Kenny and Shelby

I love floral wedding announcements. Flowers are just so bright and happy, and I love arranging the different colors and watching it all come together. I was excited when Shelby asked me to design her wedding announcements, but I was even more excited when she told me she wanted something floral.

Shelby and I went to college together, and I always loved chatting with her or performing with her. She's smart, pretty, and humble. She definitely deserves a great guy, and I'm glad she's happy! Thanks for letting us design your announcements Shelby. And by the way... your wedding was absolutely gorgeous!

Easter Printable

Easter is on the way, and we don't have a lot of spring decorations around the house. I'm not a big fan of crafting, and I'm not a big fan of dusting either... so in my mind, the more holiday crafts I have to try and make, the more dusting I have to do when I set them out. It's just not worth it. 

And besides, I'm really a "less is more" kind of gal when it comes to home decor. I can't have too many trinkets and knick-knacks on my shelves or I just start to feel claustrophobic. (Except for Christmastime. We love decorating at Christmas). When I visit other people's homes, I love looking at all of their cute, festive home decorations. It always looks so tasteful. But when I try to fill my house with too much of the paraphernalia, it just ends up looking cluttered.

So, to try and add a little festivity to our home, I made some printables this weekend for all of the major holidays and seasons. I have a picture frame sitting on the piano in our front room, and I have a printable for each holiday to go inside the picture frame. I think it's a good compromise. Kyle gets a little taste of the holidays in our home, and I don't have to make, store, or dust all of the little trinkets. One picture frame, a few pieces of 4x6 photo paper, and there you have it.

Anyway, I decided to share our printable for Easter, just in case anyone else might like an easy addition to their Easter home decor.

The Annual Harry Potter Party

For two years in a row now, Kyle and I have hosted a Harry Potter Party sometime around Halloween. We have a blast, eating Harry Potter-themed snacks and dressing up in our wizarding robes. I'm glad we have friends who enjoy the books and movies as much as we do, friends cool enough to revel in the magic of Harry Potter with us. This past year I decided to send out a virtual invitation instead of a hard-copy one, but I still wanted to make something a little fancy for the occasion. Here is a copy of our invitation from last year's party. Take a look!

Ashton and Lori

Our worlds collided when Ashton and Lori started dating. We knew both people in the relationship. Ashton: my good friend from college, and Lori: Kyle's sister! We couldn't have been more excited when they got engaged! Ashton and Lori make a great team, and we were thrilled to help out with their wedding details. Kyle did most of the work on this wedding announcement, and I think he did a great job at capturing his sister's personality in the design. Congratulations you guys! Your wedding day was beautiful.
