October 1st marked the 3-year anniversary of Design by Occasions’ blog; ‘The Noted’. I started on October 1, 2013 – obsessed with pretty things, beautiful tablescapes, stunning interiors & decor, trending fashion, and delicious food & beverage recipes. I created a lifestyle blog as a destination for ideas and inspiration and this year I wanted to incorporate even more of my own content and I hope to increase that just a bit more. There are days when I find myself so inspired, that I’ve filled my notebooks with ideas and projects – wishing I could create unique content each and everyday but I have to balance with designing new Design by Occasion greeting cards and fulfilling orders. I do what I can and love what I do and appreciate those of you who visit the blog, whether it’s all the time or once in awhile. It’s a wonderful compliment for me to especially know that you visit from the vast and beautiful blogs out there!
So what’s in store for the blog in the coming months? Well, I will continue to explore the topics I love and dedicate the blog to home decor, styling with a focus on entertaining. Additionally, I will be giving my site a small face lift. Some updates will occur on the backend (a few tech updates) – mostly subtle changes to improve the site navigation.
Now for the exciting part!! In honor of my 3-year blogiversary, I’m celebrating with a GIVEAWAY and today’s the day where you can enter to win my curated gift box!

For my birthday, one of the gifts my sister had gifted me with was this vibrant inspirational book called ‘Fight On‘. I for one enjoy reading inspirational quotes for the motivation and positive thoughts but they can also cheer me up. Since I’ve been dealing with managing my cancer care for the past six years, I recently had to start a new treatment because the other stopped working…it can be a downer when that happens. I enjoyed going through the pages of the book and reading each one and as you read one message, you flip to the next page and are reminded and encouraged to “fight on”.
I thought I would share with you a few motivational pages, as these encouraging words can relate to anyone in any situation a person finds themselves in…it’s a wonderful daily reminder for yourself or someone else.

‘Butterfly Release’: whimsical multi-colored butterflies flying out of an open gift box.
This greeting card can have a few different sentiments – Get Well, Thinking of You, or Just Because. This handcrafted card comes with a coordinating hand-lined envelope. The inside of the card is left blank for your own personal message.
‘Gold Bird & Flower Petal’: gold-foiled 3-D overlays of a bird and flower petal.
With this design, I went with a modern approach by using a gold-foiled cardstock. I adorned the bird and the center of the flower petal with clear Swarovski Crystals that adds a bit of chic!
