Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Oh how I love this invitation suite.  Several months ago I purchased some laces, just to play and here we are.  My “playing” often leads to a stationery project that I may never have dreamed could work but for Christina, it certainly did.  The two varieties of lace acted as a closure along with the silvery satin ribbon tie.  I love the delicate design of the lace contrasted by it sumptious, cottony texture – lovely! Her lacy artwork choice was hand painted with a vibrant coral ink and then embellished with tiny rhinestones throughout. Thank you Christina for trusting us […]

I heard from Sheri yesterday and she said “looking at these photos makes me want to get married all over again.”  I love that. Gorgeous room at The Ahwahnee Hotel. Awaiting some professional shots from Patrick Pike, my snapshots of the seating card and cones will have to do!  This shimmery bark-like paper appeared throughout Sheri’s stationery collection.  It’s subtle hint of eggplant hues and rustic texture added the perfect detail to each piece. Thank you Sheri for trusting us to create your stationery.  It was truly a pleasure to create your vision on paper!

When Patrick Pike sent me a sneak peek at client Sheri’s Yosemite Wedding I was floored.  Having visited and painted in Yosemite countless times I was eagerly anticipating a look at Sheri’s wedding to see how the majesty of this place posed as a backdrop for her day.  Really few words are necessary so I will keep it short and sweet! Gorgeous Sheri, The Ahwahnee Hotel and oh what a shoe shot…look at that light! Sheri (an avid reader of my blog) found Paloma’s Nest pieces on my site and just had to have her newest Heirloom Packaging…can you blame […]

You all know how much I respect my photographer friends, right?  There is something so pure and magical about the ability to stop time, essentially crystallize an emotion and that is what I feel is at the heart of a powerful photograph.  I found this image here and simply could not stop looking. I want to be on that boat, with the wind whipping around me, just with my hubby of course.  We’ll let Christine keep Tim all to herself! Thank you to Daniel Lanton for always surprising me! Have an artful image you would like me to share here?  […]
