So the flower thing is getting pretty overdone, right? Well, I for one am not sick of it in the least. Jewell's version: a J.Crew women's headband (no longer available, but here is a cute one on sale from Crewcuts), plus the addition of a fluttery blossom I got on sale (score!) at Anthropologie (still available in gray on the website).

Etsy find: Rosebud Lips: plain adorable. I know a lot of people are doing headbands like this these days, but I haven't seen any cuter and more tasteful than these. Fabulous for your little girl, but you're not left out either as there a just as cute of options for women.

DIY: My friend Tysha (who has an amazing photography business, Little Red Wagon) has put up fantastic how-to instructions on her photography blog. If you're into trying your hand.

• Target Shoppers Annonymous •

You know you have a problem when:

You wrack your brain trying to come up with any household item you might "need" as an excuse to go to Target.

Going in for only paper towels, you somehow leave Target with $291 worth of merchandise, a quarter of it spent on Dollar Spot items.

The factors that will seal the deal on your decision to move to a small town are:
a) Does it have a good school system
b) Is there an indoor public pool
c) Does it have a Target

While on a frenzied quest to reach end-of-isle discount chocolate, trying to maneuver one of those unmaneuverable, oversize toddler-seat-equipped shopping carts (fully loaded), you nearly take out an entire row of Cheerio boxes.

You have actually lost sleep at night harboring anxiety about returning and then re-buying an outfit in order to save $2.51 by getting the newly reduced clearance price.

You have purchased multiple Dwell Studio infant boys clothing items, despite the fact that you do not actually have, and may never have, an infant boy.

One of the post labels for your design blog is "Target."

Well, here's some cute boy clothing for all those of you who do have little boys.

< Paper Culture >

I pretty much love Facebook. And though I'm not as interested in the commercial usage of it, I did "like" one very cool paper establishment I discovered there: Paper Culture. They print everything on recycled paper. Their massive portfolio of designs is sure to make you keep Paper Culture in mind for your next baby shower, party, or announcement.

<{ Alphabet Poster Premier }>

Well, it's here! Finally. My decorative alphabet poster is up in my Etsy shop...and up on my living room wall (someday I'll put it in Ivy's room...when she has a room). I ended up going with a giclee print rather than a silkscreen; the details, many ink colors, overlapping shapes and other factors made the decision for me. Honestly, it looks FABULOUS. Exactly what I was hoping for. The poster is printed on Arches watercolor paper and is 18 by 26 inches.
