Squishy Cheeks Designs Review & Giveaway!!

It is with great honor and pleasure to feature Squishy Cheeks Designs on Mom-a-Logues.
Jenn, the lovely owner is not only super talented, but she is also one of my fellow MN blogger friends.

I have admired her work for a long time and was beyond thrilled when she asked me to showcase her shop here - little did she know I had already planned to surprise her with a shout out.

"I am a mother and wife, a lover of all things handmade, and a woman who believes the glass is half full.  Squishy Cheeks Designs is my creative outlet, and a way for me to share my love of handmade with others.

I feel very fortunate to have grown up in a home with such a strong sense of doing and making.  I can remember at a very young age, standing on a chair at the kitchen counter, helping my mom make oatmeal chocolate chip cookies or sitting at the ding room table, learning how to thread a sewing machine and wind a bobbin.  It was with my dad's expert carpentry guidance that I learned how to swing a hammer and how to safely use a circular saw.  For our family, the making was just as satisfying as the finished product.

It was that sense of making and a strong desire to create that inspired me to start Squishy Cheeks Designs.  I completely love what I do and have embraced this crazy, unpredictable journey.  Squishy Cheeks Designs has evolved from a casual hobby to a part time business and one day I hope to make my passion my full time 'job'.  Each item you find in my shop is made with my own two hands with thoughtfulness and attention to detail.  I would not make something I do not truly love.  I feel blessed to be able to do what I love and am so thankful for being able to share that with you.  
Thank you for supporting handmade!"

Jenn creates beautifully handmade one-of-a-kind items for baby and toddler as well as charming goodies for mommy!
Pocket Full Of Posies Crossover Dress/Tunic

My girls and I have been a huge fan of this pinafore/crossover style top.  We love that it's versatile to wear alone in the summer or over a long sleeved shirt in the cooler months.  

The crossover style is so much fun and offers a playful look as well as a comfortable feel.

Backside of Crossover Top
Jenn offers many unique and high-quality fabrics, but if you see a design that you love but prefer a different color or pattern, she is very welcoming of custom orders.

Baby Pom Pom Hat
Temperatures dropped to a high of only 20 today in the Twin Cities.  The reality of winter is upon us and we need to make sure our littles are extra warm.

Jenn offers trendy styles of crotchet hats and a variety of color options for both boys and girls.

She uses a premium cotton-acrylic yarn blend which offers a moderate stretch for growth.  

Baby Blue Knit Point Hat with Grey Tassel
I just love this little hat - the color, the design - everything.  It's a whimsical piece that is perfect for your little guy - a photo prop, or every day wear!

Turquoise Beaded Bar Necklace
Feminine, delicate and simple - this would make a fantastic Christmas gift for that special friend, or even yourself.  Hey, we all need to treat ourselves every once in awhile, too, right?

Jenn was extra generous for surprising the girls with a few goodies from her shop.

How cute are these scarves?

Of course, my girls love them because they are absolutely adorable (and so do I!) - but, I adore them for the warmth they are going to provide them this winter.  Cute and functional - I love it!

They are super soft and provide warmth and coziness around their necks and faces.  They fit perfect over or under their winter coats!

We love the crotchet flowers on the front and the large wooden button center.

Jenn does phenomenal work - my girls are so grateful for the opportunity to wear her product!

Jenn loves creating, she's inspired daily and seek out every spare moment to make pretty things....just because.  

I encourage you all to check out Squishy Cheeks Designs and follow along with Jenn on her blog, too!
