Congrats to Lauren McKinsey 
on the grand opening of their new shop

Lauren McKinsey's adorable signature blue goose now has a shop of it's own. How cute is that! Some of the famous designs available on their printable shop are now also available on gift items at  Let me show you some of the things you'll see at the shop and read below for instructions on how to celebrate with us, our friends at Lauren McKinsey and other bloggers joining in the celebration and how to enter the giveaway for your chance to win one of 3 great prizes!

"each notepad was lovingly designed by ME and then made in our home. YES, for now, we are making our own notepads.  so, every notepad you order was designed by us, made my us, wrapped by us and sent to you with lots of love! we have a fun variety of sizes and quantities of notepads.  four out of our seven notepads come in packs of two with an adorable pencil picked out my me to match your pad.  the notepads are beautifully packaged in a clear cello bag, wrapped with pretty twine and have a matching gift tag attached.  they make the perfect gifts and we have even done all the presentation for you.  three of our notepads are single pads.  you will find the description for each notepad on the website, but each tear off notepad is filled with high quality paper and backed in thick recycled chipboard making the notepads extra sturdy.  several of our notepads come with a magnetic strip so that you can hang them on the refrigerator or other magnetic surfaces." ~ Lauren

Magnolias and Bees Inspiration

I'm letting you in on a little secret I'm working on...

I bought a fabric from Jo-Ann Fabric that inspired me for an entire display of sweets. I'm making my flowers be Magnolias and working with bees keeping away from the traditional yellow because that's one of the things I enjoy doing the most.  I'll have the pleasure of working as a contributor for Polka Dot Balloon Magazine so you'll have to wait and check out the Summer issue for more! 

Looking forward to working with these vendors and friends: Pamela Smerker Designs

note: although the fabric links to Jo-Ann for credit, the photo is my own take and I could not find the fabric online. I purchased it at one of their stores.

Natural and Moss Easter Party

I had the pleasure of styling a table for Knoxville Moms Blog Easter Party at our local Little Gym of Farragut and I decided to give the table a natural look and allow the goodies to bring in the classic pastel Easter colors.

KJ Cookies was so nice to bring in some great cookie designs that I had design and I love that "springing" cookie because it just symbolizes all the new flowers, the new feelings, the new weather that we have all been waiting for with the new season. And Sweet Whimsy Shop made delicious vanilla and chocolate sprinkled cakepops. So excited the kids loved everything!

The pastel color cookies are the new pinata cookies offered by KJ Cookies, what a cute surprise for the kids to open one of these!

Special thanks to Knoxville Moms Blog for allowing us to style a little something for their moms and kids. It was a pleasure working together on this party!

Happy Easter 2014!

Wishing you a happy and blessed Easter and a beautiful day!
