A Touch of Mint

Good day! Today's post is a long time coming.. I first mentioned collecting these precious little brass candlesticks in November and since then I have collected enough and finally painted them with "a touch of mint"! I absolutely love how they turned out and I look forward to changing them up if I ever feel the need to. With a mint Anthropologie pillow and a few more succulents our living room is a bit brighter and more colorful. Check it out for yourself! 

I used a small paintbrush and a small sample size of  Sea Lilly by Vaspar. Total project with paint, brush and candlesticks = $19

A Berry Happy Birthday!

Happy Wednesday Friends! So in life and in business it's important to make goals. I pretty much make a different goal everday, even if it's just as trivial as making it to the gym or drinking 3 bottles of water before lunch. Goals help us make our lives more meaningful and encouraging yourself is key to happiness. I encourge myself as much as I can and today more than most. If you don't know I really really really love birthdays. So on my own birthday I build it up for months and months and get super excited. How am I spending it this year? HR trainings. How's my twin spending it? At Sea World with my parents. Adult life is really the worst! I wish him the very best of days even though we have to share it every year :)

So my list of goals for this year is long but a small one I made a few months back was to hit 200 etsy sales by my big day. I am currently at 198 as of this morning and so excited to hopefully reach this goal today! It's these little steps as a small business owner that are so important to help keep momentum going.

So just for my friends here, and to continue my post from Friday, I have created a special coupon for today! With coupon code ABERRYBIRTHDAY you can get 50% off any print in the shop through May 31st. A very happy birthday indeed!

Birthday Wishes

Calling all couponers! Or people that just like free stuff. If you know me at all you know that I pretty much don't buy anything full price and that Goodwill gets more of my money than they probably should - I was raised to know a bargain. So with my birthday a few days away I thought I would share some of my favorite birthday free-bees that I am taking advantage of this month!

1. Kendra Scott - 50% off any one item in store. 

This is one I took advantage of! Since I don't live any where near a Kendra Scott store I just called and made the order over to phone... arrived next day :)

2. Starbucks - Any Free Drink or Food Item 

I'm going for on birthday morning!

3. La Madeline  - Free Pastry 

Using this one for a birthday lunch treat!

4. Genghis Grill - Free Bowl 

(used this one for date night!)

5. Chick-fil-a - Free Cookie

6. Dairy Queen - BOGO Blizzards 

7. $10 at World Market 

Already used this one on a fabulous new chandelier for our dining room!

8. Fuddruckers - BOGO Burgers 

It'd down the road from our house and we like free food!

All you ACU alumni - this is a hot one! Don't all run to get your purple sweatshirts all at once.. 

So happy Friday and happy early birthday to the rest of you!

Wedding Feature Wednesday

I have had the pleasure of designing invitations, programs and save the dates for so many brides this past year. So I thought it would be a fun little project to feature these fabulous weddings and brides here and show the variety of fun wedding paper goods I've been able to work on! 

This week's feature is the fabulous wedding of Tori and Matt Sypert here in Lubbock. They got married on Texas Tech's campus in October and it was definitely a night to remember! ( & her dress is to die for! )
