very exciting news

So a few weeks ago Taylor and I met Summer at the neatest place in downtown Hillsboro for lunch and to chat... and I just fell in love! We went to Styledbaby Boutique, Cafe + Playhouse (on East Main Street, near Subway) and it is just the coolest place ever, and the owner is so wonderful... so, so fun! Anyway, I spoke with her about maybe bringing in some of lemon drop studio's fresh-squeezed gifts and we set up an appointment.

My meeting was last Wednesday and it went great! I now am a vendor for Styledbaby and am blessed to have my crayons and hair ties in her lovely boutique now. I am also going to do my silhouettes (custom and stock), frames and some other fun goodies. If anyone is in the neighborhood - you have to go in and check out her boutique. Or come visit me and I'll take you there myself! Really, it's such a blessing to have met Delia and I just know her boutique is going to be such an asset to the community and to families all around. Go check her out!!


more hope cards

And here are a few more little beauties... now back to the craft table.

I hope everyone is enjoying their Saturday! It's going to be a hot one here again. It was 104* yesterday. That's hot for me! I am a 65*-75*-type gal!

a few hope cards...

I am still in the process of photographing and making 'hope' cards, but here are some that I have finished so far. I just got done posting them on etsy this morning. Check back later for more updates, and for individual cards if a set of cards just isn't your thing! I can be contacted for larger sets if you are interested.


to a great cause

My dear and sweet friend Skye Weadick will be running the San Francisco Marathon in October and is running with a great team to help raise money for The Leukemia + Lymphoma Society in honor of one of her teammates, Amy Bartlett, a cancer survivor who chose hope. You can read her story here.

To help raise funds and do my part, because Lord knows I cannot run, I will be creating a new line of 'hope' cards to help Skye raise funds for this wonderful cause. I am donating 50% of the proceeds that the hope cards bring in to Skye's fundraising efforts. Please stay tuned within the next few days to check them out. I will be selling them individually or in sets from my blog or on my etsy site.

I would love to see this fundraising campaign succeed - so please help me spread the word! If you would like to contribute in other ways, please contact me to find out how!

Again, check back in a few days to see the new hope line!
