2009- a new year, a new calendar!
January 6, 2009
How the time does fly. One of my favorite things about starting the new year is putting away (but always keeping!) the former year's calendar and going out to get a brand new one for the brand new year. I don't know why I get so giddy about those clean blank pages and the idea of a freshly sharpened pencil taking to them- filling in birthdays, anniversaries and little important tidbits throughout. While the majority of my calendar and schedule organization is in the form of my computer's ical, I still insist every year on satiating my obsession for paper things by getting a new, yummy calendar. It just puts a smile on my face. This year, I stumbled upon Etsy's Little Brown Pen and found the perfect gift for friends and family (as well as myself! Pretty perfect deal- right?) They have the sweetest little downloadable calendars (one even in the cutest ever business card size) for which all you have to do is (to quote their tagline) "JUST. ADD. PAPER." Use a nice, heavy cardstock and your own home printer and within a matter of minutes- you have the perfect little calendar. In addition, Little Brown Pen has sweet stationary, bookplates, gift tags, etc. so definitely check them out.
Also, don't miss the fun video they put together. Too cute!
Those calendars are too precious! What a great find!
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
