New Invitation Themes | Unicorns + Donuts!

I mentioned in my last post that I'm working on updating my shop and expanding my offering, so I thought I'd stop in with an update and show off a bit. Below are my latest party invitation designs. Do you love them?  I mean, Unicorns + Donuts... they're not exactly related, but they are both totally magical!

If you're as excited by unicorns as my almost 5 year old and I (and, apparently much of the party community), you should stop by Honest to Nod today and check out my latest Party On board too. Just trust.

As you can see in the images here, I'm now offering a printable background pattern design that can be used to coordinate with each invitation and theme. I haven't completed patterns for all of the existing listings yet, but will be designing them by request for customers who want them. And better still, I've put together a printable party package at a discounted rate so it's now simple to buy items to coordinate with your theme. About time, I know!  Anything else you'd like to see added to the shop?

On Getting a Facelift


Hey friends! It's been a while since I've done a personal check in here.  Did you notice I got a little facelift over the weekend?  No, not literally - I thought it would be fun to tease you with the header. I've updated my site design + branding. 

I've been feeling overdue for a site refresh for months, especially because things weren't loading the way they were supposed to and seemed clunky.  So I did what I generally do... which was to play around with new ideas and then start second guessing myself before actually accomplishing anything.

I wanted to revamp my etsy shop at the same time and refresh a number of my invite designs, but I just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Fast forward to last week on my birthday, which tends to be a reflective day for me.  I decided that instead of continuing to stress myself out for not doing things the proper way, I'd push ahead and put out the new look before I make any more excuses not to.  Anyway, it's not a major overhaul. Just a bit of a refresh with a more clean and modern feel.  I'll also be updating my social media buttons this week. And yes, there's plenty left to be done, but we'll just call the rest Phase 2.

I find it's so hard to evaluate my own work, so I hope you're all pleased with the result and enjoy easier use of the site.  Can you spot the changes? 

Fun fact... I've been blogging off and on for 6 years last week.  I'm happy with the decision I made a few years ago to keep this a part time gig instead of a growing business, but wow it's fun to look back at all the projects I've worked on. 6 years tends to add up. If you haven't been around here that long, I'm inviting you to check out my updated about and portfolio pages to learn more about me and my style. And if you have a moment, please drop a note to say hello and tell me what you think of the new look.

PS... That picture! I snapped it this weekend during some pre-easter silliness in our yard. Looks like Caitlin got herself a little facelift too.
