New start. New sh*t. (FREE Printables!)

It seems that every time I watch a movie and someone leaves their job, they pack up a box and always have a plant sticking out of it. I have no idea how realistic this is but someone VERY special in my life closed one door on a job last week and opened one very refreshing door to another job today... I figured she needed something nice to uplift her new bare desk! It just so happens to be the day before Valentine's Day so of course everything had to be pink :)

This New Start, New Sh*t box I feel can be used for any occasion big or small but just an effort to show someone that you are there for them every step of the way!

So as you may know, the Target $1 - $5 aisle is Heaven sent! Many of these cute stationery items were found there and the travel mug! The stationery set and plant I found as I wandered through Target as well... you can never leave there empty handed!

I will find any excuse to wander into Paper Source & these Donut Notes "DoughNotes" by Chronicle Books, designed by Hannah Berman were so worth the trip! They even come with a wax envelope to seal the sweetness and can be mailed with their super cute address labels. Such a cool way to pass a note to your coworkers!

One of my favorite artists and stationery designers, Emily McDowell, created this amazing book "There is no good card for this: What to say and do when life is scary, awful, and unfair to people you love" and let me tell you this book is AMAZING! I think this was the perfect way to show my loved one that I'm here for her...and this will actually be the 3rd Year in a row that I used one of her awesome cards for my own Valentine (now fiancΓ©, ahhhh!)

mark your calenders! the etiquette to save the dates.

Β 

Local church, hometown, sunny beach, Italy? Your wedding location has been set, date is locked & now it's time to let your loved ones know when it's time to celebrate! If time allows, Save the Dates are an important key to giving your guests a heads up on your upcoming beautiful day of wedding bliss.

When should Save the Dates go out? 

  • Generally 7-13 months before your big day, if you are having a destination wedding sometimes up to a year prior is best to allow your guests proper time for passports and savings.

Who do I send a Save the Date to?

  • No Indian-giving here, make sure you send a Save the Date to those who you know for sure you want to attend the wedding. Even if you know there is a chance they may not be able to attend still send anyways! This list should also include your wedding party and those who are in the wedding. Sometimes it's best to order a little extra just in case!

What information should be included on the the Save the Date? 

  • Include: Your names, Wedding Date, Location, Wedding Website (if this applies) & Invitation to follow
  • Do not include: Venue name, Ceremony time, Registry details

Do the Save the Dates need to match the invitations? 

  • The Save the Dates set the tone for your wedding, this is where you can be more creative and informal. Cards, magnets, luggage tags... there are so many ways to print and send out your save the dates to leave an impression on your guests. Photo Save the Dates are also very popular as well, a great excuse to have a photo shoot with your and your soon-to-be husband or wife!

What happens if the information changes after the save the dates go out? 

  • It is rare this will happen but the best way is to contact your guests via phone, this way you will know for sure who you spoke with and gave the correct information to. Websites are great for updates but not everyone is web-savvy or will remember to frequently check your website.
