sweet sea

sweet sea

I wanted to give you all a little taste of some of the petite treats I will be selling in my shop along with my stationery. These little "sweet sea" earrings will be making an appearance! I made these for my mom for Christmas and I loved them so much I have decided to make some more...They will also be in a few other colours such as "sweet rouge" and "sweet violet". They're simple, just the way I like it, and hope you will too!

Happy holidays to all my lovely readers! Wow, what a month this has been! Launching this blog right before the holiday season has been tough. I was busy, busy designing holiday cards, (as you can see a little taste of them above) and also my Valentine's Day stationery is at the printers as I type...I can't wait to show you! The next few weeks are going to be jam packed with photo shoots, (gotta make my cards look pretty for my shop!) getting all my matching envelopes and packaging done, and finishing up my business plan. Thanks for all your patience and encouragement over the past month, it has truly helped! Now I'm off to celebrate the day with my family...merry ho ho ho!

chocolate 2


As I was shopping around the other day, I popped into aerie to buy some festive little goodies. The bonus was that I got a bar of chocolate as a free gift! The chocolate was good, but it was the packaging that I was excited about! OH the polka dots and the gold foiling...and fling font!

kiss off

Ok, so I know this card is a little mean, but how genius is it too? Like a calling card in reverse! Gramkin Paper Studio specializes in what they call "kiss-off cards". It definitely made me laugh...

With the holidays fast approaching and me slowly finishing my Christmas shopping, I am now starting to think of packaging! Oh how I love making tags and really getting creative with the wrapping. I've made a few gifts this year myself and really want them to stand out amongst the piles of red and green wrapped boxes. I'm thinking really pretty coloured tags, maybe a royal blue or purple, something a little less expected, mixed with white lace or ribbons and kraft paper. Here are some of my inspirations from fellow bloggers, and of course Martha Stewart! Be sure, I will definitely post my creations when they're all finished too!

They have finally arrived! I just received my letter pressed business cards and they look so pretty. They are simple and clean {just how short & sweet is supposed to be} with my logo and blog. It's kind of like a calling card, people can visit my site and get in touch with me in various ways. Plus it's all about word of mouth and in this case, blog...which is just how I like it. I can't wait to start giving them out and get my Etsy shop up!

P.S. Sorry about the delay in blog posts this week, with the holidays creeping up and freelance work getting crazy it's been a whirlwind of a week! xoxo
