Mother’s Day Bouquet Color Palette

Happy Mother’s Day to all my Mama friends!

This is definitely one of my favorite days of the year.  I hope you all enjoy pampering the Moms in your lives, and/or if you’re a Mom then make sure you do some self-pampering.  You’ve earned it!  

ALSO – For my Subscribers I’ve made a couple of special printable Mother’s Day Cards and Envelopes ‘Fun Freebies’ for you just in time for the big day (sneak peek below).  Enjoy!  BTW – If you aren’t a subscriber yet just click on the “subscribe” button and you’ll be all set!

Merry Christmas Color Palettes!

 

Whoohooo!

It’s Christmas time and I am SO looking forward to some relaxing fun with friends and family! It’s been quite a year on many levels but right now I just want to focus on joy, peace, and love and the spirit of giving this Holiday Season.  One fun new thing I got to experience this year was the opportunity to be a Christmas Tree designer for the local Boys and Girls Club charity event – “The Festival of Trees”.  For two weekends in the month of November I tinseled, bedazzled, and adorned four fabulous trees that were eventually auctioned off to the highest bidders to benefit our local Boys and Girls Club. The other designers and I had glitter coated in our hair and skin for a good three weeks afterwards (glitter is sticky stuff!), but it was worth the sparkling residue, especially seeing the finished trees on display. The colors were amazing so I decided there was no better way to finish 2016’s color palette series then with color inspiration from the four trees I designed! Enjoy!

 

“All You Need Is Love”  – (my Peace inspired tree)

“Woodland Rapsody”  – (this one is 100% inspired for my sister)

“Black Tie Affair”  – (my black & white tree – and side note, it won a 1st prize ribbon!)

“Mele Kalikimaka” Palm  – (inspired for my Hawaii Ohana)

OH, and one more thing…

some Christmas caroling fun carpool karaoke style as only James Corden can do!  Wishing you a Very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, lots of Peace, Joy, Love, Wellness, & Fabulous Fun in 2017!

Autumn Color Palettes

autumn-purples-color-palette

Happy Fall everyone! The two color palettes above are from photos taken at my sister’s house where she has the most amazing contrast of autumn leaves dripping above these vibrant purple garden flowers. Oh the beauty of nature!  

I’m so happy it’s finally autumn! SoCal isn’t getting the cool Fall weather that we’d all love to have, but it is starting to turn a little and the edge of summer seems to be subsiding – a little. Let’s just hope we get rain soon. Needless to say my house is decorated for Trick or Treaters, pumpkins bought, and my favorite Halloween coffee mugs are out and ready to be used in the morning. I’m also excited to be headed to another yoga retreat, my last for 2016, and I just had to share with you the newest addition to my Halloween decor that my sister just gave me! I’m thinking this little yogi will be going straight to my desk after the holiday is over.   He’s WAY too awesome to pack away! yoga-skeleton

I’m getting as many ornaments made before the rush of the Season and I’m super excited to add to my offerings these cuties!

Scaredy Cats (back by popular demand) 

Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) Calacas

&

I Love Barre (or as I lovingly call them “Barre Babes”)

As always – these are all one of a kind and handmade by me and when they’re gone they’re gone. If you see one you like pick it up fast.

* Also, BIG NEWS! *

Because many of you have inquired about personalizing in-shoppe ornaments (ornaments listed in the shoppe and not created under the custom ornament option).  I have been in a quandary over how to do that since not all of my in-shoppe ornaments have space on the front or back for adding a name and date/year.  To solve this I have added two options this year that I hope will help any of you interested in personalizing an ornament you see in the shoppe.

1- Personalize your Packaging add – on for $5.00:

This option allows you to request a personal greeting (i.e. “Happy Birthday ___”, “Merry Christmas ___”, etc…),  Rename your ornament to a name of your choosing,  and/or Create a personalized “To” & “From” note.  This personalization will be on the insert card in the packaging and will make your gift even more special.  This option is good for ALL of my in-shoppe ornaments and is especially great for those that can not be personalized on the actual ornament.

2- Personalize your Ornament add – on for $8.00:

This option allows you to personalize those ornaments I’ve noted as having space either on the front or the back for painted on personalization of a Name and Date/Year. If an ornament is eligible for this add-on option you will see a note on the title as well as in the photo role. 

Keep checking into the Shoppe for more ornaments and grab them quick!  :0)
