so many ideas. so little time.

i have so many ideas and so little time! the past two weeks i've spent three days and two nights working in houston for my other job. it has been a crazy time trying to fill orders in the evenings, design on the weekends, and take care of everything i have to take care of at my other job.

i am sooooooo incredibly (incredibly!) grateful for the orders coming in from all over the place. i have so many fantastic ideas swirling around my brain, but there truly just aren't enough hours in the day, if i plan to eat and sleep, i mean. =)

i promise new inspiration will come your way soon!! and a big THANK YOU for keeping me inspired!

treasury list: feels like easter is drawing near.

notably noted was featured on another treasury list this week! i get so excited -- it's completely flattering to think that of all the items available on etsy, someone would choose something designed by little ol' me. i am so grateful to my followers and clients.

the item terry from moonlight55 selected is one of my favorite note cards. they were originally designed to match the nursery of a sweet little girl named eloise -- the patterns created closely mimicked her crib bedding, while the yellow polka dots and white font mimicked a framed "e" wall hanging -- but i think they're fun for girls of all ages.

thursday inspiration.

happy march! i was so busy yesterday i failed to even acknowledge february 29th! so sad to think i missed that opportunity. not that it's a big deal, by any means. i just hate being reminded that we sometimes rush too quickly through life. these past two weeks have definitely been a blur for me.

i promised you a bit of inspiration, so i thought i would share this image {i know, i know - not the clearest pic} from better homes and gardens. i have been obsessed with these oversized ballons since i received the march 2012 issue earlier in february. i really wanted to have them at my mom's spring time birthday, but i procrastinated {and kind of forgot} to order them.

balloons were so popular when i was a child. now i rarely see balloon bouquets. sometimes it just seems like balloons have become incredibly cheesy and done in poor taste. i love, love, love these balloons, though. between you and me? i hope balloons continue to make a come-back. when done well, they're so cheerful and bring a smile to your face.

if you haven't already, check out the "you say it's your ..." article for fun party inspiration on page 24 of the better homes and gardens, march 2012 issue. i think you'll love some of the details as much as i do!

"fluffy cake, champagne toasts, giddy snapshots, and a personalized soundtrack. what's not to love about a go-all-out celebration?"
