A picture is worth a thousand words.

August 9, 2009


So the other day, I was looking for some inspiration for a banner for one of my clients. I stumbled across this site called Wordle.net.

Wordle is a toy for generating “word clouds” from text that you provide. The clouds give greater prominence to words that appear more frequently in the source text. You can tweak your clouds with different fonts, layouts, and color schemes. The images you create with Wordle are yours to use however you like. You can print them out, or save them to the Wordle gallery to share with your friends.

You can do a number of things with wordle.

-Make personalized art prints or t-shirts

Also, if you have kids or teach you can use Wordle to stimulate learning

Be Creative. Reinvent your storage.

June 16, 2009

This chick has a secret to share. Well it’s not really a secret if you have ever been to my home. I am a clutter bird from knick-knacks to my third grade science paper, check one of my closets and you will find it. I have a love affair with stuff!

But lately, since I’m getting older and the thought of moving all this stuff to a new place has caused me to do some downsizing in my life.

To all the pack chicks like myself, I’ve read that if you just do a purging you will end up right where you started. You have to make a lifestyle change, just as you would with losing weight. Check out clutterdiet.com to get tips on how to reduce the clutter in your life.

Here are some tips that I have used in the last few months.

Be creative with your storage.
1. Once I started getting rid of clutter my first thought was to buy all these cute new boxes for storage. But my sister was more creative. I had bright colored chip bins in my kitchen that were used for my son’s birthday party ages ago. They became bins for crayons, stray pens, and markers.

2. My old coffee table fit perfectly in my closet, and became the perfect place to store the bins, and place laundry baskets on.

3. I bought a shoe organizer, so I no longer needed all of the old NIKE shoe boxes. But the NIKE shoe box forced me to hunt down every stray photo in my home and put it away until I have time to get to my scrapbooking.

4. I have mountains of art work in waiting, I’ll post some tips about that displaying art work during another post. But a trick I learned is to grab an unused pizza box and use it for art work storage. It is deep and wide enough to hold tons of art, inexpensive, and does not take up a lot of space.

5. An underutilized drawer in my bathroom became the perfect place to tuck magazines.

Do you have any good tips to share?

Breakfast at Tia’s – My Top 5 for Your Tiffany Wedding

April 28, 2009

Ok, so not really… And I guess I must be honest, I’ve never even seen the movie. But I do like the sound of a Breakfast at Tia’s brunch type doo hickey.

While I’m planning my Breakfast at Tia’s I wanted to be honest… I got the ideas from a few friends and friends of friends that have used the Tiffany theme for their bridal showers and weddings. I’ve always thought that it was a beautiful color palette, ever since my girl Toni Braxton tied the knot in 1998.

On to my list of my favorite things for the modern Tiffany Bride…

1. Invitations: Modern Tiffany
Wedding Paper Divas has a lot of nice invitations. This invitation has the Tiffany blue, but the black & white toile adds a modern spin to the them.

2. Favors: GO Green

What better way to show your commitment to each other, than by showing your commitment to Planet Earth. These Seed Cards frolm Beau-Coup are a great way of going green, being chic, and still carrying out the Tiffany theme.

3.Bridesmaid Gifts: Jewelry

Jewelry is always a nice touch, especially with a Tiffany theme.
But a customized box like this gives it a contemporary edge.

4. BridesMaid Dresses

Saw this dress on David’s Bridal. It seems very modern day Audrey Hepburn.

5. Reception Decor
This picture is from Garcelle B.’s Baby Shower. I think the colors are perfect and the decor is simple and elegant.

Hope you enjoyed this post. For more Tiffany themed inspirations check

Chick Bit: Duct Duct Goose

April 22, 2009

Today I saw the coolest thing… Designer Duct Tape. Do you remember McGyver? If not, he’s like 24’s Jack Baur. That man could get his way out of anything. If you are handy(or atleast want to look the part) and want to be chic with it you have to order some. It’s only $10 bucks on spoonsisters.com (One of my new favorite sites). Think outside the construction site on this one and let your imagination soar. Spiff-up an old cane, decorate a worn-out picnic table for a barbeque, spruce up a rusty bike; the possibilities are endless.
