About Chelsea

I am a small town girl. I came to Austin to study at The University of Texas, and a very handsome boy sat behind me in class. I love baking, sewing, watching movies, laughing, and willing my plants to grow.

weekend biscuits

Lately, our weekend tradition includes going to the gym for a little bit, and then having breakfast together- in our workout clothes like typical Austin people, except we actually just came from the gym. This weekend, there weren’t any parking spots near the bagel place, so we decided to make some breakfast at home instead. We went with our specialty- biscuits. I got a super cool hexagon shaped cutter for Christmas that I was excited to try, and I love the cute little biscuits it made!

still winter

There are puddles forming in the yard, and I’ve got multiple layers on. So fickle, the faux spring weather of last weekend. This hat was a gift for one of my best friends, made while it was freezing out, given while it was sunny and 70, and hopefully getting a couple more uses now before spring. My favorite part is the fancy pom pom.

Hope y’all enjoy a nice weekend! We have a movie date scheduled, and biscuits to make. And lots of naps to take.

yoga destiny

I’ve been trying to do a little bit of yoga every day this year. It helps my sewing shoulders. I used to go to classes when I lived down the street from a studio, so maybe someday soon I can start again and fulfill my destiny of becoming a yoga-class-farmers-market person. Here is some mat spray to keep your head clear and mat clean, and a cute yoga mat tote to sew.

weekend snaps

The weather this weekend was top notch. The first couple days of nice weather after the cold and dreary should be a holiday. We spent much time running around doing errands and visiting, but we also spent quite a bit of time outside doing some sprucing up. All the 75 and sunny had me thinking it was time to go get some more flowers, but alas, who knows what the sky will do next week.

its nice to be appreciated

Whenever I get an order for some save the dates, I always get little butterflies because: 1. It means I have to do my best work 50+ times in a row, and 2. It means I get to be a little part in someone’s wedding. Always with great privilege, comes great responsibility.

But when I get little notes from happy customers, it makes all my hard work feel so appreciated. Here are a couple sweet notes I have received in the past couple months:

  • Oh my goodness they arrived today and they are absolutely to die for!! I know we are going to get a ton of compliments on these babies!! Thank you so much for all your hard work, I will be recommending you to all my friends in the future.
  • We have gotten a TON of compliments and we can´t thank you enough for the wonderful work you did! We kept one for ourselves to frame and keep forever!
  • I just got home from work and was so excited to see that my order arrived! I opened the box it to discover the most beautiful save-the date cards I have even seen in my life!!! Each one is a precious work of art. I can’t stop staring at them and am so excited to get them out to our guests.

Hope that makes you remember there are people in the world who appreciate your hard work, and your time means something more to them!

Hope you have a nice weekend! The sun came out here!
