Monogram Decoration

Isn’t this gorgeous? I just love how this looks on the front door. I can just imagine it would be a great decor piece in the dining room or bed room.  Just like Holly from, we’ve been in love with monograms for a long time too. That’s what led us into selling wax seals in the first place. Her monogram decoration idea is just beyond cool not to mention timeless.

Southern Proper Monograms, one of Holly’s sponsors, cuts out monograms from birch wood. You can choose different sizes and fonts. We will definitely bookmark this item for a future purchase.

Stuff No One Told Me

Alex Noriega is an illustrator from Barcelona. He draws lessons he has learned in life while trying to make sense of the crisis he was experiencing due to work related issues back in 2010. Visit his blog to see more of his interesting work.

This is so true but hard to remember when you're stressed.

Listening to my instincts saved me from many potentially unpleasant situations

Sally’s Cupcakery

What’s so great about doing business is meeting interesting people. Having a small business allows you to really talk to customers and share ideas. I met up with S when she bought our baker’s twine and we got to talking online later on. She is an avid baker and I asked if she had a blog.

Cupcakes, cookie and other goodies

Working as a project manger at a restaurant company and a mom to her two kids, S takes to baking as her creative outlet. She usually takes orders from friends and acquaintances as she hasn’t launched her business officially yet.

My Fair Baby

This medieval costume looks so cute. It was made by Shawna Jones of MyFaireSeamstress. She’s a 27 year old stay at home mom who has been sewing for many years. When we have our babies, they will definitely be in costume to maximize their cuteness factor. I’m sure playtime will be so much fun for my future little princess or prince.
