How to use “That’s a Wrap!” Video

Welcome to CuteyBaby

My name is Ada Vaughan, and I'm so excited to be running this endeavor called CuteyBaby. I'm a mom, graphic designer, and marketing geek. CuteyBaby's mission is to enhance the lives of children and parents through ingenuity and design.

Feeling a little dotty?

So I was looking through the baby registry for a couple of friends and saw they were “themeless”. I totally understand this because I myself did a graphic (non-character) nursery for my little one. But it does make it a little harder to shop for decor. Especially if you don’t know the person well. It [...]

Welcome to the jungle, ahem, safari, er, pond?

After doing some research at local retailers and online, I have determined that the animals put together by infant bedding designers really have nothing to do with each other. You know, like frogs with ladybugs – I mean, wouldn’t the frogs eat them? Or tigers with giraffes, or frogs with elephants – I don’t think [...]

Fave new sketch

I’ve been drawing jungle animals for a few hours tonight. Working on a new design I’m calling Jingle Jangle Jungle. Sometimes the pen just takes over, and you get a giraffe looking at you like – “well?”  This little one is being incorporated into a sheet of rainforest-type animals. She’s just so darn cute, I [...]

Photo Shoot – yea!

Well it’s been a fun-filled day! I can’t believe we did 8 setups for photography in one marathon session. The photos are looking great and I’m so excited to post them to the site. Here are several shots for you to view – let us know what you think! Here’s a special thanks to everyone [...]

Decals looking FAB!

Today was the first time I saw ALL of the decals laid out together after a production run. We are getting ready for the weekend photo shoot, and I’m SO excited. I’m shopping & propping, and getting my creative mojo going today and tomorrow. By the way – if folks who are visiting the site [...]

Love the lizards!

Here’s a new design I just finished tonight. It’s called “Leaping Lizards” and it’s inspired by a recent trip to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago. More amphibians and sea life to come soon! I’m holding off posting anything else to the Amazon store until we do our photo shoot this coming weekend. If you see [...]

Just released – latest wall decal designs!

So fun – girl pirates are now loaded on Amazon. Loved doing this design. It will be going into Zola’s room. What’s not to love? Boats, buried treasure, palm trees? Adventure on the high seas! Leanne’s Big Work Trucks One and Two are absolutely inspired. There is nothing out there like this for little boys [...]

Funky Girl Pirates – Walk the plank!

My little one has a leapfrog toy with a 2-piece magnetic boat thing. One of the phrases when the boat is matched – “A Captain Drives A Boat – Aye Matey!” Which of course my husband, and now daughter, repeats all the time. So funny coming from an 18-month old. Okay, so maybe this isn’t [...]

Final production pieces of “Go Bananas” are in!

Today I picked up the first production run of wall decals for CuteyBaby’s “Go Bananas” themed art. It’s really neat! At left is a little pic of the sheet (on my floor) of the medium sized monkeys. I set them up so people can do their own configuration of branches, leaves, and bananas to create [...]
