Doggy Notes

Love these notecards from Fancy Schmancy! If only for the obvious fact that they're super cute, but you can also have them personalized by choosing your own color, dog silhouette, and typeface. Best of all 50% of the proceeds from the sale will be given to Rescuezilla, a New York City pitbull rescue group, whose goal is to "Foster, Adopt, Save"
Design with a cause, now that's what I'm talkin'bout :-)

Max Wanger Photography

When I get married (if the day comes that I can ever be so still) this will be the guy shooting my engagement photos. Come to think of it, scratch that...this might be an affair I want all to myself ;-P

I absolutely love his composition and use of colorful props...
That sapphire Ring Pop is genius!
