Handmade touches are a wonderful way to personalize your nursery. Amanda, a new friend from Bibs & Cribs, has a talent for hand painting furniture and accessories. Rocking chairs start around $100, and the glorious customized crown was $40.
What I love about Amanda is that she is a mom living her dream. She works from home creating her pieces. She has a degree in interior design and started making things for friends as baby shower gifts. When her friends oohed and aahed over the gifts she decided to pursue her art. Her business ballooned from there. Theses days Amanda actually has a "waiting list" for certain pieces.
Here's how she works: Amanda talks to her clients about what they want. She incorporates fabric samples and has a love for bright, funky colors and patterns. From there her imagination takes over. Contact Amanda at Bibs & Cribs for prices and check out her site for a full list of her offerings. And embrace the handmade!
