Announcing: Scribbles Shoppe!
I have launched an Etsy shop! This is something I've wanted to do for quite some time, but I didn't anticipate happing for a year or so. With the support of friends and family, I finally buckled down and did it!
As you can see, I'm selling customizable wedding invitations. I've so enjoyed being able to provide friends and family with stylish invitations while saving them a lot of money by helping them DIY their invites. With Scribbles Shoppe, I create a design, brides customize it by choosing their text, fonts and colors, and I send them a PDF and image file for them to print or take to a local printer. It's a growing trend for wedding invitations, especially for budget conscious brides, since it allows them to have a great design at a fraction of the cost of buying them from a traditional invitation supplier. Here's a few of my favorites:
I'm hoping to add response cards, menus, programs, and shower invites eventually, and I have so many more ideas for invitation designs. I've got to remind myself constantly to slow down and take it one step at a time.
As far as how this shop will affect the blog, there won't be much change. I'll still post about all the same things as usual, with the addition of occasional shop updates, like when I launch a new collection. I'd also love to receive pictures from the brides who use my invites, so I can see how they tie in with their wedding. I'll ask them to send me pictures of their invites or their wedding, and if they do, I'll feature them on the blog. Maybe I'll do some more wedding DIY tutorials too, like this wedding photo booth.
I'd love it if you took a look around and let me know what you think! If you see something you like, it would be greatly appreciated if you'd click that little pink heart to favorite it :) Also, if you have an Etsy account, I'd love to add you to my circle!
So, this is announcement number one. Announcement number two is coming later this week, so stay tuned!
