Meet Baby Chick Designs from the Winter 2010 Etsy Baby Shower

Baby Chick Designs is the brain child of a mother and daughter who discovered that decorating children’s bedrooms with tasteful, timeless art is not an easy task. Harriet Babchick, established artist in the Houston, Texas area decided to make some watercolors for Ellen, her granddaughter's new bedroom. Upon seeing the beautiful, fine art watercolors, her daughter Debbie decided that they must make them available to other families to enjoy! After researching the current market for nursery wall art they realized that their art was quite different and they could carve out a niche for themselves based on the artist’s signature style. With the technique of giclee printing and canvas stretching, they would be able to make adorable artwork for children’s spaces, and offer it at an affordable price, without sacrificing the quality.

Baby Chick Designs offers timeless wall art for a child's nursery, bedroom, and playroom in affordable themed collections. All designs are fine art giclee prints of original works of art by artist Harriet Babchick. Designs are available in standard sizes to fit ready-made frames.

Some of the top selling items from Baby Chick Designs are Pink Butterflies with Flowers, Giraffes from the Safari Animal Collection, and Brown Bunny from the Barnyard Animals Collection.

This is the first Etsy Baby Shower for Baby Chick Designs, and the lucky mom matched with this shop will be able to choose her favorite from the many designs available.
