paper love & some sponsor love.


last saturday night, mom and dad had a wedding shower to attend but mom forgot to buy a card...so i offered to make her one. it was a nice break from all the sewing i had been doing. i love paper-goodies - happy tape, scarpbook paper and twine. i love the feel of cutting out shapes like hearts and bunting flags. colored envelopes make me swoon. (fun fact: the shop started off with paper goods. crazy, right?)

another thing i love to do when i'm taking a break from sewing is finding new shops, blogs and sites! anyone else agree? some recent discoveries for me also include some of muchlove-illy's newest sponsors. like i've mentioned before, i'm excited to be able to introduce them even more.

what a fun line-up, right?! 
be sure to stop by these shops and sites for some funness. everyone of them has something exquisite to offer - whether it be sweet goodies from their shop, inspiration from their creative blog, or a venue for even more handmade goodness! i promise you won't want to miss these lovelies.  

hope you have an incredible weekend! i'm off to spend time with my Ryan (i call him my Ryan because my sister is married to a Ryan too) and with the family. there is a GA game going on (goooooo dawgs!) and i have  a craving to make red velvet cupcakes today. we also have a cute stray cat visiting our yard but it's driving Peyton and my mom nuts so we might have to take the little cutie to the shelter (i really don't want to take her to the shelter - i'd keep her if i could but mom hates cats and ashley is allergic). i love weekends!

[happy saturday, friend!]

  14. I love handmade cards. They're just so much sweeter to open than a store bought one! So much more love has gone into it. :) My mom makes beautiful cards, I think she might start selling some on Etsy!
