Oh, hello again! I didn’t see you there. Back for thirds, I see. Well, you’re in for some good news, buddy. I think it’s safe to say I’ve had a 1 – 2 – 3 PUNCH of post prettiness as far as pretty posts go these days. (If I do say so myself.) And my excitement level about this third one is off the charts…
Speaking of charts (yeah, I just did that), how perfect are these for getting in the Valentine’s Day spirit? They’re Love Charts, loosely and lovingly adapted from your typical doctor’s eye chart… AND I LOVE THEM.
I have these free printables, but I haven’t yet created something as darling as this satchel (above) I discovered while flipping through designinglee‘s photostream (which I found while perusing some craft photostreams – talk about inspiration overload, by the way).
Look what else she did with it! This girl is officially one of my soul sistas.
I know you want to know how to get your hands on this, and I’m excited to tell you! Good relationship, we have here. It’s from ink-bloom! Go ahead, check them out. You get the free printable when you sign up for their emails!!! I am so plugging them for free right now. How nice am I?
So, I hope y’all are having yourselves a fabulous Friday thus far. However, if that’s not exactly how you’d describe your day, then I’m betting this will cheer you right up…
I found this remarkably beautiful, drool-inducing Valentine’s Day dessert buffet – created by the amazing Amy Atlas – during what turned out to be a very exciting visit to the ultimate foodie mecca, Hostess with the Mostess.
Those My Valentine heart cookies are perfection!
Loving these rock candy sticks and meringue cookies:
Ahh. A pink and gray heaven. I just wanna live inside of it.
… But first, I want one of those cuppies with the keys on top!
Next up is pure photographic beauty.
FORM OF: wedding desserts, drinks and decor. TAKEN BY: Amelia Lyon.
I’m a big fan of Amelia Lyon’s work. I’ve featured her before, in one of my favorite wedding photography posts so far.
And now, a little Bakerella love…
Wanna give someone in your life a big ol’ KISS? Let me recommend Bakerella’s Hershey-but-actually-Oreo Kisses! It’s a sort of hybrid delight, that you’re gonna like. I guarantee it. But I can’t guarantee you’re gonna like the way you look if you eat too many. So make sure you give ‘em away, mostly.
Isn’t this super? They look like Hershey’s Kisses… they act like Hershey’s Kisses… but they taste like… well I don’t know what they taste like because I haven’t yet made them. But the answer’s probably good.
Take a trip on over to Bakerella, and try your hand at these Kiss-tastic treats.
Hey, guess what?
HERE’S ONE MORE!
A pretty printable – for freeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
These beautiful DIY favor labels are sooooo perfect if you place them on one of my favorite things in the whole wide world: brown paper bags! (Yes, you’re right – I’m easily pleased.)
I found these printable labels on Flights of Fancy, a lovely blog brought to you by the Betsywhite Stationery Boutique. It’s focus is on – you guessed it – wedding stationery. GOT TO LOVE that.
Here are the tools you’ll need to make your own:
- brown paper lunch bags from the grocery store (if you go to Michael’s you’ll find them, too, but they’re a little bit pricier than those at the grocery store)
- a ruler
- an x-acto knife (there’s probably one in your office’s supply closet; shh, I didn’t say that)
- a bone folder
- Double-sided tape or Duck Easy-Stick® Double Stick Adhesive
Note: Flights of Fancy recommends the Easy-Stick for this project.
I think that’s enough for today. I hope you’re feeling full in the belly with all that edible inspiration!
Alright, here’s me wishing you only the happiest of Fridays, dear friends. You’re gonna love what I’ve got for you next time. Oooohhh you are gonna LOVE IT!!!
