Wellp, it's official: we have a new family member and her name is Mozzarella Astrella (Ella for short). Current interests include licking mom and dad in the mouth, forgetting where she's supposed to pee, and sleeping in tiny nooks. Thanks to @austinpetsalive for encouraging a great foster community here and letting us give our girl a forever home. 💙
I went dressed on theme - as a sofa 🛋-to the @birchandbrassrentals showroom opening party... which also doubled as our launch party for @boardingschoolcollective, so a HUGE THANK YOU to all who came out to celebrate with us! We know it's an insane time of year so your popping by meant a lot to us all. (Especially me, personally, who is grateful for the support as I go through this exciting stage of professional growth). Community over competition forever✌🏼
Client: "Gray envelopes, please!" . . . . . . . . Me: "...k. Step into my office..."

Not quite 50 shades but more than you might think! These are just the current gray samples I have on hand, but the options don't stop here. I think I spend 25% of my waking hours considering color, and trying to match or get hues just right. •
Wispy calligraphy, dusty blue grays and peachy tones, a dreamy outdoor setting in Colorado... those are some potent ingredients for whipping up some invitation magic. ⛰ It's all thanks to @westcottweddings, who always gives me the best details to work with, and the space to just run with it. She pulled together a dreamy team for her darling cousin's wedding and the results of everyone's contributions to the beautiful day are up on @stylemepretty Southwest blog today! • (It's already been a long week with late nights with more ahead so this feature is giving me life, as the kids say)• Tap for team! •
Another example of one of the semi-custom holiday photo cards now available at jrocro.com 🎄 Choose from 15 hand- lettered phrases, or upgrade to a fully custom card. I just added 9 options to include art motifs, too, like these lil candy canes, so there are at least 135 unique combinations and ways to make them your own (...assuming I am doing that math correctly, which is unlikely).
Finaaaally up in the jrocro shop: holiday photo cards! Check them out and let me know if anything is missing or confusing? I have been staring at them for the last 10 hours 🙂🙃🙂 Will only be able to do a certain amount with existing workload so get your orders in early! • # jrocro •
🦃Card concepting for Thanksgiving- a highly underrated holiday, in my opinion. These will get turned into cards and will be up in my shop by the end of next week! 🦃
I decided in my early 20s that my definition of being an adult was when I would learn when to say "yes" and when to say "no." I still stand by it as a good measure of maturity. • I've got it down personally, but professionally...there are instances where I still struggle, and one repeat offender tends to be styled shoots. I know prioritizing paid work over these collaborations makes the most sense, but it is SO hard to turn down opportunities to work with other local, incredible, female business owners. So when @bespokeeventstx reached out and shared her vision and the other vendors on board for this shoot, my schedule said no but my reply was YES. I think you'll agree it was the right move. • Tap for the talented team of beauty-makers. Grateful to have been included! • #jrocro #goldink #weddingidea #weddinginspo #weddingstyle #austinwedding #styledshoot #austinpride #oneeleveneast #fall🍂🍁 #pomegranate #tablescape • 📷 @krystleakin
✨I never get tired of seeing PearlEx Aztec Gold catch the light ✨working away the Sunday scaries, about to put on some water for tea, thinking of putting on another few episodes of Shameless (only on S.3 - NO SPOILERS! 🙅🏻) and hope everyone is feeling relaxed and ready to tackle the week ahead.
🎶 it's the most - confusing time - of the year 🎶 80 degrees in Austin, Autumn elsewhere, and Christmas at my desk. What favorite family treats of yours am I missing? • Will make a separate announcement later in the week but I *am* going to be offering holiday photo cards this year! Stay tuned!
