Calling all artsy graphic tee lovers! This Mona Lisa bubblegumhttp://bit.ly/2lxtOcf tee is only $9, comes in so many colors (I esp like the hunter green, gray, black, and pink!) and you can use my exclusive discount Q4TheClassy15 (Extra 15% off any purchase, valid from October 1st- December 31th, only US site: https://us.shein.comhttp://bit.ly/2lxtOcf).

I paired this tee with my red wool jacket that was my grandma’s. So clearly you can’t find that one anymore, but luckily I found a similar one that I’ll link herehttp://bit.ly/2lxtOcf!

This photo was taken earlier this month at our local mid-morning stomping ground, Barnes & Noble. Usually I work while Beckett walks around with Wellesley. I like it because it’s a nice change of scenery. Beckett likes it because, well, books. 🙂

I wanted to say thank you on here for the outpouring of love and support my business, ClassyArtistBox.com has gotten lately. It is such a blessing to have you all cheering me on, ordering, sharing, and talking us up. Sometimes I feel so alone trying to run an online business and it feels so good when I hear positive feedback & feel the love. Along with the love and support of my family, it’s what keeps driving me.

Speaking of family, my little Wellesley Bea randomly came down with quite the bug today. She seemed totally normal all morning and then around 10AM she started getting cuddly and sleepy so naturally, I napped & cuddled her until I woke up around noon and realized she was super warm. Long story short, she has a fever and has been vomiting. It makes me so sad to see my kids sick. 😭 If you think of it, we would absolutely love prayers that she would feel better soon.

The fever/vomiting combo reminded me of when Wolfgang had strep at this age and it went misdiagnosed for so long that an ER dr told us it could have been really bad if we hadn’t brought Wolfie back and insisted on a strep test. He was totally lethargic and the fever reducers had stopped working. So we took Wellesley in right away today to rule out strep.

Here is a picture of the kids the other day.

The love to “work” on their computers in their cubicle. Haha

Mixed prints for spring

Top of the day to you! 😁

Today I wanted to share my favorite spring outfit that takes me through these crazy fluctuations in Minnesota weather! Next I have been dying to tell anyone who will listen about our double stroller because we’ve had it a few months now and still absolutely love it! Finally, I wanted to give a bit of a life update to tell you a few things you didn’t know about us lately.

First, my long leopard cardigan sweater and buffalo check tee are both from Shein. The buffalo check top is literally under $6 now and it’s probably my most worn top and I highly recommend it. I think mine is a size medium. They were gifted to me by the company awhile back and I still wear them all the time! I think the top is a few years old now! The denim shorts are from the Universal Thread line at Target and they work so well for me and my after baby body. I feel like they are long enough and fit the right way to hide some of my baby weight, yuh know?

Our stroller is the Joovy Caboose Too Ultralight and it is the best inexpensive double stroller ever! It’s sturdy, relatively light, folds up well, and has a cup holder! Plus, one of the biggest things about it for me was that it can hold a lot of weight so I don’t have to buy a new stroller as the kids get bigger. Oh, and the wheels work SUPER WELL, which was not our experience with our more expensive single stroller!

In other news, have you heard about our new business venture over here?! It’s an art subscription box called Classy Artist Box! Each month we send out supplies and access to a video lesson on our new site! This was our first month and I feel such a frenzy of nervously working out a few last minute kinks. BUT it’s so exciting to be able to do what I love and pass that joy to people around the country!

Today is an exciting day for us because in a little while we are launching our little kids boxes with options for preschoolers and elementary age kids! More on that soon, but for now here’s a link to our shop!

I love the kids boxes because it’s such a great way to spend time with your little ones in a way that you both can enjoy. Plus I’ve done all the shopping and creativity for you so you don’t have to come up with it all on your own!

Now I’m gonna go and start making the kids examples for our June boxes!! We are starting with fish related projects and I’m so excited to make them with Wolfie (who turns 3 this week)!!!!

Morning Routine?

Hello Friends,
Today I have a really serious question for you all– almost as serious as Kendall Jenner’s big, raw, horrible secret she was embarrassed to talk about!!! No, I’m not talking about acne, I’m wondering if any of you ACTUALLY go to get your mail/paper with a cup of coffee like they always show in movies and commercials. It is not practical, as we discovered for this photoshoot! haha

What’s your morning routine?

Mine typically consists of:

  • finish feeding Wellesley,
  • wrangleWolfgang as he pulls things off of shelves and drawers,
  • try to make my hair look slightly less greasy/crazy/homeless,
  • possibly swipe on lipstick or a bit of makeup,
  • earrings or a necklace, bracelets if I’m feeling fancy
  • laundry or unloading the dishwasher during breakfast,
  • playing paw patrol pups on the floor with big W,
Look at these incredible earrings!!!!!! I love that these are now a regular in my AM routine because I can wear the same ones in a new way each day!!!
If you’ll recall from previous posts, I’ve been a fan of Carolyn Hearn Designs for a few months now since I found her and I finally can show you firsthand these GORGEOUS Lotus 3-in-1 earrings!!!!

meet Lemon Drop Love, the cutest online shop ever!!!!

**affiliate links included for your shopping ease**

 

EDIT: use code LEMON for 20% off your order!!!!!! 🙂

Hi all! Today I’m sharing about a new online shop that I’m completely obsessed with! It’s called Lemon Drop Love & it was started by a family friend, Nancy, who now lives in Colorado! I watched her start up her shop and it was so exciting to see her put together such a great collection of cozy tops and, of course, the “sock party,” what a genius idea!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to see what she does next!!!

[Scroll to the bottom to see a few of the socks, click the images for links directly to them!]

What I love about her Clothes Line is that the pieces are completely wearable for women of all ages and all stages of life. I also love that everything looks (and feels!!) so cozy! This sweater is almost sold out so shop it now here before the last one’s gone!

If you missed out on the top I have, another shirt from the shop that I’m really loving and recommend to you, it’s their peplum “hoodie” in chestnut because it is so flattering on everyone! And at just $28 it’s totally affordable and worth it because you will wear it all the time!

They also have adorable garlands that would make the cutest Christmas tree ever!!!! In fact, they sent me a garland and I think it’s going to go on Wellesley’s tree in her room this year!!!!

This is what she sent!

And I think this would be so cute on the curtains in a girl’s room… or on a cherry themed Christmas tree!

I had my husband take this photo because I NEEDED y’all to see the incredible stitching detail on the sleeves!!!! They could have just made it simple and boring, but this is seriously great!!!!!

dog is not for sale, lol
