MORE New Items on ETSY!

I'm having a productive week! I haven't touched a piece of furniture, but I have a stack of projects ready for next week.

Here's a sneak peak at two new items I just added to my ETSY site:) The first is a set of Alphabet Flashcards designed in the same vintage style as my other flashcard products.

Next is a banner I designed for Valentine's Day. I love it and plan to make lots more! I'm thinking "family", "home" and "ooh la la" for starters!

Have a happy day!

New on Etsy: French Flashcards and Valentines

I've been back in the studio playing with paper! My first project was creating a set of vintage-style French flashcards using illustrations in on of my 19th century French primers. I love the look! See more pics on my Etsy site:)

The next two projects are for Valentine's Day:)

"Je t'aime" Flashcard Greeting Cards:

Key to My Heart (careful who you give these to!).

Have a happy day!

Before I Move On: Best of 2011

As I do every year, I've spent the past couple of weeks in planning mode. Where do I want to be by the end of 2012? What do I want to accomplish this year? How do I hope to grow as a Christian, mom and business woman?

But before I officially say good-bye to the past year and leap forward into 2012, I want to share a few of my favorite posts from the past year. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

What a year! 2011 was filled with blessings and struggles, big changes, and many happy moments. I look forward to what God has in store for the year ahead!

Happy New Year!
