I'm really excited about the newest page on the Oak Tree Junction website! I Just finished creating an awesome new landing page for my Instagram followers to make it easier for them to follow the blog, my Pinterest page, my bakery or my Etsy shop. The first time I saw a landing page on the Hollis Co Instagram link and I thought it was an awesome idea. I did a little more researched and learned that its a lot better to create your own landing page on your blog/website than it is to use another website like Landing Tree to make one. I played around with what I wanted on the page and decided on the four I listed above. I hope in the near future to add a few more links to some other things I am working on. As for now go check out the new page and click on all of the links to see what I've been up to!
Jack and I are so thankful this Thanksgiving day to announce our little boy was born this past Saturday. Welcome to the world, Andrew Grant!
*If you notice in the pictures Andrew is hooked up to a couple of machines. I will post about labor and delivery and his stay in the NICU in a future post.
It's a Boy! Our little bundle of joy is a boy! Last month we announced we're pregnant and yesterday on Father's Day we posted that Jack is going to be an amazing father to our son.
The day before Father's Day we hosted a Gender Reveal party for close family and friends (will post about soon) and they were the first to learn the wonderful news through a special box of treats. Everyone is excited we are having a little boy and the baby shower plans are already in the works!
We are so excited and can't wait for him to be here.
Jack and I are so excited to announce that we're PREGNANT! This is the answer to many many prayers, we've been struggling with getting pregnant for the last several years and even started seeing specialists. We even went through a very devastating miscarriage at the beginning of the year. We are looking forward to our Rainbow Baby arrival in November!
We had some fun telling a few friends and family members over the last few weeks. We shared the news with my mom with Starbucks with Grandma on her cup, it took her over an hour to figure it out and thought I was lying when I finally told her. My aunt learned when we were on our way out of town and my mom was saying a prayer for her, me and the baby to be safe. Amber learned by getting a bottle of wine that said: "Only the Best Super gets Promoted to Auntie". We decided to make the public announcement yesterday on Facebook on Mother's Day. I posted "Jack and I wanted to wish everyone out there a Happy Mother's Day; especially to my wonderful mother, who's being promoted to Grandma!" I included a collage of photos Amber took of us announcing it.
If all goes according to plan we might just be announcing the gender reveal on Father's Day....so keep an eye out!
Today is the day to start filming the second video series for Oak Tree Junction! The first is already in the editing room and will hopefully be out later this year. The new series is going to go over some more basic fondant decorating techniques. I have one more series planned and will shoot that after the editing is finish for the first two series. If you have anything you would like me to teach please reach out! Well the lights are on, the camera is about to roll, so it’s time for “Action”!
I’m so excited to reveal the new logo for Oak Tree Junction!!! This took a lot of time to design and figure out just the right look I wanted, but I couldn’t be happier for the end results. I used the website Fivrr off of a friend’s recommendation and put in a request. Within a few hours I had several offer and just picked up the one I liked the best. After a few tries and tweaks I got the perfect logo. Hopefully this logo will be seen on more than just this site in the future!
Can you figure out what’s going on in this picture? This is a sneak peak of what will be coming soon to Oak Tree Junction! I don’t want to give too much away, but I am hoping this will lead to more exciting things in the future. Keep an eye out for what’s coming soon!
I created this blog to share my creations with hopes that it will inspire others to show their creative side.
