I had the opportunity to collaborate with a great team recently at the Design Inspirations engagement in Fort Worth. Kristin Wallach of Designing Fresh asked me to do a bit of calligraphy work and a chalkboard for her tablescape she designed and presented. Below are some images from the event, including floral work from The Enchanted Florist, as well.

The Swoon is tomorrow, are you coming? I’ve been prepping all week for this event that’s sure to bring you loads of inspiration and ideas. I wanted to share a couple of pictures with you – first, the goodies you’ll find from Blue Eye Brown Eye in the first 50 swag bags. The first 50 people in the door will get vintage stamps from yours truly – enough to send one letter to someone you love.

Secondly, I wanted to share my inspiration board with you I’ve been working from for quite awhile. Expect to see some fun surprises in the Blue Eye Brown Eye/Anna Routh Photography booth. You’ll definitely want to swing by, I promise.

And in case you need the details one more time:
Where: Southside on Lamar
When: Saturday, March 24, 4-9 pm
What: A bridal event sure to be spectacular!

It’s an exciting week here for Blue Eye Brown Eye because The Swoon event is finally here! This Saturday, March 24th from 4 – 9 pm, come out and enjoy an array of unique wedding vendors, ideas, treats, and most of all, the party! If you’re a bride or groom-to-be, a lover of wedding blogs, or just a creative person that likes to be inspired, this will be the event for you! Anna and I will have a booth together, and we have lots of surprises up our sleeve!

Because I’m so pumped for this event, I’m giving away two tickets (one for the winner and a guest) – that’s right, save your money for the bar – your entry will be on me! Here’s how you can enter (doing one of the below is an entry, enter as many times as you’d like):

  1. Tweet about the giveaway and be sure to include my twitter handle, @blueeyebrowneye
  2. ‘Like’ the Blue Eye Brown Eye Facebook page and leave a little note on the wall so I know you’re a new Facebook friend!
  3. Leave a comment here on the blog – be sure to include your name and a way to get in contact with you.

I’ll announce the winner (which will be selected at random) on Friday, so get to entering! After you win, you’ll need to let me know the name of your guest, as well.

For a little more info on the event:

I’ve got a big project coming up that I’m making some “rough drafts” for, well – it’s more like “rough books.” This is a handmade book I just whipped together this morning using a coptic stitch. Y’all, this could be a new addiction. It’s so much fun. More to come about said project.

Gold ink adds such a beautiful, elegant touch to any envelope. Here, I used Dr. Ph. Martin’s Iridescent Copper Plate Gold with a Nikko G Nib.
