Shower that baby with Eyelet Outlet Love!!

I have had several invites to baby showers recently.
Eyelet Outlet has so many great brads...that you can easily create a card that coordinates with the baby's gender, the theme of the nursery, or your gift!

Here...a baby boy card!

So many boy brads!!

And tying it all together...is a bit of washi tape in the background!

The nursery of this little one will be filled with beach colors and themes.
That is easy peasy with Tropical Fish brads, lots of washi tape in different widths..and 
pearl bling!

This weekend will be the annual

Instagram Hop with Pink & Main!!

Eyelet Outlet has partnered up with Pink and Main for an amazing hop on Instagram. Head on over to see inspiring creativity, follow our designers and you'll be entered to win one of two $25 gift certificates! Here I have used Pink & Main's Snow Globe set. It's the perfect match with Eyelet Outlet brads! If you love washi, Eyelet Outlet is #1 with washi. I used masculine styled tape for this "out of doors" style...coupled with enamels! 


My #1 Guy...

If you knew my Dad, you would know why he was blessed with four daughters...
to raise and to set the standard and example of how a man should treat a woman.

I have countless of examples that he showed...in deed...always action.
He doesn't speak a whole, whole lot. 
(But how could you when you had so many girls chattering about!)

Father's Day is just around the corner...but I think this will have to be sent much earlier due to something that happened just this morning.

I was telling my co workers how my parents celebrate their anniversary monthly.
True story.  Growing up, I didn't realize that anniversaries were all that special b/c my parents always had one. (It took me years to realize that most people do not do this..and a yearly anniversary is a big deal!)   And they always knew the number of months. 
I bragged that I could call my mom RIGHT then and she'd know.
Well, she didn't answer the phone, so I called my dad to prove my point.

He answered and we said our hellos. 
Then I asked him, "How many months have you been married?
Without a hesitation, he replied "521...this month it will be 522."

(And, my mom did skype me the answer to the question...522 This month...46 years!)

My co workers were impressed and want to meet  my dad!  (and mom)

The bar is high.  My dad is a mustached, straight as an arrow, worker bee, with so much energy and no complaints.  I love him...and his ever present example.

This stamp comes from The Project Bin's Classic Man set.
A new set released this spring! 
Embellishments can be found at Eyelet Outlet.  They have all sorts of unique, individualized brads and wonderful washi tape of all widths and styles and textures!
