As a mother and business owner, I love learning about and supporting small companies that are owned and operated by other moms. I recently discovered Julia Staite, the most adorable line of homeware, kidswear, stationery, and toys. 

Julia, the owner and designer, has two young daughters and lives and works out of her home in Epping, England ("a small town in the middle of a forest"). Her products feature her original illustrations and animal characters, and she often uses screen printing and block printing to make each piece unique.

I love the playful, handmade feel of these items. I can't wait to use them in a clients' nursery or playroom. Too cute.
