What to do for your Wedding Registry if you want your Gifts from the Handmade Community

As we approach June, the season for weddings, we all know someone who is getting married or getting married ourselves. Me, I'm fortunate to already be married to the most Amazing man on this planet and have a Wonderful family. But to those getting married it is so frustrating trying to get registered somewhere. Where do I register? Do they really have all that I want? Is it really what I want? And for those of us who already have a household and don't really need anything per say, but would maybe just like some things to blend in with our already decorated home or perhaps have that room you would like to re-do, but don't really have the money to do it. With the Go Green or Buy Handmade attitude that we are getting today, maybe we want to help save the environment or help support an artisan with Vintage, Handmade, Repurposed or Upcycled gifts of our choosing.

My answer is simple. Find a site such as Etsy where you can find Quality Handmade, Vintage, Upcycled or Repurposed items that you Love. Create an account there and add all of the items that you want to your Favorites. Then in with your invitations, in emails to your quests or you can even make up business cards to hand out with the URL of your Account on them. Tell your guests to go there and pick from your Favorites for your gifts. Then you know you will be getting exactly what you really want, so you won't have to return 10 toasters. LOL They will be One of a Kind, Unique and Truly You....Hugs...Jewel ;o)

These would be my picks! :)

Marie Antionette LET THEM EAT CAKE Place Settings / Chair Hangers

I got an email from one of my clients a couple of weeks ago. She had purchased my Marie Antoinette "Let Them Eat Cake" Note Cards to use for her little girls' Birthday Party Invitations. She asked me if I could make some sort of Place Setting Cards/Chair Hangers for all of the little girls at the party and I took the challenge. This is what I came up with. These turned out so Adorable I decided to add them to my Romantic Inspirations Etsy Shoppe.

They are 5"x7" and are created from the imagery I used to make the note cards. I printed them on heavy cardstock and then I hand glittered each one with Vintage Silver German Glass Glitter. This one pictured was the one for the Birthday Girl, the others just had their name without Princess so the Birthday Girl was a little more special. :) I then added some Vintage Seam Binding Ribbon Bows in two different shades of pink and extra for hanging on the back of the chairs. I topped it all off with Vintage Style Millinery Forget Me Nots. Aren't they so Sweet?

I can do them in any theme or from imagery from any of my existing note cards or gift tags in my shoppe. I can also do party hats, cupcake toppers and much more to give your party an overall theme.

These would be great for Bridal Showers, Dinner Parties, Luncheonettes, Baby Showers, Parties, Masquerades and more. Order yours today here! :)
