baby shower decor

Isn’t that baby shower cake just the cutest? And those paper airplanes and stars? They’re just small details from my baby shower that took place a month ago and I’m in love still.

So, as you’ve noticed, it’s been really slow on the blog of late as I prep for the arrival of our very first babe in just two weeks and I guess now is a good time as any to say that I am officially going on maternity leave! I will take a break from blogging in order to adjust to all the newness and embrace the life of motherhood. Since blogging is a very time-consuming thing, I’m not exactly sure when I will start up again, but I hope sometime in early summer or late spring. The Shop will stay open a while longer, but will be closed for just a wee bit as we get closer to the due date and for a bit afterwards. Once the Shop hits vacation mode, you will be able to sign up for an email notification via Etsy when it is back and running.

And just to share a few snaps from our maternity love shoot to make this blog post even sweeter:

UPDATE: the Shop is now back up and running! Stop by!

Our little one is finally here! Welcome, Henry James! Born 04.14.14 (on his due date, of course) at 11:43 in the morning; 7.4 lbs and 21″ long with a head full of long dark hair. We are beyond ecstatic. We are throughly enjoying how he has transformed our lives and are wondering how in the world life existed before him. Oh my heart.

It’s been a while since I’ve done one of my gift wrapping idea posts. Once again, it’s not one of my own ideas, but I just had to share a concept that’s pretty much my life right now. With all the frenzy going on as we are just 3.5 weeks away from our baby’s due date, daily things have been getting simplified left and right in order to make room for all the baby things that still need to get done. Wrapping up gifts is certainly on that list. So if you find yourself short on time, an easy way to wrap up a gift really nice is to just add a fun tag. Keep the wrapping paper simple — keep the bow simple — but go crazy with the tag by making it a bold color, using a fun material like fabric or wood, adding a handmade touch by hand-lettering something, or use your favorite stamp. The possibilities are endless and the result is always perfect.

Finding great pieces to hang on your wall can be difficult, yet so easy if you know where to look. Love the idea of having these two hang on my studio wall someday — side by side. Having the perfect prints can make any room, well, perfect — but for my creative space, it is especially important to have ones that inspire me to keep going and brew creativity endlessly.
