Kicking it up a notch

If you follow me on Facebook you have no doubt been following along with my “big news coming!” messages.  I’ve been researching a new direction for LamaWorks for awhile now.  I struggle with finding a streamlined, concise vision for the store.  I think I’m at a point with both the shop and my life that I really want to turn this into a serious business.  Make a name for myself and really bring in an income for the family.  So what did I come up with?

You are looking at a girl that is now an official Dealer and Designer for Envelopments.  Never heard of Envelopments?  Open up a copy of the Knot magazine

or maybe Martha Stewart Wedding

or maybe you’ve seen them on the Today show when they have wedding segments.

Envelopments is an invitation company that allows me to sell not only their designs, but gives me 231 different paper colors in over 90 different shapes, plus hundreds of coordinating graphics to make my own designs.

It also allows me to sell invitations to every type of bride imaginable.  Are you the DIY type?  Just purchase the paper from me, you do all the work!  Do you want to be DIY but hate the idea of formatting and printing everything?  Pay a little bit more and I’ll print and cut everything and leave it to you to assemble.  You don’t want anything to do with making invitations, you just want to send them?  I’ll do the whole thing for you!

I’m also looking forward to meeting with clients in town – so if you live in the Quincy, Il area, I’m your girl!  I’ll get a complete design book that displays the different paper and graphics options.  We can pull each piece out and see how things look together and build it to anything you can imagine! 

For now I’m going to start things slow.  Convert all the products I have currently in the shop to new colors and new prices and then work my way up to new designs.  I’m hoping that by the end of the year I’ll have my very own non Etsy website where you can design your invitation right there. 

My goal is to keep you posted each step of the way with new designs, updates to my Etsy shop and hopefully a new website! 

First up in the design category – Graduation party invitations!

Where did you go??

Yes, I’ve been MIA.  Do I like to blog?  I do, when I have time.  I thought I’d try something new this year with the recipes, but it doesn’t seem like there are many people in the world that really care about what I’m cooking every day {if you do care and want to see the recipes, or at least what I’m making, give me a shout out!!}  It was really taking far too much time to type up all those recipes and remember to take pictures, especially with a baby who is nearly mobile. 

So, I’m not sure where things go from here, but maybe I’ll find some way to get some rambling thoughts out there that people might be interested in.  If you have any ideas I’d love to hear them! 

I do know, what my next blog post is about though … big news coming up!  Stay tuned!

Photo Contest!

Paper Source (the company I purchase 95% of my paper from) is having a photo contest!  They are looking for super cute babies to put on their 2011 Baby Announcement collection.  As luck would have it, I happen to have one uber cute baby!  Am I right??


I need help picking a photo though!  I’m thinking it should be a very clear photo with minimal “junk” in the background.  It doesn’t have to be a newborn photo, just a baby under the age of 1.  So pop on over to my Facebook Page and either “like” your favorite or leave a comment!  I’ll make my final pick by Wednesday!

Thanks for the help!
The girl behind the Lama…
