udpate



This weekend was really great, I threw a tea party for my niece's birthday.



On Sunday we went shopping for my sister's dress, she is my matron of honour. I told her she could choose anything she liked, so long as it was a jewel tone. We chose this beautiful dress from Ann Taylor, this photo is cheesy, but on her, it looks great. She chose some great red satin peep-toe d'orsay pumps with that, ahhh, so pretty.

Design Sponge Sneek Peak

Thanks Grace and Anne for the sneek peak, I feel so special :)

DIY invites!


Yeah, wedding invites are fun! I didn't have time to have them printed, so I made them myself, but I didn't want to spend too much so I got some invites and paper from SamFlax and lined their kinda looser envelopes with a Paris map theme, (since our venue is a French restaurant) to kinda beef them up.

The actual invites are a plain ivory card with a blind emobssed wreath on the top, the best ones I could find, I did only look in one store though, shame on me. I printed them, with our initials inside the wreath, sooo easy. I used Didot, not that you can tell in these photos, but I heart Didot...

And I had soo much fun with stamps, I am an ebay stamp expert now, every night after work I take out the stamps and get to work, I can't remember having so much fun! I even stamped and addressed my thank yous already, yikes.

Oh, the coolest thing so far, I bought an embosser with our initials, (for after we get married) and I used it to personalize some simple but classic Cranes cards, (thank you cards, don't you know) so they look really understated but cool now, plus, I can buy any stationary I want and personalize...I admit, quite a bit our our mail had been "personalized" I got that thing in the mail and started stamping away!

A cave of my own....


So my dad has this way of dealing with life changing issues...he simplifies. When I was moving out for the first time, struggling to find a decent place to live, and feeling homesick once I did, my dad said, "This is life, you live in our cave until you are ready to find a cave of your own..." just like cavemen...hm. So, now I have my own cave...and I share it with O. Ok, still, we need caves of our own inside our cave, this is getting kinda crazy. Anyway, THIS would be my cave...(in the cave...you get it.)


I have dreams of making a my office like this...I had this idea when I moved my office into a smaller room, it would be perfect, and I can have my own cave drawings....

via apartment therapy, via the Times....
