It Runs in the Family

When Brent and I got married in December of 2006, I searched high and low for the perfect photographer. But after seeing the album prices, I decided to just get the CD of images and figure out something myself. Designing my own album was a blast! I started dreaming of someday doing this for other brides and photographers. It took months of planning, marketing, figuring out suppliers and prices. Finally, in October of 2007, KruBooks was launched. I can't believe it's been almost 2 years! It's been an amazing journey, and I am so thankful to be living my dream.

As it turns out though, I wasn't the only one in my family who had the creative entreprenaur gene! In February 2009, my sister Sarah started her own online stationary shop called Jack and Izzy.

Her etsy shop features a great variety of products - personalized stationary, stickers, prints, invitations, birth announcements. One of her most popular items are these adorable bookplates. Aren't they so sweet?

Sarah's business has exploded in the first 6 months, and I am so proud of her. Her ideas are all incredibly creative, but what's even more wonderful is how her attention to detail ensures that each product is impectably produced and packaged. Check out these party packs! If you want to throw a perfectly cordinated shower or birthday party, this is the way to do it!

For more information on Sarah and her shop, you can check out the Jack and Izzy blog. Visit often for great home/entertaining inspiration, gift ideas, and other fabulous etsy artists.
