Compelled to Create

Like many women, I've been compelled to create since I was a little girl. Growing up in Minnesota, I would spend the long winters indoors sketching, coloring, painting & dreaming. In high school I spent 90% of my time in the art department. After taking some time off between HS & college (and do I have stories that would curl your hair!) I attended the University of Iowa, majoring in Medieval History and Art. Not receiving a degree that would actually get me a JOB (....Medieval History may be fascinating, but not very practical.....) I became a professional Pastry Chef.

Even though I have loved my career as a Pastry Chef, through the years I have had many ideas of things I have wanted to create. I’ve had a lifelong obsession with beautiful fabric and have been collecting velvets and brocades for years, not knowing exactly what I would do with them, but SURE I would think of something! One day I was browsing a second hand store when I came across a couple of vintage celluloid purse handles. I bought them and said to myself “I could make handles like these out of wood & paint them in all sorts of designs.”

Now that I have retired from the food industry (after having made many great friends and having all kinds of adventures), I have finally resolved to jump off the deep end and start making my living from my artwork. I had already started a graphic arts business offering calligraphy & wedding invitation design (‘Calligraphics Studio’), so I have decided to branch out and offer purses and accessories as well, launching ‘Midnight Revels Designs’ to merge all my endeavors. More offerings to come!

Thanks for reading my story; have fun shopping, and please wish me luck! If you like my work, check out my Facebook page: www.facebook.com/MidnightRevelsDesigns

    Obsessed with Medieval/Renaissance history & art, I have been drawing & painting since my first "paint-by-number" set at age 8. I tend to walk off the beaten path & my work reflects this tendency! See more of my designs at www.midnightrevels.com

Frequently asked questions
What is your turn around time for wedding invitations?

Turn around time is approximately 2 months, depending upon how many orders I have before yours. If I am not too busy, sometimes I can rush an order. There is a rush fee of $35 for wedding invite orders needed in less than 1½ months.

Can I order Invitations with no Save the Dates, or Reply cards?

Yes! You can order any configuration you need, Just convo me & I will give you a custom price.

Can I change the color/design/wording of the invitations?

Yes! My invites are completely custom made, so I can design something just for you. If you can dream it, I can design it! Click on the “request a custom order” and we can discuss your ideas.

Can I order less than 50 invitations?

Depending upon the design, I might be able to make an exception. Can’t hurt to ask, right?

Do you ship outside the US?

Yes, but best if you inquire about shipping prices if you are outside of the US. Invitations can be heavy, if you are ordering 100 or more, so shipping costs will reflect that fact.

Can I change the purse design?

The purses that are listed are already made, so they cannot be altered. However, I can design a purse just for you. Just convo me with your details.

Can I return a purse that I commissioned?

I do not accept the return of custom designed purses, unless there is shipping damage (which must be documented by a photograph of the damaged packaging).
