Name Change & Etsy Finds

I have changed the name of my blog to the name of my first blog. I have always
loved the Hey, Pretty Girl name for my blog and have decided to change it back.
So if you all could change your links form Hip to my Heart to Hey, Pretty Girl (the link is the same though), I would appreciate it!

Etsy Favorite Finds

How cute and awesome is this whale tissue holder? I love that the tissue is comes out of his 'blowhole'. Adorable. I want this really bad, but it sold today :(

Love, love, love this Be Nice or Leave pillow. Wouldn't this look awesome sitting on your couch or chair? Love it!

This would look awesome above my bed. I need to learn to crochet!

This flower garland is so elegant and pretty. How beautiful would this look for a wedding?

Gorgeous! Love the colors here and this would look adorable in a baby's room.

OMG!! I NEED THIS RUG! How amazingly gorgeous is the colorful rug? Can you image how awesome this would look in a house?

I will be back later with more Etsy Favorite Finds.


I really need to think of better blog post titles huh? Oh well. It has been forever since I last posted. I have gotten so busy and just plain tired. To make up for my lack of posting, here are 2 layouts that I did recently.

I did this layout for my critique group's (over at January challenge. We had to use NO patterned paper, which for me, is hard considering I LOVE my patterned paper! I used a sketch from Becky Fleck's PageMaps 2 book. Love that book! This is my niece being a little stink pot! She is so adorable, I love her to bits! The title is one of her many nicknames that I have given her. :)
Material Used:
Kraft cardstock: The Paper Studio
Cardstock: yellow-The Paper Studio, teal & grey-Core'dinations, green-American Crafts, white-Bazzill

This layout I did for's January Scraplift the Person Before You challenge. I had the honor of lifting ~{Puppet}~'s layout you can see here.
I really loved how she made a scallop around the edge of her layout and I really loved the white inking with the doodled border. I also loved her topic that she scrapped.

Happy belated New Year's! One of my New Year's goals is to become a better blogger, so I signed up for Elsie's Blog Love e-course (you can find info about it here). I have yet to fully get into the course, but I hope to soon!

I haven't made a layout in a long long time... I think it was a couple months ago when I sat down and made a layout. This is the layout I did on NYE. It is me and my niece and every time I visit her, we have to take pretend naps. I used a sketch out of Becky Fleck's PageMaps 2 book.
Products Used:
Pink Paislee (heart, polka dot pp)
Dream Street (green pp)
Scenic Route (cream lined pp)
October Afternoon (brown polka dotted pp, Notes card, date stickers)

I hope everyone had a fun filled Christmas holiday and Happy New Year!!
