We are under way!

Wow! What a summer! It's only just begun, but I am busy, busy, busy! First off, I just got a new computer and am busy transferring files from my old one to my new one

Where to begin...

Graduation invitations and thank you cards! Congrats, Grads!!

I have had a lot of bridal showers recently and have had a blast putting together invitations and decorations for those. I find myself saying yes to any project, and I feel this makes my people happy as well as expand my own horizons. I even designed a pair of Hearts cards that were 20"x30" for a bride and her husband-to-be. They turned out great, and according to a bridesmaid were quite a hit! Always great to hear.

My good friends, Dan and Regina just got married in Pennsylvania this past weekend. The wedding was so much fun, and the best part was that I got to have an excuse to hang out with Regina a lot before (and after) she moved from DC to start her married life back in Philly. We spent so much time having a blast while creating the programs and donation cards. I'd have to say that's the best part of doing this. I get to see so many different creative opinions and ideas AND spend fulfilling time with people I love dearly.

One of my best friends, Laura, is HAVING A BABY in August! Those shower invites were so much fun to do, and I have also created a stencil of the baby's name that I will paint on the nursery wall next week. I am so excited to see how this will turn out.

I am working on wedding programs for a wedding whose invites I did back in May. Mallory and Jason have an indigo color scheme, which has proven to be quite popular here recently, yet also VERY difficult to match colors to. Everything is too navy or too purple. No worries, though! Embellished by Emily has it down! The programs are tri-fold, and I am very excited to see them in print!

Just got word today that I have another bridal shower coming up in August with a brown and pink theme (yay!) and I am so excited to work on those.

It seems every time I log into Facebook, another friend is engaged or pregnant. Congratulations to all of you blessed friends of mine, and keep me in your brains if you find yourself finished with everything but invitations and all things paper!

I look forward to working with my autumn/winter wedding brides soon. In the meantime, catch those fireflies, and I hope to hear from ya!
