Creative Hodge-Podge

Happy, happy Friday, friends! :)

This week has been filled with lots of super fun projects. I love it when "work" doesn't even feel like work because it's far too enjoyable to fall into that category!

I thought I'd share some of the things that have been going on around my coffee table [a.k.a. "craft studio"] and kitchen to help you get your weekend off to an inspired start.

I donated this sweet little chevron frame to a silent auction for Called To Adopt who, in their own words, are "an organization dedicated to supporting domestic adoption by providing grants and fund-raising assistance to families pursuing adoption". I'd say "love" is definitely a theme running throughout the organization & their mission!

I created these bright, sassy little stickers for a beachy bachelorette bash:

... And baked up a batch of starfish and seashell cookie favors to go along with the theme.

I also worked on a top-secret project that was uncharacteristically un-girly for me, and I have to say it was fun to switch things up a bit! I'll be sharing more about it once I have the go-ahead... but for now, you'll have to just keep guessing. :)

Having creative friends who let me bounce ideas off of them is so appreciated when I'm working on all these projects! In fact, two of my friends recently opened their very own Etsy shops. My super-talented friend Erica just opened the Etsy branch of her photography & calligraphy company, WP inks. She is pure magic with a fountain pen [not to mention with a camera]!

Another friend, Lely, just started up Lely's Creative Corner where she sells everything from pre-made baby gift baskets to hand-made Christmas wreaths.

If you have time, please drop by their shops or Facebook pages [WP inks, Lely's Creative Corner] and show them some love!

Do you have any creative things you've been working on, or have a shop [or know of a good one!] that I should feature?

Have a fabulous weekend!
