why wedding stationery isn't just invitations

Why wedding stationery isn't just invitations .

Growing up I was always far ahead of my time in my thoughts and manners, while most teenagers were idolizing Britney Spears I was planing dinner parties and reading Martha Stewart magazines . While doing so I learned a lot of proper etiquette about gifts, weddings and thank you's . The one common thing that still stands today is no email will ever have the same effect as sending a hand written thank you note or letter on beautiful paper.

While planning your wedding It's easy to forget all the little things that your friends and family do and help with along the way. From your brides maids helping you put together favors till 2 am over a few bottles of wine or your parents picking up the tab on a few more things than you had planned on.
When its all said and done and your special day is over the best way to show your appreciation is to send personal thank you's to everyone who helped.
Sure it may take some extra time but its worth every minute to show you care.

For the little things, I recommend a little thank you card with just a few words expressing your gratitude.
For your friends and family who did more than you can imagine or even just wanting to tell your maid of honor how much she means to your. Sending a letter on beautiful paper is the perfect way to impress and show your love.

Lastly the most important person on your big day the one you love and the one your marrying. How sweet would it be to send them a love note on the morning of your big day . Write to them telling them how excited you are or how much you love them and have it sent over to them before you see each other. Its a sweet little gesture that's often over looked but can have a big impact.

I hope you took something from this article and don't forget everyone along the way!

Halloween stationery box has arrived!

Since I started Fancy Paperie , I've been toying with the thought of doing a subscription stationery box. There are a few good ones on the market right now but there is always room for another. I decided instead of jumping right in I decided to do Holiday boxes and since my favorite holiday is coming up Halloween I was all to excited to start on this one. I didn't want to make it all about my items and asked to fellow talented stationery designers to contribute to the first box. I am so excited to share with you the Halloween box.

 My inspiration for the Halloween was to go in a vintage direction with an antique meets modern collection of paper.

Now whats inside the box! I've seen some great stationery boxes and some ones that are just filled with $1 bin items. I wanted to make sure these were filled with high quality beautiful stationery and still an affordable price.
For $25 plus a flat rate shipping your parcel of 6 full sized Halloween goodies comes with a letter set, cards,notepad,postcards and a surprise item. Also the first 3 orders get an extra item so that makes 7 items. These are limited numbers as of now there are 9 boxes left once they are gone , there are no more so pick one up  here today!

I'm a long time snail mail lover so I made sure every item in this box can be used for Halloween inspired mail!

Floral print ,dinosaurs, and mermaids oh my!

The other night at a time I'd rather not admit being up at lol , I discovered a website called Society6 . It is a fantastic concept you can upload and sell your designs on a multitude of items without having to order and stock everything yourself. As soon as I saw they made all over printed t shirts . I had to jump on the band wagon and expand my shops designs.

The first design was a dinner party brain storm idea I had a with friends a few weeks back , side note I will make this into wallpaper one day!  I mean dinosaurs and floral print be still my strange little heart what more could I want. So I made it come to life .Here are my favorites with this design.

Next up was to expand on my favorite kitschy mermaid design and let me tell you its even cuter in fabric form!

Is it wrong that i want to buy all the things in my own shop lol

YSL new favorite mascara review

First off let me just say this past year I became a huge fan of YSL makeup products. I was already a huge fan of their babydoll mascara and then I got accepted for the YSL voxbox and I was super excited to try their other mascara If you know me , you know I'm always wearing fake lashes its a habit i picked up years ago and it's so hard to quit. I feel naked without them on lol.  On occasion when running to the store quickly I will just wear mascara and no falsies so when I do i need a majorly amazing mascara to make me feel like I still have lashes.

 Here is a photo with my usual falsies i wear for reference .

This is now with just the YSL volume effect faux clis 
Now for just mascara this is amazing my lashes are usually non existent.
The babydoll mascara does a great job lengthening but the faux clis adds thickness and length which is even better. Ignore the weird things my eyes are doing its hard to get a good photo of the mascara with my lighting lol
I highly recommend this mascara and pretty much any eye product from YSL . I have yet to try the others but I'm looking forward to trying their face and lip products!

I was given this mascara for free to try but all opinions are my own.
