This year is flying by so fast!  I can't believe I'm wrapping up for my final show until this fall.  I'll be at the East Union Presbyterian Church tomorrow- this will be my third time attending this lovely event! I'll have a whole bunch of new summery fun items - and just in time for Mother's Day.  Stop by, say hi and have a great time at this spectacular show!  Details & Direction can be found on the Events page.    xo Ashley

Stepping into Spring

It has been gorgeous here the last two days, and we've been taking advantage of it!  It has spurred a creative spark in me and I can't wait to get Eva's Easter flowers done.  In the mean-time, I've been busy with formal flowers, a special wedding order and custom muslin bags.  Its been so much fun!  And, to spread the fun, I'm offering a spring special.  xo, Ashley

Just a Little Love

It's hard to believe that I am preparing for Valentine's Day, but here it is, the middle of January and Eva's Valentine's are completed.  February is a very special month for us!
The weather has been so nice the past few days I have the bug to spring clean and pull out the summer clothes- okay, I'm getting ahead of myself here, but a girl can dream...
Anyways - here are the fun little Valentine's Eva and I created over the weekend together:

Finished pillow boxes, un-adorned pillow boxes and embellishments can be found in the shop- and don't hesitate to contact me with any questions!  

Happy Monday!

Today I was put back into perspective that no matter how stress-full, how busy or how run-down I am- my family and friends mean everything to me.  I can't thank them enough for the amazing support they've shown me the last few weeks throughout the absolute mayhem of the craft shows!

We're gearing up for the holidays, the anticipation is mounting, and oddly enough I feel as if I can finally take a deep breath and get ready to tackle the onslaught.  I've never cooked a turkey before, so baby, this should be interesting!  I am extremely excited for after we have digested the feast we cram down our throats, to pack away all the photos and decor and pull out the garland, the reindeer and the lights!  Then up goes the tree.  I will be in full swing of the Christmas spirit, the music blaring, the kids running around willy nilly- and then comes the ornaments.  I can't wait.  I've even snuck in a few new holiday themed items in the shop to help tame down the overwhelming urge to start decorating early.

Starting Thursday, I will having a Black Friday Sale in the shop.  I'll be posting details on the Facebook Page later on this week.  And don't forget to add your teachers, co-workers and stocking stuffers to your list, like I have a horrible tendency to do!

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Holiday!  Happy Thanksgiving!

This weekend at the Poff Elementary Parents’ Association Holiday Vendor and Craft Festival I had the pleasure to meet some amazing people- customers and vendors alike!  It was an amazing turn out and it was so heart warming to hear everyone speaking so highly of shopping locally and with small businesses for this holiday season!

On top of that, if you know me- I eat my pizza cold, drink WAY too much Coca-Cola and LOVE cupcakes!  Today, I was stationed next to my weakness, and let me tell you they were the most amazing cupcakes I have ever eaten in my life!  

For my entire pregnancy with my son, all I wanted to eat was cupcakes.  I refrained (for the most part), but it wasn't uncommon to see me drooling over them or sneaking a bite here and there!  Two years later and the cravings are still there!  So, here it is, the food that has captured my heart:

Saucy Cakes Homemade Cupcakes!  The one pictured above is the Almond Honey. My personal favorite?  Caramel Apple!  For a full list of available flavors and colors visit her site: Saucy Cakes Cupcakes. Bridal Showers?  Birthday Parties?  Baby Showers? PERFECT!

And I am off to eat another :)

Weddings and Custom Items

The past few weeks have been so exciting for me as I have had the pleasure to work on some amazing custom wedding orders!  Just a sneak peek to what I've been up to:

Done in my favorite colors- the same as my own almost eight years ago- time flies!

Bridesmaids' Accessories

Custom Money Bags

 Wedding Favors

Wedding Favors with Personalized Tags

And of course all items (and others in the shop) can be custom personalized to coordinate with your wedding colors, additional quantities available, and I'd be happy to mail out material swatches - you can find the details here!

