Wolfie was eating a cookie and couldn’t be bothered to look up 🙂

Guys, I have to show you this blouse from Romwe! I wore it last week and I just think every girl needs a pretty white blouse! Plus, you know I love a good deal so it is fitting that this top is only $15! There are also other discounts happening on their site like 90% off some items and money back if you spend $49+.

My bag is vintage, similar here from Versatile Collective. It has a sku and the seller says it’s in very good condition. $577 – also read details and decide on your own if you think it’s a good, authentic buy.
My coat is from Via Spiga. Beckett got it for me a few Christmases ago and I still plan to wear it well into the future. The same brand has a slight variation on the coat again this year and I think it looks adorable. It’s also a little less puffy looking than mine, which may be appealing if you don’t like looking like a giant furball.


In other news, has anyone else been fighting off icky sicknesses this past week? These pictures have been a long time coming because I’ve barely gotten myself out of bed and to work this past week and this week. The only reason I’m able to do this post right now is because I randomly woke up at 3:30AM from a bad dream and then I was too sad/scared to fall asleep again right away.

Does anyone else have nightmares regularly? I do. And sometimes they’re so real feeling when I wake up that I can’t sleep again or I am angry at people in my life who were in the nightmare. It’s really weird. For instance, the whole week before Beckett and I got married, I dreamt that my mom purposefully stole the spotlight at my wedding. Needless to say I didn’t feel happy about how I was being treated in my nightmare, but I tried to hide my feelings from my mom because I knew the thoughts were irrational. Funny how that works.

Then last week Beckett and I both had really similar nightmares. I typed it all out in details for you to read, but then deleted it because I felt like I was sharing more than I wanted to with strangers.

Why did we both have similar nightmares? Sometimes I see that my dreams are linked to a show we’re watching or a book I’m reading, but that wasn’t the case this time. So I feel like we ate something weird and that’s why we both had similar scary dreams, but maybe it’s actually God’s way of telling us something.

Do you think dreams mean something?

a few of my favorite things…

Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming!
Don’t forget that it’s the season of giving because Christ gave to us. giftwrapping idea for custom phone design copy

Why I love a personalized gift:

  1. As an artist/crafty person my favorite gifts to give are ones that I enjoyed picking out or making. So it’s no surprise that I almost always opt to make a gift instead of buy one. Anyone can get a last minute gift in a hurry, but it takes time and thought to create something.
  2. You may be cutting it close, but you should still have time before Christmas! If not you can always print a picture of the product by screenshotting the image off of CaseApp.com

You can get a discount with my code! Customize a CaseApp phone or laptop protector and use code CLASSYARTIST20 by December 20th for 20% off your order!mommy mom grandma christmas gift idea copyIf you want to make some sort of a collage, but don’t have Photoshop, try using a free photo editing online tool like Pixlr! It’s easy to use and if you don’t know what to do there are resources online to help!
my phone in front of christmas tree copyMy case ended up being inspired a bit by Joanna Gaines’ Fixer Upper style, lol! Can’t you tell?!?! It definitely has shiplap and the olive branch wreath and clothes pins look a little country too, but I like it!
Phone Cases copy
I actually made 2 CaseApp collages (pictured above) and kept them mostly the same, but when I made one for my mother-in-law I decided it would look better with the pictures to make the background a little bit darker. That was why I added whitewashed brick to the back of the 2nd design.

Here is a better views of the designs:


My phone design also doubles as our Christmas card this year and I’m pretty proud of it. 🙂

We then wrapped the phone case up with a bunch of Wolfie’s Santa pictures and had Wolfie bring it to Beckett’s mom as an early Christmas surprise!
Above I tried to get a cute picture of Wolfie holding the wrapped gift, but he was much more interested in his snack to be bothered with a photo op. Typical.

Then I couldn’t stop taking pictures because whenever my boys match and snack together it results in downright cuteness.
Wishing you a merry week!
