Vendor Vail Wednesdays~ Simply Silhouettes

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I am recovered from my stomach bug and ready to take on the week, and what a great way to start this blog week but with a VVW post! {you know how I love them}.

Today I would like to introduce a vendor whom I have been crushing on since I was introducted to their work during a seminar in August.  Simply Silhouettes is based in the Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon.  But thank goodness for the internet, because now you can find them at the tip of your fingers!  Simply Silhouettes is a husband and wife team- Angela and Patrick Flynn- who took a traditional artform and transformed it into modern, useable applications.  It’s not just for your grandmother’s walls anymore!

Angela and Patrick got started by making silhouettes for their own kids years ago.  Angela’s parents had silhouettes that had been made of her and her siblings at Disneyland hanging in their house.  They hadn’t been to Disneyland with their own kids yet and Christmas was acoming up and they needed a gift idea so they decided to see if they could create a digital version.  They made them of their kids, then made one of their niece and when Angela’s brother started running over to the neighbors to take pictures of them so that they could make silhouettes for them, they knew they were on to something  The business was officially launched back in 2006 and the Flynns have been at it ever since.

Simply Silhouettes offers a collection of custom made silhouette products that offer people a unique way to preserve priceless moments.  All of their silhouettes are created with handcrafted warmth, classic styling and a touch of whimsy.

Their work has been featured in Brides magazine, Southern Weddings, Real Simple, Country Living, Family Circle, Everyday with Rachael Ray, People and more.

I have to say that I ADORE the creativity that Patrick and Angela have put into their products at their shop.  There are a million and one different ways that you can use these silhouettes!  From pillows, to iPhone covers, to their long list of products in their bridal line {which was launched last spring, and you can check out here}, I love the fresh, whimsical, handcrafted warmth that they use to create these personalized memories.  They even offer a line called “My First Silhouette” for ultrasound silhouettes for parents to be.

I can’t stop thinking of the possibilities for what you could do for entertaining with these silhouettes.  So on that note, it’s time to send you exploring into the world of Simply Silhouettes  with this week’s VVW giveaway!
