This impact resistant, flexible hard shell case snaps onto the back of the iPad 2 or 3 and is fully compatible with the Smart Cover (available through Apple). Access to all ports and functions - compatible with the 3rd Generation iPad (March 2012 release).

Baby Gifts

We've been catching up on baby gifts around here and wanted to share what we designed. Maybe it's the fact that I have 2 boys, so I LOVE to play with girly colors! We used our "rugby stripe" - it seems to make text pop on our plates.

We love to give gifts to the new baby AND big siblings - it makes everyone feel included. And who wouldn't love a personalized plate for the dinner table?!
