Welcome to Day #2 of 
Eye Candy Event Details's BIRTHDAY WEEK!
Today is the 1st person in my series of GUEST BLOGGERS & I am super excited to introduce you to her because she is such a great person . . . great friend & knows all the "in's & out's on one of my favorite subjects . . . PACKAGING & PAPER!
She LOVES creating new designs out of paper & everything she makes is so
ADORABLE! I think you are gonna LOVE her!
SO let's get to her . . . everyone meet Pam, founder & paper expert from
PARTY STARTERS!
Hello! I am so glad you could all join me today and help celebrate 
Eye Candy Event Details' 1st anniversary!! Laura is such a doll and I was thrilled when she asked if I would be a guest blogger today. 


The topic for today's post..."Trending Patterns". As I am sure most of you will agree that Chevron is THE hot pattern right now. Chevron seems to be everywhere from desserts to fashion to household items. According to Wikipedia, the Chevron symbol, which is an inverted V-shaped pattern occurs in early art including designs on pottery and rock carvings dating back to 1800 BC. This pattern has been around for a LONG time and I don't see it going away anytime soon.

Another pattern that has been making an appearance for Fall is Houndstooth. 
This duotone pattern has also been around for quite some time and according to Wikipedia orginated in woven cloth of the Scottish Lowlands. While the traditional houndstooth pattern tends to be in black and white, I have seen a lot more colors 
showing up in this pattern.


Which patterns have you seen trending and which ones are your most favorite? 

Here are some Chevron & Houndstooth patterned Mini Gable boxes I made for Fall 
of 2011. Use them for Halloween treats or Thanksgiving place cards with goodies inside, just about everyone is sure to love receiving one of these. 


I will give away a 12 qty variety package of my Fall Chevron Mini Gable boxes  
(as shown in the photo) 
as well as a 12 qty package of my new Fall Houndstooth Mini Gable Boxes  
(also shown in photo)
Together this prize package is a $ 44 value. 
(shipping in USA only please)

Thanks so much for stopping in and wishing Laura and Eye Candy Event Designs 
a Happy 1st Anniversary!!
