New in the shop -- cross stitch magnets

Several people have asked me to turn my cross stitch rose card into a magnet, so I made it happen! I love how they add just a touch of vintage to my fridge. They'd made a great gift for the friend who loves to cross-stitch or your mama. I also realized that my letterpress map coaster designs would look great as magnets, too, so those are coming to the shop soon! You can find the cross stitch magnets in my shop here + the cards here

Wedding logos

I am so excited to now offer custom wedding logos in my shop! When James and I tied the knot 5 years ago (!), wedding logos weren't as popular as they are today. Now it seems like everyone wants one, so I thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. 

I'm offering custom illustrations and designs as high-res digital files so couples can put their unique logo on everything from save-the-dates to their welcome bags. Brides can make their logo into rubber stamps, print it on their programs, or use it on their wedding website. The possibilities are endless!

Here are some examples of my illustrated logos -- your first home together, your reception venue, church, a directional compass for world travelers, a famous city landmark, etc.! I was thinking about what James and I would've chosen as our logo 5 years ago for our big day. Maybe two birds and a feather, or two green tomatoes (southern + my fave fried vegetable?!) ha! Really, I'm so excited to work with couples on these and I look forward to seeing how they use them. You can see my monogram/initial listing in the shop here and the illustrated logo listing here. What would your wedding logo be? -- Natty

It's been awhile

This is by far the longest I've ever gone without blogging. Blame it on the fact that I have a 5 month old (when did that happen?!), I'm sleep deprived, I'm trying to keep up a business, oh, and I'm sleep deprived. I started this post over a month ago when Archie turned 4 months old, and I never finished it! Life is busy...but in a really good way. 

So just like that, Archie is 5 months old -- actually, almost 6 months old! I look at him all the time and wonder at the skills and milestones he's learning and passing every day. Time is flying fast, and at the same time, it's standing still. That makes absolutely no sense at all, but my fellow mamas probably get what I'm talking about. It's amazing how long some days feel and how on other nights, I flop onto the couch, Archie asleep in his crib upstairs, and I think, what happened today?! It's a roller coaster ride, but one I never want to get off of. I love this munchkin!

These days Archie is sitting up (almost), teething like a madman (two bottom teeth popped in last week, and now one on the top is coming in, too!), and he's starting to giggle -- but we have to work for those giggles. Meaning, James and I look absolutely ridiculous trying to get a laugh out of him. Ha! Good times.

Last Sunday was Archie's baptism, and we -- almost -- had the whole family attend on both sides. It was the sweetest day. This little boy is loved so much! Wait for the song in the video below -- the whole family was a teary mess. 

Sweet Archie! 

I do still to check in here from time-to-time, but you know, micro blogging over at Instagram is all the rage these days. I tend to post a lot more about what I'm doing over there these days, if you want to come say hi

Until next time, blogland! -- Natty
