O U R S T O R Y
In 2012, when I was pregnant with my Lily, my world as a mom started taking shape as I sought to create a colorful nursery for my baby girl. I found it difficult to find art and decor that fit the cheerful, whimsical room I was imagining. We love color, musicals, rock + roll and geeky things. We like things a little weird and a little silly. So I put my design major to work and started making art. What began as designing a couple art prints for my baby girl grew into a shop full of colorful art, clothing and handmade gifts!
At Lil'Roo we celebrate what childhood should be all about.

I'm Shannon Sorensen. I'm passionate about creating goodies that celebrate the imagination, creativity, and kids being kids. In addition to being a maker, I am a full time family photographer. I love putting different areas of creativity to work in my life and am blessed to truly do what I love, as well as spending my days with my little smiley guy, Roo, while Lil is at school.
I subsist mainly off coffee and seltzer with the occasional grilled cheese. I love Broadway musicals and The Beatles. I love going on walks and adventuring to new (and familiar) places in Connecticut and around New England. I wish I took more time to read books, but at the end of the day, it's usually catching up on shows while crocheting or falling asleep on the couch.
In our home, we love books, music, making fairy gardens and messes. We pair tutus with superhero capes and save the day while looking fabulous. We fight off bad guys with light sabers and then bake chocolate chip cookies. We have epic dance parties and love going on adventures (especially to the ice cream shoppe). And we love snuggling in a pile on the couch with a big bowl of popcorn to watch our favorite movies. We find joy in the little things.
