Add Favorite YOUR Colors

What colors do you like? Or maybe you want to create a calming area so bright pinks and purples would not be the right choice.  Think about what you want from your home- comfort, inspiration, or maybe do individual rooms in different styles. 

 It is your house-make it your home.  

When I think of the bedroom, I want calming and neutral colors so I can sleep better.

Create a SPACE just for you! 

I would love that, but I only have a corner in the living room where I have my favorite chair so that I can read, write, and meditate. I put all my favorites in this little part of the house that is all mine.

Personalized Artwork Helps Turn a House Into A Home!

When you start adding pictures of you and your family, then you are creating a HOME.  But let’s not forget our furbabies too. I never thought about getting a picture of my dog, but when I received a custom portrait of Harley from West and Willow, I wondered why it took me so long.  I think I might have found what I want to give as gifts from now on.

Or what about ARTWORK you create!

My family is very creative, so we have all kinds of artwork around the house, but we have never done Augmented Reality (AR) artwork.  When we had the opportunity to create a personalized work of art, we had a lot of fun. Both beginners and seasoned artists alike can create wall-worthy artwork with Cupixel.  

The experience begins with the Cupixel Art Box. The Box contains EVERYTHING needed to create masterful works of art. The Cupixel Art Box contains enough art supplies to create multiple works of art. When in need of refills, users use the app to place an order for the Cupixel Refill Box. The Refill Box provides additional proprietary painting canvases, as well as an additional Cupixel frame to showcase the artwork.

My daughter was so amazed at how she was able to create her custom artwork with her phone. This was an experience we won’t forget, and we have a new portrait to put in the house- made by Sahara!

Toddler Fashion Built For Fun.

Doodle Pant Fashion
Sea Turtle Leggings

When buying clothing for the little ones I look for things such as durability and how much range of motion they are able to achieve. You know as well as I do if something isn’t comfy and is movement restricting they are going to hate it. With Doodle Pants Clothing I don’t have to worry about that. These clothes are tailored to move and stretch with your active little one. My two year old loves running and playing outside. She climbs and hops all over with ease in her Sea Turtle Cotton Leggings. Doodle Pants are the perfect toddler fashion built for fun!

Sea Turtle 3D Hoodie

To match her leggings she has the adorable Sea Turtle 3D Hoodie. This is the perfect sweatshirt for little kids. I love that it has a zippable ” Turtle shell” on the back which is great for sticking her binky or small treasures in so she doesn’t lose them. It would even fit a diaper and wipes if you didn’t feel like carrying a diaper bag! If your anything like me fewer items to carry are a godsend.

When these two pieces are put together they make the perfect outfit. I love the fact that so much of their stuff is gender-neutral. Now your little one can be anything that they want to be and look amazing doing it. Which is exactly what kids need, to be able to be free and express them-selfs whenever they want. Sometimes I feel like that creativity gets taken away when I hear someone say that little girls can’t like dinosaurs or little boys can’t like rainbows. These adorable clothes let your little ones be innocent for just a little longer.
