The Letter Z

Z is for ZED, the last letter in the alphabet (yes yes, I know in America we say “ZEE” but I thought this was a smidge more clever)

I also thought it appropriate to post the last letter of the alphabet on the last day of the year.

So my wish to all is for you to have a very safe and happy New Year’s Eve and may 2011 bring you joy and all that cheesy stuff you say at the New Year.

And finally the letter Z:

I feel like a debutante.

But I don’t get to wear a pretty white dress…darn…but the cover of the magazine I am in has a lovely white dress on the cover!


I took the plunge, I now officially advertise in a real live print magazine, Nebraska Wedding Day, and it is out on the shelves at your respective bookstore (well if you live in or near Nebraska that is).

I am pretty excited about this new exposure, not only because my ad is out there for tons and tons of brides to see but NE Wedding Day also took some of my sample photos and used them in their feature! Too fun! Take a look at my d├ębut to the wonderful world of wedding magazines.

 If the invites from the photo on the top left look familiar it is because they are Inkblot Invites!  See the close ups of these Butter Cream, Burnt Sugar and Diamond Invites Here!


And a teaser for the brides out there: In early January I will be featured on NE wedding Day’s Blog with a Friday Freebee and it is quite the grand giveaway…if I do say so myself!

SHOES, one of my happy places

Stop one minute…you have GOT to be kidding me. Did YOU know, because I never knew!?!?!?! (If you did know, I am giving you a dirty look through cyberspace for not telling me...grrrrrr.)

There is a shoe company online, Shoes of Prey, that you can design your own shoe, I mean really design one. You submit a drawing of a shoe and viola!, a real shoe comes out (well gets shipped to you, if the shoe came out of the computer, THAT really would be amazing!)

Check it out you can go from this:
To this:

Wow oh wow oh wow-y wow wow. I am almost speechless.

I am SO adding this to my wish list: a gift certificate for my own, one of a kind, couture shoe, designed by me!

Not to mention that these really would come in handy to all the brides out there searching for the perfect shoe…can’t find one? Well, design it yourself and you can check that off the to-do list!
(and not to worry, if you don't have a creative bone in your body, you can select a pre-designed option and customize it)

Well I must say, I may have to restrain myself.    Look out Shoes of Prey, here I come!

The Letter Y


Y is for yard work, as in please excuse all the yard work that has yet to be done (and is now covered in snow at the moment), but I had to show these before and after shots of my (exterior) home makeover!  It has been a long time coming (as you can tell from before photo taken in the spring, when the yard was green, and the end photo taken in the fall...and the yard is well...brown...but remember you are supposed to ignore that.)

BEFORE


AFTER

There are still a few updates to make, a bit of paint touchup, swapping the house numbers, and updating the mailbox at the curb, but you get a pretty good overall effect in this photo.  :)

The Letter W


W is for Winter....ugh.  I do not like winter.  It is cold and snowy....ugh. 

But I must look on the bright side of things!  Winter = Holidays and I am so excited for the holidays this year!   While many people may complain about spending time with family over the holidays, I revel in it!  I really do love my family, extended family and of course all my friends that make the trip back to Omaha over this festive season!

So I will put on my scarf, mittens, and hat (even though I am totally not a hat person, I really wish I were, but alas, I am not), hop out into the freezing cold weather and hope that my car seat warmers are in good working order.   Happy Winter everyone!
