I am looking forward to 2010 - I honestly believe it will be my best year ever and I hope and pray it will be yours too. This is all for now - but soon I will be posting my goals for myself and my business. I wish all of you a Happy New Year.

Sweet Madyson

I gave my dear friend Meghan of Soli Photography's daughter Madyson this cute little custom tshirt and headband for her birthday.

She then went and gifted me these beautiful photos of her daughter in them. Madyson makes my work look adorable and Meghan's pictures capture them beautifully.




Thanks to both of you girls - I love you both dearly and I am SO glad you are a part of my world (along with Eric & Beasley) :) xo

A Little View Into my Christmas World

Here is a little taste of my Christmas Decorations - I didn't go all out this year, but I did put my favorites up. I hope you enjoy. I hope all of you have a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends. Mine was awesome and I look forward to a new year ahead! xo

This is a Santa Claus my mother made - I treasure it.....
These are a happy little pair that hang out in my kitchen
This Santa Claus my dad made - and it means the world to me.
This is a funny little reindeer with a Glitterville hat
A wreath in the bathroom that reminds us all to play
I have a slight addiction to tinsel trees :)
Another glitterville hat with some pink bottle brush trees
a beautiful handblown glass tree goes beautifully alongside my Stray Dog Designs Tree

And just in case you forgot here is another shot of our white tree that was a beautiful addition to our decor this year.

It's The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. I just wanted to say hello since I have been a COMPLETE slacker on my blog lately - promise I will pick it back up in the new year. I am so looking forward to a weekend away with friends and family at a cabin in Georgia. This weekend is way needed - so until next week - xo

Recap of ICE Atlanta

Here is the only somewhat full booth shot I took of my work - I kept forgetting to take pictures. So here is what I have - and an awesome overhead shot with me in it that I took from the ICE Atlanta's Flickr Site.
My sweet friend Tanya of Mod Meadow Studio had another rockin' ICE and I was excited to be next to her again this year. I couldn't have done it without her and Jay :) Thanks again my friends!



And I leave you with an awesome article in the AJC - Access Atlanta and if you look through the few pics included in the photo album you will notice TWO featuring Ivey Handcrafted!!! See below for the pics! Photos by JAMIE GUMBRECHT / JGUMBRECHT@AJC.COM

My New Find

I was searching for Christmas presents for myself - my hubby and I put lists together so we each know what the other wants. Well I had this on my list...but I just couldn't wait. I was so afraid Anthropologie would sell out...and I just couldn't let that happen :)

So here is my new necklace - I can't WAIT for it to get here!!

Normalpalooza 2009

This years Normalpalooza was a fabulous day. From the incredible weather - I had sunshine on my booth the whole day as you can see in these pictures :) I would complain that I couldn't get a great shot, but who can complain about beautiful weather at an art show? Of course it made it even better that I was between my best art friends Beth Gumnick and Steve Swayne - they make every show fun. We are a great team! So here are a few shots - including some detail shots of my new Eco Barrettes and Headbands. Enjoy and thanks to EVERYONE who came out and helped make it a fabulous day! And thanks to all the volunteers for helping out with the day!
