Goodness, do I have a beauty of a bespoke wedding invitation design to share with you today.  Beautifully rich colors and a custom monogram incorporating the same florals as were in the bride's wedding bouquet, this one was one of my favorite custom wedding invitation designs from the winter of 2016.

Curated Collection: The Beloved Wreath Suite

Curated Collection: The Beloved Wreath Suite

Hey loves!  Today I wanted to share a few details about a specific invitation suite designed for The Curated Collection, and share thoughts that went into the design for the Beloved Wreath Suite, which was inspired by Pantone's Color of the Year for 2017.  I completely love the organic style that is being incorporated  into a lot of weddings that I am seeing these days - from adding a long garland centerpiece to having bouquets that are comprised of more green than florals, I love the free-spirited but tailored beauty that they hold.

A Note of Grace: Building your Life with your Business

Today is my first day back home from the 2017 Society for Creative Founders Conference, and my mind is still swirling with everything that everyone shared and was learned.  I was tremendously blessed to speak on the Core Module at this years conference experience, and I wanted to share a little bit of what I spoke on with all of you.   I feel that this small dose of encouragement delivered in these loved Note of Grace posts is still so needed by so many, so I hope you will all continue to join me in reading these posts.

Hello and happy February loves!  I have been quietly working on something "behind the scenes" for a few months, and today it is the day for it's debut!  A new collection is now available, known here as The Curated Collection! Why the Curated Collection?  Well, simply put, I think of it like this:

What a beautiful color palette to start off the year with for Bespoke Wedding Design!  There is something so elegant and beautiful about blush and navy together, and then when you add in the slate and champagne, goodness it's pretty.  

Looking Back: A Note of Grace + A Year of Free Monthly Downloads

Looking Back: A Note of Grace + A Year of Free Monthly Downloads

I always think it is interesting to see where ideas take you, and how they change from something that you began to do, to see how it can morph and grow into something completely different than originally intended.

A little over a year ago, I designed a Bridal Shower invitation for a bride that I loved so much that I decided to turn it into a free digital download set for phones and desktops as well.   A few months in, I also began designing a scripture version to go with it. Once I started this, I gave myself the challenge to stick to it for a year and see where it took me, leaving it open-ended as to where it would be a year from then.   I have loved doing this for the last year, it has definitely been something that has taught me more about myself as a designer as well, while it unexpectedly encouraging me to continue to grow my faith!  Looking back, it was amazing to see which designs seemed to be the most popular and which ones I loved to design the most.  I loved putting together this collection below to see them all in one place. However, it also taught me something else that I wasn't expecting ...
