aruba custom wedding invitations

As you can see the Aruba diva tree is a very unique tree! So it is no surprise that the bride and groom wanted this tree on their invitations and stationery for their destination wedding in Aruba!

Shown at the very top, is the invite with a vellum overlay. The second photo is the actual painting I truly enjoyed creating.

Hot trend in design!

Wow. What a QUICK growing trend. Hand-drawn lettering that is sketched then colored in. Frankly, I think Starbucks started this. I should know, Mindi and I are there at least twice a week. At any rate, it is cool and fun. Is it for a wedding invite? Maybe if you are a teacher or getting married in a school classroom. I would use this font on laid back, fun ads or a children's party invite for sure. A bit like the recent BIRD craze. I think hand-drawn lettering will be here to stay, for a REEEEAAAAAAL long time!

Veterans Day

I had to take a minute to post our GRATITUDE for all of those who serve and have served for our country. What a blessing YOU are.

Because of you, we are free. Because of you, we are safe.

Thank YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

Tiffany blue is calming and refreshing. I love the brightness and the modern look it conveys. A few accessories here and there look classy and hip. Light aqua and tiffany blue lets your guests know you are FUN and not afraid to be happy. How cool are YOU! Paired with green florals, red, orange, yellow or lavender colors make the aqua POP.
