On Thurdsay, Sara from Photos from the Harty, came over for a fun filled afternoon of coffee drinkin’, snack eatin’, and craft makin’. We did a lot of talking and laughing, but ultimately she helped me create these fun potpourri filled ornaments to hang on our tree.

After Halloween, I had a friend inquire as to wether I was making holiday cards this year or not. I’ve basically been chugging peppermint lattes since trying to get some finished asap. Much design success! The first holiday card designs have recently been posted in Capital Society’s Etsy shop.
I finally photographed this amazing stationery set we created for Caity and Alex, complete with custom wood box. That’s right. Instead of an envelope they shipped their invitations in a custom slide top box with their wedding logo burned onto the cover. These invitations are out of control.
I came across these rings on Instagram one day and I thought they were so gorgeous. Maybe it’s because I love pretty handmade jewelry, or maybe it’s because QVC is my background noise channel and they talk about druzy all day long. Regardless, these rings got my attention so I asked Vanessa of Three Stone Birds to share a little bit about her process and inspiration. This is what she had to say:
A few weeks ago, Toni Hogan from Coastal Design and Creations, approached us to create a new logo for her. She designs beautiful beachy jewelry and accessories using leather, pearls, and precious stones. Every piece is unique so I just had to have one of my own. I’m always losing my keys so I decided to ask her for a keychain worth keeping track of. Using one of her signature combinations (pretty stone + tassel) she sent me these beauties. The stones are polished and vibrant but maintain their beautiful organic edge. She even included a bonus solid perfume bar that smells like a cool summer night at the shore.
