my new obsession

As if I needed another reason to keep me up late at night... my office remodel turned out to be fantasic way for me to creae even more and has me looking at light in ways I never had before. I'm beyond exicted about a new year and new projects. As Robert Emmitt from Community Bible would say...to stay curious as God intends you to! Completely intrigued by natural light and the results that come with it!

I love that this photo in the middle captures my youngest son's uneven beautiful curls ♥

Case of the Mondays FREEBIE

It's not often that we have a day full of drizzle in our small Texas town which left me and my two cabin feverish toddler boys not quite ready for the Monday ahead. We are well into the holiday rush here and rushing along with you!

:: a few exciting updates ::

Modern Bebe's Dr. Seuss inspired party was linked on the Facebook of Project Nursery last week as well as our latest party display of a Big Top Carnival as one of the top three in the running for top project of the month on ProjectNursery.com... I wish I had a moment to keep up as this all became news to me much later than when the events took place, thank goodness for good friends to keep me straight!

Today, as I needed a little more of a boost than my K-cup could offer, I received some fantastic news that just made me float. One of our summer projects is mentioned on Caden Lane's blog! The shower was completely inspired by Katy' Mamari's Boutique Bedding collection, the beautiful design was such fun to work with and I am just in awe to be any part of being recognized by her. I have admired the owner of Caden Lane bedding and local Nursery Couture Boutique for quite sometime, being a stay at home mom initially I would search deals to get as many items from her shop as I could to design around my little strapping boys! I will never forget the moment that Katy was in Nursery Couture... as I made my weekly prego visit... she had brought in the start of her creation of one of her child's birthday invitations... it was to be packaged in a clear plastic box with candy inside, many around were teasing her of this idea.... to me, it was the first time my mind did it's first.... CLICK.... Many of those close to me love to say my mind is always turning... I just can't resist a moment to stop and appreciate great design!

If you haven't had a chance to read the success story of Katy - you definitely need to, such an inspiration!

To celebrate the moment I am in the midst of remodeling my office and left my favorite touches for last.. the custom wallart, here is a freebie of a 4x6 inch from my place to create to yours!

Falling in ♥ this season...

It's been an absolute JOY to work with such beautiful babies and great photography as I've had the honor to create as these first time parents announce their little ones to the world!

::: meet mr. london knox & little miss vivian lane :::

I'm super excited to have had the pleasure to create my first

photo shoot & design!!!

I am by no means a professional behind the camera but put the setting on automatic and open up some window lighting and we were pretty proud of the ending results! It was amazing to be a full part of creating these sweet memories for such a sweet family!

congratulations sam + justin... here is a sneak peek!

Be the UNIQUE Kid on the Block

I am just loving how our latest Sesame Street inspired party turned out for one of Modern Bebe's favorite clients, Ginny and little Ms. Brooklynn!

The fun mix of pink makes me have that urge for a little girl ♥

OH... and the personalized placemats!! Perfect for any theme as easy decor and favors! These 9x11 inch heavy card stock/laminated mats are hand wash friendly and store perfectly in your kitchen drawer to use as a placemat or display in the playroom, as each design has a back side with the child's name in trace the dot font!

Speaking of little ones... I have a handful of new birth announcements that I can't wait to post once I give the new mama's a chance to send them out in mail. AND I am happy to say I am in the midst of doing my first PHOTOSHOOT and design!

All of this and more creations coming soon!

Wednesday sure feels like Monday!

Well it's an exciting day today, though I feel like I'm dragging like it's a Monday!
My youngest niece was brought into this world, a healthy beautiful baby girl and I just cannot wait to create for her!

ALSO an added +

One of Modern Bebe's parties was featured on the ever-so-lovely ProjectNursery.com!

I stumbled upon this site years ago before I first became a mom and would stare at all of the gorgeous nursery creations and great mommy and baby finds! A close friend suggested I put my first party package on the site that later featured on Project Nursery's blog. This was a pivotal moment, as I was praying about to going back to work full-time as a Special Needs teacher or pursuing my new found passion in Design.. prayers were answered on that very day - God is GOOD! ((though I think I put in way more hours than full-time :wink: )) & now I'm honored to say we have a new feature on Project Nursery's FB! Be sure to 'Like' their page on Facebook.com to get even easier updates of the latest and greatest trends for nurseries, parties and showers, baby finds and fabulous articles written by many of their designers! Our Texas local - Katie, creator of Caden Lane, even blogs for the site from time to time!
((and you can PIN your ideas on Pinterest))


Red and turquoise cover my desktop and craft room daily, I have so many new products in stock in this theme so be sure to check them all out at MODERN BEBE on Etsy.

Yes, yes... we are NOW in the holiday season for all of those fall colored lovers, Red and Green will be making it's way into your household soon enough -- be sure to check for FREEBIE PRINTABLES coming soon!
