Just back from a quick trip back home to Ohio to celebrate my nephew’s wedding. It was a beautiful event. The “new” couple are both truly terrific people and they planned and executed a top-notch wedding weekend for everyone.
It was also that oh-so-rare and wondeful occasion when I and all my sisters are all in the same place at the same time. Stories were shared, books recommended and, of course, crafty type ideas were proposed (more on that later).
The newlyweds had asked me to make a few things for the nuptials and I was pleased to say yes.
The wedding was in Granville Ohio (bride’s hometown) but they live in Columbus and wanted to give everyone wedding favors that both reflected the place and included the date so we came up with these coasters.
For the Columbus coaster I just (sorta) matched the font and color of the other text and added in the wedding date.
To create the custom stamp I just followed the steps outlined in a great tutorial at Fuzzimo (which is also a terrific resource for a lot of Photoshop tutorials and free downloads).
They also had me create one (two actually) of my custom signs for their folks celebrating everyone’s weddings!
I was, as I am every time I visit, re-impressed with Columbus. So much going on! Art, culture, architecture and……Saying I have a weakness for pie is an understatement and if you follow me on instagram you know that last time I was there I discovered:
I know some of you may be thinking “ok David, that’s fine but what do they sell? What is the product that this business promotes?”
I’m happy to report the name is true! Pies! Just Pies! Really good pies!!!!!
How could you not love a place named Dough Mama!?
Savory pies! Sweet pies! I was in pie heaven!
If you are ever in Columbus I encourage a full out pie-tour (my newly married nephew will lead you – he’s like the PIEd Piper)
But now I’m back in LA…..home of…….
smog, traffic, drought DONUTS!!!!! Seriously, there is a donut shop on every corner in this town (my diet may not work out as well as I’d hoped).
