RIFLE Design: Anna Bond

I feel blessed to be surrounded by multitudes of talented, driven people in my life. The other day I read a post from Kerin Rose about how her studded sunglasses adorn Rhianna in her latest music video, my dear friend Dirk called me last week from the road — he is currently touring the country with Demi Lovato as her personal photographer, and my mom, who I am always so proud of, is using her 40+ years of experience in elementary education to write her own book. With this kind of inspiration to succeed surrounding me, how could I not consistently strive to create? These folks (and many more) inspire me on a daily basis. Enter: Anna Bond...

Her specialized wedding concept and stationary company, RIFLE Design, has taken off at 100 mph. Her body of work is distinctive – each design is markedly different from the next yet always connects back to the cohesive and undeniably enchanting aesthetic of her artwork. Her pieces tend to carry a woodland theme, which includes a myriad of forest creatures, country landscapes, Victorian-inspired flowers, and happy little trees (yes, I am having a Bob Ross moment).

Did you think that was all? Nope! Here are some original pieces, which debuted at the female-powered craft and cupcake bazaars that a few lady friends and I created called Pinklight Bazaar. I hope Anna will compile them into a children's book someday...

Anna is also an established album art and concert poster guru here in Orlando and beyond. Here's her install from a music-themed exhibition, "Rock Walk," that I curated for the Florida Music Festival back in 2007...

She is also a regular contributor to OnceWed's DIY projects. I remember helping her make a similar version of the mason jar centerpieces below, for her own beautiful wedding just over a year ago!

Speaking of Anna's wedding, can we talk about how incredible the cake she designed looked (and tasted)?!

Oh...and did I mention that we bake pies and wear aprons, too? Yeah, we do...
