Bugaboo Bear Review & Giveaway

I'm excited to be high-lighting this amazing Etsy shop, Bugaboo Bear Designs, today on Mom-a-Logues! 

Amanda is the owner and designer of Bugaboo Bear Designs and is a mother of two, one girl and one boy, and loves creating products for babies, children and their families.  She's a former Kindergarten teacher, and now a work-at-home mom.

She's been drawing her whole life and has always loved art.  When she was pregnant with her first child she couldn't wait to decorate her nursery and when her son was born she created art for his room, as well.  After that, she thought "why not create things for other kids' rooms?" And so, Bugaboo Bear Designs was born.  She started her shop in February, 2013 and absolutely loves what she does.  She takes great pride in the fact that all her work is hand-drawn, nothing digital!

I just love Amanda's collection of woodland themed drawings.  

They are hand drawn using prismacolor pencils on Strathmore paper.  

Amanda was so sweet to create the custom drawing for my daughters.  She wanted to make sure that it was something that they would both love, that they would display proudly in their room and something they'd treasure forever.  She asked me lots of questions about their interests and favorite colors and the theme of their bedroom.

..and this is what she came up with.

To say that the girls and I are in love with this drawing is an understatement.  Amanda did an exceptional job of designing and drawing this beautiful print.  She incorporated the girls' love for dance and their favorite colors perfectly!!  We are just so impressed and love the addition it's made to their bedroom.

Amanda also creates a beautiful collection of chalkboard drawings.

Be Thankful

Weekly Pregnancy Tracker
I LOVE these awesome chalkboard style pregnancy trackers.  

If you're looking for a fun way to countdown the weeks of your pregnancy - these Bugaboo Bear Designs chalkboard photo props are the way to go!  They are the perfect way to track each week in a special photo.  You can purchase the whole set from Amanda - all are handwritten using metallic marker on black card stock.  They are 8x10 in size and perfect for framing.  The banner embellishment can be made in either pink, green or blue.

Bugaboo Bear Designs is such a unique shop in that every design is hand-drawn, no digital printing at all.  Amanda has such an incredible talent and it's so very apparent that her pride and passion for her art shines through in each piece she creates.
