CUTENESS | Snickety Snacks

Friday, June 27

I'm just dying over these adorable photos sent to me by Brittanie from Snickety Snacks….taken by Love Knot Photo.

I worked with Brittanie recently to come up with some cute signage to help promote the pretty sweets she and her mom bake up for weddings and other celebrations. I love the brilliant idea of theirs to use the posters I came up with underneath their gorgeous confections - instead of as a backdrop...even though it's still technically a backdrop. LOVE!

The mother-daughter team work together baking up amazing treats for special occasions…but they have also recently started offering a variety of dessert buffets too as part of their services.

If this photo shoot is any indication of the work they do…I'd say they are well on their way to superstardom! *wink*

The chalkboard background really makes everything pop off the page! Don't you agree?
And that adorable "Love is Sweet" tag I designed is pretty darn cute too!

Keep up with Snickety Snacks in a number of ways:
BlogWebsite, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest!

Sure wish Snickety Snacks lived near me - I have a feeling we'd be doing a lot of collaborations together!

BEHIND THE SCENES | Patriotic Projects + Hand Lettering

Friday, June 20

Thought I'd send you off in to the weekend with a sneak of what I'm working on for next week…
I rekindled my love for hand-lettering again when I did the Rooted In Love Collection Poster and when I created the super cute FREE Kitchen Art Print awhile back but then... 

Life has just been busy.
So, I picked up my pencils and pens again for a fun project for the 4th of July.
Watch for something special to post on Monday!

LIFE | Sunshine + Summertime

Thursday, June 12

It's flat out Summertime….and I'm so enjoying lots of sunshine and this gorgeous girl.
I just love her little heart of gold and her quirky but confident sense of style.
She had no problem the other day pulling on her winter boots to wear with her Summer dress as we cheerfully headed out the back door to

GOOD THiNGS | Peach Peeling Made Easy

Friday, June 6

I finally understand all of the hype.
I listened for years as the "older folks" discussed the beauty of it all…the joy it brought them.
But I just didn't get it.
They could seriously talk passionately on the subject for hours…days even.
The magic of it all just escaped me.
My lack of understanding would not allow me to wrap my brain around it let alone embrace the miracle of it.

Until now…

CRAFT | Make Pretty Things :: Heidi Swapp

Thursday, June 5

Remember me mentioning my desire to dive back into scrapbooking? To rekindle that love affair for it when I was a design team member for an online scrapbooking site. To revisit the passion I shared with so many others...back when attending scrapbooking conferences was cool and I met this superstar.

Scrapbooking conferences and retreats have been replaced with blogging-focused events over the last five or so years as a direct result of scrapbooking having taken a backseat to creative pursuits. I've watched so many of my favorite scrapbooking stores close down over the years and have sadly watched the scrapbooking aisles in my favorites craft stores shrink from 3 to 4 full aisles down to only one - maybe two.  

But change is coming friends!  I'm seeing a clear shift and it's been

HAPPY | Chalkboard Popcorn Bar :: Barn Wedding

You have no idea how happy this makes my heart!!
I worked with a customer to create a custom "He Popped the Question" sign for the popcorn bar she was setting up for a wedding - a sign to coordinate with the Chalkboard Popcorn Bar Collection I designed.  She just sent me pictures of how everything turned out and

This gorgeous bouquet of orange and white roses represents another milestone for our family.
These were presented to Clara Louisette, my oldest daughter, on Friday night following her graduation from MDHS.
