Recipes: Mint Chocolate Oreo Cupcakes

Lauren of Crave. Indulge. Satisfy  and Half Baked was kind enough to share this awesome Oreo Cookie recipe. Come on, who doesn’t love Oreo cookies. Oreo has gone far beyond the traditional double stuffed cookie. They now have a range of flavors from Peanut Butter, chocolate berry burst, cool mint, and now birthday cake!! My favorite of all (although I have not tried the birthday cake yet) is the cool mint flavor. Some of you know how much I love chocolate and mint together. I love the combination so much that one Christmas, my husband filled my entire stocking with everything mint and chocolate. So yeah, I’m kinda obsessed. I gasped when I came across this recipe. Im sure if you are not a fan of mint and chocolate you can probably substitute them for the original oreo, or better yet the birthday cake oreo! I bet that would be amazing! I think I may have to try and make these treats for Easter.  Thanks Lauren and Half Baked for sharing this recipe! For this recipe, head on over to Half Baked

I’m not sure, but today Im rockin’ my hot pink nails and bright yellow shoes. Today as I was browsing pinterest, I came across these fabulous items!! Now I want to go shopping.

Hawaiian Plumeria Invitations- Semi Custom

Whoo hoo! My first design for the new Semi-Custom Invitation Line! For about a year and a half I’ve been talking about starting this line, and finally the time as come. Although, as of right now I only have one completed design, I promise there will be a lot more exciting ones to come.  For now, they will be located under the Custom Invitation Section of my website. Anywho, for those who do not know about my custom line, basically  it is a design that has already been created. Everything from your Save the Date, to your Wedding programs to your gift tags. Pick your design, pick the pieces you are interested in, hand me over your invite wording and I make it happen. Its fast, quick and best of all it’s a custom look without the custom price. What could be better than that?

When my husband and I were in Hawaii, we fell so much in love with the island that when we got back to Jersey, we were depressed for months. I really wanted to create this invitation suite for a couple who’ll fall in love with the island as much as we did. Pricing is not yet available online, but that doesn’t mean the design can’t be yours. If you are interested in having any of these pieces as part of your wedding invitation suite, please contact me at and I’ll send you over a price quote within 24 hours.

The 2012 National Stationery Show in NYC is fast approaching! In fact, I got my badge today! Not only am I going to the show under my own company name for the first time, I have submitted a few of my recent invitation designs into the LOUIE Awards! For those who are not familiar with the LOUIE Awards, they  are often referred as the “Oscars” of the greeting card industry. The LOUIEs celebrate the art, editorial and design of greeting cards. Not only does it cater to greeting cards, but wedding stationery as well.  I’ll find out sometime in March if I am nominated in any of the four categories. Crossing my fingers!!! Even if I’m nominated for something, I will definitely consider it an achievement. I also want share this amazing call for entries invitation designed by Tess Donohoe & Katy Greenspan
