Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway!

One of the biggest decisions Justin and I made about our nursery was in regards to the bedding. Before we even got pregnant, we thought we liked some of the things in baby stores, but when it actually came to picking out something for Everly's nursery, we realized we wanted something different. We chose to go with custom bedding and began searching on Etsy to find someone to make it. There are a lot of people who make custom baby bedding on Etsy, so I spent a good amount of time doing some research and comparing prices. Baby bedding is expensive, and custom bedding can be even more! When I came across Wendi's shop KatieBug Creativity on Etsy, we knew we had found the one. First of all, she works with one of the designer fabrics we were looking to use, Joel Dewberry. Also, even if you don't see the fabric you want in her shop, you can just contact her to work that out! It doesn't get much better than that! I think the deciding factor for us choosing this shop, however, was the price. She has so many different crib bedding packages and will create a custom package for you if you don't see one that fits your needs. For what you get in these bedding sets, there are no better prices on Etsy. Trust me, I searched! Plus, you can see some of these photos of her work, it is amazing!

I think what I like best about her shop is that it is custom. You can't find this anywhere else or in stores, and what parents don't want their baby to be unique? She offers so many other items in her shop as well including changing pad covers, pillows, curtains, and boppy pillow covers. She will even work with you to create a baby registry through her shop so that your friends and family can help you purchase the bedding you really want! 

Working with Wendi from KatieBug Creativity has been so great and that is why I am even more excited to announce our first giveaway on our blog! KatieBug Creativity has offered to make a custom item for one of our readers! You get the choice of either a custom changing pad cover or a custom boppy pillow cover!
