So it looks like I'll be needing a new camera! (Plus a few updates...)

And until then I will do the best I can to try to post pictures whenever I can. For example, these:

Posted by blogger Adrienne of She's a former client of mine who has moved on to event planning, and if her own wedding is even the smallest indication, I predict she will be a smashing success! (The first photo is from her own wedding, the others from events she has planned...)

**Taupe ink, and either navy ink or navy envelopes are definitely the color trends for this season! I've seen more of both colors in the last month than I can ever remember seeing before. I've yet to do taupe ink ON a navy envelope - but I bet it would be gorgeous!
**A few quick notes - I will be away for the weekend of July 10, 11, 12 and also for the week of August 16-22. If you'll be needing placecards around that time I am sure I will contact you to make sure we can work your schedule around those dates. Also, the next week I currently have available for booking envelopes is September 27 - October 3, and the wait list for 2010 is already underway. Happy planning!

Assorted pictures, and random thoughts. (And more invitations for Barack Obama!)

Hello! It's been another busy week, but with the school year finally drawing to a close I will not be running back and forth to help out at all of the end of year activities, and I might catch a bit of a break! In the last post I commented on what my 'desk' (AKA my dining room table) might look like while buried in envelopes:

There are two 'cleaned up' versions (and by that I mean there are no boxes hanging off the end waiting to be picked up or shipped across the country....). I just finished the blue set for Edwina, and as always I do love the light ink on dark paper. Here is a close up sample (hello Mr. President!) that highlights the fine flourished script, alternate caps. (Also note my great grandmothers beautiful china!!)

And while I was posting photos, I thought I would include two placecard samples I made recently. The first is just such a GORGEOUS card! The second shows the dark green ink from the invitation in two different lettering styles.

Have a great week, and happy planning!

Busy, busy week!

So sorry for the lack of new pictures this week, but I have just been writing non stop! Where in a 'normal' week I might do 400-500 envelopes plus placecards, this week I have done over a thousand (plus placecards). Whew! I should have taken pictures of the envelopes strewn all over my dining room as they dried - now that would have been a sight!

Just a reminder to all of the brides whose weddings have already taken place - if your photographers have captured any great shots of placecards, signs, envelopes, or any other work I've done for you, please forward them along and I'll add them to the blog. Oh, and congratulations! :0)

Nicole's envelopes

For Nicole we used the fine flourished script - alternate caps. (What a mouthful! I've been meaning to change that name to something simpler for quite a while. Any suggestions??) It's probably the most popular style I use, and for Nicole we matched the taupe ink on her return address.
