Happy Friday everyone! Our little Alice celebrated her quarter birthday earlier this week. I can’t believe she’s already three months old! She’s smiling up a storm and generally the happiest and most chill baby we could have asked for – unless her gums (hello early teething!) or tummy are bothering her. And then she definitely lets you know that she’s not happy! We’ve had a few more of those nights than I would have liked this week, so I’m looking forward to a quiet weekend and a short week next week before we all head out for the holidays. But in the meantime…

…a few links for your weekend!
This week on Oh So Beautiful Paper:
No cocktail this week, sadly, due to a certain unusually fussy 3 month-old – but we hope to have a pre-holiday cocktail for you early next week! Have a wonderful weekend, and I’ll see you back here on Monday! xoxo
Can you believe Christmas is almost here? At the Antiquaria design studio, we’ve been busily crafting gifts for our loved ones and wrapping them with care. Emma made these adorable hand drawn gift tags for us to use this year and we thought it would be the perfect download to share with all of you! We wish you a holiday season full of love and cheer (and beautifully wrapped packages). Cheers! –Bailey and Emma of Antiquaria

I refuse to let go of some things; calculators are one of those things. I’ve used the app that comes standard on phones, but there’s something about the tactile act of pressing the keys that lets me get into a flow in a way I never could on a touchscreen. (I also can’t get over the accuracy issue. I always mess up on the phone!) After attending my first NSS a few years ago, it became obvious that with some work, it’s just better to have an actual calculator in hand. Luckily there are still plenty of great options out there for those of use who like to crunch those numbers the old school way. – Julie

With 2015 just a couple of weeks away (!!), I couldn’t resist sharing these sparkly gold New Year’s Eve wedding invitations from Courtney Callahan Paper. Courtney paired gold foil and calligraphy with clock and confetti-inspired details – the perfect mix for a New Year’s Eve wedding!
From Courtney: Since Lisa and Paul’s New Year’s Eve wedding will take place at Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, their wedding invitation had to be equally luxurious. Each piece of the invitation is printed on Crane’s Pearl White Lettra stock and features gold foil and custom calligraphy.
To tie in the “festive” part of their wedding, the inner envelope was lined in gold glitter and the entire suite was tied together with a gold glitter belly band and tag featuring the couple’s names, wedding date, and a clock at the stroke of midnight – which was also featured on a custom stamp. Guests also noted if they would be “ringing in the new year together” or “toasting from afar.”
