Finally, after all the hard work, our Little Lady’s nursery is finally complete (well, pretty much).

Here’s a before shot. We essentially used this room as storage. For a period of time we also housed our elliptical in here.

And now for the nursery…

Here is a close up of the wall that I stenciled.

And here is a close up of one of the bumpers that I sewed.

And the rest of the bedding…

Here is here changing area…

Over all, I just love the way the room turned out. Matt’s handy work and my sewing/stenciling skills really paid off!!! Now, all we have to do is wait for our little lady to arrive!!!



As some of you may know, we’re keeping the name of our Little Lady a BIG secret! We decided to have a little fun with it and make a game out of it! We never would have guessed that it would take off the way it has, but let me explain the rules…

Each person is allowed to bet on as many names as they want. However, each name will require a $2 donation. Once a name has been chosen, no one else can bet on that particular name. Pretty simple, huh? Plus, all money that’s collected will be deposited into a college savings account for our little girl, with the winner receiving a percentage of the total amount. The winner will be announce as soon as our little bundle of joy arrives.

Here’s what we have so far…really, not too many open spots left!



Well, I suppose it’s about time to make this bittersweet announcement…

Due to the fact that I am a whopping 36 weeks prego…I’ve decided not to take on any new clients for the spring or summer of 2012 (and perhaps through the entire year). Since TEN:THIRTEEN design is a one woman operation, I’m afraid that I just wouldn’t have the time to devote to my clients. Being a first time mom, I have no idea what’s in store for me, but I do know that I will want to spend as much time with my new bundle of joy as I possibly can.

I will still attempt to blog from time to time (and keep you all updated). I don’t think that my love of being crafty and obsessed with stationery will cease simply because I have a baby! I just need to assess my time and priorities and go from there!

I’ve had so many bride requests lately, and have unfortunately had to turn them all away. So, if you’re a bride looking for someone to help you with your wedding stationery, I would recommend contacting Designs by Victoria (317.896.1060), Westwood Paper Company (westwoodpaper.com) or Oliver’s Twist (www.oliverstwistllc.com). They may be able to assist you with your wedding stationery.
And of course, thanks to all of you who have been so supportive through all of this! You know who you are!!!
