Announcement   As seen on "Style Me Pretty", Mementos are handmade wedding invitations, invitation covers, and save the dates. Each collage is truly handmade, one at a time, for your special day. Pleasing to hold in your hand each collage is a meticulous design, reflecting the natural elements of beauty and the delicacy of materials from which they are made; you feel the artisan's hand and marks.

I age the elements of some cards: furling or ragged edges, a purposeful fold, cracks, tears, teacup rings, splotches, rumplings, frayed blooms, worn patina—and hidden treasures, keepsakes from trips abroad suggest their being well-loved, and speak to one of life's truly wonderful ups, your special day; create an appeal to the vintage and rustic.

Mementos hint at life as a work in progress, which turns another chapter with your special day. Novel intricacy is displayed with the use of flowers’ delicacy, loveliness, gold’s allure. Flowers used on the collages are largely from my garden, collected in season, dried and/or pressed, so an offering may often be seasonal but I will be more than happy to custom design a card, depending upon availability, with a flower of your choosing. Worn spines mimic books; stories, told and under way. Ribbon bookmarks evoke a book in mid-read. Leaves are butterflies.

The core of Mementos is handmade, one-of-a-kind collages created in the form of "wedding invitations and save the dates," by artisan Judy O'Rourke. Most designs, however, are suitable for any occasion, event, or purpose.

Options abound so please contact us for your custom requirements.

Thank you for your interest.

What gorgeous cards! They're somehow nostalgic but realistic all at once. Beautiful!
