Spring has sprung....and I'm behind!

Happy Saturday friends! I have been so behind with all of the fun things that I want to share with you- fabulous illustrators, yummy recipes...

It's been really busy at our house with my birthday and my husband's falling in the same week. That, along with juggling work and a bit of a spring flu and blog posts.

Be sure to check out the giveaways going on at Whatever, and Love Notes by Lauryn

 It's beautiful weather here, and I wanted to share a lovely print by Katie Daisy at The Wheatfield. I couldn't agree more with this quote....

Be looking for posts featuring fun things soon! Enjoy your weekend.

Fabulous Illustrations- White Space

As I was putting together this post, I noticed that I was gravitating to images with nice white space. Such great breathing room for the focal point of the piece, don't you think? These illustrations are absolutely amazing. I want them all. Such fabulous talent and creativity!

It's a great day for a BIRTHDAY!!!

Yes, today I turn 30! 
I used to think that number sounded so old, and now I just laugh remembering that thought. I loved my 20's- it was the best of times, it was the worst of times- many wonderful, life changing things happened, and there were some not so great experiences that I am grateful for now because they made me a stronger, better person. So here's to the next 10 years- I can't wait to see what is ahead, and I am so very thankful for the wonderful family and friends that I am blessed to have in my life. 

My wonderful husband (hands down the highlight of my 20's) surprised me with a party this weekend- I had no idea- and I am really hard to surprise! I felt so loved. I feel like I've already had the best birthday yet and I haven't even lived the actual day. Thanks again to Brett and all of my lovely friends and family that made me feel so special. I wish for each of you to feel special and loved today and every day! The best is yet to come!

Inspiration: Creative Commercials

Usually I would tell you that I can't stand commercials- I LOVE DVR- one of the best inventions ever...BUT this past weekend as I was cleaning, etc. the TV was on and I was DELIGHTED by these. You may have already seen them- like I said I'm probably behind because of DVR- but if you haven't I hope you love them, too!

Just try to watch these without breaking into a huge smile- I don't think it's possible! Such creativity :)

Creative sweets

I love to bake, and I love to decorate- but combining the two is very difficult for me. I always have visions of grandeur thinking I can create beautifully decorated cookies and cakes, but it is SO hard to get frosting to look perfectly smooth, and my lack of patience usually gets the best of me. I will leave it to the pros. Here are some amazing creations........

I love a good quote. They pick me up when I'm feeling down, remind me of fun times, and help me reflect and think about things differently. A beautifully designed quote is even better. Here are some lovelies........

Lamps and lampshades also play a part in my decor fantasies. Here are some of my current favs.....
(I am always finding items at Land of Nod and PB Teen that I think would work in more 'grown up' spaces- especially in my future studio....)
