Ahem...Ahem...Is this thing on?

My, my, it's been quite some time since I've been on here...and I've missed it so much!

I've decided to dust off this old blog and give it another go.

There are so many creative things I adore and through Facebook and Twitter, I've enjoyed sharing them.  I get quite a few questions about my crafts and decorating so I thought it would be great to blog more detailed descriptions of whats going on around my house!

So let's get started...

I have recently developed a serious obsession with stationary and printing things at home.  I somehow just realized that we have a pretty decent printer. After hours of blog research, I found some seriously talented bloggers out there who offer free templates and I have had a blast printing them.   

This one below is from Martha, of course, and I'll be using them for my place settings at our Thanksgiving table... (much more to come on that)

The paper I used for the above and below projects is actually Watercolor paper found in the drawing/sketching section at Hobby Lobby.  It is SUPERB for printing things like place cards and other things... these gift tags from Martha again.  Click on that link and browse around the free downloadable templates.  It's so much fun!  I'm going to punch holes in these and tie them onto presents with ribbon.

These envelope labels below were free from the blog  Love. Obsess. Inspire..  Aren't they gorgeous?  I just printed them on sticker paper and cut them out!

Not only is this cupcake and frosting recipe DELICIOUS, the printable is adorable too!   I found them on the blog Creature Comforts.  Even if you don't print them, definitely make them and eat them!

So that's it for now, if you have ANY questions about downloading, printing, cutting, etc. please don't hesitate to ask!

So... It looks like Jason and I are hosting an "open house" rehearsal dinner... for 75 people. More on that later. But THIS post is amazing because I was just thinking of how to cut costs on stuff like... decorations and Invitations. We need to talk. And... I really wish you lived closer- have I told you that? ;)
