go make a bid!

I am honored to be a part of an online auction going on at my friend Cassie's blog. She will be participating in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer and all proceeds from her auctions will go to support the cause. Currently, she has a super fun birthday package auction for a custom bib, cupcake picks, and a Redbud invitation design. Go HERE to start bidding! It ends Friday, May 1st, at 10pm. Good luck!

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to participate, Cassie!

Two of my good friends here in Nashville have precious etsy stores, and I was honored to design their banners. Please visit their stores, and have your credit cards handy because you are sure to find something irresistible.

Penny's shop is called Gracey May. She makes and sells the cutest hand-embroidered things with the perfect vintage feel. If I could, I would have her come add a sweet little embroidered design to every curtain, pillow, and towel in my house.


Jennifer's shop is called Wee Little House. She sells adorable handmade felted items, as well as lovely vintage novelties and fabrics that she finds on her routine thrift and antique outings. She also has a Wee Little House blog. I am eyeing this sweet "found" thing and can't get enough of this cute "felted" thing


Thanks, Penny and Jenn, for letting me design your banners! Both of you are so talented and creative...your shops are sure to be successful.

small world...

One of my favorite things about having this business so far is hearing how I am connected to each client. Most of my designs recently have been for people I don't know personally, but because of the way the internet works these days, I always find a connection. 

This design was for Devin, the winner of one of my giveaways. She went to college with my cousin. 

As I've mentioned before, when it comes to Redbud clients, Devin is probably my most loyal! I recently did this design for her husband's birthday.

Allison lives in ABILENE, my hometown. I will always be excited to do designs for fellow Abilenians!

Kelly and I both attended ACU. She was there a few years before me and knows both of my sisters-in-law.

Another Abilene connection...I recently did this birth announcement for a girl named Betsy, whose husband is a Jeep man!

I went to ACU and was in club with Abbe and her sister, Linde. Abbe's son, Avery, just turned one!

These next few designs hit a little closer to home. Lindsay has been one of my best friends since we were in 3rd grade. I am so thankful for her friendship and was excited to give her a new blog design.

Even first niece, Macy, turned five last month. I can't believe she is already five. She celebrated with a swimming princess party!

And, finally, this is about as close to me as one can get...I carried her for 9 months! My baby girl, Merit, turned ONE a couple of weeks ago. We had tons of fun at her party, and I am already brainstorming for next year!
