get a little organized

When I was a little girl, my mother would always say, "Everything has its place." Now she likes to remind me that she would try to force me to pick up my toys, but I never would. She is shocked that I spend so much of my time thinking and talking about organization AND actually doing it! more...

unique wedding favors

Details make the day! Why not have something fun to help celebrate and remind people of your special event. Depending on your crowd and how you plan to display your favors, I would recommend that you not buy a favor for everyone attending.

With this in mind, there will be a little extra room in your budget to find something extra meaningful. Following are a few ideas that I have available at this time. I am always eager to brainstorm with you and come up with a creative new idea for your event.

I have a great affinity for small handmade books, but an even greater love for sharing stories. I decided to opt for a simpler and less expensive route and spent more time thinking about what I would like to include in the program. more...
