Hey Moms. I know time is precious when you have one or more lil’ munchkins running around so I thought I’d save you some time and do a round-up of some super cute and affordable decor items for the kiddos.

Etsy is such an excellent source for access to fresh, creative, inspiring, handmade items and art. If you aren’t a regular already, I hope this post will inspire you to browse the online market-space and sign up for an account.

3. Pillow – Baby Pink and White Zebra Print ($35.00 USD) by MiCasaBella

4.  Print – You are so loved ($8.00 USD) by  jessgonacha

5.  Pom poms –  ($4.00 USD) by orangekisses …..(psst- you can totally make these yourself, just Google it!)

As a child, panda bears were my “favourite animal”. I had stuffed animals, posters, and books galore.  Remember when we used to write speeches in elementary school?  The only year I enjoyed doing that dreaded task was the year I wrote about pandas.  Many years later, they still top my list of fav animals.  What’s not to love?  Pandas are just so darn cute and [presumably] cuddly. And black and white – so chic!  Every time I see a fabulous panda print I ache to buy it, but at the risk of having a panda-filled home I haven’t indulged (yet).

Here are a couple panda prints I’ve been eying lately….

This last one isn’t a print but a letterpress card. How cute would this be for a baby card?
