I dont have children, although so many of my friend are preggers or just did, but I do have 3 cats! I think it would be so fun to see some great silhouettes of cats. It really seems like you have it all covered. I especially like the self-inking stamps! What about plates/mugs? or Moving/new address cards?

LeAnna said...

What a creative company! I love the silhouette address labels. I may have over looked them, but I think the addition of birth announcements would be fantastic. I noticed the ultrasound silhouettes, and those are amazing!

Jamie said...

You you have a great shop! I would love the address labes. I'm also one who is obsessed with their dog so I love those too.

I'm bookmarking you and hopefully I'll feature you on my indie shopping blog!

Email me :)

Tuesday Girl said...

I cannot think of one thing you do not offer! Maybe address labels?

I hope I win, I LOVE your stuff.

I love your shop. When I was 13 my family had our Christmas card in silhouette. There were the 7 siblings and my parents and our dog. Everyone commented on how unusual and beautiful it was to receive.
I was brought back to that time looking through your site. I see that you have plates I was just wondering about a mug that might have a child's silhouette on it for their parent or grandparent.

Cheryl said...

Do you do quilt blocks?

Kara said...

I would love to see silhouettes of the family on a big serving dish, for special occasions!

leigh said...

i'd like notecards but that have the silhouettes like on the calling cards.

Shana said...

What a great idea! Your items are awesome! What about baby blankets. Ultrasound pictures would be great on them. On new born pictures.

Or throws for the back of couches or on beds would be cool. :o)

Frugal Mommy said...

OK...I LOVE THESE.......

I have a wall of fame in my house with pics of the kids. WOuld be perfect in the middle.

Diana C said...

I'd love personalized ornaments or maybe fridge magnets? with my dogs' silhouettes and their names.

Mrs. Sprinkles said...

I can't think of anything else--you guys have it covered! I like the totes and messenger bags.

Come enter my Amazon giveaway!

Barbara said...

Would like the pillow. Pick me.

Teresa said...

You have everything covered. First I thought dishes...but you already have those. Then I thought return address labels...have those too! Maybe just plain stickers. Or I have always wanted those stamps that you place into hot wax to seal an evenvelope!

Jenni said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the canvases! They are so pretty! How about a silhouette that you can put as a decal on your car?

I also like the idea of doing a Christmas ornament so you could get one every year to see how your kids change!

Sorry about that... I posted the wrong thing. I haven't had my coffee yet. Anyways, i'd love to see some sort of blankets? Baby blankets? Afghans? That would be great for winter time!

orchestratenoise0726[at]yahoo[dot]com

ChristiS said...

Your work is beautiful! As another commenter said, maybe a throw as a gift option? I honestly can't think of much else that you don't already have! I'll definitely be back!

Victoria said...

Wow, what beautiful products! I love the name plates and wonder if you could make bookmarks? I'd love to give books as gifts and it would be great to include a bookmark from your line. utgal2004 at yahoo dot com

quitecontrary1977 said...

More Mommy cards! I love them!!

The pillow with the full body image is the one I would pick. So unique!

Blessings Abound said...

Placemats and photo albums would be nice! Thanks!

akblessingsabound[at]gmail.com

Trish said...

These are adorable! What about a quilt or a blanket? Or even a ceramic cast of a silhouette?

Becca said...

Love the products...maybe journals offered with the images would be nice, as a keepsake to journal about your children...Beautiful items, thanks!
cross_home2001 (at) yahoo (dot) com

Glenda said...

The products are adorable. My Mom would love so many of these gifts of my little girl.

How about pillowcases that you sleep on? How adorable would that be for a little girl or boy to have their own pillowcases? Or of their pet?

Aprons? bathmats? Table runners?
Placemats? Shower Curtains?!!

April said...

Maybe earrings to go with the bracelets and necklaces. THANKS!!

Abby said...

Would love to see my daughter's silhouette readding a book on a bookmark!

altermyworld said...

How about custom ATC information for the back of the card?
Ang

Jessica said...

Love your site! What great ideas. I would love to see more stuff for Dads or Grandpa's. Always have a hard time find the perfect gift for them. Maybe something with team colors?

beatla(at)hotmail(dot)com

Craft & Bake said...

