Y’all, this week has been a doozy. It was a challenge physically (why didn’t God bless me with more hands?!), mentally (can I really get all of these invites out in time?), and emotionally (Wrigley’s sad puppy eyes when I continuously had 0 time to play with him nearly brought me to tears). But I made it through! I still have 3 new Mood Boards, Proposals & Swatch Boxes to get through, along with a few day-of stationery designs for June weddings, but I’m finally able to see that beautiful light at the end of the proverbial tunnel! Usually during busy times I have Team Bluebird here helping me (aka: my mom and my dad) but they had to jet back to their other lives in NJ for a few weeks, so I’m here by myself just doing my best to meet deadlines, make all of my brides feel the love that I have for them, and occasionally.. shower. 😩😂 As wild as these busy days of invitation mailings get, I’m super grateful for the amazing couples that I get to work with every day, the badass wedding vendors that I get to call my friends, my husband who continues to cheer me on (and help out) whenever he can, and my friends (I’m looking at you @katiesmu82!) who pitch in, send words of encouragement, and remind me to just throw my hair up and rock it all out! 💪🏻💃🏼 That’s all for me today, friends. Cheers to Friday’s and to doing what you love. 💌 #letsdothisthing #youcandoit #justkeepswimming
You know how when some people get super stressed they just repeat over and over again the mantra Wide open spaces. Wide open spaces. Wide open spaces...? Well, mine is Thick cotton paper. Thick cotton paper. Thick cotton paper. 🤣 Works like a charm every single time. 👌🏻 #mantra #crazypaperlady #cottonpaper #letterpress #weddingseasonmadness #husslehard // Photo: @elizabethnordphoto
Happy Monday, friends! Wow, this is going to be a WEEK if you know what I mean. Today we're printing envelopes and assembling suites for 4 upcoming #bluebirdweddings, wrapping up design on two more custom invite suites, and patiently waiting on the arrival of printed items for three more upcoming weddings. Ay yi yi! Tuesday and Wednesday I get to meet two brides that I have been talking with a TON lately, but haven't had the opportunity to meet in person yet (and I'm so excited to finally meet them!) and then Thursday I head out of town for a long weekend with my husband to celebrate our anniversary -- 9 years together, y'all. NINE YEARS!
It’s all about the details! #handdrawnmap #nycbride #nycmap #newyorkwedding // Photo: @jenniferkathrynbrandphotos
