navy blue was the theme

I tend to peruse the photographer's websites every once in awhile to see if I can catch a glimpse of work I have created for brides. Thankfully the photographers leave about photographic evidence of creations that once existed.

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.

I illustrated the invitation and sent it off to the printer. Yea, maybe, I shouldn't take pictures of my work at 11pm...

Then I started going a little crazy from there....

I know this looks more sad than it really was but it was cool at the beginning of the party. Flowers over the food table.  Next time, I think I'll hire someone to take pictures as I am the worst at remembering to take relevant pictures when I am in the mix of cocktails and sweet baby clothes.

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.

Now available 8x10 Original Print "It's Okay Not to be Okay Not All of the Time"

During this time of craziness, it's okay to admit, you aren't okay.

This can be purchased through the above On-Line Link.

Revisiting 2016.....

Wow! 2016 just flew by!!! 

I have to confess, I don't remember much of the year only because there was so much beautiful activity twirling around!

Here is an example of such beauty:
