Land of Nod Real Family visit 12.17.2014

It still feels pretty surreal, but last week, the Land of Nod creative director, Danielle, showed up on Morgan’s doorstep with a whole crew to do a #NodRealFamily makeover on her son’s room and the little nook under the stairs. Have you seen that feature in their catalog? It’s where they literally show up and completely redo your space with all of their awesome kids products! This little visit is a dream for anyone with spaces for littles, but especially sweet because we have partnered with Land of Nod to design some pieces for their Spring 2015 line and this was the very first time we got to see one of the rugs, a quilt, a sheet set and bunch of pillows that we designed exclusively for Nod!!!!!! Needless to say, collaborating with Nod is one of our favorite partnerships and since our kids are our biggest source of inspiration, it’s beyond thrilling to be able to actually have those products live in our homes!!! So…this is just a little peak into the scene at Morgan’s house last week….but much, much more to come in the January and March 2015 catalog!!! We can’t wait to share it all!!!!! (Still pinching ourselves)

Holiday Pop-up Shop Recap 11.25.2014

So many thanks are in order for what we feel was a wildly successful Pop-up on Thursday!! A giant shout-out to all the amazing KC shops that participated and wowed shoppers with their lovely products:  Happy Habitat,  Jaime Rovenstine,  Janesko,  Prairie GoodsAmpersand Design StudioNickel & Suede Convivial ProductionOcean and SeaMaddy Nash,  Alicia Janesko and  Survival Letterpress. There was just SO MUCH TALENT packed into our studio. We didn’t want the temporary shop to be taken down!

Thanks a million to everyone who came out and shopped, chatted, had a few drinks and photo-boothed it up! It was so nice to see so many faces—old friends and new! What a great night all the way around and we have photographic proof of the good times. We had the best time looking through all of the pics from One Sparrow Creative!

Our minds are already racing about having another one in the spring! We can’t wait to do it again!

We were excited to debut a few new products at the pop-up and will be getting those live on our Etsy shop any day now! What do you think about our new platters (below)? We also had some brand-spankin’ new phone cases for sale!

Holiday Pop-up Shop 11.12.2014

We are SOOO excited to kick off the holiday season with a little Pop-up shop in our own studio! We got to thinking it would be fun to pull together a few of our favorite local Kansas City makers to have a little shopping event, and before we knew it, we had what we think is a pretty killer group assembled. There are home goods, fine art prints, jewelry, leather goods, T-shirts, women’s wear, ceramics, accessories, and the list goes on and on! Plus, we will even have a fun Photo Booth by the talented One Sparrow Creative to capture some memories of the night! There will be some snacks and drinks to get you in the shopping mood, and what’s better than getting some shopping done early before madness of the holidays truly begins! We hope you can join us! Here’s a look at the fabulous vendors who will be there (scroll down for links to their websites):

1. Happy Habitat // 2. Jaime Rovenstine // 3. Janesko // 4. Prairie Goods // 5. Ampersand Design Studio // 6. Nickel & Suede // 7. Convivial Production // 8. Ocean and Sea // 9. Maddy Nash // 10. Alicia Janesko
