Giveaway: Li’l Tweet Stitch Kit

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

I finally have the complete set of baby shower goodies up on my Etsy shop! It seems that so many people I know are having babies these days so I felt inspired to make a baby shower kit of sorts. When I hosted a friends shower last year I had such a blast but it was quite the challange to come up with all the details. Hopefully this set will make planning a little easier for some of you.

This set, fondly named “Li’l Tweet”, is just the beggining of what I hope to offer in my shop but to celebrate I wanted to host a little give away! One lucky winner will recieve a Li’l Tweet Stitch Kit in one of four colors: green, pink, yellow or blue.

*To enter, just leave a comment below with your first name and last initial and tell us what you would do with your very own Li’l Tweet. You have until 11:59 PDT Thursday, April 2, to enter. The winner will be selected randomly on April 3rd and announced on Twig & Thistle, Monday, April 6th! Good luck!

NOTE: THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED

Illustrated Invite

Friday, February 20th, 2009

Check out this lovely illustrated wedding invitation and suite! I just love the hand drawn feel and the personalized feeling it invokes. A friend of mine sent me a link to Anna Melcon Bond’s Flickr page (thanks Joseph!) and I instantly fell in love with her work.

I did a little poking around and discovered that this invitation was from Anna’s own wedding. I found some charming shots from her celebration that were too great to pass up. How great is that cake?!

Our Winter Wedding Part 4

Friday, February 13th, 2009

Besides the whole getting married thing, the invitations were my favorite part. As a designer I felt like I had something to prove by designing my own invitations so it turned out to be one of the most rewarding and intimidating aspects of the whole event. Needless to say, my husband and I love how they turned out and they were worth all the effort.

The Invitations, RSVP Card, Accommodations Card, Directions Card, Thank You Notes, and Envelopes were all letterpress printed on Crane’s 100% cotton Lettra Letterpress Paper by the very talented Bryce at Bjorn Press.

The Programs were off-set printed onto the same Lettra Letterpress paper by the lovely folks over at Quality Press using a metallic ink. I printed the Menus on a large format digital printer.

That’s it for our trip down memory lane! It was an amazing experience and I’m so glad I could share it with all of you. Have a lovely weekend everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day! xoxo



Our Winter Wedding Part 1

Wednesday, February 11th, 2009

With all the love that’s in the air, it’s fitting that my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary this past weekend. I honestly can’t believe it’s been a year already! We both had so much fun at our wedding and I wish that we could go back and enjoy the day over and over. Thankfully we have our photos and I can look back as often as I like. Please join me on a trip down memory lane…

To start, I thought I’d share my inspiration board that I created right after our engagement. It’s fun to see how this translated into the actual event. I picked yellow and grey as our wedding colors because I wanted something unusual and not overly feminine. My husband definitely appreciated this and was as equally excited about the color choices. Since our wedding was in February the yellow seemed like a good bright color that could add some warmth. The grey acted as a neutral tone throughout while silver added the little extra shine.
