Check out these HOT Chicks…and Bunnies.

I found these adorable paper chicks and bunnies on etsy the other day.

From the mibostudio shop at etsy , you basically purchase a PDF of these adorable creatures, print on a heavy paper/cardstock and assemble at home. Just in time for Easter!
UK based mibo says that they only take about 5 – 15 minutes to assemble, so I would imagine that with a bit of adult guidance this is a fun project with the kids or those that are kids at heart.

Hudson Grey

I've just got to say it: I love this little boy's name! If I wasn’t good friends with his mom, I would steel this name and my own future son (one that is not yet a twinkle in my eye, so no getting any ideas people) would answer to Hudson Grey. Maybe I will just tweak it to Hudsen Gray….hmmmmmm…

A B C D E F...

I'm a big font dork, so just for kicks, I decided to create a little 'G' collage.

Actually when I was young, and first learning cursive in the 3rd grade, I decided that anyone with the letter G in their name was just down on their luck. I never liked writing Gs, they just never appealed to me.

So, of course, fate would have me fall in love with a 'G'. Now I am a big fan!

Also another change in taste: I used to think that orange and green were hideous colors...little did I know that they would some day become my favorite. This just goes to show that you never know what you are going to be when you grow up!

Another one...

Well just to prove a point here you go...I am for sure an ALL IN blogaholic.

I found another site that is AMAZING especially to the paper lovers out there. check it out: Oh So Beautiful Paper

On this site she posts about one of my favorite forms of paper design: Cut Paper. Not only do I love the look and delicacy of cut paper, but I also love the process of creating the art as well. It is tedious but very therapeutic. I will be sure to post a photo later of one of my own original cut paper works, but for now, here are some pretty fabulous works by Joseph Bagley

Hello, my name is Megan and I am a Blogaholic.

Yes it is true. I tweeted about this about a month ago, but it is getting bad. Once I visit a blog, I can’t stop clicking through to new blogs that the blogger recommends. It is a vicious cycle that I do not want to end.

So I have decided to contribute to the delinquency of other blogaholics out there and add a list of my own.

Eventually I will post the blogs I follow somewhere on my site, but here are some of my recent discoveries and favorites:

Black Eiffel - Design
well, about all lovely things.

Not only a great site to buy stationery but also a great blog for inspiration

Oh Happy Day! - Design and Events
a crafty blog that is not your grandmother’s craft show

Snippet & Ink - All things Wedding

And OMG the MOTHER-LOAD: Blog it Forward has an AMAZING list of lovely blogs to check out!

That is it, my day is wasted…or maybe just got a little bit better!

Gotta Have It!

A good friend of mine, and follower of my blog, told me last night that she just has to have the Fruit Note Pads from my previous post. So I did a little research and found them for sale in an etsy shop. They are a little more than the average post it pad, but fully worth it for this amazing design!

So get your credit card ready, click here and enjoy!

Oh, the JOY of Office Supplies!

Every once and a while when I walk into an office supply store, I get a little giddy. I think that it stems from wearing a uniform from K-8th grade and having to express myself through accessories like cool pens, pencils and erasers…not to mention florescent tube socks and neon slap bracelets.

In keeping with my love for office supplies here are a few items that everyone should know about:

1. 500 Pencils

2. Happy Tape

3. Post It Fruit by DBros

4. The Wall Sticker Company

(maybe not so office-y but still pretty fabulous!)
