We’d much rather death by chocolate, but we are fated to endure death by design instead.

It’s all a bit too much…

Killer paper…

Isn’t it just easier to cry quietly in a corner with sobs muffled, rather than broadcast our pain.  But, we have a flair for the theatric and we need a public stage for our agony.

It’s just not fair…

Gorgeous, unique, and different…

As ever, we think about the lovely embryonic state we were in this morning in bed and wonder why on earth did we bother waking up.  Things were so much easier when we weren’t work.  The spoiling of mornings award goes to Anya Aleksandrova.

We aren’t going to Willy Wonka this ish… this suite for us has been a passport to pain.  It has hurt our hearts, souls and minds it has been more traumatic than the late night news, and self service checkout counters combined.

The passport to pain aka the wedding invitations of Chelsea on John – in fact we felt so bad after seeing this we rewrote the words to Happy.

We feel crappy

Clap along if you feel you can’t handle design truth

We feel crappy

Clap along if you feel like throwing yourself off a roof

We feel crappy

Clap along if you know what crappiness is to you

We feel crappy

Clap along if you feel like drinking what’s you wanna do

Give us an Ivor Novello, a Grammy, a massage, and a cake for that.  At least we can eke out a career and earn some shekels writing lyrics, or writing for food.   We might hate you for your design awesomeness Two if by Sea Studios but you’ve opened the gateway for us to become award winning lyricists, unless you can write songs too – and in that case we’ll be ready to fight MMA style.

The design and photographic glory go to: Two if by Sea Studios

Well what in the Wes Anderson do we have going on here?  We have Camp Tee Pee  Inspired invitation suite that is ridiculously slick. This wedding collateral has caused us collateral damage of the ego kind.

We could compare this to a deadly disease but that is too early a metaphor us to use. Reall wrong even for us. So no comparisons

However, to borrow an inappropriate metaphor from a rapper – they are all the best for inappropriate one liners.

Tore our heart out like Jeffrey Dahmer – thanks for that Juicy J and you can hear the whole wrong.com thing, and get to do some moral posturing by blaming hip hop and listening to Katy Perry’s Dark Horse.

Two hearts uniting should be uplifting but it’s not… when it looks this good (and we didn’t design it) it is blinking depressing

This has taken all our feels
