20 Dec

I came across the blog post from FleetCollection today where I sent in the photo above. I really love their dresses. They are affordable, comfortable, and super easy to coordinate with. I searched for bridesmaid dresses for a long time and honestly just wasn’t feeling anything. All the dresses I found were too formal and expensive. I wanted something that my friends could wear again. When I came across the FleetCollection store on Etsy, I knew I found my dresses. They are truly beautiful. And comfortable, oh my! I tried the red one on and seriously thought about keeping it for myself. They also coordinated well with each other and with the two dresses not from there (the two blues on the right). 

If you’re looking for something all in the same color swatch, many of their dresses come in different styles but with the same color. So you could rock a whole mustard party. I just had to mix it up. 


Lemon Sugar Scrub

14 Dec

I love easy, cute gift stuffers. I came across this recipe for Lemon Sugar Scrub and decided to give it a try. The recipe below filled five small mason jars and the labels are available here.

Lemon Sugar Scrub
– 2 1/2 cups of Organic Cane Sugar (I also tried coconut sugar which turned everything to a brown)
– 1 cup of oil (I used 1/2 cup of coconut and 1/2 cup of olive)
– Juice from half a lemon (I also added some drops of Young Living lemon essential oil)
– 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Mix it all up and add to labeled jars. Try some string or ribbon around it and you’re good to go.


Some Christmas Press

5 Dec


I was thrilled to received my Minted Holiday Catalog in the mail recently to discover that my print “Naturally Framed” had been used as part of the beautiful design for the cover. Huge honor to be included and a reminder to never give up. I’ve been rejected many times for minted contests but recently I added my second piece to the mix with this New Year’s Card.

The print included above can be found on Minted’s site here.

Over in the shop we are offering a 25% off with the code NOEL12 through Friday. Great opportunity to pick up some fun stocking stuffers for Christmas. And on our Society 6 site we have a promo going for free shipping and $5 off each product!
