stone soap

It has been pretty busy these past few weeks. Just trying to keep up with everything and make it all happen. 
I am working on a baby shower this weekend and the following another lovely backyard wedding. Last weekend my great friends Laura + Kevin got married (more pictures and fun to come). 
I went to my friends blog Cheap Frills + Thrills and she had posted about these amazing soaps. Their are a lot of stone like soaps out their, but look how cool these ones look like. I would like one of each and to be able to pile them in every corner that needed soap. Get these and more at Shop Jeen

artifact uprising

This is how you make your instagram photo's beautiful. 
Also a great way to remember your wedding, wedding process, special party, holiday etc... 

I am thinking about using this idea as a wedding photo book. I want to find out how I can have all my loved ones send me their photo's and then make a cool book.

When I have the time, I will look into it and tell you about it. 

Until then, check it out here.



strawberry cream cheese

Strawberry cream cheese is the best and so easy to make when it is strawberry season. I got the idea from Fox in the Pine.

This is what you need:

container or brick of cream cheese
hand full of strawberries (about 6-8)
fine sugar

Put the strawberries and sugar in a food processor or blender and wiz until the straweberries are almost a liquid.
Add to the softened cream cheese and mix in until fully incorporated.
Cut up the remaining strawberries in to 1/2 inch piece and mix in. You don't have to do this if you don't want to, but I like the chunkiness!
That's it! Enjoy on your favorite toast or bagel. It will keep for about a week.
