happy friday, ya'll!
what a week – it's been one of those that makes me feel like i just can't seem to keep up!

the major highlight has been a little story with a sale over at sometimes sweet – the lovely author/creator, danielle wrote a happy little post about me and i have given the readers a celebratory discount on my nursery and kiddo collections! hop over and check it all out. no need to do anything, simply purchase the one you like via her blog! hooray!

also, double dutch has some fun new items in the shop for fall –
i've created a selection of recipe cards and market lists that i'm hoping some of you may like!

{pack of 5 recipe cards in blueberry, dill leaf, dill flower and parsley - only $8}

{wood clip board with 20 market list sheets - only $12}

both were inspired by our new adventure bloom and if you're interested 
they're there just waiting for a happy kitchen to fly off to!
they also make great gifts in a basket, stocking or thank you for a fabulous thanksgiving dinner.

(also if you love that little embroidered hand towel in the photos

also, on a last note of love and sweetness 
my 6th wedding anniversary is this sunday...
it's been the best 6 years of my life with my best friend
and it just keeps getting better.

can't wait to celebrate!

hello friends!
hope all of you are doing well on this lovely warm and rainy day. 
something about this weather makes me feel super content and calm –
currently i'm really enjoying working in the low light and mild temperature. 
no air-conditioning, no fan, no heat. just stillness. ahhhh it's so very nice.

so, here's a little more update from around my parts.
our little bloom project had a great spot at the fall fest and the weather was amazing!
even though i was thoroughly beat from just sitting around (see my big-bellied self below) i really had a great time talking to people and making some great connections.

furthermore i got to see my latest logo work in action
and fell in love all over again!

here's the scoop: i created phoebe's pure food logo a couple months ago 
and have been waiting until now to show it off. hope you like it!

phoebe's love of blueberries and purist of intentions with her foods hopefully shows through in this happy blueberry bush design i created for her. the white "dove" in the bush is there to symbolize the purity of the food and is frankly... just too stinkin' cute to go without.

i love to make a logo that can be just as beautiful when used vertically
as well as horizontally...

and you can't forget about it looking good in black and white...

here's the logo used as a stamp for her product bags she had at the fest–
so pretty, right!? mmm i wish i was drinking that tea right now!
check out more of what phoebe had there at the bloom blog.

last but not least – my husband and i got to give back 
to a very special lady in my heart...
alex milspaw started helping me a while back after i talked with her about a book i was reading focused on mind, body and infertility. alex knew all about what i was going through and even how to help via her wonderful relaxation recordings. after listening to them and having a recording created just for me i was hooked and forever thankful. so, when she decided to create a professional recording, keegan and i helped any way that we could! 

keegan did all the studio recordings and i made a simple design for the sleeve...


and if you're suffering from any sort of chronic pain, infertility, anxiety or just want a way to really slow down, relax, and be mindful on a daily basis

oh, how i love making beautiful things for beautiful people!
i'm so lucky. i must remember it and be thankful everyday.

hey party people –
we are finally back from our fantastic beach vacation!
check out some highlights below...

it was so very much needed and will be the very last one 
(for just the three of us) before this baby comes. 
oh, how excited we are!

and just to add to the excitement going on around here
(as if that's possible!) i've got some major stuff a brewin' in the work department –

first off, during my vacation i participated in another fab.com sale.
 i feel so happy and thankful to the fab team to be reaching more and more customers every day! special thanks to my parents for helping me get my merchandise in gear. xoxo

and second, a little secret has finally been let out of the bag. 
we have officially soft-launched a little project called  bloom where you are 

created by myself and two of the most awesome ladies i've met this year.
{also known as: phoebe and christin}

remember this post?  well, we've collected our thoughts, wound them up, and are now letting them go– check us out here and on facebook and if you're in the west reading area tomorrow for fall fest 
please come see our pop-up-shop outside of hello bluebird from 1-3pm.

i just can't say how much i am loving how this fall is starting out. 
i do have a feeling it's going to be the best. one. ever.
but it's not like i've ever said that before...
