spring is on it's way

we had some beautiful warm afternoons (followed by some crazy wintery snowy squalls in the evenings) this past weekend...but that sun shining sure had me excited for the arrival of spring just around the corner!

and with spring comes easter and graduation!!

having pictures of your little ones (or your pets) taken with the easter bunny?  let's design a greeting to send to your family and friends that will showcase it and wish everyone a blessed easter season.

it's also never too early to start designing your graduation party invitations.  there are only so many weekends in a summer following graduation and before everyone heads back to school and off to college.  why not get your graduation party invite designed now and ready to roll so your friends get your invite first and can't say no to coming to the best party ever because they've already rsvp'd for someone else's party who got their invites out sooner?!  we can have everything laid out and just wait to plug in your senior picture once you get it back from the photographer.

you can contact me at christy@bridestobooties.com to discuss your easter or graduation greetings or visit my website to view samples of previous graduation party invites.

calling all realtors

you know as well as i do that the best clients are those that come from past clients. word of mouth referrals are our best source of business in many cases!

and like me, i'm sure you are always looking for more fun and unique ways to "get the word out".

so how special would it be to give your clients a set of custom "we've moved" cards, complete with a photo of them, their sold sign in front of their new home and their new address to send to their family and friends, compliments of you, their trust-worthy realtor? oh, and did i mention that there would be a space on the back of the card for your contact information?

you give them a set to hand over with their keys, and i'll throw in a coupon for a discount off additional quantities if they want more!

interested? you know you are!! contact me at christy@bridestobooties.com, or message me through my website or facebook, and let's get working on creating a template just for you and your clients!

it's happening people

the first month of 2013 is almost to an end and boy am i excited about the new year and what it means for brides to booties!  the month of january had me designing for two 1st birthday invites, invites for a baby shower with coordinating onesie stickers, 3 more orders for onesie stickers, an order for 25th anniversary invites, save the dates and down the road the wedding invites and upcoming birth announcements and bridal shower favors.  my downtime after the kiddies go to bed have been uber-busy (all the while dealing with numerous illnesses by all members of my family), but i am NOT complaining.   in fact...i'm ready to tackle more.  which leads me to my next announcement...

the brides to booties etsy shop is officially open!  it only took me 2ish...ok, more like 3 years, but it's open and filled to the brim with monthly onesie stickers to start.  more items will be added down the road, but these are a good thing for me to start with.  i'm happily busy with custom orders for invites and announcements, etc. through word of mouth, so i'm going to ease into the etsy thing with the onesie stickers.

there is an option in the etsy shop to request a custom listing if you are interested in something that you don't see (a new onesie sticker style, customize an existing one with a name, or even invites or announcements).  i will still continue to take requests and orders through my contact page on my website, through messages on facebook and through my email, christy@bridestobooties.com.

so spread the word and make my shop one of your favorites!

thanks again to each and every one of you that have supported me over the past few years as i've grown my business and thanks for the referrals to my facebook page (keep them coming, please and thank you).

owl themed baby girl shower invite

i was asked to design a sweet baby shower invite that coordinated with the owl and flower theme the hostess was going with.  i am very happy with how it turned out and the invites and coordinating onesie stickers are being delivered to her this weekend!  i can't wait for her to see everything in person!

this design can be used for the announcement, thank you and onesie sticker "bundles of joy" packages too if interested!
