Spring 2010 of Martha Stewart Weddings

February 27, 2010

Hello Lucky, a favorite of SMP, is an incredible paper company. Their designs are TO DIE FOR and they even made the most recent cover of Martha Stewart Weddings. Check out the cover pic:

For a sneak peek at all the BEAUTY that is in this issue (and trust me, I already own a copy and it is AMAZING), check out this SMP post. Here is my favorite shot:

I will give you one guess as to the theme of the issue….. PINK! The sub-themes is ballet. So, get ready one of the most romantic, whimsical, and downright pretty issues of Martha Stewart Weddings ever!


Pretty in Plaid

February 21, 2010

I just finished reading the book Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster. Here is my cynopsis:

  1. You should definitely read it
  2. She made me laugh out loud so hard that others stared at me on the airplane.
  3. She loves pink, pretty clothing–i.e. we are twins.

Check out her this video of Jen talking about her book:

And you can also check out her books Bright Lights Big Ass (which gave me MUCH comfort when I moved to Chicago) and Bitter is the New Black (which is just hysterical). Check them out and let me know what you think!

Valentine’s Day by Amy Atlas

February 11, 2010

For those of you unfamiliar with the brilliance that is Amy Atlas, you haven’t lived!… Okay, that is a little extreme. But only a little. Amy Atlas is the epitome of things that I love: parties, treats, color, and creativity. Just for some background, here are a few of my favorite Amy Atlas dessert tables:

The Little Black Book Blog recently featured Amy Atlas’ Valentine’s Day dessert table. Look at the beauty:

I just love how the frosting makes each cupcake look like a pink carnation. It is just so adorable. In my opinion, this is exactly what a cupcake should look like.

Just adorable! I hope that someday I have the pleasure of seeing an Amy Atlas dessert table in person. But beware, I will probably be star struck and knock over the entire display. Hopefully I will take a photo of the cuteness first 🙂

Hand-Made Valentines

February 8, 2010

So, anyone that knows me understands that things I craft or put together tend to end up crooked, broken, cracked, or any other form of imperfect that you can think of. Spence likes to call these items “Carli Perfect.” Rather than be embarrassed, I just tend to own it. That said, look what I did:

First I found this awesome hole punch that creates a scalloped edge:

I took the pink paper and attached them to little clear bags that I filled with conversation hearts. The end product was (although rather home-made looking) kinda cute:

Well, regardless of the result, I am so glad that I made these. Before these candy bags, I can’t remember the last time I did a craft. Yay for pretending to be Martha for a few hours 🙂
