Twitter. Greta. Wedding Inspiration.

I have really come to love the twitter/blogger community. It's so refreshing to "meet" and chat with other people across the country who are doing the same things and support one another. It's hard to imagine life before social media - what did we do before then??? {I even get most of my news from Twitter - thank you NBC4i for that! Sad isn't it??}

Yada, yada, yada... get to the point Jackie. {Sometimes I just start rambling... I apologize.}

Anyhow - I have asked my dear, sweet friend Greta of NL Designs to do a little guest post for me today - It's always nice to have someone else do the talking! And she's fab - I know you guys will love her and enjoy getting to know her just as much as I have!

Hi everyone! My name is Greta and I am from the great state of Wisconsin! I was born and raised in Titletown, USA, 4 blocks from the World Champion Green Bay Packers :) I now live in central Wisconsin with the love of my life and his four children from his previous marriage. Ever since I was little I've had a passion for weddings. I love reading wedding blogs, planning weddings and doing DIY projects for the big day.

I currently have an Etsy Shop that is undergoing reconstructive surgery. When I started the shop in February, I decided to sell fun things that I really enjoy making for affordable prices. However, as my blog evolved more and more, I've recently decided to clearance everything out in the shop in order bring in a line of wedding products! I'll be featuring a line of cupcake toppers, table numbers, save-the-date cards, bridal headbands and more!

Here's a shameless plug before I begin my guest post today... there are two things you can do! You can [visit my blog] and find a coupon code for an additional 30% off my products that are clearanced anywhere from 40-80% already! The other thing you can do is enter my first giveaway! Have fun!

So I met Jacqueline via twitter at the beginning of her blog. We became great friends instantly and can sit for hours and talk [though we've never met in person!]. We LOVE to talk about love and weddings and so today I wanted to share an inspiration board that I've created for her based on some of her favorite color combinations!
