styled shoot featured on green wedding shoes!

November 8th | features, found here & there, inspiration, photography

A little while back I joined forces with the amazing Cameron Ingalls to style a vow renewal shoot and it was recently featured on Green Wedding Shoes!

The gold xo cake topper and the gold mr. and mrs. banner looked adorable on top of a fantastic cake made my Two Cooks Catering! And how yummy do those appetizers look?! I may have snuck a bite or two.

The tables were decorated with hand painted rocks, vintage plates and cups, napkins from World Market with super cute wooden utensils wrapped in our diy pom poms. So inviting don’t you think?

We couldn’t forget about the kids! The couple renewing their vows, Brit and James, have the sweetest kids you will ever meet! They loved their little fox plates and coloring page placemats.

I am so thankful for all the amazing people who came together to make this happen!! It was such a fun collaborative effort and I could not be more pleased with the results! Check out the feature on GWS here!

Well friends, it’s been an incredible season for us. We’re in the midst of having our strongest holiday season ever and I am so thankful! Also, we’ve been featured in some FABULOUS magazines this month. I am so humbled to see these–and so grateful! Take a look!

 Celebrate Magazine has a gorgeous feature on the ‘Celebrate Cake Topper‘ and Numbered Wine Charms. I loved how they used the topper in cheese. Wouldn’t this be perfect for a wine and cheese party? I love it! Thank you Celebrate Magazine–we love you!

American Baby Magazine featured our molded heart ornament. We’ve had a hard time keeping these in stock–they’ve gone crazy! Have you picked out a special ornament for 2012?

Pregnancy and Newborn Magazine featured our Heartstrings Wall Hanging. This was one of my favorite magazine when my boys were babies–so this feature makes my heart happy!

Romantic Homes featured our Pretty Like A Bow Necklace. This necklace is such a statement piece–and super sweet. Thank you Romantic Homes! We are so grateful!

Where Women Cook Magazine featured our ‘Feed Your Soul’ necklace. This necklace has been one of our most popular. It’s available as part of our boutique collection at Earth Angels Studios. They did a full page feature–and we love it! This magazine is a favorite. Yay!

Have you seen the recent SLO Life magazine issue? We live in San Luis Obispo, and it’s a well loved local magazine. I had to laugh, because the cover is almost life size. 😉 So far I’ve been recognized at the Gap, the thrift store and the grocery store. I am so honored to be in this magazine. They did a full interview that talks about our workshop and family. You can read the article here.

I am so grateful {and kind of in shock!} about these features. It’s amazing–I don’t deserve it.

Confession–I’m a total magazine junkie! Are you? What are your favorite magazines?

boutique love: poppy, morro bay

September 20th | found here & there, jewelry, san luis obispo

One of my very favorite shops in Morro Bay is carrying our heartfelt line. Poppy has been a favorite boutique for years and years now. I got a great pair of jeans there, like, 7 years ago, and I was hooked! From cards, to jewelry, and pretty candles–it’s seriously an adorable and unique shop. Find a dress for yourself and the perfect gift for a friend.

Wil you please hop over and ‘like’ Poppy on Facebook? Because when one of your favorite shops starts carrying your jewelry–it’s a happy, happy day! And if you’re in Morro Bay, make sure to stop by. Thank you, Poppy. You rock.

 We had some super press lately–and I want to share it with you. Every time I see our products in print, it’s surreal and so fun.
