Deona's Sleepy Little Dreams

One of my most favorite artists - her pieces take me to another place...a magical wonderland. This weekend I had the pleasure of seeing Deona again and added to my collection. I came home and wanted to brag on her and tell everyone how beautiful her work is. So take a look at my little collection and go find something for yourself ;) And thanks Deona for being my friend and an awesome art addition to my home :) Hope to see you soon! xo

A HUGE honor

So my dear friends Rich & Heather Smith are expecting their second baby and they asked me to be a part of the unveiling. I didn't even know what to say - but when Heather called me and asked me to make a big sister shirt for Alana - it brought tears to my eyes. What a wonderful thing to be a part of? And I thought this was such a great way to announce it - I hope to be a part of more beautiful moments like this. Thank you Rich, Heather & Alana for the opportunity. LOVE YOU GUYS!
For bigger pics and the original post go here and here is a link to her Ivey Handcrafted posts of previous projects.

I can't wait to meet your new addition and spoil them with Ivey Handcrafted originals. XO

For a fun new treat you must check out Heather and her sister Amber's new adventure - STRUT! and for more beautiful photography work check out Heather & Rich's photography website here

Happy Mother's Day

On this day I am so blessed to have my mother. She is my best friend - and the most wonderful mother I know. I only hope I am half the mother she is when I finally become a mother. This is a mixed emotion day for me - I am very happy celebrating all my friends and family who are mothers, but also sad when thinking how long I have wanted to be one myself. But here's hoping this is my last mother's day of just being a fur baby mom. To all of you cherish those babies and kids you have. I can't wait to be just like you. And thank you to the wonderful mothers in my life for being amazing role models. I LOVE EACH OF YOU!

A few more thank yous :)

To my other mom, my mother in law Patti - I am so thankful for you and love you for raising such an amazing man. I am so lucky to be your daughter in law. Next to my own momma you are rock star mom to me and I am so glad to have married your son and gotten a great "other" mother :)
To our Aunt Cindy - thank you for being such a positive role model in my life - you are like a mom to me and I love you SO much. Thank you for being Corey's other raised quite an awesome young man. And thank you for being such an amazing mom to Adrian - he is one of the best kids I know :)
My bug and sister in law. Thanks for being my friend and sister. And most of all thank you for being an amazing mother to my niece and nephew. They are two of best things in my life and they wouldn't be here without you. I love you
To Laura my god children's mom - you are one of the best moms I know. I love you for being my dear friend and a wonderful mother to my two special kids.

Soli Photography

I am so fortunate to have friends who take pictures of my work. And these are some of my favorites. I embellished this green dress for my friend Meghan's daughter Madyson and knew that it would just look adorable on her. I love the dress but I also think it might be the cutest thing in the world that Madyson is wearing her orange tutu underneath. I love little girls with their own fashion sense ;) Original Blog Post and larger photos Here
and just one more - a photo of Meghan and I - I am lucky to call her my friend :)
