See, this is how I love to do pattern. It’s noncommittal, unlike a 96″ sofa!

The correspndence cards are absolutely beautiful. How fun it would be to get one in the mail. Great giveaway idea!

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!

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!

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.

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.
