DIY: Olive Hue Paper

Jane Jeon from Olive Hue Paper Goods is a total love. First off, she’s crazy talented. Second, she’s gone and created a custom download just for Grey Likes readers! We have some really lovely labels (bottom left) and favor tags (top right) for you to download, print and customize! Both come with various colors and I think they are so cute!

Here’s a peek at them, along with a little accompanying inspiration:

And the winner is…

First off, thank you, thank you, thank you for taking the time to fill out the Grey Likes Survey and helping me get a better handle on who you are, what you love, and what you hate! I’ve learned so much from your feedback and can’t wait to share with you all the exciting updates and improvements you’ll be seeing over the next few months. I’ve learned that your favorite posts are most definitely real weddings followed up by DIY Projects, which were a close second. Mostly, you are here for good ideas, which I’m hoping to track down for you, like a hound after bacon. (Hounds like bacon, right?)

Anyhow, I’m excited to announce our winner of the contest. I’ll be emailing her, but I wanted to share with you her comment, which just made me laugh! She wrote:

Grey doesn’t overuse words like ‘swoon’ and ‘drool worthy’ and ‘your special day,’ but the items, vendors and photos featured on this site are all of those things. The weddings that are shown represent an attainable fantasy–highlighting the creative and beautiful and unique, not just the expensive.

I absolutely love it!

I hope you all are enjoying little tidbits of the summer as we slide into mid-July. Perhaps, at this very moment, you are stuck in a freezing cold air-conditioned cubicle and you are dreaming of the weekend. You can smell the salty beach air, can’t you? Well, Friday is just around the corner! Hold tight…here we come, weekend!

Giveaway Extravaganza!

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this fantastic giveaway. The unbelievably talented photographer Cynthia Spivack would like to offer the winner of our contest a free photo shoot, which can be used for an engagement session, family shoot, baby shoot….you name it! I’ve put together a collage of her family photography for you to feast your eyes on. Cynthia specializes in family photography (which has to be so hard…how does she get those wiley kids to look good on camera?) but loves couples as well!

If you think you’d like to win a free session with Cynthia (and after seeing these images, I don’t know who wouldn’t) then you’ll most definitely want to enter.

Here are the giveaway rules:

  • You can enter once per day PER GREY BLOG. Visit Grey Likes Baby and Grey Likes Nesting to enter again!
  • You must live in the SoCal area or be willing to travel to it. (Or you can give the free session to someone you love who does!)
  • You must use the session before the end of 2009.
  • To enter, simply leave a comment and tell us about one of your favorite photos by Cynthia.
  • Entry is closed at midnight, next Wednesday. We’ll announce the winner on Thursday.

So if you haven’t purchased a ring for your fella, I’m pretty sure this is the contest for you. Let me break it down:

Superior Wedding Rings is an online company that offers a HUGE selection of wedding rings. Their rings come in everything from ceramic to palladium, and in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Superior Wedding Rings is going to giveaway your choice of ring from their site (up to $120 in value). Here are a few samples of my faves:

2. Make a comment here and link to your post.

3. If you’re chosen as a winner, you’ll need to put up a permanent link to Superior Wedding Rings on your blog in order to receive your prize.

Easy as pie, gals. Easy as pie. And if you don’t have a blog, what the heck? You just might want to start one. The cut-off date for entry is Tuesday, April 28 at midnight. We’ll pick the winner at random!

On your mark, get set, go!!!!

Giveaway Wednesday…er, um, Thursday?

Power cord failure put us down for the count yesterday. But I think this giveaway will most certainly make up for it. For those of you that are working on getting your new nest ready, I think you may find yourself falling in love with the fine art photography from Trever Hoehne.

Trever’s work is like Monet meets Rothko meets film. I seriously can’t name a photographer I love more than Trever. How luck am I that he’s willing to part with a limited edition print? What the heck? I want to enter this giveaway! 







Leave a comment, and tell us what you love. The randomly chosen winner will receive their choice of an 8×8 print from Trever’s Blurry Things site.

Here’s a shot of Trever’s work in a gallery. This is what my walls aspire to:
