Creativity Challenge

At the beginning of the month I responded to a creativity challenge thread on etsy and received 3 vintage pharmacy labels from TinkersShop to create whatever my heart desired. Well, I think that maybe my creativity fell a little short from some of the other shops participating.

2009 Wedding Pledge

I've taken the pledge to write about a person in the wedding industry I admire. This pledge was brought about by and as soon as I heard about it I knew that I had to do it. So without further ado, today I give you Kristin from iDoOriginals.

Kristin launched iDoOriginals in 2006 as an affordable avenue for brides to completely personalize every aspect of their own special day. She actually started her business after making her own wedding personal with great monograms and carried that over to other brides she met on the knot. Today she offers monograms, aisle runners, table runners, banners, parasols, candles and embroidery, even corporate logos. She has been featured in the knots Best of Weddings 2009, Northern Virginia Bridal Planner, and Wedding Style Magazine and buzzed about on many different online publications. Kristin truly has a knack for creating the beautiful and breathtaking pieces guests will rave about at weddings.

Here are just a few of my favorite pieces she has done recently:

Thanks Kristin for helping make weddings more personal and beautiful!!

This week weighs heavy on my heart. Thursday April 16th marks the second anniversary of the horrible events that took place at Virginia Tech. While I am not an official Hokie, I graduated from Radford, my blood will always run maroon and orange. I lived in Blacksburg, VA for six years and VT was a huge part of my life. My husband actually attended VT for the first part of his college career and was actually a VT laughing. :)

While life continues to go on I don't want anyone to forget the special people that were lost that day. If you would like to learn more about the individuals on the list below you can read about them here. Please keep the family and friends of these individuals in your thoughts and prayers throughout this difficult week.
