| update soon |

finally, new products coming to the shop!
these are just a few peeks into the update. i've been saying for such a long time that i want to offer calligraphy services as well as product incorporating it, so i'm really excited to finally add that as something completely original to a fabulous fete!

new colors. new patterns. all to welcome spring and summer wedding and parties.
someone might even get a little party stash when the actual update happens... check back soon!

[ st. lucia recap ]

i'm finally back! we had an amazing (and relaxing) time, but now it's time to snap back into reality.. quickly! sometimes i wonder if a vaca is worth it because it's almost more work to catch up when you're back:) well, okay.. i only think that for a second before i remember how leaving and sitting on a beach with a drink in my hand is the best way to spend a day. period. here are a few of my favorite shots, and a little announcement at the end!

that top pic. one of the most quaint and GORGEOUS bays i've ever seen. palm trees set among the lush rainforest. massive estates in the hills and colorful cottages below.
we took a boat ride there, to marigot bay, and i really just wanted to jump off and stay. the preferred form of transportation from one side of the bay to the other? a quick ferry ride... love. i like places where cars aren't necessary:) now that's a vacation (from traffic if anything)

and how could i go a week without a craft project?

this island was coral central. so one day i recruited ryan to help find as many letters as we could in the sand.




and the best part of our trip?

he proposed!

don't worry. i won't overload you with wedding dresses or anything... i plan on making as much as i can for our big day, so it'll definitely stay crafty over here:)

[time for a vaca]

wondering why it's been a little quiet over here? well, mostly trying to get life squared away in general before leaving on vacation... you know, finishing up projects, packing up orders, doing 10 loads of laundry, etc.. I got all of that finished up about 10 minutes before we hopped on our plane. literaly, i was finishing up a fun easter project in the airport! more on that later.
so i still won't be posting regular things like crafts and parties, but i do want to share snapshots of our trip with you. hopefully at least one a day, depending on how motivated i am to break out the laptop during our morning coffee on the balcony:)
so here's the first in a mini series of our time in st. lucia. a hike we did today.
enjoy.. a fabulous fete will resume normal posts next week!
