A Facelift!

Same great site, same great products, but sporting a new look! The super talented, Summer, owner of, A Daisy Original, created a new header and background for the chick's blog. Be sure to check her out, she is terrifically creative, so nice to work with and extraordinarly fast.
I found her through Design Mom's silent auction for Nie Nie (a fellow blogger, wife and mother of 4 who was in a private plane crash with her husband).
How terrific that the chick was able to give to a good cause and update her look. Thank you, Summer!

Bloggy Baby Shower

One Fabulous Mom is a girl that keeps on giving! She is hosting a bloggy baby shower for all of the preggers out there in blog land and I am excited to be a part of the fun! For those that are involved in the shower/swap Monogram Chick is offering a discount on your baby gift for the shower. We are all about making gift giving easy!

Whether you're a part of the bloggy shower or you're looking for a baby gift for your best friend Monogram Chick is the place for you. All products that leave the studio are wrapped up, cute as can be, and ready for gift giving.

For those of you that are pregnant and anxiously awaiting the arrival of your bundle of joy why not register for preppy, personalized baby swag at Monogram Chick's gift registry? Check out our brand-new personalized frames/ornaments, appliqued bibs and burp cloths, and our sweet little monogrammed bloomers for girls and preppy diaper covers for boys.

I'd Like to Thank....

Flip Flops and Pearls! Thank you Daphne for the sweet award. For those of you that don't know her, I think she is the sweetest, busiest girl that I know. Between going to the ends of the earth for her children, playing tennis, preparing to move and sharing the love of Jesus I don't know how she gets up before the rooster and has such energy and joy. For those of you that would like to get in on her blog fun just send her an email (located in her profile) and she'll send you an invite. You'll immediately become hooked, just as I did. Daphne and I met in a funny way. She placed an order and I sent her an email with a stupid question about her order--I had a blonde (although since I haven't highlighted my hair in over a year I am nosomuch blonde anymore) moment--and she was so gracious and kind. From there we started emailing and have kept up via the bloggy world. So, thank you to my friend, Daphne!

In sharing the love I give this award to:

Rachel Eng--a great friend and AMAZING photographer in Iowa City.

Prep-E Girl--a fun blog about a newly engaged prepster and her life and style. She also has a great shopping (read: great deals) blog. Check it out too!

Mrs. Preppy--I promise that John Mayer without his shirt is not the only reason I give you this award :)!

One Fabulous Mom--from financial advise to blog-cations, broken arms and bloggy baby showers you don't want to miss out on E's fantastic blog!

Is It Naptime Yet?--I love to read her blog because we have so much in common--husbands going back to school and all. Plus she has such a great sense of style for her home that she freely shares with her readers, all while taking care of her two precious girls while her husband is in Iraq.

Polka Dot Square--a new friend that has precious, precious mommy and me aprons.

The Baby Luc--I found this pregg-o's blog via Colleen (who has already been given this award), and have read with fascination as often as possible. She is only 10 days from delivering her son but has documented the process with exacting detail--I've learned so much--and laughed my head off!

Pass it on, ladies! To honor your favorite :
1) Add the logo of the award to your blog
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog
5) Leave a message for your nominees on their blogs

The Chick is Back!

After a restful and much needed little break the Chick is back and hard at work! Thanks to everyone who continued to place orders this past week--we'll be busy in the coming days--and can't wait to get started!

As promised, we've added Personalized Plates! I am so excited, I wish y'all could hear me squeal, these plates are SO COOL! For those of you that are making an effort to "Go Green" why not take the next step and ditch the paper plates for melamine plates? You'll be the envy of the neighborhood, your tailgating friends will be so jealous, and your preppy new plates will be great conversation starters! I can't decide if my fav is the funky zebra plate or the more classic vine plate. Let us know which you like best!

For those of you that don't know about's the 4-1-1: Melamine is a high melting organic that is used to make thermosetting molding compounds. When cured under high pressure and temperature, melamine mouldings exhibit resistance to heat, water and chemicals. Meaning it is dishwasher, but not microwave safe. And they are BPA free!

These Prep-tastic plates are custom made, just for you, and shipped to you from the manufacturer, please allow 10-14 days for delivery.

Can't wait to show off the new products but this week we'll rest and get our creative juices flowing so that next week when our machines are humming along we'll be ready!
