{love this shop!} StephieMc Designs

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!).

Thanks Steph!!!

Have a happy weekend!

Lemon Kissed: new earrings in the shop!

Lemon Kissed is excited to introduce these little ladies, starting from the top left and heading clockwise:

1. Molly

2. Bella in sage

3. and Karlie in jade

4. Bella in ocean blue


fun, cute, green packaging

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!

Lemon Kissed: new earrings in the shop!

Just spent the afternoon and evening taking pictures of our newest earrings for Lemon Kissed.

We've added Mini Chrysanthemums and Mini Roses to our inventory, in fun and lovely colors like raspberry, turquoise, ivory and blue skies, just to name a few.

Buy any pair for $12 and get each pair after that for $10 each! And remember, because you're so incredibly good-looking, shipping is free! Always!


new print!!

I just listed one of lemon drop studio's newest prints on Etsy today and wanted to share it with all of you. Introducing: I Carry Your Heart.

This print is inspired the beautiful poem by e.e. cummings, entitled I Carry Your Heart - a poem that I shamefully didn't know about until I read the book In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner. After reading the book, I looked up a bunch of e.e. cummings' poems and fell in love.

The I Carry Your Heart print is simple on purpose, because the words can mean so much, there's no need to get all fancy about things. I see this print hanging in a child's room, especially, or given to a couple as a wedding or anniversary gift.

True to lemon drop studio form, this new print is customizable. You can choose the background, text and heart colors from our color palette. They will be available in 3 sizes, 8x10, 5x7 and 4x6.

I hope you guys like the new print as much as I do! I can't wait to hang one up on my wall!


PS: The whole poem can be viewed here.


Lotus Earrings by Lemon Kissed

A sweet friend Robyn (hi Robyn!!) mentioned that I needed to show a picture of someone wearing the earrings that are in the shop so people can see what they look like when worn, size, etc.

I didn't have a cute person with pierced ears at my disposal, so I made my husband take a picture of me wearing my slate blue lotus earrings. So, my friends, this is what they look like.

Rest assured you are always getting NEW, never worn earrings, I just wanted to include an example of me wearing my own. No ear cooties included with earring sales, just great earrings and free shipping!

To see what Lemon Kissed has for you, go take a peek!


Lemon Kissed: open now!

Hi Friends!

I hope that you all had a lovely and safe 4th of July weekend, and that you're ready to start the week. And I also hope you're fully prepared for the cuteness you are about to encounter!!

Lemon Kissed, lemon drop studio's sister shop, is up and running! (With a huge THANK YOU to Elizabeth from Polka Dot Skies for being my first sale!)

Currently Lemon Kissed is stocked with colorful lotus flower post earrings ranging in colors from Sunshine Yellow to Pretty Plum. New styles should be coming soon! (I have two sick boys here to love on and take care of... but when nap time comes, I'll be making more goodies for your ears!)

The lotus flower earrings are $12, and there's ALWAYS free shipping. Always. And if you buy multiple pairs of the lotus flower earrings, each additional pair is only $10.

There's my little shop update. Now it's back to laundry and the kidlets and this beautiful Tuesday morning!

Have a great week!
