Etsy Baby Shower Featured Shops - Volume 8

We've got a few more shops to showcase this week for the Etsy Baby Shower! The Etsy Baby Shower is a Virtual Baby Shower in which a number of expecting and brand new Etsy mommies receive gifts from donating Etsy shops. This shower we have raised 112 gifts from 91 Etsy Shops for 28 lucky new moms and moms-to-be! Check out my previous blog posts for more featured shops!
Also see my Co-host Deniz's blog for more featured shops!

BlessedMommyof1 joined Etsy on July 15, 2008 and this is her first time participating in the Etsy Baby Shower! She will be donating headbands in a variety of styles and colors to one lucky mom!

Nicole’s inspiration for her shop is her 18 month old little girl who shows her new things every day. Nicole says, “To see the world through her eyes really opens up my eyes, and I love creating cute little accessories to go with the things she loves.”

Nicole’s shop features all kinds of little girl accessories, from itty bitty clippies and larger clippies to tutus and hair bow holders. Her items are all one-of-a-kind, and are created with lots of love and attention to detail. Shown here is her crocheted flower itty bitty clippies! We asked Nicole what advice she might have for new moms. Nicole said, “I know everyone says it, but sleep while you can! Try to take some time by yourself, even if it's just for 15 minutes each day. You'll be amazed at how refreshing it is to just be: be alone and be YOU!”

Check out Nicole’s Etsy Shop! In October/November she’s featuring FREE SHIPPING on any order $15 and over! Use code FREE15 when ordering. You can also become a Fan on Facebook!

PrettyPrettyBows joined Etsy in August 2009 and this is her first Etsy Baby Shower. Monica is donating sets of infant bows to 4 lucky new moms! Monica’s inspiration for her products is her daughter and nieces. They LOVE bows so she tries to keep them stocked up. Monica started out making bows for her daughter, who calls them her "pretty pretties", and it grew from there. Shown here is Monica’s favorite product: The Little Hedgehog Clippie.

We asked Monica what advice she might have for new moms. She said, “Don't panic! LOL” For specials and discounts, check out the clearance section of PrettyPrettyBows! I have a clearance section with lots of cute discounted bows. You can also follow prettyprettybows on Twitter and become a fan on Facebook!

Lilybugboutique joined Etsy in December 2007. She is participating in her second Etsy Baby Shower and will be donating a lovely minky baby blanket. The inspiration behind LilybugBoutique’s hair bows is Ingrid’s daughter and making cute things to go with her clothes. And Ingrid loves finding cool designer fabric and matching minky to go with them for her minky blankets.

Lilybugboutique was started when daughter Lily was 6 months old. Ingrid named the shop after what they call her…Lily Bug. Checkout the sweet hair bow: The Flying Ladybug.
We asked Ingrid if she had any advice for new moms. She said, “Enjoy each and every moment, the good, and the bad, because before you know it...time has flown by and your kids have grown so big!”

Through November, LilybugBoutique is offering a Buy 1 Get 1 Half Off to anyone that convos Ingrid or mentions the code EtsyBabyShowerBOGO. She’ll be sure to adjust your invoice and refund you the discount!

JJKGirlyThings joined Etsy on April 15, 2009. Her inspiration for her products comes form several places. Mostly though it comes from creating things for her three grandaughters. As she shops with them she see outfits or colors that catch her eye and she usually writes it down to make something when she gets home. Also when she is at a craft store she finds ribbons or small embellishments that she thinks will make a cute bow. JJKGirlyThings loves to browse through Etsy supplies and find things that inspire creation.

JJKGirlythings is participating in the Etsy baby shower for the first time. She is donating a twenty dollar gift certificate to the new mom so that she gets exactly what she wants and needs!

You’ll find boutique style hair accessories for little girls at JJKGirlyThings. Barbara’s mission is to create durable, fun, all occasion hair accessories at an affordable price. Every little girl should have the opportunity to look their absolute greatest. Barbara strives to make just the right bow to complete that special outfit. Check out this little animal collection. So cute!

We asked Barbara what advice she has for new moms, she said, “It is a one day at a time experience. Enjoy each day. Make as many memory days as possible because before you know it they will be grown and gone.”

JJKGirlyThings is offering 50% off all Halloween items right now! And she has a clearance section for more great savings. You can also find her EtsyMini on this Blog.
Anther generous shop who has donated to the Etsy Baby Shower includes the founder of the Etsy Baby Shower EcoFriendly4u.
