total happiness = a new picnik!

I was seriously devastated when Picnik closed down a few months ago.
I used that website ALL.THE.TIME. to edit all of my photos, make cute logos and images, and I used it a ton for my work as well.  It really was a pain when it closed, and no other photo editing website came close to it, in my opinion.

However, Ribbet is now open!!!!!!
Yay!!!  They sought to completely re-make the Picnik website, and it is EXACTLY the same.  I can't tell you how thrilled I am!!!  If you have never used an editing program, here is your chance.  Ribbet is just as awesome as Picnik, seriously.

I made this fun summer collage with the new website- so cute!  Plus, you can see some of the fun summer goodies I've got in my shop.  Go peek and do a little shopping!
{And if you do, use the coupon code SUMMER10 upon checkout for 10% off your total!  I love discounts, and I love my customers!!}

1. bright and happy mix - vintage dictionary birds and yellow flowers
2. brown paper tags - funky crabs
3. vintage dictionary seahorse cutouts
4. nautical anchor cutouts - red white blue

Go play around with Ribbet now, you'll love it!
And don't forget the Mommy Holly coupon code!  You'll save a little dough, always a good thing!
Happy Monday :)

Hobby Lobby!!!

Happy Friday!  Today is Andrew's first day of summer break, and also the day that my mom is coming up from San Diego to visit us for the day!  We are SO excited to be heading to the brand new store that has just opened in my town....

Ok, I know a lot of you East Coasters have already experienced the joy that is Hobby Lobby, but for us in Orange County, let me just say it is AMAZING!!!!!  It's like Michael's on steroids, for sure.  I can't wait to show my mom!!!  

Do you have a Hobby Lobby near you??
If not, I expect you to road trip to the nearest one if you are into decorating, crafting, sewing (yes, they have fabric too!!!!) or anything creative!!! :)

OK, off to vacuum my house before my mom gets here!
Happy weekend, and happy Friday!! xo!

inspiration: the beach.

I am a hugely visual person.
Photographs inspire me on a daily basis.
I would love to share my inspirations with you.

Want to play along?
Ever Thursday, I share my inspirations.
Share what inspires you.
I would love to see! :)

In the past few weeks and months, I have been inspired by:
the color yellow!
vintage carnivals!
balloons & ruffles!

This week, I am inspired by
the beach!
{it is the beginning of summer, isn't it!?}
Since today is Andrew's last day of second grade {gasp!!!!}, I think we ought to honor the time honored summer tradition of heading to the beach.  Now that I am on Orange County resident, I am only four miles from the beach.  It's right down the road, and I hope to spend a lot of lazy summer days on the sand.


Head over here tomorrow for a fun summer printable! :)
Happy Thursday, xo!

Wedding Wednesday {the dress!}

wedding wednesday

Welcome to my new feature for each week, in order to share every detail about my recent wedding!  It's Wedding Wednesday!!! :)  Who doesn't love seeing some wedding photos, anyways?!

And really, when girls think weddings, 
what is the first thing that comes to mind for most of us??

Here are the details on my fantastically perfect wedding dress,
 which I was {and still am!!} SO in love with.

I picked out the dress fairly quickly- one day shopping with my mom, sister and family friend and we were SOLD on this beauty!  Here's the details...

The dress is from David's Bridal, as is the gorgeous beaded trimmed veil, and the black Vera Wang sash.  Oh, and there was a big old petticoat underneath to give the dress some more oomph!  {Like it needed MORE poof???}  Yes, I think the more poof, the better.  It's a wedding dress, people. :)  It's time to look like a cupcake, right?!  I felt absolutely beautiful in this dress, my husband loved it as well, and it was comfortable, too!  I could move and dance around in it and it was seriously PERFECT.  

Tune in next Wednesday for more wedding details!
And tomorrow is Inspiration Day!
Happy Wednesday, xo!
