some Friday Inspo.

I'm having one of those overwhelming days. You know, the type of day where you call your mom and cry, and then try and get something productive done. ugh.... So, I'm sitting here, trying to get my mind off of the current issues, and to think of something positive. Time to take a deep breathe and remind myself that's it's Friday. That's when I decided that nice photos are always good. You can't go wrong with pretty photos.

I found my baskets at Crate and Barrel that I wanted!! I have them filled with my vintage fabric and doille collection. and while Alaina and I were out thirfting awhile back, I came across 3 bolts of vintage fridge. how divine!! but this teal/green combo is my absolute fav!

I made these Mother's Day cards for our mommy employees at the salon. The amazing part is, I made them entirely from stuff I already had! Those are the best projects, the ones where all of the "shopping" takes place in your craft room. :)

Happy Mother's Day to all of my blog friends!!

eta: The white butterflies are all hand cut from textured cardstock. I made a stencil for the large butterflies on this page from last year. Which is why I insist on saving everything.... you never know when you'll be able to use something again!!

Hope you have a better day tomorrow. It's good to have a Mom to talk with isn't it? The cards are lovely and your blog is eye candy. Have a blessed day.

I was wondering how you made those butterflies? Is it a die or from a electronic cutter? I love them so!
