K A T | day trip to ellijay

IMG_0435

I might be in denial but I swear there seems to be a touch of fall in the air, which makes me really happy because I love this time of year! Don’t get me wrong, I love summer but once vacation is over I’m ready for mountain weekends, boiled peanuts, pumpkins, holidays, Christmas music… (The list goes on and on!) My family has a cabin at Big Canoe (located in Jasper, GA) and every year family and friends head up there to make the most of the season. Cason, mom, and I always drive over for a day trip Ellijay and it makes for the perfect fall day. Here’s a list of some of our favorites things to do!

[ apple picking ]

Picking apples is a MUST! You would not believe the traffic to get into all of the different orchards. Some of my personal favorites are Hillcrest Orchards and Panorama Orchards. Panorama makes apple cinnamon doughnuts that will make you fight someone for the last box and Hillcrest has the BEST caramel apples. They’re geniuses who cut the apple, place it in a bowl, and then fill it with caramel. This prevents you from looking like a crazy person trying to bite into an entire apple and get caramel all over your face. (Don’t act like this hasn’t happened to you.) Of course you don’t want to forget the reason you came…Apples! My personal favorites are Granny Smith, Arkansas Black, and Mutzu.

[ antique shopping ]

When you are on the square there are so many stores within walking distance that you don’t have to look too hard to find a place to start. They’re always fun to browse through…you never know what you’re going to find!

[ fun lunch spot ]

Cantaberry Restaurant was the perfect find for our lunch in Ellijay. Their motto sums it up to a tee…Simple, Homemade, Good. It’s a small restaurant that is known for its homemade soups and sandwiches. The chicken and wild rice soup is mind blowing. If you are in Ellijay and you don’t go here, I will judge you…seriously. We loved the soup so much we tried to make our own version…it’s good but there’s is still better.

SOUP

Everyone needs to add Ellijay to their fall bucket list. Whether you’re in Atlanta or happen to be near North Georgia, it’s totally worth the drive!

C A S O N | tips for working from home

WhenItRains_013

Well, I’m a little more than a year out from quitting my corporate 9 to 5 and running my business full-time. I survived a full year! It’s taken some time to figure out what works best for us, but I’ve put together a list of my tips for working from home. Whether you work remotely for a big company, homeschool your kiddos, or run your own business from home, hopefully you’ll be able to plug these into your situation!

1. Set designated working hours and force yourself to follow them. I like my sleep…like a lot. If I let myself, I’d totally revert back to my college self and sleep until noon. Yeah, there will be times when you binge watch House of Cards until 2am and the alarm gets pushed back a couple of hours (or is this just me?) but for the other 99% of the time, SET YOUR ALARM and get up.

2. Get dressed. (This sucks. I know! Shouldn’t the perk of working from home be working in your pajamas?!) I promise you. I speak from experience here. You will be 10 times more likely to have a more productive day when you’re presentable. That’s a tough pill to swallow but it’s true. I have to be ready to answer the door for deliveries, go on supply runs, go to the post office, etc. I can’t hide out and be a creeper peaking through the blinds all day. Heck – doing this honestly makes me more productive and sociable whether it’s for work or for personal. I’m ready to grab a movie or have dinner with a friend when I’ve taken the time to put on a bra, some clothes, and a little bit of makeup.

3. Have a designated workspace. Your set up can’t be your couch and coffee table. That’s too close to the temptation of Netflix and last night’s Real Housewives on your DVR. Whether you have a designated nook, a basement, or an entire room, have a place that is separate from the rest of your house. This helps your focus remain on work during work hours.

4. Make your workspace fun. Make it the most fun room in your house if you can! If the room doesn’t make you happy, you’ll dread going in. Light a candle, hang fun prints on the wall, during the holidays play Christmas music. When your work relies on creativity like mine does, I need a room that is inspiring to be in.

WhenItRains_0055. Lunch: Meal plan and eat at the kitchen table. I’ll just be honest, if I ate lunch in the living room, it would turn into a Sex in the City marathon. If I ate lunch in my room, it would turn into a nap. Sit at the kitchen table, put down your phone, and take a lunch break. Then when you’re finished, you can return back to your workspace. I’ve found that by doing this, I’m less likely to get distracted by anything else. Lastly, be sure to plan out your lunches ahead of time. Don’t waste your precious time figuring out what to cook or what drive-thru you can get to the quickest.

