The Big 3-0

This past weekend was the official celebration of my sister's birthday. It was a wonderful weekend filled with family, friends, food, and of course wine. As you'll recall from the invites, (Sealed With A... Fleur-de-lis?) my sister is a fan of any and all things purple. For this particular tablescape, she opted for gold as the accent color.

You know you've done well when the client cries in disbelief- happy client, happy designer. Happy Birthday Tiffany!

From The Heart

When it comes to holidays, my FAVORITE part is opening cards from my loved ones with thoughtful sentiments inside. Take this a step further- a HANDMADE card with thoughtful sentiments inside. Because I had some free time in early February (I say laughingly) I took the time to make my Valentines this year. I can't take credit for this idea, as it was my dear friend Elizabeth who suggested we turn our Saturday lunch date into a craft date instead.

Elizabeth and I cruised the aisles of Michael's carefully- inspecting each shelf to make sure we weren't missing out on something fabulous to help us create our holiday masterpieces.
We spent $26 on supplies and ended up with 16 handmade Valentines (not all pictured here).

Below I have provided a coupon to Michael's to make your Valentine's Day crafting that much more affordable.
Happy Valentine's Day to all my readers!
