Color Crush : Pink & Mint

I have to admit , I've been feeling a bit of the winter blues lately .

All of these below freezing temperatures for weeks on end make it a little difficult to get out of the house with an 18 month old .
It's been almost three days since I've let the house - THREE DAYS .

So , maybe that's why I have a bit of spring on the brain today - or maybe it's just all of these goregous colors that are starting to appear in the boutique windows lately .

This picture totally left me craving some fabulous pink and mint hues , so I put together some images that inspire me !

All images via Pinterest .
If you've been needing a little pink and mint pairing in your life , then you're in luck !
My latest phone cover could be the bright spot that you've been looking for !

The Mini Trefoil Case - $45 . Shop this case , here .
I had a completely different design in mind when I started , but you never know where the process will take you ! Hoping the other image in my head will make it onto a case soon , but really happy with how this one turned out !
Happy winter everyone - sunshine , please fine me soon .

Etsy Round Up : Be My Valentine

I am so grateful to have a venue like like Etsy to share my products on .
It allows so many creative and talented people to share the passion and craft with the world .
So , I thought show some of the other amazing shops on Etsy a little bit of love with a new series on this blog .
I thought I'd start things off with a little look at some of my favorite Valentine's Day products !

Each one is completely custom by color and if you see a different monogram style that you like you can request that as well !

These have set color schemes , but you can mix and match the pattern and monogram until you find a combination that you love !
