Who is the Blogger behind 3D-Memoirs?

The Face Behind the Blogging Mask

I am assuming that most of you have not read the ABOUT ME section of the blog, so I thought I’d spend a little time today sharing a little bit about ME.

Today I am going to be completely transparent with you and let you in on a little secret – so let’s get down to details.

Who Am I?

My name is Elvira DeCuir and I live in Orange County, CA (USA). I am a 33 year old wife to a wonderful husband and mom to a handsome and busy 2 year old son. My hubby and I will be celebrating 5 years of marriage in August and looking to hopefully celebrate somewhere tropical as we are thinking that it may be a good time after summer to start on baby #2, so an anniversary in paradise would be perfect! We are considering the Caribbean, Hawaii (our honeymoon destination) or Bora Bora – trying to figure out which one will be most cost effective – if you have any ideas or suggestions or even hookups, please do share! I am looking for white sandy beaches, sunshine, beautiful blue water, and a tropical cocktail – this to me embodies relaxation, paradise, and romance.

As you know I LOVE DIY projects, event decor, arts & crafts, party planning and weddings. Besides these things I also love karaoke, dancing, singing, writing poetry, reading (mainly murder mystery novels – I think I am a detective), pictures, movies, scrapbooking, wine tasting, cooking, traveling, exploring nature, outdoor activities (camping, swimming, fishing, hiking, boating, sports, etc), adventures, spending time with friends and family, shopping, and saving money! I love to wear jeans and cute flip flops, have  an addiction to buying shoes, love to wear fuchsia nail polish on my toes, and love to dress up my eyes when I go out. I am a sucker for milk and white chocolate candy (especially Sees Candy), chocolate chip cookies, pizza, burgers, soft warm bread and blueberry muffins, and potatoes (any way I can get them – fried, baked, mashed, french fries, tater tots, hash browns, etc). I am an Aquarius (on the cusp), a compulsive buyer, type A personality, creative, strong-willed, a little bit of a control freak, and love to laugh! I am detailed-oriented, analytical, and a great debater – my hubby always tells me I should have been a lawyer. I am inquisitive and like to know the why behind why. I am very sentimental so it is hard for me to let go of things and I am a hopeless romantic at heart. I am 6ft 1.5in and I wear heels – I am used to being stared at and wished I could have been a model in my youth. (My hubby is 6ft 4in and our son is 39 in, in the 95 percentile for height – I am sure he will be tall. :)) I could go on and on about myself, my likes and dislikes, or quirky behaviors but I won’t bore you with the details, however if you have any questions feel free to ask!

Snapshot of My Background

I have a large immediate family with 5 siblings, 10 nieces & nephews, and 5 great nieces & nephews – so I love holidays and the chaos, laughs, and fun that comes with large family get-to-gethers. I played basketball in H.S. but was also a bit of a cool nerd, as I like to say, in high school and graduated Valedictorian with a 4.2 GPA. I graduated Cum Laude from California State University, Long Beach with a B.S. in Marketing & Management with a minor in Communication Studies, plus many academic accolades, and recognition and awards for leadership and my collegiate involvement. I spent 5 years in the mortgage financing industry, working for major banks – so I have a strong background in B2B sales.

 

My Workload

Fast forward to present day and my little secret – besides writing for this blog and doing wedding/event planning, I actually have a full-time job with a large telecommunications company, supporting our wireless government customers across the US. I love my job because its put a roof over our heads, provides health benefits, and the flexibility to work remotely (stay-at-home mom + working mom = double workload), plus I enjoy what I do. Whew! So now you know, that I am an extremely busy lady – work, blog & social media, wedding/event planning, mom, wife, household responsibilities (cooking, cleaning, paying the bills, etc) – but somehow I’ve managed to keep my sanity and my workload. I am a 1 woman team with no hired help or the ability to spend all day working on posts and new content, so please bear with me if I miss a day or two or I am slower in implementing new things to the blog. I am sure many of you can relate to being busy and managing many things at once and as a mom and wife, sometimes I struggle with prioritizing everything, especially balancing career, what I love, and my family. I can’t take credit for mastering it but I think I’ve done a great job thus far. How does that saying go, “You do what you have to do, so you can do what you want to do”.

Did Someone Say Summer Vacation?

I absolutely LOVE the blog and hearing from all of my lovely readers, but in case you didnt know, it is very time-consuming. On top of that, I recently finished a wedding, just last weekend, that I had been working on for the past year and it was absolutely beautiful –  I can’t wait until I get my hands on the lovely pictures so that I can share with you guys. With everything that has been going on, plus our recent move, I am feeling a little burned out and have decided to take a little vacation this summer to re-energize. You may be wondering what this means for 3D-Memoirs?

