New website for Event Team Entertainment!

The fabulous guys over at Event Team Entertainment have a new website! My husband and I hired Shawn Whittemore as our entertainment director in 2006 for our wedding, and it one of the BEST choices we've ever made. Notice how I didn't call him a DJ? That's because that title doesn't do him justice. What exactly do you call a person who spends hours on end with you via phone, emails and meetings making sure the important details of your wedding are planned out and perfect? Someone who directs the flow of the evening while not stealing the spotlight from the bride & groom? A person who is out in the crowd at your reception, interacting with guests making sure they have everything they need and are having fun? And what the heck do you call a man who escorts the groom's grandmother to her seat when she needs a hand?!! Besides TOTALY AWESOME, I guess entertainment director is the next best title. It makes me so happy to see so many other couples singing his praises and to see his business grow. You must hire him, and that's final.

Check out Event Team Entertainment's new website and all the fun videos and pictures on there! You might see a few familiar faces ;)

Custom Business Cards

A friend of mine who is job searching asked if I would design business cards for her to pass out as she's networking. Of course I jumped at the chance! She has great style and I knew would want something clean & classy. She loves red and damask prints, so this is what we came up with:
There will be a spot gloss over the floral graphic on the front, as well as over her name on the back. I can't wait to see how the printed piece looks!

A Baby Shower invitation

I love love LOVE working with engaged couples. I get to be part of such an important event in their lives, and it makes me so happy! I really love getting to know the people, too, and I'm always a bit sad after the final pieces have been delivered and my work is done. So I love it when clients come back to me for other things! Erin & Kevin were married in January, and while on their honeymoon, Erin's mom emailed me to ask if I could design baby shower invitations for her MOH. I was thrilled! Not only did I get to work with great people again, but it was for a baby shower {you know I love babies!}. I showed several designs and they ended up choosing this one:
Here are a few others that I really liked:
