Feature: Amy J. from Delightful Distractions

I'm sure you have noticed my blog recently got a tiny makeover with my new happy banner.  Well I am excited to introduce you to the lovely Amy J. from Delightful Distractions who made it for me!

Amy started following my blog a little while back and as always...I need to peek in everyone's blog who decides to follow me....and the moment I did...I was hooked.

Amy's incredible blog is chock full of her incredible sense of style, graphic design skills, and inspiration galore.  Plus...she exudes oodles of friendliness and warmth in her writing voice with her transparent posts.

Oh and read her twins story but grab a box of tissues. An incredible testimony and her faith encourages me so much.
After seeing some of her Etsy shop and graphic design talent I was completely in love!  I knew we shared some of the same design tastes.  She combines a delightful merging of a love for vintage with a fresh modern feel.  I am in such awe of her skills which prompted me to ask her if she had ever considered blog design.

When she decided to work with me I felt like it was Christmas morning!  I can't tell you how happy I am with my perfect banner and buttons.  I love how they illustrate my love of garlands, birds, and lots of color! It makes me happy every time I see it! And for icing on the cake...she was amazing to work with...so patient and really saw my style immediately!

I admire her work so much like the above nursery prints using scripture verses.  If I ever have another baby these will certainly grace the nursery walls! :)
She is also VERY crafty and I absolutely love how she shows us how to make our own washi tape out of mailing labels using one of her many lovely free printables.
Oh and these adorable printable menus to play restaurant with the kiddos!
Or these perfectly sweet labels that I used for the girl's picnic party!
 And such brilliance sharing ideas like using old books as picture frame mats covered in fabric!
Now if that does not speak to my fabric loving heart...I don't know what does!
And her decor style...oh be still my heart!  Fresh vintage style again.  I love Amy's idea to cover those chrome legged kitchen chairs with a vintage tablecloth that her mother in law helped cover. Brilliant!  Or her daughter's gorgeous bedroom!  Seriously, I could stare at her blog all day.

Please say hello to the lovely Amy 
I promise you won't be disappointed. 

P.S.  She even has an awesome new chore chart printable.  
 See?  
Oodles of awesomeness.

And Amy?  
Thank you so very much for making my blog pretty. :)
I am thrilled to share you with so many of my other friends who I'm sure will just love your blog like I do. :)

  7. Yes, I followed her after seeing your Pinterest picnic pinned! Both of you are great finds! Lovin' pinterest bc it is a great way to connect with people who love the same things...in this case, textiles, fabrics, vintage prints, and paper! I have zero talent in web design so I LOVE all the free printables! Thanks! Christie
