Every day I swear I love my daughter just a little bit more…which I always think is impossible. Whether its after she has blown me an extra kiss as I’m leaving her at baby school, or she’s cuddled up next to me whispering “snug as a bug in a rug” before bedtime, my heart seems to swell. Are you looking for a Love Bug shirt for your little one? Check out this adorable love bug themed shirt by Magnolia Blue South. They are a local Etsy shop who custom designed a PERFECT shirt for Annabelle. Complete with heart patches on the elbows and Love Bug emblazoned across the front, the Valentine’s Day themed toddler shirt could not be more adorable.
Magnolia Blue South is a new Etsy shop with a variety of personalized and unique handmade items to offer (and lots more to come!). Shop owner, Rachel, is actually from Georgia and coincidentally used to work at my school! I found her shop before I ever knew we had quite a bit in common. She is wonderful to work with and has so many wonderful ideas for her store. Here is how Rachel started her shop:
I love crafting! It doesn’t matter what’s being made, how you do it, or materials needed, I’m ready to craft the day away. As a kid, nothing excited me more than a pair of scissors and glue or art projects with my aunt. I was the kid that watched reruns of The Carol Duvall craft show during the summer and found things around the house to use in my next creation.
Fast forward to today and my love of crafting has turned into a new Etsy store, Magnolia Blue South. It began a few months back when my husband upgraded my crafting toolkit with a new vinyl cutter. My beloved hobby quickly turned into a budding side business as friends and family began requesting custom monogrammed creations for themselves and loved ones. Insert my good friend, Laura Crittenden, who also shares the creative crafting spirit and love for monograms, and our Etsy store was born! Together, we create monogrammed items such as tumblers, glasses, pom pom jersey shirts, and onesies all with a touch of southern flare! We also love custom orders so send them our way!
One of my favorite parts about Annabelle’s shirt is that while it may be Valentine’s Day themed, it can be worn year round. Made out of a soft long sleeved top and red glittery vinyl, the only special care the shirt needs is to be washed inside out. Oh and perhaps a bib to cover the cuteness while eating. Annabelle always finds a way to stain her shirts within minutes of putting them on – but don’t all kids?
