Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet.  I am so blessed that you have taken the time to read this blog.  It’s my belief that a home should reflect the people that live there and this is our story.

When we purchased our home in 2000, one of the things we loved most about it was that it felt like a blank canvas.  The house had been vacant for some time and the seller had gone through and painted everything “builder white”.  The place was outfitted with basic fixtures and was just waiting for someone to come in and breathe life into it.  We were eager to put our fingerprints all over it and make it our own we have.

Although it continues to be a work in progress, it’s our favorite place on earth.  Welcome!

    I found your site via Pinterest. I love your graduation invitation you have posted there. However when I was routed to your site, I like the baby announcment even better. Where did you get, or how did you emboss the “BABY” portion of that announcment. I would like to use the same format for a graduation invitation but cannot find anything to help me emboss like those letters. Any information you can give me, how you did it, where you had it done,or even a place I can buy the tool if you made them would be GREATLY appreciated. Love your creativity and will be back for sure! Thanks

      Hi Faith… Thanks so much for your sweet comment! I wish I could be of more help, but I ordered those baby announcements through a catalog (pre-websites!) 19 years ago. They are so classic and I still love the embossed lettering too. They would be absolutely gorgeous for a grad announcement! Unfortunately, I’ve been searching around and I’m turning up empty handed. Something similar has to be out there, but I’m currently at a loss. Best of luck!

Thanks for reading. Please leave a comment... I'd love to hear from you!
