sneak peek...

my website is FINALLY in the process of getting a facelift. (happy dance ensues...)
I am very lucky to have been brought up in a creative where we were all encouraged to pursue whatever makes us happy, and especially lucky because we all chose different paths. my sister is amazing at web/graphic design. my brother? IT work is his specialty- coding a new website? piece of cake. see where this is coming in beneficial for me? :)

they were kind enough to offer to revamp my website as a christmas gift and we've been working away since then.  they even brought in a colleague, Vincent IT, to make sure that everything was up to par and that the back end was as user friendly as it could be (I need A LOT of help).

I can't wait to share it with you guys.  it should be up in the coming weeks and I hope you'll check it out! the blog may be getting a much needed new look as well, so stay tuned!

I have the pleasure of working with some of the sweetest ladies (and gents) on the planet! I received this thank you card in the mail yesterday from one of my most recent brides and it made my week.  I have a group of corkboards hanging in my studio that I put up right after I started oatmeal lace to hold my first business card, ideas for packaging, a sweet 'you can do it' note from my husband and inspirational photos ripped from magazines.  its turned into my 'happy wall' where I keep all the little notes I receive from people I've worked with over the past year and a half.  when I'm in a funk or overwhelmed by my to do list, all I've got to do is to look up and I'm reminded why I do what I do.
so thank you to all of YOU. I am truly blessed.

hometown love.

even though it takes me longer to pack the car for trips up to my hometown than it does to actually drive there (it's a 4 hour drive) it is so completely worth the effort.  I arrive and nanny & papa get a weekend of baby love while I get at least two days of 8 consecutive hours of work (minus feeding breaks for little man and eating breaks for me)
 as you can see from the  photos, mama is happy with the amount of work completed and baby is happy because he's the center of attention all day long.  
hope you all had a relaxing and fun filled weekend!  xoxo

tangerine tango.

love, love, love the pantone color of 2012. in its honor, I bought some fabric I'd been eyeing for a while and will be offering clutches made out of it for $40 until it's gone. come and get it while it lasts!!
