Hello Sue // Hello iPhone

I finally broke down + got an iPhone. I know, I know! I can't even tell you how happy I am to have this fantastic gadget in my hot little hands. My mind is blown every time I use it + often ask myself, Did I really just make that happen using my finger? It's absolutely magical!

I think my favorite part is the camera. It's so clear + can actually create quite a bit of depth. Once again, I often ask myself, Did I really just take that photo with this phone? Crazy! Anyway, thanks to Elsie, I've learned about some super fun photo apps out there to create really neat shots. There are lots of them to experiment with! Here are some photos I've snapped using the Instagram app. The Earlybird is my favorite filter!

I'm still learning, but so far so good. My only regret is waiting this long! Do you have a favorite app or trick you'd like to share? I'd love to hear about it!

3000 Sales // Etsy Congrats

I did it! I reached my goal of 3000 sales on Etsy. Huge hugs + high fives to everyone that purchased something from my shop or is thinking about doing so in the future. It really means the world to me!

After shouting the good news about my latest milestone achievement, I got the most amazing gift from Etsy. They made a sweet little congratulatory word bubble sign, complete with glitter + all, then sent it to me in photo form via Twitter. How amazing is that? Totally made my year!

Rosette Fascinator // Final Photoshoot

Did you miss out on getting a Rosette Fascinator before they retired? You're in luck. I found a secret stash! The Cordial + The Parfait are in stock in the Giant Dwarf Etsy Shop, but once those are gone, that's it forever!
