Can you believe it's already time to start thinking about the winter holidays? Sure, it's still a little early, but we can't wait any longer to share our new Christmas designs for The Land of Nod!!! We get so excited thinking that these Christmas pieces could become a part of your collection of keepsakes that come out year after year and make you smile. We designed lots of fun ornaments! We love that you can personalize your tree, gifts or stockings with little wooden versions of your family members (including pets) using the Christmas Company Ornaments. Then, the possibilities are endless with the Color Dipped Letter Ornaments... from doing initials on stockings to spelling favorite words! We're a little excited about those if you can't tell!  Then, we were so thrilled to design an advent calendar, tree skirt, stockings and the coziest flannel bedding that works for adults AND kids! So, we sure hope you find something that will add a little more fun to your holidays! We had a total blast designing it, and as always love designing for The Land of Nod Dream come true!

A Day in our crazy lives!

Ampersand Design Studio

Today, we're really proud to be featured over on the KC Moms Blog as one (well, make that two) of Kansas City's "Mompreneurs" ! There are a lot of us out there. Mothers who juggle raising a family and either starting or running a business at the same time. We always love hearing about how other women make it work, how they got started, and what drives them to keep going. So, we're really honored to be able to answer some of those questions ourselves! It's a crazy world, that's for sure, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Over on the KC Moms Blog, there's a full interview featuring what a day in our lives actually looks like, what drives us and we talk a bit about that magic word, "balance".
We were SO lucky to have Allison, of Allison Corrin Photography, stop by our studio in the KC Crossroads for a full interview AND photo session. Allison, a fellow mompreneur, and mother of FOUR, could not have been sweeter, and more patient. We sort of just wanted her to hang out there with us all day! She is such a talented photographer and was really able to capture what our day to day looks like (granted, we're usually wearing a lot less make-up and flip-flops)! So, huge thanks to Allison for putting this all together! Make sure to check out her website and blog to see her beautiful work and more images from our shoot with her.
Also, if you aren't already familiar with the KC Moms Blog and you're a mom in KC....come on now, start following them immediately for intelligent articles, real-world mom advice, and all kinds of inspiring stories and tips! They're on facebook and twitter, too!
One more thing, we are just the first of six in the "Mompreneur" Series! So make sure to find out about these awesome KC mompreneurs, too! Here are the dates you'll find them on the KC Moms Blog: 8/15 Ampersand Design Studio (that's us, but you already knew that), 8/22 The Yellow Peony, 8/29 Modern Makers, 9/5 SwimZip, 9/12 BadSeed, 9/22 The Busy Mom Cupcakes
