While I love making gifts for family and friends, I also adore finding unique items and helping out artists on Etsy. I met Sarah Bouvier of sweet lil’ you years ago at a hockey rink. She and her friend had season tickets for the Albany River Rats near by my season tickets. We would often chat before and after games. Years went by and suddenly I “bumped” back into Sarah online thanks to Twitter. I saw the amazing wedding that she planned via Facebook and was blown away with her creativity. Then, I watched as she started blogging about becoming a first time mother and being adopted. Her way with words in posts about her daughter, heading to Disney, and crafting always impress me. Still, there is more to Sarah.
While staying at home with her beautiful daughter Avery, Sarah has started an Etsy store called sweet lil’ you boutique featuring several different items that she makes. The first time I saw her personalized wood block pieces I feel in love. If you are not sure what I mean by these, check out some of her beautiful creations below.
Wedding gifts, gifts for a new home, or something special for a teacher. Sarah’s boutique has something for everyone, or she will work with you on whatever you are looking for. Here are some items that she has for the upcoming holiday season:
I have seen Sarah’s work in person. While she was brainstorming on possible items for a store, she sent us one of her examples that has already been gifted. I loved how the blocks were just the right size, able to be stacked differently, and were made to fit the personality of the people needed. Seriously, just look at this photo of one Sarah made for her own family. I think you may be able to figure out one of her favorite sporting teams.
So my question to you this week:
What would you love to have Sarah of sweet lil’ you boutique create for you and why? Yes, we are calling this pre-holiday brainstorming.
Disclosure: None – Sarah is a friend and I asked to feature her beautiful work on my blog. Friends support and toot the horn for other friends.
