Damask to the Max

Damask printed items are dominating the wedding scene nowadays. Its prints exude class and sophistication. Not to mention that you don't have to spend a fortune to achieve an elegant look since there are a lot of inexpensive damask items available out there most especially the black & white combination. Its versatility works hand in hand with any color palette just like the sample photos below.

Cake that I came across at Cake Central.

I highly recommend this Etsy site- Social Circles Design LLC I worked with them for my good friend's wedding invites. They are prompt and excellent in their service.

A "Heart Felt" Valentine's Day

I found this blog Felt Sew Good features these heart-shaped brooches and pins made out of felt material embellished with buttons and embroidery. They make an inexpensive Valentine's Day gift idea to friends or co-workers or perhaps your kid's teachers and classmates. My imagination is telling me that these can also be made like a heart shaped small pillow stuffed with scented potpourri or you can sew in a string or ribbon so you can hang them as tree ornaments. Any more ideas?

Heart is often associated with "Love" so go spread some love. Happy Valentine's Day!!!

How "tweet" it is....

Soar high with your creativity using these bird items for your next party! They are great for weddings and baby showers. They may make a minor detail at your event but they give a huge impression on how well your party was planned and thought of.

If you want to learn how to make these bird softies, I found the instructions and tutorial at iDiY.

These bird-theme cookies are also a great find at Sunflower Baking.

These are my own bird theme pocket mirror party favors which have gained a bit of popularity at my Etsy site, Pressed Orange.
