Happy holidays and our winners

categories Bits + Pieces

Bonjour nos chéris! We first want to thank you all, every single sweet one of you, for making this year such a fun, inspiring venture. We’re signing off for the rest of 2009 to recoup and make some progress on our website. YES, we do actually intend to launch it. We’re not just saying so. But before we do, we have a few things for yous.


Our contest winners!

It was soooooo hard to pick just 3 colorboard winners. So hard. It’s like being a judge on Project Runway or something. Imagine how stressful that is! But here they are:

Juliet, who will be getting married in the hangar of the Kansas City Airline History Museum.

Melissa, who will be marrying her Scottish fiance at the house of an art lover in Glasgow… there will be kilts. Yay.

Charmaine, whose wedding will be inspired by a field journal collecting nature’s wonders across two continents.

Congrats you lovely ladies! We’ll be in touch.

  63. I’ve been using apple products and services because I will recall and not even looked at alternative products! (Pretty much an apple fanboy as some might say) But its time for change apple haven’t given anything to me that is worth the money or fascinating for the last few years!

  64. I’m not surprised. Apple actually disappointed me yesterday with the iPhone 5c pricing. They seem so hell-bent on their profit margins I am not sure they understand the notion of aggressive prices. The 5S is a phone I’d rather give in support of the 6 and that I was hoping the 5c is the LTE-competent iPhone I have to tide me over-under then in a competitive cost. But that cost isn’t aggressive.

  65. Thanks! It works great! :)))) I couldn’t do this before but now i can thanks so much
