Loving the touch of sparkle that gold brings to your wedding decor? Me too! I've got several invitations available that use the gold foil with my hand drawn calligraphy style for your names.
Here is the latest design I've uploaded to my Etsy shop. This bride used hot pink and medium pinks as accent colors. Do you love?

Being busy is good when you are a one-woman entrepreneur in the invitation business. It means I get to meet more of you, celebrate with you and make your invitation wishes come true. It sometimes means I don't reach out as much though. All of my clients are wonderful, kind and creative people and you are all make my "work" a soul-satisfying joy. I wish you all a wonderful year and hope there are many more blessings that you will celebrate together.
With so much gratitude,

I know I've already shared this invitation with you but my client just sent me the photos of the invitation taken by Mint Photography Austin and I had to share again because they are so much prettier than mine! :o)
I've also added this invitation to my Etsy shop here.

This save the date for a country wedding has the most gorgeous illustration on it! The bride and I decided that the location of her wedding at her family farm was so unique and special to her family history, that it should be highlighted in the save the date. I contacted Christina Wald, who is a professional book illustrator and asked her to create something for Emily's save the date. Of course, she exceded our expectations with a stunning colorful and historically accurate painting. We are using the scanned artwork in the save the date (as you can see here) and also in the invitation. No doubt, we will not stop there and possibly use it on the sweet tags for the home made apple butter favors too. The best part? The bride is going to frame the painting and present it to her grandparents as a gift.

Are you a fan of Pinterest? One of my favorite and informationally packed podcasts and blogs is Oh So Pinteresting. Cynthia Sanchez has made a career out of helping people make more of their Pinterest accounts than just eye candy. I've used it successfully in my business for over 2 years now (such LONG time in Pinterest years, right?) and wrote about it in this guest post on her blog.
Here is a link to my Pinterest boards created to enhance my clients' event with much more than the invitations. I pin decor ideas, links to tutorials and resources for products that make the planning and decorating of the event easy-peasy.

Jenna Blazevich does it again: incredible hand lettered typography AND a sweet gift. I received this in the mail this week and had to share. It makes me remember how nice it is to receive sweet little notes and more importantly, makes me want to give some of my own. Only mine will never look as good, but it's the thought that counts, right? ;o)

I finally have some beautiful professionally shot photos (thank you Ryan Kurtz) from the Cincinnati Magazine Summer 2014 feature at Obscura in Cincinnati, Ohio. The colors used were from Pantone's Spring 2014 Color palette, shown here:
Haven Cincinnati were the ones to style that amazing dessert table. Didn't they use a great variety of formal and natural vessels and risers? I'm still obsessed with those gold touched marshmallows. I'm selling the invitations here in my Etsy shop and I pulled together some styling and wedding decor ideas in this curated board on Pinterest.
