Hush, little baby…

21Mar
  • Hush, little baby…

…don’t say a word. Mama’s gonna buy you a custom, hand-illustrated lullaby for your nursery.

Custom lullaby

But yours is going to rhyme. And be personalized to fit the story of your new family. Here’s how it works:

Happy mummy-to-be

1. I ask for a few details about the mummy and daddy-to-be.

2. I re-word a favorite lullaby or nursery rhyme.

3. I hand-illustrate and calligraph the original artwork.

It’s as easy as One – Two – Buckle my shoe.

The re-writes to the classic rhymes have included phrasing like ‘If that billy goat won’t stomp, Mama’s gonna buy you a Gator Chomp’ (for the University of Florida mummies) and ‘If that Crimson Tide won’t roll, Mama’s gonna buy you a fishin’ pole’ (for University of Alabama alum).

Another southern edit I love – ‘and if that pole falls in the sea, Mama’s gonna buy you a Magnolia tree.’

Hickory, Dickory Dock…I could do this ’round the clock. I really do love the creative writing part of the process.

The artwork is all done by hand. Each piece is one-of-a-kind.

It makes a perfect, unique gift. And the reaction? See for yourself in this photo of a very happy mummy taken by the talented Lauren Louise.

For a truly southern baby shower, Pearl Beach Paperie turned the art into fans for the guests.

Honestly, dahhlin’, what’s not to love?

And I think we all know this is true: When Mama’s happy, everybody’s happy.
