Please Do Not Disturb

I made these cute do not disturb door hangers for the out of town guest bags at my wedding.
These could work for any kind of late night party. Alternatively, they would be adorable for a baby's door if you substitute out the "I partied all night" and skulls with "its nap-time" and rubber duckies or sheep.

To create these, I used
khaki cover weight paper from Paper Source, a skull stamp, clear embossing powder, and watermark stamp pad all also from Paper Source, an exacto knife and cutting mat, 1/8" hole punch and 1/4" brown grosgrain ribbon.

Tutorial to follow soon.

We did it! Such a fun weekend, I wish I could go back and relive it all over!! My friend Leslie sent me this cute photo. Now that the obsessing over details is over, I can obsess over photos, yay!!!

Cupcake Party

I still love cupcakes. I know they seem trendy right now but I think cupcakes are timeless. So, wouldn't a cupcake party be fun?! Love this invite. I think it would take a few more scrabble tiles to spell out my age than that though...

Monday Morning Coasters

Am trying to figure out how to work mimosas into my monday mornings. If I could, I would definitely need these coasters. Also, not that I would ever trade any of my friends for anything in the world, but this is funny.

Repurposed with a purpose

I need this in my kitchen! I love that the "shelf" is repurposed and that you can see through it. Plus, I am obsessed with the idea of hanging our pots and pans, as opposed to stacking them in our currently not fabulous cabinet situation. Check out more flea market storage ideas from this article I found on Grey Likes Nesting. I especially like this birdcage as mail holder!

Pretty Placecards

via Martha

How pretty are these fruit and pinwheel seating cards? The fruit is so natural looking and earth friendly and the pinwheels so whimsical, fun and emphasize an outdoor setting. I need to have a party soon so I can make some!

Friday Flowers from the Farmer's Market

These happy sunflowers are from last Saturday at Green City Market. Its been such a funny cold summer that this seemed like the first time the market was in full swing. Have a great weekend!

1st Birthday Party

I came across this adorable little boy's birthday party decor on Twig & Thistle. Love it all, from the welcome lifesavers to the flags and hats! Am guessing that all of this will be much more appreciated by the parents than the 1 year olds, but it sure has the makings of a festive party for all! Of course the invitations to the party were awesome and on theme as well.

Something Blue

I walked by Banana yesterday and thought I'd go see if they had any new jewelry in, plus was curious about the Mad Men Casting Call poster in the window. Am really into the show right now, getting through Season 2 on dvd to be ready for the new one on August 16th.
Anyway back to the jewelry... They usually have fun rings and never too expensive. On my way in the store, something sparkling caught my eye mixed into the clutch display... blue jeweled hairclips and pins. Perfect. I have been putting off this whole something blue bit since there is not a speck of blue elsewhere in my wedding. Done.

Marimekko for Crate and Barrel

I am really digging this duvet cover and sham set in cool blues and purples. I have always liked Marimekko prints and Crate has had some great ones lately.
