Recent Work

The studio had been closed for a couple of weeks so that the husband and I could take some well deserved vacation time. We traded in laptops and coffee, for beach towels and margaritas (and plenty of them). Before our trip, however, I was on a printing marathon and finished five rush orders in one week. Not an easy task (and one I'd rather not take on again). Nevertheless, this is the cause for the lack of posts.

I was flattered when this bride came to me and wanted to use the same scroll I had used in my own wedding invitations - it was her favorite design in our wedding collection. For Stacy's fall wedding she wanted to incorporate a chocolate brown and burnt orange - two beautiful, complementary colors for such an event.

Bride Sophia wanted me to create an engagement party invitation for her guests that used orange and grey. She wanted a romantic scroll that was clean and sophisticated, and I believe we achieved that for her.

Natassa is a Greek bride who lives in the United States with her fiance. Because they are getting married in Greece, she was elated to find out that bilingual invitations are what we specialize in. To follow her beach themed wedding, she wanted to carry the sand dollar image throughout all of her wedding pieces, including her wedding stationery. 

Switching away from weddings and on to babies, a good friend of mine recently gave birth to her first - a sweet little baby boy. She wanted me to create trendy yet sophisticated birth announcements for their family.

My friend Julie is throwing a couples baby shower for friends of hers who are leaving the sex of the baby a surprise. I was so excited to play with this green and yellow color palette (two of my favorite colors) and incorporate this cute little owl as a play on her text.


  1. What font is used on Anastastia and Dimitrios's invitation up top? It's lovely!
