Thoughtful Day!!!





I am overjoyed to finally announce my new wedding invitation business, Thoughtful Day! As many of you know, I have been working on this for many months now and am so happy and excited to finally share it with all of you! Since last summer I have been designing the website, Melodie Collection and doing some custom work. The design and function of the website took quite a bit of time, especially with the Melodie Collection; trying to make the shopping experience as user friendly as possible! And I hope you agree!

The Melodie Collection is a set of four themed wedding collections that allow you to mix or match your wedding invitations. The option is completely up to you and allows you to come up with a unique and custom collection as well as pricing that fits within your budget! In addition to the three colorways, custom colors are available too.

SO many people were of huge help to me in this process. First and foremost my amazing web developer Will from screenminded was a rock star in making everything happen! Seriously, if any of you are ever looking for an amazing web programmer, he is your guy! I know from my experience, web programmers (good and reliable ones!) are hard to come by so reach out to him if you need a website programmed! He is amazing!!!!

And of course so many of my friends were so helpful in giving me feedback throughout my entire design process (thanks Patrick, Vané, Jenna, Jeff, Christine, Lindsey!). It is so crucial to get feedback from creative friends when you are working solo.

And a HUGE thanks to the many blogs that have been picking up my work over the last couple of days!

I am back to blogging next week, and I can't wait!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
