snapshots III & custom place cards

i know you're thinking, "shorty, where have you been?!"

ok, maybe that's NOT what you're thinking, but i am feeling like i haven't been frequenting this space enough and want to be spending more time around here. so before i send off for a long weekend, i want to provide a thursday snapshot!

making: custom placecards (see below)
drinking: chocolate green superfood (omg delicious!)
reading: still life with woodpecker by tom robbins
listening: once soundtrack, it has evolved again
wearing: new seven straight cropped jeans

now my main reason for the post was to share pics of the placecards i've been working on. a dear friend of mine is gifting them to her friends--fabulous twins who are turning 26! their birthday party will be at FIG in Charleston, SC, and as a special gift to their guests, they will send them off with a hand written note inside these beauties! i always have a listing up on etsy for custom placecards---click here for more info. i design & assemble & scribe them myself, and always have a custom card for the guest of honor, in this case, Laura & Victoria. hope you enjoy this pics of the finished product!

very special blossoming placecards for the bday girls!

(side view) these are tent-style placecards with a fabric/french dictionary/honey yellow cardstock flower mounted onto them with a mixed metal brad to hold it all together! the fabric came from a fantastic etsy seller, spice berry cottage

the soldiers, all lined up! (and looking very swanky!)

boys like flowers, too, right?

closeup of the guest of honor card! (sorry for the semi-blurry pic)

well i'm off to get this day started. much love & blossoming! xoxox
