Balancing Act

Well September has flown by! Life has been very busy the past few weeks. Sometimes I feel like I am on a train that never ends. . all be it a fun train! Right now we are in the midst of trying to restock our site and get ready for the upcoming holiday season.

We have been working on several new journals. .

some pretty garlands . .

and just added some great new cards and tags.

We hope you will stop by and see what's new this week. We are also getting ready for a fun Make Mine Pink Friday where the theme is Simply Pink. Does it get any better than that? We think not!

It is a juggling act sometimes. . creating, spending time with family and keeping the house from falling into total disarray. In the end though. . it's all worth it and I wouldn't change a thing. Wishing you a wonderful week!

Knee Deep in Paper and Lace

I'm not quite sure where the week has gone. Here we are and it's Thursday already! I have been knee deep in paper and lace all week. We have been working on custom orders and preparing for our Parisian Vintage Christmas. I am really pleased with it and can't wait to debut it. In the mean time, here are some new journals now available on our site. I hope your week is flying by and you too are knee deep in something you love!

My little one started soccer this weekend. She is almost 4 and is playing in our city Tiny Tots League. They are so cute running around, having a good old time. I just had to share a few pictures of her. We think she may be the athlete in the family. She seems to gravitate towards most any sport and is happiest running around outside or riding her bike.

She got to practice with Daddy which she loved.
It really is the simple things that make me smile, and my Francesca and her big brother are at the top of my list. Wishing you all a week filled with simple pleasures and time out to smile.

Offic Chic

We love a pretty workspace. Frilly clipboards, fancy file folders, neat ways to organize your papers and pens. Everything should have a place. I know for me, I am inspired to do those not so fun chores like bookkeeping and bill paying if I can do it in a space that is calm and filled with the things I love.

This week we are happy to take part in Make Mine Pink's Pink Friday shopping event. The theme is Office Chic and we have lots of wonderful items which will be specially priced this week.

So stop by on Friday, September 18th and see what's new!

A Bit of Christmas

I know it's a bit early, but we are in full swing preparing for the holidays. I thought I would take a minute to share a few of the tags we have been working on. We are going to make sets for the holiday season with coordinating tussie mussies, tags and ornaments perfect for gift giving. These are currently availabe. You can see a preview of some of our Holiday Whimsy items here.

We also have some pretty new note cards just in. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week! Hopefully I can find a minute to blog here and there. I have just been so busy. . but that's a good thing. :)

Where does the time go?

It has been such a busy week! Here it is almost Friday and I have not blogged in a week! I have been working to get things ready for the holidays, spending time at my son's school, doing Mommy and me class with my DD and working on custom orders! I wish there were more hours in the day. We are trying our hardest to have some new items added to the site soon. In the meantime here are a few things we managed to get done.

Fall is in the Air. .. .

Well, it's in my head at least. We are still in the thick of summer weather here with temps in the upper 90's -100+. So I shut myself up in the cool a/c and pretend the leaves are falling and there is a cool breeze blowing. Crazy. . maybe, or maybe all this heat is going to my head.

Well, crazy or not. . we invite you to join us in beginning to ring in a new season with pretty home accents and goodies to get you in the mood to begin packing away summer and ushering in a new season. Make Mine Pink Friday's theme this week is Around the House. It is perfect as many of us (me included) will be spending the holiday weekend here at home with family, beginning to pack away summer bit by bit. What could be better than that? Well, add a little shopping to the mix and I'd say it is near perfection. Hope you enjoy a look at what's new this week. Stop on by for more goodies!

Oh, and I also wanted to share with you a little reminder that we all to have a little Faith sometimes. . be it in yourself, or something bigger.
