Black Friday?

Black Friday and the unofficial start to holiday shopping is just around the corner, however, we're pretty sure holiday shopping has already begun on Etsy since this isn't even all the boxes we shipped yesterday!

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

Our most popular item to date has been our monogram wreath.  People have fallen in love with it, and it has brought us to places we only hoped for when we started our company back in February.  We have people at shows that cannot believe that they are meeting the people who originated it's popular design that they have been accustomed to seeing pinned all over Pinterest, it is so strange and flattering.  It has been such a crazy and exciting time for us!  Knowing that people want to have our product as decor for their wedding day, or to give a loved one as a gift, or to hang on their own front door is such a thrill.  Seeing our products being pinned on pinterest and featured on blogs is simply amazing.  We are now coming across copycat versions, and while that part of it can be a little hard to swallow (especially since we have found local people doing it)  we are just amazed that all of this is taking place and could not be more excited about the future of Embellished Living!!

How lucky are we?

How lucky are we?  We were able to snag the Nashville area's best photographer recently to come and take some photos of our stuff!  Kate Crafton is amazing and has a fantastic eye, but we were still surprised at how beautifully she captured our products in her photos.  We have all long enjoyed her taking photos of our families so we really had no doubt that she would do some incredible work for us.  Thank you so much Kate for helping make the images of our items go from ordinary to extraordinary!
