What Does The Fox Say?

We’ve all been hit hard by the YouTube sensation “What Does The Fox Say?” But kids in particular seem to be huge fans of the catchy tune. So when when I stumbled across a children’s book based on the viral video during a recent trip to Toys R Us, I knew I was way overdue for a fox-inspired finds post.

We’re always looking for new and upcoming Etsy shops to feature on our site — and we are super psyched to introduce you to our new favorite find, Kindertype.

retro nursery decor wall prints
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.

Inspired Ideas for a Stylish Life with Baby {10/1/2012}

Soup can pencil holders, a friendly front door idea and a girl toddler room to swoon over!

Campbell's Soup Can Pencil Holders from Young House Love

John and Sherry from Young House Love are always providing us with plenty of inspiration —and eye-candy!— for all thing DIY related. We especially love their projects for their daughter Clara. We’re currently crushing on these Andy Warhol-inspired Campell’s Tomato Soup can pencil holders. And to keep little fingers safe, Sherry even took the precaution to make/insert a cork liner. Clever mama!

Hello Front Door Decal from Etsy

A friendly front door greeting! There’s nothing more welcoming then coming home and having the door great you. I desperately want a Hello Decal ($8) from Create it. Go!.

Pretty in Pink and Purple Toddler Girl Bedroom

We’re big fans of Adrinka King‘s design sense. She recently revealed another one of her fabulous design projects, a peaceful yet playful toddler girl room, and it’s spectacular. Her fabric choices are flawless and really make the room. More images and room details available at ProjectNursery.com.

Inspired Ideas for a Stylish Life with Baby: 7/23/2012

A mustache find for baby, stylish kitchen inspiration and mama’s new must-have tote!

Mustaches continue to trend when it comes to all things baby and kid related—mustache bibs, mustache parties, you name it! We know, we know — they’re irresistible. If you want to add a little mustache lovin’ to your kiddos’ decor, check out these handmade mustache blankets we found on Etsy by Little Hip Squeaks.

I may not be the best cook, but I spend many hours a week in the kitchen preparing meals for my little one. And since I spend so much time there, I feel it’s important that the space is pleasant, functional and pretty. If a kitchen remodel is in your future, check out BHG.com for some inspiring ideas. Here’s one in particular I’m archiving for a future project. It uses glass plates as an alternative to the traditional tile backsplash. It’s sleek and easy to clean — and look how well it goes with the glass mosaic tile!

One of our favorite summer finds! We’re head-over-heels for the Juno totes by Deux Lux ($84-$99). They’re reversible—with eight color combinations to choose from—so basically they’re like two bags in one. Take the black/teal combo pictured above. You can spend all day running errands with the teal tote and then just flip it inside out to turn it into a black tote for your evening plans.

Inspired Ideas for a Stylish Life with Baby: 5/29/12

A home office idea, a hopscotch decal for the hallway, an organized closet space, a chevron outlet covers and a diy magazine display idea !

We love color. And we love this home office idea that incorporates lots of color into mama’s work space without going overboard—and without painting! This white room is vibrant with lots of bright, colorful accessories placed throughout the space. This is just one of many inspiring home office ideas from BHG.com.

A hopscotch floor decal?! Oh yeah! Home Made Lovely featured a house tour of Out of Alabaster blogger Lindsey’s home and the white hopscotch decal in the hallway made our jaws drop. Why didn’t we think of that? Get your very own Hopscotch Decal ($61) at yoox.com.

Home organization can sometimes seem like an impossible task—but Kristen of Peace, Love & Crafts makes it look easy. Armed with a few inexpensive canvas bins from Ikea and some felt, Kristen created these custom, labeled bins to keep all of her necessities organized.

Add some pop to your light switches and outlet covers! We’re indulging our chevron obsession once again with this Rainbow Chevron Switch Plate and Outlet Cover Set ($13) we found on Etsy.

Magazine covers are a great—and super inexpensive— way to add some life to your walls. Some people choose to frame their favorite covers but we’re loving this DIY magazine display idea by Stefanie of Ohhh… Mhhh… (found via Creature Comforts) using wire hangers.

Inspired Ideas for a Stylish Life with Baby: 4/30/12

A stylish and fun big boy room, a welcoming rainbow of colors for the home, a paper mache unicorn, a wooden name sign for baby, and a grocery store birthday party or play date idea!

A stylish and fun big boy room! Featured in the Dutch website 101woonideeen, this aviation/airplane themed bedroom has all the elements of a kids’ room that we love—it’s functional, stylish and space-savvy! With lots of creative details (like the chicken wire armoire doors and the toddler bed/desk) and a few unexpected items (like the yellow school chair and industrial lamp), this toddler room is sure to inspire.

A welcoming rainbow of colors! Give your front door a colorful facelift with this inspired wooden welcome mat idea for Lowe’s. This DIY mat is also perfect for renters, as it allows you to inject a little color and style to the exterior of your home without the “permanency” of other painting projects.

 A paper mache animal head tutorial! Lil Blue Boo is our new favorite site—and we discovered it thanks to this unicorn paper mache tutorial. Paper mache animal heads are “hot” right now, but what if you can’t afford to purchase one? Or what if you can’t find the animal you like? Make one!

A wooden name sign for the nursery! In our humble opinion, personalized items are always welcome in a nursery or toddler room. Check out this wooden name sign – in cursive ($60) from Etsy seller Decky Decor to add a personalized touch to your baby’s nursery. And these also make great baby gifts, don’t you think?

A grocery store birthday party or play date idea! A clever and creative little party idea for toddlers that love to pretend, this Grocery Store-themed party by Paper & Cake (featured on HWTM Blog) is one that you do NOT want to miss. And all the entire party printable collection—including the food labels—is available at the Paper & Cake shop for about $19!
