I just wanted to quickly wish my husband a very happy birthday today!!! He’s the sweetest man I’ve ever known and I am so fortunate to have met and married him. Please join me in sending my cutie pie bountiful birthday wishes! I love you Joseph and Happy Birthday! xoxo

Back in a bit with a new Well Branded, stay tuned!




I’m so excited to be guest blogging over on Sweet Designs today! Amy Atlas has been a huge inspiration to me over the years so I was completely honored to provide a picnic inspired DIY project for her site. You can see my paper chopstick holders and get full instructions on how to make the custom paper napkins right here.

Thanks so much to Amy for having me and I hope you all get a chance to get outdoors and enjoy a meal outside! Cheers!




Update: Oops! Added the links!

I am so excited to share today’s post with you. A few months ago, Ty Mattson gave me a sneak peek his son’s birth announcements and I have been giddy with anticipation to post them. Well he finally mailed these out to his lucky friends and family so we can now all appreciate them as well!

Ty used two colors to letterpress these circus themed announcements and the red/blue combination brilliantly overlaps to create the third darker color. Every last detail of this birth announcement is perfection and I can’t imagine a more cheerful design to celebrate the birth of a son. Congratulations to Ty, his wife and their new bundle of joy!




Speaking of gardening, how about this beautifully inspired collection of crochet covered rocks?! The juxtaposition of the delicate crochet and the stones is breath taking and perfectly serene. Created by Margaret Ooman, I discovered her while scouting through the Flickr Garden Glam Set and coming across an image influenced by her work.

The quote “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.” from Frank Lloyd Wright is the inspiration behind Margaret’s work. See more of her amazing collection on her Flickr page and Etsy Shop and follow her work on her blog; Resurrection Fern.




Flower Grenades

These flower grenades from Suck UK take guerilla gardening to the next level. Just throw a couple of these at the nearest urban blight and with a little rain and luck, you can expect to see an explosion of wild flowers in a few weeks!
