Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

I am off to wrap up design work for my last 08 clients and then to enjoy some fun times with my loved ones. I will be posting “here and there” over the next two weeks. Be sure to check back after the Holidays for some amazing real weddings (one from AZ with some amazing shoes), a peek at the new spring collections and lots more – so excited for 09! Lastly, a little cheer from my pups, Gunny the Greyhound, Chewy the Chihuahua and Harry the Hairless!

The Momental team created escort cards with […]

If you are not familiar with my Inspired Ink weekly post listen in… Every week I choose a bouquet, gown, real wedding or anything that catches my eye, to use as inspiration for a new invitation creation. Inspired Ink posts are essentially pages in the sketchbook of my mind – layouts I always hoped to try, particular flowers I have wanted to illustrate, all inspired by the amazing images that can be found in the “blogosphere” every day. So thank you bloggers, brides, photographers, florists and more for giving me such wonderful ideas!!! Last week Laura E. of Southern Weddings […]
