I've moved!

Hey! Guess what, guys – I’ve moved!

Last weekend I moved into this charming 1950s Ranch house with my bf (who is even more charming and handsome)!

Image via Google - I only wish it was that green and lovely in KC right now.
I coerced politely asked Megan and her husband to help us move and now all that’s left is the aftermath of too many boxes and too much stuff needing to find a home. And one very dusty and bug-filled apartment that needs to be cleaned. (Anyone wanna help with that one?)

When I moved into my old apartment it was just me moving in. That means one person’s stuff. I was moved and unpacked all in one little day. It was glorious. I felt settled in my new home for one. But this move was not as quick as we’re combining belongings and both of us have accumulated the appropriate amount of stuff for one living by themselves… and one of us has already been living there for 3 years. 

But really, my new home is wonderful. A see-through fireplace in mid-century style (my favorite). Original hard wood floors. A screened in porch, perfect for long summer night conversations. Original bathrooms and kitchen (ok, this one isn’t as charming). I can’t wait to share more photos once things are settled. That, and host fancy, adult dinner parties.

Most of all, this place really feels like home.

The Gender Reveal: SALE Confetti Balloon Revealers

We added some SALE Confetti Balloon Revealers! Well... the fooled us on the gender, but Miss Quality Control says they should probably only be filled up to about 24" (vs. the fill 36") to ensure the maximum surprise factor. That means a CLOSEOUT sale for these beautiful baubles.

The Gender Reveal: New Confetti Balloon Color + New Photos

Now introducing a lovely, opaque purple dot balloon to our Confetti Balloon Revealers in The Gender Reveal Etsy shop. We tested this balloon and it will keep your big secret just as safe as the trusty black dot balloon.


We also updated our Confetti PushPop Revealer photos. Didn't Megan do a great job playing photographer?

My personal favorite, the Black & White option:

Customer favorites, the Multi-color option:

Current obsession: Breaking Bad

by Ben Camberos
I'm currently obsessed with AMC's series Breaking Bad. In fact, I'm re-watching it from the beginning as it's in it last season. But what's even sweeter is all of the fan art that comes with such a fan-favorite show. Check out some really, really sweet artwork here.

You're Officially Awesome.

Jessica Hische. Sigh. Have I mentioned that I have a design crush on her? Like for real. 

Spring is late to the party, the weather has been spotty and I've been a bit gloomy. But then boom! Here she comes with her quick wit and Thousands Under Ninety to brighten my day and collectively everyone around me. Who doesn't want to be told that they're a Winner at Life? Not this lady.

Thanks Jessica for spending your time to put smiles on thousands of faces and make every day just a bit brighter. Three cheers to Jessica!

Now go brighten someones day by sending them an Official Thousands Under Ninety Award.

Introducing: Confetti Balloon Revealers

When Megan, Andrew, and I originally met to discuss starting The Gender Reveal, or initial goal was to create unique party revealers. Well, today we launched our first revealer on Etsy! A jumbo 36" balloon filled with beautiful pink or blue hand-cut confetti. When the balloon pops the confetti flutters down, showering you and your guests with the sweet surprise. It's really quite beautiful and such a fun surprise every time we test it. You can check it out here.

More fun revealers are on there way to our shop, so keep checking back for more updates.
