Baby Shower Designs [Part 1]

A friend recently asked me to create some wonderful designs for her sister's baby shower!  She knew exactly what she wanted, colors, theme, style and everything and I got to put everything together!  This project was soo exciting and fun because her idea for the theme was so unique.   It was 'rock-a-bye baby'!  Here's how everything turned out, let me know what you think!  [I'll be putting some of these for sale in my Etsy shop soon].  Enjoy.

1st Birthday Party [Part 1]

A few months ago a friend and I started working on designs for her daughter's 1st birthday party [similar to the items I did for the last birthday party]!  The concept is the sweetest, little chicks!  She sent me a picture of her daughter's cutest little pajamas and from that I developed these 'rough' designs, just as a starting off point.  More to come later on what we decided on and the rest of the final items!

Letterpress Drawer Upcycling

The other day I stumbled upon this Etsy shop, and it is now become one of my favorites!
I love when transforming something rather mundane turns it into something functional and beautiful.  Especially something like a 'Letterpress Drawer' or Printer Drawer that has been used in a cool setting to do a lot of things, but is now simply outdated and unused.
 Here's an example of one of these drawers as they used to function.  So many people are upcycling these and thinking of new and cool ways to use these pieces.  I'm loving it!  4EyesandEars Shop is using these same 'letterpress drawers' to create a wine cork boards. 
And Xenasdad Shop is creating furniture out of these! Lovely. And another example of their work here

I get so excited by up-cycling like this.  I'll keep passing on more ideas when I see them.  I think this could be goal to find at the swap meets this summer.  But where to put it in the house....mm.

Return Address Labels

In my spare time (which is more and more sparse lately, thanks to all of you who've got me doing freelance work for you!) I've been working to develop a set of customizable return address labels. 
Here's the first preview with more to come soon!

Awesome Decor Idea!

Today I found this amazing transformation home decor project!  Here on the blog The Wright Family blog, she has turned a beautiful vintage window into something lovely and functional!  I love this project, in fact I'm thinking of trying to find something this summer to do this with. 
Sorry for the lack of posts lately, but more new designs/products to come very soon!
