Georgia Peach Bridal Shower

Georgia Peach Bridal Shower

My brother is getting married and it's time to celebrate. He is marrying his girlfriend of 10 years and we couldn't be more excited to make Danielle officially part of our family. The couple met in Savannah Georgia where my brother was going to college and Danielle lived. So it was only natural to throw her a Georgia peach bridal shower up here in New England. I always say the best parties are all about the details. Details make a party memorable, a good theme helps a little too.

11 DIY Map Craft Projects

11 DIY Map Craft Projects

I've always had a slight obsession with maps without really realizing it. Recently it was pointed out that I have a tendency to craft with maps. I think this is because growing up my Dad was a long haul truck driver so we always had an atlas around or went on trips with him where he would show me the plotted out roots on the map so I could learn to follow along, these were the days before GPS. Now when the mapbooks were well used or a new one was purchased I always took the old one. It was the upcycler in me at any early age.

The Perfect Baby Announcement and no I'm not pregnant ;)

Our family had some big news on Sunday! My sister is pregnant. I couldn't be more excited for her and her husband.

So naturally her announcement would involve cookies.

ExtraCared for Onesie

ExtraCared for Onesie

I don't often write about my 9 to 5 (because really who wants to hear about that) but today is an exception because recently my two worlds merged for a few hours. I helped throw another baby shower at work (click here to see a bunny themed work baby shower).  I work at CVS along side designers that work on the ExtraCare loyalty program. So when one of the designers was pregnant it just seemed naturally or punny to make an ExtraCare onesie.

Last Minute Easter Decorations, Crafts and Recipes

I have to admit Easter really snuck up on me this year. I am not sure if it is because Easter is so early this year or just because the snowy weather had me still in the Winter mindset. So if you're like me and are hosting Easter in 2 days and haven't even started menu planning, cleaning or decorating. I have thrown together some ideas to help us get through these next few days.

Even though it was snowing outside I can't help but be excited that it is Spring.

Bunny Baby Shower (at work)

Bunny Baby Shower (at work)

One of my friends at work recently had her baby boy, Finn, but before she did we threw her a fun baby shower at the office. Now throughout her entire pregnancy she referred to her little nugget as bunny. So naturally we threw her a bunny themed baby shower! Work showers tend to be a bit different then your regular showers, you schedule a conference room for an hour and there is usually a cake. Now do you all think I could just do that? No! Even a work baby shower has to be special, maybe just with less games.

The Search for Artwork for My Home at Minted.com

The Search for Artwork for My Home at Minted.com

In the past few months I have moved into a new home and have increasingly been discouraged by the art work that I own from my old apartment. I think I am at a different place in my life than I was before so the art just does not seem right for the space at this time. Being a designer I am overly opinionated when it comes to art which is why my walls are still fairly blank after months of living here. 

In the past I have used Minted for invitations for wedding and baby showers and I have always been extremely happy with the designs especially the print quality.
