Oh man, I wish I had the graphic design talents of some of the other bees.  I guess I’m using my creativity nonetheless, and hopefully my writing ability will help make our wedding blog, invitations and thank you notes stand out in our guests’ minds!

Mr. MoSnow’s such a great artist!

Fiance is going to use his graphic design degree and design our invitations. I don’t have any great artistic talents, but I’m going to try to DIY as much as possible.

I work in the advertising world, and even though I’m on the account service side of things, I have learned enough along the way to design our entire stationary suite for the wedding.  I love to scrapbook as well, so I will be making our guestbook.  It’ll be a scrapbook with photos of me and my Fiance throughout the years, with plenty of room for guests to write us notes.

I have yet to really think about anything else I plan on crafting at this point!

Cute!! I love his sketches. It has to feel great to you to have not only an invite, but a keepsake because it is now so personal!

I’m a graphic designer so I’m making all of ours… but that’s also a curse! I can’t decide what I want to do because I have too many ideas! lol

Here are some I’ve done for friends and family.

For Kaycee’s daisy one, I made light blue gatefold cards and put the invite inside them, wrapped it in a yellow ribbon with a monogram on it. It was a LOT of work, but not hard, and it was so cute when it was put together that is was very worth it.

Then for my cousin I made a leafy branch one. I had so many people like it that I opened an etsy shop haha. I’m also an illustrator though, so I don’t know if I want to draw mine by hand or do it on the computer. AHH!! DIY is good and bad at the same time. 🙂

@Mo:  Show off your mister’s talent!  No shame!  The sketch will look lovely in chocolate brown.

@LLauRRa:  I love the Jim & Pam invite!  So cute!  :o)

I’m doing a little bit of everything for our wedding.  I’ve designed the save the dates, invtiations, maps, menus and programs.  With the help of Cricut, I’ll be making the seating cards to hang on the manzanita tree that Fiance and I made together.  Monogram wreaths, silhouette plaques, direction signs, baking the favors, coloring books for the kids… all sorts of things.  It’s fun for me and keeps the stress levels down.
