New Additions | Simply Sweet Prints

While I've been MIA from the blogging world,
I've been spending my days with my little man 
playing cars, trucks, trains, coloring, doing puzzles, 
building with blocks, reading, reading, reading,
and then when I have a minute to myself I do some Simply Sweet Prints work. 

Some of my favorite new items
have been my decorative prints.
The majority of the time I am inspired to designed 
with a little one's nursery / bedroom in mind. 

So today, I wanted to share a few of those sweet little additions

“You, you alone will have the stars as no one else has them...
In one of the stars I shall be living. In one of them I shall be laughing. 

And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing, when you look at the sky at night...

You, only you, will have stars that can laugh.”

Make A Mess!

I'm just going to start here, 
if you are not following A Beautiful Mess on Instagram
you are missing out in a big way!

And if you ever have a lack of inspiration, 
this will solve all of your problems:

Seriously. I visit both, daily.

Now I would say you all know how much I love to craft,
But I'm pretty sure you don't.
I always have all these great plans for updating my blog
and well... life just happens.

So I'm going to tell you.
I. Love. To. Craft.

Always have. Always will. 
It's in my blood. :)

So, when I heard about the launch of the very first Messy Box...
I do what I always do,
sent the link to my amazing husband,
and put it on my wish list (most likely for Christmas).

I just said he was amazing... but really guys, he is AMAZING
because now this beautiful perfect little box of crafting supplies
shows up in my mail box once a month. 

 So, because I'm way behind on this sweet little blog,
I am going to skip ahead and bring you my second Messy Box from April.

"Messy Box subscribers get a monthly box of awesome products 
you can use to document your life in style." 

You’ll get a bunch of one-of-a-kind items like stickers, patterned paper, journaling cards, 
(my favorite) washi tape, and so much more!

Each month, they focus on a cool design or theme to get you inspired!

So here is what was included in my April Messy Box!

6- "9x12" Papers (One Sided)

Tiny Black & White Alpha Stickers
Rainbow Washi Tape
Rotary Phrase Stamp
Heart Die Cut Shapes

I also wanted to point out how cute the packaging is!

7- "4x6" Journaling Cards

(And I LOVE that some include quotes,
because I am a HUGE quote lover!)

6- "3x4" Journaling Cards

12- "3x3" Journaling Cards

I am a huge fan of journaling cards,
and there are so may fun ways you can use them while scrapbooking.

I love that these are not your typical designs that all stores carry
like Michaels & Hobby Lobby.
They are unique, and so much fun!
AND they are on a heavy weight paper as well as double sided. 
(Varying colors on the alternative side.)

Great quality on all products. 

I was hooked after my first box,
and my May subscription should be tucked inside my mail box early this week.

I already can not wait to see what is in side and share! 

If you want to look into a subscription for yourself,
and I'm going to highly recommend you do :)
