Happy Monday Everyone!

So while painting an order this morning I got to brainstorming and came up with a really cool (or at least, I think it's really cool) idea for the blog. Since all of my ideas run through my sketchbook before they make it here or on one of my note cards or invitations, I decided I should start sharing my sketchbook with you all! From invitation ideas to event decor ideas to rambling quotes etc., one day a week will be dedicated to showing everyone how my mind works. Hopefully y'all will have as much fun with it as I do!

Until then though, I thought I would share a happy/exciting moment that happened to me today. Anyone remember this post where I talked about the fabric I fell in love with down in Savannah? Sadly, I was told that it had been discontinued.

Well this morning, I was painting a set of table numbers (which you all will get to see soon) when I heard a knock on the door. A minute later I finally made it over to open the door (between the dog barking/protecting me and paint/ink on my hands it can sometimes become an ordeal!) I find a cardboard box addressed to me. I rip the box open (I really like presents :) ) and what is inside it? A huge amount of the supposedly discontinued fabric!!

My mom had done some magic, found it, and had it mailed to me so I could make our bedroom drapes. Yay!! It was like a Christmas in a box :) Btw- my mom is awesome and I immediately called to let her know so.

Want to see it?? Here you go.

Isn't it awesome? I'm going to attach black out fabric behind it to give it a sturdier feel, as well as to insure the colors appear the same when it's really sunny outside.

Hope you all have a great rest of the day!!
