Will + Kate

Okay, okay! Time to snap out of the romantic, royal, fairy tale blur.

Oh who am I kidding, I'm gonna ride this all day long if I can. Weddings are just so wonderful and to top it off, a royal wedding is just magnificent! So much love, I can't handle it. I'm happy as a clam.

Congratulations to the happy couple!



Now, where can I get me some of that on the left? Mmmhm!


Feeling like a royal ball of mush.

Monday Marvel

Oh goody goody! Today's {Monday Marvel} is here and I couldn't be happier!

For today's marvel, I am finally showcasing my wonderful sister's Save the Dates for her upcoming December holiday wedding! Oh what joy! Take a look at the little pretty post card I designed for her and her future hubby...



Eeeps! Oh, I'm just thrilled. As official MOH and Graphic Designer for the wedding :gulp: I have some serious responsibilities, but it is going to be such a delight! I can't wait to see the wedding unfold as we continue to design and plan.

Marvel away lovelies. :)

Tuesday Shoesday

For today's { Tuesday Shoesday } yes, there will be shoes...but there will also be...shoe clips! Yes. Shoe clips. Picture this: adorable, handmade, every color imaginable shoe clips courtesy of Etsy shop { ChloeANDMaddie } Oh you know me, I like to spice things up a bit once in a while!

Adding a pair of these puppies to your pretty pumps will definitely add some character to your feetsies. But extra bonus! Not only can you find these perfect, ultra adorable shoe clips in their shop, but they also have headbands and other goodies galore.

You're Invited...

Well, not really, but let's pretend!

For today's { Wedding Wednesday } I am showcasing some of my grand work for my beautiful cousin's wedding this upcoming May. She and I have been working non stop trying to make her wedding as beautiful as we can and I have to say, we are doing a pretty darn good job!

The invitations have been sent out and I can finally show a few pieces of the ensemble: the invitation, a details card, and the adorable band that wrapped around the entire invitation package. Just a little taste of the beauty to come!


Currently working on a number of pieces for the wedding, I am thrilled to be a part of this wonderful event. My cousin deserves only the best and I am honored to be doing this for her. Looking forward to the big day!

Nom nom nom.

Happy hump day! Today...a treat! What does this post have to do with design you say? Absolutely nothing. Weddings? Nope. Crafts? Nada. Today's is post is simply for your enjoyment because I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share this with the world.

I give you...Cookies 'n' Cream Oreo Fudge Brownies! Commence drooling...






Chocolate, check. Oreos, check. Gooey goodness, check! 

Here is the recipe:


Cookies ‘n’ Cream Oreo Fudge Brownies
Recipe source: kevinandamanda.com
1 box brownie mix (I used Ghirardelli Double Chocolate brownie mix)
Eggs & oil (as called for by the brownie mix)
1 heaping half cup (6 oz) cookies & cream ice cream
1/4 cup hot fudge topping (chilled or room temp)
Double Stuf Oreos
1. Preheat oven according to box directions & spray an 8×8 baking dish generously with cooking spray.
2. Combine brownie mix, eggs, and oil as directed on the back of the box, but do not add the water.
3. Add ice cream and hot fudge to the brownie batter and stir to combine.
4. Pour half of the brownie batter into the baking dish, layer with Oreos, then top with remaining batter. Bake for 40-50 minutes or as directed on the back of the box.
These are some seriously show stopping brownies. Bring these to any event, make them at home for a decadent divulgence, or maybe for a friend. Heck, the recipe is so simple, why not! 

Posting something actually design related soon. :}

Rain, rain go away.

Grab your umbrellas, it's raining buckets. Literally...

Today's { Tuesday Shoesday } is inspired by today's quite rainy and blustery day. On the hunt for a new pair of rain boots to brave these April showers, I wanted to go the vibrant colorful route, what else? Thanks to the always preppy, always wonderful { Sperry }, I found a few boots I'd like to add to my closet.


All of these adorable patterns are for the { Women's Pelican Tall Boot Lug }. From 'Signal Flag' to 'Pink and Green Plaid', I'd love to strut my stuff in a pair of these. Rainy don't seem so bad with these pretty things for sale!
