non-traditional smores

Several years ago, I stumbled across a non-tradition recipe for smores that I still use to this day.

You see, I have never been a fan of warm, melted marshmallows. Sure, as a kid I loved to cram 3 marshmallows on a stick and wave them around in the campfire, but it stopped there. I simply prefer marshmallow at room temperature.

This non-traditional smore recipe that I use is very simple, and to me, it is the best way to prepare a smore.


• Hershey bars
• Graham crackers
• Marshmallow Creme
• peanut butter


1. Top 1 Graham cracker with the desired amount of peanut butter, chocolate, and Marshmallow Creme.

2. Eat and enjoy.

thank you card

Shortly after my own wedding, I sat down to begin the long process of writing thank you notes. While writing 145,354 notes {okay, okay, not that many, but it felt like it} I began wishing that I had something a little more stylish than the $0.99 packet of generic notes I had purchased. So, now, I am taking the liberty of designing my own personal collection of thank you notes. Something that really says "thanks."

Enjoy ♥

stylish business cards

I have always thought that Interior Designers have the most appealing business cards. If I am going to hire a decorator for my home, their business card is a piece of their talent that can really speak to me.

Here is the latest and greatest from yours truly ♥

i'm having a cupcake sweet tooth

Recently, I have had the urge to design something cupcake-themed, so that's exactly what I decided to do today. I'm not exactly sure what these will turn into, but here's a bit of my brainstorming.

Today I kept thinking about gray and yellow invitations and I don't know why. BUT, I went with the flow and created a simple engagement party invitation in yellow and coral. Check it out.

oreo truffle recipe

A couple of years ago, I took my first bite of Oreo Truffles and immediately had to get the recipe. Now, I want to share the recipe with you, and trust me, you will love these!


• 1 package of Oreo cookies
• 1 (8 ounce) package of Cream Cheese, softened
• White chocolate or Vanilla bark (you will need to buy enough for 32 servings)


1. Crush the entire package of Oreos using a food processor. Cookies should be very fine, not chunky.

2. Combine the crushed Oreos and the package of cream cheese in a large bowl. Mix together with your hands, mashing the cookies and cream cheese together.

3. Roll into 1" balls, and place on a wax-covered cookie sheet.

4. Freeze Oreo balls for 1 hour.

5. Remove Oreo balls from the freezer.

6. Melt the bark as instructed on the package.

7. Stick a toothpick into the frozen Oreo ball, to allow for easier dipping method.

8. Dip the Oreo ball into the bark, covering all areas of the ball. Place the truffle back onto the wax-covered cookie sheet. OR, for a decorative drizzle appearance like the picture above, use a spoon to drizzle the melted bark over the Oreo ball.

9. Refrigerate all Oreo truffles until coating is firm and cool (I usually refrigerate mine for a minimum of 3 hours).

10. Eat and become addicted!

my obsession

Hello! I'm Jessica. I live in South Carolina with my lovely husband, in our lovely home, in a lovely neighborhood. I enjoy researching new recipes, home decor, and anything paper. I love anything elegant and classy, yet simple. Welcome!

I love paper products and any food that tastes {and looks} good! I became enthralled with the two when planning my own wedding in 2009. After days, weeks, and months of scouring the Internet and feeling the need to look at every cake, flower, color, and paper product on the planet, I discovered my little obsession. So, I decided to devote the little piece of the World Wide Web to my love of paper + food.
