GIVEAWAY: My Emmy Baby Custom Personalized Fashions

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

When it came time to tell family and friends that we were expecting our second child, my husband and I decided that it would be fun to let Big Sister E spill the news by wearing a shirt declaring her future status as the older sibling. As my in-laws were coming to visit that weekend, we took a few days and searched the stores for something cute that would grab their attention while getting our point across.

Finding it to be a much harder task than we realized it would be, we finally picked out a pretty plain white shirt with the words Big Sister written across the front. Not very exciting and, unfortunately, not the cutest thing ever - particularly considering the price that we ended up paying for it. To top it off, when the grandparents arrived, my father-in-law didn't really get it. It took my mother-in-law really reading the words to finally ask, "Why does her shirt say big sister? Does that mean..." before we were able to celebrate with them.

No, the moment wasn't ruined or anything, it just wasn't as exciting as we had pictured. I think had Big Sister E been wearing something that was high quality or personalized or actually CUTE, it would have made a difference. There's no way that my father-in-law could have been confused if he had walked in to see this:

Now THAT is an adorable way to make an announcement.

What do you do when you have artistic skills, imagination and adore crafting fashionable things? Emily's love of creating personalized and creative gifts for children grew into something more when she had her own children (she has four gorgeous ones) and My Emmy Baby was created to share her talent and designs with the world.

The result? A site where you can choose from any one of the amazing existing styles and customize it exactly how you would like (size, name, colors for the shirt or the design, etc) or Emily will work with you to create your own unique, one-of-a-kind fashion. Is there a certain character, image or saying that would be perfect for your little one? You've come to the right place at My Emmy Baby.

I loved browsing through the Sample Designs shown, there were so many that were sweet or smart or funny or just simply really cute. However, it was hard to know where to even begin. There were multiple options for birthdays, newborns, twins, boys, girls, holidays, sports... you get the picture. And they all showcased clean lines, great colors and modern fonts that worked so well together. Plus, I thought it was great that your finished look can be on a onesie, toddler tee, youth tee or even in multiple sizes and colors of a long sleeved shirt.

As our choice of big sister shirt for Big Sister E turned out to be somewhat of a flop, I was immediately drawn to the Big/Little/Middle Sister or Brother designs offered on My Emmy Baby. After sorting through the different shapes and the matching or contrasting colors, I told Emily my favorites and, only a short time later, was rewarded with these:


The 100% combed cotton is soft and comfortable, the images are professionally heat pressed so there is no peeling and the quality has been evident from how well the designs have held up through multiple washings. I loved the way these shirts turned out so much that my daughters wore them on Christmas day to visit with family - and were a big hit!

My Emmy Baby is the site to go to for your next baby shower, birthday, holiday or event where a unique, custom-designed tee or onesie will amaze and delight both the parents and the child (Big Sister E loves pointing out her name and that her shirt declares that she is the big sister). Thanks to Emily's generosity, one of you will soon have a great gift or a very stylish child, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of onesie/tee from My Emmy Baby!
