My hands feel happily full with only a three-month old to take care of. And though my daughter has certainly made my life complete, one thing remains missing: Time. Rarely can I find the time to do much more than the basics, and when I do have time to spare, I usually opt to nap! Not only do I have a newfound appreciation for all Moms out there, but I feel in awe about anyone who finds the time to be creative and entrepreneurial. But that’s exactly what Whitney Surane of Madly Wish has managed to do.
Madly Wish proves the colorful and stylish answer to the same old nursery/baby item question, designed by a lady who knows. With five kids, Whitney works into the night to design and hand make gorgeous blankets, swaddles, sheets and more. That’s right – she has forgone the extra sleep to put her personal touch on every item that Madly Wish produces.
The overall brand aesthetic is chic and whimsical. Whitney recognized something that many mothers notice all the time – it can be hard to find interesting nursery items that stand out. I fell in love with the Watercolor Feather Blanket with Faux Fur. The colors are so bold thanks to the water based ink, and the French seams mean that the blanket is incredibly durable too. But what I love most is how soft it is. The faux fur is a great addition, and my daughter Chloe definitely approved. So far the blanket has kept her warm in her stroller, and has served as a makeshift play mat. I’ve received a ton of compliments as well.
Knowing the personal story behind Madly Wish makes me love the brand and products even more. It feels more personal to know we can decorate nurseries with beautiful items, handmade with heart. If you are seeking out something special, or want to give an even more personal gift, Whitney will also make custom orders. To look at the brand’s full inventory, visit www.madlywish.com. It’s worth reserving any busy-Mom spare time to take a look, though you may have trouble choosing a design or pattern from the diverse and fun selection!
