This Week's Featured Wedding Invite

Last week I had the pleasure of working with Carla Lee on her amazing wedding invitations. Carla and her fiance Christopher wanted to incorporate their two minature grey hounds into their invite. Of course my cartoon wedding invites offer a unique alternative for this situation. Carla mailed her carefully choosen photos to me. Once received I looked through them to choose the best images. I couldn't believe the charisma these dogs possess. By the time I was done I was laughing and planning my second dog purchase! (ok future purchase Isabelle may note be ready yet) Not to be upstaged by their dogs the couple themselves were just as expressive. And I must say the bright colors of the design done in green and orange had me rethinking my own wedding colors. That is one color combo I don't use often enough. So cheers to another not only inspiring couple but inspiring family!

Amazing Baby Shower Cakes

One of my recent customers was looking for a custom design. She was kind enough to send with her photo examples of the items she was using for the Baby Shower. The theme of the shower was storks. As I was looking through her paperwork I noticed the photo of a stork cake. Along side of it she noted "The cake no one can make". I'm thinking to myself no one.... I know someone. So I did some research and found that one of my past customers Christee was only an hour away. Christee makes some of the most amazing cakes. So I forwarded her info to the customers in need. Christee contacted me a few days ago to thank me for the referral. I gasped at the gorgeous photo of her cake and adorable cupcakes with my work as the backdrop.

So make sure to check out Christee's work at www.badasscakes.com I did notice they are creating a new site. But she is also listed as one of my friends here on myspace so you can check out her work there as well.

So to all of you with small businesses like myself, let me know what you are up to. You never know when I may need you!

Tea Length Wedding Dress

For many brides the search for the actual bridal gown is the most important part of the process. I found this to be true for myself when searching for my own dress. Of course I had to be more difficult than your average bride. I did not want your average dress. Our wedding is going to be more like a small party of 50-60 guests in the theme of old Hollywood. So my goal was to find a dress that was around knee length. I was lucky enough to find a line of brides maid's dresses that came in white. Now mind you my search was not very long and I ended up with a fabulous dress. But low and behold I find a website that fits every aspect of what I was looking for in a dress after I have actually found one! So to all of your brides looking for something a little different I suggest checking out Stephanie James Couture. http://stephaniejamescouture.com Now if I could just find someone to create my invitations LOL!
