I met Johanna Parker of Kaya's Kloset initially at the Beverly Arts Festival in June. I was immediately smitten with her teeny tiny footwear (but she makes them for adults, too!) and knew I had to come back once I found out if my baby was a boy or a girl. Johanna was inspired to start making these adorable booties years ago when her daughter, Kaya, then a baby, kept kicking off her socks. I'm sure I will be stockpiling more of these adorable little shoes, both for my little one and to give as baby presents.
Several years ago when my husband and I went to ArtBeat he purchased the adult version of this shirt for himself from bit & little bit. I already thought it was a really incredible shirt with a great message, so when I saw the baby version of it I knew we had to have a matching one for our babe. (And really, what dad wouldn't want to wear a matching outfit with his baby?)
At my first Greenway Open Market show this summer I was stationed next to Beth Rosa of Pink Pigeon Creations. Let me tell you, when you're a pregnant woman with a slight obsession with handmade items, it was really hard to resist going on a shopping spree when you're working at a craft show and you're next to someone selling handmade baby gear. I knew I would be back to purchase some of her lovely handmade baby products, which includes wet bags (like the one pictured above), burp cloths, changing pads and the most adorable hooded towels (which will definitely be going on my registry, just in case you were wondering).
