Baby Shower Highlights

Soap labels I added to the custom soaps from Rogue Valley Soap on Etsy

Finished soaps ready to be given to shower guests!
These Bags were used at a popcorn bar with custom labels made by me! Buuuttt... I forgot to take photos of the bar so this is all I can show you ... womp wa

The pretty table with my Guest "book" Print ready to be signed and a Baby Shower bag game
Pretty dessert bar including gorgeous baby theme sugar cookies made by my mother-in-law! 
Just some additional pretty shower details
All of the coordinating stationery and paper items from the shower. Available here!
I told you last week that I would share more of my shower decor and details with you and I finally have them up today! In typical me fashion I had every intention of taking photos... and then didn't take any! Woops!! But above are some of the photos from the shower that I stole from other people and took as I was prepping the stationery.

So anyway... I just have to say my mom did such a wonderful job with my shower. Every detail was so elegant and lovely. She painted mason jars light pink and mint, and filled them with pretty flowers and placed them with children's books on top of pretty coordinating table runners for the center pieces. So simple but pretty! She also had a bubbly bar (or for me lemonade with fruit added in a champagne glass) because who doesn't love a nice glass of bubbly at a celebratory event! We had a beautiful dessert table with cake pops and gorgeous hand-made baby themed sugar cookies by my mother-in-law! And the last table was the table with my guest "book" print and fun baby shower game.

We played this game that we found on The DeVore's Blog, The "Guess What's in the Bag" game where each bag is labeled with a letter forming the words "baby shower" and has an items inside that starts with the letter on the bag and is for baby. So cute! And the last game we played, to follow the storybook theme from the invitations, was a nursery rhyme game... which I have to say was really hard and I have a lot to learn in the next month or so!

Also a quick shout out to Rogue Valley Soaps on etsy! It's where we purchased the soap shower favors and can I just tell you how amazing them smell!! Great product, I really loved their soaps! For my shower though, since I was making all of the paper items to coordinate with my invitation, we just asked them to send the soaps and the gift bags and leave the labels off. Everything came ready to put together and I just added the labels, popped them in the pretty bags, and they were ready to give out.

So that's it, this lovely shower was such a wonderful event and I can't wait for my baby girl to meet everyone who was there and who already loves her so much!!

Hope you enjoyed the sneak peek at all the details!

Fashion Illustration Friday - With a Twist

Tea Party Print from Petite Chic Shop by Michelle Baron

Tricycle Print from Petite Chic Shop by Michelle Baron
Today's Fashion Illustration Friday has a little twist, it's all about the kids! If you follow me on instagram you've already seen these two, but I couldn't wait to share the finals here.

I've been working on a line of little girl fashion illustrations for awhile now. They were originally available in my Michelle Baron Studio etsy shop but as I've been adding more I decided to create a shop specific to them. My new shop Petite Chic Shop on etsy features just kid friendly fashion illustrations. Here are two that I created this week and are available in the shop, Tea Party and Tricycle prints. They are playful and fun and adorable and ready to be added to your kids room, playroom, nursery, etc and all prints are available in a variety of hair and skin colors to fit the specific child!

What do you think of these latest fashion illustrations?!

Illustration Reveal: My Baby Shower Guest Book

There are so many things going on right now that I can't wait to share with you but one that I keep hinting at I can show you today!! This past Saturday was my baby shower and my parents threw such a pretty and elegant party. I had a wonderful time! For the shower I got to design all of the stationery and paper products to coordinate with their decor and can I just tell you how much fun I had! Today I wanted to show you the illustration we used as a guest book.

We had each guest sign their name in a balloon so that as it hangs in the nursery our baby girl will already see how many people love her and are so happy to have her in their lives. The top picture is the actual illustration and the bottom pictures show you the illustration framed with all of the signatures! I also have it next to one of the other illustrations that will hang in her room. I'm creating a small gallery wall for her of roughly six illustrations that I'm hoping she will love. I'll show you those soon too, but currently they are still in process. I'll also show you more details from the shower tomorrow!

For now I hope you love this print as much as me!!

If you love this guest book illustration and/or giraffe print you can get them now in my new Children's Fashion Illustration specific etsy shop (More illustrations, prints and designs will be added in the coming days and weeks)! Or see other items available in my original etsy shop!

Illustration Reveal: Little Louis' Adventures

The Scariest Dog on the Street, Little Louis' Adventures

Back in the fall when things were crazy busy I was working on a few super secret jobs that I couldn't tell you anything about. Well today I can finally reveal one of them!!

I had the privilege of working with the author J. C. Gordon on her book The Scariest Dog on the Street part of her series Little Louis Adventures. The story is very cute and gives children a great message about judging based on appearances. Hope you enjoy the peek at a few of the pages, and illustrations, above.
