ALYSSA'S 6TH BIRTHDAY PARTY

My daughter, Alyssa, decided that she wanted Taylor Swift (her favorite singer) to be the theme for her 6th birthday party. I used the album cover photo, titled 'RED', within the invitation design and on the thank you cards. I created coordinating water bottle labels and ordered red velvet cupcakes, which were a hit. Thought it would be cool to create CDs with Alyssa's favorite songs for her to pass out to all of her classmates on her actual birthday since the party was on the Saturday prior. Alyssa's Party Mix ranges from 'When Can I See You Again' to 'Party In The U.S.A.', and of course 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' is on it. Oh, and my husband and I bought tickets for the three of us to see Taylor in concert in May. Shhh, don't tell Alyssa. I cannot wait to share the surprise with her!

WEDDING TIMELINE CARD

About a year ago, I decided that I wanted to create a colorful wedding timeline card. One that was cuter...one that had more personality than the standard list of events and their times. I wanted to turn a useful card into a useful and cute card. Little did I know, that night was when my business would take a leap. Before I knew it, the cards were a hit. You can find them on Pinterest, they've been posted in blogs, and I often receive emails asking about them. The Etsy listing has received over 21,000 views. Not only is the timeline important to keep everyone in the loop about the events for the day (or weekend), but it can now be customized with colorful images that fit the couple's style and theme. With this fast paced world, there's no wonder that this has become a must-have for The Big Day.
