helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

As you can see my little blog has gotten over its issues and all of my photos are back- hooray! So glad that's over. Thanks to everyone who commented or voted on my Save-the-Date ideas! I truly appreciate the feedback and considered every suggestion you all offered to me. You all had some really great ideas and asked questions that truly made me think- especially about who we are as a couple and how the STD would reflect the tone of the wedding- very thought provoking! I DO find it very funny that the one that got the most votes was not of our faces- are you all trying to tell me something? haha! At first I was really overwhelmed with all the suggestions but after some thinking we've decided what we're going to do… of course I will share it with you, but not until I have them printed and in my hands! I think it's a good compromise, even though it's not what I had originally intended to do… but you'll just have to wait and see what I came up with! I'm placing the order this afternoon so as long as I don't get cold feet I should be getting them back really soon.

I got alot of comments and emails asking if I made these myself, and the answer is yes! I am a graphic designer so I am lucky to have the software and mad skillz required to pull it off, but it's really not very difficult! I draw inspiration from so many places and I really enjoy what I do. I am open to doing freelance jobs for anyone who is interested (sorry I haven't gotten time to respond to individual emails this weekend!) I also had a question about the Wordle Save-the-Date, which I talked about here. After you complete the steps from that tutorial, I just copied and pasted the word cloud on top of the photo and voila!- a Wordle/Photo Save-The-Date!

I don't have a whole lot to report other than that, but I just wanted to say THANK YOU again for all of the feedback and support. You guys are AWESOME. Happy Monday!!!

thank you
