A look back on 2008...

2008 was my busiest year yet. So busy that I could hardly find the time to blog properly or even post new pictures of the invites I did this year. I finally have the time to do both. With the help of one of my favorite photographers, Alison Bates (, I am able to show you some of my work from this year. Below are some of the items I did throughout the year.

Happy Holidays!

Where did 2008 go? I swear the older I get the faster the days, months and years go by. I remember being little and some event I was looking forward to always took forever to get here. Not the same anymore!!

I've had a fantastic year! Only because of all of my great clients that I have worked with this year and in past years. It really has been a great to work with each and every one of you. I'm always so sad when each bride gets married because by that point, they're more like a friend than a customer to me. (It's crazy how it works out because I now see 2 of my brides on a regular basis at the gym!) I'm blessed to be doing what I love for people who are so fantastic. Thank you to each and every one of you for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day. I know how special that day is, and I feel very honored to be a part of each and everyone of them. 

To my past brides/customer - Thank for you all your referrals. It's amazing what word of mouth does for a business. I appreciate each and every one of you.

To my vendor friends - you are the best!! I'm so lucky to have friends in the business like you. It's nice to be able to bounce ideas off of you, talk about situations and help each other out. I appreciate all the help you have given me this year.   

This past year was a bit busier than past years and I've had to rely on friends and family to help me get through the busy season. My mom, step-mother, sister, girlfriends and more importantly my husband have helped me through my busiest year yet. (Yes, there have been several times my hubby has cut ribbons and folded paper for me - it's the cutest thing) Whether it was doing bows, assembling invites, cutting ribbons or filing receipts, I could not have made it without you guys. It's a blessing that I have so much support from my family and friends. 

With looking forward to 2009, I'm excited to be embarking on a whole new adventure. I'm really expanding my horizon with my business and trying new ideas. 2009 will be my 4th year in business. I never dreamed that I would be where I am today. Thank you, to everyone I have worked with in the past and will have the honor to work with in the future, for being apart of making my dream job come true. 

Best of luck to everyone in 2009!
