Howdy Partner!


Okay, I grabbed this inspiration board from one of my favorite blogs: The Perfect Palette. I love this blog because it's all about color inspiration, providing wedding color combinations with collage's to match. This one I just love...I hope one of my friends decided to have a HoDown Wedding! Check out the site here.

Yay! Another Wedding!


Just when I started feeling a little sad that all my Wedding festivities were over...my cousin Jacin got engaged!!! And she asked me to be in her Wedding.. I am so excited to do it all over again with her in the spotlight! Her Wedding will be next September or October in Guilford, Connecticut. She started a blog so all her friends and family can watch her through the planning process, check it out here: http://jacinandpat.blogspot.com/

Some Balloon History!




Balloons—in one form or another—have been around for centuries. But the modern latex balloon—the kind you can blow up yourself—was invented in New England during the Great Depression.

A chemical engineer, frustrated in his attempts to make inner tubes from this new product—liquid latex—scrawled a cat’s head on a piece of cardboard and dipped it in the latex. When it dried, Neil Tillotson had a “cat balloon,” complete with ears. He made about 2,000 balloons and sold them on the street during Boston’s annual Patriot Day parade.

In the late 1970s, silver metalized balloons were developed for the New York City Ballet. These balloons are commonly called Mylar, but they are actually made from a metalized nylon and are more expensive than latex balloons.

Now you know!

It's My Birthday!


thank you all for your wishes!!!

I have an Etsy Shop!


Okay, first of all don't get too excited...it's still in the making, but YES I just opened an Etsy shop. I received such nice feedback when I posted my save-the-date and people seemed really interested. On the listing I have the image of my save-the-date but this will be a custom product tailored to each buyer. Each piece of stationery will have special and unique pictures that are close to them, make them laugh, or even photographs. No two pieces will look alike... this is going to be fun, check out my (tiny) Etsy shop here: MY SHOP!!! And I will keep you posted when I add more items. ;-) Happy Friday!

custom work for my big day!





I hired Lara Brehm, a freelance artist to illustrate a picture of my family (my then husband-to-be, Bean, our pug, and Wally, our bug!) I worked with Lara through emails and I sent her pictures and told her all about us. She looked at my blog and got to know me better... with that information she custom designed a very special piece for me. It was also my Wedding Day gift to John, my husband! Check out Lara's awesome work on her blog: http://larabrehm.blogspot.com/
