Invites / Gifts

Collaged containers filled with wish tickets and surprises

Invitations for private and corporate clients are my specialty. No event is too small: 10 boxed invites for a 90th birthday celebration OR too large: 600+ treasure map boxes for the opening of McCall Hall at Seattle Center. Please contact me at for an appointment to view additional samples and chat about your invitation/gift project. I look forward to hearing from you!

    • Hi Mary Ann – I’d love to create a pin cushion for you! Right now I’m on a 3 week road trip, returning home on July 27. I have many ribbons choices available and can send you photos when I get back – the pin cushions are $30 (shipping and handling are included in this cost).
      Please email me at if you are interested in seeing ribbon samples and having me create a custom pin cushion for you. Warm regards, Maude
