DIY Invite Hankies: SDBride

I’ve always been smitten by all the tea towel and handkerchief invitation gorgeousness you see around blog-land. So it comes as no surprise that this fantastic set of DIY hanky invites from Tulle and Feathers (meant “to look like vintage love letters packaged up from anthro) gets a MAJOR dogear in my book.

Would you believe me if I told you that these were printed on fabric using freezer paper?!

Oh YES. Definitely a labor of love and the end result is nothing short of AWESOME.

Thank You + A Font

First off, thank you all for your lovely comments (and emails) to my last post.  They are truly and deeply appreciated.

And now to kick off and ease myself back into blogging, I present this fun/playful new Kushtie font by Morice Kauston, discovered via Behance. I think it’s those squiggly watchamacallits (…ligatures? glyphs?) that charmed me in a good ol’e Blueprint Mag typeface kind of way.  You can donate to use/download this font over at DaFont. Enjoy!

Hello Again.

Sorry I’ve been MIA!

Yeah, I know. I’ve been a bad blogger.

My life has been a little (okay A LOT) hectic lately.  There’s been so much going on… so many happy things :)

baby

Yup, that’s right. We have a li’l bun coming this Summer! This is our first and needless to say, we’re over the moon!

To those of you who’ve been wondering where I am, fear not! I’ve not fallen off the face of the earth :)  Thank you so much for your care and concern. You guys are the sweetest!  The amount of wonderful comments and emails I’ve received has been astounding and meant so much to me.  You have all been amazing.

I feel soooo guilty for disappearing but I really had to take a little blogging break because the internetz is not necessarily your friend when you’re pregnant, hormonal, and are facing overwhelming (at times, a bit scary) stuff. I’m 16 weeks along and I’m so glad the first trimester is now behind me.  It wasn’t a pleasant one for me.  24 more weeks to go, folks. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

OK so this is my official welcome back post. I look forward to starting again soon!
