minted

Ok so it's no secret that I am in love with paper.  I mean seriously in love, makes my hand sweat, in love.  I love making paper products, collecting journals I never use, wrapping pencils in paper, buying thank you cards (the art of letter writing is not lost on me), using only my paper calendar, scribbling lists on paper pads, writing out my grocery list, etc.  Basically, we live in an age of technology and I can't get enough writing instead of typing. 

Enter: minted.  This place is awesome.  I can spend entire nap times perusing through the endless pages of picture cards, stationery, address labels, and art prints.  Major drool.  Here are some of my favorites that I've spotted recently.

Pretty gorgeous stuff, right??

black, white, & gold baby shower - details


I'm back with the rest of the details from the black, white, and gold baby shower!  Beth and Laura (the sisters who threw the baby shower for their sister-in-law, Trish) had me help with a few decorative pieces.  
First, they had me make tags for the adorable place settings. 
Aren't the little pots so adorable??  
I helped with three different banners.  I'm so in love with this combination of papers.
I also helped make these "fans" that were used for a sweet game about the baby's mom and dad. 
Here's everything...
