{Lovely Pins} Mint And Pink

Image Sources (clockwise from top left): 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

So many fun little Valentine projects have me obsessing over the color combination of Mint and Pink.  No matter what shades of either color you use, the combination is so fun and pretty.

Happy Friday everybody!  Have a fantastic weekend!

{Freebie} February Desktop Background

I don't know about you guys, but for me, having my computer desktop organized and pretty is just as
important to me as having my physical desk all organized and pretty.  I'm always searching for new and exciting desktop backgrounds, and lately I've been really liking the ones that allow you to organize your folders.  What I don't like though is that they usually have very specific titles that don't always exactly work for me, so I decided just to make my own.

Then I thought, why not share it with all my readers, which leads me to Serendipitous Things very first "freebie."  There are 8 different versions in 4 different colors...4 that just have the calendar and 4 that have folder organization built in.  All you have to do is click on the one you want, and it'll open it larger.  Then just right click and select "Save Image As."  Please let me know if you have any problems.  I'm super new to this, so it's very possible I'm doing something wrong.

Have a lovely day!

{Fashion Obsessed} Golden Globes 2013

I almost never actually get to sit down and watch an award show, but without fail I'm always online looking at all the beautiful ladies in their pretty dresses.  Oddly my top 3 favorite dresses from the Golden Globes this year are all sweatheart top and all various heart day colors...I think all these Valentines crafts I've been doing are starting to affect me in other ways.  My absolute favorite had to be Jessica Alba's Oscar de la Renta dress.  It was absolutely gorgeous.  I love that she left her hair down instead of opting for an up do.  

I hope you all had a fantastic night last night, whether you got to watch or not.  Have a great Monday!

{Fab Finds} Valentines

Every year I give myself about a day to reflect on the last holiday (New Year's Eve) before I'm onto the next one.  This year was no exception.  Right on cue, January 2nd I immediately started working on some Valentine's Day crafts, and it has me all excited about pink and red and hearts.   I love picking out Valentines for all of my loved ones, so I thought I would share some of the fun one's I've stumbled upon this year.  

1: Polka Cupid by Mr Boddington's Studio // 2: You're The Bee's Knees by Rifle Paper Co  
3: Underwear Bear from Kate's Paperie // 4: Happy Valentine's Day Card by Quill & Fox

I also found some cute ones for the kiddos that I just have to share.  

1: You're A Blast by Dish & Spoon for Minted // 2: You're A Peach by Chryssi Tsoupanarias for Minted
3: Owls Valentine Kit from Paper Source // 4: Guitar Valentine Kit from Paper Source

In addition to some pretty adorable valentines, I'm also in the process of making some lovely card cases for a few of my friends.  I can't wait to share them with you when I'm finished.

{Random Things} Resolutions

It's all you see this time of year...resolution after resolution.  If you've been on Facebook or Pinterest in the last 24 hours you know what I'm talking about.  I personally have never been one to make resolutions for the new year.  It's not that I think there is anything wrong with it.  It's just that I've always thought that it's just an arbitrary date, and that you should be setting "resolutions" for yourself all throughout the year.  This year however, I've been excited to start a new year.  It really feels like a fresh start and for whatever reason I feel inspired to set some goals for myself this year.  Here they are.

Be a better blogger: This little blog of mine doesn't get nearly the amount of readers as some other blogs out there, but I love it anyway.  I truly appreciate all of my regular readers and hope that I can inspiring you all in some way this year.

Improve overall heath: Now this isn't the usual weight loss resolution.  I don't have some big goal to loose x amount of pounds.  I just want to get healthier in better, get more exercise, etc.  If I end up loosing weight, awesome.  

Career...enough said: Like a lot of people, I'm still struggling to figure out what I want to do when I grow up.  It's a strange feeling because I feel so "together" with most aspects of my life.  I get overwhelmed by all the things I think I would like to do, knowing that I can't do it all.  

Stay organized: Staying organized keeps me sane.  Lately everything has been so chaotic that I've let things slide a bit, and it's been driving me crazy.  

Do more creative exploring: The creative process was very instrumental in my happiness last year.  This year I would like to delve into new creative things even further.

Be the best person I can be: Treat others with kindness, be a good wife, sister, daughter, and friend.

I hope that you all had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  I look forward to seeing what 2013 has in store for us all!
