hot pink hydrangeas

It's been too long! In October, I spent a little more time than usual in my other "shop", participating in my first two craft fairs. November saw a return to focusing on custom wedding and event stationery and my best month yet on Etsy! Adding a holiday design has helped keep me busy during this still somewhat slow time for wedding invitations (more on holiday designs in my next post). That I hope will change after the New Year!


In the meantime, let me begin the process of updating this blog with a little show & tell of a recent wedding order that began with save-the-dates and ended with day-of paper products.


This client contacted me shortly after getting engaged. She was interested in the hydrangea motif design in my shop but wanted to apply her bold and super-fun-to-work-with wedding palette of fuchsia, chocolate brown, and gold.


I loved working with her colors (you might have already noticed hot pink is one of my favorite colors) and figuring out how to get just the right amount of shimmer into her overall wedding stationery design. The design of the invitation overall stayed fairly true to the sample listing but wow, what a difference those changes in color made, huh?


Congratulations Melissa & Michael!
