  • Elsie

    Such cute pics. I think this is the first time I ever posted to your blog. I just love you style & you always seem so upbeat.

    I am very, truly sorry about your divorce.

    I went thru one in 2005, totally blindsided by ex, so I extend my sorries to you. It literally breaks my heart to know you had to go thru. this.

    I feel this way for everyone going or have gone thru this.

    Keep up the great work, the good times & the wonderful pics!

    Your totally rock chica!

  • Your photos are awesome! Love the cupcakes! Aqua green is one of my favorite colors, too! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers during this time in your life. May God richly bless you!

  • Love all of that fun stuff you shared! The tea kettle is so cute, love that color too.

    Zack’s painting is pretty cool (for a boy! Kidding. πŸ™‚ )

    and I *love* the pictures that Willard took of you! You’re so pretty. πŸ™‚ I can’t wait for you to add to your Etsy shop with pretties like that new painting of yours!

    And I wish you had time to teach another local class, I haven’t seen you in a year and I need my Elsie fix! ha ha

    I think I should have laid off the sugar because that has to be the longest most random comment I have ever left. πŸ™‚

  • Just going to repeat my previous comment on your last post… YUMMY, YUMMY, IN MY TUMMY! Or as my son Miles would say, “mine, please?” Really have to make some now!

    Anxiously awaiting new posts!

  • You such a beauty Elsie and I just love the dress and cupcakes! Did I mention I just LOOOOOOOOOOOVE that DRESS!

    Monster painting kindof scarey but kindof cute too! LOL!

  • thanks girls! the dress is from Dillards.

    Charin, I was gonna teach some more, but CU just closed. so sad. πŸ™ anyway… if/when i do local classes in the future i will post on here! πŸ™‚

  • Oh, I love that dress! You are so pretty! Nice cupcakes, too! =D

  • Do you know what Elsie…..I believe there is always a pin-point moment when you go from being a girl to a woman and lately I think that you have never looked better.

    You have always been gorgeous, but it’s like what they say about great songwriters, that they have to feel true pain to really make great music, and even though you are going through change and sadness (which is terrible) it really does make you grow as a person and it is really shining out of you.

    I hope that all makes sense.

  • You are just so stinkin’ cute, girl! Just wanted to let you know that you have been in my thoughts – sending positive vibes!

    Love your tea kettle – just saw a clock tonight that was the same color. I thought I knew what colors I want to redo my kitchen in, but now I may have to change because of that darn clock!

  • oh, cute girl!

    so glad there are cupcakes and aqua tea kettles and boys who paint you pictures in your world!

    have a great night!

  • i love the painting!

    and those cupcakes!!! i want πŸ˜€

    but not a good idea for them to travel all the way to Singapore..hehe

  • Cute dress, yummo cupcakes!

    Super sweet girl πŸ™‚

    Loving that kettle – reminds me of my nan!

    I got some of your stuff in the mail today, its sitting in my handbag. . . wonder how much trouble id be in if I was to pop some rubons around my monitor?? haha

  • LOVE the photos! You are just so darn cute…and love the dress!

    Cute candles. Pottery Barn always has some really fun & cute things.

  • Beautiful pics! But it’s easy to take beautiful pictures of a beautiful subject.

    So sorry to hear of your recent trials. Hugs to you and know that I think of you often. I can honestly say that out of all of the “celebrity scrapbookers” you are the one that has inspired me the most. I just wish I could find your book and do the challenges!

  • Elsie you’re such a gem. I saw the photos on flickr and fell in love with them. Will did a really good job. Hope your Monday was great start to a wonderful week!

    God Bless

  • Hi Elsie!

    I know it is hard to be in the limelight and go thru such a personal obstacle. I think you are doing great! Stay true to yourself and nothing else matters. You will prevail and come out stronger than ever.

    I have been thru what you are going thru and it is very hard. No one can ease the pain and no one understands it unless they have been thru it themselves.

    I can tell you it does get better. I eventually find my soulmate and I am the happiest I have ever been. I know soon you will feel the same way. For all I know, you might already.

    Keep up the creativity. I love it and it is keeping my pocket book broke. I can’t wait for the new lines to come out!!

    Take care of yourself!

    Katherine

  • there is so much to be said for those of us that carry a burden with grace, dignity and kindness. not many people, including me, had any clue that you were going through something…huge compliments on your lady-like composure. in situations like these it would be so easy to turn negative, give up, and lay low…congratulations, you are a part of the minority my friend.

    stay strong, hold tight to your beliefs, do your thing, it looks good on you πŸ™‚

    hugs, Kinsey

  • You are the cutest thing ever Elsie! I am obsessed with aqua myself – in combination with orange and chartreuse. I’m vacationing in Spain right now and I found the most incredible piece of aqua piece of pottery. I cannot WAIT to get it home!

