A Delta Girl Spotlight!

A few years ago we were lucky enough to attend the Making Things Happen conference (do you know about MTH??  If not, go.  Register.  Attend) where we befriended Kate, of Kate and Moose.  A quick introduction turned into a long relationship of two girl bosses just trying to bring our colorful dreams to reality.

Kate was sweet enough to do a little Artist Spotlight on us last week and we wanted to share the news-didn’t you always want to know where we get our inspiration, what our favorite color is, and what one thing we’d eat for the rest of our life (spoiler alert-we love food AND we’re rule breakers so theres 3 rest of our life foods).

Head over, check us out, and leave Kate a little love or buy any of her amazing pieces!  What, you wanted to see our favorites?!?  Ok, ok…..

How customizable IS customizable?

One of the most frequently asked questions from our survey a few weeks ago was “so, you say your frames are customizable, but what does that mean and how customizable is custom??”.  And, in all honesty, its a fair question.  Believe us when we say, it can be AS customized as we can make it.

Need a specific color? Yes, we can.

Need a custom size?  Yup, we do it all the time.

Can you just design something for me and my space because while I love custom, I have no idea what I want?

We got you covered.

I know what I want, but can I just create my own because my design sense is on point?  You go, girl.

I want this frame, but a different trim.  Is that possible?  Sí

Basically, anything you can throw at us, we can create.  Go a head, try us!

Or, stump us with your custom question – reach us at info@deltagirlframes.com

Either way – we got you (and your walls 😉 covered.

Persnickety Swoon

YOU GUYS, YOU GUYS, yoouuu guyyyssss.  We have to take a moment here to swoon over the early front runner for our 2018 crush-Persnickety Prints.

We have been doing a lot of growing and changing over this last year-personally and professionally.  Kids, moves, military life, growth in business….just your normal mid 30s adulating life stuff happening over here.  One of our goals is intentional growth.  We want to set big goals and live them out loud.  You know how sometimes you take classes or attend seminars and they as you to do something and you laugh inside because you KNOW theres no way you’re actually going to benefit from it because “its cheesy”?  Enter the vision board we were asked to create in our last business seminar.  Do you ALSO know that the things your asked to do-those that you laugh at-are frequently the most helpful and influential things you can do for yourself?

Yea.  Its a straight kick in the ass.

We started by taking Amber Housley’s Flourish workshop. She challenged us to make a vision board.. and what I thought might be cheesy turned into more. So much more.  It became an inspiration we kept going back to.  Screenshots on our phone and computer, talking about quotes and visions with our close people, researching patterns and colors.  So you know what we decided to do?  Straight Oprah The Secret.  Thats right.  We put it out there in a BIG way and took our inspiration board to Persnickety Prints.  And the result was magical.

And you know what happened next (yes, those are macaroons…I mean, its a dream vision board).  We married Persnickety Prints with our NEW exclusive reclaimed barn wood frames.  The result was vision board magic.

And now, she hangs in our entry way.  Everyday, the vision of US-where we are, where were going for sure and where we want to be.

We loved Persnickety so much we ended up doing a quick little playroom make over as well. Because it’s Valentines day and all-heart-everything… and because we La-la-LOVE our kids (most days), it’s a keeper fa sure.

We know its still JUST January of this year-but OH! What a year its going to be!!!

Let’s hear it.. what are you dreaming up in 2018? We’d love to hear your vision for the new year!

Life Hack: How to Decorate (your walls) for the Holidays!

We get how hard it is design for your house.  And, we ALSO understand that just as you get it oh so perfect, something else comes along that you love as much, if not more, than what you’ve just hung.  Or maybe you’re a super holiday decorator and love to change out your decor based on the seasons.  Whatever the case, we are problem solvers around here and have yet another set of problems solved for YOU!

We have not one, not two, but THREE interchangeable gallery wall sets for you.  You literally won’t even have to change out nails in your walls.  LITERALLY, they are the same sets-totally different patterns and colors but you have nothing extra to do!  February through October, rock one set.  November through January, be super on point and change out your gallery walls to match the season.  You may not even have presents wrapped, your kids who are home for too long over break may be eating dino nuggets for the 3rd night in a row, and your holiday cards are probably still sitting on your desk, BUT it doesn’t matter!  Your walls (and home) are looking absolutely fantastic!

