Currently loving these prints by Cindy Tomczyk. She uses the gocco, letterpress, and digital media to bring to life her illustrations. Hmm...I might be eying a couple of her prints for Christmas presents...it's never too early!

Another great line that is pulling in the gemstone colors, Quail. Aren't these lovely?

Although I voted early and generally don't use my blog as a place to voice my political opinions--I couldn't help but share the cute cupcakes I made for the election day party we're having :) You have to give it to Obama's campaign for presenting a strong visual identity...yay graphic designers!
I spent my Halloween evening in Greensboro, NC at the Avetts Brother concert. Those who know me well, are fully aware that I am slightly obsessed with this band -- if you are not in that small percentage, then I highly recommend checking them out :)

I totally related to this article I found on the domino mag website this morning..."Decorating for Renters." When you are not allowed to structurally change your living space the obstacles are a little more frustrating when it comes to decorating. Since I will probably be living in such a space a little while longer--I'm going to keep these ideas handy when we move.
2. Kitchen Storage...we have this problem now. The folks at domino have put their silverware in a caddy and have hidden it behind the cute curtain and found a snazzy container for utensils. I'm also loving the exposed shelves with stacked dishes.3. (Another problem we currently have) Nasty laminate kitchen floors. Here they have covered the floors with flor tiles..perfect!
4. An oversized paper lantern to bring a little pop and dimension to the room (I have about 40 of these left over from the wedding!)
6. Paint--of course (if you are allowed)!

At our rehearsal dinner we wanted to be sure and thank everyone who was near and dear to our hearts but we didn't want to leave anything/anyone out! So we came up with the brilliant idea of creating a video where we can collect all of our thoughts weeks in advance and cleverly express how we feel. To keep a few parts of our wedding intimate I have chose not to play the whole video on the blog but here are a few still shots to give you an idea--we think it was a big hit :)
