Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

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.  […]

We’re so honored to have been part of the cover shoot for Munaluchi Bride Magazine.  The ladies behind this publication have fierce spirits and some amazing ideas to back up up that fire.  They’ve created a platform for brides of color craving the utmost in style and culture.  This cover shoot had its home at The Villa at Sunstone Winery which Elizabeth Messina captured effortlessly in all its light filled glory.  Look on for more.

You never know what to expect from Bridal Market, a nod to tradition or a splash of color; we of course welcome the latter.  Like I’ve mentioned before this is our second year back and we’re still fine tuning our fashion crystal balls.  We’ve been following our favorite designers and trends but there were still many pleasant surprises in store. Douglas Hannant and Stephanie Allin were two designers with distinctly different looks this year… which kept us on our toes and in our sketch books! Douglas Hannant looks this season were distinctively daring with peekaboo silhouettes and angular folds. The […]
