Captain Potter’s Pizza Party Invites

To thank my friends for their encouragement and loyalty throughout the year, for my birthday, I always throw them an outrageously fun party. Sometimes it’s an afternoon in the town, other times it’s a crazy night in the city—but this year, I hosted a low key pirate themed costume party at home! It was like being 12 again, with the addition of adult punch and better pinata stuffing. And I designed my own cute invitations to get people jazzed on Facebook! Visit my photo blog, Pistol Pix, to see pictures and read heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this year amazing! Visit Pistol Pix

We’ve been growing everyday since by taking on the responsibilities of not only producing ideas, but running a website, marketing promotions, creating packaging and selling our products. Take a peek into our handcrafted lifestyles for DIY tutorials, fabulous fine art ideas, and handcrafted wares. Visit CatfightCraft.com

Get a Custom Wedding Invitation Design

If you find yourself struggling to turn ideas into designs at an affordable rate—let me help! I’m a great Visual Designer who creates beautiful fonts and illustrative layout designs. Most recently, my brother and his fiancée were happily married November 8, 2014, and I had the pleasure of designing their wedding package! Working together, we created vintage-inspired paisley flowers to match the cursive font on the invites, reception cards and RSVP’s. It was a cute twist on the traditional fall flower theme!

Leather Bracelets by Dad—on Etsy

Dad’s a Natural

My Dad, James Potter, has picked up some hobbies over the years, but he’s a natural with the leather crafts. He cuts, stains, punches, hand sews, carves, paints and stamps hides to create one-of-a-kind goodies. His minimalist wallets, carved notebook covers, functional knife sheaths and handmade bracelets are one-of-a-kind due to natural variations in leather, how the skin accepts stain, and the unique artwork Dad adds to create a mood in each piece.