Set one is consistently one of our most popular sets we have ever done.  Classic, geometric, and full of neutral tones with a hint of metallic zazzle.  It goes in any house and can be kept together as shown or broken up into a couple of mini sets in your home.  Its our 6 piece Hopkins set

Our next was one of our first larger sets and again, with the neutrals, is an instant classic.  This 6 piece mixed grays set has some of our more traditional patterns in it and we love its simplicity!  

And, our bold, beautiful 6 piece Noel Collection.  Same sizes, same easy layout, total pops of color along with golds, whites and silvers to complement all of your holiday decor.  

It doesn’t matter where you start and where you end.  These three interchangeable beauties are all show stoppers and will be sure to amp up the vibe of your existing decor!

Let’s Pretend….

Parents rejoice, summer is over (or nearly over) and its time to send all of those precious littles back to school.  Drop them off and run, walk them in and cry, put them on the bus and have a mimosa.  You do you-and lets all go a head and pretend like we’re going to stay organized this year!  I know, I know, you super seasoned parents are probably laughing at me now….we have littles just entering ‘real’ school and we like to pretend like we can keep up with the beautiful mess that comes home to us.  Just indulge our little fantasy today, ok?

We wanted to high five this school year and start you off right.  We also know that you’re busy, bento boxing, home working, job-ing, sending money in for school lunch, adulating and just generally trying to manage the world, so we wanted to make this easy for you.  Cork boards are always an option with our frames, but we wanted you all to see these beauties in action.  Welcome our 4 beautiful 16×20 cork boards…one simple listing-is it a frame?  Is it a cork board? Is it a chalk board?  Well, dear friends, it is all of those things….and can change to any of those things at any point to fit the situation.

Pick from the 4 following colors in order as shown above: NEW color Drizzle with a white trim, NEW color Newburyport Blue with a rose gold trim, Dover white with a white trim and Westchester Gray with a white trim.  Each frame comes with cork but because of the flexibility of our frames, you can easily change it out and replace it with a photo….AND these 4 are READY TO SHIP!  Thats right-they head out to you Monday morning.  Take a sip of your coffee before you read this next sentence.  If you grab one of the 4 ready to ship frames – launching at 12:30 EST today(!), you’re also going to get a free chalk board insert as well.  Oh yea, and some pretty kick a** pins in a cute storage tin, because we love having your backs! Or you walls as it were 😉  As soon as the 4 initial frames are gone, there will be a listing available to pre-0rder the next round and they will ship within 3 weeks!

Happy 2017-2018 school year.  We can’t wait to see these in your homes and see how you’re using them!  Make sure to tag us and show off your walls!!!!

Lets chat: the anatomy of our frames

We talk it all the time, all day long and we still have to double check ourselves from time to time.  So, clearly, we know that you all probably get confused from time to time when placing orders.  We strive to make ordering SUPA-DUPA simple for you all and create great combos that you can order as is-but should your creative juices feel a need, a need for speed, then we want you get exactly what you want!  So, lets discuss the anatomy of our frames!!!  When you order you’ll be asked for: Size, Base color, pattern, pattern color, trim, trim color, and orientation.  Lets chat through them!

Size-Pretty self explanatory.  What size is the photo you are framing?  8×10, 11×14, 5×5?  And then you need to pick either our 4″ or 6″ width.  Confused on that?  We did a post on that as well

Base Color The color you want “under” the pattern.  Hint: Its the color that goes on first

Pattern and Pattern Color- Select the pattern you want on your frame and then what color you want it in

Trim and Trim Color- The trim is a separate wood piece that we glue, nail and add to the base frame itself – its what actually houses the photo – laying top of the finished frame.  We worked super hard this last year to get custom trim styles created just for our DGF clients – so that we KNOW we’re adding pieces that are not only beautifully made but will add that extra added touch you won’t see elsewhere.

Orientation- Landscape or Portrait.  Horizontal or Vertical.  Let us know so we can make sure that the pattern is oriented correct, and that back saw tooth hanger is installed in the right direction way:) Ordering a square print, just select whichever your hearts desire….its all the same!!

Lets hit up some examples for a second:  

The amazingly popular neutral pinstripe!

And then Innocence pinstripe, Gray and Gold Ikat and Rose Gold Honeycomb!

Now, dear friends, go forth and CREATE ALL OF THE THINGS.

We dare ya.

And if you still aren’t sure – not to worry, we still love ya anyway. Feel free to email us at: info@deltagirlframes.com

Happy creating.

Staircase Stunner.no really.

