Early Arrival

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

IMG_4358Well, our little one decided to come a little early.  He is absolutely precious, and I am so excited to finally be a mother.  So amazing, I can’t even describe it!  It has been a whirlwind the last couple weeks, and I’m sure it will get even more hectic.

If you hadn’t guessed, I will be taking off quite a bit of time to enjoy my little baby boy.  I will still be checking email, but will not be accepting new orders at this time.

Cream Shimmer Invitation Assembly

Don’t get me wrong, I love making invitations,…but assembling a large order while eight months pregnant is proving to be much more difficult than I imagined.  I am so grateful to have quite a few family members who have offered to help.  I’m not sure I could finish without them!

These monochromatic invites are absolutely gorgeous.  The bride wanted all white and cream, so we designed the invites on white luxe paper and added a few touches of shimmer with organza ribbon bows at the top, an opal metallic backing, and opal metallic inner envelopes and RSVP envelopes.  Doing the inner envelopes in a shimmer and the outer envelopes in the textured luxe paper creates an effect almost like an envelope liner, but without the extra cost.  I think the final result is very elegant.
