Just Us Three Design - 0% Shabby 100% Chic


Now typically I'm more of a modernish style designer...well who am I kidding maybe eclectic is a better term. I do a lot of different styles...usually whatever the clients wants. But one thing is sure I don't stop until they are 100% happy. Well this little design idea floated into my head and so I finally got "pen to paper" and got it done. But I would say Shabby Chic isn't really my main look...but I still think this turned out cute. What do you think? A little something sweet for you Sunday. Enjoy!

STAY and PRAY - Ephesians 6:18 NLT


Today I read a story that I couldn't believe. A tragedy. When I hear such stories I'm at a loss of words...the only three are, "I can't imagine!" that come to mind...and that's because I simply can't. I don't know what it would be like to lose family in such a horrible way. I can't imagine my heart crumbling into a thousand pieces. The Stay Family is in my heart and prayers. Please download and share. I only ask that you give to the family's Go Fund Me HERE. I need no credit for this design take...share...borrow...steal...it's meant for just that. I'm happy to email files or do whatever I can to help. It's a small miracle that my entire family was napping at once while I put this together! Prayers to Cassidy Stay + the Stay Family + the Stay Friends + the Stay supporters!


How I heard about the story via @natalienorton on Insta:


Today, I'm asking you to open your hearts as wide as the ocean is deep...to make space for a sweet angel who desperately needs our help. // Imagine being 15 years old, and suddenly alone in the world. You can't? Neither can I. Cassidy Strong needs our help. Aside from the financial burden of managing 6 funerals (her parents and 4 siblings) and all the financial complexities of moving forward without her parents, this beautiful child of God simply needs to know that she is LOVED— that there is still beauty and goodness in this world that has recently been so horribly, horribly cruel to her. Please donate if you are able. I have changed the link in my Instagram profile to include the donation link for sweet Cassidy Strong. It will remain in my profile through the weekend. I'm asking YOU to PLEASE do the same. Repost this image, temporarily change the URL in your profile and petition your friends and followers to do the same. Spread the word. This tender soul needs our love, our prayers and to know that she is not alone. . . #weloveyoucassidy Every one of our prayers is yours.


18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

{Bitty Baby Party - American Girl - House Party}


A while back I hosted an American Girl + Bitty Baby Playdate for Reegan and her little gal pals. We had an amazing time! We snacked and crafted and played and took pictures and had some girl time...it sounds like a perfect time to me no matter the age.




In additional to some amazing guests we had some STELLAR swag provided for this special event. Tutus were a must for this doll tea party. Our favorite tutu shop Truly Unique Baby Gifts was our go to for the event! I was so happy with the all pink combo that she made us for this event. Don't mind the crafting mess...they were clearly having an AWESOME time! :)






What girly event and play date would be complete without confetti and LOTS of it!? We used The Confetti Bar for our event. Can we talk about how AMAZING these confetti creations are?! Confetti mixalogist Jess will make your confetti dream come true! She has an online shop that you will just drool over...she even can customize confetti for your event + company + brand + etc. 



Ariel of Until Next Time Notes  provided us with some amazing paper goods. Hello cute banner and paper straws!!!!! The lil gals couldn't get enough of all the pink pretties that day!



I totally had to purchase some doll size cups and plates for the event. I.Just.Can't! With this cuteness! And once I knew we were having this day for the girls I HAD to have paper dolls and coloring books customized and ready! Super messy activities but oh so worth it!



We just had a lovely day! I want to do this again very soon! What do you think of our American Girl Bitty Baby Playdate?!


Bitty Baby Doll and Favor bags provided by American Doll and House Party but my opinions are my own and I'm CRAZY for this Product/Brand/Company! Thank you to all the other vendors (linked) that provided items for this event. It was one these angels won't forget any time soon!
