What crayon are you?

Okay, I'll admit it..I'm a sucker for these short quizzes, I can't pass them up! I was told that I am a purple crayon and I agree with most of it so I think this quiz was pretty accurate. I guess my doctor would agree, too. She told me my stomach ulcer is due to my "Type A" personality :-( I laughed when I read some of it:
You hold yourself to a sky high standard, and you are always graceful.People envy, idolize, and copy you without realizing it. You are an icon for those who know you.
Fun stuff!

You Are a Purple Crayon
Your world is colored in dreamy, divine, and classy colors.You hold yourself to a sky high standard, and you are always graceful.People envy, idolize, and copy you without realizing it. You are an icon for those who know you.And while it is hard to be a perfectionist, rest assured it's paying off!Your color wheel opposite is yellow. While yellow people may be wise, they lack the manners and class needed to impress you.

Baby gift for a fellow design team member!

I am the co-founder of an ebay design team (Once Upon A Time) and 2 of our members recently had babies, so....Angie and I decided to buy baby gifts for them. I bought this outfit at Old Navy (you can never go wrong shopping there) and I thought this outfit would be perfect for Melissa's little girl, Ava Esabelle (what a pretty name!). This outfit reminded me of Melissa's scrapbooking style.
I found the wrapping paper in the wedding section/gift wrapping department at good 'ole Wal-Mart. I tied some taffeta-look polka dot ribbon (from Hobby Lobby) into a large bow for the finishing touch. Simple, yet elegant.

Another wholesale order!

Another wholesale order is ready to go! This order is shipping to Provence Gifts. I love this online shop, they have a variety of fabulous merchandise for sale: key rings & fobs, tote bags, lunch totes, memo pads, etc. I was very excited to hear that Provence Gifts will selling my tags at some gift shows, too!

A special thanks to my sister, Jenny (a senior designer for the Callison Dallas office) who designed these elegant new bag toppers for me (since I haven't had time to learn the Adobe Photoshop program that is on my desk gathering dust!).

My First Wholesale Order!

I've been turning down wholesale orders ever since I started listing my cards and gift tags (in my shop) at Well, I finally decided to take the plunge into the wholesale world! These are a few of the greeting cards that were ordered by Vie Maternity Boutique from Canada. What a fabulous shop Melissa Lynne (the owner) has! I hope she loves the cards as much as I enjoyed creating them!
