It has been nearly a week since my return to the studio from yet another life changing Engage.  Earlier this week I shared some of my favorite speaker sketches that were featured during Day 1 session on the big screen, so to speak.  I must admit seeing my art more than 4 feet tall is a bit intimidating!

With inspiring paper from Envelopments we created the main session stationery including these oversized placecards.  Jasmine Star grabbed this gorgeous […]

I’ve been awaiting the final sketch of my cake from Ms. Weinstock and her talented staff and yay it is here!  They even included my Clara French cakestand in the rendering.  The party is next Saturday and the final headcount is in.  The hubby and I are so excited to celebrate with all 95 of those (eek!) who couldn’t celebrate with us in Utah!
