Incredible Custom Baby Name Artwork And Giveaway!

Whether you've been reading ILYMTC for a week, several months, a year or even three years, then you're well aware of my love affair for all things personalized. From accessories to print work to kids' clothes, it's an obsession I freely divulge. 


This is precisely why I am so excited to share with you the work of a family friend of ours, Robert Saslow of BABY-CDEFG. "Robbie" is the creative and artistic genius behind so many wonderful and beautiful design pieces. 


As seen on his website, "Robert Saslow is a Los Angeles-based calligrapher and designer who comes from a family of artists. He earned a degree in 2-dimensional art from California State University, Northridge (1986). He has extensive experience teaching art, including over 20 years at Los Angeles schools, and nine summers on the art staff at UAHC Camp Swig in Saratoga, California. He is an active member in the Society for Calligraphy, and his work has been published in the Letter Arts Review, a leading calligraphic journal."


You can visit his online gallery here (http://www.robertsaslowdesign.com) to see just a handful of some of his incredible works of art including but not limited to ketubah prints, invitation and announcement design as well as my personal favorite, custom baby-naming personalized certificates.


Recently, Robbie gifted our family a custom BABY-CDEFG piece for Carter and I just love how it turned out. Sweet M2 hasn't even arrived yet and already I cannot wait to commission Robbie to create a piece for our second sweet son as well. 


{Our last name has been blurred for privacy!}


This particular piece of artwork features baby’s initial surrounded by charming illustrations of objects that begin with that letter. There is a different design for each of the twenty-six letters of the alphabet, and each design is available with five different background colors.


Robbie is so incredible to work with- very patient and quite helpful as he worked with me to decide which colors would look best on Carter's extra special piece of art. 




This particular piece arrived in pristine condition, safely preserved on a piece of French watercolor paper, already matted and ready to be popped into a frame. Within days I had it hanging in the perfect spot in Carter's room. 


It goes without saying the amount of hard work, love and dedication Robbie pours into each of his custom pieces. I am honored to have a piece of his work hanging in our home and so happy I had the opportunity to work with him. 


These pieces would make excellent gifts with each new addition to a family and I'm excited to add Robbie to my List of "Newborn Arrival Gifts!" 


Graciously, Robbie has offered up ONE special custom BABY-CDEFG piece of artwork to one lucky ILYMTC Loyal.
