{Tea Cup Tuesday!}

I don't know about all of you out there
but I am getting Spring Fever pretty good!

Typically on Tea Cup Tuesday,
I would share with you a
pretty little table setting with a
beautiful tea cup, but today
I wanted to share with you
a new way to use those
old chipped tea cups that you
just can't bring yourself to throw away...
{don't worry, we all have a few :)}

aren't these just fabulous for the garden
{or the outside of the patio of the Tea Room!}
I do love to craft & make DIY projects
from re-usable items - don't you?
What sort of projects have you done?

{Do you know Etsy?}

I know Etsy VERY well! 
If you hadn't figured out by now,
I get REALLY excited when the
word "craft" comes up and
Etsy is the place for all things
crafty and unique. 

A very "lovely" site that you have to experience! 

Since I stay at home with Olivia {3 years old}
 & Chance {9 months}
I decided that I just had to find a way to
express my creativity
{and maybe bring a little income in!}. 
When I went to school at
Oklahoma State - GO POKES!!!
my Major was Graphic Design.
 I have always enjoyed designing &
 am so thankful that I have found a way
 to still use the talent God gave me &
do something I enjoy {designing parties!}
all at the same time. 

Step in - Etsy!  Etsy is an online
store for all things handmade. 
I mean you can find almost
anything on here.  I love to shop from Etsy
so much that I decided I would
give a shop of my own a try!

I'd love for you to visit!
Here's my newest collection!
Chevron & Polka Dot
"Sweet Baby" Shower 
Printable - Chevron or Polka Dot - Baby Shower Invitation - Choose Your Colors
also available in
Printable - Chevron or Polka Dot - Baby Shower Invitation - Choose Your Colors
*colors are customizable - pick your own!
Printable - Chevron & Polka Dot Baby Shower Food Tags - Choose Your Colors
*can be left blank or customized
Printable Chevron & Polka Dots Baby Shower Choose Your Colors Banner   Printable Chevron & Polka Dots Baby Shower Choose Your Colors Banner
wouldn't this make a beautiful
"Sweet Baby" baby shower!
This design was created for
Baby Joule that is due this Spring! 
Her nursery is going to be coral & grey -
I thought that was a very modern
 & fun color combo.

Please keep me in mind for your
next event or life milestone!

I can design you a beautiful
birth announcment, save the date card,
 pregnancy announcment,
Birthday Party Invitation
{with or without a photo}
& so so much more!

Let's just say that I all but ran around
 the block yelling when I saw
our Spring Tea Event at
Cheesecake Therapy printed on
the Events page for the
 March/April issue of the
beautiful Tea Time Magazine!

Tea Time will print local events in the publication when submitted so I figured - why not?  Well, that was one of the best decisions I had ever made.  We filled up our March Tea at CT within one day & opened a 2nd seating that filled up the following day.  We had so many responses to a local tea in Olde Town Arvada that we are almost 100% booked for our April tea!  Such an exciting time for us!

Thank you for all of your support! 
My dream is starting to really feel like a reality -
 now to try & find a store front in the right spot!

Every Olde Town needs a tea room & So Lovely is the one {I really really really hope!}

beautiful post about a wedding using green - very springy!
Here are a few pictures from our Spring Tea,

our new banner that I made for Spring! 
It says "tea party"

the 11 o'clock seating!  We had two seatings {11 a.m. & 1 p.m.}
 - more to come on this but let's just say that we filled up FAST
 & just had to open up a second time for reservations! 
Not a bad problem to have ;)
