My company is all about filling the needs of creative brides. In my recent research I felt there were not enough awesome wedding exit ideas, so with a little puzzling with my puzzler I came up with a new, fun idea! I've made clear tubes and filled them with bird seed or sprinkles plus an optional added ribbon flare. Your guests tear off the tops and shake in the sky to make it rain. My friends Dave and Julia agreed to be my guinea pigs last month at their wedding and I only had thumbs up reviews! See my full... Continue reading

I am very honored to be chosen to share my business stories at the Etsy Up Seller Conference in NYC next week. I will be sharing on two panels and one will be available for streaming in the future. I hope to encourage and learn from lots of sellers in the fabulous Etsy community. Pray I don't get too tongue tied with it's my turn to speak! And of course I'm staying for a few days to have a little fun so I will need to close my store for 3 to 4 days while I'm gone as I sell... Continue reading

These are my final days in Portland! We'll be moving closer to some family needs in Reno, NV in ONE month. Mavora will close for two weeks to get our footing and when we reopen all of my save the date tags will be available again. My main girl Kateri will continue to print and ship bags from Portland but I have to say goodbye to the rest of my PDX girl team. I am so sad!! Nikki, Kathy, Reilly, & Melissa were such blessings to me! Now I have to make a whole new amazing crew in Reno, but... Continue reading

I have a number of examples in my store for wording ideas but I've also collected a few of the most popular here. When you buy from me you get to write in any text that fits and creativity, personality, and romance is encouraged! And these are a few of my favorite grammar tips: (1) you don't need much punctuation, this is not a 7th grade essay. Skip periods for sure (2) you don't need an "and" in "Two thousand and sixteen" just say "Two thousand sixteen" (capitalization correct) (3) use "five o'clock" or "five-thirty" in the evening, unless your...

With brides being allowed to show more and more of their creativity and personality in their wedding invitations I've had more requests to make my save the date tags into wedding invitations. Guests get a magnet reminder with the invite and couples only have to purchase and send out one invitation set. I wanted to show you a recent bride who made a wedding invite package out of my Jamaica Map Save the Dates. If this layout suits you I can work it up in any of my designs, just ask! XO Continue reading

This weekend Kateri and I worked on a roasted nut recipe and a new design. You can find the recipe at MarthaStewart.com (we used cashews instead of almonds and they tasted awesome!). We threw the oiled nuts right in our grease resistant bags and not a spot could be found, even days after we filled them! These bags are champs! You can purchase my new original design in my Etsy store now. Or go to my sample section to try them our yourself! Mmmmm. Bring on the Fall and Winter weddings! XO Continue reading

Last weekend the family hit the beach to celebrate 10 years of marriage. I am so blessed to have a great man by my side who laughs with me and supports all of my wild dreams. I wish the same kind of love for all of my wedding clients! I brought a how-to sketch book with me and my untalented hands actually pulled it off! You can see my poppy pencil drawing on two new seed packet favors in my store now! XO Continue reading

Recently my supplier has been sending me slightly different kraft bags and I just want to let my customers know of this change. My kraft paper bags used to come with a scalloped top but the next 5,000 (or more) will have a flatter top. I'm not too worried because they are still great bags and have the same sharp look when printed. You will receive one of the bag styles in this photo. They are a matte, light kraft paper, approx 7.5 x 5 inches. Perfect for a hand full of candy. You can always contact me to find... Continue reading

This month I'll be celebrating 10 years married to my favorite friend. We were raised on opposite sides of the country but God scooped us up and put us back down, face to face, in New Zealand. It was there we went from bad first impressions, to friends, to dating, in one of the most beautiful places in the world. I am so blessed by my husband and our matchmaker - New Zealand. With a thankful heart I looked at my last order from a bride in New Zealand and out of my mouth came, 'let's do free shipping from... Continue reading

I really like to believe I'm on top of things - but when it comes to a few areas of my life I'm just NOT. I'm not even in the middle of things. I'm laying down on the side with my fingers in my ears and my eyes closed. Like the night before Calli's first ballet class (I know nothing about ballet btw) I was on facebook trying to figure out what to put on the girl's feet. I hit payless for slippers on THE WAY to class at 9am. And last night I was in and out of the... Continue reading

Emmaline Bride wrote a great post on popcorn favors and she featured my bag line! POP over there to read some great hints on popcorn favors and to browse some of my bags. I liked her idea about buying this popcorn scoop to help you fill! My bags hold about 2 cups of popcorn depending on how you style it. I also recommend that you fill these as close to consumption as possible OR be sure to cool and blot dry your popcorn before adding to minimize grease spots. If it were my wedding I think I'd make a popcorn... Continue reading
