graduation invitations {printable}

I can’t believe my once-little nephew, Jacob, has graduated from 8th grade and will soon be FOURTEEN! He was such an adorable kid, and now he’s this strapping, young man-child. *tear* I adore him.

feature: vintage paper creations {sarah curry}

I love paper. All types. Especially the whimsical, beautiful kind. I am a push-over for anything from Paper-Source, Etsy or Papyrus. I could spend hours perusing these websites, and hours on end roaming around Paper-Source. Another favorite in the paper department is Minted.com. They are the cream of the crop for personalized stationery and cards… Continue reading feature: vintage paper creations {sarah curry}
