I have been wanting a cute message board in my kitchen so I can write inspirational quotes, reminders, Honey-Dos, and more. There was a similar butcher paper design on Pinterest, and my husband and I decided to Jazz in up a bit. We stained all the wood, and found colored butcher paper. My favorite part is the stained carved trim. Hope you like it!

This was the original I saw on pinterest….


How We Met

I made this graphic for my welcome bags for my wedding. We printed it on cream/ecru card stock, and tied it on light green bags with gold ribbon. I could not have done it without my sister, mom, and bridesmaids! The back of the tags had a picture of us, and a sweet letter to the out of town guests.


Ruffles and Florals

When my mom, Β mother-in-law, and I found my wedding shoes, the rest of the wedding was easy to plan! The colors and feminine ruffles were the inspiration for the decor at the wedding. These are my shoes, and the pillows we place on banquettes.



This project was really fun! I used lyrics from some of my favorite Christmas songs, a font that looks like stitching, and I created a stitch-like poinsettia pattern! See how it turned out!

This is the electronic copy I created.
Next, I printed it out on pearly/ shimmery cream paper.
Then I used an Exacto knife, a ruler, and a self- healing cutting mat to cut them out. Obviously you can use scissors too!
MY favorite is “Jesus, Born on this Day”
Finished and on the gift! (or you can punch a whole and tie onto present!)

Our First Christmas Tree

This has been a very exciting season so far, and its only DECEMBER 1st! I finally got the house all decorated and ready for the festivities that December will bring! Chris and I have had a blast getting the house all decorated, so I hope you enjoy! We decorated with a lot of copper and brown, maybe in the future we can mix in a fun color!

Mustard brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season. Like a filtered sunset on the waning days of fall, Mustard is a warm yellow with a subtle army green undertone. Looks great paired with deep teals.
