merry christmas - 2010


merry christmas! this is our card this year... tried to spruce it up with a sparkly envelope liner to distract from having a cute picture, i think it worked. who wants a cute picture of us anyway? i always favor photos with real, human babies.

ombre nails - lavender



if i can't have lavender hair, might has well have lavender nails...

spent some time last week researching ombre nails and finally acheived the look with a little trial & error. experimenting with nail polish feels like junior high again!

whimsical college graduation announcements



this past month, i had the pleasure of creating these grad school graduation announcements for a friend, carly. i met carly in spanish class about four years ago at texas state and now she's gone on to be one of the smarties!

when she sent me her pictures of inspiration for the announcement, more than half of them were the exact same pictures that i had saved in my own 'pretty things' file! i knew right away it was going to be a good match.

so yeah, if you ever need invitations, announcements, save-the-dates, whatevs.. i'd love to work with you.

simple breakfasts are my fav




have a day off today, so i got to make a proper breakfast! obsessed with this darjeeling-looking orange tea tin. looking forward to using it as a little flower vase when the tea is gone.

don't you just love those large shredded wheats? i've been looking for them for awhile and they happen to be at fiesta!
