Welcome!

Hi!  I’m Julia, owner of Laurel and Octavia, an etsy shop specializing in handmade baby and toddler clothing.  I’m a teacher, crafter and lover of coffee, cocktails and crosswords.

This blog will share some of my favorite activities and crafts to do with my 2-year-old and I hope you find fun, simple ideas to bring into your home.  Like all busy parents, I’m looking for activities that:

  • are fun & educational
  • don’t require tons of materials, are inexpensive and don’t make a huge mess.

This space will collect my favorites and be a resource for other parents looking for inspiration to learn + play with their children.

Join my newsletter to get monthly updates with the most popular crafts & activities, sneak peaks of new products and exclusive coupons.

I’m most active on instagram and would love for you to join me there!
