One of my favorite designers shared her top 3 design tips that she follows.  Good food for thought!

I recently became aware of Flatterbox when a friend invited us to fill out a card for her daughter who was graduating from High School.  It's such a cute idea!  After choosing your type of box, card color, occasion, and number of cards you want included, you can send invites via e-mail for your friends to record their sentiments for the recipient.  Then, they are printed and sent inside the keepsake box.  What fun to read through a box full of good wishes or memories from friends and family!

We absolutely love this remote control outlet for our patio string lights.   We had outlets installed in the eaves, so the lights were simple to plug in, but we didn't want to be climbing up to plug them in and unplug them all the time.  This adapter plugs into the outlet, then we just keep the remote in a kitchen drawer and click all the string lights on and off with the push of a button!  We bought ours at Lowes, but I found the same one on Amazon too.

These Oui Floral Dinner Plates are so perfect for summer!

This tip is primarily for my blogger friends who edit photos using Picmonkey.  I learn how to use more and more tools on it all the time, and Crystal from The Weathered Fox just did a fantastic video on using Picmonkey to brighten photos.  This is a trick to use when some of your photo has good lighting, but other spots are too dark.  There have been so many times when I've needed a trick like this, I'm anxious to try it out.

Summer posted a dreamy home tour on Simple Stylings.  It's packed full of inspiration and eye candy!
