Rebecca & Jake's Wedding & more

OK, so I'd just like to say sorry about the whole blog for a couple weeks and then go MIA for 5 months thing! Haha :) Life just got so busy so I put this little blog on the back burner. Had a WONDERFUL Summer keeping more than busy with invitations and other orders. I created some of my most favorite pieces these past few months! I love what I do and so glad things are starting to pick up to where I'm not so "little" anymore. I'm currently working with a vendor on designing invitations for her "Launch" party (more details to follow), created some super cute cards for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Illinois and recently created everything paper for my sister's wedding last weekend! Her wedding turned out SO perfect. The candy buffet table was a BIG hit and turned out FABULOUS! Here are some of the pictures. (Professional pictures taken by the fabulous Photos by Vitella).

Suuuuuper cute, right?! I made the "LOVE IS SWEET" letters out of scrapbooking paper added to letters I got at Hobby Lobby for 99 cents each :) Some of the candy included M&M's, Sixlets, Gumballs, Jordan Almonds, Hershey's Kisses, Hershey's Assorted Chocolate Bars, White Chocolate Covered Pretzels, Jelly Beans, After Dinner Mints, Saltwater Taffy, Rock Candy and more! I'm OBSESSED with themed sweet tables and glad my first one turned out the way I envisioned it :) Can't wait to style more!!

Currently working on a few Fall photo cards....here's ours for this year...Cami had a blast at the pumpkin farm! I got her cute little pumpkin shirt on etsy.com :) (Of course, I did!)

I'm also starting to create my Holiday Card Collection for 2010! I'm having soooo much fun creating them this year and can't wait to show them off after October 31st!! Pricing is my lowest EVER this year and is comparable and even cheaper than Shutterfly, etc. My cards are printed on a heavyweight cardstock, not the thin photo paper like you would get at Walgreens, etc. I'm having fun creating this ugly sweater holiday party invite for my cousin....love it! :)

I hope you all had a great Summer! And when I say "you all" I'm probably only talking to about four family and friends who read this :) Haha, hoping to increase my "followers" as things get moving along :) As always, thank you SO much for your continued support, business and referrals! I appreciate you all more than you know!

Lastly, here is a recent picture from Cami's 18 month pictures taken by the fabulous Ellie Dennin-Piper with Vitella Dennin Photography! She is amazing so you must check her out!
Isn't she the cutest little thing you ever did see!?!?! We sure think so! :) She's 1 1/2 going on 4 :)

Oh wait...one more...sorry, but this may be my most favorite picture EVER!! (Photo taken by Chelsea Corinne Photography, www.chelseacorinne.com)

I'll be back real soon.....I promise this time! :)
Xoxo, Michelle


  1. So I'm dying to know, did you design the candy buffet table and put it all together or did you just do the paperwork for it? It looks great and I would love to have one at my wedding next May!

  2. Hi Alicia! Sorry, I just saw this comment! I designed/styled the table :) Candy buffets are the hot new trend for wedding favors! :)
