I Spy on Nantucket...

Do you remember the "I spy" game? Maybe you still play it with your little ones. We have been playing a lot of "I spy" when out to eat or waiting for something... anything to keep our four year old engaged! I realized as I was photographing the things that caught my eye on Nantucket I was playing the game with myself... I spy an anchor... I spy pink... So I decided to post some "I Spy" images that inspire me. The first up was the most difficult to find on island - but a favorite of mine - yellow!

Around Town

There are so many inspiring images to take in as I enjoy the Island of Nantucket.  All the gorgeous roses blooming everywhere are calling to me to design a new rose pattern!

Locks of Love - A post from Becky

Are you familiar with the organization, Locks of Love? I am so impressed - this is an excerpt from their website:

Locks of Love is a public non-profit organization that provides hairpieces to financially disadvantaged children in the United States and Canada under age 21 suffering from long-term medical hair loss from any diagnosis. 

I am also proud to say that my 14 year old daughter, Sarah, had 11" of her hair cut off and donated it to Locks of Love.  Sarah has always been blessed with beautiful red hair and a while ago we started talking about her doing this.  She has been growing it out (you need at least 10" to cut off) and then she wanted it long enough that it could be styled!  Last week she went to the Bobby Cooper Salon in Indianapolis where her hairdresser, McKenzie, chopped it off!  I have to admit, it made me weepy.  I have posted before and after pictures as well of some shots of the cut.

Sarah "pre-cut"

Cutting off the ponytails...

After the cut

The new cut which Sarah says she loves - I do know it takes her a lot less time to straighten in the morning!!

Sarah's donation to Locks of Love - she makes 
her mom & dad proud!

Unfortunately, highlighted hair (I've been highlighting mine since high school!) cannot be donated but colored hair can so if it so moves you, check out their website and see what Locks of Love is all about!

National Stationery Show Shout Out: 2 AND 3!

What was I thinking when I decided I would have time for 3 leisurely posts about the show?! I think it was because I was still riding the wave of such a fantastic show experience. I blogged about our neighbors at the National Stationery Show (NSS) and really wanted to follow through with a post about old friends / new friends.

A big thanks to all of our accounts that came to see us this year! Of course we are also grateful to the new Boatman Geller accounts that picked up our line at the show.
