Valentines Day is such a sweet Holiday to celebrate with my boys. I love instilling in them the value of friendship and love. While planning my sons’ Valentine preschool party I was trying to figure out a good gift idea for his teachers. I came across Jane Foster Designs’ Handmade Valentine Dogs and knew they would be great present!
Or if your child prefers cats…
The Handmade Valentine Dogs have each been hand screen-printed using water based inks that have been heat fixed. The designer, Jane Foster gets her inspiration from designs from the ’50s and ‘60s, Scandinavian designs, and bits from her parents, and simple illustrations from illustrators such as Dick Bruna. My boys fell in love with these heart dogs and went straight into an imaginary world with them. I plan on gifting one of these charming dogs to his preschool teacher this Valentine Season. Who wouldn’t appreciate one of these adorable toys?
or the alphabet…
Jane Foster’s Valentine Dogs are the “stuffed animals” you wouldn’t mind having more of! Have a look at her shop for more cutesy stuffed creations!

As stated in previous posts, I have a dear love for screen-printed clothing. San Francisco based company Tiny Teru has enlarged my screen print collection with their signature inspirational design “I AM ABLE” tee. This tee features Thomas riding in his vintage racecar screen-printed with water based eco-friendly inks on an American Apparel tee.
my little man
We wanted to capture the wonder and endless possibility of childhood by creating a collection of loveable and truly unique baby clothes. Voila! The I am Able collection was born. Each design conveys a message with words that all contain “Able”, inferring hope, fun, & inspiration. In Japanese, the name “Teru”(teh-du) means brilliant, shiny or to illuminate and we hope our collection warms your heart in the same way.”
One thing that challenges my love for screen-printing is pieces made in the USA. Tiny Teru does just that by choosing to print their designs on sweatshop-free tees. Love it! Along with this charming racecar design, Tiny Teru also carries a vintage tricycle print on onesies and tees for boys and girls. If you choose to throw a bicycle or recycle theme party they make amazing silk-screened prints onto a 100% sustainable Bamboo Blocks! This is definitely on my purchase list for the next birthday party I throw!
It’s a passion of mine to find interesting, modern, and sustainable products to use and share with others. Tiny Teru’s hand drawn designs are ones I was exited to share with you. Check out Tiny Teru and purchase an item or two for someone you know would appreciate it! Kudos to Tiny Teru!
