...celebrating the holidays

For some reason (maybe its the 60 degree weather and my crazy work schedule and the fact that I didn't travel) I didn't get much into the spirit for Thanksgiving. So, I've decided to be obnoxiously spirited for Christmas this year. Join me, will you? i simply love GIVEAWAY!!

Big day. HUGE day. Giveaway day!

Happy Monday!

This week I'm giving away TWO sets of 10 notecards from the i simply love etsy shop. Any set of 10 notecards, so anything that's $16.00 (find the link to my shop on the right side of this page).

Leave a comment below saying which set of notecards is your favorite with your name and email address. I will pick two winners at random on Friday!! If you can't comment for some reason (I've had some complaints) email me at and I will include you in the drawing!

...being thankful for j.crew

Sorry. All my being thankful for's can't be deep and meaningful.

Images found on this J.Crew tumblr. That I follow. I have a problem.

...the new additions to the i simply love etsy shop!

Check them out!! The link to my shop is to your right! and gray

What a lovely combination.

...being thankful for good design

Yes. I am this nerdy. Good design makes the world a prettier place. 

...being thankful for my friends

Guys. I'm about to get sappy here. I have the greatest friends. We went to a great vineyard for my birthday that was perfect for some self timer action. So much love.

This one kind of looks like we're in a boy band. And I love it.

...being thankful

In addition to regularly scheduled programming, every morning this week I am going to post something I am thankful for. Do you want to play along? Leave a comment with something YOU are thankful for, or (even better) repost this on your facebook or twitter with what you're thankful for today!

First post coming up a little later!

...Lauren Bush's wedding photos

Have you guys seen Lauren Bush's wedding photos? She married Ralph Lauren's son (so now she's Lauren Bush Lauren, so funny) and they had a western style wedding. Such a random theme to choose for a wedding but the photos are fabulous. See them all at

...a night of restful sleep

If I could have any super power, it would be the ability to function on very little sleep. Or the ability to fall asleep the second my head hit the pillow. I swear. Sleep is this mysterious thing I never seem to get enough of. Some can function on 3 or 4 hours of sleep a night and run successful businesses, get everything they need to done and function perfectly normally. I actually get jealous. Imagine all the extra time you'd have.

...Christmas cards!

Every year my family gets bunches of Christmas cards, and I'm not going to lie, it's one of my favorite parts of the holidays. Do you know what I've come to love even more...designing them! It brings my cheer to a whole other level.

This year I'm putting the word out, I would love to design YOUR Christmas card. It will be completely custom, you won't get caught sending out the same card as your sorority sister (embarrassing, or sort of cute that you guys still have the same taste) and you have complete control over how it turns out! We can include a photo, or not. We can do a folded card, or a flat one. We can do whatever your favorite colors are, or black and white. And I will have them printed and delivered to your door. 
Contact me at for pricing and if you'd like to see some cards I've done in the past!

...getting cozy

The temperature is dropping quickly, it's about time to cozy up in a warm little scarf.

...eating cake!

Today, I turn a quarter of a century old. AH. I'm going to celebrate by eating a dozen cupcakes. Or an entire cake, whatever I happen upon first.

...sassy mittens

Oh kate spade, stop it, you are so adorable.

...type crush Tuesday

Such an awesome and unique invitation suite done by kate arends of wit + delight. 

...another trend I can get behind

Not going to lie, this excites me a little bit. Taking Carrie Bradshaw to a whole new level.

...some emerald j brands

I literally can't stop thinking about this style post spotted on a favorite blog a couple weeks ago. Why do I find colored denim so chic? It pulls together a simple black and white (which I seem to own insane amounts of) outfit with a wonderful pop of color!

...taking silly photos

The photographer caught me taking this photo:

with the adorable Mary Stuart at Meg's wedding:

I kind of love it.


I've never been to California (well, once, I was 6 weeks old, very memorable trip for me) but I think I need to live there. I just have a weird feeling I would love it. Maybe I should get this awesome print from Orange & Park as inspiration?

November 2, 2011 touches

I've recently found my classic little self moving away from silver accessories and sprinting towards gold. I know I might be a little behind on this trend but now there's no going back. I want everything I buy to have gold in it. (not real gold obviously...)

...funfetti cake balls

I really want to make these!

...type crush Tuesday - it's all in the details

Sometimes it the little details that make the biggest impact. Sewing the edges of a wedding favor, a fancy return address, a cute addition to an invitation, and a letterpress tag; they all add so much.


Seriously. How on earth is it November already? I'm going to blink and it will be Christmas.

Happy November!!
