Pinterest Told Me To

Sheaffer is one of my absolute best friends.  We spend HOURS at the pool together during the summer and probably just as many hours texting each other funny/inappropriate pictures.  This summer Sheaffer told me that she was thinking of starting a style blog all about taking Pinterest outfits and recreating them with items from her closet and I was SO EXCITED!  I wasn't just excited about the outfits, which I knew would be adorable, but I was excited to read what she wrote because she's STINKIN' HILARIOUS!

If you're looking for some DARLING outfit ideas and a good dose of funny, be sure to check her out (and follow her because she does give aways... which aren't rigged.  hahaha. I tried to pressure her last time, but she wouldn't cave)

Mix and Match Family

My friend Shay, is a blogging machine! (As well as being one of my best friends and best clients - seriously.... she keeps trying to get me to quit my job and work for her full time and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted... think of all the bundt cake!!!)  

I had the pleasure of designing her food blog (Mix and Match Mama - seriously... go check it out... everything is YUM-O!) and her travel agency blog.

I was PUMPED to re-design her personal family blog and incorporate it into her Mix and Match family.  If you don't follow her already - trust me... you'll want to (her little bro is Sean Lowe! The next Bachelor!)

Wright Brothers - Super Heroes!

I'm a sucker for brothers, joint parties and super heroes!  How cute are these brothers?!?!?!

Tenley is TWO!

Tenley's mom found me back before Tenley was born and I got to do her birth announcements, first birthday invitations and now her SECOND birthday! (PLUS - she's expecting baby #2 so hopefully I'll get to do it all over again!)

Tenley's party was Minnie Mouse themed, but not necessarily the traditional red and white polka dots. I think this is a great example of taking a character that your child loves and incorporating it into a more "sophisticated" and unique party design.

Candy Baby Shower

Renay contacted me about making a "candy-themed" baby shower invitation for her sister, with lots of bright colors and, of course, candy!  I adore the little apothecary jars and candy elements. TOO SWEET!

The mom-to-be was flying in from out of town for the shower, and so we also came up with this little insert to include with the invitation - asking guests to opt for gift cards or shipping gifts.  Clever!

Narci D. Photography

I have a sweet "new" friend, Narci, who is a FABULOUS photographer.  She asked me to create a new logo for her and after bouncing LOTS and LOTS of ideas off of her, we settled on this beauty:

Monster Truck Party

Evan's mom wanted a Monster Truck Party invitation that was age-appropriate for her three year old.  (She didn't want neons and flames and crushed cars - hahaha).  I LOVE the colors and details of the final product.

Fall Sip-N-See

I am IN LOVE with the colors of this Sip-N-See invitation.  So fall, so sophisticated, so unexpected! LOVE!

Massey Valentines

Another project for Jordan and Amber - this was a Valentines Day card that they gave out to friends at a Valentines Supper Club. :)

Masseys are MOOOOVING!

I thought I had shared this, but I can't find it anywhere on the blog.... if I have, no worries... it's cute enough to share TWICE!  Jordan and Amber made a move to Fort Worth (Cowtown) and sent out this adorable mooooooving announcement.

Kensington's Bistro

Shay always throws some FABULOUS birthday parties for her cute kiddos and Kensington's 4th Birthday this September was no exception.  It was a French Bistro theme and the invitations were Parisian Chic!  Shay chose the first invitation to use, but I thought that the second one was too cute not to share as well.  Happy Birthday, Kensington Kate!!!

Jennifer "Tiffany Blue" Shower Invitation

Jennifer Probst has known me longer than most people... we go all the way back to High School band!  She and Dave were roommates in college and Jennifer and I got into our fair share of mischief.  Her sister got in touch with me about doing a "Tiffany blue" bridal shower invitation for Jennifer and I couldn't have been more excited and happy for her!

Hayden's Halloweenie Roast

I've had the absolute PLEASURE of working with Ashley on wedding invitations, baby shower invitations, birth announcements, baptism reception invitations and now first birthday party invitations!  WOW! 
I LOVE me some Halloween and was so excited to do a girly, Halloween-themed invitation for Sweet Hayden.  Still can't believe that she's going to be ONE!

Team SEAN!

Sean Lowe was on last season of The Bachelorette, and happens to be the brother of one of my besties, Shay.
I created this fun invitation to a Finale Watch Party for the loyal "Team Sean" members, but little did I know that it would be FAR from the last meeting of Team Sean! Can't wait 'til January!!!

Charlie's 30th

One of my besties from growing up asked me to make an invitation for a 30th Birthday cookout she was throwing for her boyfriend.  She wanted to include some old pictures of him along with nicknames and so I created something fun, summery and playful for the occasion.

Carter Turns 4

Carter Sims turned 4 in September and his sweet mama decided to throw him his party at his absolute favorite place... their Ranch!  I immediately knew what I was going to do and I love how it turned out.  Happy Birthday, Carter Jackson!

Massey Twin Girls Shower

Amber is a friend of a friend who is expecting sweet twin girls! I've done lots of work for Amber, so when her husband's aunt contacted me about doing a baby shower invitation for her, I was super excited because I really love Amber's aesthetic.  I thought it was girly and "fall" and perfect!
