Melody's First Birthday sporting an adorable birthday tee from the Polka Dot Tot Shop!

If you read my blog, way back in the day, you may remember my post about the Polka Dot Tot Shop. I was then and still am now quite impressed with  with all the uniquely fun items offered!  I  enjoy visiting from time to time just to see what new bright and colorful items will wow me next!

The Polka Dot Tot Shop offers lots of unique items for children and adults alike. This time last year my baby girl was just born and I was on a mission to find her some soft toys to play with.  My sister told me about Heather’s shop and without hesitation, I bought a cloth jingle ball and a set of cloth play blocks. I loved these items then and I still love them now. My daughter and I have had a wonderful time playing with the blocks and ball. This ball will always be special to me because she first uttered the word Ball when we were playing with it!

Heather, creator of the Polka Dot Tot Shop generously offered a one of a kind unique Birthday Appliqued shirt for me to review for my daughter’s first birthday.  I love this shirt! I was thrilled that Heather went the extra mile and added a butterfly to match my party theme! This shirt is too cute and defiantly like the blocks and ball, will be cherished for years to come.

Visiting the Polka Dot Tot shop is such a treat, you’ll find not only the blocks, balls, and Birthday shirts I mentioned but you also find;

  • Stylish Reusable Birthday banners
  • Appliqued onesies/shirts
  • FaBric CaRds
  • Easter Eggs

I’ve enjoyed getting to know Heather and have interviewed her for my Etsy meet and great!

1.Why did you decide to start doing this on etsy and how long have you been?
I started selling on DiapperSwappers in the WAHM forum and loved it and then moved to Etsy a few months later. I opened shop on Etsy Jan 1, 2008. So only a little over a year ago.

2. What do you enjoy the most when creating your products?
Oh, I love coming up with new designs. And of course buying fabric…I have a bit of a fabric addiction! HA!
3. Apart from creating things, what do you do?
I am a stay at home mom/family manager! I have 2 busy kids, a 2 yo girl and almost 8yo boy, that keep me very occupied!

4. What inspires you?
My children! I love coming up with new items for them to wear/play with! I also love beautiful fabrics and lots of color!

5.In five years you’d like to be…?
Doing the same thing really! I know it would be ideal to get busier but I like where I am now. I don’t want Etsy to become my job(even though it is really)…thats not as much fun as calling it my “hobby”! I guess in 5 yrs both of my kids will be in school so really I will have more time to dedicate to Etsy. I don’t want to go back to working outside of the home if I can help it! 😉
