Naughty Rocks

In true holiday spirt, my children have been telling on each other to Santa. Many trips a day are made to the window as they yell out,

"Santa, better bring brother naughty rocks! Him's being bad!"

I'm not sure when they decided Coal was called naughty rocks, but it sure as stuck in our home.

Wishing everyone a happy holiday season...and I hope you don't wake up to find naughty rocks in your stockings!

Getting ready for the Holiday!

I love the Fall! As soon as the leaves start to turn the excitement of Hallowen, Thanksgiving and Christmas starts to set in. This is my favorite time of the year!
Warm sweaters, the pumpkin patch, family, Christmas carols and so much fun.
I feel like I get to relive my childhood again with my own children. They delight in the smallest things and see miracles in everyday occurances-such as slowly falling leaves.



All I ever wanted to do is become a mother. Sure, I've always loved painting and creating, but without a family it seemed...lonely.

I fell madly in love with my own children, the very moment looked at them. I was not prepared for how quickly I could adore this brand new being. Now that my kids are growing, I miss the sweet baby smell and afternoon cuddle naps. While I'm a bit sad they are moving on, I'm so proud of the individuals they are becoming-strong and opinionated,smart, caring.

Motherhood is hard, there are days I think-You wanted this? In the end, I would never be fulfilled with anything else. I'm a proud mama!

I'm proud of the work I've done and the creative personalities I'm guiding. I bought this pendant to remind myself that even through the daily trials- I love this. I love my family and everything that goes with it.

Creative Play

I've started adding aprons to my etsy shop.

My children love to pretend. They wear their apron's in the house. They wear their aprons at the grocery store. They wear their aprons in the yard. They pretend to be cooks, a princess, kittens, mommy, and scary monsters.

I think they are a fun toy which helps enhance creativity, and creative play.

Too many toys these days do all the playing for the children. The only action of the child is to watch. I say we take back the books, blocks, and dolls-which are not dressed like they walk the streets. Let our children be children, just a little while longer.

I've also starting to work on fabric toy blocks. Some really cute one's in the works for the holiday season.


My newest Obsession

I've recently become a vegan soap convert. I just can't get enough.

My newest favorite is from Shower Treat soap-Fresh cut Roses Olive Oil Soap.

Fantastic. The shop owner is super sweet and friendly too. Great customer service to be found here.

Since changing over from regular store soaps, I've found I have much softer skin-no itching. Being a mom, I've given up plenty of "extra's". I find the lovely scents give me a short break to relax, and pamper myself !

Fall is coming...

Just added my first Autumn item to the shop. Seems like this summer is flying by. I love the fall. Crisp air, the vibrant leaves-can't wait.

I've started offering my bibs in 3 pack bundles. They make great baby gifts. No worries about the wrong size, or season. Bibs are used year round-through the todddler years.
I love giving gifts that look beautiful, but are also very functional. I have some really great sets coming out for the holidays.


Alex Collection


Just added to the elegant, Alex collection. A sweet elegant print great for a little boy or girl. The fun geometric pattern will delight any child. Matcing bib also available.


What mediums do you enjoy working in most?

I love colorful, fun fabrics. Prints that excite me, texture-I only sell things that I would personally use, and love! I like to use 100% cotton, because I think it's important to use soft fabrics for new sensitive skin, and it's easy to care for.

What is a Kunklebaby anyways?

Where does the name of your shop come from?

My two children are very important to me. They are 12 months apart and have this super close relationship. When my oldest was two, they started creating and speaking their own language. Kunkle was one of their words. They used to tell me you could buy anything from the Kunkle Store-bread, toilet paper, even mermaids. My line started because of them and I knew the name needed to reflect that.
