Custom & One of a Kind: Daisy Lane Design

I have fallen in LOVE with the custom products from Daisy Lane Design! I just love her stuff. Yes, I said love twice. On purpose.  And there’s a surprise at the end for you.  From me & Allison, the owner of Daisy Lane Design.

We are very passionate about Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey. We’ve taken it twice in less than a year as table leaders. The Huzz and I are passionate about living debt free and helping others learn how to get a handle on their finances.

Last spring when we started FPU, I finally went back to using the envelope system. I used white paper envelopes. They worked. They got ratty. I wasn’t so thrilled pulling out my envelopes when paying. Not that I cared that much, but still, I knew there was something nicer out there.

Enter Pinterest. Daisy Lane Design caught my eye. I decided to “like” her Facebook page. Allison’s work on Facebook piqued my interest. So I commented on a photo asking questions and thus it all began.

Allison is amazing! I asked LOTS of questions. Probably too many. And I changed my mind… a few times on the colors. Allison worked with me and created a beautiful and custom cash envelope system for me. I loved the custom flowers on the outside of the pouches, but as a southerner, I wanted something monogrammed on the bag instead. Allison was very accommodating and well, check it out for yourself:

I was like a giddy little child when I received my custom cash envelope system. I immediately broke out my label maker and labeled each cash envelope. Isn’t this gorgeous? I mean, really!!!

Now I love pulling out my beautiful custom envelope system when paying. No more ratty old white envelopes! The pouch has organized my purse beautifully. I ordered the larger pouch with 9 cash envelopes. I only needed 7, so I made one envelope for receipts. (Does anyone else have 5 million receipts floating around your purse? Is it just me???) So now all of my receipts go straight into an envelope. Yes!

I have a giganto backpack purse. I do love it because I can fit, like, EVERYTHING under the sun in it. But sometimes, I want something a little smaller. Date nights, girl’s night out, a quick trip to Target… y’all know what I mean, right?

Then Allison made a beautiful new cash envelope system, posted it on her Facebook page and I drooled. I mean, I wanted it. The little girl inside of me had to have it. Thankfully, I had some budgeted fun money and it went straight to my next Daisy Lane Design purchase.

Here’s what sets Daisy Lane Design apart from the rest. I messaged her and told her how much I loved the gray and coral pouch, but wanted it as a purse. A messenger style purse. With a detachable strap. And oh yeah, it needs to be able to hold 2 EpiPens (4 total- one set for SG and one set for me.) And oops- the EpiPens are too tall for my current pouch. Can you make it a little taller? And can you put the state of South Carolina on it?

Allison created my very own custom purse. And I received it today. And y’all, I LOVE it! It is so fabulous!

Can you tell from the wall color and desk color that I love coral and gray?

See how perfectly our EpiPens fit inside my bag? They used to jostle around in my big purse.  Now they are snug and still.  Easy accessibility is a must with EpiPens.  I also have two cash envelopes, my iPhone, a little tube of vaseline and my driver’s license tucked away in a cash envelope.

These EpiPens are not budging or moving.

To be true to my roots, I must say I’m tickled pink with my new purse! I love that I can zip around town here in Iowa, while carrying a little reminder of my home state with me.

I also ordered two custom make up bags.  One was for my mother-in-law, who lives in TN.  The other was for my sister-in-law, who lives in Ohio.   These turned out amazing!
