So, as I keep saying I am completely new to the blogging scene. I have no idea how popular my site is, how many readers I have and at the moment I am happy to be slightly oblivious rather than worrying about the figures. What I didn’t expect to hear was that my blog is already making a positive impression on people. I’d received really lovely comments from friends and acquaintances but I never expected it’d been well received further afield… Sharon Lyttle (a designer of alternative wedding details) approached her peers for someone to write short posts for her new-look website and now, we work together!
I jumped straight out of my comfort zone and decided to offer to write for her; after all, I already write on a regular basis for my own blog and as part of my wedding industry work. She said she had read my stuff and she loved my writing style! I was such a scaredy-cat that I’d almost not offered, but she had thought I’d say no so she hadn’t asked straight away for me to work with her. (We humans can be so funny.) I guess it just proves you should grab every opportunity with both hands! And so here I am… a part of the team!
Satin and Tat
Satin & Tat was born in 2012, following the success of Sharon’s own quirky wedding invites – so she just kept designing. Like me, she has a love of the macabre and an obsession with design, illustration and typography so she decided to share it with everyone. She focuses on designing for quirky, style-savvy Brides and Grooms for their off-beat, fashion-forward or vintage style weddings.
We were both thrilled to collaborate with one another and so I got to work on my first piece which is now live! It’s entirely focused on Save-The-Dates as Satin and Tat have an offer running at the moment. 10% off Full Invite Suites when you purchase Save the Dates during February! We also have more design themed posts in the pipeline so… watch this space! I am so happy to help represent her brand and to be getting a new push in the right direction for my new calling!
So… If anyone needs me to do some creative writing for them – hit me up!
Until Next Time…
