Change of Scenery

We are in the process of buying a new house, it's consuming my life!!  Anyways, I have been searching Pinterest high and low of room ideas.  Here's a few of the things I love and MUST use in some way.

Love this door, we have the perfect place in our master for this to work. Now I just need my trusty dad to make it for me!
I think this picture ledge is really cool!  I also love how the wall color goes up about 3/4 of the way with 1 color and then changes to another color. 

See my next picture...I'm thinking white textured wallpaper on bottom 3/4 of the wall, then gray and a yellow ceiling.

Stepped off the face of the Earth

So....I did it again and stepped off the face of the earth and ignored my blog for another week!  We sold our duplex and have been looking for a new house and it has been consuming my life!  It's very exciting and we are very happy.....but I am a worrier.  I worry about the duplex appraising and the inspection, etc.  Hopefully, it will all go off without a hitch!

I have been working on a new invitation set for an Etsy customer, Danae.  She liked one of my invites and wanted to expand on it a little.  Here's what I came up with for her.

Basket Weaving

My mom asked me to take a basket weaving class with her this past Saturday at Powell Gardens.  I thought it would be a cool new craft to learn, so I said heck yes!  The class was full of old women and 1 guy who was going to use his basket for knitting needles....need I say more.  It was a hoot!
Here's my basket progress and finished product!

Vintage turned Modern

I was recently hired by a co-worker to make her save the date postcards.  She loved the vintage postcard idea and was really inspired by this Kansas City card.

She asked for me to use this idea, but make it more modern and fresh, here's what I came up with and she was elated!

Cutomized Wedding Gift

I know I have been terrible about blogging lately!  Things have been crazy busy at work and CCO, my Etsy store has taken off this wedding season! I have had a lot of invitation orders and it's been AWESOME!!

I have also been working on my collage art a lot lately and trying to come up with fun new concepts....I'm going to have a show at a local gallery this summer sometime!!  We are still working out the details and of course, I need time to make more great art...but I'll let you know once I have all the details ironed out.

This is one of my newest creations, a personlized piece that would be great for a wedding or anniversary gift!  I also sell these at CCO, my esty store.
