Very Late Holiday Post

I just wanted to post this picture of some sweet holiday treat packages I made for my co-workers at Christmastime.

Send money for a new camera.
 I made caramel sea salt brownies from A Cup of Jo. (Delicious and addictive. I made 4 batches.)

Then I popped each brownie into a glassine bag and stuck that inside a brown paper bag that I had stamped. I got that cute stamp from Michaels on clearance. Score!

Then I tied the whole thing up with some bakers twine and called it a day.

I was the hit of the office. For a few minutes a least.

I have a fun Valentine's Day DIY coming up in a few days. I just need some good light to take photos so they aren't as poor as the one above.

Oh, Rifle

I have declared my love for Rifle Paper Co. in the past, but Ms. Bond has recently come out with a beautiful line of fabric with Villa Nova, so here's a few more Rifle products I am loving right now.

The fabric... swoon. This floral is gorgeous, but there are also some cute geometric prints as well. I would put any of them in my home.

The 2012 Botanical Calendar. I asked for (and received!) this for my birthday. It definitely brightens up my little gray cubicle.
This set of notebooks. I strongly hinted (suggested?) that these would make a great Mother's Day gift. And this cute little vintagey message pad. Would also be cute in my cubicle.

Halloween Treat Bags

I had this whole post all typed out MONTHS ago and somehow Blogger lost it and I was too tired to type it again. But here we go...

I made little treat bags for my co-workers, mostly because I wanted to use my heat embossing wand.

Each person got a personalized bag, Brains in a Jar, an eyeball on a fork, smaller bag of chocolate eyeballs. I made a cute tag and attached to the eyeball on a fork. I wish I could have found a nice treat bag to stick the eyeballs in, but I had to make do.

Pictures were taken at work with my phone, don't judge. Like I usually have such great pictures.

Bag tutorial here, Brains in a Jar recipe and tags here, eyeballs on a stick (Oreo truffles) here.

Fall Fashion Inspiration

This lovely photograph (The Pause that Refreshes by CarolynCochrane on Etsy) is so inspirational to me for my fall wardrobe. Pretty, spare and such lovely hints of plums, greys and ivories.
