Family Name Signs

My sweet friend Laura requested some name signs for herself and friends of theirs. She gave me some samples, but asked that I create some originals. Her only request was that there be some blue coloring somewhere!

Below are what we came up with. I used some verrry aged wood which looks cool, but was difficult to paint on. The pics don't do the colors justice, but they were really fun to work with!

Anne's wedding pt 2

To continue the narrative of Anne and Kelly's wedding.... She chose early on to go with a fiesta theme. From the invitations, to the flowers to the cake, she did a fabulous job pulling it all together.

You know how those "Mr. and Mrs." signs are all over Pinterest for couples to hold and take a pic with, well I made some for Anne only they said señor and señora!

We also made a sign that said "Uncle Kelly, here comes your bride!" for her nephews to carry down the aisle. Long story short, it only got used at the reception, but they looked super cute carrying it in...

Anne's wedding pt 1

A wonderful friend and sorority sister of mine left me a year ago. :( It was for a boy.

She landed herself a new job and new life in Chicago and we all missed her dearly.

But wonder of all wonders, their jobs unexpectedly brought them back to Houston!! They wasted no time getting engaged and we all got to celebrate in their wedding festivities with them.

Sweet Anne had me paint a few things for her wedding which I'll share later, but I surprised her at a shower with a pencil with her new name.
