Lucky Monkey

I collaborated with my mom on a baby shower gift for our friends that are having a sweet baby boy soon.  My mom makes these really cute baby blankets with different animals on them, we had her make a monkey for this gift.  Once she was done, I created a custom monkey print to go along with the blanket.  I think it turned out really cute and I think we may start selling them as a set!

Doggie Love

Here's a couple of my custom collage creations I've been making lately.  I made these as gifts for my sister and brother in law....they LOVED them!
Here's Lola, she's a sweet chocolate Lab.

And this is Westly, their new puppy:

Oh Boy!

I'm getting excited to host a couples baby shower for some friends of ours, the McGinn's.  I just finished up the invitations today and I think they are super cute!  I'm going to have a loose mustache theme, since they are having a little man.
Here's my invite:

And I'm going to make some tissue paper poms to hang from the chandelier in our dining room:

I will have some cool straws with a little flag attached, reading "It's a Boy!"  I'm also going to make some chocolate mustache lollipops like the ones below!  

I'm obviously pretty excited....I'll post lots of pictures when I have everything done!

Happy New Year! Happy New Room!

Happy 2012 to Everyone!!  My husband and I spent our first New Years Eve at home this year since we have been together, it was really nice to not have to worry about making any big plans.  We invited my sister and her family to stay over and all the kids had a fun time together, it was great.

Now as promised, here are some pictures of our new curtains are up, new pillows fluffed,  barn door hanging and new ombre painting complete!  I'm in love with the room and just so pleased with how it turned out.  Here's some pictures:
