I love clients who are not afraid of color and like to stay away from the norm.  This couple exemplifies just that.  Their colors alone scream FUN!  Since the seaside celebration will be hosted in CT, the bride wanted to convey the nautical term "tying the knot" in the save-the-date without actually writing it.  And because of the bride's father's love of letterpress, it was only fitting to do the entire save-the-date in letterpress.  Not only does this save-the-date set the tone for the event, it makes me so excited for the invite.  Such a fun collaboration!

Also, I had to show you the production delay we endured.  Gotta love that little girl!

One of my favorite clients asked me to design their baptism invitations for their sweet little girl.  This client seriously has the most beautiful girls, and I religiously (no pun intended) stalk their pictures on Facebook.  I wanted to create an invitation that was as beautiful as her brand new little girl, Reese.  I think I did just that by using my new favorite color combo.

Lately I have been getting requests from my clients wondering if I make announcement posters, and luckily for them I do.  The framed posters are a new hot trend to hang in the house as a rememberance of their celebratory event.  I do both wedding and baby announcement posters, and can match any color scheme and theme.  Please inquire if interested....they make great gifts ;)

So this blog post is quite interesting...mainly because it is almost three weeks after Christmas and I should be posting about other things like Valentine's Day inspirations or diy projects.  Needless to say, I can't believe I forgot to write about this before Christmas!!  Regardless of my poor timing, I had to show everyone.

Since I have a slight obsession with Pinterest, the majority of the inspiration for this gift package came from this website.  So with this being said,  I can not take full credit for all the ideas.  I can, however, take credit for the paper good designs, which will be up on Etsy later this year ;)

I like the idea of giving themed diy presents, and this year the theme was Reindeer.  In the gift package, I included a reindeer antler headband, reindeer noses (which were malted chocolate balls and one red peanut M&M), reindeer cupcakes, and reindeer droppings.  With this package, I also gave a gift of their favorite spirits dressed up in reindeer attire.

I love DIY Christmas gifts so much that I already have my next Christmas gifts planned.

Written on the back of the reindeer droppings is "I woke with such a fright when I heard Santa call..."now dash away, dash away, dash away all!"  I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts, those nasty reindeer had left "little gifts."  I got an old shovel and started to scoop neat little piles of reindeer poop!  But to throw them away seemed such a waste, so I  saved them, thinking you might like a taste!"
