sunflower bridal shower

I could not be more thrilled to be throwing a bridal shower for the best lady in Milwaukee! I am flying up tomorrow for the shindig.

I {obviously} sent the invitations out quite a while ago, but wanted to make sure that the bride got them before I posted a picture. I made sure to keep it secret until she got one in the mail.

Stay tuned for pictures from the shower!


new love: felt accessories

Recently I have been falling in love with any sort of felt accessories! It doesn't matter what it is-- a headband, earrings, or a necklace I would love to own as many of them as I can. Here are just a few that I have been keeping my eye on!

from top to bottom

And if you are feeling craft and want to make your own felted accessories, don't forget to check out etsy's supplies!


emilee rose--designer NOT a pastry chef

I sometimes try to be ambitious. French Croissants baking was me trying to do just that.

When I worked at my previous job, I would stop by Salento or Croissant Brioche for my morning fuel. Since I no longer work there, I still want their delicious croissants! They were huge, fluffy and flaky.

I can totally just make them!

Not so much. Above is my first attempt to make croissants from scratch. Not too shabby for my first try, but definitely no where close to the French.

Should you feel ambitious too, just pull out your trusty Joy of Cooking and block out about 6 hours of your day and bake away!


shop new greeting cards

A few new cards available in the shop. Check them out here!


follow me on twitter!

That's right. I have finally joined this thing called "twitter."

Yesterday, my new place of employment signed up for a twitter account and so I thought that I would get one too to follow them. Little did I know, I signed up for a twitter account quite a while ago! Who knew...

I suppose the next step is to finally get an iphone so I can tweet on the go (that's the correct lingo, right?)

Anyways, you can follow me here. While you are at it, you can follow PH Design Shop too!


mid week update

{new invite available in the shop!}

I seriously feel like I might have fallen off of the face of the earth for the past week and a half! I started my new job last Monday...and LOVE it! It is seriously just like a mini version of Broadway Paper, so I didn't feel completely out of my element on my first couple of days.

First and foremost, Tracie had commented on if this new job would mean the end of emilee rose? Of course not!!!

Though, after a busy day at work, it's not so much fun to come home and look at a computer screen for another couple of hours. So my new goal is to try to get a lot of emilee rose tasks accomplished over the weekend so that I don' t feel guilty during the week for putting it on hold. It sounds like a good idea to me!
