FREE ART PRINT

Happy May!

Today I was inspired to create this subway art print from the enduring quote by Saint Basil.  I was traveling last week and encountered the absolute rudest person on the airplane.  Apparently, he was clearly upset that I had to sit next to him because the airplane was full.  Really . . . it was the last seat on the plane- where was I going to sit?  On the wing?  Holy smokes?! I am the one who had to sit in the middle,  sandwiched in between two strangers (and I have a serious personal space need and claustrophobia). . . no window to look out or lean my head against and no aisle space to kick my leg out in.  Yet, he was huffing and puffing about having to get up to let me get seated.  I really had to remember to be KIND and not go all ‘Negan’ on him!

So, I thought this might help to remind myself and others to take a deep breath and try to be more polite to strangers.  If you are traveling this summer, please be polite and patient – none of us truly want to be squirreled in so close together on an airplane ride with complete strangers- but it is the nature of flying, so smile and hold your tongue. Soon you will be landing at your destination and back to your comfort zone.

I printed my design and added it to a frame in my home- so I wanted to share it with you for FREE.

2017 Wedding Planning

WEDDING PLANNING IDEAS FOR 2017 BRIDES 

Last week I shared birthday planning tips and so today I am motivating brides to get started with planning their 2017 wedding.

First, to all the new fiances and brides-to-be who recently got engaged and are setting their wedding dates for 2017- CONGRATULATIONS!

Great news!  I just re-opened the I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs shop and I am now taking new 2017 custom wedding orders!

Stop by my shop here-  I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs 

I offer wedding banners, custom favors, handmade send-offs, and of course PINWHEELS in every size and design-

Extra large pinwheels for the entire bridal party or smaller sizes for favors and flower girl pinwheels to carry –

Boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen too.

Create your own wedding reception display with pinwheels as table centerpieces or wedding guest gifts or . . .

Add flags to your custom pinwheels with table numbers as escort cards or table numbers or a personalized message-

I am loving this pinwheel table number set-up, that I helped a bride with, all organized by alphabetized last names with their printed names on flags.  Brilliant!

I also offer wedding cake toppers in coordinating pinwheels-

These pinwheels and cake were a little less traditional but they still looked adorable and were perfect for this diy decorated wedding cake for a small casual outdoor reception.

Hope some of these ideas have inspired you 2017 brides!  Come browse my WEDDING SHOP and request a custom order.  Happy to help!

Embrace the season

As a less popular wedding season, there are so many elements that you could capitalize on to make your wedding unique in each stage of planning.

 Flowers

How gorgeous are these mixed muted color flowers?

Treats

When it comes to the treats keep the season in mind. What are some drinks or desserts you look forward to having during this time of year? Hot chocolate and sugar cookies are some of my favorites!

Photography props

What a precious idea! Use props such as a mistletoe to add to any photograph.

No need to be freezing in the outfits you choose. There are so many fun winter style to choose from!
