Shop Update:

This weekend I worked on the blog + shop. Can you tell, what I added to the blog? Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find out! I added a 3-Column page to the footer of the blog. The footer area is where I will add shop info, and so forth. What do you think? I'm just trying add a little bit of the unexpected with all the shop info I have to set up.

I set up a few images for the front page of shop. I thought I might share them with you. Here are a hand full of products we have done for customers over the last year. Hope you like them!

Customer Appreciation Photo!

A very special bride sent me this photo of her on her wedding day, last week. This totally made my day. I adore it when brides send me photos of their wedding day. Its one of the best feelings ever! Rebekah recently got married on October 22nd, 2011 in Knoxville, TN. She made a gorgeous bride and couldn't look prettier! Congratulations Rebekah and Todd, Happy Marriage!

Rebekah is wearing my "Sunshine Yellow Corsage Sash" from my shop: Pinktea6

Wedding Outfits: Inspiration

I tend to heart/admire many wedding items on Etsy. I don't know whether it's because it just appeals to me, or whether it inspires my wedding shop's product line. Either way, I know that I am not planning a wedding, so I find it rather funny. I gathered some of my favorite things on Etsy, to create some inspiration boards. Even though, I'm not planning a wedding, I think I still want to get all of these things!

Sweetest Thing: Modern Luxe Events

I recently wrote about Modern Luxe Events on Wedding Window, but this Etsy Store is so great + sweet + lovely, I had to post about it again. This shop sells fondant flowers and other cake decorating items, how great is that??? Hehe.. I can't wait to plan/organize a special party event, just so I can order all the little treats from this shop! I think it's a great idea. It kinda makes a unprofessional/untalented cake decorator like myself, look great. What do you think?

Happy Wedding :)

Shop Update:

It seems like we no longer have a social life... haha... this past summer we have been busy as bees trying to develop new products, making sales and trying our best to get the blog and wedding shop business started. Here are a few products that we worked on over the summer. What do you think? I wish I had more time to post new products. Every time I get close to listing something new, shop sales, errands, and everything else gets in the way. I hope when fall comes, I'll get more time to work on the wedding shop!

Happy Wedding :)

Etsy Shop: Using Old Family Photos

I worked on posting a new item on our Wedding Day Tree Shop (in between waking up @ 3am on Saturday morning to catch a 6am flight to Salt Lake City, coming back at 11pm the same day, and celebrating our niece's 100th day birthday on Sunday morning). This item is aimed for the guys out there, however I hope that everyone will enjoy it. We design some humorous quote bubble magnets. What do you think?

I decided to show off these magnets by using some old family photos as inspirations. I'm hoping it will present old vintage feel, of which I try to portray in all of our products in the shop.

 This old family photo is of my Uncle on Christmas Day. You can see he is a happy boy getting a new (now classic) Batmobile... how lucky was he?

 This photograph is actually pretty new --- made to look vintage. Taken in 2009 at our wedding. These boys were playing with these rings that had a red laser in them (courtesy of my aunt), I guess toys these days are upgraded, don't you agree?

This is another old family photo of my Aunts, when they are little. I actually think I look like the one of the right. I swear I have a old family photo of myself, and I looked exactly like that! Or maybe it's because I too, had a rice bowl hair cut.

Follow Up:

A few blog posts ago, I had posted options on which "Happily Ever After" Sign appeals the most to you.

There were 3 Options:

The bride and finalized her decision on Option # 1 (for those who were curious). However, I have come to like Option # 2 very much. So much, that I am now offering it in the shop! Here's how Option #2 turned out, (My husband and I worked late into the late working/engraving option #1 for our customer, that I completely forgot to photograph it :( Sorry!... but at least you can see the sign chosen for the shop!).

Blog Update:

This past has been jam packed with work! I've been super busy at the office (my full time job as an graphic designer) and have been busy with my Etsy life. Thankfully the weekend came (hurray!) and then it left! (darn) Now it's back to work...

The photo above is just because I updated the blog layout again. :) I keep debating my blog design on how I showed layout my side bar. I finally decided on what to do: Use Giant Icons to link to our Facebook Fan Page & Twitter, etc... I also added in the our followers again.. What do you think?

I am also working on an Etsy Job to make a Wedding Sign. What do you think? Which option do you like? I am liking option #2. Can you choose which option, even though I designed all of them? LOL... It's like I would show an option I didn't like....

Happy Wedding :)

Shop Update:

We just finished this adorable Wedding Sign for a customer. Isn't it cute? This wooden sign took many painstaking long hours to create, which included designing, sealing, engraving, and coating yet again with another sealer. The sign is actually a blown up version of the wedding invitation to be used as a decor item at the wedding (this weekend!!!!) What do you think about the final project? Good enough for a wedding?

Happy Wedding :)

Happy Friday

Things have been crazy lately! We've been super busy professionally and in personal life. It seems that there are not enough hours in a day! Mr. Wedding Day Tree and I will be heading out of town this weekend (in time for the big LA 405 fwy closure ---- if you live in the Southern CA area)...

Here are a few photos of project recently for the shop. Project: Wishing Tree Tags! for a big birthday celebration... Cute Idea, Yes?

We had some fun at Unique LA, (as you can see). We also sold some prototypes at Oh Hello Friend's Booth! We sold some photo booth moustaches + scrap booking tags and some flower accessories... To bad, we didn't have the forethought to use our moustaches in the Oh Snap Studio's Photo booth! Oh Well! Here are a few pics of our products at the show:

Next blog post will be the beautiful wedding of Jaclyn + Garrett Rodgers! Oh so Pretty! Wait and See!
