...Still Here & Still Writing...

Hi friends!
Just so you know I'm still here and still addressing 100s of envelopes for my lovely clients. Business has been so good {thank you!} that I have had to put this blog on the back burner. I thought I would stop in and share some pictures of my recent work. Should you or someone you know need a little calligraphy in your life {upcoming wedding, baby shower, etc} please reach out to me via e-mail {pennedandpretty@gmail.com} or check out my etsy shop {here}!

These certainly are not all of the envelope orders that I've completed over the past few months but they represent a good little sample! If you need me you can find me with a sharpie at my desk! Send pickles & wine {my two favorite things}! xo

p.s. Pictures are from my iphone & I apologize for the poor quality! It's the thought that counts!

...Turquoise Invitations...

Turquoise has always been one of my favorite colors. Loving this little Etsy shop that I found offering this invitation drenched in turquoise! Perfect for an upcoming fall wedding if paired with that kraft envelope.

The invitation suite below has just a smidge of turquoise but incorporates a paisley pattern as well as complementary colors of gray and mango. Couldn't get much better.

...Calligraphy in Mocha Ink on White Envelopes...

There are a lot of brides within the last month or so that have contacted me asking if I have time to squeeze their order in since they were supposed to send out their invitations out last week. It always brings a smile to my face because I remember, when I was planning our wedding, how fast all of those "wedding deadlines" crept up & before I knew it I was walking down the aisle! I always try to accommodate last minute requests & get them out the door quickly. I'm blaming that as the reason why I only took a picture of one envelope for this order!
Don't forget that you should send out your invitations about two months before your wedding. If using a calligrapher, plan on providing your envelopes to them at least two weeks ahead of when you will send out your invites. Happy planning!

...White Ink and Plum Envelopes...

I love a good plum invitation envelope! Which, if you couldn't tell from the poor iphone quality picture, is what these were. A plum envelope always looks fantastic with a white, gold or silver ink and these were no exception {white ink, pretty adorable font}.

Things have really gotten busy here at Penned & Pretty in the last month {especially with opening up my etsy shop!}but I am determined to start taking more/better pictures of the orders that I complete and get them up on the blog! Hold me to it!

...So Cal Smitten & Natural Beauty Invitations...

I haven't written a feature on an invitation suite that I love in quite a while. I saw these invitations by yours is the earth over on green wedding shoes the other day and they are certainly worthy of sharing with you.

 If you love succulents, plants or are getting married in the southwest these invitations should be right up your alley! Aren't they adorable? There's a lot more where that came from in this write up from green wedding shoes and of course at the yours is the earth website.
