Save the Date!

My sister is getting married! Being the awesome, supportive sister that she is she wants to incorporate Vivi Dot as much as possible. This started out with the save the date cards. I've always thought that magnets that can act a reminder for the details of the wedding are a great thing to include with save the date cards. I thought I'd put a Vivi Dot twist to what's normally a flat business card sized magnet. My sister went to Paper Source (one of my favorites) and designed the note card with the '3 dots' in mind. She let me know what she wanted each magnet to say and then let me run with the rest of it. Here are some photos of the process and the finished product too:

UPDATE: related post located here.

Vivi Dot workspace:

We chose the round paper source labels for the addresses to keep the 'dot' theme consistent.

Fallen Heroes Project

My friend Andrea went to a fund raiser dinner for the Fallen Heroes Project last night and the cause is definitely worth spreading the word about.

Michael Reagan, an internationally-recognized portrait artist, has a goal of creating a portrait of every soldier who has died in the war. So far he's created 1100 portraits for the families who have lost a loved one. At the event he shared many unbelievable stories about the circumstances in which he's created the portraits. One for a widow so her husband could be with her when she gave birth do their baby and another of a father with his baby that he was never able to meet.

The artist creates every portrait for free, but needs help raising money for supplies. Check out his site, spread the word, donate, or do anything you can to help this bipartisan and inspirational cause.

Vivi Dot Online Store

After many months of getting pushed to the bottom of my todo list, I've FINALLY added new items to my online store! I have a long way to go, but I'm happy to be at a point where I'm not embarrassed to send traffic in that direction.

It's a lot more work than I first realized! Take photos, crop photos, upload photos, write descriptions, QA, and publish all changes. That's not even counting what goes into making everything!

Next on the list: Update my main site (ViviDotOnline.com) to integrate my store and blog as well as make some enhancements I've recently learned about that will help my search engine optimization rankings. I'm confident that I can cross this one off my never ending list much faster than the last.
