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.Read More

It's that time again! Time for the Silhouette Challenge! This month's theme is paper. Make sure you stick around until the end to see 43 other inspirational projects.
Now choosing a project to complete for this challenge was actually kind of hard. With paper the options are just endless. Recently I used an old atlas to make cards for a cardswap.

With their relationship initially being long distance their states are a significant part of their story.Read More
