i'm super excited to share today's featured sponsor with you! Apples and 'Nanas is run by my dear friend Whitney - can you believe we've known each other since we were 14?! her shop features amazing hand-made items for babies and kiddos, and i'm proud to have her as one of my sponsors!
I'm a busy mom of two lil ladies who enjoys working with her hands and loves being crafty (is that cheesy? idk). My shop Apples & 'Nanas Boutique (named after my daughters Addie & Nora) is a collaborative effort with my mom. I sew super soft homemade baby burp cloths, bibs and blankies. My mom makes embroidered baby/toddler clothing and bibs.
My mother was always sewing me and my sister dresses and coordinating outfits when we were young, so I've always valued sewing as a skill. Sometime in my mid-twenties, I decided to buy my first sewing machine and had my mom teach me some basics (I started with handbags). When all my friends started having babies, I started making burp cloths and bibs for gifts and realized that it was something I really enjoyed doing.
I get most of my inspiration from visits to the fabric store. I absolutely love going and finding new, fun fabrics that I can't wait to make something with.
Whitney would like to offer a bib/burp cloths set (a $25 value) or a baby blankie (a $21 value) today as a giveaway! The winner will be able to pick one of their choice from the amazing selection at Apples and 'Nanas!
