About Me

You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
I'm a mother and wife, whether I'm at home or not. I love my job and my career because I get to be creative every day and I get to travel just enough.

I'm a Tarheel, a Christian, a Southerner, a Pink Pacer, a marketer and a jack-of-all-trades.

My hobbies are many, my friendships are abundant, my family is everything and my son is the light of my life.

I live in North Carolina and love the south. I decided to call this blog "A Southern Accent" because I do get so many comments on my accent (always from people that aren't from around these parts) and because not until I grew up and interacted with people from other areas of the country and world did I realize how different things are here in the south. For example, some people have never tasted grits and have never had fried okra. Don't even get me started on sweet tea. For me, the south is a way of life with a style like no other and I hope I can share some of that with my readers.

I started this blog as a way to focus my creative spirit and it's been a blast! I hope you have as much fun here as I do. Thanks for stopping by!

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!
