Paint The Stars Photography || Valentines Day Shoot

We all have that friend that when you get together, a “quick” visit does not exist. When you add hot coffee, french toast sticks and lots of raw real life talk filled with struggles and accomplishments, a simple play date turns into half your day- literally. That is the case with my sweet friend Amanda who is the talented woman behind Paint The Stars Photography. She has the vision and skill of a true artist with her dreamy, vibrant and whimsical fine art portraits. Every time is say “oooh this photo is my favorite, you’ve out done yourself”, she turns around and blows me away with her next shoot!

How to sew a skirt in 20 minutes!!!

I am very excited to share with you one of my favorite nap time creations!!! Having two little girls who are very girly, skirts that are twirl worthy are important in our house. This was one of my first clothing projects and from here I’ve been able to create more detailed outfits. I am obsessed with matching skirts and dresses for my girls! If your ready to get crafty, grab some coffee or wine, beautiful fabric and lets get sewing!!!


Nursery Tour

My youngest daughter’s nursery was so much fun to put together. While this was done just about 3 years ago, this room is fit for a princess! When I had my first daughter almost 6 years ago, that popular site called Pinterest, was just making it’s popular entrance. Now, it’s my go to “search engine” for ideas, projects, and to get my creative juices flowing! Now that I’ve finally established a blog, seems only right to post it!

For this nursery, I knew that I wanted a simple, yet glamorous feel that could grow into a toddler room. My vision were pearls, crystals, gray and satin baby pink.

A Royal Birthday Party

I’ve been blessed to have two girls, not only born in the same month but a day apart! Everyone’s first comment is always “oh wow, how did you plan that!?”, just years of struggling with infertility- but we will save that post for another day! So, as you can assume this makes birthday planning for this Pinterest-Party-Perfection momma a tad more interesting.  For my oldest daughters 4th birthday and youngest daughters 1st birthday, I wanted them to have separate parties. A first birthday is special, not a spotlight to have to share with your sister. After back to back weekends full of parties, I vowed the next party to be joint! The following year to celebrate their 5th and 2nd, I couldn’t think of anything better than a Royal theme for my two Princesses! Clearly we LOVE Disney!
