Make Everyday an Occasion

or at the very least make every occasion magical and special. I’ve been really inspired lately creating these special occasions cake toppers! Oh man, I’m so in love with them that if it was appropriate/possible I would married them. Yep, that’s how much I heart them! I’ve been using my Cricut Explore and it has open up so many design possibilities that I cannot believe I didn’t get it sooner. Sorry I’m gonna gush some more about these cake toppers…rustically elegant and magically whimsical all in one! From the ribbons to the floating gold stars and birds and blossom and the white birch wood paper that it was cut from. I imagined that’s what dreams are made of. Every kid and grown up alike should have a day like that. I’m reminded of a passage from the book “The Brothers Karamazov” by Fyodor Dostoevsky.

“You must know that there is nothing higher and stronger and more wholesome and good for life in the future than some good memory, especially a memory of childhood, of home. People talk to you a great deal about your education, but some good, sacred memory, preserved from childhood, is perhaps the best education. If a man carries many such memories with him into life, he is safe to the end of his days, and if one has only one good memory left in one’s heart, even that may sometime be the means of saving us.”

And I believe that truly with all of my being. There are some memories that I hold dear to my heart and made me who I am and in times of despair, frustration, etc…I think back on those moments and I’m fine again.

Soooo..are you ready to see these lovelies I’ve been gushing about?!?!? I hope you adore them as much as I do and if you don’t…that’s okay too. 😀

They are available on my etsy shop if you want to create a special memory (although I will be sad to part from it..yes yes I have a problem). I’m working on baby shower, congratulations, etc. themes as well. Did I mention I really enjoyed creating this photo setup?!

Make it special today because we are not promised a tomorrow.
