Pretty Favour Packaging...




I cannot express to you how thrilled I was to find these lovely coasters at Kate Aspen.

They are in keeping with our cherry blossom theme, and they are pretty to boot! In terms of packaging these little treasures, I went to my go-to people at Paper Source where I picked up this pretty matte brown wrapping paper.



I tied it all up with a band of my signature chiyogami, and topped it off with a golden bee. I think they turned out really well...Now all I have to do is stamp a pretty golden "thank you" and we're done done done! I have so many projects on the go right now, as it's getting down to crunch time! I'm definitely excited, but overwhelmed at the same time...at least the invites are good to go. I'll post them here next week.

Latest Wedding Idea...Coming to Fruition!

If there are any of my former readers left out there, you may remember me salivating over these place card holders by Paloma's Nest.


These beauties would be perfect on our day, however at $58 for 6, they were considerably out of our budget. I was disappointed for about 1.4 seconds, whereupon I realized **I could just make them myself!** Here's the plan:

I haven't got anything to show you yet, but thanks to my extraordinary cousin, I should have these babies in two weeks! I am currently in the process of drawing up the invites which will be printed and mailed next weekend.

Everything is coming together...I just have to breathe...

Also, as the wedding draws nearer I am trying to be more careful about what I am eating...in order to further motivate me to do so, I am going to be posting a link to my food journal everyday at the end of the day...Once I figure out how.
