Custom Wedding Favor Ideas

Earlier this summer, I had the pleasure of working with Abby of AE Creative to create a custom seating chart and favor combination. We met a few times to narrow down what would be the perfect fit for her bride and groom. We came up with personalized keychains to use as a seating chart, and then for the guests to take with them as their unique favor. Wedding favors are something that a lot of thought goes into, as the bride and groom want something that is memorable from their special day, but still useful (or consumable – food and drink are a very popular choice) for their guests.

Christmas! Presents! Decorating!

Every year I have this idealistic vision of how my presents will look under the tree, and then inevitably, as life goes, I run out of time and then rush through everything. Not this year!

Harry Potter Book Cover Origami Wall Art

I was recently commissioned to make a custom wall art piece out of the covers of the Harry Potter Series! I have to say.... it turned out far better than I imagined that it would! I've been pretty enamored with the series since I was 11, power-reading every book within days of it's release... even standing in line at midnight for some of them! I even succumbed into the Pottermore world and sorted myself to see where I'd land. I honestly thought Gryffindor but ended up in Ravenclaw. J.K. Rowling, you created a magical world where I could escape from reality as a teenager - thank you for dreaming up this world! We were only able to acquire covers for...
