I adore these handmade tiles which would look great on your wall alone or in a grouping.

Do you know a bride who is in need of accessories for her wedding this summer? A Stylish Design is a new shop that has a variety of floral accents to make her day perfect. Every bride wants her wedding to be a perfect extension of herself and her groom. Amy, the maker behind the shop, has always loved designing, but it wasn’t until her own wedding that she really discovered her creative passion, so she really understands the attention to detail that brides want. Each of her pieces can be custom made to match your style & vision- no two pieces are alike.
After struggling to find a job specific to her field, Amy took the leap into selling her handmade goods. With a degree in design and her love of weddings, she’s discovered the perfect mix in starting her own business.
I love my pillows. I’m a self-taught at sewing, but have taken classes to learn how to do things a little more advanced. So, I’m looking forward to making more custom made ring-bearer pillows.
When designing her own wedding, Amy found it difficult to find unique, customized, affordable options and was inspired to help other brides with these important details. Since each wedding is unique, A Stylish Design can customize the details to match your specifications. Amy will also be offering other wedding design services through her website.
I’m inspired to help you make your wedding a memorable one and will approach each design with uniqueness & creativity.
So if you’re a bride to be, know a bride to be, or just like floral accents, go check out A Stylish Design.
The lovely personalized stationery above is from up up on Etsy.
I’ve been designing new posters for my etsy shop the last couple of days so I’ve been thinking about patterns big time. How much is too much, and how little is too little?
When it comes down to it – the number one rule is – if you like it go with it!
Having said that I’ve noticed a trend recently that I personally like a lot. I think for a while pattern was everywhere – think bold in your face patterned shirts, homes decked out to the max with vibrant designs. Perhaps to counterbalance this – we recently saw minimalism take center stage. While still popular, lately I’ve noticed a new trend – mixing both trends in a fun way. Imagine simple interiors, with bright pops of color and patterns here and there to create visual interest. It’s a look I love personally, at times I find the minimal look can be cold – but too much color and pattern can be overwhelming for me. When you mix the two – I find a balance there that is really beautiful.
Here are some fun finds that I want to share – all with beautiful patterns and colors certain to brighten up you home or stationery collection.
The gorgeous business cards on the left are from the shop of Hong Kong based designer, Eva – Oh Smile. I loved learning a bit more about her and seeing all the wonderful inspiration she collects from all over the internet on her blog. Bangkok-based Be Still has a great line of patterned pillows – a perfect way to give your living room or bedroom that fun pop of color. Byrdie Graphics make beautifully patterned wall decals – just one more way to add a pop of color or pattern to your home.
If a room in your home needs just that extra “something” to feel complete, do consider adding a bit more color and a lovely pattern here and there to give it a fun look! You’ll find lots to choose from on Etsy and at your local fabric store if you’re a fan of sewing!
Beautiful art made from pedestrian post it notes. Tiny views and glimpses are enough.

I’ve been sewing for going on 10 years, and the past few have been devoted to clothing. I am self-taught and don’t care much for patterns, so I only have made a few basics that I use. Sewing should be fun and intuitive in my opinion, therefore I have a fondness for ‘winging it’ and ‘seeing what happens’.
