I'm Earl.

I'm a full-time State employee (not as official as it may seem),
the one woman show behind Earl-Leigh Designs shop and blog.
I'm WIFE to one studly dude, MIKE, who is a graphic artist during the day and freelance illustrator at night.
 
We met on the last day of our college freshman orientation.
I saw him in red hot pants the night before
...long story...
And I couldn't pass up the opportunity to have him in my life.
I'm weird. I've embraced me.
I'm a new MOMMY. It's my favorite title.
Our preemie perfect daughter, HARPER, arrived on December 8, 2012.

I gave birth in pigtails.
...sigh.. 
it wasn't planned.
And then there's SHIRA, the eyeglass eatin' pooch.
I adore the beauty in life and I SEW.
I like trying new recipes and diy projects that are 
sew easy
^I'm also extremely clever^ Ha!
I've never met a glass of wine or cupcake I didn't like.
This girl is Southern as heck.
For real!
Once I successfully upload a video, y'all can hear for yourselves.
Be prepared.
It aint pretty.
I'm a wife, mommy, blogger, designer of baby and women's accessories 
and full-time employee.
Wearer of many hats.
BUT
I LOVE my life and wouldn't change a thing. 
I'm also a C-H-R-I-S-T-I-A-N
(i love that song)
