Saying Goodbye to a Good Friend

Today has been pretty rough. We had to euthanize our sweet, family dog who we've had for 8 years. She had been suffering from cancer, and started going down hill pretty quick in just the last couple of months. She was a really great animal. She would always start barking (almost like getting onto you) if she thought anyone was playing too rough or being too loud, lol, and if you were ever sick, you better believe she was right there laying next to you until you got better. She was definitely a little trouble maker as well. She loved stealing food off the bar, or the table, or even off your plate if you weren't looking, but when she got caught, she would just look at you with those big puppy dog eyes like she knew she did wrong, but she also knew she was cute enough to get out of trouble, lol. My favorite thing was when she would walk around faking a limp just so you'd pet her or pay attention to her. She was a pretty sly dog, lol, and she will be missed greatly. Love you Sophie!!

Beautiful Words

I got a request a while back from a family member to make some camo letters for a nursery. They turned out beautifully, and ever since, decorating letters has become one of my favorite past times.

I've always enjoyed taking stuff that looks so plain and boring, and turning it into something you could stare at for hours, and this is definitely that type of project, and decorating with these is just as fun as making them! My apartment looks like a dictionary with all of the words I have hanging up, and sitting out. It's great =). These are just some of my creations.

    noun /fāTH/ 
    faiths, plural
    1.  Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
    2.  Strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.  

    verb /biˈlēv/
    believed, past participle; believed, past tense; believes, 3rd person singular present; believing, present participle
1.  Accept (something) as true; feel sure of the truth of: "the superintendent believedLancaster's story".
2.  Accept the statement of (someone) as true. 

    verb /ləv/
    loved, past participle; loved, past tense; loves, 3rd person singular present; loving, present participle
1.  Like very much; find pleasure in
noun /ləv/ 
loves, plural
1.  An intense feeling of deep affection

If your interested in custom letters for yourself or someone you know, contact me on etsy (, or email me at

"Home...Where our Story Begins"

My hubby and I have been looking at houses on and off since we got married 3 years ago, but could never find the right one that just felt like 'home'. Well guys, I'm excited to say, we finally found it! We bought our wonderful first home towards the end of last month, and the closing day is in place for July 29th! I could not be more excited =D. So as I say goodbye to apartment life, and hello to home ownership, I am giving 20% off all purchases made between now and my closing date with discount code MOVINGDAY . I hope everyone else's July is just as blessed as my own. Have an awesome day. =)

"Cinderella...proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life."

Couldn't agree more with this quote! Having a gorgeous pair of shoes means more confidence for you, and of course, beautiful feet! I am always looking for a cute new pair of shoes. My problem is, though, that I get an idea of what I want in my head before going shopping for that special pair, and of course, I never find exactly what I want. This is why I started decorating my own. All of my shoes are hand painted with glitter paint designed specifically for shoes, that won't peel, crack, or shed, and then a handmade bow, or flower is sewn on to finish them off. The great thing about these is that all the colors can be changed, and customized to make a unique pair of shoes that you wont see anywhere else! This means showing off the unique individual that you are, and lots of compliments! These are great for weddings, parties, or simply just to pamper yourself (we all know you deserve it)! What girl hasn't dreamed of designing her own pair of shoes??
To create your own pair of shoes, contact me at, or send me a message in my shop at, and I will work with you to design your dream shoes.
