BOHO – Bohemian Style Burlap and Lace Weddings

One of the strongest new trends in Modern Wedding Styles is the BOHO or Bohemian Gypsy style.  Simple, loose, fun, with a strong element of DIY and touches of burlap and lace.  I think it’s the juxtaposition of burlap’s rough, simple earthy texture and lace’s elegance, refinement and romance that sums this trend up best. BOHO Bohemian Trendy Stylish Chic Burlap and Lace Wedding Invitations Set Vintage lace bits and pieces tied around romantic gathered bouquets.  Escort seating cards clipped onto lace strung from trees and mix n match patterns, old lace table cloths and anything else that warms your heart – make for a warm and welcoming wedding celebration. This design collection can be found in our “Modern Style Paperie” Store at Zazzle:  LINK TO COLLECTION HERE


I have personally have had an addiction to gathering beautiful antique laces.  One of my favorite things to do each summer when we lived in San Diego was to visit the Hand Made lace exhibits at the Del Mar Fair.  The incredible arts of tatting, bobbin lace and other timeless, beautiful crafts are being kept alive for generations yet to come.  Being able to design something that will help keep that love alive is a special joy for me!

New Color Way for Les Fleur Pavoine

By request, I’ve created a new colorway for this very popular collection.  In the near future there will be additional color ways available including: Grey, Rose Pink, Light Blue, and Teal.

This is hand painted, watercolor artwork of flowers I painted from life.  I’ve worked it into a “French Antique Wallpaper” feel so that while it is new art it has the feel of vintage antiquity.   Some of the elements included are antique handwriting, hand painted leaf swirl border with an interior that has a velum look.  I’ve also included botanical butterflies, printer’s ornament decorative etchings and other vintage elements.

These are set up for weddings, but you can change the text to use them for any party, celebration or business corporate event.

Home From the CHA Show & Very Inspired!

NOTE:  JUST CLICK ON ANY IMAGE TO GO TO SEE IT LARGER IN MY ZAZZLE STORE.

CHA, the Craft & Hobby Association Show was held in Los Angeles this year at the end of January.  It is always one of my favorite shows to attend.  It is filled with such incredible creativiy – both in the art being used to create the craft, scrapbooking and other kits that are offered and in the creativity of the designers who are creating projects from that artwork.

Designers use existing products to create new and fun crafts with.  Their interpretation of the artwork is incredibly fun and diverse.  There were “make and takes” every where you turned.  Displays of projects and extravagant backdrops or centerpieces such as paper dressed mannequins were all around.  Unfortunately my camera malfunctioned and I don’t have my pictures to share with you.  I will ask my daughter if I can take a peek at her pictures and see if I can add later.

I didn’t get to do as much wandering around as I usually do.  My time was mostly filled with meetings – some of which were very productive meetings (so I’m not whining, LOL!)  The other place the bulk of my time was spent was getting to spend time with some very special artist friends – you know who you are!  My artist friends inspire me so much.  I love seeing what they’re doing, discussing the industry and our goals going forward.  I’m friends with some VERY motivating people!

If you’re snowed in, how about beating the boredom by crafting something with all of those supplies you have stashed away?  How about pulling out your scrapbook papers and creating 5 or 5 greeting cards to have ready to use when the need arises?  I love to make a mess just once and end up with lots of goodies to use later throughout the year.  Try making some matching gift tags to add to your birthday or Christmas gifts during the next year.  It’s a wonderful way to pass a cold and miserable day with the warm sense of joy creating brings.

Kids driving you nuts?  Bring out your craft goodies and set them to work creating.  You might be amazed how much they enjoy the time and remember it fondly decades later (as I do my Mom’s rainy day projects!)

I thought I would also share some of my newest invitations in my two Zazzle stores.  If you know a young bride that is getting married this year, or a new mother welcoming a baby, I would love if you would pass my website along to her!