6. Set boundaries with your friends and family. Make sure your close circle has a good understanding of your work time and play time. Just because I’m at home and am my own boss doesn’t mean I’m available for a Tuesday matinée. (I wish!) When I first found myself with this newfound freedom, it felt like summer break all the time. Buuuut…I actually have to get something accomplished everyday so setting boundaries early on was a big help.

7. Enjoy a change of scenery. For the most part, I have to be in my office. I can’t travel with all of my equipment but on rare days when working remotely is an option – take advantage of it! If our website needs a lot of work or we are doing a holiday brainstorming session, Kat and I like to go offsite (I’m still using the ol’ corporate lingo!). It’s fairly easy to find a coffee shop or patio with free Wi-Fi. A lot of Starbucks have rooms you can reserve for free. We love brainstorming new products and designs while enjoying a new restaurant we’ve been dying to try. Plus…you can write it off!

WhenItRains_106

8. Allow yourself work perks (in moderation). At the end of the day, you are your own boss. You’ve worked hard to get to where you are and you should be able to enjoy a perk or two for heaven’s sake! We changed our summer schedule so that we worked late one night a week and took Fridays off. We were able to enjoy a few days by the pool and get some projects around the house done. Our holiday season starts picking up in September so it’s not really an option the remainder of the year. Figure out realistic perks that work for you and your schedule and allow yourself to indulge every now and then.

9. Keep your workspace organized. For us, this involves breaking down boxes when supplies come in, keeping paperwork and receipts filed neatly and correctly, putting everything in it’s place after supply runs, and keeping good inventory. Less face it, being in charge of your own livelihood is stressful enough. Why add to the stress with a chaotic office?

10. Force yourself to be extroverted. This is a tough one for me. It’s one of the biggest things I miss about my corporate job – getting up, picking out a cute outfit, doing my hair, and SOCIALIZING with actual human beings for 8 hours. Pick up the phone to talk to people instead of interacting solely through email. Schedule coffee and lunches with people in your network. One of my closest friends, Ashleigh, also runs a paper shop on Etsy. (You’ve got to check out With Wonder Paper!) I love meeting up with her to pick her brain on what’s going on in her world. Furthermore, let this expand outside of work as well. When a friend invites you to dinner, get out of the house and take them up on it. Better yet, how about YOU invite a friend to dinner! Don’t get caught in a rut where you’re not interacting with the outside world.

I’ve only been doing this for a year, so I’m not an expert by any means. Fellow entrepreneurs, stay-at-home moms, and remote workers, what tips do you have? Teach me your ways! Until next time…

A U D G E | me+you, you+me

If you had asked 18-year-old-me what I thought my life would look like in three years, I never would’ve guessed right. Things were pretty strict around our house, so by the time I was graduating highschool I was just ready to burn rubber out of the driveway and start playing grown-up. Except I didn’t have a car, so I let my parents drive me to school first before declaring my radical independence… (we were off to a slow start, ok?!). And as freshman year started unfolding, I began finding my people, learning to live with my totally weird roommate, and getting into the books, all while trying to figure out what I actually wanted to do with my life. No big deal, right? Then, lo and behold, it happened. HE happened.

jojo05I had a weird gap in my schedule one day, so I hopped over to our school cafeteria to grab a quick bite. I usually would go with someone since eating alone can be kind of weird, but this particular day I was going solo. After gathering my bountiful school cafeteria feast, I saw a long table with a bunch of people sitting at it. There was a girl there that I was kinda-sorta friends with, so I figured I’d squeeze in and chat for a bit while I ate. As we were talking, there was this totally studly blonde guy sitting a few seats down – we ended up putting together that we lived about 5 minutes away from each other back home so we played a round of “Who do you know?”. I don’t always have the best memory, but I still remember that he was wearing a bird jacket that day… which, he still has. I won’t let him get rid of it. ;) Anywho, I’m pretty sure he ran back to his house as soon as we finished eating to stalk/friend me on Facebook, since that was like the beginning of the Facebook era (weird to think, it wasn’t even that long ago!).

