Pat turns 60 today! She is a special person to me and has been a part of my family and {more than that} a friend, a really good friend for a long time, pretty much my whole life – though I'm not sure I realized it until I was in college. We have traveled together, cried together, laughed together, made art together, struggled through life's challenges together, created happy memories together – we have talked, shared & confided in one another. She is probably one of the most understanding and giving people I know. I love that she is always willing to laugh at herself … I could go on and on. What a open-minded, artful, sublime human being she is! Happy Birthday Pat!
I was honored to create this fun fiesta style invitation for her party this weekend. Don't you just love the look of colorful papel picados hanging everywhere? It lifts your spirits instantly and brings great energy to a party. Arriba!
