PAR1217COVER_hi-blog

OMG. I am seriously in shock that I just posted that photo up there. On a recent Saturday, we spent the morning at my studio being photographed for the COVER of Parents Magazine! I was pretty much like...."Um, are you sure you are asking the right person? Did you call the right number?" I am honored to have been included and to be joined by two of my favorite people ever—my girls, Ruby and Coco—on the cover. My husband was standing just off camera beaming with pride. Here's a little peak from behind-the-scenes at our shoot for the December issue out now...

a look back at our Oh Joy for Target collections... 9 Nov 2017

Oh Joy for Target

13 years ago, I set a goal to one day have a line at Target. At the time, I was working as a designer for Cynthia Rowley's Swell line (which was one of the very first designer collections at Target) back in 2004. After seeing pieces that I had helped to design in a Target store and witnessing the joy it brought to a complete stranger, I knew I wanted to do more of that someday. A ton of time passed and blood, sweat, and tears went into starting and building my business in 2005. Fast forward to 2014 and after pitching a collection to Target the year before, here I was launching my very first Oh Joy for Target collection.

As we finish up our current and last collections at Target, I thought it would be fun to take a trip down memory lane to see all of our collections over the past few years...

oh joy from 2005 to 2017... 22 Sep 2017

12 Years of Oh Joy!

This month, we celebrate 12 years of Oh Joy! When I started this blog (and my business) 12 years ago, I never expected to have a business that was so connected to a community of people through the Internet! I never thought I'd make real, live friends through it. I never thought I'd connect with people all over the world and get to share my vision with complete strangers. I never thought that it would give me the opportunity to create something from nothing and create a job I truly love doing every day.

In celebration, I'm looking back at the last 12 years to show how things have changed and evolved and grown (both personally and professionally) in the last decade. This is a long post (but a fun one). So I hope you'll hang out and read along...

And finally, three months later, it's done and I'm excited to share the images and process with you today! I worked with my talented friend Sarah Sherman Samuel to design the kitchen. She has such a modern and chic aesthetic, and I loved seeing how she brought her style and the Oh Joy style together into our new kitchen...

Oh Joy for Milk Snob

For those of you with babies or babies on the way, you'll be so excited to see our newest collaboration with Milk Snob! I've been a fan of these covers back when I was in my early baby/nursing days. They are so, so soft and double/triple as a car seat cover when baby is sleeping, a nursing cover for yourself, a grocery cart cover, and more. With the launch of our newest Oh Joy for Target nursery collection, we worked with Milk Snob to create two covers that match our new nursery bedding and accessories!
