Fluent Sarcasm & Sous Chef!

So we have not one but two fantastic new releases this week that are near and dear to my heart! Sous Chef was a request, and Fluent Sarcasm–well that just speaks to me!

This kit is so much fun! For every sarcastic quip or snarky little eye roll, this kit is waiting!

My kids love to cook. Love! They love to fight over who cracks the eggs or licks the spoon. I have lots of photos of them helping in the kitchen, so I was happy to make a kit like this!

Here’s a freebie for you! Just click to download.



Fresh Air & A Freebie

Ahhhh, breathe in the fresh air! It’s one of my absolute favorite parts of the warmer weather! This is one of my favorite Spring-y kits in awhile!! Soooo, ready, set, GO!

And here’s a FREEBIE for you! 🙂 Just click to download:


Life is an Adventure Blog Hop

Lucky In Love

It’s been awhile since we updated the blog. It’s one of those things that got lost in the shuffle during our move.

We’re going to try to get back to it, though, starting with showing you what we’ve been up to this week!

Take a look at the bundle, too!

We are going to try to get back to a schedule where we offer freebies here on the blog periodically. We’re trying to find a new normal after our move! We are loving The Lilypad! But with any change, ya gotta find your new normal, right? So here’s to a new normal!

It’s Bella Gypsy’s Advent Sale!

We Go Together and Christmas, Yay!

Hello, Bella Gypsy fans! Sorry for the delayed post this week. This is the time of year that everything seems to catch up to me and it’s hard to slow down and appreciate the little things because I’m so busy forgetting about the big things. Eeek.

Happy Wednesday! As Summer Break is winding down it’s becoming more obvious that I may have tried to cram too much onto our Summer Bucket List. So now I’m just trying to avoid leaving my house like a World Class agoraphobic. Besides, it’s too hot to leave the house. So now my kids are bored and I’m in complete denial school starts in three weeks. THREE weeks! Anyhoo, this week Tabatha and Lena have two adorable kits to chase away the boredom and add some sparkle to your remaining Summer. Here are the peeks:
