Give Thanks: DIY Chalkboard Niche

One of the many things I'm thankful for this year is the fact that my husband and I were able to move into a place of our own. We bought our first home and what a pleasant (and, yes, sometimes stressful) experience it was for us. We went through a lot of transitions this year. I switched day jobs, we built a house, and got a significant amount of debt out from under us (despite the frustrating experience of finding out I was a victim of identity theft). Regardless of these major changes, I'm so proud that we were able to pull it off this year! We went through a tough first 5 years of marriage, and now I feel...

So Thankful for God's Precious Gift - Birth Announcement

A new mommy of a little, precious baby girl wanted to welcome her into the world by sending out birth announcements during the Thanksgiving season.

It was a nice subtle add to an otherwise simple design.

The hosts creatively colored the letters on Hershey's Milk Chocolate bars to amp up the excitement for the big unveiling as people assembled their own s'mores. They revealed the gender by setting up paint filled balloons on a canvas. The expecting parents threw darts at the canvas while they were...

Real Weddings: Gold & Mint Summer Wedding

A refined batch of glimmery gold and mint wedding invitations was in the stars for this couple! The overwhelmed bride came to me and said, "Do what you think looks best." So we just sat together chatting about her plans for the big day as I started designing. The eager bride and groom's vision for a nice spring wedding started to became a reality as I sat with her and designed while she was describing all of her plans. She wanted something simple and sophisticated... nothing too over the top, but elegant at the same time. Luckily I'm also a close friend of the bride and groom and was able to also sneak in and take a few photos of their big day....
