Christmas Final

It’s time to start thinking of ideas for your Christmas cards!   We have a wide variety for you to choose from… including letterpress, die cut, tri-fold, and ornament cards.  I offer FULL-SERVICE for these cards… meaning that I will address them and mail them for you, saving you valuable time around the Holidays!  If you are on a tight budget, you can pay for the jpeg file, which I will e-mail you, and you can print them yourself, or send them to your favorite photo printing place to be printed on photo paper.  These are totally custom, one-of-a-kind cards, which ensures that you won’t be mailing the same Costco version as your friends!

It’s also time to schedule your family portrait session with your favorite photographer! Contact me at if you need help finding a talented photographer in your area.

The blog posts have been lacking lately, but I’m happy to be busy! I should have photos of new paper products from recent weddings soon!

I LOVE creating baby and bridal shower invitations, and when I am helping with the planning, I know that the little extra details make the event even more special.  I started creating these shadow boxes with the invitation and other shower elements in them.  They dress up the guest sign-in or game tables, and they are a great gift to send home with the bride or mom-to-be.  I created these two for baby showers (one was  for my gorgeous nephew), and they are both being used as artwork for the nurseries.

I created this one with pieces of the wedding invitation and her bridal shower invitation.  I had to take a picture of it with my camera phone… not quite as nice as the professional ones… but you get it.

I can create these for you, or they are a fun DIY project!

I grew up in a small town in Kansas.  It was important to show appreciation in a tight knit community.  Parents did business with each other, kids played together… we all saw each other every day.  After birthdays, graduation, Christmas, etc., my mom would sit me down, hand me some pretty note cards, and have me write a personal note to each person that had given me a gift.  I am sure I tried to get out of it, but I remember trying to convey my thankfulness for each gift… mainly so I would get another the next year.  Now that I’ve grown up (a little bit), I love receiving thank-you notes.  I save some of them because I am weird; but I also save them because they remind me that I need to send them to others… I want other people to have reassurance that their generosity- whether it be a physical gift or a gift of their time- didn’t go unnoticed. 

I realize that a new trend in wedding thank you notes is to buy a pre-printed “thank you for the wedding gift” message.  If you purchase custom thank you notes from Flossy, however, the inside will provide plenty of room for a special personalized message from YOU.  I read in an etiquette guide that couples have 1 year after the wedding to complete their thank-you notes.  I recommend sending them immediately after receiving the gift… or less than a month or so after the wedding.  It’s also nice to put how you’re enjoying using said gift… “We really have put the beautiful throw you gave us to good use… it has kept us very warm on our movie nights!”. 




We can create stylish notes with a monogram or wedding photo.  It’s a great way to put your beautiful wedding photos to good use.   Thank Yous are also a great shower gift!  I included a few photos of some we created in 2010-2011.
