About Us//

hi!! welcome! i am jess. this is my blog!

Dream Catcher Baby is my little online home where I will document my little (growing) family's day to day life and special events. Maybe a few outfits (mostly of the little man living in the home), some totally great tutorials, and delicious recipes. One of my goals for 2013 is to become a better photographer. At least do more with my DSLR and less with that silly little phone of mine.

Go here to check out why we're called Dream Catcher Baby.

meet us:

that's me! a wife, mother,  designer, self taught seamstress, entrepreneur, and very passionate about all things handmade. I grew up drawing clothes, putting together outfits days in advance and obsessing over the latest trends. At age eight I began to design and make clothes for my Barbie’s out of toilet paper and napkins. I began sewing shortly after when my grandma gave me some fabric scraps, a needle and thread, and a long lecture about NOT losing the needle in the carpet. I have spent many years developing a talent that I had no idea would be such a huge part of my life. In 2012 I started Dream Catcher Baby; a handmade business dedicated to creating beautiful items for babies & children. My shop has grown into something I never dreamed. My life these days revolve around my husband, my two sweet boys, and sewing Big Bow dresses (an original design-designed by myself) for special little girls all over the world!

my hottie husband and best friend! the mister loves cooking Mexican food (he served a two year mission in Mexico), selling stuff (he is majored in business-entrepreneurship and graduated from BYU in april 2012), working at his cool job (Qualtrics) and getting back scratches. 


he is our extremely active boy who is the light of our lives! he loves bananas, milk and strawberries, watching toy story, playing with his excavator, dump truck and cement mixer, going for walks and bike rides, and spending as much time outside as he possibly can.

philip is fairly new to the family. he joined the swenson clan april 2013 weighing a hefty 10 pound and 10 ounces. he is the happiest guy around! he is always willing to flash his new toothy grin. he has been know to really cheese it up too. he also loves bananas, being held, and trying to play with his big brother.

"The Chaz" is probably the most spoiled puppy dog out there! he loves playing chase with his ball,  flavored pig ears and going for rides in the car and walks. he knows how to shake paws, beg, dance, roll over and takes his treats extra nice. add him on Facebook to keep up with his daily life!
