My hubby and I welcomed our second child into the world on Friday morning, August 22nd ~ Aiden James. He's absolutely gorgeous and perfect, weighing a whopping 10 pounds and 6.8 ounces, and 22.5 inches long. We're loving being a little family of 4.
This of course will affect how many projects I am able to take on during the months of August, September and October.
Please feel free to contact me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in working with me on a design project so we can discuss whether it's possible and set some realistic goals and deadlines.
Thanks for bearing with me during this exciting - and crazy - season of life!
There are many more baby announcements, wedding & shower invites ~ these are simply the new ones! (take a peek under their specific categories below...and enjoy!)
"Working with Joy on our wedding invitations was, in a word, delightful. I planned my Michigan wedding from across the globe (Kuwait, to be exact) and finding invitations was by FAR the most frustrating part of the process - until, after literally months of searching and coming up empty-handed, I stumbled upon Joy's website. From there, the entire process became not only a breeze, but FUN! I was so pleasantly suprised to find that she would DESIGN something unique especially for us - and when I saw what she had come up with, I was head-over-heels in love with it. I continued to ask Joy to design things for us - from the programs, to the table numbers, to the escort cards, and then the thank you notes - and I was consistently impressed with not only her design but her incredible customer service. Being separated by eight time zones had been a problem for some vendors, but not Joy - she always replied very promptly to my emails and was very flexible with our situation. In the end, my husband and I definitely agreed that she was, by far, our favorite wedding vendor - it wasn't even a contest! I honestly could go on and on about how amazing she was, but I'll end with this - as long as Joy owns Joyful! Designs, we'll be customers!!" ~ Emily & Hesham Al Khamis (Kuwait) "Joyful Design is the reason for the word "EXCELLENCE"! She is someone who has tremendous talent and artistic skill. I tell her what I need and she comes back with exactly that thought. It’s amazing! I love it! It’s like she is in my head! I use her for my ministry, business as well as personal needs and functions. She forms a partnership with her clients, and with this partnership she brings a special expertise: creative designs and colors, attention to detail, proportion, and fine quality in all elements. She is definitely a true professional and would highly recommend her for any design needs." ~ Ansonya Burke, San Antonio (Texas) Owner, Principles in Action Consulting "Thank you so much for the great design work on my wedding announcements. Michael and I were very pleased with the great suggestions and special touch you gave to the announcement message. We eloped so we were excited to get the word out and were super please with the turn around time. Thanks so much...we will certainly recommend your services" ~ Mike & Gwen Murphy, Lake Worth (Florida) "Think of all the things that can be frustrating when working with a company...Joy is the opposite! She is patient and goes out of her way to make sure you're getting what you've envisioned or better! She returns calls/emails quickly, meets or beats deadlines, is kind and friendly, and puts her all into every project! She is easy to work with and you will probably make a new friend in her if you haven't already! Joy's natural talents and abilities along with her amazing customer service help to set her apart from others in the world of graphics and design. You're the best, Joy!" ~ Latonya Esau, Humble (Texas) Owner, From*Me Tees "OH! JOY!! Do I love it?! Um no!! I'M OBSESSED ABOUT IT!! It's breath taking! It's stunning! It's my heart digitized!!! You are just absolutely AMAZING!!! I mean seriously. I knew you would make something incredibly beautiful but this, this is like a dream come true! And now I'm leaking again...yep there it goes. Thank you for taking my jumbled thoughts and somehow finding my heart and bringing it to life. No one else could have done this but you. Wow." ~ Cynthia Sutton, Lansing Owner, Second Nature Baby Wraps "Joy, just thought you’d get a kick out of this …one of my coworkers told me today that she just saw my invitation for the 19th. (Obviously, I sent those out 2 weeks ago.) Apparently her 6 year old daughter got into the mail & opened it up before mom got home. She thought it was so beautiful that she took it to her room and put it up on her "wall for special pictures". So the moral of the story… even children know good design when they see it." ~ Julie Dickert, Holt
"Joy brings more to the table than her artistic talents … she takes ownership of your project, knowing that the finished product reflects on you! I would not have wanted to undertake producing my album without her involved.” ~ Joe Wright, Lansing Musician, Singer & Songwriter
"Joy was amazing to work with. Within days of our first contact she had countless designs for us to look at. She was willing to make any changes that we wanted, usually within an hour or so of us asking. She was very helpful in all of our print work including invitations, wedding programs, maps, table cards, seating chart, and other miscellaneous work. Joy has an amazing eye for design. We would recommend her to anyone!" ~ Brian Msal & Christy Marble, Richmond (Michigan)
"I asked Joy to design a webpage, a yellow page ad, a newspaper ad, and several business cards with a 1 week deadline...she designed everything on time and my project was amazing!!! She worked late nights and was very easy to contact with questions, comments, etc. She designed my webpage exactly how I described it! It was a pleasure to work with her, and I couldn't be happier with my project." ~ Ashley Lawson, Marion (Ohio) Attorney at Law
