Hello Again!

Monday, September 12th, 2011

Thank You by Drew Melton of The Phraseology Project

Hello again friends! Gosh, it feels like it’s been forever! Only three months away from blogland and I felt myself going a little crazy. I’m happy to report that I am finally feeling much better. I still struggle with some pain from time-to-time but overall I am encoraged by my progress.

I want to say a big thanks to all that sent me notes and good wishes. I can’t tell you how nice it was knowing I had so many people caring for me and thinking positive thoughts. I think it helped to take some time off from blogging and realy focus on getting better. Thank you agian for your support and patience.

I’ve decided to return to blogging but on more of a limited basis so as not to over do it. I’ll be posting once a week from now on and I am thrilled to be getting back into the swing of things! I’ll continue to share my favorite design finds along with personal projects I’ve put together. I’m so excited to be back and I can’t wait to get started! Check back later today for a project I just finished at work, I can’t wait to share it with you!

Be Back Soon!

My little Tula being adorable and keeping me company!

I wanted to pop in again and apologize for my erratic and unpredictable posting lately. My back issues have not improved much and and after weeks of physical therapy and countless doctor appointments I was able to meet with a specialist. Unfortunately, my herniated disk is quite sever and a portion even managed to detach itself and could potentially cause even more nerve damage.

With the recommendation from my physical therapist, specialist and surgeons I am having surgery to alleviate the pain and remove the herniation. I go in for surgery this morning and am actually looking forward to waking up and feeling pain free! It’s been over six months since this all began so I am thrilled to be on the mend soon.

From what I understand, the surgery is quite common and the recovery is pretty quick. I’m not sure what to expect in the next week or so but wanted to give you all a heads up if I disappear for a few days. I hope to be back here soon and looking forward to being on a more normal schedule.

Thanks again to all of you for your support and understanding. My best to you all and see you soon! xoxo


April Sponsor Thanks!

Friday, April 8th, 2011

Wow, this year is going by quickly, it’s hard to believe it’s already April! On that note, I’d like to welcome our newest sponsor, Pinky Swear Designs, to Twig & Thistle!

Pinky Swear Designs began when Lauren and Alina both realized they couldn’t find personalized jewelry that they loved. Each have design backgrounds and have loved using their combined experiences and talents to make something really personal and special for their customers. Every single piece they make is “from scratch” and they put a lot of love and thought into the pieces.

I love the charming handcrafted quality to each of their pieces and any of them would make for a perfect mother’s day gift! Please take a moment to check out what they have to offer as well as the rest of our sponsors. For more Pinky Swear, check out their blog too!


Back in a bit!

Sweet Letterpress Cards from Duet Letterpress

Hi lovelies! I had such a nice relaxing vacation and hopefully you’re all enjoying the summer as well. I’m excited to get back into the swing of things but before I do I wanted to give a big, BIG thanks to my friend Tara Lee for stepping in last week while I was away.

She did a tremendous job guest posting and I’d say she’s got a future in blogging if she so chooses! I can’t get over the 1st Birthday Party that she created for Taylor and the Lost in ffffound board she put together was stunning! Also check out her post on the new J. Crew Bridal collection if you missed it.

Thanks again Tara! Kisses xoxo
