Custom Tree Themed Save the Dates

Today's custom invitation work: a pretty tree themed save the date. "Save the Date" is carved into the front of the tree with the bride and groom's info on the back. Can be sent as a postcard or with an envelope, and comes with your choice of several cardstocks as well. For Kim & Ben we also designed their invitations and custom drink menus. Can be ordered in any number of colors to match your event!

A New Shop! Meet Bug & Bot

Over the past 7.5 years of owning Lasso'd Moon, I've found myself, on numerous birthdays and holidays, designing gifts for my three boys and their cousins (and sometimes friends at school).  Every year, we've bought numerous lego sets, only to have them end up dismantled for parts, bought video games that end up scratched, etc, etc. So when I finally found a source to make personalized gifts, I was pretty psyched. And now, I'm bringing that to you.

Bug & Bot, my new shop that's JUST for boys, has personalized lunch boxes (or use them for storing legos, video games, cards or whatever he finds sacred), puzzles, stickers and more. Check it out at

Here's a peek at one of our puzzles:

Shopping for Custom Wedding Invitations

It may seem early to start thinking about your wedding invitations for your 2013 wedding, but it's actually the PERFECT time. Custom invitations, in the height of wedding season, can take anywhere from 4-8 weeks to produce, depending on the quantity and complexity of your order. By starting the process now, you can save yourself stress by getting the majority of your design work done now and then filling in the final details when you have them.

For May-July weddings, now is the right time to send your save the dates. Order now in our Wedding Invites Etsy shop, or contact us for a custom photo card design.

Don't forget- invitations being sent out in January will need extra postage due to the yearly postage increase.

Mary came to me looking for a peacock wedding invitation in brilliant purples and blues. So we
came up with this z-fold invitation with a silky bright blue band and a pair of vintage-graphic peacocks to grace the top of the invitation.

Wedding Invitation Descriptionary

On the heels of releasing our invite wording post- this is one I've been working on for a while. I forget, sometimes, that new brides see all of these invitation ideas and often have no idea what I'm talking about when I start throwing out terms like pocket folds, layered, etc. So I made this infographic with the most popular styles I work with to illustrate what's what.
