Averylee Designs is back!

It's been a long time since we have provided anything on our blog page, but We're Back!  The company changed hands back in 2014 so I thought it was about time I introduced myself and start sharing some fun facts and ideas with you.

I joined Sheryl back in 2013 adding some new product to her store.  I developed a line of Pouf/Ottoman covers and book slings with the nursery line in mind.  Sheryl had another shop on Etsy that had taken off like fireworks and she decided that she needed to let go of the Home Décor Shop.  Here is where I come say, "Sister Cathy to the rescue."

With the help of our clients and custom requests we have a fabulous custom order shop for all your home décor needs.  Here are just a few items for you to view in our Etsy shop.

Custom bench seat covers for indoor and outdoor use:

 Pillow covers for your everyday, nursery to Holiday:

Now that we have your attention!  Keep tuned for more new items, thoughts and tutorials.

Candy Buffet - Wedding Reception

Candy Buffet - Averylee Designs
I recently attended the wedding of my Goddaughter, Allison to her handsome groom, Travis, in Texas. The setting was stunning under a gazebo on a lake. I love weddings and was brought to tears as I saw the hope and excitment of these precious young people pledge their lives to each other and to their heavenly Father in a covenant of marriage.

For the reception I volunteered to create tags and banners for the reception candy buffet. My friend, the mother of the bride, had ordered an assortment of purple color candy in varying heights, color, texture and flavors. She purchased several glass jars throughout the months leading up to the wedding knowing that she wanted to create a candy treat feast not only for the eye but for the tummy as well. Most of the candy was ordered on-line and sent directly to her house, eliminating chaotic running around to find the right color of candy. From the photos below you will see that the jars were arranged in an attractive placement including adding boxes under some of the jars to add dimension to the buffet.

The tags and banners were cut using my Cricut machine and embellished with rhinestones and feathers. I also used a glitter tulle' for the banner. I decided to hand write the names of the candies to eliminate the need for my friend to send a detailed list and add to her already full plate of preparations. What was helpful was having her do a preliminary staging of the buffet, photograph it with her phone, and text me several pictures of the display so that during the set-up I referred to the photos and left her to overseeing other areas of event set-up. I also had her use post-a-notes and write the name of each candy and stick that to the jar. This was very helpful when I went to write the names on the decorative tags and again when I set up the buffet at the reception site.

Pictures say it all and I think you will agree that this was one fantastic, delicious and delightful candy buffet. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Hunt - may your marriage be blessed with grace, unconditional love and endless moments of happiness. ~ Sheryl

Baby Quilt Complete

Last posting we shared ideas about how to incorporate our line of baby quilts in your Childs room. This time I want to share with you the quilt that I recently completed for my granddaughters room. Below are several photos that my daughter took to share with you the quilt as well as the inspiration that it evoked in the room. Once my daughter selected her main paint color her very good friend, as a gift, painted the tree mural, add the silk flowers and embellished the branches with stones and a letter K (for my granddaughters name). All of this was done with fabric swatches from the quilt as we live a distance from each other and found it really easy to cut scrap pieces and send them for the color inspiration. When I visited I made the crib skirt from our own design in a super easy, three sided, pleated design, attached by velcro strips - did I mention it was super easy??? Anyhoo, we know that baby Kindelynn will be able to enjoy this cheerful room for many, many years to come:)

By the way, our shop www.etsy.com/shop/AveryleeKids has custom pillows to also embellish your baby nursery or Childs room. We'd love to create a handstitched custom pillow for your little ones room too!
