Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Happy gorging of all things turkey and pumpkie pie, but most of all, take time to give thanks. We're taking a little day off for Friday so I thought I'd include an early "Thanks-Giving" cupcake for our cupcake Friday post.

Sweet Perfection

I have a ridiculous affection for felt creations. And don't even talk to me about macaroons...I have known to swallow the lavendar ones at the Boulange whole without blinking. These little gems by Smarmy Pants have definitely combined the best of both worlds!

At Virgil O. Stamps, you are encouraged to send in your "trash." From there, he will convert anything from gym floor tape, old books or children's drawings into letterpressed business cards and invitations. I thought his business cards were brilliant and a perfect eco-friendly option!

These business cards were made from floral paper

Halloween Hangover

Hope everyone had a fun Halloween! Here are some pics of my Boston "Terror" and his Halloween day at the studio. A bumble bee costume could not be found, so he donned an iguana suit that I had to sew him into because of his thunder thighs.
