Next Issue

Thursday, December 11, 2014

Have you guys gotten all of your Christmas shopping finished??? Yeah, me either. 

I have been told that I am really, really hard to buy for. I'm not sure exactly what that says about me, but I guess I would probably agree. One thing that I have given up this year because, well, they are so expensive, is my addiction to buying decorating magazines. When I added up what I was spending each month on my favorites, it was a bit shocking. Plus, you can get so much visual inspiration loveliness online with Pinterest. But, I'm not going to lie, I love reading the stories about the people whose homes are featured in the pages of the magazines. And I like seeing the whole house, not just one pinned image. I actually will pick the longest line when checking out at the grocery store just so I can peruse the latest Traditional Home!! 

So, imagine my excitement when I just discovered the new app called Next Issue. For $9.99 a month {the cost of 2 magazines!!} you get online access to over 140 magazines!!!!  This is a joint effort by 6 of the best publishers -- Conde Nest, Hearst, Meredith, News Corp, Rogers Communications and Time Inc. Here are some titles included in 'my favorites'. 




Seriously good titles, you guys!!!!

You can read every issue of each of these magazines every month {including back issues}!!! They are offering a one month free trial {I am free trialing it currently} as well as gift options of 1, 3, 6 or 12 month options. If you have a hard to buy for creative on your list, this would be a great gift!!! Check out all of the magazines included here.

Floral party

Monday, July 07, 2014


Hope you enjoyed your nice long holiday weekend! Friday holidays are simply the best, right? Since we are all in full-time summer mode now, there are probably a few parties and dinner with friends in your future. Speaking of, have you seen the sweet floral party collection at Target that was done in collaboration with one of my favorite blogs, Poppytalk?? 



These have a great vintage vibe and the price points are insane!!! 

I’m talking bright shabby-chic floral patterns, portable patterned cake stands, pink vintage-look plastic flatware, fun glamping equipment, adorable ice cream cups, and even floral marshmallow roasting forks! 











And if you are going to be a guest at a party and are need of an awesome hostess gift, I have one for you!!!


I discovered these little blown glass vases at White Rabbit Botanical and fell in love. This makes giving a bottle of wine soooo much more special. 



I tried it on several pretty bottles {and if you aren't a wine person, how about hanging it on a liquor bottle...a homemade bottle of oil...be creative! }






There is a small hole near the top that you fill with water and place your flowers in. 



And did I mention that they are $8.99 {!!!} Stock up!!

Leelyn and Company

Thursday, June 19, 2014




Did you guys know that June 18th has now been officially titled 'National Day of Making'???? I know!!!! Exciting, right?? I can't believe this one slid by me, but just you wait for next year -- we will celebrate!! As you know, I am a proud 'Maker' and love to promote other makers here on my little blog. Especially young makers! It just does my heart so good to know that the internet offers this wonderful spot for artists to use their God-given gifts to make money... sigh... oh, to have had the great www when I was a youngster.   


**********************************************

I discovered the talents of Raleigh's Sidney Lee, on a friends Facebook. This talented watercolor artist just graduated with a Communications degree from NC State {!!} Sidney has been doodling since middle school, covering notebooks, napkins and planners with her lovely lettering. With the encouragement of friends who fell in love with her art, and a friend who asked for a new logo... the idea of Leelyn and Company was born. She launched her website and online store in February and has dreams to expand her calligraphy skills and perhaps venture into the wedding industry.

'Ultimately, I pray each week for the Lord to do with Leelyn whatever he sees fit, and ultimately, for my small business to glorify Him and expand His kingdom. I am willing to take it wherever He leads!


************************************************

























Check out all of the beautiful items in Sidney's shop here. Or you can contact her for a custom print or logo for your business. You can also follow along on her blog, here.

Put a letter on it

Monday, May 19, 2014

Excuse me while I get real southern with ya.












Love these monogrammed belts designed by Kristin Henchel Designs. She offers tons of designs that can be printed or embroidered in her etsy shop.

Or if you want your monogram a little closer to your heart, then check out these sweet necklaces that are hand made by Danielle in her shop, Merriweather Council.



Wouldn't these be fun bridesmaids gifts?

'Cause when you're southern, you use them everywhere you can.'
