Blume allows you to blend meaningful messages with artisan jewellery. Each collection of jewellery takes inspiration from what encourages all of us. You can find a piece that brings to mind where you've been and where your going. Or simply customize your own to add a personalized touch.

Deep within us all, lies a brilliant light

Happiness is when what you think, 
what you say, and what you do
are in harmony.

As in nature, as in art, so in grace:
it is rough treatment that gives souls, 
as well as stones, their luster.

Nature does not hurry, 
yet everything is accomplished.

Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path
and leave a trail.

Life is far too important a thing 
ever to talk seriously about.

Better than a thousand hollow word,

Now put the foundations under them.

Our Brand New Catalogue Is Now Released!!!

uppercase living ® photo
Last month, at our annual convention held at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas, Uppercase Living finally revealed the brand new vinyl catalogue that we've all been waiting for. It is now available for you to page through on my website. There is just too much good stuff for me to detail individually here, but here are some of the highlights to wet your appetite.

New Colour: This year's new colour is mustard seed. It's a deep and rich yellow.

New Expressions: The new expressions this year have so much depth  and meaning that it draws you into every page. So many beautiful sentiments that are sweet, fun, serious and playful; always with the most important undertone being home, family and the activities that bond families together.

New Grande Format Design:  Among these popular versatile designs, this year UL has added headboards! Recently, many designers/decorators have been replacing those heavy, bold, and ornate headboards with their own custom headboard design. In most instances it is to coordinate the bed with the room; to create a sophisticated and simple atmosphere as well as to create more space within a room. Now we have the option of applying a headboard (two headboard designs are available) to our walls in any of the 50 colours that we offer. It is absolutely stunning I believe.

New Fonts: The choices in creating your own vinyl lettering designs are greater than ever with the addition of 12 new fun, contemporary, classy, versatile, and beautiful fonts.

By RaeAnn Johnson Collins, UL Demonstrator 
New Erasables: I absolutely love the UL Chalk and Dry Erase Walls. The versatility on how they can be used is just crazy and they are just so much fun! The new Value Pack (chalk wall) is perfect for organizing space from a pantry to a craft/toy room to your garage...and more! And that is not all...Dry erase walls are now offered in  four additional colours; Robins Egg, Fresh Linen, Green Tea, and Cotton Candy. I can't wait to post some pics of how this product can be a great addition to your home for the upcoming school year.

Giving Back: In my opinion the most exciting addition to the new catalogue is the 'Create Hope'. Create Hope, is an initiative to help make a difference in communities around the world. Uppercase Living plans to realize this mission through their partnership with Habitat for Humanity to assist them in their efforts to provide affordable housing to families in need.

These are just a few of the newest additions to our 2011-2012 catalogue. Please take a look and tell me what you LOVE. I hope to share many ideas and pics of how UL can add inspiration to your home.

DIY Wreaths

I must say that I am very happy with my 'purple n silver' wreath. I did get quite a few compliments. With that said I did attempt to make two more. One for a neighbor and another for my mother. Why not?...the spirit of giving was in the air. 

Holiday 2010 is over and I must say it was a blast. The whole experience of holiday decorating is definitely gratifying on all levels. I had so much fun making my own holiday wreaths, and I can't wait for what 2011 has in store.

Wishing you all a Happy and Successful New year!

Its All About Purple n Silver

I am totally in love with this ornament ball wreath. Debbie Travis has one like this at Canadian Tire this year for Christmas. Gorgeous!!!. But being somewhat of scrooge this year; not interested in spending $29.99 so I decided I will try my hand and get creative - I'm gonna make my own wreath! This should be fun!

Anyhow, made my way to Michaels and purchased (a total of $15) all the items I need to complete my 'comprised' wreath. I decided to use the traditional wreath, but add the ornament balls as accents.

Using ornament hire hooks I attached the ornament balls to the wreath and I must say that took sometime. Especially, when trying to make a perfect circle. FYI - this takes patience if you are a perfectionist like moi!

Well, after two days I completed my purple n silver wreath. Using silver flower picks to add drama and character. I plan on making a few more before the holiday season is over. Hopefully, I can call myself an wreath expert! Ok, lets not get carried away, LOL

Would love to get your feedback as well as hearing about your creative wreath ideas.
