June: It's a Wrap! I Spent the Whole Month Doing What?

I've decided I'd like to include monthly wrap-ups here on the bloggity-blog. You know something I can look at around the end of each month to prove to myself that I actually did something besides just pinning away all my dream houses I'll be moving into once Martha Stewart hires me as her replacement. In the mean time, this may give you a chance to catch up on some things you may have missed around here {because I know you have nothing better to do} AND it also gives me the opportunity to share bits & pieces from my other life such as all the paper goodness going on in my stationery shop.

So, incase you missed it:

*We started off the month with a little chemistry lesson.
*I cooked and we all lived to talk about it.
* Then I made some dog-gone fun wall art. No seriously, the pups gave it 4 paws up.
*I shared some freebies that you should hurry over & download now for all your 4th of July festivies.
*The new series, "Blogs I'm Lovin' & You Should Too" started.
*And I brought home some ugly, possibly infested chair to makeover.

June was also a busy, busy month for the Delightfully Noted shop!
Just in the knick of time I finished up these
royal blue & ivory wedding invites for some friends of ours who are tying the knot in July!

I knew when I first opened up shop that being an invitation designer I would be a small part of family's special moments & celebrations but I never anticipated the stories behind some of my custom orders. Sometimes touching, but also heartbreaking like this custom design for a little girl who was attacked by a dog and had to receive 80 stiches in her face!! What a brave, little cookie.

Then I also worked with one of my favorite customers on some personalized note cards for her to send the love of her life when he deploys for the FOURTH and FINAL time this September.
Their "thing" is cupcakes. While he's away overseas he always sends her her favorites from Georgetown Cupcakes so she wants to be able to send him something simple & sweet to remind him of home and the love he has awaiting him. Awww......ain't that some off the charts sweetness?
I'm thinking about adding these to the shop. Whatcha think?

So let's see what July has to bring us, shall we?

Here's to July! And the cursed Texas heat.... seriously! Why the heck must it feel like an OVEN outside!?!? Oh October, how I long for you...

Any other news, I like the wrap-up post. I missed some of your wonderful posts, and would never have seen them had it not been for the wrap up!
