We are MOVING!

Last but not least, just a heads up that we will be moving to a new house during the weekend of October 15-16. I am already living in a land of boxes, but in the midst of moving I might be difficult to reach for a few days. I am hoping to be able to keep the same email address and phone number (I am only moving a few blocks away), but the mailing address will certainly change. I will do a mass email to all of my current clients with all of the changes as soon as we are in and settled. If the email address or phone number does happen to change I will post that here once I know. And if you are interested in booking for a spring wedding, NOW is the time to do it, to ensure that you get the week that you want. :0)

A few more placecard ideas, and envelopes for a rehearsal dinner done in the uneven lettering. I always like that one - it's fun to do, and its a nice option when you don't need it to be too formal...

Seating Chart

I just adore the color combination here. I don't normally get to buy the materials for a chart - I like to let the bride do that. But this time, since Carrie was too far away to drive to me twice I went to AC Moore to pick up the materials, with her ideas on colors. The flowers were a single silk hydrangea blossom that I took apart and arranged and hot glued, and the rhinestone flourish is a sticker that is a single piece! Couldn't be easier and looked just gorgeous when done.


This is just a sampling of the super creative placecards I have seen over the past few months. Seriously - people ask me all the time what is 'common' to do for placecards, but I can't even answer that question! There seems to be no common placecard - you are limited only by your imagination!

So many pictures to post!

So this summer, after 2 1/2 years on the market we finally sold our little house and are moving on to bigger and better things. In the rush of 'email this QUICKLY' and 'sign this paper and get it back to me NOW' and 'do we have enough boxes' and every other ridiculous thing that comes up with selling a house and moving there just hasn't been time to get the photos up here. I've been taking them though - so here's just a sampling...

The first photo is one of my favorite things that I have ever worked on. Katie provided all of the information and a general sketch needed for the map, and then she took my image and had it letterpressed to match her invitation suite (for which I also provided piece work that she had letterpressed). The final image is one of the signs I did - there were many - that I can't wait to see the photos of as they were set up at the actual event.

Another blog mention!!

Wow, all these blog mentions and the fame will go to my head! ;0)

So much fun working on these envelopes - I'll say it again - I LOVE white ink on dark paper. Always, always so pretty. These were for 'Miss Candy Apple' of Weddingbee - thanks again for sharing this 'Miss Candy Apple'!!

Wonderful blog mention

Years ago now (has it really been that long??) Adrienne was a bride of mine having her invitations addressed. Now she is a full on fancy schmancy event planner: . Here is a job I worked on for Heidi, a client of hers, and both the envelopes (which are not pictured on the link, but you can scroll down and find) as well as the placecards and the table cards were just SO COOL! I loved working on them, and I loved being included in the blog post - such an honor to be a part of such a very beautiful wedding!

Silver and white signage

Love the white lettering on shiny silver paper - very elegant. The top photo was actually their vows, written on 5x7 paper on the diagonal. A challenge to fit it all, but very cool in the end.

Apple green and white! (oh, and purple!)

Top to bottom - baby shower invites for my sister in green ink, wispy lettering (invites from Vista Print - LOVE them!) , autumn lettering and white ink on beautiful green paper. This was a striking combo in person! Next a flourish mash up on purple envelopes, and more apple green ink, wispy lettering...

Come on blogger - let me post pictures!!

Finally! Top to bottom - wispy lettering in an apple green ink (hard to tell from the lighting, and perched in my Easter flowers), really cool seating chart done in purple ink, autumn lettering with rhinestone embellishments,
navy placecards (that I forgot to rotate) in an autumn mash up (love these!), flourish on navy in white ink (navy/white is popular this season!), and some insert cards in an autumn mash up that were very neat looking.

So many new pictures!

Finally got the pictures off of my camera and onto the computer. As my kids get bigger and involved in more activities I've had less time to post pretty pictures, but I am still as busy as ever! Without much commentary, here is just a bit of what I've been working on... Top to bottom they are wispy, flourish, wispy, swirl, and an older style wchi I believe I called non-italic.

**I have lots more pictures, but blogger is giving me a hard time starting a new post and they limits photos to 5. I may have to try again later!

A few more photos since blogger limits it to 5

Worst blogger ever!

Okay - I know - I have taken forever to update! My own sister got married in November, and then we got a new puppy, and the holidays, and the ice.... you get the idea! Here is just a sample of what I've been working on the past few months...
