Thankful for cookies

I have the all important roll in our family of making sure we are set with sweets. While delicious recipes and creative concoctions are always wonderful, my skills are best suited for beautifully decorated desserts.

After debating between turkeys, pumpkins or possibly a cornucopia I decided to use Crate&Barrel’s Fall Cookie Cutter Set, specifically the leaf and acorn shapes.

I bought a big tub of cookie dough at BJ’s earlier this month to support the undoubtedly large amount of cookie baking/decorating in the upcoming months.

Expect some more holidays shapes popping up in the next couple weeks!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Baby Shower Invite & Crafts

This past Saturday was my oldest sister’s baby shower for the new addition to our family. The event was a big hit and that baby has a ton of swag waiting for her when she gets home in January.

My mom had asked me to design the invitations for the event. The baby’s room is sea themed and my sister registered for very adorable aquatic sheets. Inspired by the creatures, I designed an octopus themed card with a die-cut loop border to mimic its legs. I ordered fuchsia Paper Source square envelopes to complete the design.

My next baby shower project to tackle were the decorations, I ended up making Martha-esque pom poms for the centerpieces with the invitation octopus in pink popping out as if wading over seaweed surrounded by starfish and pink swirls. I made similar miniature pom poms for napkin holders and we also adorned the tables with bowls of Swedish Fish to snack on.

No baby shower is complete without some activities, each guest was given a baby bingo card to win a prize if they were the first to match a row of shower gifts as well as a card to guess the baby’s due date, weight and length.

To top everything off, I created two shell banners celebrating the little baby-to-be!

I’ll be sure to post when little Lynch is born and how big!

 

A Little Bee Told Me

A little over a year has gone by since graduating from good old PSU. I entered the job market knowing exactly what I wanted to do and now as I search for new opportunities I find myself facing a lot of uncertainty. I want to design, I want to be creative, I want to do what I want when I want! So I am more or less in the same exact position as every other person in the universe.

I’ve decided its time to take a little control over whats next. This blog is the kickoff of A Little Bee Told Me invitation and paper design. On here, I will share projects I am working on, work I am impressed by and whatever else I may find relevant at that moment. Hopefully, this blog will create some buzz (pun totally intended) and I will meet new clients, enthusiasts or just get my work out there. So enjoy!