  • Well, I’ll be taking a couple weeks off from blogging to spend some quality time with my son and hubby.
  • Then I’ll be working on some tablescape and DIY photoshoots that I can share with you guys on the blog – I have some wonderful ideas and will need to spend some time putting it all together.
  • Plan on seeing a fun fundraising post this summer to help Operation Shower collect some much needed supplies for their military baby showers this year – super excited about this plus you will have the chance to win some amazing goodies from some awesome vendors for participating!
  • Also, I am excited to share that I am working on adding a shop to the blog – more details to come soon, but know that it is going to be wonderful!
  • With all these exciting happenings + vacation here and there this summer, you’ll probably see less posts on Tuesday (Inspiration Board Tuesday), Thursday (Etsy Thursday), & Friday (DIY Fridays) over the next couple months, but I’ll definitely keep you posted and make sure I announce new posts on the blog!
  • In the meantime, I want to invite you to look around the blog because I am sure that there are LOTS of posts that you may have missed. I recommend browsing each of the headings above (Etsy Thursdays, DIY, Inspiration Boards, Wedding Inspiration, My DIY Decor Portfolio, etc) or if you have something particular in mind – put it in the search box (top right hand side).
  • Also, please make sure you are following me on Facebookwww.facebook.com/3dmemoirs , Twitterwww.twitter.com/3dmemoirs, and Pinterestwww.pinterest.com/3dmemoirs, so that you don’t miss any of the goodies I share. It would also be a great idea for you to peruse my boards on Pinterest for ideas and inspiration – I’ve got tons of lovely things on my boards!

So, please note that this by no means is a goodbye, just a partial summer vacation break where I will be working on some awesome things for you and the blog, as well as you can expect to still see some of the wonderful content that you love so much, it just may not be weekly until closer to the end of summer, but please stay tuned!

Memorial Day

I would like to wish you all a wonderful 3 day weekend! I would also like to say a big THANK YOU to all military men and woman that have given or risked their lives for our country, our beliefs, and our freedom – it is your ultimate sacrifice that has granted me the liberties that I have today. Thank you to not only those that have given their lives, but also veterans, active military men and woman and their families – you deserve recognition year-round and I want you to know that I appreciate everything that you do and thank you for your courage, strength, dedication, and service!

Garden Party Kid’s Birthday

Garden Party Birthday for Kid’s

Planning a kid’s birthday party? Let them have fun in the dirt while teaching them about plants and flowers – let them connect with their “green thumb”. Can you tell that I enjoy and appreciate Spring and all that it has to offer? I think that this is a very creative and fun birthday party theme. For fun, why not let the kid’s plant seeds or a potted plant in your yard; show them some of the good and bad garden bugs, pass out planting pot favors filled with a shovel, seeds, gardening gloves, and other goodies; show them various flowers or fruits and vegetables in your garden – explaining the process from seed to growth and how to care for them; let them paint flowering pots for fun; and develop a light menu full of healthy and creative bites like the samples you see below!

Etsy Thursday: Mint, Peach & Coral Wedding

Mint, Peach & Coral Wedding Inspiration

Spring offers some amazing color palettes for a wedding. This week’s Etsy wedding finds are for a lovely mint, peach and coral color palette. You will see below that there are many ways to incorporate these 3 colors together. Mint and peach or mint and coral look AMAZING together – I just love it! You will find that peach and coral are in the same color family and mint and aqua blue can look very similar too. You could technically have a mint, aqua blue, coral, and peach color palette which would be very complimentary or do a combination of any 2 of the colors for a beautiful color palette. Not only do these colors look amazing together but you can also combine them with yellow, ivory, white, tan, navy blue, gray, and add gold accents.

Inspiration Board: Kids Paint Party

Kid’s Paint Birthday Party

This week’s Inspiration Board is for a Kid’s Paint Birthday Party! How much fun would it be to let kids do what they love (get dirty :)) AND make something awesome to take home. I love the vibrant colors for this theme and the creative options with the decor!  You can get personalized aprons for the kids, let them paint something or do a fun paint project, and sent them home with a paint pail full of goodies. Not to mention all the tasty and colorful food and dessert options that will fit perfectly with the theme. Take a peek at the paint party inspiration board below to get your creative juices going!

DIY Friday: Spring Dinner Party

DIY Spring Soiree – Dinner Party

Want to have a Spring soiree with a few of your close friends perhaps in the comfort of your home or undeneath the beautiful stars? Today I am sharing a few DIY projects and tips for an intimate springtime evening dinner party! For this post I am going for grown and sexy, simple yet elegant!

1. Dinner Guestlist

Decide on your guest count and put together your invitee list.

2.DIY Invitations

Decide on the dinner party details – location, date, time, and theme, if any. Then find a creative way to share the deets about your event – here are a few examples:

Be “old-fashioned” and personally handwrite invitations to each of your guests on lovely paper like this from the Paper Source:

4661007710

 

Or you can use some creative fonts that fit your theme and simply print your invitation on lovely paper!

