Customize me.

So A) I haven't had a blog post in forevs and B) I haven't posted any of the tees & onesies I've whipped up in the last few months so I am going to list them kind of in the order I did them...months ago. Oooops, mah bad. At least you get to look at some of the cutest models ever!


So who isn't obsessed with this song?! (Yeah yeah I know it's so 6 months when I made the tanks but I am still lovin' me some Iggy!) Well if you are not, I am not really sure why.  It's my ringtone, Crosby stops in his tracks & immediately starts dancing when he hears it, & I could listen to it on repeat. So that being said, I knew I had to make a shirt with lyrics from this song.  My guinea pig is usually Crosby (and while he is for sure going to have this shirt at some point) but I decided this time it would be one of my other favorites, sweet Scarlett! I took a boring white tank and dyed it ombre style.  Pretty sure she is so fancy and totally rocks this tank. A friend of a friend saw Scarlett's tank and wanted one for herself and her little boy Hudson. I love a good "mommy & me matching" situation. She also has a life & style blog (Fox Den Blog) with killer posts so y'all should go check her out!

For my favorite little Baylor fan, Jack

The shirts below were made for a one of my oldest friends who is a singer! She had an album release party and wanted all of her nieces/nephews to be able to wear a shirt the design was not made by me (it's fabulous though isn't it?!) but I painted the shirts.

Texas is my favorite but I made an exception for this of my oldest greatest friends lives in OKC and wanted a onesie for her sweet little girl so I went against better judgement and made her this (with lots of love!) 

We all know my love for Mean Girls so this design was totally necessary.  I made it for my friend and fellow "mean girl" Genny for her bday, with the intentions of also making one for myself haha! We aren't afraid to match...

Senor Crosby's Fiesta!

CONFESSION: Let's just preface this blog post with the fact that I basically FORGOT to take any pictures of the decorations at the party or before so many of the pictures were the next you won't even get the full effect but ehhhh, you'll get the idea.  Also sorry for the extra grainy iphone shots! A few posts ago, I showed you the invites & said that it was a fiesta theme so I went heavy on the pinata type fringe.  I made the cupcake toppers, the sopapilla toppers (seen below, I got no action shots of them...), and the fringe banners.  I hung several other banners and had some serapes placed about that ordered from a party supply company and my mom had some pinatas made for the party. 

Pre-party DIY-ing 

This guy was actually next to the front door, but the wind
was blowing like crazy so he had to move indoors.

Crazy hurr, don't currr. I promise his hair was somewhat "done"  before
he started running around like a crazy person. 

Sweet Cousins!

Post cupcake.

Do ya chain hang low?!

You know me, any chance I can get to quote an old school rap song, I take it! Here is a little purse DIY that I whipped up last month before heading to Vegas.  My friend Megan is a fellow thrifter and found me a hot pink snakeskin clutch (with a long strap so it can be worn cross body) and I of course loved it...when I got it in the mail, a thought occured: "uhhh I have that exact purse but in light pink/purple!" I have probably had it since college and hadn't used it in forever.  It's missing the strap and so I always just carried it as a clutch which I almost never use anymore...this girl needs a strap! I also decided I didn't need 2 pink snakeskin thrifted bags so I decided to try a little something on it.

Open Shelving

It's been awhile since I have given you an update on Casa Montgomery....probably because not much has been updated since I have been back to work, oooops haha! We have had weddings, showers, or some sort of party nearly every weekend since August and between that and working, haven't had alot of time to devote to renovating. BUT the grout has been completed and our open shelving is now up! Here are some pics of the shelves going down to refresh your memory (sorry for the awful grainy pics).

I forget how bad it was before...okay fine not bad but just builder-y.  Ewww. Those counter tops and that backsplash. So remember since this we have painted (adios builder beige and my chalkboard wall), knocked out the backsplash, re-dry walled , put up new tile backsplash and installed concrete counter tops. Here are a few of our inspiration photos of how we wanted the white subway tiles & open shelving to look like.

And without further adieu, here is what they currently look like: 

Okay sort of...I didn't get a picture of the whole space and things aren't exactly in their place right now, but at least you get a "work in progress shot."  We are still needing to buy new plates/glassware to display, and those cute new canisters aren't in their permanent home (plus the hubs already dropped and broke a lid...I think they lasted a full week in our house before that happened!) Below are a few items that we have been eyeing to put up there....
