Swanky Paper :: Pom Poms

I wish I had more photos from this event - actually I wish I had "a " photo from this event ... everything looked great!

Along with several friends, we hosted a bridal shower for a dear friend who is getting married.

I ordered a few pom-poms from Prost to the Host. She has a fantastic etsy shop - you really should check it out if you are looking for simple decor that really stands out!! We decorated my family room with them, added a few in the dining area and had a couple hanging up outside on the front patio.

We had delicious food, yummy treats, and a truly fabulous time!

Naturally I made the invitations! These were simple and fun. I ended up making them into Postcards...

Featured @ The Stationery Place

I am a little late in posting this particular entry, but I can't move on without thanking the darling Lyndsey over at The Stationery Place. She is expecting - HOORAY!! - and is holding operation: baby, where she features different designers and their baby related stationery.

She featured the baby announcements I made for my two youngest kiddos on Thursday. Take a peek!
Thanks again Lyndsey!!

Funeral Service

This was the hardest project I had the pleasure to work on.

When I heard the news I was heartbroken. This past 2 weeks has been very emotional. One of my closest and dearest friends lost her baby a week before she was due. It was so tragic and heartbreaking.

"There is no foot so small that it cannot leave an imprint in this world."

Bless her heart, she is a strong woman. I admire her strength and courage. Through it all my friend put together a beautiful and peaceful memorial service. It was perfect. She asked me to create a few things to help make this moment a little more memorable.

{flat note cards for the guests to write their thoughts to be put in a scrapbook}

I feel honored to have had a (small) hand in creating such a beautiful funeral service for beautiful baby Olivia.
