We ♥ Art - Part 2


Domestically Challenged, Three Bay B Chicks, and I'm Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor have come together and created We Art week to celebrate art and being creative! And if that wasn't fun enough, by linking your We Art post to Mr. Linky on their blogs, you will be entered to win one of SEVEN prizes up for grabs!

First, thank you for all the amazing comments on my photography yesterday!!! It's such a wonderful feeling when something you've worked hard at is appreciated! Also, if you haven't checked out all the other
We Art posts through Mr. Linky you definitely should!! There are some amazingly talented adults and kids out there!

Today, I'm going to share my second favorite creative outlet - WEDDINGS! I'm lacking photos of a lot of things because my laptop crashed a few weeks ago and I haven't received the retrieved data back yet, but I'm going to do my best to share what I do have photos of!

I did so many things myself for my own wedding, but I'll just share a few! I designed, printed and assembled our programs for the church.

I designed our wedding album. (I used Blurb to print the album - they're fabulous! And I should mention that the photography shown in the book is obviously not mine since it was my wedding!)



And I designed our Thank You cards.I also designed my cousin's and sister's Thank You cards for their weddings. (All 3 of these Thank You cards were printed through Vista Print.)
All photos used in the above card are my own.

I did so many things for my sister's wedding, but unfortunately the pictures were on my laptop and I haven't received the retrieved data back yet. I did her programs, place cards, shower invitations, shower and wedding favors and rehearsal dinner invitations, just to name a few!

Here are some pictures of the favors and favor tags I made for her bridal shower.

I couldn't find a copy of her shower invitation, but it was very similar to the rehearsal dinner invitations that I designed and printed for her also.

So, my secret's out! I love creating things for weddings! I had a lot of fun doing it for myself and love getting creative for family and friends, but I have no design background and would never claim to be an amazing designer, nor would I ever do it for a living (except for the photo albums).

However, my very best friend is an AMAZING DESIGNER! And in the spirit of art and creativity, you should most definitely check out her website, blog and Etsy shop!

Wow!
We Art week was so much fun! I hope you all enjoyed my posts and have stopped by Domestically Challenged, Three Bay B Chicks, and I'm Living Proof that God Has a Sense of Humor to see all the other creative entries too!
