Coffee Talk

I've added a new section to the shop for Housewares and Gifts, have you seen it?

These coffee cups/mugs are the first addition! I'm pretty obsessed with my morning cup of coffee. I designed these pretties a few months ago and finally got around to having them made. I love a good coffee or tea cup that's cute and/or funny. Most importantly, they are microwave and dishwasher safe! Hooray! (who has time to hand wash dishes anymore?)

I only had a handful of each coffee mug made. So if you fancy one, grab it now before they are gone!

*update: Use code MOM10 until May 12th and get a 10% discount!

 My dear customers. What can I say? I adore them. They make all of the hard work I do worthwhile. Perhaps one of my favorite things to receive via email, are photos of my products in use. Do you have any photos of your Nella purchases? Show me! As a "thank you", I'll give you a coupon to use on your next purchase! 

The part where I confess....

...that I've been a bad, bad blogger! I've had little to no time to check in here, but it's with good reason. I've been knee deep in wedding season! And with that comes lots and lots of invitation orders, like the ones below. (my chevron invites)

I promise to check in more, when I can step away from my cutter!

Just a little peek...

This past week has been insanely busy (no complaints!). Here are some quick snapshots of some family silhouette necklaces and a custom silhouette necklace I made for some wonderful customers. I enjoy making these pieces SO very much. A huge thank you to Kelle Hampton for introducing me to so many new (hopefully repeat) customers!

You are my sunshine baby shower inspiration board

Posted by Elizabeth Allen on January 23, 2012 | Posted under baby shower, color board, inspiration board, nella designs, you are my sunshine | Leave a Comment


I recently came across this You are My Sunshine inspiration board on pinterest that I happened to be included in. Whomever put it together did a lovely job, indeed! I love the color yellow, even more now that we are in the midst of winter. I love the idea of a gender neutral baby shower, don't you?

After a brief hiatus, I brought back the invites shown above and they are now available in the shop for you to purchase! Of course, you don't have to get them in yellow, as they come in a multitude of colors. You can find them here.

If anyone knows whom the rest of the items above belong to, please let me know, as I would love to give credit where credit is due! I do know that the art print is courtesy of Sugar Fresh on etsy!

Valentine's Day Jewelry and Cards

I'm so terribly excited to announce the launch of my new Valentine's Day line. I've been working really hard for the last few months on jewelry designs. I especially love the new custom silhouette bangle bracelets. They are so fun and the quality is very sturdy, which was important to me in a piece of jewelry! I hope you like them as much as I do. They really would make wonderful gifts for Valentine's Day, but also for brides, bridesmaids, moms, moms-to-be, teachers and pet lovers! You can view the entire line here.

Did Christmas wear you out too??
