March Desktop Calendar (2016)

That time has come again! Time to clean off the desktop and enjoy a fresh start at the beginning of a new month.  While it is *technically* still February (and I am beyond thankful for the extra day this year), I thought a reminder would be helpful for all ;)

We moved this month! I can still hardly believe it—though the constant scrambling through boxes and the fact that we slept on an air mattress last night is a constant reminder—and I am so excited to begin decorating and getting settled in March.  The Hubbard also begin coaching Track this month, which means a new schedule is right around the corner for our little family.  Always lots of fun, but takes a period of adjustment.  I am learning to be graceful and calm through this season.  It is exciting, and I want to enjoy it without becoming too overwhelmed with the process or what I didn't get accomplished.

All this and more on my newsletter!  I can't wait to share more with you

Monogram Wedding Invitations(2016 collection)

I recently released my 2016 wedding invitation collection, and this one is probably my favorite!  The hand illustrated florals, the bold type, the monogram... Yes!
This set is complete with invitation, response card, program, thank you card, envelope liners, etc.  Check out the photos below or visit the listing for more photos.

Designed a gray scale version as well as this gold foil, though I prefer the gold design myself ;)

A Vintage Bride...

One of my favorite portraits from 2015...
It was difficult, because the photos were old to begin with (and I had to work from a photo of a photo, so...!), but I loved the simple style, the cascading bouquet, the beaded detail at the bottom and her simple glow.  The strob-ing and contouring trends of today don't always leave room for the soft glow or faint blush of a new and giddy bride, so there was something special about this job.
And the fact that they've been married for longer than I've been alive also added some romance to the project.  A suitable post for Valentine's day.

Overall, I really enjoyed this piece and I hope that they were as thrilled with it on Christmas morning as I was to create it for them.

Catching Up...

How sweet is this little girl?
One of my illustrations from the Christmas season.  I'm used to sharing as I go, but when you are dealing with gifts, you need to be extra careful, so I'm just now getting around to sharing the finished products.
Here are a few more 5x7 portraits::
