Surely a bonding experience is to collaborate with your daughter/bride to be on the printed materials for her wedding. The location was a place that is very near and dear to our family. I vacationed here with my family from the early 1970’s and when we all had our own families we continued the tradition with our parents. Almost 50 years of summer memories. I provided the raw material and she created the magic with Adobe Illustrator and her amazing design skills.
Additionally, I created prints with antique lace that had been worn by my mother, aunt and myself at our weddings and was subsequently worn by my daughter.
And finally, I am working fast to preserve the quickly fading wedding flowers
All this shows that even in the midst of planning a big event I still managed to seek ways to be creative and carve out experiences that satisfy my artistic yearnings. BUT it also highlights to me that it’s time to refocus! Happy Fall!
