On this Memorial Day, I thought it would be fitting to show you all this very lovely, yet patriotic wedding invitation suite that I created for Janelle and Mitch’s big day. I created each famous monument illustration¬†by hand. It was definitely tedious, but the final product was well worth it!

But let us not forget the real reason why we celebrate this special day in the first place. It’s not just another day off of work or a reason to have a back yard cookout. It a day to remember and honor those that have served us and our country. Those who have fought and died for our freedom and safety.



I was searching high and low for a great creative costume this year. Unfortuatnely, time got away from me and I wasn’t able to create my dream ensemble (maybe next year). However, on my search, I found these awesomely creative ideas… Enjoy!



I don’t know if you are familiar with the site Hostess with the Mostess, but I absolutely love it! Looking for a cute idea for your daughters first birthday party (which I am), they’ve got it. Need some clever ideas for your best friend’s baby shower (again, I am), they’ve got it. Need some sassy ideas for your girl friends bachelorette party (yep, I’ve been looking for that too), they’ve got it!

With Halloween right around the corner, I thought I would check out some festive party concepts. Check these out!!!
