Isn't it crazy how expensive greeting cards are in the stores? I was out getting a card the other day (yes, eve  I still run to grab one at the store from time to time) and I couldn't believe the price for just a plain old card. Nothing fancy mind you. So I came home and got to work on some new cards for our Parisian Delights category. Hope you enjoy them!

Dusting Off The Cobwebs. . . .

 Yes I am finally getting a quiet moment to do a little blog post. It has been a busy summer with most of it spent doing painting projects around the house and keeping little hands and minds busy and out of trouble! :) I always think once everyone is asleep I will sneak out and give my poor neglected blog some love but next thing I know I have knocked out for the night. Just not a night owl, never have been!

 One project I recently finished was embellishing this old wicker dress form I came across. I used lots of vintage lace and some handmade coffee filter flowers. Her name is Annie and she is now available here!

 I have been playing around and making all sorts of flowers lately out of various papers including coffee filters and am loving the results. So quick and easy to do. I would do a tutorial but there are so many out there I just played around and found what worked for me.

 We also added several new journals to the shop and have more coming soon!

We have completed several paint projects the last few weeks. Here is our fireplace getting prepped for it's makeover. It was painted an awful burgundy and white when we moved in. I have been itching to change it and finally just went for it!

Here is the finished product! It is painted "white muslin" with black interior. We don't plan on using it so I am hoping to get some large pillar candles for it and eventually a large vintage mantle to put in front. In the mean time it looks so much better than our old eyesore. I am now anxious to paint the rest of the living room and hopefully we will tackle that monster this fall. We also painted my son's room and our bedroom which was a major redo. I will share those with you soon. :)

Between the painting and creating, and with everyone home for just a few more weeks I am spending as much time as possible just hanging out and having fun with my family! Lots of day trips including this one to the L.A. Arboretum, one of our favorite hangouts! 

Happy Summer!

Growing Up!

My baby girl is growing up! She is 7 months old now and time is just flying by. This week she tackled many firsts from crawling and standing on her own to getting 2 more teeth. I am so grateful for every moment with all three of my babies!

Just had to share! :)

Spring Treats

I'm not quite sure where my days go but every time I turn around another week has passed me by! I have been busy creating the past few weeks and listing all morning on my site. I hope you will hop on over and see what's new! Here is a look at what I have been up to.

Miss Evangeline had to model a crown I was working on!


Happy Creating!

Tick Tock

Time is just flying by. . . each day passing in the blink of an eye. Evangeline is 4 1/2 months old now, growing like a weed! She is 15 lbs and 26 inches long. Each day with her is such a gift. She is rolling over, starting to sit up and chats up a storm. Such a little blessing to our family!

New Year, New Treats!

Wow! I can't believe it was October when I last posted. It was a busy holiday here and I am really happy to have the New Year upon us. As I sit here typing I have my sweet little Evangeline napping on my lap. She is 3 months old today and is growing by leaps and bounds. She is always chattering and cooing, and is the happiest baby. She is such a doll and her strawberry blond hair is beginning to come in.

On the creative front we have been busy the last few days getting ready for Valentine's Day (my favorite) and we will be listing tons of new items all week long. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter for updates and special offers this month. Here is a little preview of what's coming.

~Wishing You A Happy New Year!~
