Beaded Bookmark!!!

Sébastien and I got married in Punta Cana back in 2008.  Since we had a ”Destination Wedding” we didn’t want the wedding favors to be too big and they absolutely had to travel well. We decided bookmarks would be great and this is what we came up with: I made the bookmarks in our wedding colors.  The pink bookmarks went to the ladies and the aqua bookmarks went to the men. Pretty cute, don’t you think? Everyone loved the bookmarks!!  Bookmarks make great wedding favors even when you’re not having a destination wedding.  :) Sébastien, Gabrielle and I on our … {continue reading}

To Watermark or not to Watermark?

Do you put your name/logo on the photos you share on the web? I’ve been debating if I should put my logo on my photos.  Not because I don’t want to share my photos… it’s the complete contrary.. I want to make sure if my photos get lost on the web… whoever finds them can find me : ) With the current Pinterest craze going on, what if someone re-pins but not with my site… and then someone comes across my projects and wants more info.. but can’t get them because they can’t find me?! Now, if I do decide … {continue reading}

Headband with Felt Circle Button!!!

Felt is such a fun material to create with. The possibilities are endless with it. With a few supplies, I created a gorgeous headband for my daughter Emanuelle.

Review – Faery Dust Designs!!!

  Last week I received a pair of beautiful fingerless mitts from Faery Dust Designs!! Packaging was GREAT and it came with a beautiful hand written note.  I LOVE it when there’s a personalized note inside a package. I’ve never owned a pair of fingerless mitts, but I must say that now I know why so many people love them.  They keep your hands warm but yet leave your fingers free to move around.   The mitts are quite flexible too, they fit my hands perfectly and yet stretch enough for even my hubby’s hands.  They are really well made.  … {continue reading}
