Inspiration :: to be and to do

As a crafter/generally creative person, it is easy to fall into the lull of easy.  Easy is when I wait for the creative juices to start flowing versus getting into the habit of documenting things that inspire me or that I wanted to try making.  Easy is when I just don't feel like sitting at my desk when it is a beautiful day outside and I want to play with H.  

But then something will come up where I am really, really, humbled by the awesome-ness of people and really, really inspired to get my rear in gear and make things happen.  

Today, I am swallowing my insecurities and starting some fashion posts.  Because I love fashion, clothes, women, and beauty.  And I have to credit the lovely ladies in this photo for that courage.  If you don't know who they all are, check them out.  I met up with these ladies in LA a few weeks back and was so thrilled to make internet relationships real!

The night I went out with these amazing people I wore this outfit (not the greatest picture obviously) but I am now in the stage of pregnancy where it is difficult to be comfortable and stylish.  Or it can be.  By the way - to all the pregnant women who may be reading this post: skirts above the baby bump is really easy and kind of handy!

chambray top: banana republic (old) \\ skirt: open air market in Hawaii \\ belt: old navy \\ shoes: aerosoles (old)
My other current go to outfit are leggings and tunics.  How I made it through my first pregnancy without these, I do not know...It is one of the most comfortable, stretchy, amazing things for a growing bump.  =)

tunic: vince camuto \\ leggings: destination maternity \\ shoes: target \\ necklace:  new sense and sensibility design (coming to the shop soon!)

I'm linking up with Lindsey over at The Pleated Poppy!

I like making jewelry!!!

A few weeks ago, I was approached to make a set of jewelry for a friend of mine who is a bridesmaid this coming weekend.  I said of course and we began discussing what she wanted the look and feel of the jewelry to be.  My friend got her order in the mail earlier this week and said she was in love with everything so I thought I would share a few quick pics with you all here (the pictures are from my phone so they are a little fuzzy sometimes but I had to share because I had so much fun making it all).

The wedding colors are purple, black, and pearl.  The bridesmaids are wearing black gowns (its an evening wedding) so we ended up with designs that focused on the lighter colors for some accent pop.

For more info on custom orders or to check out my ready made designs, visit my Etsy shop at or click on the the shop link on the right!  Or send me an email (snsandsnsibility{at}!

Have a beautiful weekend, everyone!
