Hello loves! I am so excited and happy to announce we are having another baby in the beginning of October! I’m sorry I have been so non-existent lately but to be honest I have not been feeling good at all. Any spare time I have I’m either napping or trying not to puke🙂 Now that I’m almost 15 weeks I’m starting to feel better so hopefully I will be back more often!
Here is a 11.5 week ultrasound photo of our new little baby that we are so excited to meet.
I have been slowly decorating my house since we moved in. The walls around the table have felt very plain so we hung up some shelves that I can decorate. It will be so fun to decorate them according to the season, right now they have some Christmas decor on it but that will be changing VERY quickly!
The brackets we used where these from Ikea and are only $2.00. For the wood I went to home depot and got a 2×10 board and I stained it with the same stain I used for our table.
One of my friends has a beautiful etsy shop full of her handwritten work. She makes everything personalized including invitations, wall prints, and stamps. She created a name address stamp for me that I adore! These stamps make perfect christmas presents, birthday presents and house warming presents. Here is what Tara has to say about Lit Lettering :
I love type! I always have, I remember as a small child getting a personalized letterhead and envelope set and thinking it was the greatest gift -ever!. As for the info about Lit Lettering, really I am a full-time mom that loves type so much that as soon as my littles are asleep – I am with ink. I do various mediums like modern calligraphy, brush script and digital type (transferring work to computer). In my etsy shop you will see items like custom address stamps, business logos, invitations and wall quotes. Although I am always up for a creating something custom and special, you want custom wedding invites or a designed mailbox with your last name, calligraphy christmas balls, really you name it . As for the wall quotes, these are 100% done by hand – so when people received them they are ink on cardstock that I did a couple of days ago.
All my work starts on paper, and that is really the part I love so much. Doodles turn into ideas and font characters can change. If you want something created using type, I am your girl.
