Well, you've seen the Vintage Postcard Save The Date I designed for my brother and his fiancé. And the runner-up Vintage Train Ticket. I guess it's about time I show you the invitation, huh?This invitation pays homage to our parents by using vintage wedding photos in place of their names. This creates a cool mix of traditional and non-traditional invitation elements, which is perfect for couples who want to be both conventional and unique.Check it out:Okay. How adorable are those throwback photos? They seriously make my heart melt.Anyway, this suite is now for sale at my Etsy shop. Stop on by!
A few weeks ago, I revealed the design that my brother and his fiancé chose as their Save The Date. And today, I'm excited to feature the runner-up.Like I mentioned, their proposal took place at Grand Central. So, I thought it fitting to present them with a vintage-inspired train ticket design. And even though they didn't choose it, I'm excited to now make the design available to anyone whose theme and dream it suits.So now, you can find it for sale on Etsy. Check it out! (And notice how the holes in the tickets are punched with an actual vintage railroad ticket punch. I'm super pumped about that thing!)
Some days I wonder if I was ready to start a blog.Why?Well, for one, I don't have a name for it yet.And two, I don't really have a defined purpose.But maybe that's okay! I once heard a story that when Benjamin Franklin observed one of the first hot-air balloon flights in 1783, someone asked him skeptically what the use of this new invention of flight could possibly be. Franklin responded with, "What is the use of a newborn child?"Touché.So like a newborn child, I am nurturing this blog until its identity forms naturally. And until then, like a newborn child, I just hope it brings you happiness and inspiration.Thanks for sticking it out with me!Benjamin Franklin is super inspirational. This is my interpretation of my favorite quote of his.Tell me, who inspires you most?
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy, we are all anxious to help in any way we can. In this blog post, I would like to thank my Philadelphia-based printer, Media Copy, for playing a big role in a very small relief effort of my own.This week, I received a note from one of my Etsy clients who recently purchased the This is the Time wedding invitation. Very sadly, Hurricane Sandy destroyed the family owned, Jersey Shore hotel where she was directing her guests to stay. She had not mailed the invitation suites yet, so she messaged me requesting updated information cards. She signed the note, “Stressed Out Bride.” The poor thing.I couldn’t imagine charging her for these, so I worked together with Media Copy to get it done for free. Though it was a small gesture, it made me feel good about people. And that doesn’t happen every day, does it? This country sure does come together in a time of need.And of course, there are lots of places online where we should all make donations to the relief effort. Like The American Red Cross, The Salvation Army and Food Bank for New York City to name a few. Let's do what we can!Tell me, in what other ways can we help out?
Today I am featuring another product from my Etsy shop.It is an invitation entitled, "This is the Time."It works for a lot of occasions including vintage-themed weddings or showers, New Year's Eve parties, or in the case of my latest client, Dana, New Year's Eve weddings.I absolutely love the potential of this theme. So below are some fun ideas for you, Dana, and all the other New Year's Eve brides out there!1. Clock centerpieces. These can also be used as table numbers if you set each clock to a different hour. Very elegant. (Vendors: Karson Butler Events and Sweet Tea Photography) 2. Clock dinnerware (Vendors: Karson Butler Events and Sweet Tea Photography) 3.

Link us to some pics in the comments. We would love to see!
Etsy is an e-commerce site for hand-made items. A virtual craft fair, if you will. And not too long ago, I opened my own storefront. I sell wedding and shower invitations, as well as save the dates. At the moment, options are limited, but there is much more to come.One of my most popular items is this Love Story save the date bookmark.I love it because it is memorable and unique. But most importantly, it is useful. And it is available for purchase here at $3 each.And yes, of course there is a matching Love Story wedding invitation suite. It will be featured on the blog later this week.Tell me, what's your favorite Etsy shop that we must check out?
