It has been a while since my thoughts have run to this blog. Normally this is a place where I share and gather ideas and mark days by the beauty we create. With the weeks whirling by, the studio work has mounted, life has been lived but somehow I haven’t felt the drive to share. Making conscious decisions these days to just be, just make, just live for the sake of each, without a need to put it all out there. So friends I’m back, with a smidge of a new perspective and another epic invitation project under my belt. Today I’m dreaming of a long few days of doing whatever feels good and thankful for the courage to say “no” in order to make room for those days.
A peek into Theresa’s invitation suite project seems appropriate. For her a variety of quiet, super mindful design moments mingle to create a ton of wow factor.

Making art is about taking a journey. This shoot, has had quite the journey over the last two years and to that end…yes, making art requires unrelenting patience. Two years ago we traveled to Southern Utah, with two of the most inspiring photographers I’ve had the pleasure to know. With a common vision and shared passion we embarked on a journey to express all the creative energy bubbling up inside of us. Sepia had long been an inspirational concept for me artistically and I wanted to somehow translate it into a tangible moment.
All began with this Pinterest board, where I gathered my thoughts….
Rose gold foil for the wedding invitations was the driving force behind the look.
I love how it glistens….ahh!
Southern Utah light is magical…I’ve never been to Venice, but I can’t imagine anything better.
I developed an abstract pattern for the table linen…By Bloomers always blows my mind with their eye.
Oh the Watters Gowns….miles and miles of frothy blush texture….
Palm sized programs with close-up vies of the botanical pattern. Touches of white ink were mingled with the blush and coral watercolor. Stunning. Couple’s names were handwritten on each – adore this simple touch.
