The Style Hatch + Giveaway

I woke up this morning with the urge to brush my teeth. You know because my teeth felt all grimy and thought "I did brush my teeth before going to bed right?!" Then you realize that you did in fact brush your teeth however, the consumption of dark chocolate salted caramels right before bed was the culprit for the nasty feeling I had on my teeth. (I know you're all thinking where am I going with this but hear me out)

While brushing those pearly whites of mine I started thinking about teeth and that instantly made me think of my girl Nic who was one of my roomies at the Influence Conference and how she has like perfect teeth. When I say perfect teeth I mean like a model's smile, well come to think of it I think she did model so that would make sense. I'm getting so far off track right now but my point is, I was brushing my teeth thinking of Nic (in a non-creepy way of course) and was like, "OH MY GOSH SHE IS GUEST POSTING ON MY BLOG TODAY AND I'M SO EXCITED!!!"
Seriously you guys, she is awesome! Annnnnd I love her, and I want you to love her and I know you will after getting to know her! Plus she is debuting something new today in her shop and I'm thrilled to be part of the first of the cool peeps to get to see what it is! Plus there may or may not be something she's giving away.
So enough of me yapping and on to her becoming one of your new faves! 
---------------------------------
Hey gorgeous Take the Cannoli Readers! I'm so excited that Nat is sharing her spot in blogland with me today! Y'all may not know me... I'm Nicole. Blogger and Designer behind The Style Hatch. No I'm not a fashion blogger, yes I do secretly wish I could be a fashion blogger. Whew, glad we got that out of the way!
Did you know Nat and I go WAAAAAY back? And by way back in blog terms that means we met in real life back in October. First time meeting her in person and she had to share a bed with me! I'm pretty sure that makes me her BFF or something! So since I'm Nat's BFF that means you have to read this- and if you do there will be a prize! 
So anyways- I could tell you all about me and my blog. But that wouldn't make you want to read it. I can tell you that another blogger once described me as brutally honest when introducing me to her readers... I'm still trying to figure out if that's a compliment or not... Why don't you hop on over (after you read this) and decide.  
In a nut shell (does anyone say that anymore)? I'm a wife and mama, saved by grace. I LOVE all things style, so I started my blog as an outlet for that. And then something happened, or a lot of things happened. And my blog all of a sudden became style and life. I did not want this at all, I even blog about it here. But the Lord has been calling me to use my blog as ministry. And I even fight that sometimes, but He always lets me know how I'm suppose to use it.   I also have this weird thing that if I die someday (yes it's getting dark) then I want my son to be able to look back at my blog and see who I was, through my writing, pictures, and even vlogging. I even wrote a post to my son that some blog buddies have dubbed 'the will'. 
This is my sweet sweet miracle baby. Isn't he a cutie? He was saying Hey to the ladies in this picture-- I've definitely got my hands full but it worth every single moment! So enough with the awkwardness of trying to get you to like me... I think knowing Nat's my BFF is enough right- :) Let's get to the part where I talk about being a designer! 
The one thing everyone should know about me is that I'm a professional daydreamer/mama/wife/ blog designer... you get the point. I always loved art and design when I was younger, but was always steered in a direction of 'that won't make you money' Well you can't take it out of me because here I am in a odd season of life and finding myself doodling and designing late at night. So I got this crazy idea that I had more time than I actually do to start making prints. My husband thought this was a great idea so he is joining in on the fun! And I'm excited to announce (for the first time) that we will be opening up a print shop- and Take the Cannoli readers are the first ones to get in on the action!
Most all the prints are hand drawn and digitally printed. Everything I design has inspired me somehow in life. I really love modern yet whimsical things, so that's a lot of what you will see. So come on by my blog, visit my shop- and hang out a while!


--------------------------------------------
Umm okay Nat here again. How adorable is she?! And these new prints, SWOON! I'm already a fan of her jewelry line and rock my arm candy from her nearly everyday, but these new prints I mean come on! I need one of each please! 

Speaking of these NEW prints she is giving one lucky reader an 
8 x 10 print of your choice! Merry Christmas to you!!!

Love this! (and sidenote: I hate that feeling when you wake up in the morning and your teeth feel nasty. My husband and I call it having sweaters on your teeth. We may be a little odd. lol)

My favorite print is the "Let Her Sleep" print! It would be so perfect for my little miss Marleigh's nursery!
