A Calm Choice of Music for a Sunny Afternoon

Sitting in the living room this afternoon, where our display for the One of a Kind Show is now set up and taking up our house, I've decided to put some music on and enjoy the sunshine coming through the window. My brother brought home his record player and all his records this past month and he has one of my favourite albums - hence the lovely listening.

Bon Iver and His Skinny Love

The Album is by Bon Iver and it is called "For Emma, Forever Ago" and it is fantastic. The main man, Justin Vernon, has made an album since this one but this is the album my brother has so I listen to it - a lot! The name, 'Bon Iver,' comes from the French phrase "Bon Hiver" or "Good Winter," which he came up with before starting his album while isolated in a cabin in Wisconsin. Personally, I really enjoy "Skinny Love" - I've included a link to the song and a cover as well here - but the entire album puts me in a creative mood and that is AMAZING while I am trying to be creative.

Music to Get Inspired With

So, in light of it being sunny, and me listening to a favourite album, I am compelled to ask what you listen to when you are trying to get in a creative mood Obviously there are different genres for different moods but I am listening to music so often (and will continue to share my favourites) that I love finding new favourites! 
If you can find me something that is my next great love, I can give you a surprise! Tickets to our upcoming One of a Kind Show in Toronto from March 26-30 - OR - a free card of your choice! But it's got to be good!
Let me know what you decide - and which version of the song you like the best ;)

Unique Wedding Gifts for a Personal Touch

There are always those people as part of your wedding party that you just couldn't pull the special day off without. Bridesmaids, special friends, mothers, fathers, and, of course, the Maid of Honour (the MOH). In all the hustle and bustle of the big event it is easy to get swept away and not stop and really appreciate how important these special people are and how much they mean to you in moving forward with your new life.

When A Card just isn't Enough

Finding a perfect card for those important people is easily the best way to make sure you remember to tell someone how much you care. In no way should it only be said with ONLY a card, but it's a start. This is where we started thinking.... well, why not make that card extra unique? Why can't it serve as a keepsake and memory of how important these people are and how much you appreciate them being in your life? Well, it can. So we tried for something along those lines :)

The Bridesmaid Card

We paired a unique charm necklace with a silver plated chain and added it to a card to create that all in one gift idea. With dozens of quotes to say the right thing for the right occasion, and the ability to customize the charms on the necklace, it is an amazing way to show how much you care. We will be introducing these cards at the One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto next week and would love to know what you think! 
If not with a card, what are some other unique ways you've shown your wedding party just how much they mean to you? Let us know on Facebook and we will give you a surprise!
