Sticky Sticky

After taking a little break from creating after finishing the alphabet series I'm back. . . With Stickers! This has been something I've wanted to do for a while now, but seemed to keep getting put on the back burner. I've already listed a bunch of Sticker Packs in the shop, but I do have more to list yet, so check back! Here are two pictures of just a few of the stickers available:

My animal alphabet series is finished!!! I can't believe how fast I actually completed this series. I really enjoyed making them, and I absolutely love how they turned out! Each one is available individually in my shop, or you can purchase a bundle package of every letter for a discount.  What a great way to start the weekend! :)

I am Lucky!

How lucky am I to have won a giveaway!!? I hopped over to Stephanie Fizer's blog the other day and saw that she was having a giveaway. I usually do not win anything like that but I thought the little pendants were so cute that I'd put a comment down and see if maybe I'd win. Well I did! (1 of 3 winners) My raccoon pendant arrived today and I thought I'd show off a picture of it! It's sooo cute. Check out her shop for the matching print. I also included a picture of the 2moo cards of hers that I now have. I have moo mini cards myself, and I think they are such a cool option to the regular business card. What a wonderful package to receive in the mail 1 day before my birthday! :) Thanks Stephanie!

Good Thing I Love Her

Well I was hoping to get lots and lots accomplished today (including a decent post here). I did manage to get four more alphabet prints up, which you can find here. Aside from that however I barely managed to do anything else. Here is the reason why:

That is fluff from a pillow on our sofa. And yes it is attached to her face. Apparently she's trying to tell me that we need to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather, rather than to stay inside and get any work done! (I think her brother agrees)
So much for doing what I wanted! We're headed to the park for some sunshine!

Happy Girl(s)

I just returned home after a weekend at my family's for my birthday. I pretty much knew what I was receiving for my birthday (new mirror from crate and barrel, handmade ceramic plates, $$ for our new house). I had a sneaking suspicion I was also going to get a new growth necklace from artmind's lovely shop, and of course I was right!

I am now the proud owner of the olive AND dark turquoise necklaces! Lucky Me!!! On top of that Mitsy (creative mind behind artmind) also sent me a necklace for my birthday from her! She is just about the coolest/nicest person I've met on Etsy :)

Pardon the yarn in the photo. Since we are moving I've packed up the lightbox, and I had to improvise to take a picture of the necklace. She made it in green, which is my favorite color. I've already told her a million times, but thanks Mitsy! Your necklace was the highlight (and biggest surprise) of my birthday!
Besides my awesome felt necklace collection, we had the most delicious lemon raspberry cake:

We played some mini golf, hit up the driving range (not the highlight of the trip for me), and went for a long walk in the woods to play in the waterfalls. The puppies had a lot of fun too, and today is definitely a recovering day from all the fun and festivities.

Even though my birthday is not until the 14th, my birthday weekend with the family was a lot of fun! I didn't even mind the rain that came on and off through out the 5days that we were up there. All in all my (early) 24th birthday has been a ton of fun!

I'm as happy as all these girls :)

How About a Giveaway!

So for all of you who do not know next week is my Birthday (yay!) I have been thinking for a while now that it would be fun to have a giveaway, and I figured the week before my birthday sounded like a great time to try it out! So here's the deal: Leave a comment on here from now until August 13th. The morning of August 14th (that would be my birthday) I'll pick one winner at random, using random.org. The Winner will receive one of whatever they want from my etsy shop, be it one print, or one set of cards. . . you get the idea. All I ask is that you leave me a way to contact you in the comments, as well as what you'd like if you are picked! Good Luck!

Moving is Difficult

I wish I had some better updates, but unfortunately my life has become completely about moving! We have less than two months to pack up and head a few miles across town, but I feel like I'm moving to a new country! My once neat and orderly work area has become a mixture of boxes and bubble wrap, though our puppy Piper has found that bubble wrap is better than any toy we've ever bought for her (much to our dismay). Luckily I am still getting closer and closer to completing the alphabet series. A mere 7 more animals left until completion! On that note, I just have to add that a really nice woman named April recently purchased 4 letters for her son's room that made up his name. For whatever reason it never occured to me that you could spell out things with the letters! (Let's just blame this on lack of sleep, and temporary insanity due to moving) I have to say, it's pretty darn cute!:

My fingers are crossed that all my letters look this cute next to one another! Hopefully next month I will be able to post some pictures of our new place (post one or two minor renovations). I think the best thing of all is that we're still going to be nice and close to Valley Forge Park. I don't think it will ever be possible to get tired of the view(s) from the park.
