Lawn Fawn and Hero Arts


We've got a collaboration with Lawn Fawn coming up on ABNH so I was playing with some amazing new product from Lawn Fawn recently and came up with a couple of cards.

Thought I'd share one of them with you today :)

I've been hunting Pinterest a lot lately and I've been SO very inspired by Maile Belles.  I mean, MAN is she talented. That girl ROCKS the tilted cardstock too!! (Check out her blog, you'll see what I mean!) I think I just want to BE HER!

Anyway, I thought I'd go wtih a super cute little card and that bird?! It makes me so happy lol. SO CUTE.

ok, baby is awake so I have to run.

Back again soon!! xx

Welcome to my little Olivia

Hello friends!

I'm sure most of you know by now, but I thought I'd share with those of you who don't 'follow' me on twitter/facebook etc, that my little girl was born on August 30th.

She arrived after three days of contractions (so fun), but still a week early.

So far she is proving to be mostly, a very easy baby. She still has to learn to sleep better through the nights (especially since she sleeps so well in the daytime!) She's very much a Mama's girl and likes to stay close to me, but honestly, that's ok with me :)

Here are a couple of photos of her first days.

This is just an hour or two after she was born:

The next day when her big sisters met her :)

And a few days later, sending y'all a kiss!

I hope you'll forgive me for not blogging much for the next few weeks at least. I have a very good (and cute) reason :)

See you again soon
