Since I loved these little guys so much, I went to check out the Ugmonk website to see what other items might amaze me. What I found were these clever typography shirts!
I'm not one for graphic tees, but at the same time, I'm a sucker for letterforms which is why the typography prints so fun to me. And while the designer declines to share the secret of how Ugmonk became the name of his company, it's really not such a secret to why it's so successful!
Christmas with my Sisters
Wednesday, December 29, 2010
Pictures from Christmas Eve. This is when Brinkley refused to take a "sister" picture bc she was too busy taking quarters out of the slot machine, so Amanda and I took one by ourselves. Consequently, there was a meltdown over by the slots, which by the way is not a Christmas decoration. It's there all year round.
About to unwrap presents on Christmas morning. About 95% of those presents are torn through by Brinkley in a matter of 10 minutes. Play hair dryers, walking dogs and puzzle pieces everywhere.
I decided to display mine on top of the refrigerator anyway. Makes me think of Christmas with my two sisters. :)
Bling in the New Year
Tuesday, December 28, 2010
I helped out the Geaux team with their web events and flyers this year, and as a special thanks, they are giving my blog friends a discount! You will get $10 off ticket price when you use "APINCHOFLOVELY" in the promo code box.
And just in case, you're still out searching for the perfect dress, I rounded up some of my favorite metallic options:
In the Neutral Zone
Monday, December 27, 2010
This color will most likely not be up in the Etsy shop anytime soon, as they seem to sell as as soon as I get them completed. Your best bet, if your interested in one, is to send me an email!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas holiday! And don't forget to send out thank you cards for all of the lovely gifts you received!

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday! Be thankful for your family and friends, and remember the real reason that we all come together to celebrate.
And don't stuff yourself with sugar cookies - it's too late for me!

Caroline and Will's Wedding
Wednesday, December 22, 2010
I made a necklace specifically for the dress I wore to the wedding. The dress was tiered, pleated, and ruffled. (I bought it while in Chicago this summer, so I had plenty of time to think about what accessories to wear with it.) The necklace was mostly pale pink and teal, and at the last minute, I decided to add a strand of pearls into it. So literally in the car on the way to the church, I was threading in pearls to match my pearl earrings.
Not only did I have the pleasure of watching Caroline and Will's vows, but I also designed their wedding invitations!
A Very Merry HoliDIY
Tuesday, December 21, 2010
After flattening the paper towel tube, cut it into equal parts. Paint each of the pieces with whatever color you wish (I chose gold to match my ribbon). When dry, secure the pieces together in a star/snowflake shape using your glue dots. Last, poke a hole in the top and tie on a ribbon!
Depending on how fancy you'd like to get, you could also substitute glue instead of paint and cover each ornament in glitter!
Perfect in Purple
Monday, December 20, 2010
online store! One comes in a short length and the other in long length. Both have double curb chain in bronze with over-sized hook hardware.
Just in time for LSU to play in the Cotton Bowl! Show your Tiger spirit or just your love of for all things purple!

Christmas Cookie Decorating!
Friday, December 17, 2010
At the end of it all, we baked three bags of sugar cookies, and if I had it my way, there would have been a fourth. We decorated long into the night - I think about 11 p.m. to be exact. There was flour everywhere, glitter icing, scary-looking gingerbread men and maybe a little competition. Okay yes, so Beau and I argued about the cookie dough, and he accused me of copying his snowflakes, but it was like a giant flashback into graphic design school which was fun.
Now not only do I have a fridge full of cookies (that I've been eating for breakfast), but I think I'm fully in the Christmas spirit!
