I was completely honored, when I was approached by Family Compass in Dallas to create the invitations for their 25th Anniversary year Legends and Lights event that also coincided with National Child Abuse Prevention Month. The event was held at Altitude | W Dallas and was emceed by local WFAA television personality Colleen Coyle. The evening was a chance to mingle with local legends and celebrities and bring awareness to children in need and the services available to them through Family Compass. Included in the evening: hor d’oeuvres, cocktails, silent and live auctions, followed by dancing and entertainment.
Continued success to Family Compass as they continue their mission to build healthy families across North Texas, by preventing child abuse and neglect. Please visit Family Compass and consider making them part of your personal mission.
When I was approached by The da Vinci School in Dallas, Texas to design the invitations to their 2016 Wonderland Gala, I was very honored by the trust placed in me. The da Vinci School is a non-profit organization with a well rounded learning oriented program with emphasis on science that was founded in 1987. The Gala is one of their largest fund raising events that is held every year to provide for various school improvements, equipment, learning materials and to increase the general fund. The theme for the 2016 Gala is “da Vinci in Wonderland”.
With a theme in hand, the design process began. The final invitation is one of my most favorite designs to date. I wish the school well and look forward to a continued relationship in the future.

It is always an honor when asked to design something special for a child’s birthday party and this one had me bugging out!! Creepy crawlies everywhere for this brother and sister sharing their special days. Who doesn’t remember taking their box or jar outside as a kid and collecting butterflies, bees, caterpillars, ladybugs and the all time favorite lightning bugs. Oh, to be little and carefree!! Enjoy Cooper and Addy, Happy Birthday!!

While designing the Bosworth Family Christmas card for 2011, my original design was intended for a silver foil embossed print on Cranes Lettra in Solar White with a white envelope, lined with black japanese chiyogami paper with gold and silver metallic leaves. However, when I ran into these beautiful papers at Paper Source this afternoon, my design will now be on Neenah Flash Pearl with gold foil embossing and just look what the ivory envelopes will be lined with:
