Look!! A lovely customer's sister was lucky enough to get a Stache necklace made by Lemon Kissed for the holidays - and doesn't she make it look fun and amazing!? SEEEEEE, facial hair on ladies CAN be incredibly cute!! I told you so.
Thanks for sending me the picture, Adriane, and thanks to Natalie for wearing it so well! I hope you enjoy it!
I just had to share my two newest additions to my home - and both from Etsy, of course.
I have been trying to decorate my room for forever - it's always the last on the to-do list, and I wanted something I loved, not just something I liked. Finally, I got this print, On Guard, that I had been swooning over, from Jaimee at Modern Classics Paper and knew right away that I wanted a special frame for it.
I just recently found this frame, in an 8 inch by 8 inch square size, at DA Custom Frames, and I couldn't be more pleased. The frame is the perfect color, and is made so well. I love supporting handmade.
Just had to share these two Etsy shops with you. It would feel wrong keeping it a secret, and I can't handle guilt. Sharing is too much fun!
The holidays are fast approaching. I'm assuming that all of you know this already. I felt panicky in September when standing in line at the craft store, watching them put out the Christmas decorations - I thought that was TOO soon. But now, now it's time to get the holiday preparations done.
Lemon Kissed is ready to help you get some holiday shopping done, and we're ready to help you save some money at the same time. (Yes, you're totally welcome. No problem. You're worth it!).
Our HOLIDAY SALE will run from THIS Friday (tomorrow) November 19th and will end on December 1st.
We are offering a Buy 1, Get another for 50% off!! (of equal or lesser value). There are no limits. So buy 4 items and get 50% off 2 of them. And shipping is still free. You can't beat that with a stick!!
(Your refund will come after payment, via PayPal, or contact me via email or convo and we'll get you all set up!)
Come over to Lemon Kissed, see what is new, and get your holiday shopping done. And don't forget to get yourself a little something, too! You deserve it. You do.
One lucky reader is going to win Lemon Kissed's The Stache Necklace !! Lucky! And what perfect timing for Movember!!
Up for grabs: Lemon Kissed's The Stache necklace.
This is perfect to keep for yourself or give as a gift. If you do give it as a gift, be warned, the recipient will expect every other present you give them in the future to be just as awesome. There's always a price for giving someone the coolest present they've ever received.
The necklace will make you cooler than the rest, but subtly, so you don't hurt feelings, because that's not nice.

Want to get free money just for referring customers to Lemon Kissed?
Well, you can!
For every customer you refer to Lemon Kissed, you will receive $5 off your next purchase with Lemon Kissed. You can save those credits up or use them as you get them - but either way, I want to thank you for spreading the word about Lemon Kissed.
How does it work!?
When you refer a friend or family member, and they make a purchase from my Lemon Kissed Etsy Shop, have them leave YOUR name in the notes to seller box, found during the check-out process. I will log your name in my records, and also, will let you know that you have a credit, if you wish to be informed. These credits don't expire, and can be combined, or used alone.
The more customers you refer, the more $$ you get to spend with Lemon Kissed!
Say you refer 3 friends (who all make purchases, and list your name as the referrer), you then have $15 to spend in the shop!
How do you redeem your Referral Credits?
When you're ready to use your credits in the shop, or if you want to check your credit balance, simply email me through Etsy, or via email (LemonKissed at gmail dot com), and I can either set up a special listing for you, or you go ahead and shop, and I'll issue a refund via PayPal. Your choice!
Again, thank you so much for referring friends, family, enemies, moms and more to Lemon Kissed. I sure do appreciate ya!!
Lovely shops and items, from left to right:
1. 'barefoot and pregnant' hand-printed linen cotton tea towel. from wildrosesgrow. $14.
What isn't there to love about this?! I'm so grateful I'm no longer barefoot and pregnant. Well, at least not the pregnant part. This towel is brilliant. The whole shop - amazing.
2. designer cupcake liners (50) in purple and white polka dots. from mysweetwhimsy. $4.25.
I am so in love with purple lately - and I see it everywhere I turn! And combine my new love of purple with my new love of baking - BAM! - these cupcake liners are perfectly perfect.
3. women's hostess apron PDF pattern. from everydaychic. $8.
I love half aprons. I could never have enough. The only thing, I always make my mom sew them for me... until now! I think it's time to be a big girl and buy a pattern and make some aprons, for me and for friends!
Hope you love the selections today, I know I do! And remember: GO DUCKS!!
Yesterday I dropped by my favorite coffee shop, Insomnia Coffee Company, which is EVER SO CONVENIENTLY located across the street from my home. Literally. (This is the same place that makes the chai tea latte that made me cry it was so good - seriously). They are such a great place - yummy, friendly and fun, and their location by my home is decorated with mustaches --- so I had to be a friendly neighbor and drop off a mustache print for them.
Here it is:
And the fun thing... you guys can have a mustache print, too. You get to choose your colors and your text, and the font, if you want. And remember, it's a printable now, so you choose the size and you may print as many as you'd like. Make them into gifts for the holidays like mugs, note cards and prints. We all know a mustache lover or two, right!?
Currently the mustache print resides in the FEATURED PRINT section of the shop - which means it's $10 rather than $15. This won't last long!
Okay, that's it for me this morning. I'm taking advantage of this sunny Thursday and packing my 4 year old and my 7 month old and my sister-in-law in the car and we're going to the beach! Enjoy your Thursday and I'll see you guys tomorrow!
I love how simple and lovely it is. The blue is perfect. And I know it would just look oh-so-amazing around my precious neck!
Check out the rest of Eclectic Whatnot's Etsy Shop - it's full of wonderful camera strap covers. I love so many of them, and I know you will, too!
Just wanted to show off how cute my friend Marie is in the Piper earrings in AQUA.
Currently the aqua is sold-out in Lemon Kissed's shop, but more will be listed soon. To tide you over until the aqua arrive, eggplant purple and white are still available in the Piper style.
Lovely shops and items, from left to right:
1. pure organic mineral eye powder in slate. from . From orglamix. $4.99.
Isn't the color just amazing?! and you'd better be putting make up on your pretty face that's organic!! I can't wait to shop with orglamix!
2. extra moisturizing face lotion. From shopredleaf. $10.00.
I have this and use it every day in the orange sherbet scent. I swear by this moisturizer!!
3. 'grace' natural soy candle in travel tin - 8 oz size. From BarefootBathandBody. $9.00.
This sounds heavenly! I can't wait to try the candles from Barefoot Bath and Body! I already know I love the solid perfumes.
We have one more pair of Callie Earrings left - perfect with any outfit, and perfect for fall.
We'd LOVE to see pictures of our customers wearing their jewelry! If you have pictures you want to share, please email them to me at LemonKissed@gmail.com or you can upload them on our facebook fan page!!

okay, so I'm not awesome at writing haikus, but it's honorable to at least try, right?!
You know what IS awesome? Lemon Kissed's newest necklace: The Stache.
Don't even pretend like you don't want one on your neck. Hair on your chest has never looked so hot. I swear.
Details: The necklace is a cute acrylic mustache (available in white or black), and is on an 18 inch sterling silver necklace. As always, it comes in a kraft jewelry gift box, all packaged up cute, ready to give to yourself, or to someone else.
This is Jolie. It is a moss green leather cord necklace with clasp closure, and a wooden filigree tree pendant - perfect for the autumn season that is quickly approaching. Super light-weight and casual, this necklace will complete any outfit!
I will be listing a few more Jolie necklaces in the shop very soon - with different leather cord colors, like black, cerulean blue and buckskin. I can't wait to share them with you!
Surely I can't be alone in craving changes, adjustments, reorganization and new routines at this time, right?
lemon drop studio has done some changing in our Etsy shop. Have you noticed?
lemon drop studio is now a shop full of printable prints and invitations. $15 buys you any customized print, in any size, and it's yours to print as many times as you would like. My favorite part about this change is that it gives me more time to create new prints and invites, AND my customers can still make the prints completely theirs by choosing the fonts, colors and more. I'm excited about it. Are you?
Also, each week lemon drop studio is going to have a different FEATURED PRINT, and for that week, it's only $10. You can still customize it and everything, it's just a way of saying THANK YOU for being such wonderful bloggy and Etsy pals.
I hope this blog post finds all of you doing great, and hoping that you, too, are ready for Autumn.

Good evening, beauties. I hope this post finds you doing well. You're looking as awesome and beautiful as always.
lemon drop studio is making some changes. This wasn't an easy decision, but for the time being, it's best for me and my family. As of tonight, I am taking a break from custom silhouettes. Doing this will free up more time to create more printables for lemon drop studio as well as create more jewelry for Lemon Kissed, and most importantly, it gives me more time to spend with my sweet family.
I have LOVED doing custom silhouettes - they were always my favorite, but I haven't found a way to get more time out of the day, and something had to give. I want to thank all of my custom silhouette clients - I feel so honored to have had the chance to create amazing keepsakes for all of you!
Still interested in silhouettes and not sure where to go!? I have an answer! Jaimee at Bushel and Peck Paper has given me the green-light to refer clients to her for their custom silhouette needs... and guess what?! She's so super nice and wonderful and talented, so you'll love her just as much as you adore me, maybe even more!! You can go take a look at all Jaimee and Bushel and Peck Paper has to offer on Etsy here!
Stay tuned for other fun announcements about lemon drop studio - I'm excited to share them with you!!
Here are our newest designs:
You can see all of lemon drop studio's printable invitations and announcements here.
Lemon Kissed has been thinking AUTUMN a lot lately, and I think it is reflected in the latest pieces that I've made. I am really loving the silver plated leaf charm right now - if you couldn't tell!
The top picture is Devin. A bracelet (3 separate strands), with magnetic closures, and a leaf charm adorning one of the strands. I like the versatility of this one - you can wear a single strand, double up, or wear all three for a nice, fun, bold statement! With all the fun colors, it is sure to match whatever you're wearing.
The middle picture shows my Callie dangle earrings. I love these! I think I am definitely making me a pair of my own soon. (This is happening quite frequently with what I've been creating!). Simple enough to wear everyday, but pretty and bold enough to be your statement piece.
The last picture is my Sam bracelet. She's already been sold (to Trask's cousin Sam!!), but I just had to share the pairing of my turquoise beads and the lighter green round beads, and of course, my leaf charm. LOVE this one, too!
Be on the lookout for new goodies coming to Lemon Kissed very soon! I'm going to be working on braided fabric bracelets and necklaces. You won't want to miss them - the perfect price point for gifts for friends, teachers, party favors. stocking stuffers or to buy a bunch for yourself!
Talk soon and Happy Thursday!
PS: Oh! and we're not the only ones ready for fall! Check out this treasury of all the autumn goodies - including our Callie dangle earrings!
lemon drop studio is getting ready for Halloween - are you?
We just designed and listed our first Halloween party invitation printable - and you can see it in the shop now!!
Our printables are easy! Just purchase the design you want, and email me your color and text choices and your party specifics and I'll send you a proof of your invite. Once we have it finalized and just perfect, I email you a high-resolution file and you can print wherever you want! Easy peasy!!
Be on the lookout for more printables coming to our shop - lots more!! And if there's a design or occasion you want to see that we haven't done, feel free to drop us a line!!
Have a happy weekend~

Hugs and Happy Friday Wishes,
Lemon Kissed just finished up a lovely order for a beautiful soon-to-be bride and and all of her bridesmaids. She chose the Lotus post earrings, all in coral, and I can't wait to ship all of the earrings to her! I feel so lucky that I got the chance to be involved in a small way on her big day!! Congratulations, Allison!

I just listed these Piper earrings in a fun, lacy metal filigree in eggplant purple and they sold within minutes (thanks, Macey!). I will have more of them (in a few color choices like silver, eggplant and mustard) soon!
These are the Rachel dangle, and they are still available in the shop - I have two pair. They are an awesome sage green, with the perfect patina, making them look super relaxed and casual, and are perfect for summer and fall!
I hope everyone is having a happy August. I am trying to savor the last of summer, but am really looking forward to the weather, color and routine that autumn brings!!
Stay happy and I'll blog more soon!
See you all on Monday when I'm back from Suttle Lake.
Both shops lemon drop studio and Lemon Kissed are going to be closed Thursday, August 5th through mid-day Monday, August 9th.
I will be spending time with my wonderful family at Suttle Lake in central Oregon - one of my most favorite places, ever. I am hoping that this trip will help me relax and have fun, and to take my mind off the day-to-day, while inspiring new lines for each shop.
Hugs and High Fives!
I wanted to keep it. I still do. BUT I know that my sweet Carsten will think it's his for the tugging, chewing and pulling, so it is up in the shop, ready to go to a lovely home, free from the hands of a wild, crazy-eyed 5 month old baby!
Here's her info:
Sadie. A Spiral Shell and Leather Cord with clasp closure necklace.
The Sadie necklace is laid back, simple and beautiful, just like me. I mean, just like you.
Leather cord measures 18 inches in length and the spiral shell is nearly 2 inches.
Shipping is ALWAYS free, because you're so rad. And your necklace will come in a kraft jewelry box, tied with a pretty piece of fabric or ribbon, ready to give as a gift or keep for yourself.
The Bella dangle earrings are pretty fun - they are made from dyed volcanic lava (pumice) and the colors and texture are just amazing!
I am having a lot of fun with Lemon Kissed, and am in the process of getting ready to start necklaces, too. Think clusters of awesome goodness - and then you'll have the same vision in your head as I do.
Just got my 2 Tiny Tags necklace in the mail from StephieMc and I'm in Heaven!
What I love most about this necklace is that it's not super frilly or fancy. It's simple, it's fun, and it has Carsten and Taylor on the tags. I love the hammered edges on the tags and just the cleanliness of the design. I opened up the envelope, took note of the cute packaging, and then put the necklace on my neck right away. So far Carsten hasn't yanked at it at all - he saves his yanking for my hair and my neck skin!
I'm not a new customer to StephieMc Designs, and this won't be my last order. Each and every time I am more than delighted by my purchase - and Stephanie is so super sweet, too! Make sure you go and check out her Etsy shop when you can. (Like right now!).
Have a happy weekend!
Lemon Kissed is excited to introduce these little ladies, starting from the top left and heading clockwise:
2. Bella in sage
3. and Karlie in jade
4. Bella in ocean blue
Do you have tons of fabric scraps just laying around? Don't throw them out! Turn your fabric scraps into cute packaging - like Lemon Kissed does!!
I've always LOVED fabrics, and have always searched and searched for reasons to buy brilliant patterns and designs, but really lack sewing skills. And space to sew. However, that does not stop me from hoarding away fat quarters from wonderful designers like Amy Butler and Michael Miller. Instead, I've decided that fabric makes the perfect ribbon to package my jewelry boxes!
I love the way the fabric looks tied around the kraft jewelry box. It looks great, and is using pieces of material that some people would just throw away!! Plus, fabric just makes the best bows - much easier for me than using ribbon!
The next gift you need to wrap, save the Earth and some money and just look through your fabric! You can even go the extra mile and wrap your gift using a paper bag from the grocery store!! The earth will thank you!
This is our second free printable - and it's one that I think a lot of ladies will love! Enjoy the second printable from lemon drop studio: I Heart Shoes.
Click on the image to make it bigger, save it to your desktop and then print and enjoy.
Enjoy and if I get enough feedback, I'll keep them coming!!
They are wooden, so they are super lightweight. I love how natural and simple they look - beautiful.
I will try to get a picture of me in mine up soon, too, for a size reference, but that means I should wash my hair, huh?! What do you guys think?!
From top left, going clockwise, here are the newest colors at Lemon Kissed.
1. Purple Perfection Mini Rose Earrings
2. Glamorous Grey Lotus Earrings
3. Oh So Cute Orange Mini Rose Earrings
4. Tempting Teal Lotus Earrings
Today I wanted to introduce you to Me and Matilda - where they specialize in custom neckties, bow ties and wedding accessories - and believe me, they are all cuuuuuute!
Being a mama to two adorable boys, I can't wait to put the boys in little neck ties and taking their pictures - I'm thinking hipster, nerd, prep all mixed into one!
I hope you guys love this shop as much as I do!!
