Belinda Lee Designs

“My most popular designs are custom Family Trees perfect for Mother’s Day, personalized Birth Announcement subway art for super special new baby gifts and Wedding and Anniversary Subway Art to celebrate your favorite couple.”

“As part of my design process, I partner with you to develop a digital proof so you can visualize your keepsake with its custom details and colors. Recently, I added digital editing software to my design toolkit to help create more realistic proofs. This step takes away a lot of the mystery and uncertainty of commissioning a truly custom item.”


Brooks Boutique

“At Brooks Boutique we carry gifts geared towards babies and adults, as well as home decor. Check out our Hairbows, Baby bibs and burp cloths, Passport Covers, Camera Strap Covers, ID Badge Reels, Plastic Bag Holders, Snack Bags, Headbands, Bookmarks and much more.”


Cool Mama Crafts

“I teach art lessons and birthday parties throughout the Raleigh area.  When I am not teaching I am creating my own art which largely includes painting mixed media whimsical portraits.  I love to combine my faces with inspirational quotes to make unique, edgy, and uplifting posters and prints for girls of all ages.  These can all be found on my Cool Mama Crafts etsy shop!”


Emma Catarino Designs

“I’ve always loved art. As a young girl, I would draw, paint, and use just about anything laying around to make something new. Growing up, I continued studying art, but never imagined it could become my career.”

“Art and design have always been a passion, and I translate that love and enthusiasm into my work on Emma Catarino Designs. I strive to create unique and effective pieces every time that will help my clients increase their revenue. I am lucky to be able to do what I love, and the satisfaction I feel directly translates into quality work.”


Hedoe Precious Paper

“We’re two sisters that love throwing parties, we could just never quite find exactly what we were looking for when it came to invites, so we started creating them ourselves. At Hedoe Precious Paper we specialize in personalized paper products. We have a modern vibe with many colorful prints, patterns and monograms to choose from. We love creating customized products, so please contact us with what you have in mind.”


Leah Marie Photography + Stationery

“I offer a creative, candid and traditional style, which enables me to capture the unique personality of each couple. I go out of my way to exceed your expectations, presenting you with a very personal and beautiful set of images. One that will always tell every detail of your story perfectly.”

“Area(s) of expertise: Weddings, Engagements, Maternity, Portraits, Family, Children, Graduations, Landscape”

“I hope you will find items that will add a touch whimsy and charm to your home. At Piecefully Home I create items I love and would be proud to display in my own home.”

“I create and design everything for the home. There are fun home accessories, such as pillows, artwork, and quilts. I also offer utilitarian items like aprons, dish towels, and cloth napkins. Nearly all of my items are one of a kind making it extra special to own.”


Smiling Elephant Jewelry Studio

“Being a mom is one of the highest salaried jobs since the payment is pure love. Show some love with a one-of-a-kind design featuring old world trade beads, artifacts and beautiful gemstones from Smiling Elephant Jewelry Studio. Each piece reflects the spiritual in something vintage or the stunning in our natural world. My aesthetic embodies the strength of all the hands that have touched vintage objects and taken years to gather energy. That energy moves from the maker to the wearer to transmit love and joy and strength. I have created a series of vintage crosses and hands of protection that represent blessings, power and strength.”

“To adorn is a reflection of the heart. It is an expression of love, a hope to define ourselves. My shop is full of earrings, necklaces and bracelets sharing the love of nature and authentic beauty.”

“Smiling Elephant Jewelry Studio creates talismans of meaning. Women who wear my jewelry share a spirited life and believe in the power of happy.”
