In the works

First of all, enough with the royal " we"! I was beginning to annoy myself. Dori & Viv is just little old me but the line truly does encompasses my entire family and all the amazing craft people that they were and are.

I'm sure many of you are like me and always have multiple projects going on at once. And here is a little taste of one that is almost ready to launch. More to come!

Stop the Presses again!

A write up from across the pond. Fantastic! Reading She's Crafty is reason number 542 why we would love to live in the UK. What a great resource for crafters who are lucky enough to live there. Can't wait to forward it to our friend who just moved to London. Plus Miss She's Crafty has great taste too. Our Deco is one of our favorites! And it better be too. So labor intensive!

We have a tradition here at Dori and Viv. Each time a friend of our gets married we put together an old school mix tape ( minus the tape. Hello! 2008!). Our friend Lara popped hers into her mothers mini van while driving herself and a whole boat load of bridesmaids to the church. As we saw Lara grooving down the street, veil waving in the wind as she tore through traffic we knew that this was a good thing. Plus finding new wedding and reception music is hard! We hope you get some inspiration our mixes too.

Dori & Viv Bride- Shannon

Look how pretty she looks! We love seeing how brides style our pieces differently! It's the same Magnolia that our last bride Nicky wore but with a different style dress and jewelry ...
Completely different look! Thanks for sending in the picture Shannon! And all the best on your wedding.
