So, I thought I would be too busy today to blog about another of my favorite party planning businesses. But, I decided I cannot skip a Monday! It is one of my favorite things to do - giving love to amazing people, businesses, and artisans!
Today's "Great Find" may likely be one that you are already familiar with (especially if you have read through all of my blog). But I am featuring it anyway, because the designer's work blows me away everytime I see something new from her! And, hopefully, I may spread the word to a few people who do not already know about this business.
Monday's Great Find is....Paper and Pigtails (check out Etsy Shop and Blog).
Kori, the owner and designer, is a lovely friend of mine with an amazing spirit and a beautiful family. I remember when I first met Kori and her husband (then fiance). Chad and I had just moved into our first house, the neighborhood was new, and we did not know many people. We were walking our Brussels Griffon, Baxter Blackbeard, and Kori and her husband were just getting out of their car in front of the home they were building (Are you feeling nostalgic Kori? I know you must now that you will be passing that home on to someone else!). Kori showed love to Baxter, and both of them were so friendly and warm. We left that first meeting excited that we would have such cool neighbors. And, they did grow into great friends during the time we lived in that neighborhood. We had some fun pre-children times :) Chad and I moved out of that house a little under two years after first meeting Kori. We lost touch for a couple of years, but I found her again through Facebook, this time post-children on both of our ends:) I have since discovered her amazing artistic talent!
Paper and Pigtails' Etsy shop is a DIY party printables shop. Kori designs all of the graphics. You can find anything from invitations to cupcake toppers to snack cups. She has many lovely designs and themes available, but the best thing about Paper and Pigtails is that she is able to do custom orders in whatever theme you can dream up. And, she can do pretty much any type of DIY party printable that you can imagine. For Kira's party, I ordered invitations, address labels, water bottle labels, favor tags, food and drink labels, etc.
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I attended Kori's daughter's third birthday party this weekend. It was amazingly designed and planned! Everything I thought it would be and more! I know she will post her own pictures, and I do not want to spoil that for her, but here is a "sneak peek" picture that I took (excuse the fact that I am NOT a professional photographer!!).