1928811_507735946329_5160_nAfter that, I started noticing him on my way to class in the mornings. He would be locking his bike on the rack when I’d be walking through to my building, so we’d say hey and be on our way…. turns out he didn’t have class at the same time. He figured out my schedule and would show up a little early to just “bump into me”. Then I would see him in the library, and he would invite me to random things. He saw on one of my profiles that I liked a local Atlanta band, so he found a concert and invited me to go. He invited me to his birthday party rave at his family’s lake house that was 30 minutes from campus. I weaseled my way out of both. Remember that time when I told you I had strict parents? I wasn’t kidding. And it turned out their supreme reign continued through college. So while I’m sitting here weasling my way out of these invites and thinking “there’s no waaaaaay my parents would ever let me do that”, he’s thinking I’m just giving him the run-around and being shady. Plus, I didn’t have any game at all so I was secretly terrified.

Eventually I gave in… he was persistent! And totally cute. And totally fun. And I just wanted to play kissy-face with him all the time. And by March/April of my freshman year we were an item. (*the crowd goes wild!*) After we had been dating for awhile, he did something I wasn’t expecting. He decided to drop out of school and start working… because he wanted to marry me.

jojo04He proposed on July 4th, the summer between my sophomore year and junior year, and we got married the next summer – on 06.07.08. So I started my senior year of college as a newlywed! Because we’re crazy, and we do what we want!! ;) I remember one of my art professors giving me grief and thinking that I had lost my mind… but to this day, I still wouldn’t have done it any differently.

jojo02We’ve both changed so much. He’s no longer blonde, I don’t have my mermaid hair anymore. He traded in his cute little Volkswagen GTI for a truck, and I’ve got a couple of carseats in the back of my sweet ride. He doesn’t splurge on cool bird jackets like he used to (because he’s older and wiser now, of course), and I only have 37 items of clothing that I wear at a time. No matter how much we both change,  I am still completely in love with this wild man. And no, life doesn’t look anything like I imagined it would at this age. It is SO much better, richer, fuller, and more seasoned than I every could have thought.

jojo03He is one of the most loyal friends I’ve ever seen (John 15:13). He thrives in moments of need, providing for people in so many different ways (Phil 2:4). He means what he says, and he says what he means (Matt. 5:37). He makes our babies laugh more than anyone else (Prov. 17:6). He can diffuse a tense situation with his quick humor (Prov. 15:1). And I’m so thankful for his giant, giving, and (sometimes annoyingly) cheerful heart, and how he can always seem to love me so much better than I can ever love him.

jojo06God is so good. While marriage was never even on my radar when I went off to college, it was His grace to me that I found it so young. And while marriage is always up and down, it’s teaching me so much about God’s love for us.

jojo01

But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.” – Psalm 86:15

Love you babe! Like, a lot. (In case you didn’t catch that…) ;)

Happy Monday! Until next time…

J O A N N A | flashback: mixin’ patterns

Remember that time I had a waist and wore cute clothes? Yeah, neither do I. Recently I found myself daydreaming of skinny jeans and being able to bend over… I CAN’T WAIT! The only thing I’ve shopped for in months are baby clothes and nursing bras. I don’t even go into the clothes section at Target when I’m there… I know it sounds unbelievable, but it’s just too depressing. I’m going to start watching the fall trends closely so I can be prepared, but until then, humor me a bit and let’s remember the good ol’ days… flashbackfriday_edited-1IMG_8559 (600x400)I have never been able to really pin point my style. I am kind of all over the place; preppy in J. Crew one day, boho chic in Urban Outfitters the next. I would, however, like to proudly declare that I am, in fact, very trendy. Yup. I love following the latest trends (no matter the genre) and seeking them out in my own closet or at T.J. Maxx… obviously. When I started spotting my favorite designers mixing patterns my heart skipped a beat. I was obsessed. I LOVE a bold pattern and finally the fashion gods were allowing me to wear more than one at a time! Praise! Seriously, just google “mixing patterns” and you will love the ladies (and gents) who are validating this trend and rock’n it!

