Weekend Links

Today is such a special day because this evening my sister is scheduled to have her baby! It's past her due date and she'll be induced tonight at 8pm. I'm so excited to meet little Lucy and I'll be sure to post an update later this weekend.

I wanted to take a moment talk about a stamp I'm currently obsessed with. Yes, obsessed with a stamp! Laurie Breaker sent us one of her custom creations the other week and since then I've been finding excuses to send out mail whenever possible. It's just so pretty and perfect, and so much easier to use then the address labels I've always kept stocked. Plus, it lasts forever with a quick ink change once it runs out. I obviously blocked out our address, so be sure to check out her shop to see her designs in their full glory. I highly recommend Laurie's shop (and Laurie- she's so sweet and professional!)- the turn around on the custom design was insanely fast and the stamp is of the best quality. One million thumbs up!


And now, some links!

    I'm not sure if anyone else was having trouble but I couldn't click on a few of your links - including that amazing stamp- I'm looking for an address stamp for my shop and have found quite a few great places on Etsy that I'm trying to narrow it down to - but always having someone rave about a shop makes you want to check 'em out too!
