ellyB Couples: Sheila Mari Designs

I believe what I am most thankful for is that I have clients that are multi faceted. Everything from lawyers, to doctors to very talented graphic designers.  I wanted to take some time to introduce my wonderful bride Sheila and her company Sheila Mari Designs. She has an amazing collection on Etsy and does everything from weddings, to birthday parties.  I love her 2011 calendar, perfect for your desk!

You are invited to the Paper Carnival!

If you know me you know that I love all things papers. From the colors to the texture I enjoy thumbing through paper swatch decks. I guess the main reason why I love it so much is that the possibilities are endless!

I was so excited when my previous bride and industry peer Jessica over at Invitations and Beyond hipped me to the Paper Carnival! Wondering what the Paper Carnival is?  Here is additional information from Cathe of Feterie Stationery:

For the next couple of weeks, every day (well, except the weekends and the upcoming extended 4th of July weekend) we’re participating in a Paper Carnival — where you can discover fabulous paper, embellishments, envelopes, and more from some equally fabulous fellow stationers. As I havetweeted many times, we stationers don’t skimp on quality and we’re sharing surplus supplies with you!

Here is how you can follow the carnival as it travels and the first stop is this very blog post to kick off the event! Discover what new supply item we have in our SupplyMe shop on Etsy and a fellow carnie’s supply shop by visiting their shop. Then every day, you can follow the carnival by visiting a new supply shop from the previous carnival blog or Facebook post.

So, if you are a scrapbooker, cardmaking enthusiast, or just a paper lover you’re going to want to check all the supply shops posting their paper goodness! And if you’ve just joined the carnival in the middle of it’s journey, you can always check the Paper Carnival page on Facebook to catch up! And now… for a glimpse of the paper goodies in our supply shop!

Etsy Finds: Whimsical Chandeliers

This weekend I took some time to visit my lovely Etsy site. Etsy is always a great source of inspiration when dreaming up magical events.  Etsy also serves as a resource of one of a kind items and with personalization.  Chandeliers always makes an event fun and chic. Today we are featuring the work of Whimsical Collections from Five Arm Chandelier

Here is why they are so perfect, they work as your wow piece. There is nothing wrong with getting one over the top piece and keeping everything else simple. It is a great way to have a bold look without overdoing it.

Don’t forget to recycle! Use it for your event then take it home to add to your nursery or office.

My Favorite Keep Calm and Carry On Items

Everyone has a day that they just need too – Keep Calm And Carry On!  Any item with this calming saying will make a perfect gift for a bridesmaid, sweetheart or anyone that just may need the saying on a rainy day.  Here are my favorite things bearing the favorite selling!

Seller: Theme Fragrance

Seller: Jennys Bakeshop

Seller: Jael Studios

Seller: LeastLikely2Breed

Seller: HomeStudio

Well Wishes Alternative – Vintage Luggage

While browsing my lovely Etsy I came across this image of a vintage luggage.  The seller took a vintage luggage and lined it with magazine clippings from that era.

How amazing would it be if you did the same thing! Get any kind of hard cased luggage and line the lining with any of the following:

  • Love letters between you and your fiancé
  • Pictures from your dates or travels
  • Scrapbook items that you have gathered throughout your planning process
  • Little words that remind you of each other

The list goes on and on! Whatever you decide make it about you and your sweetie.  Have it displayed on your sign in table and have your guests drop in little notes of well wishes to the couple.  The key here is to not read it right away and possibly lock it up and do not read it until you first anniversary. The best part is that the luggage is now a time capsule for all the great things ahead.

If you are not feeling that crafty I am sure seller Peace Traveler would love to help.

Etsy Find – Wedding Genealogy

Today we bring you a great Etsy find – Wedding genealogy.  Elana Dweck owner of Mélangerie Inc. sent us over some additional information on what Wedding Genealogy is and whey you need one!

Wedding genealogies are customized charts, similar to a family tree, that detail the relationships of the bride and groom to all of their wedding guests. Great for a cocktail hour or reception, these charts fill guests in on who’s a friend from childhood, a neighbor, a family member, and more. Couples can customize the chart best suited to the style and environment of their wedding, and keep the diagram afterwards as a unique piece of memorabilia.

What are your thoughts? Is this a keepsake you would like after the wedding is over? How would you incorporate it in your home?

Did you know you can order cupcakes from Etsy?

Yeah we had no idea either. thecupcakemint offers a variety of vegan cupcake options. All made fresh to order.

Who doesn’t love cupcakes? You can use them as favors, table decor and just statement pieces on pretty cake stands or clear lucite boxes. Also great for any holiday, wedding, birthday party, or just a gift to someone for being awesome! Here are some pictures of the yummy goodness.
