Sales & Steals: J.Crew 30% Off

I just stopped by the J.Crew in Old Town Pasadena and it was a mad house!  Finished picking up a few gifts and got a few things for myself {couldn't resist!}.  I walked away with this {in mint green}, this and a cute bracelet {no longer available online} and am now browsing online for some goodies they didn't have in the store.  'Tis the season, happy shopping! 

P.S. My neon pink shirt from this post is still available online too.

Wedding: Happy Holidays!

 {click photos to enlarge}

Here is a peek at our 2011 holiday cards from Sugar Paper

We thought it would be nice to also make them our "Just Married" announcements so we used a wedding photo on the card and stamps.  A special touch was the dove grey letterpress and threading of the cards in light pink to match the heart and envelope liners.  

Happy holidays from us to you!
