Just a Song Before I Go…

Hi everyone,

I am sure you have noticed that I have been posting sporadically at best over the past few months. Life with a little one is so hectic!

Purple Lemon Baby - 7 weeks

I wanted to let you all know that blogging has and will continue to be on the back burner for me as I enjoy watching my little girl grow. Right now it is the best thing for her and for me if I focus my free time on her.

I am not permanently going away, but I will be taking a long hiatus from blogging. I hope to be back in a couple of years, once little Purple Lemon Baby gets a bit bigger.

I have been feeling uninspired when it comes to content for my blog. We all go through these times and I am sure I will come into my renaissance one day. When I do, I will be back, I promise!

Now, just in case you aren’t a Crosby, Stills and Nash fan, you are probably wondering where the title of the post came from…So, I will share THE “Just a Song Before I Go” and I hope you enjoyed another picture of sweet Purple Lemon Baby :)

I do post pretty regularly on Facebook now…It has really turned into my new blog. You can follow me at http://www.facebook.com/purplelemondesigns. See you there!

Purple Lemon Baby’s Room

Hi everyone! Life here in the Purple Lemon household is a little hectic now with the Purple Lemon Baby’s arrival, but it is also very fabulous at the same time. I can’t get enough of placing my girl on my shoulder as she sleeps. So sweet!

I told you all that I would share her nursery with you, and today is the day! Here are a few shots of the Purple Lemon nursery:

Come on in!

We spend lots of time in this chair.

We spend lots of time in this chair.

PL baby is so small, she hasn't slept in this crib much yet, but she will!

We are so lucky to have sweet friends that gave us this baby bed. Thanks so much Frank and Amy!

Here is a close up of these fabulous handcut butterflies...

These butterflies are from hipandclavicle on Etsy…Check out her fabulous paper cuts!

Our dresser and hutch where all of our treasures are displayed...

Another sweet friend made this super cute banner for PL baby at the baby shower. We just had to display it in the nursery. Thanks so much Sheri!

So that is it! I hope you enjoyed the tour :)

Purple Lemon Baby is Here!

Well, (insert drumroll here) Purple Lemon Baby is here! She is so sweet and, as a proud momma, I just had to share a picture of her :)

I think she is the cutest and prettiest baby ever, but I might be a little biased. She is very petite, but doing great.

I love her!

I’m Guest Blogging at Outblush!

Hi everyone! I know that I have been pretty scarce lately (I am still waiting on the birth of Baby Girl Rinehart!), but I have been doing a little guest blogging today.

Before I fill you in on my guest post, I thought I might update you on Baby Watch 2011. Baby Girl Rinehart is due this Saturday, January 22. I have been working hard with the help of family and friends to get her room ready. I will be sharing pics of it soon. I have been having lots of Braxton Hicks contractions, but nothing regular. I am progressing according to my doctor, but she has decided not to grace us with her presence. We are hoping to meet her any day now!

Now back to the guest blogging…Check out my post over at Outblush. I have been purchasing little pretties for the baby’s room, and I am highlighting one of them today on this fabulous shopping blog. Join me, won’t you?

A Customer Shout Out

Hi everyone! I wanted to take a second to give a past customer, Gina from The Shabby Chic Cottage on Etsy, a shout out. She is today’s “Quit Your Day Job” Series featured business. Congrats Gina!

Read the article on the Etsy blog.

It was nice to even see a little piece of Purple Lemon Designs in the article…If you look at one of the very last pictures, you will see a stamp imprint that I designed for The Shabby Chic Cottage. For great Shabby Chic items, jump on over to Gina’s shop…She has beautiful pieces!

Hi all you lovely lemonheads :) I have been missing you all so very much. I hope you are all doing well. I am good, just super busy with holiday orders and putting on the local Christmas parade (It is Saturday if anyone locally in Corinth, MS is reading this – come on down for the fun! :)

If you are reading this and you have missed the deadline, never fear! I do have a gift option if you would like to order a stamp that might not arrive in time for Christmas. I create a pretty sheet you can print out and wrap up for giving on Christmas. It includes what the stamp imprint will look like, what my stamps look like (in general) and includes a note about their stamp being on the way. Then, I can either ship the stamp to you or to the recipient.

Hand Stamped Journal by Purple Lemon Designs

I also have Bible/prayer journals and pre-packaged stationery that are ready to ship, so never fear, you can get some type of Purple Lemon goodies for the peeps on your list. Gift Certificates are also fabulous options that I can email to you within a few hours. If you have questions about any of these options, please don’t hesitate to email me at kelly {at} purplelemondesigns.com.

Happy Christmas to you!
