Paper Goods and Wedding Bells

It's wedding season! Anyone else having a hard time finding just the right stationary for your special day? As I'm browsing sites I can't help but feel like what I'm finding is almost perfect, or I'd love it only if I could change one little thing about it...

I was shopping minted.com today for other paperie goodies {personalized stationary to be exact} and I came across their new day planners. You can customize them with your pictures and/or your name, and you have the choice of weekly or monthly organization. Or, opt out of the planning inserts and make yourself a custom notebook or address book! This is the cover that got me thinking about wedding stationary:
Cute, right? I plan to order this as a notebook for planning purposes so I can jot down ideas as I see them.

Here's what I found for save-the-dates that caught my eye: {these are magnets!}


I unintentionally picked out two wedding invites that happen to match them too!


Swoon! They are perfection. I've ordered a sample of each to help me decide between the two sets because right now they have a coupon code {10FREE} for 10 free samples!

{DIY} Spring Art

Happy April! Spring has sprung and Easter is right around the corner! I was working on some Spring cleaning yesterday when I decided that going to Target would be more fun {duh!} The Target 'dollar spot' is my favorite department to hunt through- there's always something crafty or handy at a great bargain! I walked away with some washi tape, gift tags, and a few other things that I "needed"... Afterwards I just had to go to TJMaxx to spend my reward. Michael's {the craft store} is just next door to TJMaxx, and though I rarely stop in, I thought: "why not?"

And that's when I found these..... {for only $1.50 each!}


Aren't they cute? Macarons, glitter, pastels... Perfect for Spring! They were so pretty that I thought, why not frame them?


I grabbed a few empty frames that I had boxed away and some 'dollar spot' finds to embellish with.


I used the original frame insert {just flipped around} as my background since it was already the right size for the frame, and played around with the layout using the card and it's envelope for color contrast.


Viola! A few minutes of fun turned into some cute art for my desk this season!

Blush & Burgundy

A color combo that I have been loving lately is blush pink and burgundy. It's perfect for the Winter to Spring transitional period!

Contrary to the appearance, it was not warm today! The sun was shining but it was still a chilly WA day. This tree behind me was covered with pretty pink blooms that would have beautifully accented my outfit but the wind blew them all away before I could photograph! If you can't tell, gold has become my go-to neutral. It looks great with everything!
