Family Picture Time!

 We had a little session with a new photographer yesterday and of course my Maxwell was a totally pill! UGH! It must be the age, 2 is not a good age for pictures. I mean seriously he was running around the park like an absolute MADMAN! I am surprised she got ANY good ones! Our theme was a vintage picnic, and I was going for the nautical look (my obsession) I just think blues and reds look so good in pictures! I dont normally wear red, so of course I had to buy a new outfit! DUH! So here are the 3 that she shared with me so far. I love them!

HAVE FUN!

  So! Tell us a little about you and your crafti-ness!
~My name is Danielle, and I have had my Etsy store Paper Fairy for almost 4 years-June 23rd is my etsyversary! Somehow after years of being involved in in live theatre I found myself with a job in the corporate world. Paper Fairy has become my artistic outlet.
I started creating greeting cards after my wedding, where I designed every paper product associated with the event, You name it, I have probably made it!
My favorite things to make, which are actually my best sellers, are custom pieces. Besides my own, I have created invitations for four weddings (hear that brides to be?????) Just recently I started designing labels for my friends candle line. There is something about being able to take the idea that someone has in their mind and create it on or with paper that I love! Plus, I am starting to mix my graphic work with my scrapbooking techniques, and I am loving how they are turning out!
So ready to see whats up for grabs!?!?
Here you go!!!!
How stinkin cute are these??? Love them!

Which pair!

So I am in dire need of a new pair of cowboy boots and I am obsessed with lane boots! BUT a pair start at 350.00!!! Yikes! So I went to their site and actually found two super Adorbs pairs that are actually on clearance! And I must get them before I meet my future husband Luke Bryan! I am going to his concert and I have seats in 2nd row!! Holy snikes I might pass out! Anyways whatcha thank!?! (that's my ghetto voice!) right or left!

AND they turned out cuter than I ever expected!!!! So here are some pics! Thy will be getting listed in my etsy shop this week!!! Have a fabulous Saturday night!!!!!

Helloooo Friday! So glad you have graced us with your presence once again! So if you follow me on instagram then you know that I like to post my "casual" Friday outfit! It's so fun to be able to go to work in something other than my ninja outfit! (black scrubs and black shirt with my name in bling) don't get me wrong it's super comfy! But I like to get prettied up! Blah blah anyways! Enough rambling! I am snuggled up in my cozy bed on this cold rainy Friday night! Have a good weekend! Shout!!
