Howdy guys! I hope you're all having a good week. I've been thinking about birthday cards. I love sending snail mail to dear friends and bonus points if I'm able to make the birthday card myself.
Last year, while spring cleaning, I came across my stash of postcards. I've collected them over the years in my different travels and stored them in a plastic box. But what are postcards if they're not given away, right?
So I curated a set, about 5 postcards, based on my memories with a particular friend.
For one friend, I chose these: one with a lighthouse (because she's one of my pillars of strength), a beach (because we spent every summer going to a different one), one with food (because dining is one of our favorite things to do), and an adult coloring page (one that I colored and a blank one for her to fill). Each one has a special handwritten message at the back.
For another friend, I choose these: botanicals (the theme she used for her wedding), dolphins (one summer, I joined her and her family to see dolphins in the wild), historic homes (we both love interior design and architecture), and one with a pig on it (we both love the country life).
I gathered all the postcards, secured them with a vellum "belt", and tucked these inside an envelope for mailing. TADA!

One of my favorite blogs is Chocolate and Zucchini. It's a food blog authored by Parisian, Clotilde Desoulier. In her latest post, she had some good news to share. She got married!
Of the many sweet details, I loved her bouquet the best:

It's made out of bread!!! Her friends at the famed Paris boulangerie, Poilane, made it for her. I thought it was one of a kind and very personal. Or how I like to say it -- blah to TADA!

Hello everyone! I hope you are all having a great start to the New Year. Personally, I'm still recovering from the very busy holiday season.
It's quite bittersweet, taking down the decorations and waiting until next season for the festivities. I saw this wreath at the store and thought it could be a nice blah to TADA! craft inspiration:
It's made of colorful pompoms that can be hung at home or in your workspace all year round. TADA!
