I had the good fortune of being hired to work with a Mother of the Bride helping plan her daughter’s wedding in September. The invitations are beautiful William Arthur in blue ink with a spectacular silver swirl design. We decided to go with an italic script in a matching blue ink.
They did turn out well if I say so myself.
I had the good fortune of learning that I am a featured calligrapher on the EAD Library at Elizabeth Anne Designs. This is a work of love by these two lovely ladies who wanted a comprehensive source to plan a wedding no matter where you live. The library has a search function as well as allow for vendor reviews by the people who matter – our clients!
Exciting times! Thank you for the support!
So, I know this was supposed to be posted yesterday for my Environmentally Friendly Friday… but, I did not get to watch C-Span on Tuesday when this aired so I had to watch it this morning.
You know I am a huge supporter of using renewable energy sources (solar and wind) to power our lives, this is why I am supporting Texas Oil Man T.Boone Pickens. Sounds crazy? Keep reading.
This week T. Boone Pickens was in Washington speaking to the senate on his Pickens Plan.
The idea is to end our dependence on foreign oil which stands at 70% currently and replace that with harnessing wind energy from wind farms in the Great Plains for household electricity usage and shifting our use of natural gas to the transportation sector.
Clearly, we are “pushed against a wall” as Mr. Pickens stated and need to make changes quickly. Much of this plan is supported and backed by private funding (yay!) to benefit everyone in the country. I encourage you to visit the site and check out what he has to say.
I was pursuing TheFrock.com in hunt of a fun party dress for a wedding in a few months. I have heard of their wonderful selection in the bridal department, but did not realize they had gowns from celebrity status, couture designers as well as period pieces. I must admit as a vintage shopper (no purchases yet) I find their site extremely reasonably priced for the excellent condition of the gowns.
This one is my new favorite… maybe a bit to glam for this wedding though.
