A Wedding To Ruffle Your Feathers…

…And Make The Bride “Feel Like A Natural Woman…”

Ok fine, I’ll spare you from my lovely singing skills.  But I’ve been feeling the beauty of nature this week ever since Denise, from Bellis Studios, shared with me this easy and affordable DIY placecard idea she found over at Another Shade of Grey.  What’s a girl to do when she gets inspired?  Find even more ideas to compliment those pretty little feathers

(Photo credits:  Feather placecards from Another Shade of Grey, feather ribbon discovered at We Met In A Bar, middle board from Hostess With The Mostess, potpourri from Target, Shannon Britt shoes from Zappos.)

Do you love it?  I had to throw those gorgeous feather shoes in there for you…only because I love you, dear readers!  For a signature cocktail to compliment your nature theme, why not pour one on the rocks?  Get it?  Rocks?  Rocks are a part of nature?  No?  Ok, so my jokes are as bad as my singing, sorry.  But you’ve gotta give me credit for trying.  Happy planning!

The Compact Digital Wedding Album…

with 2 comments

…Share Your Wedding Pictures With Everyone, On The Spot!

Maybe you’ve registered for your wedding already.  Well, you might want to think about adding this cool gadget too!  This Digital Brag Book from Red Envelope puts a new twist on the traditional wedding album.  Allowing you to store up to 2,000 photos in a compact aluminum case, which opens to reveal a 3 1/2″ LCD screen, it’s now easier to share your gorgeous pictures!

Worried that Red Envelope doesn’t offer a registry program?  Worry no more, you can add any items from this store (or any store!) to your Wishpot.com Wedding Registry.

Looking for something similar but less expensive?  This stylish Digital Photo Key Chain has a 1 1/2″ high-resolution screen which can hold up to 60 of your favorite wedding pictures!

So go ahead…add one of these to your Wishpot.com Wedding Registry so that after the wedding, you can brag all you want about your amazing day.  Then when it comes time for baby, switch the pictures out and show off your little one.  Cheers!

UPDATE: Cyndi from somuchmorethanamom left a great comment with a wonderful idea for photographers:

We have the keychain – it’s so fun. Either of these would also be great for photographers to carry around their portfolios in such a compact form. You never know when you may run into a potential customer and want to show what you can do.”  – Cyndi

Love Letter Turned Quilt…

with 4 comments

…Wrap Your Love Around Them!

I’ve always been a sucker for sentimental things.  When we received an awesome hand-made quilt from my grandparents for our wedding, it was the most special thing ever.  I still sleep with it every night!  I also sleep with my Precious Moments alphabet “silky blanky” they made for me, and I’m almost 30 twenty-ten years old!  These are so special to me because they were made with love.  Which is why I decided to share this lovely idea with you:

Don’t you love it?  A love letter turned into a quilt, with a little help from Spoonflower!  The quilt was made by Sarah, of The Small Object, for her niece.  Isn’t it just the sweetest thing?

When I saw this, I had to share it with you dear readers right away, because I truly think this would make a wonderful gift idea for either a couple on their wedding day or for your true love.  Heck, this would be a great gift for anyone…for any reason!  Think baby showers, birthdays, holidays or anniversaries.  You can’t go wrong with this idea.

To read more about it and see how to make it, click HERE.  To get your custom fabric made, head on over to Spoonflower.  Thanks to Photojojo for emailing this idea to me so I could share it with you!  Be sure to check out their website as well, for other cool ideas.  Happy loving & happy quilting!
