Mums been on my case to try it out so when I saw that Michael Miller had teamed up with Spoonflower I decided I might as well try and enter the contest. Unfortunately I didn't get chosen to be in the top 75 but I thought I would share my design with you because it was a really fun process. I titled it 'A Day at the Zoo' it includes 23 different animals that are commonly found at the zoo. The fun part for me was I wanted all of the animals to be drawn to scale it was interesting to see how all of them measured to each other since penguins and giraffes don't often hang out together...
here to check it out. We are planning on printing it up and making something- just need to figure out what.
I'll probably take the rest of the week off. I have a sinus infection and am pretty useless at the moment!
** I just realized Kara made it to the 75 which is SO awesome! Go check it out and vote!

I made my first one back in January... who knew it would take this long to make another! This could seriously be addictive if only I had the time to be addicted!

Remember this wedding invite? Well they didn't have time to use my graphic for the invites but they did end up using it at the wedding. We had it printed onto an 18"x 24" canvas
Which they had all of the guests sign

I had an awesome birthday! Uber took the day off and we 'slept in' - not really Micah wanted to be up! So we loaded up the truck

Micah's room has a new addition- an awesome Zebra stained glass piece that my Dad made (and I am pretty sure is his original design) before I was born they've been lugging it around for years all packed up so I had them pull it out of the attic and Uber built it a frame and then Dad stained it for me.

Saturday we headed up to Amelia Island to check out Fort Clinch. We've lived here 5 1/2 years and visited this area quite a bit and never new it existed until just recently- which is so weird! We lucked out as they were having their living history day (we had no idea when we went and I guess it only happens twice a year). It was fun but already getting to be rather hot so I can't imagine visiting this place in the summer!

This wine rack has bugged me since we moved in. Yes I selected for it to be there (though honestly I have no idea why) but I never expected it to be all awkwardly up high like that and 5 years into living with it, it's become clear that it is completely useless we usually put a bunch of San Pellegrino up there for decoration and it all just collects dust and is a total pain to clean. Yesterday when I was deep cleaning the kitchen I realized that the wine rack is just held in with little finishing nails... awesome!
So I talked to Uber about it and asked him to rip it out. But when I got up this morning I realized... who needs him! So I did it myself and I LOVE it! I have always wanted a book shelf in the kitchen and have been trying to figure out ways to put one in ... duh! I would still like to do something with the awkward space below the cabinet but for now I am extremely happy with this improvement.
P.S. Why can't I decide on a fabric and make myself a kitchen aide cover- so irritating!

I've been trying to add a little more pattern to our living room so I whipped up this little lumbar pillow
The fabric is from Anna Maria Horner's Little Folks line.
These two are so funny. I am going to be in so much trouble soon!
