A Blogtastic Extravaganza Sponsor Spotlight: Lilacs & Lollipops

A Blogtastic Extravaganza

Just 13 more days until we kick off A Blogtastic Extravaganza (ABE3)! I cannot believe how time is flying. I feel like I was just wrapping Christmas gifts, and now we are almost halfway through the month of January! Time flies when you’re having fun and I have been having a blast preparing for A Blogtastic Extravaganza!

Today my Sponsor Spotlight is being shined on a fabulous Etsy shop that I discovered this last year called Lilacs & Lollipops. I am a huge fan of handmade product and feel that there is a lot of heart and soul that goes into handmade creations. The online handmade marketplace known as Etsy is a fabulous forum for everyday people to buy and sell handmade or vintage items.

Lilacs & Lollipops was established in the spring of 2008 by two sisters, Natalie & Lacey. This shop sells not only nursing covers, but a wide variety of chic accessories for motherhood. Their fabric choices are beautiful and their design is both sensible and stylish. They have the ability to create custom orders and to provide expedited shipping in case you are in a rush. If you have not had a chance to check them out please do so!

Q&A with the owners of Lilacs & Lollipops
Lilacs & Lollipops

Mom Mart: I read that Lilacs & Lollipops was established in the Spring of 2008, how did you come up with the name?
Lilacs & Lollipops:  We wanted a unique name and tried all different combinations but didn't really like what we were coming up with. We then decided we wanted Lollipops to be part of it and mulled over that for awhile until we came up with Lilacs and Lollipops. We think it is a good blend Lilacs more on the Mom side and Lollipops for the kiddos.
Mom Mart: How did you decide to make a business out of your designs?
Lilacs & Lollipops:  We began making the items for ourselves and some family members encouraged us to start selling them, so we decided to give it go.
Mom Mart: What is your favorite creation?
Lilacs & Lollipops:  We love them all but our nursing cover are definitely a must have.
Mom Mart: When do you find the time to create your chic accessories?
Lilacs & Lollipops:  We both have two kids and Lacey is expecting another one. They are our first priority, so we work on the business when they are down for naps or still asleep in the morning. We also have another lady that helps us sew to keep up with the orders.

Lilacs & Lollipops has been kind enough to donate the Apples and Pears Hideaway Nursing Cover to the Mom Mart “On the Go” prize package for A Blogtastic Extravaganza!

Apples and Pears Hideaway Nursing CoverApples and Pears Hideaway Nursing Cover

This a must have for all nursing and pumping moms! The neckline of the HideAway is rigid, allowing Mommy to maintain eye contact and easily view baby while nursing. An adjustable strap allows Mommy to modify the length of the neckline and find the most comfortable fit. All nursing covers are one size fits all, and are 100% cotton.

•There are times when you may want to breastfeed privately or when your baby may need to be covered to nurse without distraction. The nursing cover allows you to breastfeed discreetly at any time and in any place.

•Unlike blankets or burp cloths, the over the neck design holds the nursing cover in place so that you do not expose yourself while breastfeeding.

•The rigid 17 inch open-neck design enables mom to maintain eye contact while breast feeding and allows ventilation keeping baby cool.

•Folds up to conveniently fit into purses and diaper bags.

•Can also be used as lightweight cover that attaches to infant car seats and strollers, providing shade and shelter for your baby.

•Measures approximately 24" x 35", with an adjustable Overall Buckle neck strap.

• Terry Cloth Pocket
