7 In this week in review

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday! This week I’ve been mostly designing, packing and shipping orders and watching the Olympics. Tonight I’m going to a bbq and then having a game night with friends on Saturday. What’s everyone up to this weekend??

Here are some fun links/events/notes of interest that happened this week:

1) I got this in the mail yesterday!

west elm invitation

I love West Elm. I think half of my house is decorated in West Elm. Unfortunately, there isn’t one in the Raleigh/Durham area until now! I actually saw signs for it at SouthPoint mall a few months ago that it was coming late summer. I think I literally jumped up and down in excitement when I saw the sign. My husband thought I was crazy lol

Then I got this invitation in the mail yesterday for an event they’re having for their opening night, which includes food, beer and 10% off. I will definitely be there. And I haven’t even mentioned how awesome this invitation is. It’s printed on 100% sustainable wood and how cute are the illustrations. Since I got it, I’ve been trying to find this wood stock(?) because how awesome would they be for a wedding invitation??

2) Tuesday night I watched the U.S. Women’s Gymnastics team take gold. They were amazing! They are just extraordinary women and all of that hard work, discipline and focus will be able to carry them through the rest of their lives in whatever they choose to do. Congrats!!!

3) I’ve gotta give a shout out to two amazing wedding blogs for featuring my invitations this week. On Tuesday Wedding Lovely featured my chalkboard feather wedding invitations and then on Thursday Emmaline Bride featured my new geometric wedding invitation suite. Many thanks to both blogs and the lovely ladies that run them!!

I hope everyone had a good week and has an awesome weekend!

      Hi Ashley! Thanks for letting me know! Night Owl has some beautiful designs. I think my current supplier actually has the wood for printing on so I’m gonna order some and try it out.

      Thanks for stopping by!
