Its out ! The new Gift Guide from Figure Magazine with a fabulous one page spread of my new Baroque Damask Wedding invitations !!
I am so excited as my Invitations and the Baroque Dessert Plate Sets from Pink Paris Design's "Pink Boutique" are on a FULL page. My page is as big as Bloomingdales featuring darling sparkly headbands from Juicy Couture ! Who knew ! I really didn't expect to have this big of a feature so as you can tell I am extremely excited.
The cover of the issue is Winona Judd and has a lovely article with great photos.
Granted, I am very proud of the invitations and with the professional photography and glossy paper of the issue they are to die for !
The invitations are available at my new web site PaperNosh.com or on the PaperNosh.Etsy site and can be ordered with or without the German Crystal Buckles, substituting a lovely looped knot using the black double faced satin ribbon. They are fully customizable with different fonts and many beautiful colors available for the damask and Tea Length Envelopes.
Read my previous feature on the designing and creation of these pretty wedding invitations here

Cindy Iverson of the blog Dusting In Pearls has done the most wonderful feature on my designs for Paulette Designs Inc, which is PaperNosh.com and PinkParisDesign.com and in my Zazzle store pauletteparis.
It always amazes and thrills me to see my designs published and to have others appreciate my efforts. Cindy herself is a wonderful artist and we discovered each other through our Zazzle stores respectively ! Rosehaven Cottage on Zazzle has Cindy's wonderful designs that I know my readers will love, so make sure to check it out. Cindy's blog Dusting In Pearls is a must read for that Domestic Diva that "hopes" to reside in all of us !
Merci Beaucoup to Cindy for the wonderful thoughts, compliments and the divine feature !

Creating this card out of my Marie Antoinette treasures was the greatest fun. I love love love Halloween and had this in my head for a full year before getting down to business and creating a card design.

When I saw her picture, it was amazing as I thought she looked so much like me. I had to write and tell her I thought we were twins separated at birth ! ( I flattered myself ! ) It did turn out that we were the same age, even though the likeness I believe comes from some common ethereal interest more so than our physical similarities. Over the last year we have discovered a common thread and a kindred spirit that reaches across the pond and have formed a fun and enjoyable friendship.
Later, Barbara worked for David Bowie, another fabulously talented and legendary star.
Rolling Stone magazine ranked David Bowie 39th on their list of the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time .
The years Barbara spent with these talented people during the height of fashion and the English Invasion must of been so memoriable. I would of loved to have witnessed the goings on at King's Road in London in the late 1960's and early 70's !
You can purchase Barbara Lowe's wonderful designs at her Etsy store
Please contact Barbara through her Etsy store," lovethatjewellery " AKA "A Queen's Royal Rocks "if you are interested in exquisite custom jewelry made just for you !

This is a true moment of love for all of us. Fair warning, you will cry, I don't know if its just the video or the song. I cried my eyes out ! The View aired this video, but, I don't watch too much TV, so my friend, the darling Donna ( my son's lovely ex-girlfriend and my "adopted" daughter:) knew how much I would love seeing this, and I knew my readers would love it too. Take just a minute out of your day and enjoy this sweet love story.

PauletteParis. The great thing about having them for sale there is that you can customize them to fit your business, you can have the design front and back, and you get a beautiful choice of papers, and professional design. They even have the sparkling Stardream paper stock that you can choose or one that is called "Indestructible". Nice when you think that you want your recipient to remember you and your business, and not have your pretty card end up in the dreaded "circular file". Plus they have a great selection of fonts to make your name or logo look super !

On my great search for the best Macaron in the US I happened on Mark It With A "G", in a funny sort of way, looking for someone to do some flash for my new site. How do you like that ?
Mark It With A G is in Shelter Island and owned by a delightful couple who it seems have traveled the world, to arrive back "home" and now have a fabulous French patisserie shop, making a Macaron that could, and does rival a Pierre Herme or even the illustrious LaDuree.
I think more people read my blog for my references to Macarons than almost anything. Plus the recipe I listed to make your own.
So this I want to share with you all~~ Order some for yourself now ! It just has to be the ultimate indulgence, and this little patisserie has to be the best of the very best for those of us who can't travel to Paris each time we want to indulge !
These photos were taken by me right as I opened the package, and before I wanted to take a bite out of each flavor ! Who could resist ! Thank you so much Mark It With A "G", you are magnificent. If I only could speak French, but you know what I mean !!

Written by "Miss Milkshake" on Wedding Bee and titled "Calligraphic Inspiration", Miss Milkshake included me with some very illustrious artist in her blog entry saying:
"Here are some calligraphic inspirations I found so far. I love how they are all international artists, and that they also happen to take great photos."
Other artists include those from Russia, Mexico, and Brazil, plus me here in the US. Woo Hoo ! I checked out each and everyone she referred to and they are all such talented calligraphers.
My work she included was my calligraphic bird stationery with the beautiful fonts. I created these early on and they have always been a big hit with my customers. I now print them on 110 lb Lettra Letterpress paper with my new Epson stylus printer. With the new heavier and softer papers they are so luxurious. Once the German Glass Shard Glitter is applied they become a one of a kind piece of art that I actually have framed here in my office they are so pretty. Some of my clients have even said they have a hard time sending them all and usually hang on to at least one for themselves. Quite a compliment from them and to be blogged about also.
Thank you Miss Milkshake and Wedding Bee.

You can choose from a package that has the images chosen for you, or you can do like I did and scroll through them all and pick and chose exactly what you want. They have greeting cards, the mini business cards and great laptop stickers if you want to junk up your space. At least the art will be top notch and fun. I must of gone through all 280 pages of art work to decide what little vignettes I wanted for the mini business cards that they offer until I discovered two of my favorite artists, Susan Mitchell, and Kayo Tamiashi.
You can upload your own images too so the possibilities are endless. I wanted my little set of mini cards for little enclosure gifts to my customers in Etsy when they receive my gift wrapped stationery sets. Just another one of those things Ive learned while being a part of Etsy. Everyone seems to play so nice in the sandbox.
Susan Mitchell also has an Etsy store that is fun to check out. Its called " Its A Whimsical Life"
I wanted to buy the store out, and may go back and get more ! Back to work now......my own !

If anyone has seen my work you know how obsessed I am with this time period. The clothing, the hair, the colors, the satin and lace.
This is a breathtaking miniature of a young Antoinette, from the collection of her mother. They say Marie was approximately 14 years old when this was painted.
Oh my, another lovely image of macarons from LaDuree ! I can't resist. Not only the colors and that warm gorgeous pink but the design on the logo. Yummy! Food as art once again. If I could figure out how to make a card design out of a macaron from LaDuree I would do it !
