••••••ORDERING INFO ••••••

YES! I’m accepting orders for invitation boxes.
I will be setting up Etsy ordering in a few days. I’ll put up links for the various designs and you can order right then and there for the style you like best.

In addition trying to make this a full-time job, I’m teaching three ART NITES painting classes each month, and I’ve scheduled a few shows this year, too. Soon I’m hoping to finally get actual items onto my Etsy store: I’ll have my invitation keepsake boxes, and I’ll be featuring jewelry, my entrapped creatures, dragons and gargoyles, Wiccan stars and some Harry Potter themed items like sun catchers and key rings. And as always, my little 2×3 boxes which are so popular. These have dragons, moon, sun and stars, butterflies, fairies OR seashells OR pressed flowers. At only $25.00 these make great bridesmaid gifts, hostess thank you’s and are a great birthday gift.

For invitation box ideas, you can browse the boxes I have here, or if you have a certain type of design in mind you can forward your images on to me. It usually takes me 4-6 weeks to finish, so please be patient, thanks. You can email me with questions.

PRICING:  The boxes are usually between $125.00 – $200.00 (depending on style and features) + shipping. They usually take me about 4-6 weeks to complete once I have the invitation. Smaller boxes WITHOUT BORDER start at $95.00, wall hangings $65-$95.00. Small “hostess” size boxes start at $25.00, sun catchers start at $6.00.

SELECTION:  You can send me the invitation wrapped in cardboard to prevent dents. I can choose the colors or I can pick out several samples and email you pics, next to the invitation. You can pick which type of design from the various ones on different pages. Just describe it and I’ll know.

For Bat Mitzvahs I can add in little charms if she has a favorite hobby or sport or if she’s doing a community service project. I also have Star of David and Hamsa charms. I make the fabric padded insert (on the box bottom) to match the colors used in the invitation and glass (these are an additional $15.00 each).

SHIPPING:  I wrap them in bubble, double box them and they ship just fine. You can either have it shipped directly to the recipient or to yourself. If you live in Northeastern CT, some areas of Rhode Island or some parts of Massachusetts, maybe we can come up with a place to meet instead.

PAYMENT:  I set up a reserved (private sale) order on Etsy after I finish the piece. It includes several pics of the work, so you can be sure it’s exactly what you want before you pay anything. I take Paypal, credit cards with the Square, in person or by phone.

Just email me to get started!

  1. Hi Donna! It was nice to speak with you today. I’m putting up extra images tonight of my pressed flower boxes so that you can see them. I’m also adding an email link so people don’t have to be confused as to how to contact me. Thanks so much! Anna

    1. Hi Lynn, I don’t usually treat the flowers in my designs. I DO get the leaves and other greenery sprayed green, otherwise they seem to turn right away. Yes, the flowers will turn somewhat. The ones I have are dried for at least a year in acid-free materials and kept out of the sun. In my experience it’s the acid that’s in the paper (newsprint, old phone books) that leaches into the freshly picked flower and accelerates the browning. when using acid free this doesn’t happen.I can spray the flowers but they end up with a sheen or slight spotting on them.

  2. Hi Anna. I’ll be sending you my niece’s wedding invitation on Monday and can’t wait to see what you do with it for her April 22nd wedding! Thanks for consenting to create a beautiful moment for Elizabeth and Pete! – Cheryl
