happy birthday to my #1 fan.

if I were to hire a sales force for Oatmeal Lace, at the top of my list would be my husband. and that's not in a cheesy 'I love him so much' way (although I do). he is constantly promoting my work to colleagues, friends, etc. and while I tend to downplay what I do when people ask, he speaks up, gives me props and always mentions how proud he is of me. I can't tell you how awesome it is to have that kind of support. I can only hope that he knows just how much I appreciate him and all he does to take care of our family.  plus, he gave me my greatest creation ever.  (hint: he's holding him in the photo) :)
beckett, maggie, moose and I love you very much and hope you have the best day ever!!

FSU collegiate clutch, limited edition :)

in honor of tomorrow's big, big, HUGE game I had to do a post about the limited edition Florida State clutch I am going to be featuring in the shop for the next month. chevron stripes rule (but don't tell my husband) and in the midst of the whole missoni craze at target it felt like the right time to debut this little lady.  I'm seriously sad that I won't be in Tallahassee this weekend for the game, it is my hometown and we'd have babysitters more than willing to watch Beckett.  BUT...I will be pairing this clutch with my fancy cocktail attire while at the Big Brothers Big Sisters gala here in Tampa.  do I care that it doesn't match? no way, jose! it's my way of being there in spirit. GO NOLES!!!

well, hello there!

it's been quite a while since my last post and I hope you'll all excuse the absence.  i've been enjoying getting to know my little man, and aside from checking email and facebook sporadically I haven't spent too much time online.  he turned a month old yesterday (cannot believe it!!) and I'm slowly but surely trying to get back into a routine of work without staring at his sweet face all day long.... man, it is hard! don't worry- this won't be turning into a baby blog, but I hope you don't mind if pictures of him show up every once in awhile...I'll strategically place him in photos with Oatmeal Lace products so you're getting two for one. sound good? ok! so today I've included a photo I took for his one month birthday. I'll be using the pillow (which I made for his nursery) for growth comparisons each month and probably also take one of him on different fabrics I want to highlight just for fun. hope you all are doing great and it's good to be back! xo
