    Love the cards! Very cool. Love the blog! I’d enjoy seeing more ideas on casual entertaining. :) Thanks for all you post!

  4. Lauren says:

    Such cute stationary! I’ll have to get some. My guy is a med student and I am constantly leaving him little notes when I travel for work. These would be prefect!

    Keep up the good work – blog is great! Looking forward to fresh summer ideas!

    Beautiful site. I love seeing product features, there are so many great finds out there I’ve found from yours and other blogs!

    I’ve been looking for fun wedding invites and patterns…and I love the modern look of these!

  10. ikkinlala says:

    Very pretty cards!

  11. Tami H says:

    I love all things paper…these are great! As far as the blog, I always appreciate budget friendly ideas.

  12. tyffaknee says:

    oh my goodness! So cute and mod!

  13. hiphostess says:

    wow – these comments & suggestions are great! so far I’m seeing a trend in wanting to see more wedding stuff, stationery items, budget-friendly ideas, and theme party ideas. all very good to know :)

    Christy – great idea on the “look for less”. Kind of like when magazines show a $600 dress and then a similar style for $50, right? This would be fun, we can definitely start doing this :)

    Gersoncurse – you’re 100% right about the categories. I’ve actually started working on it – it’s just taking a while since every post has to be republished once it’s labeled :0 but I agree it will make the blog a much better resource and it should be done sometime next week :)

    thanks for the suggestions, everyone! keep ’em coming!

  14. Natalie says:

    I love stationery! And these designs are so cute!

    One thing I’d love to see more of on this blog are hostess gift ideas. I think being a gracious guest is often just as important as throwing a great party!

  15. Jeremy & Roshelle says:

    I just love your blog, I’m a newbie so I’m still exploring it, what a great giveaway! Roshelle E.

  17. Jessica says:

    I love those cards!

  18. Alexandra says:

    Love this giveaway! Beautiful designs…It would be great to see hostess gifts as well as gift ideas for bridesmaids or for parties among best friends. I plan parties all the time to keep friends across the country close and would love to see some novel and pretty gift ideas.

  19. liz says:

    Oh wow! these are so pretty!

  20. Laura says:

    Would love these, thanks for entering me! With regards to your question, I’m always looking for wedding stuff as my wedding is next summer. Particularly cheap finds, indie stuff that I’d never find on my own, anything Canadian, stationery products and table/room decor ideas.

  21. jamiehdesigns says:

    Lovely cards! I especially like the “cheers” one. I think you’re doing a fantastic job with this blog. I too would love to see more “theme party” ideas, esp. for cinco de mayo!

  22. Doug says:

    I am a notecard addict and have trouble giving them away if I like them too much (I usually wind up framing them). So please enter me!

    I love your blog, but wouldn’t mind seeing more entries on where to find unique invitations.
