thanks michelle! you know, jillibean soup has several die-cut backgrounds very similar to this die cut, just in different shapes. I think they are called "placemats." They'd give you a similar look without using a die cutting machine, if you want to check them out!

Next to white, the most prevalent color in my closet is gray, and I've been reaching for it a lot lately. Specifically, to pair with other neutrals. It's not really like me to be drawn to a lack of color,... Continue reading

I didn't get to attend CHA in Anaheim this year, but I was glued to social media most of last weekend looking for sneaks of all the fun products. I'm excited for lots of the new releases, but these are... Continue reading

My well-planned blog schedule took a little detour this week as I've been fighting off a nasty winter bug. A few days of power naps, fluids, and repeating the mantra I.Will.Not.Get.Sick seems to have done the trick, so I'm trying... Continue reading

I was not a very good photographer for the Christmas festivities this year, and the fact that I took less than 75 photos of the whole celebration will attest to that. I'll attribute this to the fact that (1) I... Continue reading

One might assume from my previous post admitting my tendencies to binge-watch Bravo TV series, that when I refer to blanket, I'm talking about the home decor item used when napping on the couch wearing flannel pajamas and my husband's... Continue reading
