floral love

I noticed in the latest J. Crew catalog that they are carrying a few new shirts in London’s Liberty Art prints. Makes me want to wear one while writing a thank you note on my vintage floral cards.

Happy Memorial Day!

I am thoroughly enjoying this long weekend and hope you are too!  I wanted to give a quick shout out to my mom who just opened up an etsy store with all of her vintage finds! Right now it is all books, but she will be adding more items soon. Check it out!

hello there

I have added a new everyday card to my etsy shop, as well as a mothers day card. I felt the need to design something this weekend, I hope you like it! In addition to the cards on my shop, you can download a version of the mothers day card for free from my Downloads page.

shop update

So, you know you are officially an adult/parent when your response to how was your weekend?! is Great! Saturday we bought a new car seat! What did you do?

In other news, I finally updated my shop! A few weekends ago Bryan sensed that I needed some me time. Time at home alone where I could do some sewing/crafting without feeling guilty for not cleaning or doing housework. If you are a parent you probably understand. Time home alone, and time during naps, its like a race against yourself. How much can I get done in 30 minutes? An hour? Two hours? (Who am I kidding, Declan has never taken a two hour nap in his crib.) For instance, Bryan took Declan with him to Lowe’s and Stater Bro’s yesterday. In that hour I cleaned both toilets, started laundry, picked up the insane amount of toys in the living room, took a shower, did my hair and makeup, got dressed, and ¬†probably another thing or two. I didn’t sit once. I felt pretty accomplished afterwards. Quite possibly a personal best. Okay, that was a total tangent. The purpose of the story: Bryan gave me time to sit. And sew. And enjoy my hobby. It was really nice. So now the shop is updated and I hope to keep it up. Maybe just one or two cards a week (month?), enough to satisfy my sewing cravings.

Editing photos of my new cards. It’s amazing how a lens can make cards look so pretty.


The shop should be updated soon!

Hello Monday

Hello! I hope you all had a nice weekend! We are starting to feel winter here with cold weather and a little rain on Saturday. Once it cleared up I took Declan to an antique store and then for a quick trip inside the San Juan Capistrano Mission. On Sunday Bryan took Declan out for a few hours, giving me some much needed alone time with my sewing machine! I finished a lot of cards and once I photograph them I will be restocking my etsy shop! To top it off the Giants won, which makes Bryan happy. All in all it was a good weekend!
