Hi, I’m Stephanie Keeping, Chief Navigator here at Spaceships and Laser Beams. When I started this site in 2011, it was a bit of a love letter to my son, Sam. The idea for this site came about when I was planning his first birthday. I found a lot of amazing party ideas for girls but I wanted something cute and special for my little boy. By the time we had Sam’s second birthday, I had a printable shop up and running on Etsy as well as this blog where I share popular boy party ideas almost every day. Since then, I’ve added posts on toys, clothes, books and games that celebrate boyhood and being the parent of a boy.
When it came to naming my website and business, there was no question what it would be. The name, Spaceships and Laser Beams, comes from a thing I used to do when Sam was a baby. I’d say, “spaceships and laser beams pew, pew, pew, pew,” using my best laser beam impression (which, truth be told, wasn’t so good) and he would laugh uncontrollably. I felt like a rock star new mom for being able able to make my baby laugh!
