Here's to Fabulous Beginnings!

I wanted to make the divine Jenn & Jacqui a little something for their new nest. Now that I can confirm they've received it (and in one piece none the less!) I can show you some photos. It is pretty hot down in Australia so hopefully the winter theme will keep the girls cool - at least in their minds!


I had this bird paper for quite a while. I picked it up during an NYC shopping trip and wasn't sure what I would do with it. Well, this seemed like the perfect project! I'm quite honored - the Ladies J even put this piece on their sidebar! Thanks girls!


I am quite honored to have a designer gal by Jacqui and she sent along another! This time featuring my sister Shelley and Margot against my favorite backdrop - Cape Cod!

Thanks so much Jenn & Jacqui! I hope you are loving your new nest and I wish you every peace and happiness in your new home!

Karla, your "NEST" creation is gorgeous! You didn such a great job with it and I bet your friends were extremely excited to have it. It's very, very pretty and I love the colors and the little birds - it's perfect! Also, love the little cartoon caricatures of you, your sister, and your puppy.
