Good morning and happy Friday, my friends! This week has been ca-razy busy, eventful (Jack has a TOOTH) and enjoyable nonetheless, but I’m popping in real quick to tell you about a super cute Etsy shop called Little Bear Print Co.
Meet Max and Marley, the owners of Little Bear Print Co. They are high school sweethearts, first time parents (is their daughter not the cutest?!) and budding entrepreneurs. I’ve known Max and Marley since high school when Max and my brother were both in that we’re-in-emo-screamo-bands phase 😉 Max and Marley also both graduated from Longwood, so we’re basically the same people.
Anyway, back to the shop! I love the chalkboard look that Max creates, and I was super pumped when he offered to make me a custom print for Jack’s nursery (which, come to think of it, I should show you guys what that looks like.)
Max took the time to figure out the color scheme of the nursery and listened to my big dreams of creating a gallery wall above Jack’s dresser.
I’m a sucker for a good quote and was teetering on the edge of going with a Dr. Seuss favorite, but Cory and I agreed that the Willy Wonka quote we chose resonated with the both of us. One of my deepest life mottos is “don’t take yourself too seriously – no one else does.” We want to instill within Jack a playful nature and the ability to always laugh at himself.
Max and Marley so graciously offered me a coupon to share with you guys. If you use the code LUNCHBOX, you get $5 off your first print! They’re also running an Instagram contest, and they’ll be giving away a free print once they hit 100 followers, so go ahead and give them a follow!
Do you have any favorite quotes?
Another favorite of mine is “always be a first rate version of yourself, instead of a second rate version of someone else.”
