Fall is here! And what better way to celebrate this beautiful season than the GRAND re-OPENING of Duke & June?! Mark your calendars for October 16th as I will be taking a limited number of custom orders AND introducing a new ready-to-ship item to my line of Daddies.

you can find #dukeandjune on instagram! 

I am SO excited to get back to sewing, hearing your daddy/husband/boyfriend stories and creating something lovely and unique for you, your kiddos, and your friends!

Welcome Little Duke!

Little Duke: Born May 16th, 8lbs 15oz, 20.5 in
He is here! After waddling around with him for 41 weeks Little Duke joined my family on May 16th. He is perfect and I already have a hard time imagining our lives without him.

Big Duke is not all that interested in Little Duke yet. We did hit a mile stone earlier this week when Big tried to share his trains with Little. It did end in frustration since Little did not show the enthusiasim for trains that Big expected... but it is progress.

 Melt. My. Heart.

I have had to be a little sneaky to get pictures of the two boys together. Big does NOT like getting too close to the Little. It works for now. :)

Growing Little Duke

Hello Strangers! I know it has been too long since I last posted. I have finally made it through the final stretch of baby growing and then adjusting to having a new little one around the well as all of the company that comes along with having a new Little Duke in the house. (Being an introvert makes company extra exhausting for me.)
I have tons of squishy baby pics to share later this week but I will leave you with belly pics for know, just for the suspense. *wink*

Special Delivery: Sweet & Easy Party Favors

ANOTHER sweet baby boy is on the way next month! Which means another reason to eat delicious desserts and giggle with the gals. I was in charge of putting together party favors. I know I have done it once already, but these lemon cookies really are irresistible....and easy. So. Easy. 

Did I mention delicious?

You can find the original recipe here. All you need is a box of lemon cake mix, 8 oz of whiped cream, an egg and powdered sugar for coating. I made the cookies smaller (1 tsp) so that they would fit in the favor boxes. It also makes them a little less cake-y.

Other supplies:
- Favor boxes (I used 2x2" boxes)
-Washi tape 
- Kraft Tags
- Parchment for wrapping cookies (for these boxes I cut 2x9" strips)

Place parchment in the box along with four cookies.

Decorate in washi tape. The theme of this shower was Special Delivery/airplanes but this would be fun in some bright neon colors or even your basic baby blues and pinks. 

For the tags I created vintage style cargo tags with Kraft tags, washi tape and a Sharpie pen. I used the airport code for our city along with the ETA/due date.  

 I really love the way they turned out and the fact that I was able to get it all done while the toddler napped.

Snips & Snails

Have I ever mentioned how much I LOVE being the mom of a boy?

I do not just love him, I truly like him. He makes me laugh. For 2.5 he has quite the sense of humor. He thinks he is a lion...or a train...sometimes both. Soon he will be graduating from my one and only Duke to my Big Duke. A big brother. I think he is going to be great.
