so very thankful

I'm so thankful for many things this year, so many actually. But to share a few I am thankful for this corner of our home. Although it's not the biggest house, the cleanest, the most pristine or highly decorated, this little space makes me so happy. like nothing else. it's not because of the "stuff", more about how happy this place makes me in our home.  work, play, fun i love it all. its here. 

and this month it was featured on the front cover of STUDIOS magazine. sharing this little place is another thing I'm thankful for. Reminds me to count my blessings and be thankful for right now. This small little space. its here. and years ago it was just a dream. 

this month we were also featured in Country Living Magazine and the small paper tags that we sell in Inspire Lovely were featured on the front cover :) There is also a page that features a pretty green twine we sell in the shop as well. They did such a beautiful job shooting the cover, i'm wanting a mini cubby space just like that now! how gorgeous! Makes me want to package all day long :)  

I'm thankful for health, even though i've been a bit under the weather lately i'm getting better each day. I'm thankful that i have a healthy & happy little r, and mr.handsome. Beyond any of the wishes I could have ever wished i am so thankful that my family is better than i could have ever imagined. we're far from perfect, a bit crazy and too silly but i wouldn't change it. 

thank you kindly for being patient, coming back and reading along now and again. i'm wishing you a 
happy thanksgiving. xoxo

t'was market eve

Happy November my dear friends!  Since we are here in san diego and the leaves don't quite change the same as other parts of the world I wanted to make a few goodies for fall.  Fabric, felt and paper leaves = fall happiness. :)

I even made a new fall collection with rich browns, soft feathers and pretty papers.  Perfect for collectors :)  I am so smitten for the little wee pine cone and vintage mushroom! xo

I made this little gathering using the fall leaf embellishment pack (now in the shop! ). Look at the cute little horse!!! oh man, makes my heart so happy with these little guys :) The embellishment pack comes with Velvet, Fabric, felt, paper leaves (pictured above)  + mini pine cone + heart, mini starburst, horse & leaves paper punches = a handful of happiness.  

 I love the neutral colors. I'm loving the simple. the easy and quick projects. I'm sure your world is also spinning a mile a minute and it's nice to finish something super quick right?! I finished these in mere minutes. Not gonna fret over placement or anything, just here, it's done. whoo hoo :)

And my amazing friend Katie made this beautiful GOLD shimmery twine. GOLD. umm Katie, you are awesome and so is this twine. be still my heart!

I had to make a quick pom pom garland and its so pretty and simple I love the way the shimmery gold specks catch the light just right.  So soft and perfect. All these little bits are now available in the shop :), just finishing up a fun market and i wanted to invite you to come :)

I'm getting my holiday shopping done here as I made a promise to support handmade for my gift giving. it's a blessing to be a part of something like this and can't wait to support these ladies and their amazing work. 

I hope you are warm and bundled up
cozy feet
happy smile
sweet wishes,

ps: i miss you ;)
