INSPIRATION BOARDS | Color Palette: Right in Between Some Blue and Some Green…

Totally in love with these two sets of dreamy shots by one fabulous board creator, Niki :D.  Of the first set, I’m obsessed with the goldfish shot, and the color of that fence in the upper right-hand corner makes my brain tingle with joy.  Truly brilliant coloring tends to have that effect on me.  (Yeah, [...]

Cutely packaged cupcakes + Lemon frozen yogurt and raspberry pops (reminds me of how I sometimes call my dad “Popsicle”) + Design exercise for your brain (brings me back to my earliest drawings, which always started w/ some random squiggle on a blank page… inside of my history notebook… while spacing out in class) + [...]

While combing flickr for some stellar inspiration, I lucked into finding this brilliant set of photographs by flag75*, each one more colorful and intriguing than the next.  They remind me of that game segment from one of those late night talk shows – the name of which I can’t recall at the moment – that [...]

WEDDING FAVORS LOVE | colorful, lovely, fabulous favor inspiration | All Hail Rebecca Thuss

I have admired Rebecca Thuss from afar for quite a long stretch now.  When it comes to swoon-worthy, she is, in my estimation, a genius.  Upon a visit to Rebecca’s site, one finds this menu: Now, I can speak only for myself, but you might agree with me when I say that this short, sweet [...]

ETSY SPOTLIGHT ♥ “Just Married” Isn’t Just for the Rear Window Anymore…

Surfing around on the Etsy wave one day, I happened upon Ashley’s shop.  In my opinion, her sterling silver jewelry is, as my two year old nephew likes to say, “oooh, so cute.”  (He’s clearly parroting us, especially if you could hear the inflection in his voice when he says those words – it’s… well, [...]

TYPOGRAPHY LOVE | uniquely crafted caps by jessica hische | I Bet You’re Going to LOVE Your Initials After You Read This

. LOVE TYPOGRAPHY.  Now, I know I say “I love” about a lot of things – but with Typography, I mean it. *** If Typography had been a character on Saved by the Bell, it would have been Zack Morris (I realize it would make more sense as Jessie Spano, but… c’mon).  And, if asked [...]

FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS ♡ Part 1 | Etsy Bitsy Favorites | hey… psst… I stare at you sometimes

Occasionally, I’ll go to my Favorites page on Etsy, just to take a lingering look at what I’ve accumulated. For example, I favorited Etsy shop owner sarahparrott825, because she has the most precious thing going.  She calls it, “Press & Post,” which she describes as “a monthly delivery of one letterpress card complete with a [...]
