catching up with the inbox

Vintage Wood Mailbox vintagevertigo
{ vintage wood mailbox from vintagevertigo }

hello all -- here are some highlights to get us caught up from my hiatus:

  • digby & iona's stump ring, with custom initials carved inside a heart. bonus reason for posting: the elaborate stop-motion video. strange.

  • evapaul invitations offers a new mini-rsvp as an eco- and budget-friendly option.

  • check out bittersweets NY's unusual wedding and bridal party jewelry. the twig line is more delicate/traditional... and then there's earthworms and vampire bites, and they're all still pretty.

  • quirky yet compelling bridesmaid dresses at quail. site is fresh, skirts are teeny, but you can have them custom-made. go michelle.

  • has a line of leather and suede clutches, great for winter weddings.

more as i get through the backlog -- thank you all for your patience!

wedding giveaway! microsoft office 2008 for the mac

I'm Yours by - 8 x 10 Archival Giclee Print
{ i'm yours archival giclee print by lovesugar }

yes, it's true! i'm getting married. if that don't beat all, as grandpa would say.

i promised a big giveaway today and am sorry if that implied i was going to reveal the story of my incredibly organized dream wedding, inspiration board, and plans, vendor by vendor. because... {nervous laugh}... that would imply i had some idea what i was doing. ha! hoo no. i mean a good old-fashioned giveaway: free stuff for you!

i've been holding onto this one from last year: i *finally* got my new mac, and finally tested this stuff out, and i can officially vouch that you *can* use microsoft office 2008 to make all kinds of DIY wedding goodies like save-the-dates and budgets and table cards and invites. not that mine are done. hoo no. but it's *possible.*

to celebrate, i'm giving it away!

to enter to win your very own copy of Office 2008 Home+Student Edition for the mac, along with some handy tips and how-tos on putting together DIY wedding essentials:
  1. comment with 3 great tips*, links, or resources for someone (like me) just engaged who (theoretically of course!) has no idea where to start.
  2. all creative entries* will be entered in a random drawing.
  3. bonus points for those who would actually *use* the software to DIY their wedding -- pls. include your wedding date.
  4. deadline: february 2.
please see the mac system requirements before entering. OSX v.10.4.9 or later.
and thank you, thank you for reading and for all your good wishes!

*if you've got more than 3 tips or links, bring it on, but please don't just put 1.) the knot 2.) martha 3.) your mom. that much has become clear.
