Jitney's Journeys : Our First Wedding!!

When Jessica messaged us on Etsy about making 22 centerpiece placemats, I was curious as to what she would use them for. Regardless, I still answered with a resounding, "Yes! We can definitely put 22 centerpiece placemats together for you."

Next message excerpt: "I'm getting married in October..."

My eyes grew wide and my heart started racing with excitement! We get to create something for someone's wedding -- our first wedding that we can actually be a part of through the product line of Jitney's Journeys!!

If you couldn't tell from our previous posts, JD and I love marriage. Love. It. And for us to have the honor of making centerpiece mats for somebody's wedding - their first day of their marriage... we were pumped to say the least. Just like every personalized piece or order we put together, those centerpiece mats were prayed over. All twenty-two of them. Because of Etsy, we are able to pray for people we will most likely never meet. It's a beautiful way to see God at work.

So, here's a few photos of what we sent her, in order of the opening process...

Please note that I blurred out the addresses. :)







Jitney's Journeys Products : Halloween 90th Birthday Surprise Party


My sweet friend, Kandess, asked if we could make some special accents for her grandfather's 90th surprise party. 

Theme : Spook-tacular Halloween 
Location : Gorgeous Barn

As with all of our products, all of the goodies here were custom made and passed by Kandess first to certify perfect satisfaction. 

Not gonna lie... I had a pretty difficult time figuring out which direction I'd like to go when designing these products. The original thought process was chalkboard-inspired but then I thought that maybe I should go a little more grunge or even maybe a little more cute-sie. After hours of that not working out, I decided to try proceed with the chalkboard-look. 

That's when I designed this lovely banner...
and kept pressing forward.

Inspiration, achieved. :)
