Thank you notes are one of the most important tasks post-wedding – so, as you get ready to write those thank you notes for you upcoming wedding & bridal shower, here are a few tips to keep in mind…
 
DON’T print out your thank you notes.
 
DO hand-write them.
 
DON’T send the same, generic thank you note to each guest.
 
DO tell them how grateful you are for their personal gift, and how you plan to use it.
 
DON’T wait longer than 3 months to send your thank-you notes. (per Emily Post)
 
DO send them out as soon as possible, after the wedding date. (For showers – we recommend sending them within 2 weeks after the shower date.)
 
DON’T address a cash gift directly. Instead, simply thank them for their generosity.
 
DO send one to every guest that attended – whether they brought you a gift or not.
 
Finally…
 
DON’T underestimate the power of a thank you note! It’s the easiest way to express your sincere gratitude – not only for the personal gift, but also for the gift giver themselves. Their presence at your big day is what makes it so special, so be sure to let them know how grateful you are for their attendance! =)

Happy Tuesday, friends!
 
On the first Tuesday of every month, join me in my new blog series, Tuesday Typography. Here, I’ll share with you my favorite typography finds & how to make them your own. Because a gorgeous font can brighten everyone’s day, am I right?
 
In my inaugural post, I’d like to introduce you to my first true {font} love. Meet Carolyna Pro Black….
 
 
Isn’t she gorgeous?! It’s one of many in the ever-popular Emily Lime font series, and is a great play on handwritten calligraphy. It’s also quite the popular script font for modern wedding invites, and pairs well with most san serif fonts. I can’t tell you how often my brides send inspirational photos that include this lovely font!
 
If you just HAVE to have it (like I did!), you can purchase & download it here —-> Carolyna Pro Black
 
Enjoy & happy typing! =)
 
Best,

With a baby around, there are “firsts” happening left and right. This morning, Brady woke up to his first Easter! After seeing the smiles on this kid’s face, I can say with confidence that the Easter Bunny did not disappoint…
 
   
 
Isn’t that little book set absolutely darling? I can’t wait to start reading him Peter Rabbit – it was one of my favorites as a kid! But for now, it’s naptime & then off to Grandma & Grandpa’s for family fellowship, Easter Lunch and our annual Easter Egg Hunt. =)
 
From our family to yours, we wish you a Happy Easter!
 
 
 
Best,
I’m a country girl, small business owner, wife, mother of three, and a proud alumna of Purdue University (Boiler Up!).
 
Wondering what life is like for a busy mom with a graphic design & laser cutting business? My days are filled with pretty paper, blissful brides, half-finished sketchbooks, half-eaten lunches, and lots of cuddling with my little ones. I look forward to sharing with you all of life's fun happenings (both in & out of the studio) here on the blog!
