Sometimes it’s the little things in life that really make your day. You know, like getting to drink a nice glass of red wine and eat tasty fisherman’s stew while sitting next to a lovely wood stove on a cold day in December at your favorite restaurant. Or, stomping through puddles like a child on a spring day while wearing big rubber boots with little cherries all over them. Or, having 450 (!) people call you a favorite on etsy! Yeah, I may be gloating just a bit, but we reached 450 fans today in our etsy shop, which is pretty rad. Thank you to everyone out there, who has helped to make this possible. You are the best…
I’ve really been enjoying catching all of you up this week on a few wedding invitation suites I designed and printed this past spring/summer that I didn’t get to feature right away! The suite I’m about to show you was printed last spring for a lovely couple who were married in late July in Jacksonville, Florida! Amanda and Matthew’s wedding colors were blue, white and black and they desired a whimsical, yet modern invitation suite featuring hand-drawn line art of various “landmarks” near, in or around their wedding venues. Here is what we came up with!
a’s address on the front, printed in black ink, and a characterful mailbox with her actual address numbers on the side. You can’t see the numbers on the side of the box because they are blurred out for privacy purposes, but let me tell you – the whole thing was super-cute. Here are the reply card and envelope together:
If you’ve been following this blog for a while now, you may remember a very pretty little set of black and white save-the-date cards that I designed and printed back in February for a couple who were married this past September in Wheeling, West Virginia. I know it’s been quite a while since then, so if you either weren’t following us then or don’t recall what I’m talking about, check out the Save-the-Date cards here. I realized while writing yesterday’s post, that I hadn’t ever shown off the rest of Sherry and Thomas’ suite, and they were just so cool, I couldn’t resist. You can see all of the pieces in the main invitation suite together at the top of this post.

I want to give a quick shout-out to a blogger who recently featured one of our Crane String Cards on her blog in a holiday card round-up! Head over to Little Gray Pixel and check out the feature here. It’s not too late to order holiday cards, so if you are interested in the Crane String or other holiday designs from Twin Ravens Press, check them out in our etsy store!
During the summer months, Twin Ravens Press prints a lot of wedding invitations. Often we are working with so many couples at the same time that even though we’re turning out lots of gorgeous stationery, we often don’t have the time to feature it on this blog right before or right after the actual event. However, because it’s all so lovely, I sometimes like to share it with you anyway, even if it’s been a few months since the event took place. The suite I’m about to show you is one such wedding suite. This suite was completed last May for a lovely couple in Virginia who were getting married in a church and having their reception at Virginia Tech University!
I hope everyone out there (in the US) had a very Happy Thanksgiving! If you haven’t checked out our etsy store lately, you should, as you will find several lovely holiday cards for sale there. We are going to be listing even more holiday card designs over the next two weeks, so please check back frequently!
Happy Friday Everyone! If you’re in the Eugene/Springfield, Oregon area this weekend and are looking for something fun to do, come out to the Meet Your Maker Holiday Show + Sale this Sunday at the Fenario Gallery in downtown Eugene! The Fenario Gallery is located at 881 Willamette Street and the show will run from 11:00-5:00. The Fenario Gallery is a much larger space than the show has been in before, so there will be many more vendors and lots of holiday goodies to check out! I’ve been busy this week printing up lots and lots of holiday cards, all of which will be available on Sunday!
Shortly after I wrote this post earlier this morning about the stationery we created for Tamera & Trevor’s Montana wedding last July, Tamera e-mailed me and shared some photos from their wedding day! She gave me permission to share some of them with you and I figured you might like to see the gorgeous celebration that their gorgeous stationery was for! Tamera and Trevor are such a cute couple. I really love the photo of them in the canoe, and make sure your scroll down and check out their cake. Gorgeous! All wedding photos are courtesy of Lauren Brown Photography.
