Today I'm giving a shout out, if you will. I must sing the praises of supersweet Joyce from SHMILY DESIGN! She made my store banner, avatar and blog banner. Pretty fabulous, huh? Thing is, you all know I'm 'computer idiot' (that's the stage beyond computer stupid) and she helped me through everything! Super-fast response time, super-friendly and just super- accomodating. She sent me everything I needed to have a custom stamp with an image of my avatar made too. I couldn't just let it be - I had to let you all know!

Beside the banners and avatars, she has cute little girl skirts and felt hair clips like this lightbulb one. If my husband wore hair clips, I'd get him that one cuz he always has a bright idea ;)

So, THANK YOU JOYCE!! I'm giving you a day off today but brace yourself - I'm thinking about matching business cards. Are you up for it? :)


I'm still working on the first of 4 custom albums. I showed my customer some of the pages I've been working on and her response was so beautiful I just wanted to reach through the computer and hug her!! So, I'm off to finish working on her stuff. I'm on cloud 9 right now!


  1. How could she not love your stuff! i'm sure she will be in love with it!

  2. Lovely banner. Eversince my husband and I read the story about 'shmily', we took it upon ourselves to always try to show each other how much we love each other even in simple ways.

    Fast fact: SHMILY - means See How Much I Love You.

    Ps. Love the music.

  3. thank you melissa! you rock! i'm really glad you like your banner and avatar!

    the old story about SHMILY is where my hubby and I got our names from...SHMILY Studios for this photography and SHMILYdesign for my shop!

    we always sign off with 'shmily' whether email or texting...hehe what can I say, my family loves 'cheese'!

  4. Just to say that I love your work (the Girl album is the cutest thing) and the new banner too.


Thanks for visiting my blog. I love hearing from you!
