Peach Roses in Spring

Surprise! I have a new treat for ya'll that I've been working on. Lately, I've been really into hand written letters, both writing and sending them! Not only would I spend time with my handwriting and what I have to say, but i used special paper and packaged them neatly. And after all that work I put into my letter, the plain white envelope I was slipping it into just didnt do it justice.

So I thought to myself, if I were to receive a beautiful, hand written letter in the mail, how would I like for it to appear? Well, I developed a design for envelopes to stay together well, and have spent many days and night hand dyeing special paper.

With hundreds of new papers, I am ready to get stamping. I went out to a warehouse in L.A. and found a sale with hundreds of great stamps for a steal!!! I wish I had the time to take pictures so you could see how many options you have to chose from, but here's a few sneak peaks.

All these stamps you see done here can be used on tags as well, which I store bought and hand dyed. All envelopes are available in sets of 10 for only $6.50, or 20 for $12.00. Included in that are the number of tags with the stamp of you're choice and a sheet with vintage velvet lined seals for ideal closure!!!

Many more to come, so please be sure to drop by my etsy shop here!
If you want to order any, let me know and I'll start listing them
I like to post here and get some feedback first, you understand =]

Hope you all had a great holiday weekend! Valentines day was a sweet one over here, hubby woke me up with the usual backrub, but since it's Valentines I got a full body rub including feet =] I had been talking about how I wanted to eat more cultural foods recently, and I don't like breakfast in bed for 2 reasons. 1. I am never hungry until at least 2 hours after I wake up and 2. I love cooking with my man! With that being said, he romantically made plans for us to learn how to make crepes together! And to put it over the top we got strawberry syrup and fresh strawberries.

He actually had to work that day....=[ sad I know. But when he came home he definitely made up for it! We had bratwurst for dinner and he came home with a giant bouquet of valentines flowers and yummy chocolates along with my favorite wine. Oh did I say A bouquet of flowers? I meant two, he topped it off with peach roses!!!

For presidents day we enjoyed delicious Thai food before our adventure through the local botanical gardens, so gorgeous! We topped it off with a movie night and saw Paranormal Activity with sweetheart steak and organic potatoes for dinner. Let's say I'm a happy girl. Tell me about you're Valentines Day!
