Holiday Decor "Pinspiration"

By Amanda Mackell
on November 28, 2012

With December only a few days away I've been hitting Pinterest for some new and clever decor ideas. There are so many wreaths I'd like to make, but I do only have one door that anyone would see it on, and then there are the ornaments, paper trees.... you get the idea. Here are a few of my absolute favorites so far: This dried fruit wreath made from orange and lemon slices. Fragrant, and it steps away from the traditional red/green decor. 

An adorable paper tree advent calendar- use solid cardstock and decorate or use patterned scrapbook paper.

Another advent calender using... Dixie Cups! I love the colors used in the sample.

Photo Christmas wish list ornaments. This is a great idea to preserve Christmas memories and for your children to look back on when they were older to remember what they asked Santa for that year.


This adorable DIY cake plate would make any holiday treats taste even more delicious.


Check out the rest of our Holiday/Christmas Decor Board and while you're at it take a peek at our Homemade Holiday Gifts Board on Pinterest for a few ideas on what to MAKE for those special and hard to buy for people in your life!

Ahoy mateys! Our pirate and mermaid themed joint birthday invitation solves that troublesome issue of finding a theme for a boy-girl birthday party. Whether twins, or siblings with a few years apart, the pirate and mermaid theme appeals to a wide range of ages.

The two smaller photos on this birthday invitation can be removed to feature only one larger photo of the birthday boy/girl. The pirate and mermaid joint birthday invitation can be found on our website here.


Back from vacation and our newest family member

Things have been a little slow around here as we have been on vacation for the past 2 weeks visiting with our families in Maine. We head there in the summer to not only visit, but to escape the heat and humidity here in Maryland and to enjoy the Maine beaches.

This year our visit also included picking up the newest 4-legged addition to our family. Meet Sadie, the 8 week-old silver lab:


Look at that irresistible little face and those eyes!

Yes, we're completely in love with her, and she's as sweet as she looks.


New Joint Twin Birthday Invitations: Sibling Celebration

In an effort to expand the joint-twin birthday invitation selection, I've added the following new design, titled "sibling celebration". Available in a boy-girl, boy, or girl format, the design is shown in three choices below. As with any of our invitations, colors and fonts can be altered upon request.

Modern Housewarming Invitations: New Designs

By Amanda Mackell
on July 21, 2012

Per request, we've added two new modern housewarming invitations to our product line:

The "Bulletin" design uses a combination of fonts, a faux-textured background, and bold blue banner to create a simple, modern invite.



And our "Across the Map" invitation is based upon the popular state silhouette prints. A silhouette of the United States is the center of the invite, with a moving van and a heart marker placed on our location. The soft turquoise, coral and cream color scheme offers a bit of fun while the striped background, "we've moved!" banner and combination of fonts add a vintage-y element. All of these come together to form a unique, modern housewarming invite. Either of the above designs can be customized with alternative fonts, wording and color schemes upon request. The housewarming invitations can also be used for a moving celebration or moving announcement (provide your new address instead of party details). Both invites can be found on our website.
