art work that coordinate with beautiful and popular bedding sets and room decor. She makes anything and everything there is to offer for your little one's walls, from wall paper cut outs, to prints, paintings, name meaning wood signs, wall clocks and more. She, as I've said about a thousand times, is the artist behind the Hand Painted Dolls offered on both our sites.

And you already know me! So, there you go, these are my designer friends, they all have blogs, newsletters, facebook fan pages, you should check them all out!
