Happy Header Giveaway!!!!!!!

So back when I was a stressed out, overwhelmed, anxiety ridden Bridezilla Bride....I had a precious friend do some adorable custom work for some water bottle labels. (and let me insert here, I don't know who I'm kidding because I am still ALL of those things listed above, except now a Wife vs. Bride).

I digress.

Anyway, Brandie from Designs By Brandie made some A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E water bottle labels for me, as one of our favors leaving the wedding were bottles of water with our custom label, date, names, etc on them. We also had adorable bottles of water in our Welcome Baskets in the hotel rooms for our out of town guests. My mother freaked and decided that we couldn't use the SAME bottles in the backets as we did the wedding, because technically when the guests got to the hotel room before the wedding, Rob and I weren't married yet, so we couldn't have our "new name" on the bottles. Ok ok ok ok --- this all came about like 6 days before the wedding so I had NO desire nor energy to state my case on this issue, so I let my mother win that one- and asked Brandie if she could make a different label for the "hotel water". Making a long story longer, she of course came through again!!!

And what is SO amazing about all of Brandie's work that she has ever done for me, is that I will just email her and say: Here are some colors, here is what it needs to say, it's for this event- and yall- the girl creates a MASTERPIECE!!!!!

I emailed her in tears the other day....you know... This Day. I told her I just wanted a new header, and I wanted it pretty and I wanted it to be different, but that I had NO IDEA how to do it. She asked me what I wanted and I said I know nothing more than what I told you already. I know nothing. I said I wanted prints and maybe pictures and come cute fonts and maybe something from the color palate from our wedding, but that none of this I was sure on. She let me be SO ridiculously indecisive and said "Ames, let me work on this, and let's see what I come up with and if you hate it we change it, or we tweak it or we start over or whatever." *Amy breathed a sigh of relief*

So I say all of this to let yall know that Brandie is as sweet as they come. She is so patient, and so GOOD at what she does.

***********Getting to the Point, I Promise*************
