Litsy Designs was kind enough to send me a gorgeous hand-painted plaque ($38) with a firetruck, personalized for my son Benjamin’s 2nd birthday. Even the small details were adorable! Since my child is wild about firetrucks, I chose their version for him. The plaque has a bright red firetruck (with a number 2 because he turns 2 today!) on the light blue and medium blue striped background. His name is on top of the fire engine. I love the red grosgrain ribbon that will be used to hang it. Ben and my family love it! It will be the first thing we hang in his new bedroom (the baby will be going into his room). Thanks to Litsy Designs for giving Ben such a great birthday present!!
Owners Patsy Smith and Lisa Wojnovich, both moms with young children, teamed up in January 2005 to create their company. Their artwork has been featured on Grey’s Anatomy - they created 7 large canvases for the Pediatric Ward on the show.
The company creates plaques for girls – future fashionistas will love the shoe and purse plaques, as well as boys – the guys will love the dinosaurs and trains (as well as the firetruck one we were sent). You can also get one of their canvases for your child, check out their line of beautiful paintings. I loved their In the Garden Trio – three garden themed canvases, with a ladybug, a daisy and a butterfly, all hand-painted on 12 x 12 " canvases with a 1 1/2 painted edge, so you don’t have to frame them.
Need an idea for a baby gift? How about a personalized birth plaque ($50)? Hand-painted on a 7" square plaque and come in pink or blue. The child’s birth information is added on, with first and middle name, date of birth, height and weight, as well as their first initial in lower case in the center of the plaque. They also have darling plaques for the holidays, bathroom and playroom.
