Helping brides have that special someone walk them down the aisle.
My name is Lindsay and I opened my Etsy shop on August 21, 2009. I had lost my mother to Acute Myelogenous Leukemia 4 years earlier and my uncle to Pancreatic Cancer just a few months before my wedding and I was searching for a way to have them with me on my wedding day.
I stumbled on a set of two small frames at a local craft supply store and decided to create my own. I purchased the frames, some jump rings, two spools of ribbon, a small set of pliers and went to work. I fought my printer long and hard to get the photos the way I wanted them, small enough and clear enough to fit in the frames.
When I realized how wonderful it was going to be having her photo in my hands as I walked down the aisle I decided to turn my private Etsy account into a Shop account to help other Brides-to-be find a special way to have their loved ones close to their hearts on one of the most important days of their lives.
The shop was opened to make the process of remembering a loved one on your wedding day as simple and inexpensive as possible for the busy bride. I had no idea what I was doing or just how many people would be interested in something so small. Several thousand sales and happy customers later, and I am more excited than ever about what 2015 has in store.
I do a lot of work with people's photos to ensure that the prints are high quality and a good fit for the frames they choose. Many bride's will come to me and say, "I know this isn't the best photo, but it is the only one I have of him/her." and I have been happy to touch up the photo and get a great quality print for them where they otherwise may have never had the time or resources to do themselves. Many brides also want a saying to accompany the photo and I am happy to design a custom message and print it at no additional charge. Each piece in my shop is truly one of a kind. While you may find some of the same materials I use elsewhere, I pride myself on being a full service shop and I work very hard to ensure that every detail of each piece is designed to the client's exact specifications.
I am a one woman shop. I purchase & inspect all of my own supplies. I crop, edit, and color correct all photos, I assemble and package all orders from start to finish.
I have come a long way since the early days, it took a lot of trial and error to get to where I am, but I feel truly blessed to be able to lend a hand in making sure that brides have a piece of jewelry for their bouquet that will not only hold significant meaning on their wedding day, but will continue to be a cherished item for many years to come.
Thank you for taking the time to read about my journey as an Etsy shop owner!

Charms are placed inside a small plastic bag to protect from moisture while in transit, that small plastic bag is placed inside of a small pillow envelope to give it a sturdy "shell" the pillow envelope is then placed in a 6x9 mailer and which is marked fragile. This has been a very successful way to ship my items so far, however if you would like an extra layer of protection such as bubble wrap please message me prior to ordering and I was so my best to accommodate you.
