{Indie Wed Denver}

My friend and frequent trunk show partner, Emily of Fern and Flora graciously asked me to join her in a booth for the Indie Wed Denver show on July 31.  Judging from their past event photos, like the ones from Milwaukee above, it is going to be a fabulous show.  Not only is it a bridal show, but it is also a market so people can buy our goods.  I am so pleased and excited to finish off my bridal line for this event.  I plan on taking my current designs, the bee, the chandelier, the pear, the dragonfly, for example, and creating the wedding invitation line I have always wanted.  I will also showcase my cupcake sticks and stir sticks that will also host my designs.  Emily will be showcasing her gorgeous bridal accessories.  I couldn't be more excited!

{Happy Weekend}

Ah at last! a three day weekend is ahead!  Memorial Day is here and it isn't a moment too soon. We plan to kick back, relax, (work on a few orders- not so relaxing) and see where the weekend take us.
................

There is a new frozen yogurt spot in my neighborhood that is amazing.  They have Strawberry Rubarb Puree, local granola and baked goods, , gluten and dairy free products, dark chocolate covered honey comb as a topping  (how have I never had this before).  It is going to be my new favorite, I do believe!

So this leads me to ask, (and so does the photo above)
What is your favorite? Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt?
Whatever your weekend brings you, I hope its fabulous!

{friday find: French Market}

While online last night I stumbled upon this site- {French Market} This site is quite the deal.  If you love French, Shabby, Vintage, Girly- this site is fabulous!  I mean Fabulous!  {If you already knew about this site and didn't tell me about it, you are in trouble!}

It seems that they cater to large events too, like wedding escort cards and gift bags.  They have mulitple Etsy sites depending on the quanites you might need. 

This is a new favorite site for me and I hope you enjoy it too! Go here to get started...

Stunning, right?

{sister weekend}

Just this last weekend my sister flew in to see me for a 4 day visit.  We had such a good time together, as we always do.  We started off with a late lunch at a very rustic/French eatery in downtown Denver called The Kitchen.  We had goat cheese and beets, Blue Cheese, Cranberry Walnut Bread and with local Honey, wonderful Entrees and to top it all off, a lovely piece of Lemon Tart.  What a way to start our weekend.
We had makeovers from Bobbi Brown, got lots of shopping in, a little at the mall but mostly at local Boutiques....
Kara and Kimberly.  We should have taken more photos together.  We realized this on almost the last day! 

On Sunday, we spent the day crafting at my place. We covered notebooks with lots of lovely paper that I collect.
I managed to come up with a new idea with the help of my sister, and made these adorable ribbon and spool bookmarks adorned with vintage paper, glitter and buttons. We made so many beautiful things that day that I will share with you all soon.

My apartment got a little makeover too.  I bought this lamp a few months ago for $5 at the Goodwill but needed a shade.  My sister and I went to Target and found the perfect shade and place for it in my house.  After she left, I went to the grocery store and bought myself some carnations as a little pick me up that I could enjoy this week.

Family is so important and I am so blessed to have these amazing people in my life who I get to be related to!  Hope you are having  a great week!
xoxo
