# 8 Karen Eileen Designs

I met Karen from Karen Eileen Designs about 3 years ago when I was just starting a little thing called Eli's Lids.
She is whimsical, positive and a breath of fresh air!
You know, the kind of person who finds really cool stuff at vintage shops and has an eye for the uber-cool-not-so-mainstream-but-should-be art.
Her blog is great and packed with fun, silly, sweet, vintage, inspiring pictures.
Karen also has the sweetest baby line. Each design has a vintage inspired picture and is embellished with swarovski crystals!!
I have my eye on this little ditty--->>

And we'll be seeing a lot more from Karen Eileen Designs...
Tell us a bit about your family…
I have been married for almost 22 years. We have two sons: Chase; 15 and Michael ;21. We live near the beach in Southern Calif, but are considering a move to Colorado to fulfill a dream of land and small farm – as long as there is a great town to shop at eat at too!

You have such great style. Where do you shop?
Thank you for saying that. That is one of the things I love about getting older….you wear what you want. I LOVE Anthropologie. That is probably my fave. From household to clothing…books…all they need is a coffee shop and I would never go anyplace else. I also love thrifting. It helps to satisfy that shopping urge when the budget is tight. Another favorite place is the library. I love books. I can never have enough. The best thing is checking out stacks of home, gardening and cookbooks.
Why did you start Karen Eileen Designs?
I was inspired by all of the horrible messages that I saw on young women’s tees. I thought, “why doesn’t someone make cool tees with positive things? Eventually my love for all things adorable evolved my business into baby and toddler designs.











Anything new one the horizon for Karen Eileen Designs? Yes. I hope to launch my new website next month. It has been in the making for a long time. I will sell my baby line, along with tees for women, maternity, jewelry and apothecary. I am also very excited to be featuring one of my favorite artist’s work: Kerry Judd.
What inspires you?
That changes all the time. Sometimes it is gardening, sometimes I can be looking through a magazine. One of the things that inspires the “business” side of me is to meet and know other women who are doing what they love for a living’ making a difference in the world with their own passions and creativity.

Many of them seem geared towards girls, but of the ones for boys, I like His Majesty the best.
