So cute: DIY mini candybar wrapper

12 Feb

Creature Comforts is one of my loves. Between the inspiration and the sweet tutorials, I might stalk this blog a bit more than I should.

Check out this lovely little freebie – print your own mini candy bar wrappers. These would make a sweet valentines treat – or maybe a cute little wedding favor.

Enjoy.

DIY letterpress

29 Jan

Letterpress makes us swoon. The texture, the cut of the printing block, the ink.

But it also makes us sad because it’s so expensive.

Cue the doves & the choir of angels… now you can do it yourself at home!

The always-awesome Paper-Source just released a home letterpress set! It retails for only $149 (one of us once paid over $300 for a broken letterpress – and dreamed of fixing it up) – that includes the following:

Letterpress tool
Epic 6 machine
Clear packing mat with packing sheet
Ink brayer
Ink base
Black letterpress ink
Letterpress paper (10 sheets of A2 flat)
Paper positioning guides
Printing plates
Printing plate adhesive

Perhaps it’s the “new” GOCCO?
Whatever it is, it’s on our Christmas lists!

Watch for a tutorial the week after Christmas (if a certain husband gets it for a certain wife)!

I found this fabulous, vintage-style bridesmaid dress

25 Nov

This dress is so awesome – the sheer fabric, bow-top shoulders, tulle-peeking-out-of-the skirt and fabulous vintage-y color. How lovely would it be with golden pumps or cowboy boots. I want to see a line of bridesmaids sporting this dress with their hair down in loose curls. Or, a bride wearing this beauty to her rehearsal dinner.

Find it at Target on December 20th – part of the Rodarte for Target collection.
