So, I just had to share! Is this not the most amazing one year old birthday party you have ever seen!? My friend Tori of Sitting in a Tree knows a thing or two about throwing a good party. I was so excited when she asked me to design the invitations for her daughter Lucca’s one year birthday. I just knew it was going to be amazing. Winter wonderland theme meets flora and fauna!!? Yes, please!
…yes, that’s my daughter trying to swipe the deer from Lucca’s cake.
Just to gush on Tori for a minute: she is one of the sweetest and most creative people I know. Aside from being a creative genius herself, she has been one of the biggest supporters of my work, really, since the very beginning. I remember meeting her for the first time at an art show I was a part of. An art show she actually curated. I’m not even sure how she knew about me or my art, but I remember just being really excited for an opportunity to showcase my work. It was back in 2006 I think, and only the second real show that I had ever done. From Tori, came countless commissioned projects and referrals. And I think she is the person that has purchased more art from me than anyone else in history! I’ll forever be thankful for that. And i’ll always remember her being a part of my “beginning”. Not to say that I have made it by any means. But we’ve come a long way…..and i’m glad that today we are still a part of each others lives….supporting each other in our creative endeavors and celebrating new life in our little ones! That Lucca Valentine is to die for. Anyway….all this to say….I’m really thankful for friends like Tori, and all the people that have encouraged me and supported me over the years. Including a lot of you readers who I know have been keeping up with me for a long time! I so appreciate you!!
