My Kind of Town...



Chicago is on my mind this weekend...
Not because I am trying to get tickets to Oprah. Or because my teenage daughter thinks the University of Chicago is her kind of school (she'll be a high school junior this year-the search for the right college is on). Or because I have ever visited the Windy City (unfortunately, I have not). I haven't developed a sudden obsession with the Cubs...or da Bears...or the Bulls...


It's because I am am working on a couple of very fun projects for two different Chicago brides. First up...escort cards and table markers with an unmistakable Chicago flair (even I can guess that Wrigleyville just might be in Chicago).

I am so loving this project!
Juliette came to me with an idea and a collection of old Chicago post cards. Each of these tags will have a guest's name on the opposite side. Instead of the traditional number system, we are using Chicago neighborhoods to identify each table.

How creative! I am so glad she came to me with this project...


Next up is a re-do of sorts. Round one of Mary's "sweet" favor cones got sucked in to the black hole of the USPS, never to be seen again. I didn't get photos taken the first time around and I was kicking myself for that. So this time around, I wanted to make sure I didn't make the same mistake again.

Chicago -bound with tomorrow's mail and destined to be filled with sweet treats for her guests, fingers crossed that this batch gets to Mary safe and sound....

Here's hoping your weekend has been filled with sweet treats as well!

Until Next Time,

Love the wedding goodies.
And good luck on those Oprah tickets. I never manage to snag any either since we moved here. The baby's eye doctor is near her studio (she's in the medical district) so I did manage some pictures once.
Apparently, they are filming Transformers 3 in Chicago this week and they were blowing up cars Sunday on Michigan Avenue. Exciting place :O)

Hi, Steph! So sorry to hear a whole batch of goodies disappeared! How frustrating! But, I'm glad you took photos of the second set to share them with us. They are beautiful! :-)

I love the music on your site. I was surprised and couldn't find where it was coming from. What a great site. Very nice.
