    I am entering to hopefully win this for my friend Rachel. She’s getting married next month at a vineyard in Yadkin Valley, NC. This would be the perfect gift for her and would totally match her rustic chic feel of her wedding. And of course I love the purple polka dot…such a fun store!

    I am getting married 3.3.13 to my wonderful boyfriend of 3+ years (and father of our awesome 2 yr old daughter). This would be a fantastic addition to the wedding, and probably our bedroom decor! Love it!

    Love the Mr. & Mrs. sign! I will soon be ready to start on invitations! I have a love for all things paper and can’t wait to use invitations, programs, signs, favors, etc to make it all come together!

    Hello! This summer I plan to figure out how to make fabulous flower arrangements to help save on the cost of flowers for my wedding!

    Such a cute sign! I’ve been working on details for our wedding 10.27.12 and without realizing it seem to be zeroing in on a rustic theme. This would look so cute for our reception! I’ve also been looking out for cake stands/toppers that would go with the theme. Any suggestions?? Thanks! I’ll have to stop by the store someday soon!

    I would love that sign for our wedding I am trying to do LOTS of DIY projects. I am doing personalized hanger for myself and my bridesmaids. Semi DIYing my wedding jewlery, Shoes, and a few other things. Plus doing our own flowers and decor for the wedding!
    I am excited to do all these projects but would love to win a few things that will lighten my DIY load…

    I feel like this was meant to be. I just tried spray painting some wood signs with stencils and it was a mess…;) I’m just not meant to do anything DIY (heehee). These signs are gorgeous and would be perfect at our reception in an old lodge in Colorado! Beautiful!

    I am in love with The Green Kangaroo designs. I’m getting ready to order my invitations right now. I would love to add this adorable sign to my outdoor summer wedding in August. This sign would be the perfect backdrop centerpiece for our ceremony. I’m going to recommend your site to my bridesmaid who is also going to be a bride in March.

    I am obsessed with this sign! Our whole wedding is going to be DIY, so honestly, what am I not working on between my full time job, full time school, and wedding planning- good thing I have almost a year to plan, but every little bit helps and the look of the sign matches our look to a tee. Currently I am preparing our save the dates and confirming our venue in Seattle. For our save the date we are incorporating a photo booth picture, with Save The Date in each shot, witht the date and us of course. I love this giveaway and hope at a chance to win!!

    This sign would be the PERFECT addition to our rustic barn wedding! Would love it :)

    Projects Im working on for the wedding include personalized drink stirrers. My mom also made my garter, card box and ring bearer pillow. It has been a life saver to have such a supportive group of friends and family members that want to help us so much! The Mr and Mrs sign would be perfect for our classic, vintage style venue! Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity. Our wedding is taking place August 3, 2012!!! <3

    My step father and I are making a box that will be used at our rehearsal dinner. We are asking our guests to bring a picture, memory, story or advice for us to put in this box. We will put a bottle of our favorite wine in the box as well and open it on our first wedding anniversary.
