 NY Summer Visit 2016 - Creative Index

So we've already been back about 2 weeks. And I already want to go back.
We didn't do anything that exciting. I didn't get to check out all my favorite spots or each at my favorite restaurants - all the Buffalo things I miss so much. At first I was a little bummed, but then, it didn't really matter to me. I really just enjoyed spending most of the time with family.

Etsy Favorite // Teeny Weenie Paper

Teeny Weenie Paper

I’ve admired Kelsie's work and humor on insta for sometime now and thought you should know about her too! ;)

If you’re looking for funny, sarcastic, and downright cute cards for any occasion, then you’ve gotta check out her Etsy shop, Teeny Weenie Paper. Her cards & paper goods have a playful charm and sense of humor to them and are sure to brighten anyone's day and bring a smile to their face!

She also just added a line supporting our police and first responders. This is such a great way to thank your local fire, medical, and law enforcement departments for all the hard work they do to keep our communities safe and well and a portion of all proceeds going to the Officer Down Memorial Page and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation!

Head on over to the Teeny Weenie shop to check out all the paper lovelies.
And be sure to follow along on instagram too!

Hi friends and happy Friday!! I stumbled across this beautiful nursery the other day and had to share it with you! The very talented Natalie Hurst designed the space for her niece and I was beyond happy/excited/honored to see one of my designs (the floral tapestry) in such a pretty space! And how fun is that floral garland... and the dresser knobs?!! I just love details like that!

This nursery is part of the Oilo Studio Design Challenge. Head on over to their site to see more photos, product sources and vote for Natalie!!! :) -- UPDATE: Natalie won the challenge! Congrats girl!! --

Disclaimer: I had no idea one of my products was being used in this challenge and will not receive compensation if Natalie wins. I'm just happy to spread the word about her work and I'm very proud to see my design in this beautiful nursery.

Life According To My iPhone

 life lately | creative index blog
As you may have noticed (or maybe not!), I've fallen off the blogging bandwagon again. Kind of on purpose and kind of not.... life hasn't been super busy, just a little different. Brandon has a new work schedule that we're trying to get used to and I'm trying (very slowly) to re-brand this blog and my shop... so I just haven't felt like blogging here. But I wanted to pop in and say hello... and share some photos that didn't make it to instagram... ;)

Random Thoughts....

.... that are more like complaints! haha

+ Has the the weather been really crappy where you live too? Because it really sucks here. In the four years living here, this has been the coldest, rainiest, gloomiest Spring... and it's really bumming me out! We've had one "real" beach day (hence the pretty photo above) and it's even to chilly/rainy to keep the windows open very long. I love when the cool breeze comes through the windows because soon we're gonna be stuck with the A/C running 24/7......

+ I'm tired of doing the dishes! Not just tired of it... I really HATE it! We don't have a dishwasher, so I wash every single dish and after 4 years, I'm SO over it. You don't really realize how many dishes you use throughout the day... and that's why I don't bake as much as I'd like. I don't want any extra dishes! And getting Brandon to help is like pulling teeth - plus I usually just have to re-wash them anyways. So gross!

Strawberry Picking

Last week we ventured up to Virginia and went Strawberry picking! It's one of my favorite things to do in the Spring. There is just something about those sweet berries straight off the vine! Brandon was off and it wasn't raining (finally!) so we hit up our favorite little farm in Chesapeake, Brookedale, and picked away.....
