I have just discovered this evening that the order form on the new site hasn't been notfying me of new entries since February 1st. If you have sent me an order form and haven't heard back from me, I am doing my best now to respond. Because of this new discovery of several new design orders, I will be closing my wait list until further notice so that I can accomodate those of you who haven't heard from me. I am so sorry for any inconvenience this has caused those waiting and those who are interested in a design at this time. Thanks so much for your patience and understanding!

my fave present (and WINNER) revealed!

I have loved reading over the comments on the giveaway and seeing what all of your favorite birthday presents have been! I had a really great birthday this year. My super cute and thoughtful husband Kevan got me what I think might be one of my favorite presents ever. A Texas necklace!  If you know me at all, you know that great state is near and dear to me.

Some of my dearest friends spoiled me with some great gifts, too. Look - there's Texas again (with a heart over my hometown!). Such a sweet and perfect embroidery by my friend Penny. Do yourself a favor and check out her Etsy. She's so creative and talented. Melissa gave me the super cute mug, and Jen gave me that beautiful soap dish! Thanks, lovelies!

Enough about what was given to me - let's get on to what I'm giving to one of you! We have a winner!

Yay! I've known Jessica since college and she has always been such a dedicated Redbud fan. She enters all of my giveaways (and usually has her hubs enter, too), so I am beyond thrilled to give this gift to her! Shoot me an email sometime, Jessica, and we'll talk about how you'll be using your $80!

Thanks to all who entered. I am honored by and grateful for each one of you!

birthdays on the brain

In my family, there are several birthdays within a couple of weeks at the end of February and beginning of March. About a week ago, my precious nephew celebrated his first birthday. I was honored to design the invite for his first party!

My niece's birthday was yesterday, mine is today, and my brother's is in a few days. Up at the end of March would be my little girl Merit's THIRD birthday. I've been working on her invitation design, and we had a backyard photo shoot yesterday to try to get a good pic for the invite. These four are my will I ever choose??

Speaking of birthdays, don't forget to enter the birthday week giveaway for $80 Redbud shop credit. You don't have to use it toward a blog design...maybe you also have a birthday celebration coming up that needs an invitation! OR maybe you could give it as a birthday present to someone you love. Whatever you'd choose to do with it, you can't win if you don't enter. Feel free to do so before the end of the day Sunday!
