What makes your business stand out?
There are no templates. We work with customers to get to know them and find out what their style and their story is. If you are a movie lover, we'll help turn your wedding stationery into movie tickets, a filmstrip, popcorn, or whatever you envision. We often incorporate photographs of the couple into our products. People are more inclined to keep something that has a friend or love one on it; it makes a more memorable keepsake for the couple. We also offer specialty products. Having a destination wedding in Jamaica? How about custom door hangers for your guests? Have a lengthy walk to the ceremony site? How about outdoor floor decals that tell the story of how you and your fiancé met?
What inspired you to start this business?
I'm a newlywed (under two years of marriage), and the wedding planning experience is still fresh in my mind. As a bride-to-be, I remember how most of the affordable invitations were templates, and I had to settle for an invitation that was kind of my style, in almost my wedding colors. That experience [is] part of what created Brown Fox Creative. I want to offer modern options for brides that are perfectly what they want, in exactly their color, style, and theme.
What is your most popular offering?
Save the date magnets. They literally stick around. "Will you be my bridesmaid" wine labels and ceremony program fans [are also popular], especially for outdoor weddings.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
"Oh my goodness, I love all of these. I just can't choose. Let's do half the order with this design, and the other order with this other design." They just couldn't bear to pick just one design for their save the date magnets. So they didn't, they went with both.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Feeling the excitement from brides as they give me general ideas, and we brainstorm the perfect solution.
Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We offer different paper types: linen (a textured paper), bamboo (a softer textured paper), and pearl (a shiny paper). We also have a large selection of die cut shapes and folding styles.

Maddiepie Creations takes its name from Madilyn, the daughter of owner and photographer Brooke and the inspiration for her foray into the visual arts. Brooke snapped her first photos of her children at soccer practice, and before long, the parents of the team's other members began asking her to photograph their kids as well. Today, she photographs both adults and children, working in her studio or at locations that have special meaning to clients, such as a secluded garden or the sidewalk where they once found a $20 bill. Brooke also adds personal touches to portrait sessions; she custom-designs boxes to hold prints, and can even help clients decide what to wear.
Mailed announcements take on an air of artistry at Paper Planet, an all-purpose paper outlet whose designers craft handmade stationery sets, elegant invitations, and monogrammed mailing supplies. Racks of paper sheets spruce up scrapbooks and crafts with polka dots, florals, and other original designs. Stationery sets come in more than 60 bold color schemes, such as a pink azalea and poppy theme that soothes the sting of breakup notices. While customers wait, a personalized monogramming service embellishes the cards with calligraphic initials. The elegant script also appears on custom-designed invitations, which often grace the virtual pages of the Brides of North Texas blog.
The quaint shop, tucked beside a bakery in the historic Handley district, also welcomes visitors to drop in for craft classes. Usually limited to six students or two Edward Scissorhands, the workshops introduce a range of paper arts, such as handmade books, invitations, and paper wreaths.
In 1909, two rival papers, the Star and the Telegram, joined forces to form a single towering source of local news and information: the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. From its early days, the paper stressed an importance on regional affairs, delivering digests of local news by stagecoach throughout an 84-county area while updating neighbors in its immediate vicinity via paper airplane. The paper has also demonstrated a knack for technological innovation, establishing Fort Worth's first radio station in 1922, the South's first television station in 1948, and one of the first computerized newspaper services in 1982.
Today, the Star-Telegram continues to inform Fort Worth area residents in every way possible, supplying print and online editions of its international and national stories, sports, local coverage, and thought-provoking editorial pages. The paper?s award-winning investigative reporting protects the public through intensive documentation of issues including foreclosure-auction abuses, toxic substances in everyday products, and local schools? performance records.
