Thursday, December 9, 2010


So my mister calls me up on the telly just to tell me how much he appreciates me and loves me. He tells me he knows how busy I have been with Christmas shopping and prep and that he hasn't been much help. Love it! It just puts an extra jump in my step today!

New to my shop!

I completely enjoyed working with my client on her save the dates and wedding invitations. There are programs and thank you notes yet to come! Cassie is the absolute sweetest and her enthusiasm makes me love what I do even more!

A little update on Evie:
Evelyn is 5 months today! I cannot believe it. Time is going much too fast and I'm just trying to take in all the adorable little moments:) Evelyn started rolling over when she was just over 3 months, continues to roll and even scoots a little now. She's still in size 1 diapers, weighs about 13 lbs. or so, and is really long (she gets that from her daddy). Evie loves playing with her toy rings or anything she can get in her mouth:) She finds daddy totally hilarious, esp when he does jumping jacks! Evie loves her headbands (she told me so) and rarely leaves the house without one! To most of the world, she may appear bald, but we can see the peach fuzz that stands straight up on her sweet head:) She (usually) eats and sleeps like a champ. Some say we are in for a treat when # two comes along! She's our little rock star:)

{Hubbs is getting}

Gotta love him! My husband. His 26th birthday is today! When I first met him 7 years ago, he was such a little boy and I remember wanting him to grow up, I can't slow him down! Matt aspires to be an old man. Seriously! He thinks old guys are the greatest. They can say, do and dress however they like and no one can do anything about it! I love him:) 

Happy Birthday sweetheart! You are everything I have ever wanted and more...

 You are goofy when I need a laugh.

Dashing and handsom always:)

The BEST husband a girl could ever ask for.

The proudest and sweetest daddy. (He's wrapped!)

Here's to you!

{ N E W designs}

I have been on a roll lately! Just inspiration everywhere and I can't get all the ideas out of my head. I think I'm driving my husband nuts! ...I admit, I'm a little obsessed but I just love my business:) ...and there's still more to come!

I drew the tree a while back and used it on a much simpler wedding design. I found it to be rather boring and not my style at all. Then, all of a sudden, my head filled with a rustic and romantic idea for it! I have always had a weak spot for tree swings, climbing trees and carving our names in trees. Actually, my wedding gift from Matt was a big wooden tree swing...still not complete from a lack of tools, so he say;)

Another passion - lace! I  l o v e  lace! There is nothing out there quite like this. It's super romantic and french inspired.

Who doesn't go weak in the knees by Mr. Darcy! This invite is inspired by the hand written letters in old books like Pride & Prejudice.

Swirls, filigree and vintage appeal. This design has it all!

{Chuck Taylors}

Chuck Taylors are a must in our little family. When I first met my husband, they were one of his staples {chuck taylors are to matt like high heels are to me}. He always wore his chucks..even when we went canoeing! I honestly hated his shoes at first! But then they kinda grew on me and now whenever he teases that he'll stop wearing them, I kinda freak out. Ha! 

  {Matt and his cute!..have I mentioned Matt grew up on a dairy farm??}

Little Evie is 2 months old today!!! WOW! Time flies. I'm loving every day and every moment I spend with my baby girl. She is such a doll baby and sweetheart! She smiles all the time now and my absolute favorite moments are when Matt, Evie and I are all together just soaking it all in. Precious. I feel so absolutely blessed! Evelyn is about 9 or so lbs {we'll find out her exact weight on Friday}...and still in newborn diapers!!! She's a little gal:) She's become very curious and loves looking around! Evie is a great eater and sleeper...yes, I'm a lucky mama!

I believe it's time Evie has a pair of her own tiny shoes and what better than Chuck Taylors!??

How adorable can they be???

{Falling from Summer}

I'm really enjoying these last days of summer as the weather cools down in Ohio. I love fall - one of my favorite seasons! But, it leaves me holding on to elements of summer that I will miss...


Happy weekend:)

{A Look Inside}

Here is a mini tour of our home. While just having a baby a month ago and moving in only two months ago, we have so much decorating and renovating to do! I have a long list of projects to transform our house, but here is a peak inside:)

We have amazing large doorways that really open up the house. This is the living room. I have a couple pieces of furniture that I want to shabby chic, the chair in right corner and the end table on the left. We are also in need of much furniture to fill our home.

The dining room is awesome and large enough for guests and a growing family. You can catch a glimpse of the ugly green cabinets in the kitchen. I have big plans for those, using textured wallpaper! More on that to come later!

This is my FAVORITE room - my office:) It has fabulous wainscoting! I have had friends and family describe this room as something from the current "Pride & Prejudice" movie and a ballroom. The entire house is also decked out in antique lighting and door knobs.

This is my little corner workspace. I have big plans to transform it in the future with a much much larger desk and lots of storage!

I LOVE these double doors from the office into the dining room. It allows lots of privacy when I need to focus on work and the kiddos are being too noisy...that will be quite a few years down the road though:)
