custom requests from my etsy shop stress me out, yet i still can’t say no… and this job is one reason why i say yes:
i was contacted last week to create a wedding book for a couple getting married in brooklyn botanic garden next weekend. i struggled a bit at first, but once the bride-to-be sent me a copy of her wedding invitation, i had the direction i needed. the invite had bits of gold, and was a simple yet modern design, so i knew the book could be less traditional. after searching a few stores and online to find the cover paper, i started to panic a bit, but a quick trip to mcba’s gift shop saturday morning yielded the perfect paper to match the gold bookcloth i had already had on hand.
i still worry about tiny little imperfections, but i think this will be a good addition to the bride and groom’s big day. i’m so honored to be a part of it.
