Make Today Lovely

I've had this paper kit on my mind for the past couple of months. I kept going back to the colors. the patterns. i worked on it, painted + designed + cut etc when i found the time. and then i was ready. i was about to take photos with Mona and the battery flashed. and what's even better? i couldn't find my camera charger. after almost 9 years i finally lost the battery charger. hhahahahaaa!

thanks me. i'm great at losing stuff. I'm actually surprised i hadn't lost it before. so hi 5 for that. ;)
I often recruit the mr. to help me find what i'm looking for. (poor guy) so yay! he found another battery charger online and he's totally earned the title, the best MR. hahaa :)

so back to the kit...

i have photos now to share and i'm so happy to actually be able to show it to you too. that always helps. hehee. 

currently still loving black + bold patterns + gold + handmade

i'm always trying to add different elements to my project life pages and these all seemed fun and new. So far i'm working on 3 pages right now using this kit. it's good! 

it sure feels good to have stuff to document. mostly the pictures i take on my phone. not the best quality but i'll take it. all of my pages include small photos anyway and i'm not blowing anything up so you cant see any distortion so i'm a happy girl.

here's to happy days + every day goodness + xoxo + good times. we all have a few of those to share :)

so far my pages are about mother's day, a day at the beach and a few photos with my little r. so silly and so ordinary but thats us. i love looking at his reaction so far as he's watching the pages come together. he says" hey mama! that's me! rafael!" hahaa! makes me feel SO good to be back again playing with paper. it was the right time. so good. :)

My Favorite Pinwheels

Calling all my party people! I've just stocked the shop with my favorite pinwheels!  

I've long been asked to sell these beauties at every market we've sold at. I love using these for decorating our backdrop :) The more the merrier I say, lol! Can you guess that Mr.Handsome is the one that decorates our backdrop at each show? He's got an eye for detail and he pretty much rocks it every time. I'm totally partial though hahaa! 

They are so easy to put up, very lightweight and you can reuse them over and over again ! 

Now available in 4 colors and 2 sizes via Inspire Lovely etsy  XOXO

Oh these beauties will surely brighten up your little corner of the world. I just know it!

Okay, off to take more photos + do some project life pages + and find my camera charger lol!

happy Monday lovelies!

Spring showers

Last month I was packaging the spring paper kits and wanted to add a bit of fresh pretty color to the boxes I was shipping the kits in. I had just finished spring cleaning one drawer set in the studio and found a HUGE pile of rub ons that I never had used or opened. Remember when rub ons were the it thing? lol! So I decided to try to incorporate the rub ons with a a pile of fabric swatches that i had been saving. Its so hard to toss pretty things! 

But i'm glad that I didn't. Because I made rain drops & pretty colorful clouds from the fabric swatches :) I tossed in a fun group of sequins from my little collection and a bit of colorful seam ribbon and ta dah! 

my favorite part was picking out the stamps to add to each card.

even though i never make "cards"... I don't know why i find them intimidating, but i certainly loved making these few.

and my love for rub ons is coming back :)

i hope these cheered up the lovelies whom received them. This took about a show ( while I was watching the telly) and a half. I tried not to over think anything. You know, put a bit of glue and stick something to it and go. super carefree :)

and just so you won't ever forget, {you are loved}
i love the bright bold colors of the notecards. Man, they totally have upped the note taking/ study card game. Thank goodness they didn't have these bright babies when i was in college. girrrrrl you know i'd be all stamping and gluing stuff to my notes lol! I'm like, "what studying?!" 

Sigh, always nice to do things just for fun. And share just for fun stuff too :)
Hope this brings you a bit of cheer. Happy friday lovelies!!!
