The invitation that started it all

Seems like it was yesterday that my now husband asked me to marry him.  After all the excitement calmed down, I started planing all the details.  The one thing that I kept running across was the generic cookie cutter invitations that cost an outrageous amount of money that I was not willing to spend.  Because I already have a background in art and photography, I set out to design my own invitations.  It was a huge learning process that took me about 3 months to execute.  However the results were well worth the effort.  Not only did I end up with some pretty awesome invitations, I also found a passion that I wanted to develop more with.  Since then I have designed save the date cards, graduation invitations, ceremony programs, rehearsal dinner invitations, baby shower invitations, and a countless birthday party invitations.  Perhaps I will feature a few of those in a later blog.

Fast forward 2 years later… I am now in the beginning stages of opening my own business and I am about to start my 2nd to last semester of school.  Even though I have more on my plate than I should, I don’t regret making my dreams come alive.  This has been a wonderful experience and I am enjoying watching my designs evolve as I gain more knowledge about this wonderful field of graphic design.
