One thing I recommend to new Moms, especially stay-at-home Moms, is to join a local Moms group. For support, for play dates, or simply just to vent. We’ve met some really great families through our Moms group. Thank goodness I joined, or I never would’ve crossed paths with Julie Roman of Precious Peanut Shop. Though we’ve never actually met in person (she moved to TX, I live in NY), we keep in touch through various social media. She’s a big fan of sweet whimsy designs 🙂 (I even designed her logo!), and I’m a big fan of Precious Peanut Shop.
I could tell you allllll about Julie and her wonderful shop. I’ll try my best to be brief.
For now, I just want you to Ooh and Aah over her amazing creation for The Big Carnival Bash.
Can you stand it?!
The whole entire process was amazing! I designed a dress, Precious Peanut Shop suggested some great alterations and per my request, was able to find each and every fabric and then some. She designed this dress from the bottom up, literally. It also included a multi-colored tutu layer (our dress-up-loving daughter didn’t want to wear it this day, go figure!) and Julie whipped up a coordinating headband with the most adorable little florette. She had insightful suggestions to making the dress more fun and carnival-like than I ever imagined.
This dress is amazing.
The quality is beyond anything you’ll ever find in chain stores. The handmade design is both creative and clever, and it looks even more beautiful in person.
Precious Peanut Shop also stitches handmade children’s napkins and snack bags, which we love and take everywhere! Since cutting paper products such as paper towels and napkins from our day-to-day life, we are always in need of quality cloth. Precious Peanut has it! Julie will help you select from oodles of fabric choices to please your mini diner. My suggestion? Grab a coordinating snack bag. Your kids will want to constantly carry their own snacks & meals on every picnic, party, and play date ’til college!
So. Much. Fun!
I would love to tell you more, but we’ll have Precious Peanut Shop back again soon, promise :).
