Now that I’ve got my basic product line put together for the summer (check it out at anawerks.etsy.com), I’m starting to think about a wedding line. Yes, some of this is self – serving, and yes, I do have seven weddings to send presents to. Hopefully I can make this a win – win.
I don’t really want to get sucked into the land of making thousands of hand cut invitations, so I’m trying to come up with a set of good wedding gifts, some wedding cards, and maybe a few items for the day itself. It’s sort of odd to be plunged back into the land of wedding prep after your own wedding is done, I have to say.
Wedding cards come first (I have seven to give out this summer, after all). I was working on these designs surrounding words of love, but two drafts later, I finally got that there was way too much detail for something so small. And the doodle I did in between drafts turned out better than anything else from the day.
Wedding gifts are next on the list (see above, re: seven weddings). I made my own sign (that never ended up being used) with our names and the date, which turned out quite well. I’m thinking of re – working that so that it could stand alone as a framed piece, maybe adding some border work or something.
So, folks – what are you working on today?
