Custom Photo Books

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012


It is time to take all of your fabulous summer photographs and create cool personalized photo books. You can’t let your cherished memories just hide in your phone forever! There are so many great options available to help you create a perfect book (or two!). If you have the time and the creativity, you can create fully customized books all on your own, or if you want a little help, many services offer an array of simple templates so all you need to do is select your photographs and they do all of the heavy lifting for you. Love that!


The samples pictured above are from the brand new photo books available at Tiny Prints using their ‘Kids Quotes‘ template. They have tons of templates to choose from – I am sure you will find one that captures your style and shows off your photographs.

You certainly don’t need me to tell you this – but yes – Photo Books make awesome gifts. Not sure what to get your parents or in-laws for Christmas? Without a doubt, the best gift I ever gave my father was a photo book full of images of my son visiting his grandfather’s home town. Two or three years have passed and he still keeps it right next to his bed.

Below is a list of some great services where you can go and create your own custom photo book. These all come recommended by me or my friends. I have also tried to track down as many promo codes, coupons and discounts as I could find too. Hope the savings help!

FabKids-3 Girls Active

Have you heard about FabKids? It’s an awesome new company started by parents, for parents. Every once in awhile I find a company that makes me wish I had a daughter and FabKids is one of those creative companies with great clothes for stylish girls that I wish I could shop from every month. So if you have a daughter – here is the scoop:  You fill out a simple style profile and every month they will recommend 3 piece, totally coordinated outfits for your daughter. The complete 3 piece outfits are only $39.95! Yep – only forty bucks for a complete outfit – love that!


So you are probably wondering who is behind the company… First of all – the designers have experience designing for some of my favorite children’s brands including BabyStyle and Tea Collection.  What I love is that they feel really modern and stylish, but they keep your girls looking like little girls.I am so impressed with the spirit behind the company. I immediately felt a connection to what they were saying. “We believe in celebrating every girl. The adventurous. The creative. The spirited. The spontaneous. The independent.”


I have been a huge, huge fan of Christina Applegate for a long time and I love it that she is bringing her style and spirit to FabKids. “FabKids is all about celebrating girls and empowering them to express their individuality through their own personal style in a way that builds confidence and lets them shine,” says mom and Creative Partner, Christina Applegate. “And like so many working moms, I’m always short on time. I love that FabKids makes it one-click easy to get a cute, wearable outfit – and at an affordable price!”

If our daughter is between 2-8 years old – you need to check out FabKids. I even have a special FabKids promo code for Sweet Peas & Stilettos readers – just enter “FIRST25” at check-out and you will receive $25 off your first order!

ThredUP Giveaway

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012


There is a new online clothing store for kids….. Not only is it a great place to shop for like new, gently used clothes – it is a really simple way to clean out your child’s closet and earn some extra cash (do I hear extra Christmas shopping money???) The name of the company is ThredUP. They are based in San Francisco but of course, thanks to the wonders of the internet, they are here to help parents all over. And best of all, Sweet Peas & Stilettos is giving away a 20$ gift certificate for FREE CLOTHES at ThredUp, which also includes free shipping. Just pop over to the Sweet Peas & Stilettos Facebook page, like us, and let me know you want to win. The prize will be awarded next week, on Wednesday the 22nd, so put your post up by midnight on the 21st to be eligible.


If you need someone to help you filter all of the items you can pop over to their stylist page where you can find a style that matches your child’s personality. It is almost like your own little store. It is a fun way to get ideas on how to pull the items together since you aren’t in an actual store with a sales person and mannequins around to inspire and guide you.

If you want to clean-out the closets, simply order one of the their bags and fill it up. Be sure to check the list of brands they accept and obviously don’t send them clothes with stains or rips. ThredUP is better than a typical consignment shop because you don’t have to wait for your items to sell before you get your money. They will assess the value and then you can cash out through PayPal. So easy!

So don’t forget – Sweet Peas & Stilettos is giving away a 20$ gift certificate for FREE CLOTHES at ThredUp. Just pop over to the Sweet Peas & Stilettos Facebook page right now and let me know you want to win. You have to ‘like’ Sweet Peas & Stilettos too of course…


Tea Collection SALE

Tea-collection-sale-boys-Cykel-Kalamari 5-Piece Set

All of my friends think I am totally crazy but I am actually sad that my son will be attending a school that has uniforms. I know it is supposed to make things “easy” for parents, but it is not easy for me. It is actually really hard for me to pass up all of the adorable back-to-school clothes available this season. Since I am not able to fill my son’s closet with all of these great clothes, I have volunteered to be the personal shopper for my friends. I can shop vicariously through them this year.

I just found out about a great back-to-school sale going on at Tea Collection that I wanted to share with all of you who actually get to go back-to-school shopping. Buy 3 select back to school separates and get the 4th free. And who doesn’t love FREE clothes – especially when they are cute and comfortable shirts and pants that both you and your kids will love? The offer is valid through Sunday, August 19th at 11:59 pm PST. And when you are shopping online, be sure to look for clothing that includes 3+1 symbol so you won’t be sad at checkout…. Promo Code: 3PLUS1

Thank You Notes 50% Off

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

love blooms thank you cards
There is an amazing sale TODAY ONLY at Tiny Prints & Wedding Paper Divassave 50% OFF all thank you note cards. That’s huge! Just use the promo code DOD0712 anytime between 9:00 am PST today through 8:00am PST tomorrow (Friday) to get this awesome deal.

And how cute is this wonderful Love Blooms thank you note card above designed by Jenny Romanski for Wedding Paper Divas?


I am usually not one to shop early for the holidays but today I am making an exception. Last year I bought personalized stationery and thank you note cards for a bunch of friends and family members for Christmas gifts. Note cards make such a great gift because every one needs them and they are really easy to wrap and mail to friends and family who are far away. They are great for people of every age too – from 5 years old to 105. Personalized gifts show you cared to make a little extra effort. And if we take advantage of the sale today we will all save lots of money. Love that!

I am sure you have a little girl on your list who would adore her own set of Hello Kitty note cards just like this one above…

Chrysanthemum thank you note cards

Here is one special tip – I love ordering a variety of cards for each person on my list. For my sister-in-law I ordered her some with just her name (you can do it informal with just a first name or use both, first and last), some that had her name and her husband’s name (ex. Pam & Patrick), and another set of family cards (The Marlborough Family). I actually bought the same variety of cards for myself too. I love having the mix of cards because that way I always have the perfect card for every occasion.  The other thing is that I always have a hard time just picking out one style so if you do a mix, it makes the whole decision making process that much easier because you don’t have to settle on just one design.

So shop at Tiny Prints with me today using promo code DOD0712 and we can all save 50%.
