2010 Artful Holiday Gift Guide from Momental Designs

Well it is that time again, when we are all racing around to find the perfect gift for each person on our list.  I personally am a fan of finding the useful but unusual.  I also attempt to draw out the artist in each gift I give…so this year my gift guide is full of […]


An Artful Life – My love, our life, the story…

Today is THE day.  Even though we are preparing for a flurry of celebrations over the next few weeks, today is the real day to celebrate.  10 years ago today two kids embarked on the adventure of their lives.  Adam and I said I DO, to what has been a crazy ride…one that I never […]


An Artful Life/Artful Admirations – Stephanie Elizabeth Designs

Today’s post is a combination of An Artful Life and Artful Admirations.    Through a look into my home I would like to introduce you to the work of the artist behind one of my most prized art collections.  Years ago when I first began my business I traveled to Art shows locally selling my stationery.  […]


Renewal Inspirations – Depression Glass and Vintage Linens

An inpromptu trip to a local Antique market last weekend was all I needed to get inspired.  Last week I announced that The Hubby and I are planning a wedding vow renewal bash.  I must admit settling on a color palette has been difficult for me.   Wandering around the Antique Center I was repeatedly drawn […]


An Artful Life – New look, new photos!

The day I have been waiting for, losing sleep over and after hours prepping for is finally complete! Shane East lugged his gear to the studio and set up a traveling photo studio to capture nearly 1500 shots just in the first day(more to come on Thursday). The studio was a mess of paper, paint […]

An Artful Life – new look, new logo!

For the past several weeks I have been working feverishly on a new logo for Momental Designs. It has proven to be a big undertaking to design something for myself. As most designers will tell you it is extremely difficult to conceive personal design work with a good amount of objectivity. I must admit to […]


An Artful Life – A Momental Celebration Part II

To continue from 2 weeks ago as promised…. After our spa afternoon I surprised everyone with dinner at Ruth’s Chris. I had been frantically planning this very small, but very detailed evening for weeks and worked very closely with the fabulous Dominick to ensure every detail was just perfect. I wanted everyone to experience a […]

Several of my recent brides […]
