My apologies for not keeping the avid Sweet Paper readers updated on last weeks top five fabulous happenings. Hopefully all can be forgiven. Â Here is a quick peek at the past week.
We had an opportunity Â to work with a great non-profit organization on invitations for their “friendraiser” event. The Any Body Can Youth Foundation is a one of a kind group whose vision is to “provide a complete after school program in a safe, inviting environment for children in underserved areas.” Â Their facility includes an area to study as well as a boxing gym where youth receive lessons from world class instructors. We hope their event is a huge success!
Tuesday is my day off, and I promise you all the good stuff happens on Tuesday while I’m away. This week was no exception. Â Amber, the owner and founder of Biscuit, brought in some samples of her delicious biscotti, which let me tell you is to die for. I would describe to you in a Gordon Ramsay fashion how delicious my favorite one is, but I can’t decide on which one is best, and I suggest you try them for yourself!
I don’t know why craft day at Sweet Paper always seems to land on a Wednesday, but I’m not complaining about it. It’s the perfect activity to get through the mid-week blues. We were so excited to design wedding stationery for a photo shoot for Couture Events. While we won’t reveal all the mock-wedding magic, we will give you a sneak peek of the escort cards that were used. Looking forward to sharing all the great photos and the rest of the stationery collection!
I am always looking for last minute gifts, which means I’m also in the need for last minute wrap. Lucky for me, the great minds over at The Great LakesÂ have put together this gift wrap set complete with screen printed paper, twine and even a gift tag! This would be a great emergency kit to keep in my car for all of those last minute wrapping emergencies… you never know when one might hit.
I know that not everybody is ready for Christmas seeing as it isn’t even September, I however, am not one of those people. Â We got another early shipment to prepare for the holiday, containing nothing but Kate Spade holiday cards. Â I wouldn’t dare risk being moved to the naughty list, so I will share one with you. (Sorry! Only one. I can’t ruin the WHOLE surprise!!) Pink and red foil, but of course!
