One of my favorite requests to receive from friends and family is my help finding a gift for someone special. Over the years I’ve been asked to put together Easter baskets and I thought I’d share some of my favorite things to include for a non-food/candy basket for grown up girls! These photos are of a ‘mock’ basket of ideas that include gifts I have personally received that would be perfect to give for Easter! (Of course, I’m keeping all of these items, but you get the idea!)
For the past month (since temporarily closing my Etsy shop) I’ve been receiving frantic e-mails and DMs from brides in desperate need of sequin hangers and gold foil graphics for their wedding websites! Y’all know I’m trying to move from Germany to America and remodel a several thousand square foot house too, right?! Well I remember what it was like to try to plan a wedding (I planned mine in 3 months!) and I couldn’t handle to desperation in you sweet bride’s messages anymore! I opened the shop back up yesterday and have since received 47 custom order inquiries! You ladies are the BEST! Now, I told all of you though that your orders are not going out till July 13th but that didn’t seem to deter any of you (bless your souls) so I will work hard to get those hangers and graphics out to you ASAP if you will all keep being patient with me 🙂
I thought you might like to see a little peek at my temporary work space though! My home office space was one of the first rooms I had painted and really love the deep grayish blue it turned out. The color reminds me of the sea after a storm. The entire house is painted different shades of the color you’ll see in the photos below. So yes… 50 shades of gray haha!
Tufted velvet chair from Wayfair.com.
Stationary from ban.do, Rifle Paper Co., and Daily Dishonest, washi tapes from Staples by Scotch.
Acrylic pen holder from HomeGoods, pug tape dispenser and stapler from Target, pink pens by Poppin from TJMaxx, gold pens from Kate Spade, gold iPad cover from Amazon.

So now you’ve seen the only clean, organized, neat areas of my new house! I promise more photos within a few weeks when everything is pretty and perfect 🙂
