sticky notes + portsmouth

i'm totally obsessed with cool sticky pads at the moment. when i was in portsmouth, new hampshire last week, i found a bunch of stores that carried creative note pads. i wanted to take every single one of them home with me! the portsmouth area is very concentrated on buying local, supplying local, and promoting local products. it was refreshing and i felt great about buying fruits and veggies from local farmers and coffee and lunch from local business owners. i wish philadelphia would get the clue! here are a couple awesome sticky pads that i have found around the inter-webs.

a few of my favorite...

here are a few of my favorite websites. i always find great ideas and inspiration in the folds and corners of these sites. i seem to get lost for hours and resurface with way too many projects i want to do, but i love it. enjoy!

keep it simple

keeping your stationery, wedding theme, and decor simple can allow your true personality and refinement to show through. take a look at these two items i designed for my sister.

bridal shower invites

personal stationery with ants

sometimes i need to remind myself to keep it simple, especially when it comes to packing! i'm headed to the oxford this weekend. hopefully i'll find some good stuff to blog about! stay tuned...

be who you are. follow your heart.

i'm back!!!

with the support and love of my family and friends, i have decide to live my dream. to be a creator. a crafter. an artist. i quit my job at Two Paperdolls and decided to take the jump. to start my own business and follow my heart.

it began with the book, The Alchemist, given to me by my sister for Christmas and finished with my husband asking me, "what are you waiting for?" so here i am, the master of my own future.

i will be blogging every day (or almost every day), designing, creating decor, and most of all loving life. hope you join me on my journey!

*a big, dinosaur-size thank you to everyone who is helping me make this dream a reality!*
