Is it only me or are you a sucker for silly photo props too?
Is it only me or are you a sucker for silly photo props too?
My favorite pastime activity is going through old pictures of our family, especially the boys. Every year around the holidays I get the urge to pull out their baby pictures and start comparing their features. I spend hours reminiscing over their births, first weeks of life at home, the struggles, the joyous moments together as a family. Some days I wish they could stay little forever. Don’t you?
Holidays have a way of making us slow down and enjoy one another. We focus our attention around family, traditions and the things (and people) we’re thankful for.
Holidays are the perfect time to celebrate the ones we love. And because the littlest ones don’t stay little forever, what better way to do so than spotlighting them?
Our Silhouette Greeting Cards feature your loved ones’ silhouettes and your favorite greeting. Ordering is simple. Send us your pictures and we will send over a proof prior to printing your cards.
Remember! We keep all custom silhouettes on file. If you’ve ordered from us before and have a custom silhouette on file, you can use that silhouette on your future orders free of charge. We would love the opportunity to make something unique for your crew!
I will be once again selling my collection at Lycée Français de Chicago Fall Market this weekend, November 8-10th. Come say “Hi”, get some shopping done and try some awesome french food – yum!
Hope to see some of you locals there! Although I’m mostly shy, I love meeting new faces. I will be debuting some new products as well.

I am thrilled to finally launch our 2013 Holiday Collection. After a lot of hard work, hours of designing products and sourcing out some of the most unique talent out there, I am pleased to say this collection is like no other!
Our Holiday Collection offers a modern spin on the time-honored silhouette. Updated for today’s contemporary lifestyle – we long to capture family memories in a most clever and elegant fashion. The ultra edited line expands the old-fashioned silhouette form into a full range of products for home and personal intent. For your enjoyment we’ve taken the stress of web browsing out of your busy day by offering a hand picked gift guide for each and every person near and dear to you.
Remember the home this holiday season. The heart of memory making and place for the birth of family traditions.
You can’t forget Nana and Papa (or as we refer to him in our family, Peepo!) either. You know they’ll treasure anything adorned with their grand-children’s sweet faces. Our Silhouette Ornament and Family Tree have proven to be the best selling gifts for grandparents. You better believe it!
This holiday season offers tradition with a twist, focus on the family and a meaningful, creative, chic approach to gifting. Our 2013 holiday collection features bespoke jewelry, home accessories, fine art prints and holiday decor that project style, sophistication and a nod to yesterday.

There is something nostalgic about tree carvings. The desire to make your mark on something strong, long lasting – whether it is names or dates – goes back many years ago. I think carving in order to preserve your special memories is definitely a treasure. Our new Tree Stump Anniversary Print was designed with that same intention in mind. A way to remember the dates and events that changed your life forever, starting with the first day you laid eyes on each other, your first date, the date you said “I DO” or the one you welcomed your baby in the family. The print is elegant and minimalist in its form – the white chalk marks against the black chalk paint make this print the perfect gift for couples, mom or dad or a family celebrating a new addition.
For a limited time only, enjoy 20% Off your order (for this print or others) at our new Etsy shop, Wedded Silhouette with code WEDDED20!
In my world, Fall calls for cozy clothes and comfy shoes, visits to the park and lots of cider. Speaking of comfy, you all know (well may be you don’t, so read on..) my recent favorite brand discovery…Their collection has become a staple on my wardrobe for many reasons. I love their effortless classy look yet simple enough to classify as my daily go-to uniform. I am referring to Everlane of course.
Not to mention receiving a package from them is always a treat. I get giddy with excitement. I mean, wouldn’t you? Lucky for you and me they have the most amazing rewards program. For every friend you refer (and they have to place an order), you get $20 off your order. Crazy good, right? So what are you waiting for? Go check them out!
