Coffee Conversations

Good morning and happy Friday! I’m looking forward to working this morning and then hopefully going out to track down a Christmas tree for our home. It’s supposed to be frigidly cold this weekend, so I figured I may as well use our time indoors to cozy up our home and decorate for the holidays. But the question is, flocked or not flocked? I love the look of a realistic flocked tree, but we’ll see what I can find!
Speaking of decorating for the holidays, it’s around this time of year that I start to really wish that we had a fireplace and mantel. I would love to create something like this. I’m considering re-purposeing one piece of furniture in our living space to sort of turn it into a mantel for the season – we’ll see if it will work! Also love these and the idea of adding garland to all the things, like this. Very into wrapping holiday gifts like this this year!
How stinking cute is this little bag tag?
One of my goals for end of year 2017/beginning of 2018 for Elisabeth Ashlie is reworking and reorganizing our inventory system. It’s a little bit wild right now, and with having someone new coming into the mix, I’m realizing just how unorganized and inefficient it all is! I bought this label maker a few weeks ago and have been labeling all the things in my studio. It’s so easy to use and is already proving to be incredibly useful to have around. 
I’ve been wearing this lipstick a lot lately and forgot how much I love it! I wore it on our wedding day! Some of my favorite everyday lip products have been bundled into a great set – this would make such a good gift.
