Mompreneur Monday

Jacqueline De'Ath of Homeworks Etc Designs shares with us her story.

In 2002 I was expecting my first child.  I was so excited and I was definitely in nesting mode, trying to get the nursery decorated and complete.  I struggled to find the wall décor I was looking for.  Nothing caught my eye.  I was looking for décor that suited my style and interests (after all, I knew I was going to be spending a lot time there).  I wanted a space that was simple and timeless in design, and that could function and grow with my baby.  Read more>

 She Hearts It

She {Hearts} Homeworks Etc. - March 23, 2011

I think most children take pride in their own room at a certain time in their life. Maybe not at age 3 or 4… but eventually a kid will want his own space… a place to make his own. What better way to set his space in stone than a beautiful Name Plaque to hang on their bedroom door… or in a cool photo display in their rooms. I know for my children they love to see their names displayed around. It after all is one of the first words they even learn to spell!
