Birthday Month!!

Yeah, it's my birthday month again! I love birthdays and this year I'm going to be 35!!! A couple of months ago I was feeling stressed about turning 35, but the closer I get to it, the more OK with it I seem to be. It just seems like a milestone birthday or something to me - like everything goes downhill from there....but I'm hoping that's not true!

So, of course, I had to put together a wish list of things I'd love to receive for my birthday. Someone please tell my husband to read my blog!!!

First up, the print that inspired my plan for my downstairs family room.

Chuck Taylors in Blue (Size 9 by the way)

The Capri Blue jar candle from Anthropologie. Have you ever smelled these things? If you've ever been in an Anthropologie store you surely have. They are heavenly.

This fabulous printer to print items in my Etsy shop and invitations, special order requests I'm starting to get from friends and family!

So what about you other Cancers out there? What's on your list? Or for those with birthdays coming up in August and September, do you already have your list started?


  1. I have a March birthday but I have a list on That way when Christmas or Mother's Day or my birthday roll around, I will remember what it is I want. Fabulous. Much.

  2. I am in love with that print and am now very curious to see how your family room came out! What a great inspiration!

  3. Happy early Birthday! The older I get the older I want to make myself, I keep thinking I'm a year older than I really am... it's weird (I'm 33) but I love my older self.

    I also love that print also and the shoes too. I'd love to see a pic of your finished room.

  4. hey there - those are some awesome gifts - so did you get all of them?? I love that print :)

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!
