Signing Off!

My sweet mom is getting remarried this weekend in Myrtle Beach so I'm off for an entire week!
I'll leave you with some pictures I took at our recent trip to Santa Cruz.  It was my first time to Northern California and I was dying over the beautiful flowers and plants.  Can you say eye candy?

Balloon Invitation

I thought this was fitting not only because it's a darling idea, but because I've been working on a couple of birthday invitations lately...and it's Friday and what's better than balloons!  I recently discovered Brooke Reynolds blog "Inchmark".  She created the balloon invitations below and her blog is full of thoughtful and creative ideas.  It's one of my new favorites.
This particular invitation, along with confetti, was rolled up inside a helium filled balloon and then delivered to each individual.  Genius.

Baby Elena

I recently designed these announcements.  I can't get over how darling she is, check out that hair!

Vintage Jamie

I've been meaning to post about Vintage Jamie for awhile now.  I have a few of her pillows and simply adore them.  They're made of linen and cotton, and are about as cute and cuddly as can be.

want it, gotta have it.

I was at Anthro today and I spotted this jacket.  My birthday is coming up and I might just have to drop some hints about it.  Beige leather jacket, what's not to love?

I haven't had a real vacation in quite awhile.  I mean, we've taken lots of long weekends for friend's weddings (which is great and I'm happy to do it), but I'm craving some real vacay time.  Norm and I have started planning our honeymoon (!) and this is what I've been staring at all day.  I'm practically drooling over my keyboard here people.
Our trip will start in Positano, Italy, then we're off to Rome, Tuscany and Florence.
May can't come soon enough.
Any recommendations would be appreciated!
Well, I just noticed this- judging by my pictures, it looks like I'm looking forward to the food more than anything else!

I'm Back!

I took a little break from blogging as my summer has been incredibly busy.  My apologies for the silence, but I'm back and ready to share my inspiration and projects with you!

I recently hosted my good friend's bridal shower.  It was diy all the way from the favors and decoration to the yummy treats we served.
I made these fill-in-the-blank cards for everyone to fill out about Nicole.  I found this, among other ideas, at 100 Layer Cake.

We made personalized tags for the pink candy given as favors...

Handmade tissue flowers...I think these help brighten up any party.  Here are directions.  They were much bigger than I figured they'd be, use 8.5x11 if you want smaller flowers.
