Stina Stitches

My mom loves to needlepoint so when we found kits for needlepoint key fobs on etsy we quickly placed an order! Stina Stitches on etsy is definitely the place to go for these kits since she has tons of designs to choose from. These will probably be what I give out for graduation and I can't wait to choose the different images! I will be ordering another one for myself too since she cam out with one that is a Lilly inspired dress...I die!

This is the one my mom did for me and I love it! She did such a great job and finished it the same day she started it! My mom said that the kit came with great directions and plenty of thread to complete the key fob!

Here is a close up of the owl and my moms handiwork! 

I really want this one too, so I'll probably order it when I order a bunch of the kits for graduation gifts but I won't give it to anyone and instead sneak it off to college. How does that sound mom? Hehe!

Here are other ones I will be ordering and love!

Which one is your favorite?

The Monogram Princess Review and Giveaway

Nope this isn't my nickname (although sometimes I think it should be :) but instead this is a precious Etsy shop with Lilly Pulitzer, Monograms, and More! The Monogram Princess sells a variety of items with Lilly Pulitzer fabric monograms, pockets, and letters all customized to fit your style and preferences!

Lacey, the owner creates super cute Lilly pocket t-shirts, pillow cases, tote bags, and more! She so kindly sent me a t-shirt with my monogram on it in a fun pink and green print! She can also do greek letters and her shirts would be cute for big/little gifts for all you greek girls! 

Mine is on a white pocket shirt (size M, I like my t-shirts roomy) with the pink and green monkey pattern. On my The Monogram Princess Wishlist is something with the light blue, multicolored patchwork pattern!

The shirt is really soft and I love the way the monogram looks on it!

In most of the pictures I took you can't see how bright and fun the fabric really is but in the photo above it is easier to see the actual colors! And how cute are her business cards! A Lilly pattern and a monogram are the perfect way to draw my attention

So y'all could see the cards better I put the card on my Lilly Shift Dress Painting (This was done by me, if you are interested in one email me!). All in all my experience with Lacey has been great and she has so generously offered one of my readers the chance to win their very own Monogrammed Shirt AND a choice of a monogrammed pillow case OR hand painted letter! The winner will get two prizes, what a lucky duck!

Enter Away!

Good Luck!

Prep In Your Step Art For Sale

On my few days off from school I have been doing a lot of painting. Painting is something I love to do but haven't had time for in a while. I have decided that it is something that I am going to make time for on the weekends since I really enjoy it. Since I had time to do A LOT of painting I decided it would be fun to offer some of my art to my readers. I have looked into opening an Etsy shop but am not sure if that is the way I want to go yet. 

This is a preview of some of the paintings I have worked on! I think these would look so cute in a dorm room, closet (dressing room), bathroom, or anywhere. But I am biased :)

Each of my paintings is on an 8'' by 11'' canvas but if you are searching for a larger or smaller size that can also be arranged. Each one is done entirely by hand. Also, each has enough room for your name to be put on the bottom if that is something you desire.

If you are interested in a painting but want to choose your own colors I am completely open to doing a custom painting. You choose the subject and the colors and I will get it to you as soon as I can. For custom projects it can take up to two weeks for me to complete it but I will be sure to email you about the time frame. 
A custom 8"x 11" canvas is $30 

Email me at if you are interested in purchasing any of these items and I will send you a paypal invoice.
