Ikea High Chair: Blames High Chair Review

Monday, July 21, 2014

One thing I can't stand about baby items is the kitchyness of it all. So when I have the opportunity to purchase something that has clean lines and blends in with our furniture I take the leap quickly.  That brings us to our high chair search.  This weekend we went to Ikea and purchased these modern high chairs.  They are wooden and we went with the black choice.  The wood high chairs surprisingly do not take up much space and the price is awesome to boot.  When having to buy two of most things, purchases like high chairs gets expensive quickly.  These affordable high chair are the perfect price point for needing two.

I'm picking up the girls from grammy's in a few minutes.  I can't wait for B+B to try out their new chairs when they get home.  Check us out on instagram later where I'm sure we will have some interesting photos around dinner time tonight! ;)


Twin Nursery Inspiration

Friday, July 11, 2014

Over the next few weeks I will reveal bits and pieces of what makes up our twin nursery.  While pregnant one of the big baby room questions for me was trying to figure out how two babies plus all the baby stuff would fit in our tiny apartment.  We weren't planning to begin house hunting until Fall/Winter 2014 so our living situation would have to suffice for a year or so with two babies.

I spent a lot of time on Pinterest searching for small room nursery inspiration along with some "musts" in my mind.

  1. Everything could be easily transitioned when we moved
  2. No paint on the walls
  3. Didn't feel over crowded
  4. Not too "themey" I didn't want something that screamed "Disney" "Rain Forest" etc.  Although those ideas are great, there not my jam.
  5. Not too pink 
Below you will find my main inspirations.

Changes are coming!

Thursday, July 10, 2014

I'm so excited to announce that changes are coming soon to Her Joyful Studio.  I am leaving my full time job to focus solely on growing and developing Her Joyful Studio!  When I started Her Joyful Studio in May 2013 I never dreamed it would be so successful.  Especially when a month later I found out I was pregnant, and a month after that I found out I was pregnant with twins!  I had zero energy but knew working hard would make for a better life for my family. While on bed rest I spent my days working my day job with my computer on my lap and my nights spent processing orders - all from my bedroom.

The last month of my pregnancy I spent going to daily doctor's appointments.  And more often then not those appointments ended up with trips to the hospital. I even joked with the nurses I should start bringing my hot glue gun in my purse so I could be productive while being monitored for hours and sometimes days.


But let's cut to the chase.

What does this mean for you?

  • Faster Production Time! (Our current processing time is 3-5 business days, this will change to 1-3 business days!)
  • Updates to the blog!  I'm so excited to get more involved with the blogging community.  Expect to see topics regarding life, crafting, raising twins, being a new mom, product development and much more!
  • A more unified message: with updated branding and products (including a cohesive Fall 2014 line!)
  • More new items: one of my favorite things to do is develop and design new merch and I can't wait to dedicate more time to that!
  • More giveaways, partnerships and collaborations! Interested in collaborating with us?  Send us a message at herjoyfulstudio@gmail.com
Expect to see a slow roll-out over the next week with quicker production time beginning next Friday, July 18th!

Lastly, besides taking advantage of this bunny garland for Easter - Peter Cottontail is also a great baby shower decor item.  The cotton tails give this garland a little something extra.