Another inexpesive option that I am a HUGE fan of is buy a lovely personalized printable DIY invitation (jpg) from an Etsy vendor like this one from Trinity St. Studio:

invitation

3. DIY Decor

Decide on the ambiance and your decor for your dinner party. (In the DIY examples below I am going for a romantic spring-like ambiance.) Take a look at these inexpensive DIY projects for decor:

Save your wine or beer bottles and buy candlesticks from the Dollar Tree. DIY instructions from Happy Mundane here:

Candlelight centerpiece

DIY Flowers & Candlelights Centerpiece : DIY Instructions from My New Place here:

flower-centerpieces

If you wanted to add a little bit of color, then try something like this wear you either buy color vases or paint your own and add flowers and succulents as shared on Little Miss Momma:

colored vases

For decor you can buy elegant premium plastic dinner ware products from Party City or from the Dollar Tree:

dinner platesdinner plates

Buy affordable beautiful table covers from Party City or elegant linens from Linen Tablecloth! Buy or make your own table runners to add some pizzaz or use your favorite scrapbooking paper as a place mat for each dinner set.

 

4. Personalized Favors

Do something simple or even something grand, this isnt required but a special touch. You can offer something edible or useable that you make. Here is a lovely creative idea I found on HGTV – infused sugars (you can find these containers at Michaels and choose to personalize them with your guests name):

Original_Eden-Passante-Sugar-and-Charm-infused-sugar-lime-lavender-lemon-party-favors-beauty-2_s4x3_lg

 

Or how about a beautiful personalized “green” gift like this one featured on Design Sponge:

terrarium1

 

 

5. DIY Food and Drinks

Food – go for a food bar like taco bar, sandwhich bar, burger bar, baked potato bar, chili bar, grilled cheese bar, etc. You just want to pick something that is cost effective for the quantity of guests but is also fulfilling and offers a lot variety – this is the fun part for your guests, to actually pick their toppings! Here is an example of a baked potato bar shared on Lucy Dylan Weddings:

potato bar

Dessert – since you are going with the food bar, you can also add a dessert bar with a myriad of desserts or focused on one particular item – cheesecake bar, ice cream bar, fruit bar, fondue bar, cookies bar, cupcake bar, etc. If you want to keep the dessert simple – make your favorite dessert – cake, cookies, pie, brownies, etc or if you aren’t a great chef opt for some awesome bakery or store bought desserts and put them on lovely plates for your guests to choose!

Drinks – if you are in the mood for libations, share your favorite wine, beer, or make a creative signature drink for your guests! Or you can go bar crazy and go with a drink bar – i.e. a Margarita, Mimosa, or Mojito bar.  If you and your guests do not drink, make a yummy and refreshing drink to share, such as this Pomegranate Spritzer shared on White on Rice Couple:

drink

*For more food and drink ideas and recipes, you will definitely want to check out my Food & Libation Pinterest board of over 500 delectable pins!*

I hope you found amazing inspiration and ideas in today’s dinner party Spring soiree post, enjoying this week’s DIY Friday! As always, if you LOVE this post – please LIKE IT, TWEET IT, PIN IT, and SHARE IT! If you have any ideas for a future post, I’d love to hear from you!

*Please note: Due to my current hectic schedule, I will be doing DIY Friday posts every other Friday until things settle down a bit for me. For now you can still expect Inspiration Board Tuesdays & Etsy Thursdays every week!*

Etsy Thursday: St. Patrick’s Day Wedding

St. Patricks Day Wedding Inspiration

Kiss me I’m Irish and Happy early St. Patrick’s Day! Like everyone else I have always remembered this holiday for green, clovers, luck, and pinches when I forgot to wear green. By the way, are you wearing green today? If not – virtual pinch for you! I can identify with St. Patrick’s Day because of it’s religious sentiments and culture – my great-grandmother was Irish. As you may know by now I like to provide creative Etsy wedding inspiration for creative themes and holidays, so this week’s Etsy wedding collection is all about GREEN for St. Patty’s Day!

Etsy Thursday: Polka Dot Wedding

Polka Dot Wedding Inspiration

 

Polka Dots are just so fun and super cute! I thought I would take this popular pattern and put together a beautiful post of all my amazing polka dot Etsy wedding finds! For this particular post I decided to use the traditional Black & White Polka dots (with a little bit of gold and mustard accents) and transition to Black & Ivory Polka Dots by the end of the post. If you are interested in a polka dot themed wedding, there are so many color options available, you don’t have to just go with the traditional black and white. Polka dots can also be tastefully and artfully combined with other patterns like stripes & chevron or simply add an accent color like the gold, mustard, and blue below. You can also reverse the polka dots – i.e. black dots and white background or white dots and black background – and use these together! As you will see below, polka dots are very versatile, fun, and can be very elegant!

Etsy Thursday: Bicycle Themed Wedding

Bicycle Themed Wedding Inspiration

I can’t begin to tell you how many amazingly creative and cute bicycle-themed wedding invitations I found on Etsy. So many that I had to cut myself off so that this post is 50 photos long and I decided that I will have to do a second post on bicycle-themed wedding inspiration. I love the vintage feel of the bicycle theme, the colors, and the font. I have put together a unique collection of Etsy wedding finds below that should provide inspiration for anyone considering a bicycle theme – you can incorporate a rustic, vintage-style, or modern bicycle theme.
