Introducing… Frills Paper + Goods
Although this is not new, I still felt the need to do a little blogging about it. My sister started a blog about 2 years ago to blog about her kiddos and to offer children’s invitations and little party items. Then later, she started a website to offer custom wedding invitations & now holiday items such as: gift tags, coasters, thank you notes + some more things that you must check out. She is a very talented graphic designer and is sure to give you exactly what you have been dreaming of [for any occasion].
If you have never seen one of my trees [from my etsy shop], then here is your chance. One of my customers was so proud of her new tree, she even made special ornaments for it and took a picture to share with everyone on Pinterest! I couldn’t be more excited for her & me!
I just love the way it looks all decorated up for Christmas!
When a friend asks for help, I am there…
…with twenty decorated burp cloths. [So naturally I have to share them with you]. About 10 cloths in and the clock ticking toward 11:00PM, I decided to add a little bit of a modern touch to a few [pictured] and I think they turned out just perfect! Hope she likes them.
Happy Friday Modern Core Followers!

Fall is one of my favorite times of the year, all because I get to decorate and dress in cute fall clothes! Eeeek! I just love everything about fall and then winter…oh my…
….just enjoy my decor [or don’t…whatever you prefer]!