Lets just take a second to appreciate this sticker that I mom-sighted the other day at Target shall we.  I mean, can I get an AMEN?!?!?!  I won’t bore you with the story about how I *literally* cried the day I left my cool car and got our minivan.  And while it’s for real the most practical car ever invented for this period of life and I’m sure I’ll miss it one day, today is not that day.  And by not that day I mean basically I hate driving it every second.  Want to hear what my hysterical sobs sounded like on that day? Ok, good.  Something like this…..”BUTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT (sob, sob, sob,) even when I don’t have the kids with me (sobbbbinngggg), people will STILL KNOW I HAVE KIDS AND ITS NOT APPROPRIATE (now I am sobbing and yelling) FOR ME TO BE BLARING RAP MUSIC, SINGING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN TRYING TO STILL BE COOL

Now, while I WISH this was a made up story, it is not.  I blame pregnancy hormones-at the time I was 3 days away from having our third.

Moral of the story.  My faith in my coolness was resolved thanks to this simple minivan window sticker. Rock on with your bad self mini van driving moms.  I know you’re still cool.

Promptly, I went home and decided that I was going to tackle the staircase with my new cool frame set.  Its my house-its my staircase-I can be cool.  This is no joke what I was telling myself as I drug out the hammer, nails and frames.  Turned on some Beyonce (on my headphones because I don’t need my 4 year old realizing how cool Queen B or their mom is just yet….) and got to work.  And then I feel in love with the result

You know how we LOVE some functional design.  We love the messy, ever changing approach to parenting.  We love inspiration of other makers.  And above all we love our families.  Lets chat about some of the stuff that makes up this staircase stunner (see.  cool words-we’re cool)  Classic black, gray, whites and silvers make up the colors of the gallery wall.  We also needed a way to make sure our littles felt included.  Adding a 16×20 cork board into the design isn’t something you typically see on a staircase gallery, but we couldn’t be happier with that choice.  Our littles LOVE it. They love that their art work is displayed.  They love seeing it as they go up and down the stairs.  They love pointing it out to EVERYONE that walks into our house.  It also adds an unexpected pop of color into the wall and is easy to change out when new works of art come home!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another show stopper was our adding our aammaazziinnggg 16×20 letter board from LetterFolk.  

 

 

“Thats what happens when you’re brave enough to sing what you were made to sing.  So sing on little birds!  Singe right now the songs that must be sung.  The world needs your new, different music.  Dear birds-you are the ones.  Don’t keep your songs locked away for fear of other birds you might annoy.  The worlds in need of brave birds who’ll say they’ll braves sing with joy!!”

But, seriously, if you haven’t seen the entire Story About a Bird yet, take the 3 minutes and enjoy your day more.

 

 

What? You know you’re cool too?  Thats what we figured. We had such an awesome response from this set on Instagram, we decided to list it for you all as well!  You can grab the 13 piece set here!

Sing on you bad ass-minivan driving-momma (and dads and anything you drive still makes you cool in our books….)

We hear your song.

We heart-eyes Little Nest Portrait Studios

Can we just go a head and petition Webster Dictionary to add “Heart-eyes-v.” to the dictionary?  We simply use it way too much and while we figure its a pretty universally accepted verb, if “photobomb”, “ghost”, “weak sauce” and “twerk” get nods, Heart Eyes should absolutely be in there.   We’ve been talking about our partnership with Little Nest Portrait Studios for a few months now.  It was something that has been in the works for months and we were SO excited to launch our exclusive collections with them.  They have simply. amazing custom Heidi Hope backdrops created for their studios and in partnering with them – we were able design collections and colors that are exclusive to Little Nest studios – SO exciting!  Their new woodlands collection is currently in their studio, and let me tell you, its perfection. No seriously. Check out a glance into the custom designs that you can find in their studios! Dying to see them in person – and snag some of their amazing photography for your home? Find the closest Little Nest location, as well as locations of all of our amazing wholesalers here.

We’ve had such a great time getting to know each of the owners and their individual styles.  We were recently contacted by the Montclair studio to create something custom, yet still in Little Nest theme. You guys KNOW custom work is our dream. Enter Tribecca in our exclusive Little Nest paint colors.  Oh! You love the tee pee?  Yes, ditto.  We had some absolutely brilliant friends who made this via Pinterest DIY before our sweet Baby Boy J was born.  Check out their inspiration here and here!  We have grand visions of dip-dying this gem.  Stay tuned for that!!