    I love your positive attitude – you really are inspiring!

    πŸ™‚

  • i have to say that the second photo of you in the black and white side shot i seriously thought it was your sister Emma.. WOW. you girls are very alike…

  • Okay Elsie…where did you get that adorable pink dress……my sistah is having a party and I need to go shopping! Lubs and hugs to you!

  • Hey the Elsie. I don’t normally keep up with celebs within our hobby {as I am sure you’ve heard this catchy phase before too.. But it happens to be true for me even though it sounds corny…}

    I am praying for you. Mostly that God reveal himself in a mighty way to you and through you. And also know that sometimes God allows things to happen that means we must realize that things are obstacles in our lives. Sometimes they have to removed so that we can truly see the light. I pray sister, that you find and keep holding tight to that light. God is your refuge in times of everything!

    I’ll continue to keep praying. And I also hope that you while growing, changing, and learning about you that you see what God intended you to see through all of it!

  • holy moley macaroni!!!! JUST THIS VERY MORNING my daughter ZOE and i were at our LSS looking at your super yummy stuff, which we bought for my sisters recent wedding BTW, and then we saw yet again some RUBY product (from MM- RUBY is the name of my other DD) and my ZOE says, “so sheesh mom, when are they going to get a little hip and come out with some ZOE STUFF???!!!” to which i say, well i am sure that at some point in your sweet LONG life, SOMEONE will make some zoe stuff….and with such delight and simply happy happy joyness, its here and it YOU!!!!! we will be hunting down every LSS within hours to find this my dear sweet talented girl…and so many thanks for making 1 certain 8 year olds absolutely perfectly amazing day!!!

  • Amazing pictures!!! WOW.

    I so love your work and I absolutely am crazy about all your new lines. Must say that LOLA is my favourite! The whole line matches the way I dress…..mostly in pink πŸ˜‰

    When are you coming to the Netherlands again? I would love to meet you and make a picture of you πŸ™‚

    Kind regards from Holland, Danielle Muit

  • I have been looking for your new products at my local Joann’s… I hope your day is filled to overflowing….

  • After seeing those gorgeous cupcakes I just simply had to ask if you have seen the old fashioned PINK refrigerator that is for sale in a flea market on C-street I thought of you the minute I saw it:)

  • lovely photos, lovely painting, well…you’re just plain *lovely*

  • You look wonderful!! I think of you often and hope things are calming down for you. I am loving both those paintings!!

  • love your photos. can’t wait to find your new lines in the stores. hang in there you are a great inspiration.

  • Hi Elsie, your photos are absolutely beautiful, love the cupcakes one, and your spotty dress is amazing, take care of yourself xx

  • You look fabulous in the new photos…but then again you always do. πŸ˜‰

  • Sweet girl,

    Stop. Take a look at how many people love you. It’s not just your art, or your photographs, or the cupcakes, or the cute cute dress. No, my love, it’s you. Your sweet spirit shines through and it’s what makes people love you.

    Loving people is our highest calling. What a marvelous thing that you were (and are) capable of doing that. Of committing. Of dreaming. And of moving on.

    Keeping you close in thought and prayer. Rest. Eat chocolate. Be good to yourself.

    XOXXXXX

  • Those cupcakes look so yummy, now I’ll have to go whip some up! Happy thoughts your way!

  • Love your dress, Elsie! I’m a sucker for polka dots AND pink! Your photos are always outstanding, both of you & the ones you take yourself of others & objects. πŸ™‚ I like your ‘Love, Elsie’ stuff. I need to find out where to buy it. I do mostly digital scrapbooking but the wheels in my head started really spinning when I saw all your new stuff. Take care~

  • wonderful photos Elise!…love your dress and omGosh…those cupcakes looks soooooo yummmmyyyy! πŸ™‚

  • Where can I get me an aqua door?? I want me an aqua door!! WAHHHHHHH

    Tracy M.

  • **humph!** None of the local stores have your line yet. I am bummed. So cute and yummy! Can’t wait to play. I will have to just wait….

  • elsie,

    After seeing your painting it made me think ….while going through my divorce nora jones’ song “heart of mine, be still” was a song that REALLY spoke to my heart. Check it out!!

  • You are a doll-baby Elsie!

    hmmm…I really am becoming my Mom..she would have said that. : )

  • Weird I posted a post and it was under some other chicks name. Not that I need the credit actually… But you must know that people are praying for you even though they don’t know you or you them. And I am not blowing smoke, I am really praying cause sister walking with Jesus is like riding a roller coaster! It rocks, but you must hold tight put your belt on and hang on. There are highs, lows, and spots of nothing. But remain faithful and He’ll be right there next to you holding up his hands smiling and enjoying the ride too!
