New Home!

With the advent of my first Etsy shop, I've decided to start fresh with my blog and make the switch to WordPress. You can find me now at Hope to see you there!

Cause to Celebrate!

Our college minister (who also married us last June) and his wife have been in the adoption process for a little over a year and just found out that they get to bring home a little boy who is being born on May 15! They're going to be amazing parents, I'm so excited for them and can't wait to design their birth announcement. His name is going to be Lincoln, but I'm sure he'll be cuter than this one:

Babycakes Vegan Bakery

I caught a few minutes of the Martha Stewart show when we were at home for lunch today (Justin promptly put on his headphones to avoid craft overload) and my mouth started watering when I saw Erin McKenna of Babycakes NYC making the most delicious looking chocolate chip cookie sandwich in the world.

Giant piles of cookies and icing are healthy if they're vegan, right? She just released a cookbook which I think I might actually get. I love love love my sweets!

Feelin' Rustic

This box and many other beautifully crafted wooden boxes, sculptures and frames {made by SixthandElm} are in her etsy shop.

I love the woodburned type on this photo box. I would be much more likely to feature this on my coffee table than a typical photo album.

Mother's Day Gift

I just found the perfect personalized Mother's Day gift for my mother-in-law (who is the best mother-in-law ever). She collects spoons, so the second I saw this necklace by SpoonerZ I knew I'd have to get it. It's really affordable, too, which is great now that I have two moms to buy for! I'm thinking of maybe getting the numbers to her favorite verse engraved on it.
