Project of the Week: Baby Shower Invite

I met my friend Monica when we were freshman at LSU. She quickly become one of my best friends. We lived together for two years and had so many fun times together. After she graduated, she moved up to Shreveport and got married. And now, years later, she is having a baby girl! I hate that she lives 4 hours away from me, and that it's hard to visit with our busy lives. But I am so happy for her and was honored to be able to do her baby shower invitations!

Most information has been changed on invitation.

The inspiration for this invitation came from the fabric in the baby's room. After much searching I was able to find two images online with a high enough resolution to get the shapes I wanted for my invitation.

As I work on these projects,  I find that I really love doing two things: Decorating cakes and designing invitations. I think it's because in both cases, I am making something completely custom for that person, so it's extra meaningful to them. I find that very fulfilling. I would love to make them both a career one day. I just hope God grants me the opportunities for that to happen. And that being said...

Attention Readers!!
If you, or anyone you know, has an event coming up (birthday, wedding, bridal shower, baby shower, etc.) and would like a custom invitation, please consider me! I would love to work with you to create something that is truly unique for your occasion! I can do the design and the printing! And since I am just starting out, I am sure I can cut you a great deal!

Also, if you are in need of a cake, I may be willing to take on that as well!

I have three more big projects coming up that I am doing for Monica's baby shower. First, I am making custom wall art for the baby room which will spell the baby's name... which is Landry by the way! Then, of course, is the baby shower cake. This is the first cake I am doing for a really large crowd, and I have to with it drive 4 hours in the car with it... in August... in Louisiana! So wish me luck!  Also, I will be taking Monica's maternity pictures. I will be posting these projects in a few weeks after the baby shower!

Until then, I leave you with a few pictures from the old ol' Monica and Emily college days! I miss you, Monica!
