NURSERY ART PRINTS

Can I just say it's been crazy over here. People often over use the word crazy so let's just define it for those of you still with us- I got a new day job, for reals I already have 3 jobs so what's one more. We got featured on Jessica Alba's company Blog (read about it here) and that made business go wild, so I had a few sleepless weeks. I had an influx of online interior design clients (you can see all about that here). And to top it off I was designing the new nursery collection for Style Me Green (you are about to read about that in this post). So it has been busy, and that's just how I like it! I might even go as far as to say #blessed. Queue Liz Lemon eye roll now.


So here's what you really came here for. The nursery collection launched on Monday and I couldn't be happier to have it almost complete. Over the course of about 2 weeks we found out that 8 close friends were pregnant, and then a few more joined the club a month later. I wanted to create gifts for the parents-to-be, and art is really the marriage of my two loves, interior and graphic design, so a collection of prints made the most sense. I was inspired by stars, the moon, and dreaming. You can view the entire collection in our shop here. 




PRINTABLE VALENTINES



Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! I can almost smell the sugar cookies now. This year I am trying to keep it simple, remember my New Year’s resolution of staying organized? Well, I got my valentine act together weeks ago, which is a pretty big deal for me- but you benefit too! I stocked the shop with the cheesiest, and most fun Valentines out there, but I'm pretty biased- just see for yourself! Perfect for school classmates, teachers, co-workers, you name it there is a bit of something for everyone. You can get them all here in the shop.


We are slowly expanding the shop with some greeting cards as well. I’m adding 1 or 2 designs every month and January’s cards were all about love. They are printed on 100% recycled cardstock and each card comes with a recycled brown kraft envelope. They are blank on the inside so you can customize your message however you'd like.


FREE PRINTABLE VALENTINE 2014

I have been working away on the 2014 valentine collection, and I rolled out our Valentine Printable cards so late last year that I figured I had to get a jump on it this year. I will be putting up the other fun cards I designed up in the shop later this weekend, but for now here is a fun, modern FREE printable valentine. I love the simplicity of these cards because you can write a simple note, tape on a piece of candy with some patterned washi tape, or attach a small clear bag filled with cinnamon hearts!

2014 FREE PRINTABLE CALENDAR

I'm excited to ring in the new year! I usually don't party anymore, but I plan like it's 1999. I love organizing, making color-coated calendars, meal plans, you name it, I plan the hell out of that crap. I saw so many great printable mini-calendars this winter but I couldn't find any 11x17 singe-page designs. I don't give up easily, and the lack of designs inspired me to create my own 2014 calendar- one that you could download and print at home FOR FREE! I hope you all have a great year!

UPDATE: I added a few colors after getting about 30 emails requesting some other hues, and I was happy to oblige. For other colors click these links, yellow, violetblue, sage.



HOLIDAY CARDS AND CARAMEL SAUCE

Last week was a bit of a Christmas prep blur. But I wanted to share our Holiday cards and neighbor/co-worker gifts with you this year. We always do our little gifts in a jar- this year it was caramel. And this recipe was not only easy but super fast to make, so if you are scrambling for something to make, look no further.




Ingredients:
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup dark karo syrup
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp vanilla

Directions:
melt butter, sugar, and syrup, bring to boil. Boil for 4 minutes without stirring, then remove from heat.
Stir in 1 can sweetened condensed milk and the vanilla. Let cool for a bit before pouring into jars.

Makes enough to fill 4 half pint jars

After many requests here it is folks our 2013 Christmas year in review card.
