As my pregnancy progressed, I started imagining how I wanted the nursery to look like. While I shopped around and looked for some creative ideas, I shared my vision with Sophie. I wanted the nursery room to have a theme (of course!) but also have fun and creative items displayed in the room which I hope will be a reflection of my baby's personality.
Sophie then told me about Allison Smith, the owner and artist behind Bébé Koala, a custom art company which specializes in prints, portraits and inspiring visuals for kids. When I saw her custom designs, I immediately fell in love.
Sophie and I started following her work on social media. One day, to our surprise, Allison approached us asking about our event planning services for a potential client of hers. You should have seen our faces that day when we received the message from her. We were thrilled!
We were happy because Allison took notice of our work! How can I explain this - imagine you've been following this person you really admire for the work they do hoping that they'd notice you one day (like sending you a Facebook message or tweeting you) and they do! That's exactly how Sophie and I felt because we're both big fans of Bébé Koala!
We didn't hesitate to tell her that we wanted to meet up with her over coffee one day (duh! We're obsessed with coffee).
The three of us met and had a great time talking about what we love to do and hope to achieve with our respective business. It's so great to be connected with inspiring and ambitious women like Allison whose passion for her work can be felt through every single word that comes out of her.
Many ideas and projects came out of this meetup. There's one project in particular we think will please many of you! We can't wait to reveal it when the time comes. It will be a fun and creative gift from Bébé Koala. :)
In the meantime, check out Bébé Koala and stay connected with us to make sure you don't miss out on anything!
