Gifts That Girls Will Love!

Over the summer, I hosted a slumber party for my 9 year old’s birthday that resulted in accidentally conducting market research into the world of the 9 year old girl. PSA: if you have plans to get a group of tween girls together…don’t go light on the snacks. They need lots of snacks. Anyway, this incredibly giggly and late night experience gave me some insight that inspired my latest collection of illustrations and patterns!

Narwhals, Llamas and Unicorns FOREVER!

Introducing the Tween Girl Emoji Narwhal & Friends Print Collection…the name needs some serious work but the art prints are out in the world! My hand-illustrated collection features narwhals, unicorns and llamas, pandas, penguins and naturally, a Frappuccino drinking hippo. What more could a girl want? P.S. If your daughter/granddaughter is into sports AND adorable llamas etc, I have a cute new print coming your way soon so stay tuned! I LOVED sports growing up so I can’t leave my athletic girls out!

I rounded up some super fun gifts that, according to my recent research, are sure to delight and if you are a mama that likes a little bit of a “theme” then these will hit the spot.

Dinosaur Accessories and Decor

Introducing My New Dinosaur Collection!

I’ve had these sketches tucked away for a while now for this dinosaur series. I happened upon them in a creative mood recently so I turned them into full colored illustrations and patterns. My almost 4 year old son is into dinosaurs…and cars, super heroes and robots. He is all boy as some say. He has a whole collection of dinosaur figurines and as he came to see what I was working on while drawing lava on the volcano, he lit up with excitement. I’ve said it before, but my kids are some of my biggest inspiration as an artist and illustrator. I love creating things that make them smile.

Dinosaur Decor and Gift Ideas

I thought it would be fun to put together a collection of decor and gift ideas for the dinosaur loving children in your life. From dinosaur printable wall art and chore charts available in my Etsy shop for instant download to throw pillows and bedding, backpacks and wall decor in my Society6 shop, designing a cohesive dinosaur themed room just got easier! Seriously, the sky is the limit with shower curtains, clocks, furniture and floor cushions, beach towels and wooden prints and more…all available in multiple colorways! Hope your little one enjoys this collection as much as I enjoyed creating it!

Back to School Printables

bethany sandoval

The new school year is fast approaching. Ever since I was young, it has been one of my favorite times of year. A time for starting fresh as a student...new school supplies, new subjects, new clothes if you'd grown out of anything (I stopped growing at like 9 so this didn't really apply to me).

Back to school prints for their first day

Now as a mom, I get super geeked out and excited for my kids! I get to be the one to purchase new school clothes and supplies, I set up the fresh wall calendar to fill with all the school activities and assignment due dates. The back to school nerves and enthusiasm get real you guys. And like many, I enjoy the traditional first day of school photo op on that first day of the new school year.

First Day of Preschool

Ever since my oldest was in kindergarten, I have been creating our "First Day of" prints because they are fun, make photos super cute and help my older future self to actually remember what age/grade/year these photos are from (you're welcome future me).

First Day of School Pictures

And now, they are available for you! Each design has a First Day and Last Day print for each grade. So if you are preparing early for that chaotic first morning and want to print and frame some cute signs to make your photos instagram worthy, I've got you covered. Annnd if you are like me, and do it the night before or morning of, I got you girl, because all you need to do is to download and print (there are zero rules about having to have cute frames).

The Outer Space Print can be found here.

The Bella Blue Floral Wreath Print can be found here.

The Pink Floral Print Can be found here.

Hope these are fun and take one to-do off your list for this exciting back to school season!

Tools For Living The Mom-Life

Hey Mama! Maybe you are the kind of mom who has it all together, always has a meal idea up her sleeve, never forgets an appointment and never hides in the bathroom a little longer than is actually necessary to pee just to have a few quiet moments.

There are drop-offs and pick-ups, basketball practices, homework, laundry and potty-training and the list goes on.
