Handmade custom invitations & stationery

It has been a while since I featured our Signature Vintage Lacy Tree Wedding Invitation;  Long enough I would say!  Our Lacy tree has a long history, an evolving character and is beloved by us all at the studio.  Whimsical charm, custom sketches and a lighthearted mood make the tree a constant favorite.  Melanie first contacted us and knew the tree was for her.  Marrying in a vegetable garden *love*, the lacy quality of the tree seemed perfect.  I suggested a basket full of veggies nestled under the tree. We then added dragonflies and a pretty wrap in Envelopments Repousse […]

Utterly Engaged launched their Anniversary issue last week and earlier this week I took some time to share a special project we contributed to their “Sew in Love” shoot.  Today I want to give a behind the scenes peek at the Paper Painted Blooms created for the issue!  Heavy watercolor papers, thick shimmering inks in sherbet shades and glistening vintage broaches all played a part.

After a rainy weekend and dreary few days to follow, the sun is finally shining here in Northeast PA!  How appropriate since today I am sharing my very sunny collaboration with Good Life Events and Llanes Photography!  Recently Melissa from The Loveliest Day featured this concept shoot on her very lovely blog! Ready for a vacation right?  I know I am!  The caspian napkins and those jade green vases let you know immediately you are in store for a color experience.  Oh and those peach carnations were the perfect choice to allow the other colors to really sing! I love […]
