post No.483 Hitched Happened….

Wow.  Last night was HITCHED and it was more amazing than we could have ever imagined to say the least!  There was confetti flying, people dancing, fun music, delicious food, and creative beauty everywhere!  Good times all around.  To all of you who came out thanks for making this an epic event.  For all of you who couldn’t, I will be recapping with some photos this event and the creative inc. party event, as soon as we get all the pictures in. Stay tuned for that but for now, here are a few below taken from my phone…

We just received the new collection of Kate Spade Paper at the shop, including adorable sticky note sets, 2011 calendars, notebooks, writing kits, and agendas.  I am completely girl-ing out over how cute these illustrations are by Jenni Bowers.  Seriously though …  snowcaps, 3d glasses, postage stamps, beach umbrellas, and tandem bicycles? Could this get any better?

P.S below are some shots from the 2011 calendar…
