Well, first of all, I apologize for being the worst.blogger.ever. May has been an absolutely crazy month for me.. and I can't find time to do anything. We have a plan every single Saturday of this month, and basically the rest of the time during each week has been spent planning whatever the Saturday plan is. I have spent a small fortune this month on my fiance's graduation, Mother's Day, Derby, family coming in town to visit, 2 weddings and a bachelorette party and I haven't even began to think about our 5 year anniversary that is coming up this Friday! Well, enough of the pity party. I did something great today. I was browsing Etsy at work, and I found a seller called Swish Designs that makes custom monograms. Basically, you give her an idea of what you want, pick the colors and she emails you proofs and you can modify or select your monogram from there. For only $5, I got the exact monogram that I wanted. The seller, Donna, is such a sweetheart and goes way above and beyond what is needed. She is great to work with and really wants you to get what you want. The complete turn-around time from when I bought the monogram to when I had my finished product was less than 24 hours, and we emailed back and forth 6 or 7 times during that day. I am thrilled with my monogram. Here it is:
I know it is really simple, but that is exactly what we wanted. I want to use it on our favor labels, OOT gift bags and possibly napkins. I also found another Etsy seller, officialinitial, that makes you a custom rubber stamp in any size from your monogram. I think it would be really cute to stamp the back of our save the date envelopes with our monogram as well. I cannot recommend these 2 sellers enough! I am officially hooked, and my wedding is officially Etsyfied.
