After owning and operating a children's store in Manhattan Beach named Sprout for five years, I became very knowledgeable on the ins and outs of children's products and nursery design. I loved going to work every day to help people design their dream nurseries and find the perfect baby gift. Sadly we decided to close the store in February and ever since then I have felt a void in my life. Even with the birth of my son in February, I found myself e-mailing friends daily to help them design their nurseries. After searching through multiple design websites, blogs, and magazines always in search of what is new in the nursery marketplace, I decided to start this blog to share my knowledge and ideas with fellow moms and designers. I hope you enjoy!
