Meet SweetDesignsByMaryum, PlumTreeStudio and BoutiqueLuckyStars from the Etsy Baby Shower

Maryum from SweetDesignsByMaryum joined Etsy in February of 2009. She says her children are her inspiration she makes everything, including custom orders, their personalities and unique style in mind. SweetDesignsByMaryum features fun kids clothes for that stylish little man or woman in your life. Maryum says that each kid has their own personality and she tries to offer something to fit them all. Maryum also offers baby accessories that are fun and bold and they make great shower gifts. Her favorite product is the wide leg or ruffled minky pants; she says “they are just so soft and comfy.” The first time her little girl tried them on she said "ooooooh mommy these are nice.”

This is the first time SweetDesignsByMaryum is participating in the Etsy Baby Shower. The lucky mom paired with SweetDesignsByMaryum will most likely be receiving a cute comfy tiny t-shirt dress in a fun bold print, but the mom will get to make the final decision.

Maryum’s advice for new moms is to take everything in stride and one step at a time. She said “[babies] like to throw monkey wrenches in any plan you try to make… just go with the flow and let baby take the lead sometimes.”

SweetDesignsByMaryum will be having a different sale each week between now and Christmas. This week is 15% off all Christmas items, so be sure to stop by her shop.
Dana from PlumTreeStudio joined Etsy in June 2007 and this is her first time participating in the Etsy Baby shower! She is giving one lucky mom a choice of either a one-piece or a custom bib and burp cloth set.

Plum Tree Studio’s inspiration currently is her nieces and nephews. Plum tree studio started because of one of her nieces. The plum tree studio collection includes unique appliquéd tees and one-pieces. They carry items for both boys and girls ranging in ages of 3 months up to 5 years. Their collection has recently expanded to include accessories like bibs, burp cloths and button ties. You can see the “Ships Ahoy Tee” here!
We asked Plum Tree Studio what advice she might have for new moms. She said, “I am not a mother yet, next year is my time. The advice I would give is from an aunt's perspective and many years of watching friends and family members. Enjoy the time you have with your children, play with them, laugh with them, love on them. But don't forget to give them structure.”

Starting November 1st, Plum Tree Studio will be participating in EtsyKids's Santa Sleigh Ride Team Holiday Sale. Receive a discount of 10% off any purchase of $50.00 or more (does not include shipping).

Jennifer from BoutiqueLuckyStars joined Etsy in November 2007, but didn’t open up her shop until November 2008. Jennifer is inspired by fabrics, when she says that when she falls in love with a fabric she is determined to find a use for it. Life experiences and my children are also an inspiration. Jennifer recalls a fishing trip her family took spent Father’s Day weekend down in Key West. Her 3 and 4 year old daughters fell in love with fishing and their excitement was priceless when they reeled in their first dolphin. From this experience her mahi mahi t-shirt was born.
BoutiqueLuckyStars specializes in handmade organic cotton t-shirts and organic cotton bodysuits, super plush chenille burp cloths and chic baby wipe cases for that little star in your life. Sustainable, organic and/or eco friendly products have been chosen when possible in designing each and every product and is carried all the way through to the labeling and packaging using recycled paper products and biodegradable jute for the hangtags. Jennifer says “life is a full circle...everything we put on the ground, in the air and in the water will eventually come back to us in the products that we consume so we must take care!” Her favorite design is currently the “Surfer Dude” organic t shirt because it reminds her of the beach. This design has three surfboards on an organic cotton blend and recycled polyester t-shirt with navy, aqua and green coordinating fabrics. The beach is her favorite place in the world to relax and let go, and luckily it is in her backyard (well, almost)!

This is the first Etsy Baby Shower BoutiqueLuckyStars has participated in. One of the two lucky moms paired with BoutiqueLuckyStars has chosen the Funky Tie Organic Cotton Baby Bodysuit and the other will receive the Lucky Star Organic Cotton Long Sleeve Baby Bodysuit (slate star).
Jennifer’s advice for new moms is to have a sense of humor, keep a camera or video handy and remember to write down all those proud, mischievous, and fall out of your chair funny moments or you WILL forget. Jennifer has a journal of memories in a Word Doc with hopes of one day making a scrapbook for her children when things slow down, she asks herself “but do they really ever?!”
BoutiqueLuckyStars is offering 15% off and Free Shipping with Code ETSYKIDS for the months of October and November.
