Free spirited and eclectic, my design style is always evolving. I recently graduated from The University of Texas's Interior Design program and am figuring things out as I go. I have a passion for personality and love a deep discussion of life, the universe, and everything. Philip K. Dick novels and YouTube comedians are my trivia specialties, so if you're ever in need of a teammate at Flying Saucer, I'm your girl.
I FINALLY got my Christmas cards written and stamped and in the mail today! Woo hoo! But isn’t it always true that as soon as you finish something or pick something, you find one you like better? Such is the story with my Christmas cards. Maybe I should have seen this coming since I picked a cat in a Christmas hat, because that definitely does not scream stylish (but hey, everyone loves something cute!). Either way, I have card envy of the beautiful holiday cards I’ve been seeing on blogs and various stationary websites.
Love the lettering on this one! It feels very vintage inspired, which you know we love.
Simple and beautiful, this card would brighten anyone’s Christmas.
Serious Christmas card perfection! From Paper Craft Style, check them out! They have awesome ideas.
Another fabulous handmade wreath card, this one taking a less traditional route.
This gorgeous card is die cut, giving it texture and depth.
Adorable photo, fantastic font choices and a great layout. Personalized perfection.
These are just a few beautiful cards that have inspired me to add “Better Card Styling” to my New Year’s Resolutions list! What do your cards look like? And would you swap them for any others you’ve seen? Let me know because I am developing a serious obsession with this topic!
Call me crazy for taking Lady Gaga at her word, but as she states in her most recent music video “Marry the Night”: “I believe mint will be very big in fashion this spring.”
In the video, Gaga’s nurses were mint “berets” tipped sideways because Gaga finds it romantic and on trend.
Now, I’m definitely not one to follow all of Gaga’s fashion advice…you will never see me in a meat dress! But this is one trend I can get behind. There’s something so delicate and refreshing about mint greens. They’re not too overpowering, yet they give any room or object they’re used in instant personality and a hint of femininity and French refinement.
Personally I would kill for that beautiful mint green camera from Urban Outfitters, such an interesting color for a camera! Of course, I think all this stuff is GORGEOUS! and I really hope that Lady Gaga is right and mint takes off this spring.
What do you think? Will mint be the color to have for Spring 2012? Let us know!
