west elm trays

I love these affordable and very cute trays from West Elm. I really love trays these days, they help me keep keys, earrings, change, etc. from getting lost, or eaten by my child! I need one for my bedside table...

black and pink

This picture came from Martha Stewart...I've been working on my little projects for etsy and I seem to be making a lot that is black and pink. I love the contrast of a color that can be sort of harsh with a color that is perceived as sweet and precious. Its a stunning combination and I don't think it gets old. I will list some things on etsy very very soon! I've been sort of dealing with a bunch of crazy things at once.

DIY sneak peek

Today I made a necklace out of a doily, lace, and scraps of fabric. I'm hoping it will be featured as a DIY on a wedding blog soon. Oh and my boxes came for my Etsy items, so I can put them up soon! I couldn't list them until I had something cute to ship them in:-).

hilary cosgrove

I came across a gal named Hilary Cosgrove online today and was really intrigued by the things she makes. She turns old suits and felt into sweet little owls and letters. You should check out her etsy shop! Very cute:-).

Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe!!!

I'm going to take a moment to brag about my friend! My friend Christina started a little bake shop called Sweet Lavender Bake Shoppe from her home not super long ago. She makes the most amazing treats! She and I are a lot alike. I think this past year we both decided(separately) it was time to just take the plunge and start our own little businesses. Its not easy starting out, for either of us. But this gal is quite talented and like me will do anything custom! Check out those Hello Kitty decorations she made below! Send her an email and order something yummy, you won't be disappointed!

vanilla bean marshmallows....need I say more?

So cute, right?

Sweet potato pie!!!

she's wraps things all cute!

Umm....that pie is sugar free! Yummy!

Tartan Christmas

Before Christmas Jodi( I put together a Christmas tablescape. It was featured on! I hope you enjoy the festive plaid, the sparkly golds and the crisp, clean florals by Janie of JM Flora.

This was my very first holiday inspired shoot. Stay tuned in February for a fun Valentines shoot!
