hello there!!

i have been busy getting my holiday card ducks in a row, and am so excited to debut the new designs very soon!!  in the meantime, i’m offering free personalization on all “merry christmas” tags – check out all of the designs in the etsy shop here!  i’m selling them either in sets of 24, or in sets of 12 with ribbon.

for the personalization, i typically put “the xxx family” or first names underneath the “xoxo” in the small all caps font.  they look cute tied onto any gift and you can feel so ahead of the holiday gift-giving game having them all ready to go :)  only valid on orders placed through 9/30, so act fast!

also, there is just one more set of these cute woodland sale notecards up for grabs… i love these for little boys.

back soon with holiday cards and some exciting news!!!


shop happenings (including early bird holiday card special!)


have y’all had a good summer??  we sure have – but i just can’t believe it’s coming to an end?!  so wild.  i’m planning on doing a summer tidbits post to share what we’ve been up to, but in the meantime, wanted to let you know about some shop happenings!

we just launched our new “happy birthday” tags – right now, they are available in hot pink, navy, aqua and green (not pictured yet).  they can be blank or personalized, and look so cute on a present or gift bag!  i like these because they can be used for both adults and children.  love a multi-purpose item!  i’m doing a giveaway for a set of 24 personalized “happy birthday” tags in ink color of your choice on the facebook page right now!  go leave a comment before midnight on sunday, 8/16/2016, to be eligible.  i’ll announce the winner monday morning, 8/17/2015!  if you lose…they are available for purchase in the tag section of the etsy shop.

ALL birthday tags

also, it’s time to get the wheels turning on holiday cards!  crazy, right?  i mean it’s 90 degrees outside…but i like to give y’all some advance notice for early bird so you can book your photo session accordingly!  like last year, i am only accepting 25 early bird orders, and have a handful still available.  email me at to nab your spot!  same deal as usual: put down a $100 deposit, email me prior to 10/31/2015 with your photograph and card selection, and receive 25 free cards included in your order.  it’s a good deal!  i’ll be adding the new card designs in september, so you will have a bunch of fun new designs to choose from.  man, all of this holiday card talk is making me want a gingerbread spice latte.

we’ll do TWO sale notecard designs for september – get excited!!  i won’t be able to do the monthly sale notecards in october, november or december due to holiday card volume, so hopefully those can hold you over until january!

but for now…  we’ll hit the pool.
