March Favorites: Courtney's Current Crush List

Posted by Courtney Frye on

Spring is officially here and we're nearing the end of this 3rd chapter in this book of life called: 2019. Like most of you, March Madness has taken over our TV's as we live for college basketball! March has been crazy in our household. Long gone are the long winter days with simple schedules and I quickly realized this month how socially out of shape I'm in! Concerts, comedians and The King & I kept me out way past my bedtime this month and I'm already looking to April with a "let's s-l-o-w down" mentality.  Never the less, below are...

Happy Hand Lettering

Posted by Courtney Frye on

A couple of Saturdays ago I had the pleasure of teaching hand-lettering to 20 women in a gorgeous $2.25M model home in North Raleigh. I literally walked away gushing with gratitude for the opportunity to be a part of this event.  Hosted by two rock star realtors in the Raleigh area, Katherin Burnette and Keli Smith invited their close friends and clients to a morning of hand-lettering and mimosas as well as brunch and private tours of the Arthur Rutenberg home that was a gold medal parade home last Fall. Nestled in the North Hills Country Club and right on the...

February Favorites : Courtney's Current Crush List

Posted by Courtney Frye on

It's hard to believe we are about to finish chapter two in this book called 2019. February, you were oh so good to me!  I've more than cherished the slower pace of life that January & February have brought. It takes weeks for me to detox from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season so the empty calendar is something I have craved and loved these past two months.  I'm not a lover of winter weather but I have found comfort in the coziness of my home curled up by the fire! And during these months when we are typically cooped...

Enhancing Envelopes: How To Line Your Own

Posted by Courtney Frye on

I have always loved to flip through home magazines. Even as a young teenager, I was a Martha Stewart Living fan and loved looking through the Veranda magazine at my maternal grandmother's house. The spreads were stunning and I hated to toss them when I was done, so I found a way to repurpose the pages that I liked the most. I would take some of the more artistic pages and make envelopes out of them to pass notes too and from friends at school. Apparently I was "extra" even way back then!  Now that some of those magazines are...

Courtney's Homemade Coffee Creamer

Posted by Courtney Frye on

Last week I posted the below picture on my Instagram account with the mention of my homemade coffee creamer and the recipe requests started rolling in.  I savor my morning sips of sanity!! I've been watching what I eat and eliminating carbs and sugars since the first of the year so to say my coffee is my daily treat is an understatement. Last year I started making my own coffee creamer in an effort to get away from the chemical-filled, sugar-free creamers Phillip and I had been using. It took some adjusting because if I'm being honest, I like a little...
