so tasty

lemon drop studio was really lacking something until a week or so ago. It was lacking something that even my new shop Lemon Kissed already had. How did I go so long without a MUSTACHE PRINT in my shop?! How'd you guys let me get away with that!? I partially blame you. Well, I don't. It's my fault. But the point is... mustaches are here, and more are on the way.

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!

xoxo,
Shauna

The Stache.

Mustache oh mustache,
you are so cute on my neck
majestic and bold

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.

Pardon the terrible self-portrait early morning picture - but I was too excited to wait.Italic

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.

Jolie.

Lemon Kissed has made another necklace, and it's another one that I want to keep.


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!

lemon drop studio changes!

Summer is over. At least it feels like it. It's the Tuesday after our long Labor Day Weekend and it's pouring down rain here in the suburbs of Portland. The air smells lovely and clean, and change is in the air. We are coming upon my favorite season - Autumn. I love the cool, crisp, clear days that fall brings, and the oranges, greens and browns that fill my closet. I'm ready to put the swimsuits and capris in storage and pull out the sweaters, tall socks and the hot chocolate mix. It's time to quit painting the toes hot pink and find the crimson reds and browns.

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.

Hugs,
Shauna

lemon drop studio news

My dear, lovely lemons!

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!!

smooches,
Shauna

ready for fall!


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!
Shauna

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!
