As I was Saying...

I heart Pinterest...and I am spending way too much time there.
However, I am finding quite the assortment of awesomeness so I'm not complaining too much.

Case in point:

How did I miss this cover back in February?  I think this just may be my new haircut.  It's adorable. I've been wanting something short and cute...this might be it! 

Oh Pinterest does it again.  Now I can totally justify the hours I just whittled away there...

Happy Friday all!

Playing with My Designs!

Made this today...
using all my own products!  

Yay!!  If you like what you see, head on over to my new little shop and take a peek! I used paper and elements from my Joy in the Morning collection to create this layout...and, not gonna lie, I am kinda pleased with how it turned out ;)

p.s. I think I heard a rumor that items in the shop are 30% off through October 30th...such a deal!

Just Wanted to Point Out....

New Obsession

Pinterest is my new obsession.  I'm a little late in the game, I know I know...my fave bloggers have been raving about it for ages but I just never really took a moment to pop over and see what the hype was about.  This weekend however I did and OH WOW!  My life will never be the same.  I plan on blaming my future lack of productivity to this site alone.

Here are some examples of the awesomeness I found on Pinterest this weekend:
Cute button magnets...such an easy fun craft...I like easy fun crafts.

Um hello...are there even any words to accurately express the cuteness here?

 And a really pretty wedding dress.

I could go on and on about all the magical finds...but I have work to do ;)

It's Official!

Ok ok ok...so it's been a few days since I last posted...
Alright, more like two whole months...BUT...I have a really really really good reason!! 

And here it is:

Yep, I've started my own lil design business!  And that's my logo.  Kinda cute, huh?  And it's official too, I have a business license and everything! 

I've wanted to do this for a long time and am so excited for this new journey.  I love creating beautiful things...playing with fonts and colors, taking photos and manipulating them, drawing and illustrating...I want to use this love of mine to make people smile, to do my part in spreading joy and happiness in the world.

I will be designing invitations and announcements and other various print commissions, as well as my own line of digital scrapbook products that will be on sale for the first time ever tomorrow!  Siri (a fabulous designer friend of mine) is opening an online digital scrapbook store and asked me to be on the design team.  I was so honored.  I think she is just going to be fabulously successful!  Check out the shop HERE...and take a peek at my goodies!  All items are not for sale until 7am MST tomorrow, but you can still take a look-see now ;)

I hope you like what you see! 

P.S.  the products don't seem to have any sort of organization at the moment, so mine are just all mixed in with everyone else's...
