Daily Candy beat me to it!  They featured Up in the Air Somewhere a couple days ago in the Chicago edition!  I totally thought wedding centerpieces and wedding registry gifts when I saw these items!  To die for!  I’m a big fan of neutrals and hand-made ceramics.  You have to check out their paper vessels, especially the gold.

Once Wed – Designer Wedding Dresses For Less!

Happy Friday everyone!!  Today’s extra special because I have a guest blogger – Emily, owner of Once Wed! Brides looking for dresses – this is your day!  Be sure to check out her site for creative diy wedding projects as well!                                                                         …

Once Wed grew out of my own frustration with trying to sell a wedding dress online, so I decided to launch my own listing service where women can list and search for wedding gowns for FREE.  6 months later we have over 700 “designer wedding dresses for less” in our database and receive new, sample, and used wedding gown listings on a daily basis.  Many of our gowns include designer labels such as Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Melissa Sweet and Reem Acra 50% OFF their original retail prices.   (more…)

Absolutely delightful!  Sarah, owner of Cursive Design, had the sunniest booth during the super rainy day!! Lots of warm colors!  I was immediately drawn to her twiggums!  Forever flowers made out of recycled paper vellum to keep your home or apartment dreary-free!  Just add them to your favorite twigs at home or wedding centerpieces!  Check out her site for more!

Without a doubt, Kindling was one of my favs at Renegade!!  The shapes, use of natural surroundings and simplicity drew me completely in.  Automatically, I thought what incredible wedding reception centerpieces but even better – I need one for myself!  Check out their etsy shop! (more…)

Good morning!  The amount of hair accessories at Renegade were in the low numbers, surprisingly.  I was hoping to see more feathers and textures…however, a big smile popped up on my face when I saw Belinda’s hair accessories!  Belinda collects stamps and various paper textures to form these lovely hair barrettes.

Holiday Portraits & Photographs!

I hate to be the one to bring this up….but with summer almost over it’s time to get in gear for the holidays!  Ok, I admit….I am SO not ready but the planner that I am, I’d like to help all of you out!  It’s time to start thinking and doing.  Photographs make the best gifts and cards!  Book a casual photography session with your favorite people or pets and let the images say it best.  The best is to book a photographer now so there is plenty time for production and card/print ordering, especially if you plan on sending out many holiday cards.  You’ll need time to write and ship.  Keep your photos simple and theme free for timeless use or add some holiday humor – be creative!  Most photographers offer all the products needed to make your prints and cards extra special!  I’m booking sessions now until end of November for the holiday deadline- contact me for more info and pricing!
