Hi!  I’m RobbieLee, the creative behind Chickiedee | Handmade, and I live in beautiful Colorado!  Welcome to my blog!  I believe that inspiration is key to living a productive and happy life.  I’m inspired daily by other artists, bloggers, and creative people, so I aim to return the favor.  That’s why you’ll find weekly/monthly features, such as, {studio sunday}, {sunday best}, {life lately}, {DIY} + so much more.  In addition, I will share sneak peeks into my daily life, projects + adventures.  I’m happy to have you here!

Weekly/monthly Features + Descriptions:

{diy} – I love a great and original {DIY} just as much as the next person.  So, in my efforts to inspire, every Wednesday you will find one right here from me to you!

{studio sunday} – about once or twice a month (sometimes more!), I feature a creative studio space on Sunday.  The idea is to showcase your creative space to inspire others.  We all have a space, big or small, where we create lovely things.  The beauty is that each space looks, functions and feels very different from everyone else’s.  We are always showing off our handmade goodies, but what about giving some credit to the lovely and creative space that we’ve also created!  If you’re interested in having your studio featured and you fit in with the overall feel of Chickiedee, I’d love to have you!  Contact me using the form below and I’ll send you the info.

{sunday best} – I love mixing and matching different colors, patterns, textures and eras!  My {sunday best} posts will share one of my favorite outfits of the week.

{life lately} - This is a weekly wrap up that I post every Friday.  I’ll share my updates, inspirations, adventures, discoveries and more!

 Did you know?

• Before it was Chickiedee | Handmade, it was Chickiedee | Modern Apparel for Babies.  I really wanted to expand and show what else I can do.  I still make all of my baby items and I’ve grown to make more!

It’s Chickiedee, not Chickadee… Many people kindly tell me that I spelled it wrong, but it’s not chickadee, like the bird.  It’s Chickiedee, my nickname.  (Smile)  Thanks for looking out though!

The name Chickiedee is the nickname my mother gave me when I was about 3 years old.  I used to have a soft and fluffy yellow coat with a chickie on it and it was my absolute favorite.  I wore it everywhere.  So, she eventually just started calling me Chickiedee and it stuck.  RobbieLee at Chickiedee… it has a nice ring to it, dontcha think?!

The name Chickiedee is the nickname my mother gave me when I was about 3 years old.  I used to have a soft and fluffy yellow coat with a chickie on it and it was my absolute favorite.  I wore it everywhere.  So, she eventually just started calling me Chickiedee and it stuck.  She still calls me by this name to this very day.
Here at Chickiedee we believe that it’s important to be as gentle on the environment as we possibly can to ensure that our children can have a healthy place to grow and play.  That’s why we try our best to use eco-friendly materials and practices to create all of our products.  All of Chickidee’s one-pieces are 100% Cotton or 100% Organic Cotton for the most comfort and sustainability.  All of our items are American made, sweatshop-free and handmade with care.
We encourage everyone to recycle and reuse as many items as possible.  If we all work together, we truly can make a difference and our children will surly benefit from it.
