meet the team

Stix & Stones Baby launched into business in 2005. Our little spot on cyber-space has since exploded in size since our original inception operating only with our flagship Babyography® keepsakes range. We are an Australian owned and operated retailer and producer of refreshingly different and personalised goodies and keepsakes for little people. We are based in a (relatively!) child friendly office in sunny Cairns, Queensland.

We are the creators, designers, producers and trademark owners of many of our products. Whenever we design or buy for our shop we look for beautifully made, handcrafted, unique and inspiring products that we would love to have in our own homes. Products that are made in Australia and, in particular in North Queensland are particularly appealing and we are constantly amazed at the skill and talent of our local Cairns and local Queenslander (Go Maroons!) makers.

Our flagship range is our Bus & Tram Scroll range, Birth Announcement range, The Petite Post®, Babyography® keepsakes range, along with our popular nursery decor ranges. We offer gorgeous personalised gifts, keepsakes and decor for all life's special occasions. Everything has been hand-produced, customised, researched and tested, and are not mass-produced products. Most importantly our customers receive products that are top quality, wonderfully uncommon and timeless.

We hope you will find something to surprise and delight as you look through the pages of our website and we would love to hear your comments and suggestions.

About our ‘Operations’:

  • dining room / pool table = production room/packaging room
  • large messy desk = office/world headquarters
  • spare bedroom = warehouse
  • front porch = shipping/receiving
  • computer with internet = storefront
  • Mum working at home to be with the kids (a.k.a. disgruntled 'employees') = president/CEO/owner

Old Fashioned Service:

We offer good old-fashioned customer service with, of course, the aid of technology. We'll always return your emails and are always happy to offer you plenty of help and suggestions in customising your own decorating ideas.

We are able to keep our products at affordable prices, as we do not require a retail shopfront; do not have big advertising budgets; or drive flashy cars (!) and instead rely on word of mouth.

Introducing 'us':

Tracey & Jason with Jessica, Jackson and brand new edition Mitchell...G'day! I'm the owner of S&S Baby, both the 'computer geek' behind the site and creator of many of our products such as as our Bus Scrolls, Babyography® range, and our birth announcements. I am proud of our diverse range of products; all produced from myself and our team of wonderful Australian work-at-home mums. I've had the opportunity to chat to many of our customers, from all our loyal rural shoppers, to our metro mums, our devoted dads, and of course our tech-savvy grandmas and pas - thank you for your continued support.

And introducing our team of artists and designers:

We have a wonderful team of mega-talented people working with us, which enables us to offer such a broad range of quality and custom hand made products...

Kylie with her very cool kids, energetic Ethan and sensational Sydney... Kylie is our talented artist who creates many of our nursery decor items - artwork, hair clip holders, puzzles, wall motifs, artwork hangers, bookends, plaques...and the list goes on... She loves colour and more colour...and is a perfectionist at all she does. Kylie returned to Australia, after living in Canada for 12 years and we are pleased to showcase her fabulously fun and colourful nursery decor items for kids. As most of her items are custom made we are always happy to work together to create the perfect masterpieces or coordinated sets for your room. She never stops creating, and I always look forward to the next artistic idea or creation she has dreamt up (normally every week!).
Amy with hubby Matt and her gorgeous kids Milla, Felicity and Harris... Amy is our bubbly designer of our bunting range. Amy has a wonderful eye for whipping up the perfect creation to suit any room and has a flair for finding the perfect fabrics to die for! Always super popular, Amy tends to make limited editions or one-offs to keep your item unique.
Kylie with Daniel and their beautiful children Hudson and Charlotte... Kylie is one talented lady who both designs fabrics and artwork prints and then fashions them in to all manner of funky products. Her brand is consumed with happy illustrations, and colours that are bright and vivid. Her personalised cushions sell like hot cakes and she continues to grow her fabulous coordinated range adding wall decals, quilts, prints, door stops, etc etc. Love your work Kylie!
Katrina with her girls modelling their mummy's creations... Katrina like many of us, started her business adventure when she designed and printed a t-shirt with ‘Sienna’ (her first-born daughter’s name) in bold across the middle and proceeded to Mothers Group. Everyone loved it, and the comments she received encouraged Katrina to think of taking the idea further. What we love about Katrina's range is her absolute committment to quality, bright designs and fast turnarounds. We are sure you will something in her personalised t-shirt range for that special little person in your life and as Katrina says "to enable kids to state their identity out loud and proud with a big smile".
Tennille with her Brissie beach-going clan... Tennille is the lady behind our personalised mother, baby and children's bracelet range. Her beautiful beaded and embellished designs are always made impeccably and offer the highest level of durability. Always popular for special occasions such as christenings and first birthdays, Tennille's pieces are sure to be a special keepsake in the recipient's life. Tennille's aim is to create jewellery with meaning, fun to wear, of the highest quality all handcrafted from the heart with love and great attention to detail.
Leigh-Ann busy at work with her mosiacs and ceramics... Leigh-Ann is our vibrant and vivacious maker of all our personalised ceramics on our site. We are very proud to showcase her work. We looked far and wide to our humble opinion...the best maker of personalised ceramics in Australia. Her range is always so lovely and colourful, with a massive choice of designs, and best of all, most items can be personalised even further with messages on the back of plates; right down to adapating your design to have matching hair colour etc on plate designs to match that of your lucky recipient. Her ceramic Christmas baubles are always popular so be sure to get in early so as not to miss out! Enjoy.
  and there are many more that we are still convincing to put their mug shots online...
