wedding timeline card

Saturday, August 25, 2012

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.

My memory's horrible, but for some reason, I can remember the very night that I created my first timeline card. It was 2 am and I was propped up in bed. Late nights are common for me, but working at a comfortable place is not...9 times out of 10, I stand at my kitchen counter -- for hours. Anywoo, 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.

bambi walk

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Ever heard of the Bambi Walk? If you don't live in Louisville, you may need me to fill you in...

A bar off Bardstown Road in Louisville, Kentucky opened in the mid 50's. Legend has it that deer-print wallpaper once covered the walls and the nickname Bambi Bar eventually stuck. But the most famous thing about the bar is the Bambi Walk, which is a drinking journey that started in the 80's. The walk starts at Bambi Bar, travels down Bardstown Road (a street lined with local watering holes), and ends at Phoenix Hill. The challenge is to have a drink at every stop along the way.

Now, I've been on a Bambi Walk (many years ago), but this is the first bachelorette party invitation I've created with a silhouette of Bambi on it. I have to say, I couldn't help but laugh when Jess asked me to put a tattoo on the cute little fawn...and of course, I had to add a heart.
