Calling All Hungry Girls!

I stumbled upon a new website recently and I love it, so I thought I'd share! It's a website called Hungry Girls. Every day they send me a yummy recipe with ingredients, instructions, and all the calorie/fat/sodium/etc counts. The best part is the recipes are healthy!! It's great! Once I get into my new house (MAY 8TH....YAY!), I plan on trying some of these delicious looking meals. Check it out for yourself at http://www.hungry-girl.com/!

Jenn & Dan ~ Wedding Invitations

I just completed the wedding invitations I have been working on for my friend, Jenn. Her fiance is a very talented designer who created the floral design I used throughout their entire invitation suite. He originally used the floral design on their save-the-dates and wanted the design tied into their wedding invitations as well. With pink and green as their colors, Jenn and Dan chose a dark pink outer envelope and a lighter limey green envelope to hold their rsvp card. An invitation, directions card, reception card, and rsvp card were all included in their suite. The pictures don't do them justice....the colors completely pop against the metallic paper. Very pretty!

Laptop Cover

The creative juices have been flowing lately! In addition to my invitation/card projects, I've also been working on some other random projects. I found one recently in Martha Stewart's magazine. It's a simple cover for my laptop made from an old cableknit sweater. No pattern necessary - just cut sweater to fit the laptop, turn inside out and stitch sides and bottom together, and attach a cute button! I used black thread to match the black button as a sort of "clasp" if you will. Since I transport my laplop to grad school and back, the cover serves as protection against scratches, etc. I completed this project in about 1 1/2 hours!

Upcoming Projects...

Currently, I'm working on my friend Jenn's wedding invitations. The finishing touches will be completed this week and then I will be posting them. They look beautiful so far! Also, I have Just Moved cards all ready to be printed - I'm just waiting for my new address. My husband and I don't seem to be having much luck with our house hunting. Hopefully we'll have a place to call home very soon! For now I'll leave you with a picture of my nephew, Jack David. He lives in Virginia, and I'm going through withdrawl! He needs to come home soon...
