Office Space

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. This weekend was beautiful and sunny in NJ and we spent most of our time assembling our new patio set that we got from Target. We got the gazebo to go with it and a fire pit too. I love it and I cannot wait for the weather to warm up enough for us to sit outside and enjoy it. I can easily see it becoming my new "office" in the summer.

New!! Communion or Baptism Invitations

I recently made these invitations for a favorite client of mine and I fell in love the felt texture paper I used, it's a new favorite! You can find this invitation in my Etsy Shop or my Artfire Shop.

Cool Timer

I came across this free download a few months ago and have been using it every day, so I thought I'd pass the info along to my very busy readers. If you are anything like me, you are always looking for ways to manage your time more effectively. This little timer really helps.
The free download is from Harmony Hollow Software and is available here: Cool Timer
I use the stopwatch feature to time how long projects take me. And if I need to remind myself to do something at a specific time, or if I only want to work on a task for a specific amount of time, I'll set the alarm feature and stop when it goes off. Hope you get good use out of it too!

Aqua & Fuchsia Wedding Inspiration

I'm currently working on wedding programs for a very nice bride that are aqua and fuchsia. I'm so happy to see that this color combo is hot right now. Pink is always a favorite of mine, and this color combo is so bright and cheery.Photo Credits: 1. Aqua & Fuchsia Ceremony 2. Fuchsia Signature Cocktails 3. Aqua & Fuchsia Table Setting 4.

The Man Registry

A friend of mine pointed me in the direction of the coolest website, The Man Registry. It’s a website specifically designed for the groom to be. Now your sweetie can register for things he will actually get excited about (no china or towels here). And he can find great tips and advice on the planning process that won’t make him glaze over, like how to pick out a tux and choosing the bridal party. Simply brilliant!

A Sign of Spring!

I was so excited to notice that my tulips are starting to poke their way up through the dirt! I forget about them every year, and every year when they start popping up, it makes me smile.

Place Cards Now Available!

I've had many requests for place cards, and although I do make them, I have just gotten around to listing them. I do provide other place card designs, shapes and sizes, I'll be listing them in the very near future. You can find these on my website and in both my Etsy and ArtFire Shops.

Signs of Spring

Even though it snowed more overnight then it has snowed all winter here in NJ, I'm still excited that we turned the calendar to March because March is when Spring begins! I'll just keep reminding myself, March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. And I'll continue to look for signs of Spring once all this snow melts!

For now, I will look for signs online. I found these cute Spring inspired earrings in one of my favorite Etsy shops: La Di Da.
