Chaos. A glittery confetti of chaos. That's how I can best describe the studio as of late. If i end the day with glitter on me + on little r & on mr.handsome then it was a good day :)
We are closing the shop! Packing our lives into boxes and moving! People. it's real. it's also very real that we will have to move out of our current place and into nothing. oh escrow. why don't you ever go better than anyone expects? surprise me in a good way will ya?! lol!
So i guess it's a mandatory "time off" from the shop. That means we will be closing the shop this friday. Your chance to save 20% off by using coupon code "FallXOXO" at checkout will also end this Friday!
But hooray ! I listed all these pretty new lovelies in the shop for you!
All cloth bags now come in 3 sizes, small + medium + large and in both silver & gold. XOXO
- New Advent Calendar Number Tags 1-25 and a star tag -
And the tags are perfect for easy decorating XOXOsequin bows :)
I have been loving these cuties for a long time now. It must be because i don't have a little girl or something but i swear i will top everything of with a bow this year :)
So excited about all these new products. I'm exhausted but very happy with the new found energy that playing with new product brings. It's so fun! Still working on more ideas + playing with new product. With a little time away from the shop I do hope to have more creative energy to bring some ideas into real life. So i'm crossing my fingers for the big studio & life move. Come what may, I'm happy to not be doing this alone, it's much less scary :) In the next couple of days i will take some final pictures of our studio set up as i know i will never have this creative space again. I have to hold back from missing it already. but i know that wherever we go, starting again is going to be okay too :)
happy thoughts lovelies,

Let's start with the good stuff: September was awesome. Celebrated all month long as it was my birthday month. I loved it. lots of cake and sprinkles. Lots of family time.
And then just for fun we put our home up for sale. Jk. It wasn't for fun. We really did put our home up for sale. I really did keep it clean for 2 weeks straight and I seriously doubt I could've made it 3 while people came to see it. But it was a great month. I can't wait to show you more pictures I took of our place. It's simple but it's home. And then, just as I was enjoying the fact that we actually sold our home... then reality started sinking in and the idea of moving has me feeling a bit less excited. More like just not excited at all. Because you know, moving isn't fun. But we ARE excited about finally buying a home that doesn't have a shared wall. And that does have a garage & a big back yard. I've already started missing this place and we haven't even moved! I'm such a sap. It didn't look like this when we first moved in and I guess looking back at all the work we put into this place & making it ours I feel like I will miss that part of us here. Luckily, our next home is a fixer upper so yay to putting our magic touch on that home too. It's going to be good. really really good :)
So in 100 degree weather I got ready for this fall photo shoot and bought myself some more flowers & pumpkins and totally ate all the candy corn I darned pleased. Because life goes on and now we're onto fall, even if san diego doesn't believe in it with this hot weather. lol!
I'm loving fall anyway XOXO.
New vintage card & fall inspired cards in 2 paper color choice options.
And I'm still in love with mason jars. So we made Kraft mason jar sticker labels. Perfect for labeling handmade gifts + treat bags & leaving cute random notes XO.
I also love these mason jar tags. I love labeling stuff. Everything. Just because. I should show you my tag drawer. Its pretty crazy in a good way :)
Kraft tags are super cute. I think these would be fun to use as place card holders for weddings and sending handmade love to friends & family. I think mason jars are forever XO.
You know i love clothespins. I thought they'd be even cooler with phrases! You know the pencils with engraved phrases. Well i rarely use a pencil or give one away so i thought the same idea with the phrases would look awesome on clothespins! I LOVE these! I've been using them on packaging recently and think it's super fun adding a cute phrase to each gift :)
And I've been loving these half tone mini wooden clothespins as well. Everything is cuter in mini format am I right? Each clothespin measures 1 inch. Adorable!
Last year was our first year debuting our mini calendars. I'm so pleased to share our 2015 calendars!
We've included 5 font options with 3 paper color choices. I love customizing stuff & love the gift of choice. So that's what these beauties are all about. Use them in your paper projects, for gift giving or to decorate and hang in your office & home. 2015 is going to be so lovely with these beauties.
A bit of handmade goodness for you. I've been making these doily garlands whenever I get the chance and I am so happy to share this one with you guys. I think this is the best way to upcycle thrifted doilies. I love that you can use these over and over again to decorate. Perfect for decorating a wedding table and a sweet corner of your home. I only made this one for this shop update so hurry quick before it's gone!
And the same goes for this little black garland. Perfect for minimal decorating. And works perfect for everyday decor. I always have a garland up somewhere in our home ;)
And our black & white design paper tags are now available in kraft ! :)
You can buy one of nine designs or one of each design.
We've recently started offering wholesale options on these too.
Happy Fall & shopping! ps: I really wish i could share my bowl of candy corn & candy pumpkins because sometimes i only want to eat one and then i feel pressured to finish the 100 i have left lol! No self control, shame hehee.
