Blogmusings on stationery
the etsy shop is a funny thing. i end up working with really cool people all over the country (and even world – i shipped out an invitation order to australia yesterday! so crazy.) but wouldn’t even know them if they were to walk right past me. that is what is so wild to me about the internets. they connect people in an amazing way, but at the same time remain so damn anonymous. a new anonymous etsy friend in boston asked me to do the “jungle” birthday party invitation for her daughter violet’s birthday party – wait, don’t get excited – this is NOT ben affleck and jennifer garner’s child. although with the boston and violet thing i can see why your mind went there. and they are not anonymous anyway, i would totally know them if they walked right in front of me. and then i would squeal. after i fainted because they wanted me to design violet’s birthday party invitation.
this fete was held at the franklin park zoo in boston, and the photographer, bella wang, was sweet enough to email me the downright fabulous photos she took. wow – she’s good, and the party looks like it was a great time!
the elephant on the cake looks so much like my little guy on the invitation…i am dying!
we also whipped up stickers for the lunch boxes…
…and coordinating labels for the favor boxes as well. animal crackers, of course!
how adorable are these little party animals!
little wild things, so precious are they. happy 2nd birthday violet!
