catching up with the inbox

Cake Topper - Tree with Leaves and Birds on Oregon Black Walnut Base
{ tree with leaves and birds cake topper by lintandlavender

tonight i went to an incredibly more-fun-than-expected papersource workshop (i recommend!) and learned how to do crafty things with recycled paper. i now own a bone folder. life is very good.

catching up with my overstuffed, under-replied-to inbox, we have:

  • brooklyn-based jezebel stationery, charming "correspondence for the vagabond heart," reports she now makes custom invitations. unique and lovely. (this post on her blog caught me off-guard -- i feel the same.)  
  •  staggered -- john writes from the UK's '"number one men's wedding website -- we know this for a fact because we're the only one," charming in an entirely different way than jezebel stationery. news you can use, like rated iphone wedding apps, all in delightfully accented prose.
perhaps of interest:
  • TLC writes to let us know friday is "thank god it's bride day" on TLC. i don't have tv (only internets for procrastination in this house, missy) and have never seen say yes to the dress (5th season premiere 9ET, per email) but i could use some popcorn+couch hours.
  • chicago-area folks: check out -- i never understood the purpose of fondant icing (eat it? peel it off? ball it up and throw it at your siblings?) anyway. why does dessert have to be immobilized in a sheet of sugar-candlewax? cream cake co. bakes from scratch and only uses sweet cream icing. mmm.
  • TLC's Perfect Day Giveaway, starts Friday for 4 weeks, grand prize = Kleinfeld VIP NYC experience, see this clip for more info.
  • Hearts on Fire's The Perfect Moment (notice theme of perfection, yes?) giveaway -- is a facebook contest through june 20th to win $10k diamond jewelry, info and entries here
