A mere 7 months later

...and we're back in business. It's a small start for now as both Sarah and I are adjusting to our new lives. Sarah was married on September 11th just outside of St. Louis. It looked so beautiful with all her immaculate details.

Love this picture!

I say her wedding "looked" beautiful as I was 9 months pregnant with my now 12 wk old son, Sullivan, and could not travel for the wedding. I was sad to miss one of my best friend's weddings, but, was very happy to have given birth to this beautiful boy on September 25th.

What an amazing few months it has been for both of us! As we speak Sullivan is snoozing in his sling while I type. Ahhh, multitasking. So, given the above we took a 7 month, much deserved break. But, with the holidays approaching we received 2 custom orders; one for Gretchen in Chicago and 6 for the Mendelssohn Chorale in Rockford, IL (so close to my hometown!). I guess we're hitting it big in IL? Or, as our friend James, a native Illinoisian?, would say, "Ellinois".

Gretchen was inspired by the HBO series 'Boardwalk Empire' and wanted a 20's style headband for this New Year's Eve. We designed a gold and black "foreheadband" with vintage beaded appliques, black feathers and Swarovski Crystals. I can't wait to see it in action , via pictures of course. Eh hem, Gretchen... ;)


Our Rockford, IL orders were made with red ribbon bows and vintage gold buttons. The Mendelssohn Chorale, featuring Sarah's Aunt as their esteemed conductor, wore the holiday inspired headbands for Holiday Pops: The Many Moods of Christmas at the Coronado Performing Arts Center in downtown Rockford. See the pics here!

We wish we had better pictures but due to the holiday rush we put them right in the mail as soon as they were complete! We are available for more custom orders, anything you'd like we're sure we can make it happen...within reason of course. ;)

OK, back to the baby. I need to address the spit-up action that's happening all over me. Yeah, he's awake.
