Latest Inspirations

First things first...sorry I have been a bad blogger lately. I don't really have much of an excuse. I don't feel like I have all that much to say...well that has any entertainment value... I promise I'll try to be better...I'll try.


That being said I wanted to show you a couple of things that have inspired me lately. I saw this piece of art on a blog about a month or so ago, I apologize I cannot figure out which home decor blog it was, so I deeply apologize. (if you know, please tell me) It appears to be felt pieces stitched together. I am been day dreaming about doing something simliar for weeks now. I hope to do some shopping this week to get supplies.




Secondly this was posted on Twig & Thistle earlier this month. I am thinking about doing something similar to give as gifts to our local (couples) friends. I have some great twine that I have been wanting to use and I will create holiday tags for them. Can't wait!! I know Mr. Jetplane will think I'm an idiot but oh well.




Have you all started thinking about Holiday cards??? I've been scouring the internet for cards... I want to use a picture from our family shoot this past spring with the dogs...

Decisions...Decisions... I like a lot of the cards on http://www.tinyprints.com/ and http://www.minted.com/. For cheaper options don't forget to look at Snapfish and Vistaprint. They have some great options for your as well that are cheaper.

I created and purchased our wedding rehearsal invites and Thank You cards from Snapfish. I used a photo and created postcards...they were nice quality and we received alot of positive feedback. You never have to spend a lot of money to create and send something to family and friends.
Enjoy the rest of your week...and look forward to Pug Friday tomorrow!!

I am now officially addicted to photobooks/photocards/all other things that you can put photos on (even if maybe you shouldn't..). I blame you. :)

i think that's an adorable gift idea! I'm always looking for more unique gifts to give people.

The smore idea is a GREAT one. I think I am going to do that for Christmas this year too.
I am just wondering where to find the plastic containers to put those together with?

Great, simple gift idea though! I love it :)

I have been thinking about Christmas cards all week. I'm going to design our Christmas cards and probably have them printed. I want to include a wedding photo.

We didn't send out moving announcements, so I want to get our cards out early so people have the correct address. I need to start sending emails asking for addresses. :)

Loved the smore idea when I saw it on Twig and Thistle. What a cute gift for friends and family!

i LOVE that picture. you'll have to post how you do it! i can't tell from the pic but it's great.

Thanks for the photo website info. I checked the others and you're right, most of them have terrible selections in the $1.50/card range. Most of them would have us spend $100 for 30 cards. Ridiculous. And I have been craving smores. That looks like so much fun.
