Inviting you to new beginnings.

We had a booth at the Bridal Showplace held at the Queen Mary.
This was the first time my brother joined us for the show.
I met a lot of new people that I'm happy to say that I'll be doing their invitations! During set up, Paul saw a friend of his that he hasn't seen since high school. His friend happened to be the son of the lady that runs the Bridal Showplace! What a small world.
Today we delivered two sets of invitations. We finished Jenny Lee's Lemon-Lime invites:
And we finished Elma and Kenny's spring larch pochette invitations:
They were on a tight budget for wedding invitations, but wanted didn't want to sacrifice design. This invitation was a good choice for them. The invitation flips up and the RSVP and directions are in the inside. The RSVP postcard is perforated so the guests just rip it off and send it in.
They really liked the orchid that was drawn originally for Camille and Ray's wedding:

The wedding invitation industry is really evolving. The designs that were different 2 years ago are common and old. This month and next I'm going to be concentrating on my first love: design. I've been wanting to close the door and redo my boards for a long time now. There are so many invitation sets that have been completed that are not even displayed! Shame on me!
