Bacon Rules

If anyone knows my daughter at all, knows how absolutely perfect this onesie is. Yes, we are the parents during a photo shoot that bribes her child with bacon to sit still for a shot. Yes, we are the parents that bribes our child with bacon to get up in the morning. Our daughter loves bacon and this is perfect for her.

I have been getting a lot of requests for custom designs from birthday invitations to moving announcements. It’s really fun working with clients to bring their vision to reality. Going out tomorrow is this birthday party package for a soon-to-be 2 year old little girl. The mom gave me full reign in terms of design but wanted a package with a butterfly and bright vibrant colors. So I digitally drew the butterfly and styled the invitation, thank you cards, and gift tags around it. These definitely got me in the mood for warmer weather, trips to the park, and more daylight.

And good news, these invitations will make it into our new website coming soon!

Dilly Baby

I stumbled onto Dilly Baby the other day after checking out Mama Bargains and thought this was a great idea! Have you ever gone somewhere where you didn’t need to bring your entire diaper bag? Dilly Baby offers wristlet changing case sets that is roomy enough to house all your essentials like travel wipes, 2 diapers, and a changing pad yet small enough to carry on your wrist. And to boot, they also offer stylish goods for your wee ones like a girls first messenger bag and a crayon case. Now how handy is that?

So many fabrics…

So little time. I haven’t taken out Bessie in awhile and need some ideas and inspiration on what to make. What have you made lately?

La Marquise des Anges

I absolutely love shopping on Etsy. You cannot find the heart and soul that goes into making every item at your big department stores that you find here. And Sabine, owner and designer of La Marquise des Anges, is a perfect example. I recently received my beautiful grey and ivory ruffle top. The packaging was gorgeous, the handwritten note was sublime, and the smell of fresh lavender instantly made me dream of walks on the cobblestone streets of France during spring time. Sabine even went so far as to include those gorgeous handmade earrings you see in the pictures. But even before receiving my top I knew it was going to be something special because of her note she wrote to me:

“…I now have to handwash it , then it will line dry, rocking by the sweet breeze of the pyreneas mountains…”

I mean who wouldn’t want to receive something that was swinging in the breeze?

Merci beaucoup sweet Sabine!

Sneak Peek

As I work on revamping my shop I’m also taking the time to work on some new designs. Here are 2 new sets of note cards that will be available in my website soon. I’m also working on more invitation and personalized art prints. Lots of goodies to come!

What would you like to see in the new website? More stationery, invitations, gift tags?

I stumbled across this Italian shop via Etsy’s shopping guide, Etsy Finds. They featured their reusable wall paper lunch bags which immediately drew me in. The basis behind their shop is to take old vintage goods, in this case wallpaper, and create something new, modern, and fashionable. Aren’t those lamp shades gorgeous?
