The Great Wall of Kiddo Artwork…


Currently, we are starting the process of creating our own 'dream studio' in the back rooms of Red Velvet land. A magical place to sew, paint and create with racks of clothing and pretty supplies everywhere.

I have a vision of covering an entire wall with children's drawings of and about the Red Velvet shop (the above artwork is by Hope). If you have a little artist in your family, we'd love to see their work in our mailbox. Just have them draw something related to Red Velvet (fashion, cupcakes, craft, vintage etc…) and send it to our store! 

Red Velvet 211 E. Commercial Springfield, Mo. 65803

I'm so excited about this fun little project! We'll be sure to post lots of photos after our wall is completed. PS. be sure each piece is signed by the little artist! ;) 

Designing my new dream studio is the last of my 4 Simple Goals before the new year! How are you doing with your goals? Xo. elsie 

  • Awww, how sweet! I love the simplicity and bright colors kids aren’t afraid to use in their art. I can’t wait to see your collection of little masterpieces!

  • One of my goals was to overhaul my packaging, I did a fun blogpost about it this week, I’m so proud of what I have come up with, thank you for inspiring me!

    You can see what I came up with, if you like, here:

  • This is wonderful! My daughter is 7 and would love to be a part of this. We’ll get her’s in the mail ASAP! 🙂

  • That’s such a cute idea. I’ve been doing pretty well with my simple goals.

  • What a sweet idea.
    I wrote a blogpost on how my goals are coming along. Thanks for the motivation Helen! x

  • Cute I’ll ask my Niece to draw something up she turns 6 this week, and loves to draw!

  • i did an update! hope to see pictures on your inspirational room.

  • I haven’t met my goals this year 🙁

    I wanted to start my own online biz, but I haven’t found the time or inspiration (for a name). It’s quite frustrating.

    Reading your blog gives me some motivation though! I love how the store looks 🙂

  • Very cute idea, nothing like artwork by kiddo’s!! Can’t wait for some sneak peeks!! Happy Tuesday!

  • Oh I wish my kids were older!! Can I send you a picture? It would pretty much look like a little kid created it! I am in love with your shop and dream of someday doing a little road trip out to see you there in Ohio!

  • I have two little ladies who are excited about sending their artwork to a special place!

  • Very cool idea! My girls will love to contribute! Their Gpa used to live in Springfield (he was an ROTC instructor at the college), too bad he is not still there, we’d love to come visit the shop!

  • I just wanted to stop by to say hi, Helen! And tell you that I saw you and Didier at Target this weekend. I adore your matching gold sparkly TOMS. 🙂 I was going to stop you to say hi and let you know I was a blog reader but I was already in line and didn’t want to bother you. Hope you found what you were looking for!

  • That’s a fantastic idea! Do you plan to eventually hold classes in the space? Good luck with the kiddie art wall-I may have to have my niece and nephew send you something!


    All this is Grace and Charm

  • Have you ever thought of hosting a ticketed dress-up party for girls 6-9 or older? You could use some of your less treasured dresses or items you get that you might eventually donate. Pepper in some activities along with dress-up, like: decorate cupcakes, do a craft, scrap booking, learn some vintage dance moves. Or maybe a store sleep-over! I am the Kid’s Event Coordinator at an indie bookstore and we do Princess Parties, Fairy Parties, Mermaid Parties and they are always a BIG hit. Plus you have lots of great pals to help you out with the different features which would make it a very unique product!

  • Like Carly, I also was wondering if you are planning to hold classes in your “dream studio”. I love it when stores offer special events like that, and with your talents and ideas, I’m sure you would get plenty of interest! 🙂

  • I did a post updating how I’m doing on my goals!

  • wow. it is unbelievable. I love it so much . Thanks for your sharing. cool .great. I sure I’ll come back soon.

  • In addition, there also have Chanel Classic, if you like the classic items.

    You won”t never regret to purchase it !
