I was involved with a baby shower recently for someone who used to baby-sit my babies.
Man, time passes so quickly. I can't believe kids I know are no longer kids and are starting to have their own bambinos!
When I get involved, you know I go all out and well, I love doing things that are different than my normal day-to-day jobs.
It started with the invitation:
Boho Baby was the theme.
Coupled with a little Beatles in the mix.
Then I started going a little crazy from there....
I'm helping with another baby shower in May. This time there are more women in charge. I'm not sure they are going to let me be as creative as I want to but then again, I am sure my paying clients will be very glad if I am cut off.
Here's a story, of a beautiful bride and her handsome groom...

The beauty of calligraphy is you can add a signature touch or what designers in the industry like to call "branding" to your special day. These personalized cups, napkins and matches match the Save-the-Date invite sent out a few months ago and will also match the upcoming wedding invitation going out soon. Stay tuned for the wedding upcoming wedding invitation!!!
Like most families, our family is missing quite a bit of loved ones. I made a wood sign for a bride who is planning her upcoming vows with this thought in mind. Even though we can't see them, they are there in spirit.
When you don't want a huge fanfare, wedding announcements after the day are the way to go.
Treating the wedding party as individuals and not as a general title is a special way to honor your attendants during this special day.
Instead of naming the piece of paper, sticker or card "usher," "groomsman" and "Father of the Bride," using their actual name is a simple but meaningful touch.

A romantic note given to your soon-to-be love before the wedding ceremony is romantic and just down-right thoughtful.
You are FOR SURE going to want to go back to this love note somewhere around the 7th and 14th year of marriage to remind you of this time and why exactly you got married in the first place.
HA! I kid!!!
A super fabulous designer friend of mine, Rachel Singleton, referred me to Whitney English to help out with a dinner for Alt Summit this week.
I was beyond thrilled as I admire both of them so much! The kindness and warmest responses ensued from this fun venture. Simply, I don't think I've ever been thanked as much for anything I've produced as I have for this dinner party.
Rarely does one get to see the finished product unless it is for print. Half the time I stumble upon something I've done by total accident. I find the calligrapher is the last to be thanked or acknowledged when everything is said and done.
To me, when I create anything/something, it is simply unfinished as I am not quite sure how or where it went for it's final resting place.
Today, I was happy to find my little "works of art" found a happy place.
It was a pleasure working with this delightful bride. I don't think I've ever met anyone so excited to be married and exuded such love for her fiancé. She was the bees knees!
