Wedding Hangers

21 Jul

Just last week, the person that I have lived with the longest other than my family members (3 years) got married! As a wedding gift, I crafted this wedding hanger for her:

I created the same thing for our engagement pictures and my wedding hanger. Since then, I’ve been receiving requests for commissions to make friends’ hangers and friends of friends’ hangers. I’m pretty pumped since I truly think it adds so much to the dress picture on the wedding day and I love doing these!

Excited to think about what I can do with it! An Etsy shop may be in my future… who knows!

Creating invites calls for this…

25 Jan

As you may remember in my post about our Save the Date card, I designed the stationary for our wedding. It was so important to me that the paper goods had a special meaning to them (more on that later).

After creating, printing, cutting and hand addressing (and cursive is not my strong suit) every invite and envelope, I realized one thing… that I was going to need a return address label – because I sure as heck was not about to write our address 200 times.

After much searching on Etsy, I came across this lovely store, Save the Date and was immediately sold on this self-inking, eco-friendly, customizable stamp.

I was so thrilled at how quick and easy it was to have our own stamp custom designed by Tiffany from this shop. I was even more thrilled at how quick and easy it was to stamp every envelope and response card when I promptly received the return address stamp in the mail. Happy to avoid the hand cramp from writing…

Plus, it was so exciting to see the new address on each of the envelopes and to receive response cards in the mail every day. I always look forward to the fiance telling me who has sent them back to his new home (soon to be our new home!).

What could you see a stamp like this coming in handy for? I’m thinking house-warming gifts, shower presents, etc. Do share!
