This weekend I participated in my first ever bridal show.  I was pretty nervous about it and had no idea what to expect, but it turned out to be pretty awesome.  I was really impressed with the quality of the other vendors and the overall presentation and thought of the organizers.  I spoke with a lot of brides and met some incredibly talented vendors, whom I will be posting about this week. And I'm so thankful that my friend Marni sat with me for the whole event, greeting brides and handing out business cards!

I have no idea if this will directly lead to any new clients, but it was really the push I needed to put together my 2010 line of invitation, which have now been designed, printed, photographed, and packaged! I'm hoping this officially ends the last several weeks of 3am bedtimes and Mountain Dew sustained days.



In other happy news, my best friend since 7th grade had her first baby this weekend!!!  They had been keeping the sex a surprise and found out that they had a little girl.  The pictures are adorable and I can't wait to meet Daniela this weekend!  Now I'm kicking myself that I didn't buy one of the beautiful vintage gowns I have seen over the past few weeks while searching for milkglass. Belle Heir might do the trick, though :)
