FRUITS OF LABOR

Remember all of that whiny business about how busy I am this week? Well, I have good reasons - working extra hours at one job, still working a few hours a week at each of 2 other jobs, picking up a couple extra freelance jobs and preparing for the once a year Wedding Showcase this Sunday. Whew!

(For the record, it all still beats my old job any day of the week!)

Anyway, with the Wedding Showcase just around the corner, I had some serious work to do to create my handouts. The showcase is an annual expo of 78ish area wedding vendors with 500 plus brides, bridesmaids and mothers getting as much information as they can in a short 5 hour period. It's so much fun and sooo exhausting! I end up talking non-stop for the entire show to hundreds of people.

In preparation for my big marketing venture of the year, I needed to pull together my handouts. It's really important to me that they reflect the originality and creativity that go into my invitation designs, but they also have to be mass-produce-able (word?) since I put hundreds of them together by hand.

So, with no further ado, this is what I put together for this year:
(This was a very impromptu photo-shoot, so the lighting isn't that great - the colors in the first photo are most accurate.)

If you or someone you know is in the market for custom-designed wedding invitations, you know who to call!
