Beaded Bookmark!!!

Sébastien and I got married in Punta Cana back in 2008.  Since we had a ''Destination Wedding'' we didn't want the wedding favors to be too big and they absolutely had to travel well.

We decided bookmarks would be great and this is what we came up with:


I made the bookmarks in our wedding colors.  The pink bookmarks went to the ladies and the aqua bookmarks went to the men.


Pretty cute, don't you think?



Everyone loved the bookmarks!!  Bookmarks make great wedding favors even when you're not having a destination wedding.  :)

Sébastien, Gabrielle and I on our wedding day:


And of course... you can't have a destination wedding without a TRASH THE DRESS session:


I didn't do a step-by-step of the bookmarks, however if you have ANY questions, please ask away :)

Have a GREAT day!!!







P.S. I'll be linking to these Parties.

Product Review - Made By Munchie's Mama




Last week I receive a package from Made By Munchie's Mama!!!


Like I've mentioned many times before; packaging/presentation is SUPER important!!  Made By Munchie's Mama certainly delivers when it comes to presentation!!!!

Look at the beautiful turquoise box with a wonderful label and decorations... AMAZING!!!

Oh and her business card is super cute!!!

Ok ok, enough about the packaging... and on to the wonderful necklace.

Isn't it pretty?  I love the fabric frills and the cute button with the little pearls.

The necklace is adjustable and really well made.  It's sturdy so it will never lose its shape.

Here I am sporting the cute as a ''button'' (haha) necklace:

Do you want to see more Made By Munchie's Mama creations?



She has bunch more creations on her Etsy Shop.... she even has hand stenciled wood sign!!  She's one creative lady!

Made By Munchie's Mama has a blog and you can find her on Facebook.  You should really check them out.

If you are looking for a unique gift for someone and HEY even for you.... I totally and completely recommend Made By Munchie's Mama!!  She's SUPER SWEET... and you won't be disappointed...I promise!


P.S. I heard from a little birdie that you should go and visit Made By Munchie's Mama on Facebook..... Apparently as of 10am PST (today Feb. 24) there might just be a surprise waiting for you....

Have a great one!

Loop Earrings for 1$!!!

Gabrielle LOVES to wear my earrings.  It doesn't bother me so much, expect when she wears them to school.  I'm often worried that she'll lose them at school and I won't see them again.

Yesterday morning I was on the hunt for CHEAP loop earrings for Gabrielle.

Here they are:


Of course... I started out with this:

1 package of Earring Hooks and 1 package of Fashion Chain Link Oval.
I paid 1$ for each package.

Step 1:
Open the packages:

Step 2:
Take out little pliers (or tweezers just like I did hehe) and open the bottom loop of the hooks:


Step 3:
Insert the Oval in the opened loop:

Step 4:
Close the loop and voilà:


They are so darn pretty that I had to try them on myself:

Lucky for me, the package came with two Fashion Chain Link Ovals....which means: ONE pair for me TOO!! AWESOME!!!

Have a GREAT day!!

To Watermark or not to Watermark?

Do you put your name/logo on the photos you share on the web?

I've been debating if I should put my logo on my photos.  Not because I don't want to share my photos... it's the complete contrary.. I want to make sure if my photos get lost on the web... whoever finds them can find me : )

With the current Pinterest craze going on, what if someone re-pins but not with my site... and then someone comes across my projects and wants more info.. but can't get them because they can't find me?!

Now, if I do decide to put my logo on my photos... should I go WAY back and add my logo to all my previous photos... or just start putting my logo on them from now on?

What do you suggest??
