Sorry I’ve been so MIA lately… with the holidays quickly approaching, I’ve been super busy. At any given time, this is what my desk looks like: I have a big table in my dining room, but I like working on my desk… even though it is a tiny space! These were Christmas cards that my […]

holiday cards and labels

It is that time of the year! Time to send out Holiday cards!! I think it is always fun to make your own cards. I bought my Holiday cards after Crhsitmas last year from Paper Source, so I did not make mine this year, (I did make my mom’s though!), so I wanted to add a […]

paper and cake

I came across this cake on Martha Stewart Weddings and my heart stopped… it combines my two favorite things: paper and cake. Enjoy!

rubber stamp note cards

Ever since the Paper Source opened around the corner, I have probably been in there over 100 times… actually more like 500 but that’s besides the point. Anyway, I have fallen in love with their rubber stamps and stamping accessories. I used their embossing tools to create shiny daisies on Rachel’s wedding programs. They have […]

I stumbled upon a new blog that I really like – it is by Erin Vale of Vale Designs. Her artistic style is much like mine – hence why I probably like everything she does. Another cool thing about her blog is that she posts DIY projects. Here are some address labels she’s made: I […]
