Did you know that it’s really hard to get work done while in Vegas? ‘Cause it is. Something about the crowds of people, neon lights, fantastic eateries, & party-all-night mentality in this city makes it a little bit challenging to focus on email…I swear, I’ve barely even gambled! (And I’m determined to win it all back tonight!) The truth is, I have been squeezing in quite a bit of work where I can as we ramp up for our big new site launch on Monday! Stay tuned for a new design, new name, and added features that will hopefully make this blog an even more fun place to stop by and explore. What are all of you up to this weekend? Hope it’s fab, and enjoy a few of my favorite links from the week!

While it always looks elegant, what I love most about letterpress printing is how it feels to the touch… the three-dimensionality just feels so luxurious. That said, you can imagine the ogling that ensued when I laid eyes on this destination wedding welcome invitation… letterpress on the front, sewn onto gorgeous fabric on the back. Textural heaven! Just thinking of all the possible font + print + color combinations gets me giddy. It might be best to keep this invite away from me, because something tells me I’ll have a hard time keeping my eyes and hands off of it.
While brainstorming ideas for a fabulous entrance to one of my client’s parties today… I stumbled upon this. A stunning, can’t-take-your-eyes-off-it fringed wall created for Nanashi in Paris by the paper artistes at Confetti Systems. (See when our love affair began, here.) Can you imagine a more festive welcome? Makes me want to don some sequins & pop open the bubbly!

Alright, my dears…I’ve put it off long enough. I’ve been mulling over various New Year’s resolutions for the past few days, and after being thoroughly inspired by Grace’s, Erin’s, Crystal’s, & Anne’s, I decided I was ready to put them into words. But it wasn’t until I came across Tolly’s post on creating a New Year’s word that all my thoughts started to become themes, and I was able to hone in on what my real focus is for the coming year. So, without further ado, my words for 2011…
It never fails: as soon as the holiday season comes to a close, and I’ve had my fair share of hot cocoa and cozy nights by the fire, my mind starts to drift to sunny days and a getaway to some far-off locale. Safari on the Serengeti…exploring the souks of Marrakesh…gazing at the ocean in Indonesia…
