Fresh designs and products  with a retro look, featuring beautiful typography, modern graphics and fresh colors are what define Kindertype style.

Owner and designer, Rachel Swanson, has a degree in biology but a passion for design — and just like most of us moms who run our own businesses, it all began with the birth of her child. What started as the desire to create the perfect birth announcement for her daughter turned into a thriving Etsy shop, Kindertype.

Take a look at this shop’s selection of nursery prints, custom birth announcements and unique designs ($18-$48 depending on print and size) at  kindertype.etsy.com.

Handmade Love: Crochet Finds for the Nursery

Handmade makes for the most sentiment-filled gifts. One of my favorite shower gifts was a handmade one. A college friend had her aunt crochet a large lavender blanket for me, which I used as a throw for my nursery glider — and to cuddle under during story time. So this got me thinking about other ways to incorporate crochet into your nursery decor. These are my favorite handmade crochet finds from Etsy:

1. Crochet Flower Garland (approx. $18) from My Crochet Shop 2. Crochet Fox Pillow ($50) from Peanut Butter Dynamite 3. Crochet Bunny in Purple ($25) from Henry St. Martin 4. Upcycled Crochet Rug Cherry Tree Cotton Rug ($150) from King Soleil 5. Crochet Floor Cushion ($61) from La Casa de Coto
