Today I will be doing portraits at the Snohomish Craft Bazaar at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Snohomish from 10 – 4.
It takes about 30-40 minutes, but the kids don’t really have to sit still. (Oscar definitely did not sit still pretending to clap his hands for 30 minutes!) Portraits are done in watercolor on 9×12 paper. $30 each. There will be lots of other crafters there selling there goods. Come on out and find something for your mamma!
2727 Lake Ave. Snohomish
My little brother got married this past weekend to a beautiful, sweet, Christian gal! I’m so proud! I cannot even tell you how happy I was when they asked me to be creatively involved with making the invitations. It was so much fun, and I really like how it turned out.
I designed a logo and had stamps made to use on the front of the invitation.
This is also why the map is a rather prominent element (hand illustrated map in watercolor with digital elements). Keeping it subtle and casually elegant was important to us, so we avoided any over the top travel theme-y stuff.
Caleb and Angelica came up with the clever wording and had the rad idea of placing a magnet with their photo in each invitation. The “Party Pants” reference on the magnet was something I pulled out of the wording they came up with for the invitation.
One last thing I want to share was a little gift my mom and I put together. We initially got the idea from a baby shower we went to recently where the guests all wrote letters to the little guy for each of his upcoming birthdays. We basically stole that idea. We bought 35 blank greeting cards and then numbered them 1 – 35. Then had all the guests at the bridal shower, the brides maids, the grooms men, the parents of the bride and the groom, and the pastor at the ceremony (also a good friend of the groom) write letters to the happy couple for them to open on each upcoming anniversary. I painted their logo on the top of the box and did a little embellishment inside. Personally, I think this is the most seriously amazing idea ever!
It’s been pretty quiet here on the bookwood for a while now, mostly because of three very noisy reasons I’ve been keeping at home. These little bundles of joy are a riot of crazy fun and daily challenges. Aren’t they cute? I am so very blessed. There will be art on this blog again someday. But for now…revel in the cuteness! They’ll be teenagers before I know it!
Heads up ya’ll! Organized craft at the Open House for those who will: Color Wrapped Hair Comb. Friday the 7th from 2 til 4. I will have the supplies all laid out, all you have to do is show up and make your own beautiful hair piece. $1 suggested donation. I will extend the project hours by request, as long as I don’t run out of supplies.
Thank you to lemonjitters.com for the crafting idea!
