Erika & Dena | KNOW SHOW & TELL | promotional business photos ft. wayne

I have known Erika for several years— we go way back to my days at the Jackson Sun. She was my dearest friend there and in her I found a kindred spirit. She is much cooler then I am, but truly one of the few people in the world that I know that views life […]

Onesie themed shower party for my friend Sarah!

I’ll be honest I love to plan parties. I think it goes back to college when my roommates and I loved to throw parties or actually now  that I really think of it, we only planned one real party– but it was a winter gala complete with sparkly silver and blue paper, mini quiches and […]

Everything came out so great! I’m so glad to see you didn’t fulfill my prophecy of you sweating it out to pipe the onesies. BTW, Sarah just might be the cutest ever pregnant lady. She really does look like she just has a basketball under her shirt.

Oh my goodness! I love, love, love all of it. The next person I know that has a baby is getting a shower just like this. So creative:)

ha ha! So True Anna! 🙂 I think Sarah’s a pretty cute pregnant lady too! I love that she’s always in some fab little dress with boots!

I love the photo-booth area idea…

When you did your raindrop strings, how long were the strings?

How many strings do you think you had?

I love this idea and I am putting on a shower for my daughter in January.


admin - January 5, 2012 - 2:59 pm

I did about 2 dozen strings of raindrops maybe more. They hung from the ceiling to the floor, so maybe about 10 feet?

Oh I love Amy Butler fabrics…I even have one of her sewing books (baby projects). She has the cutest stuff! I didn’t know that she had rugs! Thanks for sharing!

Of course! love that she’s from the midwest and love her design aesthetic even more. how is the baby project book? i introduced one of my friends to the fabrics and she is now using them to make curtains and bedding for her new nursery. i suggested the baby project book, but i don’t know that i’ve ever seen it in real life.

I saw these and flipped! Love them! Of course I found these AFTER I bought an Ikea rug I’m only half liking….go figure.

Miss you!

where to get cute hairbows for kiddos?

Ever wonder where does everyone get those cute hair bows, little hats with flowers, cute diaper covers, etc?  I submit to you one of my favorite online pleasures: you may have heard me mention it before.  It is kind of like ebay, only for artisans and crafters.   You can find virtually anything on […]
