It's Getting Windy!




Tomorrow is my 30th birthday party! I'm equal parts freaking out about turning 30 and excited to be living it up with all of my friends and family. The theme for the night is the roaring 20s and to celebrate the last moments of a crazy decade I'm hosting my bash at a local Hollywood speakeasy.

In true speakeasy fashion a password for entry is required. No exceptions. Scared that my guests may forget that password I wanted to send them invitations with the secret phase so they'd have it handy on the night of if they couldn't remember. In my quest to find invites that matched my 20s theme, I found NunskDesigns on etsy.

The shop owner, Anita, had a Gatsby invite that caught my eye so I decided to go with her design and customize it to my wants. I am so glad that I went with NunskDesigns. Anita was super easy to work with and put up with my questions and tweaks until the invitations were exactly what I wanted. I am really pleased with the outcome. If you are ever in the market for custom invitations, announcements, and other printables, check her out. You'll love her work!

OK I know you're wondering what "it's getting windy" means. It's a joke I have when I'm drinking. Instead of admitting I can't stand straight because I'm wasted, I blame the wind and tornadoes. I'll even go say far to ask if I'm in Kansas (clearly I'm a huge Wizard of Oz fan ;). I mean, obviously it'd be the wind impairing my ability to walk and not my inebriation!
