I am a huge Lindsey Letters fan. Have you seen her darling new line of prints and cards for baby? In. Love. I especially like the “You Are My Sunshine” canvas because it is bright and cheery and makes me think of spring (something that hasn’t quite arrived yet here in Chicago!) I crafted a mini inspiration board for baby girls based on this print. I had so much fun “shopping” and collecting pieces that reflect the same springy, happy, floral, and handwritten charm as the canvas. Do you ever find inspiration for your children’s clothing in unusual places? It can be so fun to look at things not only for what they are, but what they can be!

Jun13 Off to the Races 2013
This Horse Racing themed birthday party is so unique and fun, I’m in love. Any excuse I can have to wear an oversized hat and get dressed up, I’m in! I think my favorite detail are those little Derby Pies. Yum!
Here’s some details from the designer:
“In planning the classic 1st birthday celebration, I wanted to create a party that appealed to both adults and children. Adults love horse races and children love ponies, so what a more perfect marriage than an “Off to the Races” birthday affair? This theme became even more fabulous when held in coordination with televised coverage of some of the most popular races. Dads could watch, moms could sip sweet tea, and babies could play on their rocking horses.
We decided to mix southern favorites like derby pie and sweet tea with a modern popcorn bar. Children could be interactive in creating the perfect popcorn to-go mix with the popcorn bar. Peanuts, chocolate chips, marshmallows, peanut butter chips, and M&Ms were just a few of the endless tasty possibilities!
The table was complete with a chocolate pink rosette cake from the local grocery store. This decision kept the party affordable, put a younger twist on the classic red rose decor, and was extra messy for Ella’s cake smash. What a yummy 1st birthday for a darling little girl!”

Mar11 Mint and Peach 2013
Love the Color Palette for this baby shower, and the backdrop knocks this shower right out of the park, then to top it all off with lavender soap favors…it’s all so dazzling!
Here’s a bit from the woman who made it all happen:
“I started with a soft shades of mint and peach, and paired them with a deep eggplant, emerald green and true gold to help balance out the “baby” feel with a few sophisticated notes of color. A fine linen paper was chosen for the invitation, gift tags for the handmade lavender soap guests took with them, multi layered tags for each plate of food to identify the indgrediants, and other printed pieces used throughout the event. I created a modern backdrop using smile 2″ squares stitched together. This backdrop hung behind the food table and framed a set of gorgeous handmade wooden vases.” -Susan
