Hello to my most faithful of followers. I have been a horrible blogger as of late. I’m so sorry! As you know, we moved to Texas where my husband has been doing some advanced training for his job in the Air Force, and since then I’ve only completed four paintings (one of which I hate because it’s blue and for some reason I don’t like blue. Weird, I know). Honestly, its been hard to paint here. I’m used to having a room full of light and peace and space in which to let all my creative juices come out through paint, but that’s not really the set up I have goin’ here… Because we’re only here for 6 months, we decided to get a smaller apartment to save money for our, hopefully, much nicer home in Charleston (where we’ll be moving next!) I have to say I am very, very excited about that. Really, just seeing green grass makes me happy these days… Charleston, SC is going to feel like paradise with all the little gardens hidden around town, and the lush sea side feel… can not wait.
I am, however, still staying very busy! I’ve created a new line of wedding invitations and save-the-date cards that make me very happy. I’m such a hopeless romantic deep down… I’m selling them on my shop: BeautifulHello.etsy.com . Hop over and check them out! Even if you’re old and married (like me) they’ll make your day a little brighter. They are all "DIY invitations" meaning I design a custom piece for you, format it onto paper and you get it printed and assembled. It's totally I win win because the bride and groom still get that custom, unique look (that normally costs an arm and a leg) for a tiny fraction of the price, and I get to focus on designing (the part I loooove) and less on printing.
Here are a couple samples. I am still working on getting examples printed of all the other ones I have completed. Coming soon!
See... we're still in love... and such a cute couple we are!
(yes, I made up fake names and info. That way no weirdos find us)
Since we don’t really have fall here (everything died back in May, so there are no leaves to change colors) I thought I’d create a virtual fall/love collage for my own sake. But I thought you may enjoy it too. The first image "DIY Photo Wedding Invitation" was created by yours truly.
If you have some leaves near your home, jump in them for me!