K A T | crab cake recipe

One of the best things about staying in Pensacola is being so close to a fresh seafood market. We rarely dine out because we enjoy picking up fresh seafood and whipping up our own meals. A Rainwater family staple for us is crab cakes. My mom has been making these for years and she’s definitely got them mastered. If you’re craving some seafood mix up your dinner rotation and fix these tonight, you’ll be in crab cake heaven!

easy-crab-cake-recipe

Crab Cake Recipe | serves 4

:: 1/2 cup mayonnaise
:: 1 large egg, beaten
:: 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
:: 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
:: 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
:: 1 pound jumbo lump crab meat
:: 20 saltine crackers, crushed
:: 1/4 cup canola oil
:: lemon wedges

Step 1 | In a small bowl, whisk the mayonnaise with the egg, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and hot sauce until smooth.

Step 2 | In a bowl, lightly toss the crabmeat with cracker crumbs. Gently fold in the mayonnaise mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. *It’s important not to overmix!

Step 3 | Scoop the crab mixture into eight mounds and lightly pack into 8 patties. In a large skillet, heat the oil until it’s hot. Add the crab cakes and cook over moderately high heat until deeply golden and heated through, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the crab cakes to plates and serve with lemon wedges.

Tip: We typically complete steps 1- 2, then go ahead and prepare the crab cake patties the night before so they can refrigerate overnight.

C A S O N | wallpaper wednesday

wallpaper-wednesday_text

I have been a lover of designlovefest’s “Dress Your Tech” series for years! You can’t use stock wallpaper that comes with your phones, tablets, and laptops….you just can’t. At least not if you want to sit with us. (KIDDING!) So I decided to take a stab at it myself and design a few wallpapers for y’all! As I teach myself more and more about graphic design, it’s so fun to play around with patterns, textures, and colors. We’ll be adding personalized digital wallpaper in the coming months to When it Rains Paper but y’all might as well reap the benefits in the meantime while we are still playing around with it! Go ahead and spruce up your devices with a few patterns I’m absolutely crazy about right now!

A U D G E | on my radar: giving back

There’s a saying that it’s better to give than to receive, but what if you could do both at the same time? Lately I’ve been scoping out companies that have a powerful mission lighting their fire and doing what I can to get behind them. Sometimes, there are some major perks for me too! Cute tees, snazzy jewelry, you name it. But there is something extra special about being able to give… knowing that even that one small gesture might’ve bettered someone’s life in a small way. It’s enough to make you think twice about where your dollars go, and how to make them count the most! Here are a few little tribes of giving that I’ve been really digging lately… come, shop with me. ;)

S O  W O R T H  L O V I N G | I just recently ordered my first tee from them and can’t WAIT to get it in the mail! Reading up on their story and why they started, I just loved the encouragement oozing from every corner. Teaching people that they are, indeed, “so worth loving” regardless of whatever their life story is… that’s something we should definitely tell each other more often.

So Worth Loving

T H E  G I V I N G  K E Y S | These guys create jewelry with lost keys. They stamp these keys with inspirational words, and when you meet someone that you feel like needs the word that you have, you pass it along. What’s even better? They employ the homeless in L.A. that are struggling to get their feet back under them, giving them an opportunity to build work experience and to earn a fair wage so they can get their lives back on track. They’ve just recently partnered up with So Worth Loving (I just found out!) and made a “Worthy” key – so you can double dip!

T H A T  G R A C E  R E S T O R E D | For a dreamy line of handmade paper and letterpress goods, THIS is your shop. They make handmade journals, letterpress prints, and even super fancy-schmancy letterpress wedding invitations… ooh la la! That Grace Restored is actually a paid vocational development program for the non-profit Serenity’s Steps based right here in Atlanta that walks along side of women in the commercial sex industry, building authentic relationships and aiming to help see them to a point of self-sufficiency and to renew their personal dignity.  Their story is amazingly beautiful, and you should jump at any chance you can to get involved with them… I promise you won’t regret it.

That Grace Restored

L O V E  G I V E S  W A Y | If you’re planning a wedding, let this be your hub for all things vendors! They’re based in various cities across the U.S. (we’re one of them! YIPEE!) and the concept behind it is AH-mazing. It’s a community of wedding vendors who have all committed a portion of their earnings to a non-profit of their choice that’s fighting against sex-trafficking. So brides book vendors, who then give proceeds from that package to an organization most likely in their own home town… GENIUS. Talking about getting the “biggest bang for your buck”.. might as well make a difference with it, right? You can check out all of their Atlanta vendors here (I’m one of them too!), and Serenity’s Steps is actually one of the local causes tied in with them. It just keeps on getting better!

