DIY with LMP: Easy Selfie Backdrop

step7-luke

Here at LMP, we’re always looking for a good spot to take a quick picture. Whether some new confetti arrived or we just bought the cutest cupcake, we absolutely love to document our best party moments. Jazz up a wall of your own with this easy DIY backdrop for your next party, and we promise it will end up all over Instagram.

You’ll only need a few supplies:
-cute paper (we love a little glitter!)
-string or cord (coordinate the color to your paper)
-tape

step1

Step 1: Cut your paper into strips, about 2″ wide.

step2

Step 2: Cut the strips into small triangles.

step3

Step 3: Cut the string into 10 pieces that span the height of a door frame. Find a plain wall close to a window (for the best natural light!) and tape each string evenly across the width.

step5

Step 4: Tape the triangles to the string, spaced out enough so that no piece is right next to each other on neighboring strings. Also make a decision about your color placement. We liked our colors to be well dispersed.

step4

Step 5: Keep taping those triangles up until they run out! Fill each string with about 8-10 triangles to leave a nice amount of negative space.

step6

Step 6: Take a selfie and test it out! We know it will be super cute.

That’s it! To see it in use on the regular, you can follow Seri on Snapchat; she loves to use the selfie backdrop! Best part is, it will last as long as that tape can stick. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

xx, Maggie

Mandy Loves Minted!

Hi again! It’s me, Mandy from Mandy’s Meals and More. I’ve been in hiding for a couple months but I’ve emerged.

IMG_0002

Not sure if you are aware but in Canada we are lucky enough to have a year of maternity leave. Sadly that time is coming to an end for me.

Dylan my daughter is headed to day care in August so when I got the email informing me that Minted is now doing gorgeous name labels for clothes, lunch boxes, etc.. I was beyond stoked!

IMG_0003

As with all categories on minted, there are millions of options, sizes, colors and shapes. And the quality is unreal.

I am seriously planning on sticking these things on everything!

As sad as I am for this amazing year to ‎come to a close, I am so grateful to spend each day watching Dylan grow into the amazing tiny human she has become.

xx, Mandy

LMP Welcomes Baby D

The LMP team has gained their newest member, Miss Dylan Ava Revzen-Dick!

After 40 weeks in her mommy’s belly, two days of contractions and twelve hours of labor Dylan finally greeted her family on August 27th at 4:14pm.

thumb_IMG_0003_1024

With a year of planning and pinspiration Dylan’s nursery was ready to roll! We knew we were having a girl but still wanted to stick to neutral tones. I’ve never been super girly so I stuck with easy non-gendered prints and colors.

For the artwork, we framed minted fabric in an ikea frame. Stunning right? You can find these and hundreds more here.

The beautiful floral crown was made by the talented Lady Hayes. Probably the girliest thing I own for Dylan but one of my absolute favorite gifts received.

Life has certainly changed since our little bundle has arrived. I can truly say I understand a love like no other. Dylan has absolutely rocked our world, but made it a far better place to be.

Project Playdate: Bookworms

BTS8
So the kids were having a playdate on a Sunday and wanted to do something a little different before hitting the pool. So we thought it would be nice to visit the library for some books…
BTS5
We got to the library and it was closed. Ok woops! Should have checked that. So we window shopped our way over to the cutest little book store to browse through a few books instead.
BTS 1
These kids have such a wonderful love for books and reading. It is a quality a mother dreams of for her children.
BTS14
We have a few people to thank for this (not including myself because I find it hard to find the time to read…) so I will give the credit where the credit is due here.
BTS12
BTS13
BTS3
For starters, our nanny Kelsey. Kelsey was apart of our family during the kids earliest years and made it part of the daily routine to read to them. The library was a weekly activity and I love how the kids took responsibility over returning them on time – always asking – when are our books due?!
BTS9
The other person in the kids lives who spend countless hours reading with them…their teachers of course. I have the utmost respect for teachers. They are a special type of person who have the most powerful influence over our children today.
BTS10
The kids each left with a book and we headed back to Mazzy and Harlow’s place. And this is there the fun really began…BTS21
BTS17
When the kids got back to Mazzy & Harlow’s house they ran away from us immediately to run wild and then sit down to read their books in private…hidden under the treehouse. How precious?!
BTS16
BTS20
BTS15
Happy reading friends!

Studdly Designs, Our New Favorite Jewelry

studdyly 15

Have you noticed how awesome all of the graphics on the website and inserts for Little Miss Party in a Box have been? For the past few months, we have been lucky enough to have the help of the lovely Maggie Antalek, who just recently graduated from Northeastern University with a BFA in Graphic Design. In addition to being an incredibly talented graphic designer, at just 22 years old, Maggie is also the founder and designer of Studdly Designs, a Boston-based jewelry company that she started back in April of 2013.

hiresstuddly1

Maggie started out making jewelry while studying abroad in Florence, Italy in the spring of 2012.  The business has since evolved to include not only bracelets, but necklaces and earrings. Maggie uses genuine leather and certified gemstones for all of her bracelets and necklaces, and every piece is hand made.

The amount of time and attention to detail that goes into each bracelet is truly impressive.  She will even create custom pieces for you! She recently created a custom cuff for our friend Ilana of Mommy Shorts, which she posted to her @pinkinnyc Instagram account!  How gorgeous is this bracelet?!

I know Maggie from Northeastern, and I have been been obsessed with her jewelry from the start.  My Instagram feed is peppered with pics of me sporting my Studdly’s, and I wear something that Maggie has made almost every day.  Here are a few examples:

I take them everywhere with me, London and Bonnaroo included:

Here’s a shot of me wearing my favorite Studdly bracelet at a recent LMP party, taken by Raquel Langworthy:

I happen to have two more bracelets coming my way right now, and I am a little giddy about it.

If you don’t already, you should absolutely follow Studdly’s Instagram feed for gorgeous pictures of Maggie’s work.  Take a gander at her shop on Etsy to see what she has available right now. You can also email Maggie at studdlybracelets@gmail.com if you’d like to place a custom order!
