Happy Holidays!

photoHappy Holidays! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged since Sept! So busy! This little guy on the card is one of the reasons! My adorable little pug, Moose, has been keeping me quite busy! He’s at the 6 month point, so thing are looking up (ish!) I wanted to share my holiday card, such an innocent little monster! Can’t wait for the Holidays and New Year! Hoping to blog about some work I’ve recently done, and some photos! More to come!!

hydrangea invites

I had some time this week to spit out some upcoming summer wedding invites for a friend of a friend. Her flowers are mostly going to be green hydrangeas, and she wanted that to be the look of the invite – can’t go wrong with floral! I love hydrangeas (personally drawn to the white ones) but naturally I had a blast with these – a no brainer! One of my good friends had these flowers in her wedding bouquets a few years ago, so I dug up some photos from her beautiful wedding (sniff, sniff) and found I had some first hand inspiration! The greens are so beautiful! I tried them on the last of the linen paper I had, and while I love linen, I’m going to try some cardstock for a little brighter color! To the paper store I’ll go (look out!) The navy envelopes look really great (her other color) with the bright green (and against my new tile!) and they will all be tied together with a matching satin ribbon. Love it! I also might try to talk her into some simple white envelope liners depending on the paper she chooses, because I’m a geeky paper lover like that! Can’t wait to start on the rest of my summer wedding projects – I hope they’re as enjoyable as these!

… it’s November?

I can’t believe it’s November! Where has the year gone? This crazy warmer weather (not that I’m complaining) has really thrown me off, that or time is really just passing by at lightening speed! Perhaps a little of both, at any rate, it’s the best time of the year (so please slow down time!) and I couldn’t be more inspired! Speaking of, we make posters at work to psych us up for upcoming seasons – I thought I’d share a little of my work and own inspiration for my favorite time of the year! Happy November to us! This season I’m attempting to cook more (hide your children, hide your wives) craft more, and blog more! That is if I can tare myself away from all the eating, shopping and surfing Pinterest! I have been stupidly addicted to that site, it’s wonderful for imagination! So many inspiring projects, I want to make EVERYTHING, it’s creative madness!

Speaking of the season, I must backtrack and share our pumpkins carving efforts! While I’m a little embarrassed to claim my own pumpkin, I will say this for myself – I did not use a stencil. Can you guess now? Shockingly, I am not a pumpkin carving genius. The artist in me believed I might be, but without a doubt (or a wimpy stencil) my masterpiece was, well… unusual. My gorilla witch, if you look closely, has holes for her (…his/it’s) hair.  I made these with a hand drill, which was such a great idea for carving a pumpkin (maybe not my execution) that I got from Pinterest. More Ideas to come! Happy November!

They’re engaged!

I had the weekend to come up with something for two of my good friends upcoming fall engagement party. Between her brother’s wedding, and my brother’s upcoming reception, we’ve been awfully tied up with parties, favors, flowers, invites, etc. – it’s been a busy summer! One wedding down one to go! The work is mostly done, so now it’s time to focus on her upcoming wedding! Hooray for a new round of wedding chaos!

She liked the idea of a fall theme, and I loved this leafy vintage inspired paper for the awesome envelope liners – my new crafty obsession! I think they came together quite nicely, if i don’t say so myself! Looking forward to a great year of wedding planning fun! I couldn’t be happier for two of my favorite people!
