I just adore these DIY Baby Shower Invitations by the talented Edyta Szyszlo. Created for her friend, I especially love the fruit stripe envelope liner and the custom silhouettes. Also, make sure to check out the photos form the event, Edyta did such an amazing job!




Serene Green

April 4th, 2011 | 8 Comments »

With Spring around the corner, I have dreams about redecorating my entire house. Maybe a serene space with hues of  green throughout like these images from photographer Polly Wreford. There is such a sense of vibrancy and cleanliness all while being relaxed and calming.

How about you, any plans to update or renovate for spring? We’re saving up for a new kitchen so no big plans to remodel soon, but some day…




Michi Shop

Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts the past two days but WordPress went bonkers and my husband/IT guy was out of town. Anyway everything is fixed and I return you to your regularly scheduled programing:

Thanks to Oh Joy, I came across Michi and am utterly smitten! Kat Macleod is the genius behind this charming shop stocked with colorful little gems. I didn’t know I needed a set of colorful carpenter pencils but now I do! And a cute tote that reads “thanks very michi” – you bet! Even her watercolor postcards have me sprung!

I admittidely buy products based on packaging. As a designer, I can’t help it. All the bottles in my shower have to match even down to the bar of soap! Maybe that’s a little more OCD than designer but I like to to call it “coordinating”. Either way, I’m constantly on a look out for pretty pieces.

Unfortunetly Bloom Organics isn’t available in the states but I can still appreciate the lovely packaging! Designed by Mahon & Band in Australia, the use of botanical illustrations is striking but appropriately elegant and refined for a beauty product line. I particularly love the added twine detail to the soaps!




Hi Friends and happy Monday! I thought I’d start the week off with a DIY project that I created for larger events like weddings, showers or anything that requires multiple tables. Instead of traditional numbered cards I thought it would be fun to number the napkins instead. They make for a striking presentation that your guests are sure to remember. The template comes in black but can be easily customized by changing the color of the napkin.

Complete instructions and step-by-step photos after the break.
