"Hello, Amber! I know you're a busy lady but I just have to share this story with you.
This past August I was searching your site just for fun. That's when I saw it. The Pink Japanese Kawaii Blanket deer cherries skulls with fuchsia minky swirl. It was love at first site. I had fallen for other fabrics in the past but none had taken my breath away like this. I instantly posted it to my Facebook page with the caption, "This site makes me want another baby and all the disposable income in the world". I thought about buying it right then but thought I had better sleep on it. My daughter did already have a rockin' blanket by you.
The next morning I went to my mother's house. She asked me what I had posted to Facebook, "What the hell is a pink Japanese blah blah something something?". I pulled up my Facebook to show her the link to the blanket. That's when my heart broke a little. It had been sold. I hadn't noticed the red sold tag the night before. I spent the next few days searching the internet for the fabric. Nothing.
November 5th was my daughter's first birthday. My mother handed me a gift to help my daughter open. I pulled out the tissue paper to see the Pink Japanese Kawaii blanket sitting in the gift bag. "But? How? Did she make another one? Oh my god!!!!". My mother had bought it the night I posted it to Facebook and then played dumb the next day. She kept it a secret for months. The most beautiful blanket in the world is now mine, um, I mean my daughter's. Thank you so much! You're products are amazing and I cannot wait to collect more."

I'm sure you're not surprised when I say that this baby girl, Rozzlyn... is already totally spoiled. She has a so many outfits... I think Ill be hoping for poo-splosions just for an excuse to change her... She got a new crib & changing table, because well.. the old one has scratches on it ;) And all the high tech gadgetry we could ever need... like a MamaRoo & a fancy schmancy video monitor... but of all this awesomeness... I am so excited about my StellarCheri diaper bag... and my Sweet Monkey Tots wipes case!!! If you're a fan of us on Facebook... then its pretty likely you already saw me ranting about its awesomeness... but COME ON!!!! Its amazing... This is a rare and expensive Japanese fabric... and when I found it, I about had a heart attack. Back when I made the boy's quilts... I used this same print but in black as some of the squares... and some matching wall art. And now i have PINK! So I bought up as much as I could afford so I can put some into her bedding too... and of course, a matching wall art... and who knows what else... all I know is I am so amazingly thrilled so far with both of these companies and I don't even have them in my hands yet! I knew Cheri would kick out an amazing product... we have been working together for awhile now... and I have been a customer for even longer...
But like most people, I sometimes get nervous when trying new shops... ya never know when they will just blow your mind with awesomeness or let ya down... but I gotta say, my experience with nothing but AMAZING. Her products are worth EVERY penny. From the very beginning, her communication was prompt and she was SO SO helpful while I searched for the right print and combination... She has kept it constant contact sending preview files of fonts, letting me know the status of the order... and a sneak peek of the case before she emailed saying she shipped it off. I have been absolutely thrilled and I highly recommend shopping with either one of both of course. Both of these awesome companies take custom orders... and both of them make it super simple to put together the perfect set... they also have many fabrics to choose from if you don't have anything specific in mind... so PLEASE take a minute to stop by their etsy shops... Stellar Cheri is here... though remember, the style of bag you see above is the exclusive StellarCheri for RockerByeBaby design... and can only be found in our shop :) But still go check out all her other awesome goodies... and then Sweet Monkey Tots... Be sure to tell them RockerByeBaby sent ya - and if you order, come back and tell us what you got!
