    And a notes section to keep up on all of the random things that life throws at you in a month. (Please tell me that doesn’t only happen in my life.)

    Plus, I’ve included a printable shopping list page, note cards, and a wifi password print that can fit in a 5″ x 7″ frame for guests.

    Country Sampler Magazine Holiday Homes

    I have something really exciting news to share today! Elizabeth Joan Designs was featured in the most recent issue of Country Sampler Magazine! They shared our Holiday Front Porch from last year in their Holiday Homes edition. I cannot begin to tell you how amazing this is a for a little ol’ blogger like me.

    When the sweet people at Country Sampler Magazine first contacted me, my jaw hit the floor. I couldn’t believe that they wanted to share a photo from this blog in their publication. They always share such beautiful spaces and vignettes in their issues. Have you ever checked them out?

    Some personal information was removed from the letter for privacy.

    Last year when working on our holiday front porch, I had so much fun putting everything together. This area was a bit of a challenge because I was trying to not to spend a bunch of extra money and had to get creative in my styling. I pulled in some natural blue spruce branches and a few faux eucalyptus pieces to add some extra greenery to the space.

    Blog and Life Update

    Hey, Friends! I’m so excited to finally be back to blogging. There have been so many things going on and I’m excited to share all of that new stuff with you! So, here is a little blog and life update.

    Life Update

    In my last post (way back in February), I shared that we welcomed a sweet baby boy into our family, but he was born super early, so he spent 66 long days in the NICU. He has been home for a little over a month and a half and we are getting into a routine with our little snuggler.

    His tiny nursery is coming along too. I will be sharing all of the details and the final reveal of that soon!

    Blog Updates

    As you may have noticed, things look a bit different around here. Since our lives have gotten a little less crazy, I’ve had a bit of time to work on blog stuff.  Elizabeth Joan Designs has gotten a complete makeover recently and I love how it is looking. Hopefully, you also find that it is easier to navigate your way around.

    Changes and Home Tour Page

    Hello, Friends! I hope you are having an amazing week. You may have noticed that there have been a minimal number of posts over the past couple of weeks. To be honest, I’ve kind of been taking a vacation. From the blog, that is. Unfortunately, we are not relaxing on some exotic beach, soaking up the sun. (That would be the best!) However, we have been super busy with some very exciting new changes.

    I want to share a new page I’ve added to the blog. It is our full home tour! You’ve probably seen parts of our home in the Fall-oween Home Tour Hop, the St. Patrick’s Day Home Tour, and the Spring Fling Home Tour, but this pretty much has it all. Everything all in one place. (You can also access it by clicking on the link in the menu bar at the top or on the right in the sidebar.)

    Over the next couple of weeks, I will be spilling the beans on all of the new things going on. I hope you stick around to hear what we’ve been up too!
