I have not blogged in a LONG time.  This is not because I have not been creating, it is because I have been BUSY.

Things are a little different around here these days.  Creating anything happens late at night or whenever I can find a spare second.  With the addition of my little Eli a year ago, my time became even more precious and some creative projects have been placed on the back burner.

I am still creating invitations, but moreso now just on a word of mouth basis.  I have taken my website down completely and am just creating things here and there.  I love the stationery business, but my main business now is mom and I love putting all of my time into that.

Since my last post our Art for the Soul pottery business has officially taken off.  We are busy with home parties and pottery to go and it is a blast!

Another endeavor I am working on is the creation of my website.  It is not quite there yet, but my trusty web designer is working diligently to get it launched!  Soon we will have lots of Michigan Pride apparel and goods for sale - it is so exciting!  Here is a sample of items that will be available:

Currently these items are available at The Michigan Shoppe in the Frankenmuth Riverplace and at The Enchanted Cottage in Lake Orion.
Besides all of THAT that was just mentioned, I do want to share some new invitation designs with you because well, they are super cool and must be shared.
First up is a LONG overdue shout out to the fun, cheerful, upbeat, and all around awesome bride that is Jessica.  Her wedding stationery was SO FUN to create.  From her save the date cards to her gorgeous stationery, her invitations showed what an exuberant personality she has and were a great introduction to what sounded like a fun, beautiful and memorable wedding.


I have also created a slew of baby shower invitations lately and I must share this one that is my all time favorite.  I love the idea of a non-traditional shower.  This invitation is the epitome of non-traditional and the shower itself sounds like a ton of fun!

These baby boy invitations are adorable.  From a sports theme to a baby cowboy, the cuteness is everywhere!

This summer I also participated in my first ever craft show. It was a wonderful experience!  I was very grateful to receive some guidance from my experienced crafter friends over at Little Mitten Designs and Kreations by Karen and I now feel that I am ready to tackle another!

So, as you can see, I have been doing A LOT lately.  It was been a wonderful, creative, and genuinely fun few months and I look forward to crafting and creating my way through the fall.

My goal is to try to update the blog a bit more with my endeavors - we shall see how that pans out!
