the making of a save the date

i get a LOT of questions about my process.  apparently most people think i’ll draw something up for them and if they don’t like it – too bad! but that really couldn’t be further from the truth.  if a couple wants to give me full control – awesome, but i really want whatever i make to represent my client… so i appreciate as much input as possible.  take these save the dates for example… jessica and marvin sent me some of the most amazing engagement photos i’ve ever seen (photos by o snap click) so we played around with a few…StD-01 StD-02 StD-03 StD-04 StD-05 StD-06 StD-06b StD-06c


from there we settled on 1 photo and played around with that for a while… ocean-side-01 ocean-side-02ocean-side-04 ocean-side-05 ocean-side-06 postcard-front


til we came up with the final design:




did we choose wisely? which is your favorite? mine is the 5th one down of them on the bridge – simple and that was my favorite picture of them.  check out some more of their engagement photos HERE

if you are in need of some save the dates email me at and let’s get to creating!

how to get other people to buy you laurenish things

getting married? having a baby? doing something else exciting that gives you a reason to put together a registry? why not add some word art or rubber stamps to your list of toasters and towels?


step one: make an amazon wishlist or registy – CLICK HERE

step two (A): dream up the perfect laurenish item… maybe it’s a rubber stamp with your new address, or a word art canvas or wood panel, maybe it’s a custom designed skateboard deck or even a gift certificate… either way email me with the desires of your heart and i’ll post it on MY ETSY PAGE and you can add it to your registry

step two (B): maybe you dont know what you want but you expect your friends and family to figure it out… choose one of the already posted items to add to your registry

step three: sit back and smile as you think about how tech savvy and awesome you are… and how better your life will be now that you’ve added a little more laurenish 🙂
