Memorial Day Sale Going on now!

Tuesday, May 22, 2012

Father's Day is JUST around the corner!
A new keepsake design is now available in the shop perfect for all the dads and granddads in your life.
Handsome combination of robin's egg blue and GUNmetal gray.
GUNmetal gray...mucho manly, no?
I thought so.





Great for showing off the kiddos at the workplace or home office.






And with summer now underway for us, I've already been thinking of our family's summer beach getaway.
I thought you all just might be thinking the same thing with the kiddos now out for summer.

A beachy distressed look, perfect for displaying your family's vacation photos if you're just so lucky enough to be heading to some Exotic Island...or as is the case for us, Gulf Shores, Alabama.
Adventurous world travelers, we are.
Either way, it's a great way to remember that special summer vacation with family.
I can already visualize photos of sun kissed families dressed in all white with sandy beaches in the background.
It makes this southern girl happy.







The official start of summer for most is considered Memorial Day.
Take advantage of this start of summer week-long sale going on now in the shop for all of my Facebook followers!

Teacher Appreciation Gifts {Welcome to Summer!}

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

So it's 5 o'clock in the evening on the official first day of summer for the boys and
I.Am.Exhausted.
Whew.
This is going to take some getting used to again.

So far both of my boys have played wayyy too much Angry Birds today, both on the computer and in their made up plush toy version in our living room. Can I just say that I want the Angry Birds to skip town...fly north for the summer..something.

Yesterday was the last day of school for them and their end of the year program. It was a great year for both of them and they have grown so much since the Fall. They had great teachers and so we had to come up with something cute for them to show our appreciation for the year they've had.

I've been on a yellow kick again lately so I wanted to do a new Teachers Gift Edition Sunshine in a Box version, if you will.



Like I did on the previous version, I took small little everyday things and repackaged them to make them even cuter....with the exception of those cookies!
Those babies are handmade with love. Lots of it.
They are everything you want a Lemon Sugar Cookie to be!
Soft. Chewy. Perfect.
I purchased this E-Cook book several weeks back and was looking for an excuse to bake them up.
Fabulous.
Next up on my list to try....the Cinnadoodles.
I'm confident they will not disappoint.




I put together a cute little "Keep Calm" insert and some bag tags and toppers to go along with the summer theme.




What else says summer like a comfy pair of flip flops?



Lemonade packets
Plastic Lemon Tumbler Cup
Lemon notepad
Lemon Head Candy
Old Fashioned Soft Lemon Candy

You get the idea.






Here are my little gift-givers during their program yesterday.
Reeves kills me.
He didn't sing a lick, but he sure looked adorable playin' it cool with his hands in his pockets the entire time.




Time to break out that calender and start filling it up with summer activities to keep our family sane this summer!



{Cow}Girls just wanna have fun!

Monday, May 7, 2012

I had the pleasure of working recently with a customer on a special order. She did a photoshoot of three of her daughters in a cowgirl theme/setting. She did a fabulous job with it and I was happy to create some keepsakes using her work.



We opted for a cow print, black and white damask and red and pink checkered prints to tie them all together. Fun and girly sayings on the backsides amped up the cute factor.





I thought they turned out really sweet and I couldn't have asked for a more friendlier and lovely lady to work with. Thank you, Nicole!




The shop has been super busy with baptism and Mother's Day orders the past several weeks. Thank you to everyone who has placed an order in the shop recently!
I'll be working on some Father's Day options in the coming days and will be sharing those soon. I know Mother's Day kinda always gets the spotlight, but we can't forget dad. They don't often get the acknowledgement they rightfully deserve. Fathers have a unique and special place in the life of children.
As for my own children, they are greatly blessed to have such an involved and great man in their lives.

Blessed indeed is the man who hears many gentle voices call him father!
