I believe I found you in this outrageously fabulous tent. Will I ever have you in this outrageously fabulous tent… more then likely no… but I can dream. So just in case, I have picked out a few things… you know, if we win the lottery or something.
I’m pretty sure it is safe to say, you will never happen. I will never stand on the podium with my hand on my heart singing our countries national anthem with a shiny gold medal hanging from my neck. I however, can get my very own shiny medals in my very own unique way… so while I may not be fast, quick or strong… I can certainly be stylish.
What am I going to do with you?! You are white as a ghost and not looking very summery in the least. Good think I am obsessing over maxi skirts right now… I’m saving you some serious ghost like embarrassment.
Looks like I will soon be filling you with delicious treats… just not the edible kind. After recently finding Garnish, and all the amazing packaging options they have for foods and more… I have been dreaming of packing my pantry shelves with strawberry boxes and milk containers… just in case. You never know when I feel like baking breads or tasty delights to deliver to a friend. And let’s face it… everything tastes better when it is wrapped up pretty.
Listen you and me need to talk… after the whole three hour table cloth fiasco at Easter… you just aren’t working for me anymore. This summer, I’m going to be putting you away and going the chic and easy route… kraft paper. Don’t be mad… you must have seen this coming… who wouldn’t break up after you burned me and decided to put up such a fight with those wrinkles. It’s better this way… I’d like to say “it’s not you, it’s me” but truthfully… IT IS YOU!
Can we PLEASE get on board with the fashion of fascinators?! With all this Queen’s Jubilee business, Duchess Kate is out and about once again wearing her lovely headpiece frocks and I’m reminded how much us Americans are missing out on this fabulous accessory. So let’s go U.S.A… how about a little hair accessory to brighten your day?!
I was hoping you could magically increase in size so that I can refurnish my living room with these dreamy pieces from Calypso Home. And if you could put a little extra in there for a new couch – that would be great!
Since the moment I found out I was pregnant, I began to stress over the birth announcement. Let’s face it… owning a stationery boutique and being a graphic designer gives me every option in the world… letterpress, duplexing, liners, envelopes and more. I literally have every option and print method at my fingertips and I knew family and friends were waiting to see what I was going to do. Frankly, the pressure was on and I had to deliver (the baby and the announcement… ha ha ha). There was two things I knew for sure… I wanted to include an animal of sorts (since her nursery has a baby animal theme) and I wanted gold foil. Now I had to design them…
So, first I called my stationery BFF, Dabney Lee and asked to use her Dumbo and Lattice patterns. Then I designed a simple and sweet announcement with the piece de resistance being Piper’s photo taken by Twinkle Twinkle Images. Next up was sending my file over to Real Card Studio, my go to vendor for special projects and the results was a perfect triple duplex announcement with gold foil and metallic envelopes… I couldn’t have been happier. And with matching stationery to complete the set… I was off to the mailbox in no time!
Get read for a workout because I am now obsessed with this tutorial for a sock bun. Even though I have watched the video below 10 times… I am still trying to master the technique. Maybe this will help tone you up just a bit!
You just got a whole lot luckier, because my go-to baby gift, dolls by Blah Blah Kids… just got a heck of a lot cuter (if that is even possible). These adorable knit creatures now have adorable little costumes to dress them up in and with choices like baker, bird and pirate… I’m not sure which to get first! So heads up all you mamas in my life… pretty sure a little knit costumed guy is in your future.
