Kids Today Online

We were just featured in the Show Biz, Atlanta section of Kids Today magazine. They were showing an exclusive, in-depth look at what's new and hot at the Atlanta gift show. This is such a privilege for us to be included among so many other well-established companies. Not only were we featured, but we are the first company to be mentioned! When I went to visit our retailer, Baby Bloomers in Mt. Pleasant, she showed me the magazine. I had no idea, and almost started crying!
It's just so nice to be recognized for all of the hard work and sacrifices that we all make as WAHM's! These are the moments that make us keep going. Please visit the link below to see our airplane design featured!'s

Celeb Kudos

We recently gave a custom baby bracelet to Fiona, Jennie Garth's daughter. We are so excited to report that she wrote us a thank you note for the "beautiful silver."
We have been fans of her for such a long time, and are very grateful to be given the opportunity to give her daughter a gift.
And yes, I still watch 90210, and glad that she's still on:)
