A new business venture for me -

I am in the process of starting my new online business (part-time/on the side) kind of thing ~ making custom/handmade wedding invites. I made these invites for my bro-in-law and sis-in-law to be for their upcoming destination wedding to Hawaii. They gave me an idea and a sketch and I went with it. Each invite was individually water colored painted by me. The phenomenal response to those invites was the driving force behind my trying this new endeavor. I am making a website and and etsy shop - hopefully I will be fully ready to go this week. Cross your fingers for me....and wish me luck.

My biz will be called: CrazyStokes Designs......unique custom wedding invitations -

Here is a glance at the invites I made for Dane and Jess:

Our new "Liquor Cabinet"

Here is our makeshift liquor cabinet....I'm thinking of painting the wall behind the shelves in some interesting geometric patterns and or adding some witty vinal wording about drinking...we'll see.

Here are BETTER pics Iof the quilt I made for a co-worker's coming baby!!! Using my crazy shortcut method - I modified it a bit - but they loved the doggie theme...considering their new boy's middle name will be Labrador!
