Looking for the perfect wedding gift?

The summer is filled with many warm weather weddings and endless parties to go to. Now that most of my friends are married we seem to be going to more baby showers and birthday parties these days instead of weddings. I am always happy when I get to paint wedding platters because it reminds me of these happy times I shared with friends including my own. 

If you are looking for a one of a kind wedding gift our custom wedding platter is the perfect gift. This special gift is available in two sizes (11" plate and a 16" platter) and can be customized down to the last detail. We can match the bride and groom's wedding flowers, colors and attire. The more details you can provide the more specific we can make the platter. You can even add a special message on the back of the platter to honor the bride and groom. In honor of the summer wedding season these special plates and platters are 15% OFF through the end of July. Use code SUMMERWEDDING at checkout to receive your discount. We can even ship the gift to the bride and groom gift wrapped and including a gift card from you.

Enjoy the summer and many beautiful weddings!

Is Non Traditional for You?

Pictured above is my son Jackson's birth announcement. I know it's not what many people would picture as a birth announcement. Jackson is named after my husband's father (Jackson aka Jack) and John Bonham, the drummer from Led Zeppelin. My husband is a huge Zeppelin fan and a drummer himself. Since his name is a little unique we wanted to have some fun with his announcement and so the mini Led Zeppelin album concept was born. 

Johnny chose the "Physical Graffiti" cover because of the name in the windows and it's one of his favorite albums. The announcement is a 5.75" square and was mailed in a white square envelope. I did the scrapbook look on the inside and the back as a way to showcase pictures of our new bundle of joy and his birth information which is listed on the "concert ticket". Guitar picks, drumsticks and old polaroids along with a backstage pass completed the look. Now this kind of announcement is not for everyone but sometimes it's fun to think outside the box and have some fun with things that are usually thought of as traditional like birth announcements and wedding invitations. I know that many designers such as myself welcome this kind of opportunity to have some fun and make something very creative.