I would love to see you offer a rubber stamp as a silhouette!

Great website!

Leslie said...

I can't think of something I didn't find. What a brilliant company! My grandma always had a fun silhouette portrait of each of her children hanging on the wall and I always loved it. So glad to know about you!

Thanks! Leslie (youjustgottalaugh[at]gmail[dot]com)

Naomi said...

Oh, wow... you've expanded since the last time I peeked in! I love everything but I think I would go for the self-inking stamper. So cool. I honestly can't think of anything you don't have. Maybe cookie cutters?!

Carrie said...

you've already got so many things there! what about magnets?

adorablyconfused at hotmail dot com

Amity said...

every thing is really neat...I am not sure if this is possible but checks would be really cool!!

Angie said...

I enjoyed browsing your website! Nice items! I would maybe like to see more bird silhouettes!
Thanks,
baileybobby6(at)hotmail.com

Heidi said...

I have five little ones and we were trying to come up with a Christmas gift for the grandparents that would include all of their images. I'm not sure how you could fit that many onto something? But I would love multiple profiles for a gift. If the baby would cooperate. :)

Thanks for the chance to win! I'm hthaden at gmail dot com.

Kim said...

I think a calendar with silhouettes of the children doing different things each month would be such a great Christmas gift!
You are so very talented and do very lovely work.

Rachel said...

I love the cookie cutters idea!

A "buckaroo" sihlouette would be great for a little boy's room. Something that could be styled on an old poster kind of theme?

Love all the creativity on your website!

Nurse Mommy said...

maybe a family silhouette?

Gina said...

I have heard a lot about the mommy cards. What a great idea!

We are THAT Family said...

These are AWESOME! Love these amazing silhouettes! I would love to see maybe jewelry/pendants? Going to look some more at your stuff!

malleycc said...

I'd like to see some plus size shirts (I am not sure if the ones on your website are plus or not--I didn't see sizes). Also the silhouettes on the shirts are pretty small, maybe a tad larger.

Cute products though.

Kim said...

Unless I missed it, I didn't notice key chains. My mom collects them and would love silhouette keychains of her grandkids.

thanks for the chance to win

hushmouth said...

I'm not sure what you could add....
but I would love the labels! How neat.....
hushmouth{at}verizon{dot}net

bonbon momma said...

I love those cookie cutters!!!!! It looks like you really have so many items. How about magnets? Or maybe a printed fabric that could be used to sew different things (I am thinking like a small repeated design pattern?)

Kathleen said...

Wow, I really think you have all of your bases covered with cool products. I really like the Mommy Calling Cards and the address labels. Maybe you could do some wall vinyl silhouettes or some clothing tags to sew into kids clothes. But honestly, I think you're doing a wonderful job already.

Sharla said...

I love the pillow! One thing that might be cool is putting it on coasters or plates. My kids would love having their own plates with their silhouettes. I would also buy a bracelet with a picture of each of my children silhouettes. sharlacarbine at gmail dot com

Stacy said...

My sons birthday is coming up and I would love to have personalized thank you cards.

hetz-junk(at)hotmail(dot)com

Rachel R. said...

What about a wax seal stamp? That's the only thing I can think of that I don't see. It would definitely make for a personalized seal!

susan said...

I have been so excited about your holiday products - I just love the ones with the pets!

I would like to see baby blankets as well - that might make a unique and certainly personal gift to someone!

3cookieday said...

I would love to see a classic canvas with a black background and a white silhouette. Cute stuff!

jenny bento said...

I love the stamps! I make my own business cards and would totally use one for that. What about traditional wall hangings?

Tricia said...

I think a family tree type silhouette would be really neat.

mccammacks(at)sbcglobal(dot)net

Rhonda said...

Wow! You have an amazing variety of products already. Perhaps some of the wall vinyls which are really popular right now would be a cute decoration for a child's room.

Katie Stacey said...

family tree sillouttes would be very cool. i like the idea of printing them on things to give as gifts.

Reeva said...

silhouettes on totes and baby bags would be great

Great giveaway! I hope i’m the lucky winner!

Liz said...

I love the idea of the self-inking stamp.

The O'Brien's said...

I would love to see bride and groom silhouette pillowcase. I've been married for a few years now but I think it would be a lovely gift for newlyweds. :) Thanks for the giveaway!

Marie said...

Although I have two kids I also have four cats -- I would love to see a way to do a "family" portrait that includes pets -- it's silly I know, but they are family :-)

what about family trees or mommy cards?

PS said...

I like the classic silhouettes. These are so fabulous, thanks!

the schros said...

how about wall letters or names superimposed over the silhouette?

karmama said...

I would love to have a wall piece with myself, my husband and my two kids. I only saw swuare layouts, but I'd love a horizontal rectangle with my daughter's silhouette imposed on mine, and my son's imposed on my husband's, possibly with our family name underneith. It's a great concept, and I like the modern take on a classic idea.

Anonymous said...

There's lots of great products already. I'd like to see fridge magnets as well.

Sisters with Style said...

I love everything on your site. One idea I thought of was maybe a large platter or serving dish of some sort.

Hayley said...

Great site! I agree with those that said that plates would be cute- I think that a tea cup/ saucer set or even a simple bowl would be quite cute!

coasters are the only thing I didn't notice.

Jessica said...

I love the necklace, but I have more than 2 kids. Could you do a rectangle one with 4 silhouettes?

robin_titan said...

Soo cute! I think a new product you could have is have silhouettes on bookmarks and some that can be applied on walls

Reva Skie said...

I love the ornaments.

Jesica said...

What about fridge magnets? Or vinyl for the walls? (oops, you have that!)

hhmmm ... a tote bag, maybe?

I love the pillows. A silhouette of my 3 sons together would be so perfect.

HeatherLow said...

I love the room decor. I wonder if you could do premade scrapbook baby pages that gives all the baby's birth info plus a cute quote or baby poem or something.
Thanks for the giveaway.

Krista said...

My favorite is just the single silhouette. Could you do it bigger than 8x10? My husband and his sister have silhouettes at their parents house and it would be fun to add my son to the collection. But theirs are quite large if I remember correctly. :)

daytoncat said...

How about backpack tags for school or zipper pulls for coats?

I would love to see an item with two baby silhouettes- we have twins, so that would be a great addition to your product lines.

Becky said...

I would love to see something that would have the whole family on it. My son and DIL have four children and I would love something that shows mom and dad and all of the kiddos.

Thanks so much for the wonderful giveaway!

Ginny said...

The self inking stamp is pretty cool.

karen and co. said...

I LOVE your stuff! One thing I didn't see but would love to own is a picture frame (probably silver) with a silhouette in the bottom corner. That would be really cute.

Jenn said...

Wow! I love your all of your products. What about plates you can hang on the wall?? I was going to make some but of course it's always easiest to buy them already done. :)

Sandy said...

Wonderful ideas..love the silhouettes

Jinxy and Me said...

Everything is so pretty, I'm not sure what you could add. Maybe clothing with silhouettes?

maria said...

I think you already have such a great selection of items and I love them.... I hope this is not creepy, but what if you were to put silhouettes on pillowcases so that your mom/dad/spouse/pet etc. are with you always. Just a thought.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

I was thinking that maybe you could do storage items, like canvas bins or goodie jars. These are things that children would like to differentiate their own from their siblings.

Like many others have already said - you have a ton of great products already so it's hard to think of something new. What about coasters maybe?

Megret said...

How neat would a grandmother's apron be with silhouettes of her grandchildren??

I love your shop -- love anything silhouette related -- your designs and products are timeless.

Thanks!

christmas ornaments! either nice paper, metal or porcelain

Brooke said...

Maybe some bookmarks? Or "this book belongs to" stickers.

Becca said...

So many beautiful things here!! I love the idea of Christmas ornaments.

Knitterista said...

You have always had such pretty things. I just love my charms my mom gave me from when I was a baby. I collect them now and would love to see more jewelry or charms you can custom order with your own child's silhouette.

Elsie said...

Simply silhouettes is simply fantastic!

Love your products, my wish would be for silhouettes in a child's book, with a story to match...makes you use your imagination...such as a trip in a hot air balloon around the world, to see the landmarks of famous cities from the air!
