summer is for celebrating

Well friends, a lot has happened in the last few months and the blog was not one of them. Just a week after I finished working and I thought I would be staying at home, I was offered another job working part-time with hours from home. It was such a blessing to be able to continue working, while still being able to be home with our daughter. I learned quickly however, that working from home is difficult and there is not much else you can get done. Hence, the halt on the blog progress again. But NOW, that is finished and maybe, just maybe, we can get to posting some projects and ideas again.

For now, here are some of the fun ways we are celebrating summer this year…

// SOMEONE turned ONE! We still can’t believe it. So we had a party (details HERE!) //

New items on ETSY! Baby love

We’re so excited!! Last week we released some new items to our ETSY shop for our baby line! After having a girl, I learned about a ton of new “baby accessories” that exist and wanted to see what I could come up with on my own! I also started thinking about some fun things I could make for a first birthday party (crazy that our baby girl is closer to 1 than she is to a newborn already!). Here is a preview of some things we’ve released that we LOVE!
