lovely discoveries

My sil Katie just opened her very own etsy shop and asked me to help share the exciting news! Lovely Discoveries (her shop) is filled with clever gear created by a mom, for moms. Currently, her specialty is making some super unique nursing covers. She was so generous and made one of her awesome car organizers for us to try on our first family road trip to Wisconsin last weekend. {Just back from Jeff's sister's beautiful wedding...so much to share on that subject later!}

We learned early-on that Graham is not always a happy traveler--specifically when awake! Our game plan is to hop in the car and drive until we either a) run out of gas b) reach our destination or c) can no longer stand the incessant screaming in the back seat. So Katie's organizer was a lifesaver for the 6 looong hours over the river and through the woods. The perfect place for keeping pacifiers, snacks, toys, dipes+wipes, and even some mama entertainment within easy reach. An added bonus: I think this bright+busy fabric will be perfect for Graham's curious eyes one day when we flip his car seat to front-facing.

I'm going to check out her site now because we have an 8 hour trip to grandma's house and spend a lot of time in car! This would be perfect!! Thanks! :)

Hi Jess~
I love the way you write from your heart. I have been following your blog for a so long I feel like I know you. It's been so long I can't even remember how I happened upon it. Well, after years of lurking I decided to join in the fun! Stop by for a visit if you get a chance. I know your sweet boy keeps you very busy, but if you get a minute, take a peak.
Thanks for sharing your swell life with us. Keep the joy and inspiration coming!

Thanks so much for the kind words Jessica! Also, to anyone checking out the shop, while there are only 2 car organizers listed right now, I have fabrics to make more and will be working on that soon!!

I am still checking out all the blogs from the Bliss party at Artsy Mama and so glad to find yours! I love the car organizer too and my kids are big enough to handle the car trips, but they just look soooo handy :)
