One of my favorite online shops to peruse is The Wishing Elephant. I love her handcrafted onesies and clever costumes that she makes for little ones. Knox's Wishing Elephant collection is growing quickly, and I'd have to say my favorite is a two-way tie between the Jackalope and Groucho glasses. The little gnome is a close third. Carolyn's shop is one to watch, for sure! It has been so fun to watch her business grow.
To be honest, sometimes I just look around my studio and wonder - how the heck did this happen? I started The Wishing Elephant in 2009 when my son was just three months old. My very first design was the Groucho (Knox's fav?). When my second baby was six months old, I was asked to be on The Martha Stewart Show with my daughter's sushi costume. Things got a little wild after that! Yes, Martha is awesome. No, she wasn't mean to me. She did call my daughter a boy (about 3 times), but I was too nervous to care!

Enough about Martha! If you want to catch a glimpse of my kiddos, you'll see them modeling my goods in the shop and covered in ice cream on my Instagram feed. Look on Etsy for my giggle worthy clothes for babies and toddlers. This time of year my shop fills up with simple, comfortable and awesome costumes. I think your kids should look amazing AND be comfy (Yes, that can happen). Remember when your mom used to make your costumes? Well, this is the best of both worlds - a handmade costume made by someone else (ahem, me). If you peek in this month's EveryDay with Rachel Ray, you'll see our lederhosen onesie on page 102! Woot, woot!
