Secondly well just working full time and trying to be social and have a life, but thirdly an opportunity has presented itself which I could not ignore or let pass me by. I was looking for bridesmaid dresses and found a company I loved the designs of, searched for stockists and found a lovely bridal shop that stocked them - Bea's Bridal in Southam, Warwickshire! The shop is owned by the lovely Hannah, her assistant manager Ria is also very friendly and helpful, a must visit if you are getting married as they offer gorgeous dresses, cakes, vintage china hire, the list goes on, take a look at the site or visit the shop, it is very pretty, a real treat! Well I got chatting, those that no me know I'm good at this!! Got on to the subject of me being crafty and making invitations etc, next thing Hannah asks if I would like to put some samples in the shop!!! Beyond excited!!! They are starting a wedding planning side of the business and are looking to offer everything for the bride to be. Hannah took a look at my blog and then emailed me about it and now I'm making samples! I also went to a vintage weding fair in Birmingham and seeing all the talented ladies with their lovely goodies on display has spurred me on and I've now got business cards, a Whimsical Wishes Facebook page and an Etsy shop!! Not forgetting my little old blog here. So lots of wedding yumminess coming to my sites/pages very soon.
I've been wanting to get a little crafty business going for some time and have done bits and pieces but something about planning our wedding has brought about more inspiration and motivation, so I'm going to throw myself into it once and for all. I plan to offer bespoke greetings cards, keepsakes, wedding stationery, favours and decor, in vintage, elegant and contemporary designs. Please visit my facebook page if you have time too.
So for now I'll leave you with a few of the wedding samples I have done so far, many, many more to come!! Don't worry though I will still be doing general cards and projects too. Phot's taken in Bea's Bridal.
Thank you for stopping by, let me know you did so I can visit you in return.
