As we wind down the holidays and get ready to say hello to 2012, we thought we’d take a little walk down memory lane with some of the accomplishments we’re most proud of this year.
Wow did we kick up the blogging this year! 2011 was the year of the regular blog posts- we finally hit our stride thanks to a couple of weekly series: Thursday Tips and Font Friday. We can’t say enough about the amazing, type loving kindred spirits we’ve found in the Font Friday ladies, and Lauren from Every Last Detail’s great idea for Thursday Tips was an awesome motivator for us to start sharing stationery advice (check out some of our other archives too: colorboards and inspiration, in progress posts, and real weddings). We’re so grateful for everyone who takes the time to read, and for every single comment.

Speaking of real weddings- just a quick glance at this section will tell you what lucky, lucky girls we are: our clients are amazing. A big thank you to all of our lovely clients for giving us so much inspiration this year- from the DC skyline to woodgrain paper to oversized rhinestones to lace and wax seals. We’ve loved every minute.
We’re constantly wowed by the community we’ve been blessed with this year- it’s one of our favorite parts about working in this industry. From TWIPS to local wedding vendors, it’s been amazing getting to know so many fantastic wedding pros.
This was definitely a labor of love- up and running right in time for the holidays, we’re still on kind of a “We did it!” high from this one. We have some big plans for this little shop in 2012!
We got to check some big dreams off of our goal list this year- in print (two times!) and on some of our favorite blogs. Here are a few of the places we’ve had the honor of being featured this year:

2011 was so good to us, and we are beyond grateful. We can’t wait to see what the next year holds.
Happy New Year!
