Sometimes a picture is all you really need..

Can you believe that these are cookies? Look at the ruffles.. I LOVE ruffles but I am certain I could not bring myself to consume this piece of art.

So, now that I have dug myself out of the photo shoots, the piles of paper and 'inspiration' on my desk and returned the emails that reproduce in the night I can finally share all of my exciting news.  So, out of the two styling events for my paper designs not only one but BOTH were featured in the same week on Amy Atlas Events, Hostess with the Mostess and Chic and Cheap Nursery.  I was walking on air the entire morning of Oct. 14 when I saw my name, little old Libby Lane Press, in lights (ok, not really lights) on Amy Atlas' blog featuring my Birds of a Feather Halloween photo shoot.  Pinch me-- really, my first featured debut was on the Queen of Dessert tables blog. Does it get any better than this? Why yes, it gets equally as good.  The Honeybee Gender Reveal was featured on Hostess with the Mostess on October 18. {Insert child-like squeal here}. And then if all of that wasn't enough, the oh so patient and sweet Nicole from Chic and Cheap Baby Nursery featured the Honeybee photo shoot on her darling site on October 20.

For those of you that know exactly what goes into a styling event you know this was no easy feat, however I worked tirelessly through the night for many nights, coordinated with talented and kind vendors and met new and creative people along the way and I would do it all again in a minute. Well, matter of fact.. I am ! Get ready for Hanukkah and Christmas. Since we celebrate both in our house you can expect dessert tables for both.. {did I really just say that}?

Thanks for spreading the Libby Lane love and I am looking forward to seeing where this roads takes me..

Texture, please

I am a huge fan of anything with texture. I adore ruffles, love bows and my current fav for fall {and anytime really} is BURLAP.  Who knew that something with such an industrial sounding name could be so pretty and add just the right about of girly-ness while not being pink and flowery.

So, if you need to add a twist to a floral arrangement try a burlap ribbon instead of satin or grosgrain.  If you like to add texture to your walls, try a burlap matting to your framed picture. Or my personal favorite.. use it to make a tablecloth.. ruffles and burlap-- now that is like tomato soup to my grilled cheese sandwich.
