I wish I could be a better blogger, but sadly, I'm not.  I don't have wonderful lessons to end each day or recaps of the all highlights--I'm a hit-or-miss kind of girl.  At the same time, I want my blog, my business, and my life to reflect who I really am.  I worry about silly things way too much.  I want to learn and grow and be a good friend and wife (in about 11 months :).  I love Jesus and need him every moment of every day.  I stalk read this little blog just about every day, and I loved tonight's post.

Missing in Action

Please excuse my absence.  
This is where I've been.

planning a wedding

teaching some kiddos (don't worry--this is not my classroom)

calling the hogs (woo pig sooie)
and running a little home studio...

I'm gearing up for a little Christmas open house at the NWA Boutique Show on November 19-20.  
I'll be back soon with a little 12 days of Christmas countdown to whet your appetite.
Stay tuned.

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

Now, I know it's only October, and fall has just begun, but I've got Christmas on the brain.  I absolutely love fall--don't get me wrong, it's my favorite.  However, this ole gal has had "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" stuck in her head since February.  Certain people (possibly my sweet fiancĂ©e, ahem...) think that Christmas music is best left to make its debut after Thanksgiving.  A girl's gotta celebrate somehow.

Enter the latest Christmas orders.  
sweet gift stickers for my sister's family

These beauties were waiting on my front porch this afternoon.  What better way to kick the season off in style???  Especially with "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" playing softly in the background.

these stickers are pretty cute too.

Nothing can show him up though.

small stickers - $35 for 100
large stickers - $35 for 60

They also come in round and rectangle.
Imagine the possibilities...

As Seen In...

Sloane's Birthday Party Loot

pint-sized plates perfect for the birthday girl

I want some of these for myself...
Visit her sweet momma Erika's blog to see them in action!

{In other news}
  • I am loving every minute with my sweet 3rd graders!  They are so funny!  I wish it wasn't illegal to post their picture on here.  You would just want to eat them up!
  • Wedding planning is at a bit of a standstill at the moment.  Still waiting on that much-anticipated football schedule to be released.  Don't you know that we have our priorities straight--wouldn't want to double book on a game day.  It's so fun to dream and plan in the meantime though.
  • While Will has knocked out asking his groomsmen to be a part of our special day, the big questions still remain  to be asked for me.  I'm majorly lacking in the creativity department these days. 
  • But I did get a few special ones to join in the excitement!
Cupcakes for the job at hand

Approval all around

Don't worry--even the boys said yes.

{That's all my brain can dump out right now.  Stay tuned for more.}
