I would love to have the pleasure and anticipation of a new arrival (and let’s be honest, a nursery to decorate with beautiful creations!) but in leu of that, I have to surrender to my fate as an older mother with teenagers and kids who are quickly growing to look me eye to eye and depend entirely on shared customer pictures for crib shots these days. I have considered getting a booth at the local artist market JUST to have a place to set up a crib and take collection photographs. I have contacted local businesses that sell cribs and asked if I can come in and use them to take pictures, I have tried to rope in all of my mommy friends into letting me come manipulate their sacred spaces in order to take some product photos and let me tell you, all aforementioned routes are a LOT HARDER than you would think. I have new dreams emerging in my life and a new direction I would like to take my business and included in that blueprint is a photography studio where I can set up and display multiple items at once that all coordinate and go together. Nearly everything I make is intended to go together in some way, but that is a hard thing to capture when items are sold individually… I say all this to impress upon you the genuine LOVE I have for people who share their photos with me because they are giving me something I can not (currently) give myself. I was so enamored with this nursery set up from fellow Etsy seller at Coastal Maine Creations when I saw it that I knew I would do a blog post about it. She bought my constellation blanket with organic cotton sateen on one side and organic cotton fleece on the back side, with a dreamy satin border as you can see in the pictures, as well as a Navy Constellation Map crib sheet. I got in touch with her to see who made that AMAZING mobile with the keys because it reminds me of the part of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone where he has to ride the broom and catch the key to get into the dungeon, right?! Especially since it is the 20th Anniversary of the first edition of Harry Potter being released in the UK this past week, Harry Potter has been fresh on my mind and I wanted to include it in my blog post. So I asked her where she got it from and she told me she made it herself! She is a master leather worker and carved the little wings herself and put this together for her own nursery. Isn’t it amazing?! I can only imagine what sweet little dreams this kid will have of flying through the stars and making magic happen every day! The take away? Send me your amazing nursery pictures and I will feature them on my blog with a link back to your shop or your instagram and will be forever grateful! 🙂 See this print and more of my work at Kari Goodwin Quilts, and know that I am always open to custom order requests like her Satin Edged Constellation Blanket. I love custom orders!!
