Having a good calendar for all your appointments and ideas is CRITICAL as your wedding date approaches….thats why I picked up a Start Here calendar for 2008. Its great because I can attach a notebook to it for notes during vendor meetings, and it has pockets for all my little clippings. Get yours from See Jane Work…

I wanted to sincerely thank everyone for the birthday wishes and taking my quiz….I really learned a lot! One question that actually came up a lot was wanting to see some stuff I’m doing for my own wedding….to be honest, a lot of that stuff hasn’t been worked out yet! I’ve been buying tons of things here and there, but nothing has been put together yet [like my table centerpiece vases] but rest assured, when I start working on them, I will be sharing a lot of info! So bear with me until then…
[sassy card from uncooked] [LOVE them!]
ok, I lied….THIS will be the only post today….
Alisha from Palindrome Press emailed me about her new letterpress venture…she’s got some beautiful new wedding sets! You might know her from her etsy shop where she sells darling knitting themed letterpress cards [see last picture above]. All this month, she’s offering 15% off all custom orders, so order away!

Here’s Amy’s invitation suite….I’m amazed at all the different aspects and how personal each and every one is!
The espresso cup with a heart in it actually happened to me just
after Scott and I started dating. He and I were at my 30th birthday
dinner. I told him that if he were an old Turkish Lady he could read
my fortune from the grinds. He swirled the cup around and a heart
appeared. I used this image for our rehearsal dinner.
I also caught the bouquet in my best girlfriends wedding… just days
before Scott and I were engaged. I used the snapshots in the
invitation to the bridal shower that my mother threw.
The image on the front of our program and one set of thank yous
(Hearts/Crown) is inspired by the Scottish Luckenbooth. It is a
symbol that represents Love Loyalty and Luck. I used it in honor of
my sweet grandmother who lived with us when I was a child. I replaced
the Royal crown with Lady Libertys and added two fat and happy birds
(as my grandmother was an avid bird-watcher and care taker) She passed
12 years ago and I felt it would be a nice way to remember her. I
added our initials and made it our seal.
