Etsy Finds

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Oh how I heart Etsy! For those of you who are unfamiliar with this wonderful website, Etsy is like hitting the 'handmade jackpot'! Sort of like eBay, but no bidding required and if you like something a seller is offering but want to tweak it a bit, you can contact them and customize an order just the way you like it. From lovely trinkets such as bridesmaid gifts to veils and invitations, this site is a one stop shop for for brides who don't want to 'look like everyone else', take a look at the variety of items you can find on here:

Can't Help FALLing in Love

Wednesday, October 6, 2010

My favorite season is FINALLY in fall affect! It isn't too cold to stay inside, but it certainly wouldn't hurt to add an extra "oomph" to enjoy the already naturally cozy outdoor ambiance. How to go about putting your own spin on it? For the bride who's got a flair for crafts and wants to take on a home-made, personal approach to your big day but is fresh out of ideas than just do-it-yourself invites, here are a few suggestions to get you stirring!
