monthly sale notecards announcement!

hi friends!

hope all of your summers are off to a swinging start!  ours began with a bang: preschool graduation, a beach trip, a fun week of VBS and a little boy turning SIX.  how in the world that is possible, i don’t even know.  i’m hoping to do a separate post on his birthday party soon, and also some really fun party & wedding posts, so stay tuned!!

but today, i’m here to tell you about something new that i’m doing – introducing a monthly sale notecard!  you see, i have SO VERY MANY envelope liners here in the worldwide HQ.  way too many.  in order to clear out some liner patterns that i had low inventory on or that had been discontinued, i had a mini-cleanout sale back in may.  it was great fun, and i love being able to give people a bargain!!  i sold sets of 12 personalized notecards with lined envelopes for $18 – half price, and also in a quantity that is perfect for gifts that i usually don’t offer.  after it was over, i thought – why not do this on a monthly basis with a different notecard each month?  this way, there is always a lower priced option for people, and also a great gift idea for teachers, friends, what have you.  they will be different from month to month; sometimes they’ll be for women and girls, sometimes for little boys…  you’ll just have to wait and see. :)

the monthly sale notecard for june is now live in the etsy shop!  i love these for girls of any age.  the notecards feature a pink name with an aqua heart, paired with an aqua envelope and fun pink/white geometric patterned liner that i’ve always loved.  you can purchase them here, and if you’d like more than 12, you can order as many sets as you wish at that price! this will be up until june 30th, so get your order in while supplies last.

rockabye baby

hello there!!

so…i’m still alive.  i survived the sleepless nights with the baby, it seems…  so maybe life is on its way back to being a little bit normal, or the new normal anyway.  we actually went out of town sans kids this past weekend for my college friend stephanie’s wedding – omg!  it was great to get away and have a little fun with old friends.  i was gently prodded to blog more, or…ever, by some friends there and i thought – they’re right!  i have a lot of posts i owe you.  tons of weddings (does anyone not love wedding photos?), before & after house posts and the damn KITCHEN!  i agree, that whole thing is ridiculous.  but i really will show it soon!

first, today – i bring you an adorable baby shower with a rocking horse theme.  there is a great neighborhood here in atlanta (that we almost bought a house in many moons ago) called castlewood, and in it is a street named rockingham.  my client and the guest of honor both live on that street, so she thought, why not throw her a rocking horse themed shower?  i love it.  here are the invitations…

and the shower – how beautiful.
