Timeshel Instagram Photo Printing App

As a mother to a 3.5  year old and 8 month old, I am frequently pulling out my iPhone to snap candid moments of my sons. timeshel is an iOs app that makes these favorite moments come to life via a monthly (and very affordable!) photo subscription service.  Time is something I don’t have a lot of and timeshel allows me quickly pick out my favorite photos each month and have them delivered to my doorstep. The app is incredibly user friendly and I was able to pick out the photos I wanted printed in a matter of minutes.

timeshel offers 2 tiers of subscriptions: 10 high quality prints per month, delivered in a nifty envelope for $5.95/month or 30 high quality prints per month delivered in the Shel (shown above) for $14.95/month. The shel is very convenient as it is easy to stack and store with other shels in addition to serving as a picture holder.

Need it Now! Small Business Series: Gleamsters

Custom Confetti Canvas

I’m thrilled to annouce a new feature on the blog featuring some of my favorite up and coming small businesses called Need it Now!. To start out our series, are the lovely ladies of Gleamsters! It all began when the lovely Aubrey Kinch posted a photo of her new sparkly canvas on her Instagram feed. It caught my eye and I immediately checked out the Gleamsters website and fell in love with everything! They specialize in creating beautiful Confetti canvases. Not only are they so eye-catching, but you can order one cast in epoxy which preserves the canvas and makes it shine oh-so-brightly. Read More… Need it Now! Small Business Series: Gleamsters

Malvi Mallows – Thin Mint Krispy Treats


I’m a sucker for trying new products and when I was walking around Anthropologie, I stumbled across the most delicious looking Marshmallow Sandwiches. I grabbed a some of the Vanilla Salted Caramel sandwiches and devoured the entire package in the car- they were THAT good. Mali Mallow offers premium “Mallows”, Marshmallow Sandwiches and Shortbread cookies. I have tried their entire product line and EVERYTHING is amazingly good. I can’t even stomach ‘ol Kraft marshmallows anymore, lol. Read More… Malvi Mallows – Thin Mint Krispy Treats

Holiday Crafting with Silhouette

I’m very big into crafting. Especially around the holidays! I was just sent a Silhouette Portrait to try out and I had no idea it was capable of doing SO much! I’m slapping myself for not getting one a long time ago. Just playing with ideas for Christmas alone I came up with dozen of ideas. I wanted to share some of my personal favorites!


Creative Christmas CraftsIf you’re like me, when people ask you for your Christmas list, it’s always hard to think of something on the spot, right? I made a couple dozen “want” tags and whenever we get catalogs in the mail I use them to leave “subtle” hints around the house. I have noticed some of them have disappeared, so I’ll know if they’re working in a few weeks!

Creative Christmas CraftsWhen giving gifts, cute packaging is half the fun. It’s extra special when you make it personal. I used this gift tag template to create these fun designs. Tie on a little twine, and BOOM!

If you upgrade your software to the Designer edition, you can turn any file you create into a .svg file and the machine will cut out! I am obsessed with hand lettering and created this thank you card for after the holidays. Who wouldn’t want a hand lettered thank you in gold?
