What little girl doesn't love cupcakes. . . . let alone one with pink frosting swirled even taller than the cupcake part itself?

Canvas Wraps

I have a new love . . . Canvas Wraps! They are so wonderful! I was so excited to get this one last week. It is quite large, 20 x17 and makes me smile every time I see it. I purchased it as a sample to show customers, what a good reason for me!

You should get one, I know you'll love it as much as I love ours. If you'd like to see it in person, stop on by.

i {heart} faces . . . texture

TEXTURE! I LOVE texture! I really do . . . there are so many possibilities with it and it can be so fun to layer them on top of one another. Then, just moving the layers around changes everything as well. I'm still learning a lot about them, and having so much fun in the process.

Anyway, here is my entry for this week's theme at i {heart} faces.

Go to i {heart} faces to see more great faces and textures.

Have a blessed week!

Blog Award

I got this lovely award from Catherine at Halsey Happenings
You should check out her blog, she would for sure be on my list if she wasn't the one who sent it to me, can I do that? Not sure, let's just say that she is! :) The rules for this blog award are as follows:
1. To accept the award, you must post it on your blog with the name of the person who has granted you the award, and a link to their blog.
2. Pass the award on to other blogs that you recently discovered, and think are great! (Mine are not necessarily recently discovered, but I love them).

3. Contact the bloggers to let them know they have been chosen for this award.
So here are the blogs I have recently found that I wanted to give the award to....In no particular order. . . .

With Catherine, that is 8! 8 Great blogs! Thank you, ladies!

Yay for me! I got some to "toys" . . . some textures! They are a lot of fun. I got them from Florablella. For those of you who do not know, textures add a little bit of, well, you guessed it, texture to your photo. They also add depth and can aid in emphasizing the mood of a picture. I was only able to "play" around with them a little bit, but I love them. Here are a few different takes on the same picture.


I think this one is called "white linen"

another (forgot the name, sorry)


pure milk

milk and honey


Oh, and I'd love to hear which one might be your favorite . . . even if it is the original :)

i {heart} faces . . . best face forward

It's birthday time over at i {heart} faces! Happy 1st Birthday! This week's theme is "best face forward" and has to be a picture taken with the month of January 2010 or December 1009. Here is one of the precious little faces in our house. I took this today, January 10th, 2010, while she was playing with her "ponies". Her big brown eyes just melt my heart and her sweet smile is icing on the cake!

Have a blessed week!

To see more gorgeous faces, head on over to i heart faces!

New Year, New Blog, New Business Cards!

I designed new business cards to go with my new "look". I am happy with them; they are printed on a pearlized card stock and I just couldn't be happier . . . for now ; )
If you would like one, just let me know!
Of course, I'm always happy when you pass them out as well!
Blessings, and try to stay warm out there!
