Handwritten Recipe Cutting Boards - Add a Photo

My customers are at it again! They're geniuses, I tell ya! I've recently had two requests to add photos to my Handwritten Recipe Cutting Boards. The handwriting alone makes them extra special, but adding a photo takes them over the top great.
 These cutting boards have done exceptionally well since I introduced them and I love the idea of adding a photo. Last night I added the option to my shop so others can add a photo as well.

Have you had an awesome custom request lately?

Monday, April 14, 2014


Last Monday I celebrated my 31st birthday. While I wasn't all that excited about it, I did end up having a great day. A great week, actually. I got lots of calls, texts and greeting cards from family and friends.

Jesse got me a new TV for my studio (no, still not finished). And even got it installed last week as well. Now I just have to figure out how to use's a Smart TV...and it's smarter than I :)

And I went out to dinner with a friend that night to celebrate. We had yummy Mexican and I even got free friend ice cream since it was my birthday :)

I also had lunch with a friend on Thursday for my birthday as well. And she baked me the most delicious pie! Raspberry cream cheese with chocolate frosting...YUM!

 Thank you to everyone who wished me a happy birthday here or on other social media :)

Friday Features - Robin's Egg Blue

In true Spring fashion here in Iowa, the temperature was 82 on Wednesday...and they're calling for a chance of snow Sunday night. But the robins in the yard remind me that Spring is here to stay! Enjoy these beautiful robin egg blue finds for today :)

Polar Plunge for Baby Landon

This past Sunday, I decided it was a nice day to take a swim...well, sort of! Jesse and I, along with Jesse's older brother, his wife and their son and his younger brother and his girlfriend all took the Plunge for Baby Landon.

Landon is a 5 month old baby boy with a rare form of cancer. The plunge is all about raising money for him and his family. You can read the whole story HERE and start your own challenge if you like. This was such a wonderful activity to be a part of!

Friday Features - Birthday Wishlist

Monday marks the big 3-1 for me! I'm not sure if it's the weather (gray and rainy right now) or the fact that last year was a milestone birthday, but this year I'm just not too excited about my birthday. So to cheer me up, I did some virtual shopping in my Etsy Favorites. Browsing Etsy always makes things more cheerful :) Enjoy!

Clockwise from top left:
This mug pretty much sums up my daily routine :)
 I would LOVE this in pink and black!
One can never have too many beautiful rings!
 And these earrings are just dreamy

Are any of these in your favorites?
