Fall weddings!

Isn't this couple beautiful? I am in love with these thank you cards. The bride requested envelopes the color of "Tahitian Waters," and they happened to match the groom's tie perfectly.

These thank you cards were printed on textured white cardstock and blank inside.

Eric and Katie are getting married sooo soon, and here is a sneak peak of their wedding invitation. Printed on a shimmery pearl cardstock with silver and navy embellishments.
Very excited to show you the whole thing once their wedding has happened :)
I am also itching to show you Alex and Jenna's entire wedding suite. Their invitations, programs, accessories for their reception and thank you cards are all so adorable, and perfect for a late-September wedding. Their wedding is at the end of this month, so I will share after that.
In the meantime, imagine yellows and greens and sunflowers :)


More wreaths!

This time of year, my crafting gets out of control!
But I love it :)

After seeing my blogpost with this wreath Anne requested that I make her one for their B&B.

awkward angle, gorgeous wreath

 Then Jennie requested that I make her a "Think Pink" wreath for breast cancer awareness month (October).

I strung sparkly pink beads throughout hers and found this most perfect pink ribbon head scarf to use instead of a ribbon. I think it's subtle enough to have up year-round if she wants.

I've seen various interpretations of this wreath, including looping scrapbook paper instead of ribbon and using hot glue instead of stick pens. All great ideas. The scrapbook paper one is probably significantly cheaper than the ribbon, as it takes a LOT of ribbon to construct one of these beauties.

Happy crafting!

Organization makes me happy!

I think I may have a problem.
But it's a good problem to have!

I am obsessed with organization.

Exhibit A:

Personalized just for me!
by month

by time of day
pockets for receipts, stamps, labels, stickers...  

Now instead of carrying around various notebooks for all of these things, I have it all in one fun, fancy planner! Who gets this excited about organization? Except for maybe this girl who introduced me to this ridiculousness in the first place. Love ya, Becks!

Now I can even more excitedly keep track of all of you lovely clients and your wedding days.

As well as my running schedule as I prepare of my first marathon (26.2 miles) in April. I just completed my first half marathon (13.1 miles) in Philly, and have another one coming up in November. And I am sooooo excited that I have found myself really, really having a passion for such a healthy activity. I remember the days of walk/running a 5k and barely making it to the finish. I hope I find myself looking back on my half marathons and feeling like I've come far once I accomplish my 26.2.

at the 5k mark and feeling good!

FINISH! Still feeling great!

I have recently started making and selling these fall ribbon wreaths. Let me know if you want one! They are seriously so beautiful, I want to eat them. They can be made for basically any holiday! I predict I'll be whipping one up for Christmas in a couple of months.
(Christmas is a couple of months? Holy cow...)

fully customizable!
In between these fun crafts and hobbies, the November/December wedding season has arrived for those of us in the wedding pre-planning stages determined to give you the most gorgeous day! I plan to have some items from recent weddings to show in the coming days.

Snuggle up to someone you love as the weather turns and the leaves begin to fall.

Thankful Thursday Linky!!

Linking up with Megan over at Blissfully Burton today :) What am I thankful for?

1. This lovely 3-day weekend coming up, which I am kicking off by hanging out with 2 of my most favorite kiddos in all the land: Grace and Jack! Love!

2. Dinner tonight with super fun friends. It's nice to have a friend whose husband is the head chef at a swanky restaurant!! See? Super fun!

3. Rollover minutes so I can still talk to my favorite sister now that she switched providers:

4. Awesome friends, family, extended family and boyfriend who gave me such a fun birthday 1 week ago!

5. This series. Which has completely inspired me! If you're a woman with a pulse, you will love reading about these four best friends who run a high-end wedding business and find love with four very handsome men.

6. Hotel and plans booked for my first half marathon on Sept. 18. Rock N Roll Philly Half Marathon

Wish me luck! Happy Thursday :)
