Email schmemail – what could be better than a tiny love note?

Write one to your soon-to-be or consider giving these as unique wedding invitations, favors or thank you cards to guests!  I mean really, who wouldn’t love to receive one of these darling treasures?

Here’s how it works:  You write a letter and it is transcribed onto tiny stationary with a magical transcription device.  The letter then goes into a see-through folded coin case and is packaged up with a magnifying glass in a larger glassine envelope, finished off with a wax seal.  It is put in a sturdy mailer for shipping.”Leafcutter Designs

Bachelor Pad Meets Newlywed Love Nest!

with 4 comments

…It’s Easier Than You’d Think!

 Marrying an amazing man but your plans are to move into his bachelor pad?  How on earth are you going to mesh your girly stuff with his guy decor?  Let’s face it, his ideas of home decor may not at the top of your design dream list. 

He loves you, so I’m sure he won’t mind you adding just a few touches, right?  It’s not like you have to stick flowers everywhere and paint the walls pink, for goodness sake.  I suppose you could…but why not compromise instead and combine your style with his?  One of the reasons you’re getting married is because you mesh well, right?  So I’m sure your walls can too…

With a little help from Etsy seller Geezees, you’ll have your newlywed love nest redesigned in no time!  Use your wedding vows, love letters or wedding pictures to create different sized custom canvas wall art.  Stylish, unique and affordable wall design…that will work well with no matter what strange things your man previously decorated with!

When you invite your friends and family over, you’ll be proud to show off the place you’ll now call home!  You’ll love it, he’ll love it, they’ll love it.  Maybe you can even create smaller ones as gifts for your friends, family or bridal party.  A little something special they’ll never forget.  Cheers!

Eternal Love Turned Glam…

…And Soared Right Into My Heart!

Ok, so I’m not writing a romance novel here, however this jewelry is most definitely glamorous and very romantic!  In chinese tradition, a pair of sparrows represent eternal love as the pair will live together until their partner dies.  Sparrows are also known to symbolize true love, dedication and trust…so do welcome this lovely little bird into your lives!

Wear one of these with your wedding ensemble if you’re looking for something a little outside the box! Or, instead, pair with a fab outfit for your bridal shower, bachelorette party or rehearsal dinner…to show off your heart soaring in love

Fancy Rings That Dare To Be Different…

with 2 comments

…Do You Dare?

Not a typical couple looking for typical rings?  This Seattle based jeweler has got you covered.  Fancy creates different styles for different couples.  Do you dare to be different?  Have your dream ring custom designed!

Happily Ever After Rings by Fancy: “Fabricated bands with stamped text ‘happily ever after’ with flush set rubies for the ellipses.”

 

Unwedding Ring by Fancy:  “For the modern modern couple, or the angry angry ex. Another option for the aforementioned text ring.”

If you prefer to have your dream ring custom made, it’s easy!  Just give them your ring size, which metal you’d like, options or designs you love on the Fancy site, the height preference of your ring, what kind of rocks you’d like – if any and what you’d like inscribed on the inside or outside of your ring.  They can do upper or lower case letters and can even work with custom artwork.  Choose features you’d like added or created and they can design the perfect handmade ring to suit your personal, unique style!

To learn more and see more ring designs along with other jewelry options, click HERE.  These would also make really cool bridesmaid gifts…as you can have them say whatever you’d like.  Yay for creativity!

Pay It Forward With Love…

leave a comment »

…Give Your Heart.

Looking for a unique gift idea?  Why not give your heart and just ask the recipient to pay it forward some day?  I’ve been blessed to have a quite a few people in my life who love me and who have helped me out in times of need.  All they asked is that I “pay it forward” someday.  I promise I will. 

Until then, I’m loving this idea by HeartIsHot.com.  These hearts are being given all over the world, then paid forward at special times when it seems like the thing to do.

Purchase hearts with someone in mind as a token of love, or “just to have” when the time is right. You never know when you might just feel impacted by someone on the street and have the desire to make a connection. We know all about that!  A percentage of profits on the sale of each heart is set aside for donation to select charitable organizations.”HeartIsHot.com
