Sorry it has been SO long since I have posted. Things have been a little hectic around here. We were on vacation in Bethany Beach for a week :) We had a great time! The weather was perfect~ the trip was just too short.

After we got back, it was time to think about Back-to-School shopping. Madison started 2nd grade and Paige will be going to Preschool. It is sad to see them go, but it is a nice break that I think all of us need :)

I also have been busy making lots of changes to my store!! I'm so excited. I have decided to start a line of standard silhouettes. My customers do like the custom silhouettes, but I thought maybe some standard ones to choose from would be good too. Many of the silhouettes are made from pictures of my girls when they were little. The one that says "Collin" was a picture of Madi's 1st steps. The one that says "Taylor Grace" is Paige. All of the silhouettes are have meaning and are very special to me. I also have just started selling some of my note cards with colored envelopes. I have been wanting to do this for a while, but could not find the right company. I finally found a company that has the Euro flap, lots of colors to choose from, quick shipping(usually next day and it's FREE), and the prices are affordable. The company is called Envelopper Inc. I decided to get a few colors to start and see how it goes. With the new products and colored envelopes, I have been taking all new product pictures. All of this has been very time consuming, but I think well worth it :)

Also, Christmas is right around the corner! I have been busy coming up with Christmas cards, gift tags, and prints. Here is a sneak peek of 2 of my FAVORITE designs :) I think I will have more designing time in the next few months. I love to take a blank page and just create.

I will probably send out the snow family as my Christmas card this year. I will need to change the children to 2 girls, and it will be perfect!
