Congratulations on winning the Sweetberry Love collection
origami stars and fortune cookies from Origami Delights!!!
Thank you EVERYONE who entered!!!
LOVED the quotes sent in and your fabulous feedback!!!
And especially thank you to Nedra from Origami Delights for hosting this FAB giveaway!!!


I want to introduce you to a FUN little shoppe on Etsy called Origami Delights.

Remember the "Love you to the Moon" baby shower that ended up being featured on Amy Atlas Events?


We used ADORABLE custom printed origami stars from Origami Delights as part of the shower decor.
Printed with the baby's name, these made a SWEET personalized addition to the shower details.

The products in the Origami Delights shoppe are simple little additions to any celebration.
And with the ability to personalize them, the uses are seemingly endless.

So...
with Valentine's Day fast approaching...
it was time for a collaboration between Origami Delights and Pen N' Paperflowers.
Using the "Sweetberry Love" Valentine's Day collection I released last week...
Here's what we came up with...

• secretly leave some behind on the kitchen table when leaving from visiting family/friends
• leave one behind on your little one's pillow
• pack some up in your child's lunch box
• have your child leave one or two behind for his/her teacher
• sneak one onto the seat of your spouse's car before they leave for work
• hide one in the medicine cabinet
• use these as a substitute for valentine's day candy (your child's teacher will LOVE you). *wink*
• leave these behind on the desks of your co-workers
• put one in the mailbox for your mail carrier

Get creative and make a game of it.
And get your kids involved too.

KEEPING IT REAL
I'm so crazy-busy getting caught up on orders I can barely keep my mind straight.
And would you believe:
Clara developed another fever two days ago, along with a cough.
Ema has developed a very painful sore throat.
J came home yesterday with flu symptoms he'd been fighting.
Guess we're all taking turns...
Grateful I'm feeling well enough to tend to everyone else.
And I'll be even more grateful when this cycle of illness is over.

A comment I'd like to see in a fortune cookie/quote...that's a hard one!

I love Great Expectations, especially this quote (we read it at our wedding- it always reminds me of the day I met my husband)

That was a memorable day to me, for it made great changes in me. But, it is the same with any life. Imagine one selected day struck out of it, and think how different its course would have been. Pause you who read this, and think for a moment of the long chain of iron or gold, of thorns or flowers, that would never have bound you, but for the formation of the first link on one memorable day.

Just wanted to thank you-- you helped inspire my dessert table for my All Pigs Are Beautiful farmer's market baby shower(just posted pictures on my blog).

I think this love quote is perfect for a fortune cookie:

You know you're in love when you don't want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams. ~Dr. Seuss

I love the quote "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." --Aristotle

I absoluetely love the fortune cookies in your designs and the stars are so adorable (I have a sister named Star, so I can see that her next bday party will be littered with paper stars).

I have two love quotes:
I love you - those three words have my life in them.

What I need to live has been given to me by the earth.
Why I need to live has been given to me by you.
