{Sweet Arts Design} Review & GIVEAWAY! *CLOSED*

With a background as a graphic designer in Seattle for 14 years, you can easily see why the creator of Sweet Arts Design is so successful in her children's gifts business. In an effort to become a stay-at-home-Mom, she took her expertise in her field and utilized it to bring creative and personalized gifts for children to the rest of us {lucky for us!}.

So what does Sweet Arts Design offer? Well, everything from books & prints to clothing & totebags. And the real beauty of it all? You can personalize them. And by "personalize," I mean, not only picking your own colors, fonts and designs, but also adding your child's name to them.

So we received the Sweet Arts Design personalized alphabet book for our little guy recently. And I just gotta say at the beginning ~ what an absolutely beautiful keepsake to give as a baby shower or birthday present! The book goes through the entire alphabet with their beautiful original designs, with one page asking, "What starts with the letter B?" and the next page answering, "A balloon that floats high in the sky," for example. And on the first page is the letter, very largely printed, and on the corresponding page is the picture of the balloon. The colors are vibrant and rich, and the patterns are beautiful. And by "patterns," I mean that the pictures and letters are not just colored solid colors, but instead layered {collage-like} with different patterns in colors that coordinate beautifully. And to top it all off, your child's name and initial are put not only on the front of the book but also on the page your child's name starts with {so "Sophie" would be on the "S" page, for example}. You also get to select the color & design for the book cover, whether you'd like it bilingual {Spanish, Italian & French are available along with English) as well as whether you'd like a soft or hard cover.


Needless to say, we love the book, and as I said before, I think it makes a very special keepsake to be treasured a long time. I think you're definitely going to get the "Awww, how adorable!" factor if you give this at the next baby shower you attend! Additionally, the book was shipped and packaged in tissue paper with coordinating ribbon, and wrapped in a clear cellophane sleeve, making it ready for gift-giving upon receipt.

I am also a huge fan of their "Help Our Children" prints that give $5 of each sale to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. These special prints are available for just $15.95 and are sized 11x14 and printed on acid-free white cover stock. There are over 24 of these designs to choose from ~ one of my favorites being this adorable butterfly print!

BUY IT! Visit Sweet Arts Design to purchase your own personalized goodies! Choose from items such as their alphabet book, birth print, cards or onesies! Get 15% off one personalized product with code "adamsblankie," good through March!

WIN IT! Sweet Arts Design is going to be giving one lucky Haute Tot & Baby Couture reader a FREE personalized softcover alphabet book ($29.95 value) of their own! {Open to US residents only}.

I would like the tote bag w/ a big pink "E", an elephant, and "Elizabeth" on it. That would be great to "tote" around all of my little girl's snacks/toys that we take to her brothers' sports practices!

I think a modern print would be nice. Perhaps an anchor as I love anything nautical.

I would love to make a tote bag for each of my children. I would customize it with their name and print. This would be so useful on Wednesday nights when they go to Sparks and Cubbies at church. It could carry their Bibles, workbooks and any crafts they create. My almost 2yr old could carry her favorite babies and toys in it. I would love to win an alphabet book for her and give it to her on her 2nd birthday in April! Thanks for the great giveaway!