Love Gives Way

Hope you can find a way to stretch your dollars and make them reach corners of our own neighborhoods and cities that need the most love. If there are any other ones I’m missing, send them my way! I’m all about supporting a worthy cause, especially ones near and dear to home.

Happy Tuesday y’all! Until next time…

J O A N N A | gold lamp diy

image-2T-minus 4 weeks till baby… or with my luck, 5 to 6 weeks. ::sigh:: I am slowly but surely tackling all the little items on my to-do list. My priority for this past week was to get the nursery finished… and by finished I really just mean finally committing to things I’ve been debating for months. It’s finally coming together and I’m excited to be able to share some of it with you along the way.

Like this lamp re-do! Brett and I got this lamp as a wedding gift over 8 years ago and probably haven’t used it at all in at least 3 years. I have been meaning to consign it, but just haven’t gotten around to it. I’m so glad I didn’t because when I was looking for a lamp for the nursery this little gem popped into my head and I knew immediately that I wanted to use it. Lamps are expensive, y’all! I’m happy to have found something that saved us a couple bucks AND took very little effort. Double win. Check it out… 

IMG_0034

Gold Lamp Re-do 

:: news paper or drop cloth
:: painters tape
:: krylon white primer spray paint
:: krylon metallic gold spray paint
:: lamp shade
ImageImage-1

Step 1 | Prep! Use newspaper or a drop cloth to protect your work space and head outside, spray paint has tendency to travel. On the lamp itself, tape off anywhere you don’t want paint… especially the plug… duh.  

Step 2 | Prime! No need to go to heavy on the primer, I used it just to be sure the black wouldn’t show through.

Step 3 | Paint! Short and even strokes are the key… at least that’s what they say. 

A Beautiful Mess blog does SO many DIY projects so when it came to finding the perfect spray paint I went straight to their site for recommendations. I know this project isn’t rocket science, but I hope it at least gives you some inspiration to make old things new! After doing this I’m ready to re-paint everything in my house; Brett’s gonna hate it.  

IMG_0088

I love the way this lamp turned out… there will be gold accents around the nursery that it will tie in with perfectly. I can’t wait for everyone to see the finished product, stay tuned!

K A T | flashback friday: tips for shopping on etsy

Cason and I are almost done decorating our bedrooms. When we both moved in to our townhouse neither of us had what you would consider an “adult” room. I had pieces leftover from college and furniture that was in my room growing up. It’s taken me 6 years but I think I’m finally in love with the way my room turned out! From pillows to art work,  I decorated with a lot of pieces from Etsy and could not be happier with the products. Here are some tips I shared awhile ago to ensure you have great Etsy experience! (And don’t worry- Cason and I will reveal our rooms soon!)

flashbackfriday_edited-1

Long before Cason and I were selling paper products on Etsy, I was a huge fan of the site! It’s basically an online marketplace that allows you to buy handmade items from the comfort of your home. Anything you can possibly think of can be found here, from a dinosaur succulent planter to a piece of custom artwork. That said, Etsy can be a very overwhelming site, especially if you are a first time buyer. No worries! I’m here to help. Here are four tips to ensure you have a successful shopping experience with Etsy!

tips-for-shopping-on-etsy

1. shop location | I know this may seem really odd because location is not something you have to consider when shopping through major retailers like J.Crew. Etsy shops are literally all over the world. I will get into my online shopping zone (you know what I’m talking about) and order a cute bracelet for a friend’s birthday and then BAM, I get an email confirmation and notice the shop owner lives in Israel. Not only will that affect shipping costs but time as well. There is no way that bracelet is arriving in time for her birthday party next Friday. Etsy has so many great shops that I’m sure I could have found a similar one from a shop located in the United States. If you are in a hurry or need it in a specific time frame definitely make sure to check the location of a shop!

