For me inspiration can happen anywhere and comes from various different sources and materials.

I was at a local shop and the detail and colour on this tea cup caught my eye.

I am not a collector of cups but I do enjoy a nice cup of vanilla herbal tea every once in while (shhh.... don't tell vanilla cappuccino!)

I have not created anything yet with this cup, but it's in my studio on a shelf and I glance at it every once in a while and know the perfect project with come out of it.

Weekend Madness

Well it's been a very full weekend!

I celebrated my birthday on Saturday and then on Sunday we celebrated Mother's Day.

For my birthday my husband and daughter took me out for a wonderful lunch and I recevied these great pair of Chanel sunnies!!!
They have a pink frame!!! Me Loves!

For Mother's Day we went for a filling brunch at our club with my Mother-in-law as well as some of my husbands siblings.
These were the flowers I received.

The brunch was fantastic! I started with a mimosa, then the assortment of food was unbeleivable! Anything from eggs to roast beef, potatoes to a chick pea salad and desserts to drool over.
I went up to the buffet 3 times, not counting dessert!!!!
Needless to say I was STUFFED after this.
Then we went flower shopping to finish off my hanging planters and then spent the day playing outside with our daughter.
Overall it was a great weekend!
I wish they could all be like this!

Turks and Caicos

Well we were going to vacation in the Turks and Caicos this past December during the holiday season, but the decision was made to late and unfortuantly there were no flights available.
We ended up spending the holidays at home which was fun!

I know that summer is only 40 days away and the weather is starting to get warmer but I would love to be able to sit on a beach drinking margaritas and having someone cater to my every wish.
Maybe because my birthday is tomorrow and then it's Mother's Day is why I'm thinking I need to be pampered.
Let's see what the next couple of days brings!

Update on The Birds

Well the birds have hatched!

When I took this picture it reminded me of the scariest movie of all time in my opinion

The Birds (1963) which is a modern Hitchcock thriller/masterpiece.

Every since watching this movie as a young girl I've been terrified of birds.

I love nature and am not one to leave some birds homeless, but I can't wait for them to fly away.

By the end of the summer I've got 3 baby showers and 1 wedding to attend. Which means that I'm in need of some gifts!

Well I've oh'd and ah'd over so many amazing banners on etsy but alas I just did not find one that suited my needs. So being the computer wiz that I am (well not really but I can usually stumble my way through to success) I created my own banner, check it out My Shop!
I'm very pleased with the way it turned out especially after so many trials and errors.
Since I've figured out how to create banners and being the entrepreneur that I am, I've made a couple more banners for my etsy shop.

The Big Day Cometh

That's right I've got a birthday coming up in a couple of days.
After searching and thinking of what I would like for my birthday this burberry umbrella really caught my eye!
I love the nova check pattern and it's small enough to fit inside my purse.
It's funny how as you get older the things you want for your birthday becomes simplier.
The ultimate gift for me this year would be a big hug and a smile from my daughter and spending some quality time with my family...
Well and maybe this umbrella as well.

Did Someone Say Custom...

Well I've just completed a rather large custom order for Greeting Cards.
It was a lot of fun coming up with some creative birthday and thank you cards.
Doing a job like this just re-confirms why I love creating and playing with paper.
Have an outstanding weekend

Nature is a Beautiful Thing

I'm no photographer but I will lay claim to taking both of these pictures.
I took the first picture at a local park where I took my daughter. She loved looking at the ducks and wanted desperately to touch them!
The second picture was taken outside of my house. I was surprised yet delighted to find that a bird had made her nest and laid her eggs in my hanging planter. The plants are long since dead and with the warmer weather upon us I felt the need to bring life back onto my front porch and lo and behold the beautiful bird beat me to it.
I did not want to disturb her nest so I secretly took these pictures and now I have a wonderful view of the nest outside my window.
I wonder when the eggs will hatch.....
I really need to replace that dead planter!

Recognized at Last!

It is so very exciting when your work gets recognized by people other than friends and family.
I was contacted by Smitherman & Barnwell and they selected my company along with others to be featured in their May Issue of their Designer Scoop Magazine.

Here is the link

Here is what they wrote:

Please Note:
For some of us who have the wonderful privilege to have a secretary or assistant - it’s nice to have them send out wonderful note cards. Designer Scoop recommends for you to take a peek at note cards by Pinky Creations, Lilnini, Micasita and Lula Boutique. From the soft robin blue egg style to the Nostalgic Barbie wanna-be. Furthermore, all you have to do is sign your name and feel like a movie star with such luxury note cards

It's so exciting.........
