We have been working SO hard on Baby Cruz’s nursery and can’t wait to show you it all in print 3 but here is a little peek into his nursery and where I spend most of my time!

I am thrilled to share Susan Petersen’s hip moccasin company, Freshly Picked, as our featured workspace of the day! If you aren’t familiar with the fashionable children’s moccasins I highly recommend you check them out. My Jessica owns two pairs and they rarely leave her feet. Each pair of moccasins, no matter who they are being made for, are made with care, perfection and a love for the little feet that will eventually fill them.
We asked owner, Susan Petersen, a few questions and here’s what she had to say.
Do you feel that your workspace is reflective of your personality?
Your business has turned into quite a success! How do you balance work and motherhood?
Each season you are turning to new colors and tones for your moccasins, what inspires your designs?
When you were a child what did you dream of becoming when you grew up?
Susan, thank you for sharing your creative workspace and a little insight into what makes Freshly Picked such a unique company!

I finally had enough strength to go upstairs and show Cruz his nursery. It’s a fun mix of colors, vintage and modern things I love and of coarse gifts from people that love Cruz as much as we do! We will have more pictures in Print 3 coming out soon!
When Cruz isn’t chilling with mama he is usually hanging out in his big brother’s room! Details of this room will be in print 3 also!
As you can imagine it has been pretty busy around my house with the new addition. I am enjoying the little things with this one. Looking at every crease on his skin as he’s feeding, enjoying the smell of his skin and listening to every little
sound he makes. Babies are magical!
Cruz was born September 12 and was a little thing! 6 pounds 4 ounces of love! Check out our instagram for more images
Our little babiekin loves when we are reading books together. Gabriel never sits still for a second, but when it’s reading time he can sit still longer than a half an hour. Reading books is really a daily activity in our home. We have regular times to read, especially before naps and bedtime. This all started when Gabriel was only 6 months old. My older sister (she’s a teacher) told me that reading books is one of the best ways to learn a language. In combination with the wish to create a bedtime routine for Gabriel, we started reading books together.
But the most important thing is that we always having so much fun when we read books together. So we created his own little “library” in his room on his own bookshelf. We have a wide variety of books and we let Gabriel participate as much as possible. He picks his own books he wants to read, we let him to finish the sentence, read the pictures etc.
Is reading books a daily activity in your home too?
Today, we are sharing little Ruby’s playful room. The clean simple Scandinavian style is blended with tiny pops of color and neon pinks to create an ideal room for a little girl. Tiny toys are tucked away and propped up to welcome each day with a whimsical start.
This room is just calling for little ones to come play! Thank you, Claire, for sharing Ruby’s room. If only we lived closer we could have a play date!
Today we are featuring Courtney’s creative workspace, which is quietly tucked away in the corner of her London home. Courtney happens to be one of the faces behind Babyccino Kids, a unique site dedicated to the modern family. Her voice plays an active roll in the online community and her personality shines through in snippets of her life that she shares on Instagram. Make sure to stop by and say hello. You will instantly fall in love with her family and photos!
Here are some questions we asked Courtney:
You’re one of the faces behind Babyccino Kids, can you tell us a little bit about what you do.
Do you feel that your workspace properly reflects your personality?
If you could be any where in the world right now where would you be?
Is there a person in your career who really made a difference or influenced you in any way?
Thank you Courtney for sharing your space with Babiekins!
Ginny of Chasing Sunshine sent over these great photos of her 4-year-old daughter’s room. We’re really digging the color scheme and overall vibe! It’s a room that will really grow with her, don’t you think?
Ginny writes, “Addison is the ultimate girly girl with a love for art, imaginative play and superheroes. I knew that I wanted to create a space that would reflect and incorporate this. It is colorful, whimsical and made just for her. I spent time filling it with things that I put love into. Every nook has a hands on activity where she can play and flourish. It’s a place to dress up, hideaway and read a book, draw, cook a pretend meal or snuggle — her space!”
Today’s inspiring workspace is from Casey Leigh, a hands on mother, artist, photographer, writer and all around creative soul. Casey shares snippets of her life, her thoughts and her art over on her blog Casey Leigh. I highly encourage you to grab a cup of coffee or tea, a quiet corner and settle down for a good read with her touching words and stunning photographs.
We asked Casey a few questions and here are her answsers.
What does your workspace/ your office say about you?
What do you want people to take away from your art?
Who are your heroes?
Thank you Casey for sharing your creative workspace!
