Wedding Favors - chair boxes

Just finished up a wedding favor project - chair boxes. The couple customized the color of the chairs and the ribbon, we also recreated a mongram which had been incorporated in their wedding invitations. I am not sure what they are going to fill them with, but I referred them to which is a great source for bulk candy and you can search by occasion or color! I am selling the same chairs and other favors on etsy right now at: but once these listings are over, will be moving to dolceinvito.etsy.

Professional and Personal ~ Dolce Invito

New name and hopefully new clients in the near future! I came up with Dolce Invito which is Italian for sweet invitation. It sounds nicer than Minerva and is not in use by others like Carta Bella was. SO I'm testing it out. Once I would open a brick and mortar store, I have visions of cotton candy machines and cupcakes with custom invitation orders.

On a personal note, recently, I haven't been able to use my right arm which is causing a little bit of trouble for working on projects and even blogging. I have another herniated disc. I already had a discectomy and fusion at C5-C6, C6-C7 in November of 2006 but it looks like I've got to go back under the knife. :( I had the x-ray and MRI on Friday and will see the Doctor again on Tuesday to discuss surgery and scheduling.

Hope til hope endures... hopefully from this suffering good things will also come my way.
