Happy 122nd Birtdhay!

Today the Eiffel Tower turns 122. It was on March 31st, 1889, that the Tower had been finished in record time – 2 years, 2 months and 5 days – and was established as a veritable technical feat. Ever since it has been an icon present almost daily in our lives. Everywhere we turn, there's a piece of art, fashion, object or advertising that includes "La Tour Eiffel". It's definitely in my to-do list of places to visit.

Organize It!

very, exceedingly, exceptionally, especially, extraordinarily, in the extreme, tremendously, immensely, vastly, hugely, intensely, acutely, singularly, uncommonly, unusually, decidedly, particularly, supremely, highly, remarkably, really, truly, mightily; informal terrifically, awfully, terribly, devilishly, majorly, seriously, mega, ultra, damn, damned, ever so, real, mighty, awful, way, darned, gosh-darn; archaic exceeding. antonym slightly, barely.

This is the best description I give to myself when it comes to organization, even though I don't mention it too often for fear of sounding a bit creepy. For people like me, binders are soooo helpful. I have binders in every room, to keep recipes, school memories or office receipts and invoices.
I also offer a few binders in my Zazzle store and I'm definitely working on adding many many more for all those people out there a little bit like me.

Bridal Shower Trends

Theme bridal showers are very trendy right now. You can find a lot of ideas and inspiration for any theme you can think off. Of course, every great event starts with an original, eye-catching invitation, and here are just a few to please various current trends.

Western Bridal Shower Invitation
With a retro western saloon look, this invitation is great for a couple's shower.  More and more, grooms are being part of this fun day and the card unisex design is perfect to celebrate together.

Hawaiian Bridal Shower Invitation

Aloha! The Hawaiian theme never gets old. It's very colorful and upbeat. You can easily find tons of coordinating party supplies to go with it. Guests also can be asked to show up wearing a tropical shirt or dress.

Kitchen Bridal Shower Invitation
The kitchen is becoming very trendy. This is ideal for the domestic diva or the cook enthusiast. Even though a lot of couples live together before marriage, they can always use good quality kitchen gadgets and tools, china sets and gourmet food.

Flip Flops Bridal Shower Invitation
Thinking of the sound of the ocean? The beach theme is refreshing and colorful. It gives a breath of fresh air at the end of a long winter. It's a fairly easy theme to put together with party supplies, favors and summery drinks.

Moroccan Lantern Bridal Shower Invitation
An striking Moroccan theme may be the ideal one for the global bride. This invitation sets the mood for an exotic ambiance. Complete your celebration with rich pillows, golden tea candle holders and colorful scarfs.

Hope for Japan

Deeply saddened for the tragic events occurred in Japan, when a very strong earthquake and tsunami shook a portion of the country, I donated three t-shirt designs to Zazzle in an effort to collect funds to help the Japanese people. Royalties from these designs will be donated to charity.

Well... believe it or not, there's a lot you can do today like wearing a Pi t-shirt, getting a Pi computer wallpaper, reading Pi poetry or watching the movie Pi.

10 Reasons Why I Want an iPad 2

  1. It’s super cool! Thin, sleek, just beautiful.
  2. Hubby will be able to watch UFC fights on the iPad2 while I design greeting cards in our currently shared iMac.
  3. Hubby will also be able to play games, watch movies and shop on Ebay while I draw little flowers and butterflies in our currently shared iMac.
  4. It’s undeniable cool.
  5. I can watch movies while traveling in a bigger (than the iPhone) screen.
  6. I could finally try really, really hard and make the switch to e-books from traditional printed editions. I just love so much holding a book in my hands even though I know trees don’t appreciate it… but I promise I’ll try.
  7. I can use a bigger (than the iPhone) portable screen for all my social media needs! Yes, I said needs.
  8. Apps, apps, apps!
  9. Did I mention it’s cool?
  10. I get to add to this post 10 iPad cases you may want to check out, for all those iPads that will be for sale soon.
