Back to what I love....

Designing and creating!

I am incrediably sad that my maternity leave is coming to an end. I'm finally able to find time to work on long over due projects, and it's time to go back to reality...boo!

Here's what I worked on today:

Very special wedding invitations for my sister-in-law. Her impending nuptuals is coming fast (November 2010) and it's about time I finished up her invites. There is still some minor tweaking to do, but so far I am very pleased!

Her theme is Rustic Vintage.

I came across a similar invite design on the web, and after Terry's blessing, I set to work creating my own version. After all my work was done digitally, I played around with a little bit of distressing on the edges with ink. I love it! I think she will too.



A moment to breath

We're finally moved into our new home. Not entirely unpacked, but definetly in a livable situation. We absolutely love it! This house is slowly becoming our home.

With much of the large projects out of the way, I've found time to breath. I've also found a few moments to browse a few of my favorite blogs. One nice thing about being out of touch for over a month, there's lot's to catch up on! I found so many inspiring posts. I especially was interested in some of the photography posts I found. I finally found time to play around with my Nikon and had fun taking photo's of Gwen. I'm determined to learn more about my camera and how to use the many neat functions.

I also found some very cool creative projects to try out. I'm dying to get my office/craft room completed and unpacked so I can start working again. I miss scrapbooking. I saw a friend on Tuesday that I crop with and just laughing and being around her made me really miss scrapbooking. I also can't wait for my next scrapbooking retreat. I need to start Gwen's books otherwise next thing I know...she'll be two!
