Free Fretwork

I've become obsessed with the Chippendale Fretwork print. I didn't know what it was called (or even how to start looking for it), until I did a little Google research but I finally came across some info on Thomas Chippendale, the 18th century furniture maker. Thomas is typically known for his "Chippendale Furniture", but he also had a style called Gothic Fret, which was influenced by Chinese art and design. This is where the Chippendalte Fretwork print comes from.

Where am I going with this?

Well, I wanted to design something to put in my hall that incorporates the fretwork print. I wanted it to be light and colorful, but still be retro, modern and fun at the same time! I've finally come up with the below artwork and I've ordered my prints via mail and they will be here soon! The pic below shows them with a bamboo frame, just something I was playing around with online, but I think maybe I'll be able to go to TJ Maxx and find some fun frames that would work.


So, I wanted to offer my readers this artwork as well. If you'd like copies of all Four Fretwork prints (prints do not include the frame and are designed at high resolution for a 8 x 10 frame), simply leave me a comment here with your e-mail or e-mail me at and let me know you're interested. I'll e-mail you the files for the prints and you can play around with printing them out for your own home. Cost to you: $0.00!

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
