Meet Our Featured Sponsor: Baby Dream Backdrops

We're so excited to introduce our current Featured Sponsor, Baby Dream Backdrops!   Aileen and Spencer Treadwell are so incredibly talented and have the cutest site, I got lost in there literally for HOURS looking through everything!  Wanna meet them and find out more about what they do?  Here you go.....

Please introduce yourself: 
We are Aileen and Spencer Treadwell, owners of Baby Dream Backdrops.  We can be found on our website which is www.babydreambackdrops.com or you can also find us at our Facebook page which is http://www.facebook.com/babydreambackdrops.

When did you launch your store?  What inspired you to start? 
March of 2011.  Aileen (my wife) is an active portrait photographer and was tired of working with other drops (muslins, paper, etc) as most drops wrinkled or tore easily and were a pain to store.  She decided to find a way to design and create her own backdrops that wouldn't wrinkle and could be easily used.  One of the nice things about our drops/floors is that we truly believe in our product as Aileen uses our drops for all of her shoots. 

Which one of your products is your personal favorite?  (Is there a reason for this?) 
Vintage Candy Shop, Santa's Sweet Tooth, and Santa's Workshop.  Reason - all 3 of these drops were derived from actual sets we built in our studio.  We put a lot of hard work/thought into these drops and it's been wonderful to see our fan's putting them to great use.  


What are two products that have consistently been good sellers for you? 
By far the best selling product is the 60x80in Double Sided drop.  It's the best value as the customer gets to have 2 designs (of their choice) on 1 drop.  Minimizes storage space and maximizes ease of use during shoots.  Probably the best selling designs have been "Simple Vintage" and "Vintage Candy Shop".   Overall our best selling genre has been our Doors category.

Tell us a little more about yourself and what makes you who you are....    
We are married with 2 kid's (son 4 and daughter 6) and live in Carlsbad, CA.   We love traveling, taking pics, spending time with our kids, and anything to do with the beach.

So how awesome are they?  And guess what?  They are offering 20% OFF of their awesome line of products to all of our readers! 

Just go to http://www.babydreambackdrops.com/ and use coupon code "bphotoprops" during checkout for HUGE savings!!

Product Review and Giveaway: Sweet Pea Boutique

It's time for another fun review and giveaway and this week it's courtesy of Sweet Pea Boutique.  Trista is the amazing designer behind Sweet Pea and she specializes in Mommy-made items for little boys and girls.  Children's clothing, bow ties, headbands, blankets…the list goes on and on!

Here's a little more about Trista's adorable boutique:  Sweet Pea Boutique was inspired by and is named after my own little sweet pea, my daughter Kinsey. When Kinsey was born, I gave up my career in public relations to be a stay-at-home mom. Let's be honest, I was bored and needed something to keep myself busy. So I resurected the sewing skills my own mother taught me as a young girl and started making things for my own daughter. This blossomed into creating all kinds of adorable items for little ones. 

My creations are inspired by the concept of dressing little boys and girls like miniature versions of adults. I dress Kinsey "to the 9s" every day (my husband says I think she is a dress-up doll)! There's no need for little girls to wear babyish prints when they look adorable in bold fabrics and what little boy doesn't look dashing in a bow tie? 

I also make a couple of items for children with special needs. Kinsey is my inspiration for these items as well. Kinsey has Trisomy 18, or simply put, too much of chromosome 18. It's a miracle that she is here and growing and learning and doing new things every day! 

And guess what?  She's going to be giving one of our lucky readers their very own Sweet Pea Boutique Newborn Dress and Little Boy Bow tie (shown below)!!  

Awesome right?  Okay, so here is how you can enter to win…just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget…that's all there is to it!

Product Review and Giveaway: I DO Invitations By Michelle

It's time for another fun review and giveaway and this week it's courtesy of I DO Invitations By Michelle.  Michelle specializes in invitations for all of life's proudest moments.  Wedding Invitations including Save the Dates, Birth Announcements, Birthday Party Invites, DIY Party Printables, Bridal + Baby Shower Invitations, 
Holiday Photo Cards, Graduation Announcements, Thank You Notes, Sweets + Dessert Table Styling…the list goes on and on!

With the help from her supportive family, friends and devoted husband, I DO invitations by michelle began in July 2008. 

Here's a little more about Michelle and her awesome business:  "With my attention to detail, originality, and passion for the wedding business, I will help make your dreams become a reality. Helping people has always been my number one passion - the best part is I get to do that on a daily basis. My true love for creating invitations and other stationery began after my June 2006 wedding. I planned my wedding right down to the very last detail and I took it upon myself to be the "invitation creator" for many of my friends then on. I was always told "You should start your own business - you really have a special knack for creating invitations." As they say, the rest is history.

My love for party planning started immediately after my daughter, Camryn, was born {hence my etsy shop name "CAMRYNJOLEE"} and now have a new passion for styling dessert tables and planning fabulous parties. You can also catch me over on the A to Zebra Celebrations blog as a Party Features Blog Contributor.

My hubby, Ryan, is the amazing creator of the fabulous signs we sell. After Miss Cami is in bed at 8pm, he heads to the garage and I head to my computer and we work. It's not the most ideal situation but we love what we do and we do it all for her. "

How awesome are they?  I really admire Michelle and her amazing work.  She
 has been featured on such sites as Martha Stewart, Hostess with the Mostess, Style Me Pretty, iVillage, Cool Mom Picks, Kara's Party Ideas, Living Locurto, Tip Junkie, Pizzazzerie, Celebrations at Home, Project Nursery, Catch My Party, A to Zebra Celebrations, The Party Dress Magazine, Baby Lifestyles Magazine, LaunchHer, The Celebration Shoppe + Circle of Moms.  She can be found on her WebsiteFacebook and Etsy.  She recently sent me a customized Street sign and it's absolutely adorable!  Here are a few shots of the one she made for me……. 

And guess what?  She's going to be giving one of our lucky readers their very own choice of Street sign!!  How cool is that?  Customized in your choice of color and name!  Awesome right?  Okay, so here is how you can enter to win…just follow the instructions in the Rafflecopter widget…that's all there is to it!
