**Update: Laken & Lila Etsy Shop Review and Giveaway (Skirt Giveaway added)


Inspiration comes from many different places.  When looking through some Etsy shops I came across a truly adorable shop that really inspired my creative side.  Once I saw some of the products made by Heather from Laken & Lila, I fell in love.  These outfits are just so cute and unique that I had to get in touch with the owner.  I was so happy to have received a response from Heather and a follow up to do a review of her products.

Heather's creative side started when she was very young, she remembers making little dolls that looked like snowman when she was only 6 or 7.  Like me she is a stay at home mom of a little boy.  She turned her passion for children and for the arts and made her hobby into a business, and thank God for that!

Laken & Lila is named after her son, Laken, and the hope for a girl one day...Lila. 

When I received a shirt from Laken & Lila I was very impressed with the quality of the product.  The shirt itself was made from a very soft cotton.  After looking at the seams that were sewn I was even more impressed.  I always worry about how the seams will rub against my son and f they will be uncomfortable.  I didn't have to worry about this with his new shirt.  The craftmanship is truly superb.  The shirt I received was a t shirt in size 18 months.  It fit perfect to size and when I washed and dried it I had no shrinking.  The felt stood up well to the wash. The shirt had a blue birdie on it, with a red "button" eye.  I received many compliments when my son wore it to our playgroup.  I had a little pulling at the top of the felt after the wash, but it was easy to smooth down and did not affect the look of the shirt.


In all honesty, I highly suggest a stop at Laken & Lila Etsy Shop.  Right now, if you become a fan of the shop's facebook fan page you can receive free shipping on your order and then you will receive a coupon for 20% off and free shipping on your future orders from Laken and Lila.  I really hope you can stop by, and even drop Heather a note!

In addition, Heather is offering one of our readers a skirt, under 21 dollars, of the winners choice!  Here are some rules to enter:
