merry christmas - 2011

merry christmas from us. this year i went with a sloppy cursive (handwritten by me-- no fonts here!), hand-painted watercolor kind-of-thing. and confetti, of course! and i'm just obsessed with the screen-printed woodgrain paper i used as envelope liners. more of those to come!

modern art from the vatican

favorite art from the vatican. after looking at beautiful, realistic oil paintings of saints for dozens of rooms, you get a little modern art cleansing before you see the sistine chapel.

In order from top to bottom, henri matisse, piero dorazio, henri matisse and giuseppe capogrossi.

50th anniversary invites - woodville flora & fauna

went to woodville last weekend for jon's grandparents 50th anniversary party. we had so much fun and lots of encounters with animals.

here's the invite i did! his grandmother borrowed this dress from a friend. And for the party, his grandpa got the same military-style haircut.. how cute is that? wish i had a photo of that.



for the party, jon's mother gathered these wildflowers from a friend's yard and we made about a dozen arrangements from the stash. so pretty... i want a garden that produces these kind of blooms.



and here's a cow in their front yard...



and me & chelsey riding a horse...



and some hummingbirds! there must have been more than 25, but these little guys are hard to capture.
