Yesterday was my favorite day of the month. It’s on the first Tuesday of each month that I get the privilege to meet with a wonderful group of creatives in the Morgantown area to discuss various business topics and ideas. Each time I leave the meeting feeling the spark in my creative heart flicker again and I’m full of excited energy (and good food)! Some days I just get in a slump with my ideas and can’t help questioning myself and thinking “Why the heck am I doing this?!” I think we all get discouraged and feel like what we are doing isn’t enough or doesn’t make sense, but it’s meeting with a group of (mostly) ladies who have the same feelings as I do that makes me feel like I am exactly where I am supposed to be with my business. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE what I do, but some days I’d rather curl up on the couch with a pint of ice cream and just watch Fixer Upper all day!
Cheers to fresh ideas and a creative spark as I dive into two new invitation designs this week!
My husband Bob and I are so excited to be welcoming our first baby, a little boy, in August! We’ve been frantically getting the house ready and finishing remodeling jobs in preparation for this little guy.
I’ve officially capped my quota for wedding invitations for the rest of 2015! (Don’t worry brides, if we’ve been in contact recently, your wedding invitations are already on my calendar!) I am so fortunate and blessed to have 26 brides this year – my best year to date! I already have 12 full orders out the door, with just 14 left to go! Each design has been very fun to create, and I’ve definitely had the opportunity to challenge myself as a designer and go out of my comfort zone. I’ve learned a lot and I can’t wait to learn even more!
I’m still taking a limited amount of party and shower invitation orders this year, but trying to not plan too much after August because I’m preparing for a son who might just be as challenging as his daddy! 🙂
Thanks for supporting my little printing business and choosing me as your stationery designer!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I featured this color inspiration board last year, but since then my blog has undergone TWO major revamps causing me to lose my content. No worries though! I am back with even better ideas to share and color inspiration boards to help you plan your big day! Enjoy this color inspiration on this wonderfully, green day!
Well, while attempting to switch my blog address I accidentally wiped out my entire blog! Whoops! So here I am, starting fresh. I will be re-posting some of the invitations I featured before, but adding in plenty more as I go!
Thanks for reading and sorry for my silly mistake.
