Q & A with Peekawhoo Founder, Heather Parramore!


The first time I learned of Heather’s mad sewing skills was Halloween, 2006, when her then four-year-old daughter rolled up to our neighborhood to trick-or-treat in a gorgeous wedding dress that apparently she requested the NIGHT BEFORE…so Heather made it.  Just sat down and sewed it.  Sewed her a wedding dress! And not a simple A-line shift, either, but Ariel’s wedding dress from The Little Mermaid.  Puffy sleeves, box pleats, aqua trim, layers upon layers of white satin, exactly like the one below.

Friday Favorites


To say we are ready for fall to arrive in Greenville, SC is an understatement.  Kelley has been wearing a scarf in the studio, because we have the air on high for some of us whom are hot natured. Ahem, older… I’m ready to wear mine you’ve seen on our Instagram when the weather decides to dip below 60 degrees. That photo, by one of favorite Greenville photographers, was taken on an 90 degree day a few weeks ago, and I about

Q and A with Artist Megan Carn!


We recently had the great pleasure of taking a painting class with Columbia artist Megan Carn at Marquin Campbell’s lovely studio, Vino and Van Gogh.  We’ve always admired Megan’s work, and when we heard she was coming through Greenville, we knew that taking her class would be a fun team building activity for the ladies of Peekawhoo.  Obviously there’s a reason why the four of us aren’t professional artists…but we really enjoyed Megan and the class so much nonetheless-not to mention we love

Screen Shot 2016-05-20 at 1.19.10 PM

It’s not often that our Jellycat bunnies make the news, but this past week, one special BunBun in particular became a local celebrity! Every May, Greenville, SC, hosts Artisphere, a fantastic street festival that attracts tens of thousands of people and has a little something for everyone, kids and adults alike. It’s not unusual to see families strolling the streets, perusing juried art in a variety of mediums, watching live performances, or creating interesting crafts in the Kidsphere tent.

Personalized Little Giraffe…is love!


When my oldest was born 11 years ago, we received a host of wonderful gifts.  He was the first!  We were young! We needed ALLTHETHINGS!!!!!! Then we had another one 18 months later, and he received some nice gifts, too. Then we had another one 2 years later and people are like…you had another baby? THEN we added this last one to the bunch almost 7 years after the last one and people are all…what?  Huh?  They’re not even

Let’s catch up a bit.


If you’re getting this email, chances are you signed up to follow our blog years ago, back when we were starting out and back when I actually wrote more than bi-annually. I love to write.  And whenever I go back and read this blog, I’m all “Man I’M FUNNY! I should do this more!” …but a few things have happened since we started this business, and writing this blog keeps getting pushed to the back burner. What’s happened, you

Baby Book: Back to Basics


I’ve spent the last ten years agonizing over how I’m going to make my son’s baby book as fabulous as my first born’s. I only have two children. How hard can this be?   My daughter’s baby book has two parts. Really, it’s two books. 0-6 months in one and 6-12 in the other. I scrapbooked the hell out of her baby book. Total first time, stay-at-home, scrapbook ALLTHETHINGS mom. I loved it. I stressed out over every page

It’s Monogrammed Jellycat Bunny Time, People.

Have you ever watched Flight of the Conchords?  Yes?  Then you’ll know…It’s Bunny Time.  If you haven’t watched, then you need to check in on Jemaine and Bret, the clever duo from New Zealand that star in this hilarious show.  You should only watch it, however, after you buy a few bunnies. If you need a reason to buy a few bunnies, please see below. One of #3’s chief complaints is that he has to sleep alone…”you get to

Lucy Darling Stickers and a Birthday.

It occurs to me as I am adding these adorable Lucy Darling Stickers to our website… …that today is my nephew’s 15th birthday. 15. As in this little chunky nugget is turning FIFTEEN today. How did it happen, you wonder?  I wonder, too, when this little lump of love went from that, to this. It’s one of those strange wonders of life and aging when you watch someone transform right in front of your very eyes, when the shift

New Year, New You! (Or at the very least…NEW FUN FONTS!!)

So back in October when I updated our Name Fonts, I mentioned that “next week I’ll be updating our Monogram Fonts!” Next week obviously turned into NEXT YEAR, so…here we are. 2014!! It’s safe to say that November and December went by in a blur of Angel Dear Lovies and Jellycat Bunnies and Zutano gowns, mimosas and holiday cookies and fruitcake.  We hope that the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014 has been all that you want it

Jack Black on Fonts.

Do ya’ll remember that scene in High Fidelity where Barry, played by Jack Black, basically shuts down a customer because he wholesale thinks the customer’s taste in music is unacceptable?   Barry’s Customer: Hi, Do you have the song “I Just Called to Say I Love You?” It’s for my daughter’s birthday. Barry: Yea we have it. Barry’s Customer: Great, great.  Can I have it? Barry: No, no, you can’t. Barry’s Customer: Why not? Barry: Well, it’s sentimental tacky
