A banner for my girl

Yesterday I finally checked something off of my list I’d been wanting to do for so long: I made Clara Jane a banner for her room! Of course I made her a mini when she was born but it has been lost for over a year now and I’m pretty sad about it.  But with some company coming into town this weekend I had just the right motivation to complete her room.  

I found this beautiful colorful duvet cover yesterday and the flowers and colors were calling my name.  I love her room because when I walk in there I can’t help but to feel happy.  I truly believe that is how the spaces in our homes should make us feel.  I want to be surrounded by beautiful things that bring me and my family joy.  I think it’s a noble desire to make your home a beautiful and inviting place and starting with colors and patterns and unique furniture and items you love is so fun.

It’s been so fulfilling to decorate our new home and to breath life into this place!

dream big


At the beginning of this year I had a real heart to heart meeting with myself about my business. (Becuase that’s what you do when you are a small business owner!)

  I got out my one of my husbands old mole skin notebooks from college and ripped out the first three pages about accounting.  Then I wrote all about Tunes & Spoons and where I wanted to see it go.  I wrote about products I wanted to create, revenue I wanted to see, processes I wanted to refine, financial goals in 1, 5, and 10 years, and my dream businesses I wanted to collaborate with.

I had no idea that when writing all of this down some of it would come true mere months later.

I’ll never forget a year ago when Clara was just a few months old and I called my mom crying that this business was getting to be too much.  I didn’t really want to give it all up but I also wasn’t sure if I could handle it all.  She said to me words that had a weight to them even then, 

“Rachel, why would you give it all up now? I have a feeling that you are getting ready to glean from this everything you’ve poured into it.  Tunes & Spoons is not yet what it will be.”

Right then even though I was overwhelmed and didn’t know how I’d make it happen I knew she was right.

Soon after I hired my first seamstress and the load was more bearable.  And since then I’ve hired 6 more and I can’t express how grateful I am that anyone would be willing to spend time contributing to my dream.  I love this business I’ve created and I know it still has new heights to reach.

I’m really excited for the next few weeks.  I’ll be able to share my exciting news with the world and I’m just sitting over here hoping and literally PRAYING that it all goes well.  Can’t wait to share!

Here is a sneak peek of the photo shoot we did a week and a half ago! 📸 I loved our amazing photographer Sabrena Deal.
