so i know i've been slacking on posting, this summer was such a whirlwind!

but i thought i'd swing by real quick to show some luggage tags i made for a recent bridal order - the bride had a travel themed wedding so what better than to get her girls matching luggage tags! fun huh?

and here are the back sides of the tags... do your friend's move a lot? her's do so she just used their cell number and email addy... great call!

now you might notice a HUGE difference in the image quality of the luggage tag photos and these earring shots... i got a new camera and i'm having so much fun playing with it... i still don't really know what i'm doing but i'm trying =) 

here are some earrings i sent out to a client's friend for her birthday... this reminds me i really should go update my shop soon... i've just been taking a breather, hence the reason there isn't much listed right now in either of my shops!

 i love these baroque crystals and the simplicity of this style of earrings... 
not to mention the color is great as we head into the fall season

oh and here's a picture of the Misters {as i like to call her} hanging out under my worktable... sorry had to post cause she's just that darn cute!

i hope you're having a great week... i'll be back with more goodies soon!

{September printables} free birthday + anniversary planning pages

hey readers!

i'm happy to announce that i have a free gift to y'all today... for a long time now i've been Pinning lots of mommy binders, household planning binders, etc. on pinterest.  i love, no ADORE organization, however i'll be the first to admit that when it comes down to getting the job done it's always easy to find something else to do!  so i figured with my business craziness easing up, kids going back to school {though i don't have any of my own}, summer coming to a close, and football season starting {go trojans!}... it felt like a natural transition to begin this quest to get myself organized!  i thought i'd ease into getting a household binder created by beginning with something fun... some printables to help track birthdays + anniversaries of your friends and family.  and since i'm such a big fan of summer i thought i'd keep it fun by using chevrons and bright colors to help savor the little bit of summer we have left!

so here they are... oh and i'm still learning how to use my snazzy new awesome big-kid camera, so be kind =)

pool blue + light charcoal grey for January - March

pool blue + chartreuse for October - December

close up of all the date lines

think these will be helpful for you, go ahead and download them here!

i printed them front + back on 100lb card stock, so the jan-march is on one side with april-june on the back and then the same for the later months... i did however learn my lesson after i started to fill in the dates! i goofed and wrote one on the wrong month and can't white it out very easily, so my advice is print them front + back on cardstock then LAMINATE THEM so then you can write with a dry erase marker just in case you goof like i did!

if you'd like the colors customized i'll be offering these in my jdv paperie etsy shop soon along with lots of other pages to add to this binder i'm creating! wanna create one too? keep following along and i'll be offering some more freebies for your binders too!

happy organizing everyone