2. contact shop owner | In my opinion, one of the best features on Etsy is being able to message the sellers. It’s so personal (something you don’t get from large retailers) and you are able to work together to create something perfect. You can ask them anything from changing a font color on an invitation to creating a totally new custom design just for you. If you are confused by a picture or not sure of the size of an item, just ask! Shop owners don’t know that your wedding is in two weeks and you need your guest book stat! As a shop owner, we know exactly how long it’s going to take to make, produce, and ship out an item. Send them a message with your event date (or any other crazy question you have) to ensure you get your item on time and are happy with your purchase!

3. shop policies | Before ordering, make sure to read the shop policies. I know this may seem tedious but it’s very important. In this day and age with Amazon Prime and overnight shipping, people assume they can place an order for an item and it’ll be in the mail the next day. One of the benefits of shopping Etsy is that you are working with a small business. (There’s not a stock room full of ready-made items.) It could be someone hand sewing pillows out of their home. If they state that it takes 3 weeks to make the pillow, odds are, it’s going to take the full 3 weeks but the results will be totally worth it. You won’t have the same Ikea pillow everyone owns. (Guilty.) You’ll have something unique and customized just for you. It’s also really good to glance over return polices while looking through the shop policies just so you have an idea about returning items if you’re not happy.

4. read reviews | Take it from an Etsy shop owner- reviews are everything! Our customers are able to post their REAL thoughts on the items they received. We don’t get to pay them to say sweet things so I’d trust their opinion. Before you order anything on Etsy, ALWAYS read reviews! I recently needed cookies for Bupper Club and our usual cookie lady was booked up. I searched through Etsy and found some cookies I liked. Next step, I read through the reviews to see what people thought. She had over 1,000 reviews talking about how great her cookies are.  Sure enough, when they came in they looked great and tasted even better! Don’t let new shops scare you from ordering from them. If you find a shop that only has 9 reviews that could mean they just opened and you should definitely give them a chance. We’ve all got to start some where! [Side note: if you read one or two negative reviews on an item, I wouldn’t let that deter you. There are always going to be customers you can’t please. If 200 people say they love the sweater and 1 person says the sweater sucked, odds are it’s a pretty good sweater. The only time I steer clear of a shop is if I repeatedly see negative reviews on the same item.]

Does anyone else love shopping on Etsy? If you’ve never checked out the site- today is the day! (Warning: it can be very addicting.) All my Etsy shoppers, comment with any tips I might have left off. Happy Tuesday!

C A S O N | blueberry crumble recipe

summer-dessert-recipes

One of my favorite childhood pastimes was visiting my Grandmommy and Granddaddy (Dad’s parents) for a week during the summer. The first stop was always a dollar store. Kat and I were each given a $5 bill and pretty much let loose. The fact that I could walk away with FIVE NEW THINGS was mind blowing. Like…I was RICH. After blowing $5 in 30 minutes, the rest of our days were spent playing on their lake dock, dressing up in Grandmommy’s nightgowns and heels from the 50’s, and picking blueberries. We picked blueberries in their yard like it was going out of style! And I don’t think I’m exaggerating when I say, they sent us home with 20 freezer bags of blueberries every year. Mom’s solution to this motherload blueberry bounty? Freeze them and enjoy blueberry crumble all.year.long! Whenever I saw a bag of blueberries unthawing on the kitchen counter before church on Sunday morning, my day was made.

Blueberry Crumble

Ingredients:
:: 3 cups blueberries (fresh or frozen)
:: 6 tablespoons sugar
:: 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
:: 3/4 cup flour
:: 1/3 cup margarine (room temperature)
:: 6 tablespoons sugar
:: 1/2 teaspoon salt
:: vanilla ice cream

1 | Wash berries and put in buttered square baking dish. (I always spray with a little cooking spray just to be safe.) Sprinkle 6 tablespoons of sugar and cinnamon on top.

2 | In a separate bowl, combine room temperature margarine, 6 tablespoons sugar, and salt. Mix with your fingertips or fork until crumbly. Sprinkle over the blueberry mixture.

Easy-blueberry-cobbler-recipe

3 | Bake 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream!

blueberry-crumble-dessert

I’m sorry I am just now sharing this with you because it might be one of my favorite desserts of all time! My grandparents have both passed away but every time I make a blueberry crumble it reminds me of them and our summer memories.