I hope you have a wonderful week and enjoy the gorgeous fall weather!

Party Down!

Things have been pretty fast-paced around here, don't even know where June went- and I hope everyone had a safe and fun Fourth!   

I'm taking these two short weeks before I start getting prepared for Eva's First Day of School to organize, scrapbook and get caught up on my every growing pile of hair-brained ideas.  I can't believe that she's reached the age to be going to school, I'm super excited yet sad at the same time.  Where did the time go?!    Which turns my thoughts to having some serious scheming to do for Eva's birthday- and it is looking like it will be quite interesting at this point.  I'll be breaking out the eye-protection and power tools shortly- look out!  (Pics to follow... maybe :) )

New(er) in shop: Pillow Boxes!  I have so much fun making these little buggers and now they are also available to order as Party Favors or just the box itself- as well as specialty gift wrap.  They are just so fun!

Keeping It Weird, Austin

Getting back into the groove of things from spending a couple days in Austin, it was awesome to see friends, relax (which led to an interesting sunburn), and have some really good food!

I fell in love with this scarf (my weakness is scarves) and since we didn't have time to do any 'real' shopping, it was my only indulgence on the trip- once I got back I was kind of disappointed I didn't have anything on-hand to pull out some of the amazing colors- which led me to create the newest addition in the shop!

Feeling refreshed and my hands are itching to get back at it!

Hope everyone has enjoyed their weekend, enjoyed the awesome weather, and isn't slathering themselves with aloe like yours truly!

April Showers- Have May Flowers?

March seemed to fly by! Hoping April stays around a little longer, but it doesn't look like it will :)

I had a great time at the shows last month- it was great seeing everyone who came out!

Mother's Day is coming quick, and you know what I love most about my flowers?  1st- I'm not allergic to them and 2nd- they won't die on me due to my lack of a green thumb :)

I've been working on a few new things, which seem to be taking FOREVER to finish- hopefully they'll sneak onto Etsy soon- definitely for the shows coming up!

I'll try and get the details up next week- in the mean time, I hope everyone had a nice visit from the Easter Bunny and has a wonderful weekend ahead of you!!

Is it seriously Friday!?  Where did the week go!
Wrapping up for my final two shows of the month-  Both are benefiting some great causes!

Anything's PASTAble in Sarver on Sunday the 25th
Craft & Vendor Show in Penn Hills on Saturday the 31st

New spring items (to be gracing Etsy here soon) and due to the popular demand I've been working on some American Doll  (and other 18" equivalent dolls) Headbands.

By the way- you can also order thru Etsy with your credit card without a PayPal account.  I had some people ask at the last show, and just check out my policies for more info- really simple!

Back to the grind, hope everyone has an awesome week and gets to take advantage of the gorgeous weather!

February is by far one of my favorite months.  Excited for all of the birthdays and events coming up!  And Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow so we're looking at six more weeks of winter!  I hope we get some more snow, because it was a blast watching Eva play in it.  
Finished up the challenge I set for myself, and can't wait to take the rest of the pics.  I had so much fun creating them!

Happy Monday, Productive Tuesday!

Hoping everyone had a wonderful Monday!  Usually I struggle to get going from the weekend, but I had a great time yesterday cleaning things up with packaging, organizing and boxing things up.  It was very refreshing and felt good to sit at my work table today and allow the creativity to flow without hindrance.  I'm so excited over the animal inspired projects I'm working on that I am compelled to get one completed every day this week.

Wrapping up 2011: A Little Gift Giving

I've been meaning to start up the blog for a while now, but I've been in overdrive for the mass amounts of shows I've been doing these past few weeks.  As Christmas approaches, I've decided that I need to take a break and focus on some much needed family time over the weekends before plays, parties and traveling commences.
So, as I finished up my last show of 2011 this weekend, which I had a blast at! I'd like to kick-off the newly opened and much neglected Etsy store by offering a special for the remainder of the month! 

And with the cheerful holiday spirit resounding through the house, all orders over $20.00 will receive a free gift!  
Happy Holidays!
