Giving Each Event its Own Unique ID with Inspired Designs

This month’s “Mom of the Month” is an inspiring graphic designer for just over ten years. She also enjoys making and building things. She is humble to say that she can’t draw to save her life, but has a creative side in many other ways.

This rings true as soon as you see the beautiful creations done by Marissa at ID Inspired Designs who is our Mom of the Month.


I had the opportunity to connect with Marissa to get to know more about this great mom and her company.

  1. What does your company do?

We design, print and execute custom paper products for all occasions, such as invitations, loot bags, favor tags, posters, banners and a lot more. We also design, print and execute paper products for businesses, this is secondary though.

  1. When did you start your business?

I started this business about eight years ago.

  1. How did you come up with the idea?

I designed invitations and paper products for occasions in my life and I had many friends and family members who wanted me to do the same for them. With each job came another referral and before I knew it, I was a full blown business.


  1. How did you come up with the business name?

ID is short for identity as I feel everything such as an event and business should have its own unique identity. Inspired Designs came to me since it is my clients who inspire and challenge me to bring their designs to life.

  1. What do you hope your business accomplishes?

To be able to execute every clients design to the way they picture it. I want to be able to reflect what they see in their minds to their eyes.


  1. Where would you like to see your business in 5 years?

I would love to be doing this full time, to have a dedicated work space and be able to spend all my work time executing what makes my heart sing.

  1. As a busy working mom, how do you find the time to balance it all?

Marissa stated that she sadly does not think she does this very well as she works full time and in her spare time is when she executes designs for her clients. However, I know that even with her busy schedule she still finds time to spend it with her loving son. They even have mom and son dates where they do something fun together outside of the home. So in my books she balances it really well and is humble about it.

  1. Lastly, how can people connect with you if they are interested in ordering from you?

Interested clients can email me or connect with me on our Facebook page.

When I asked Marissa what else she would like our readers to know, she stated, “We can work with any idea and any budget. I love to be challenged and I really do love what I do.”


Momma Braga is extremely proud to feature Marissa of ID Inspired Designs as this month’s “Mom of the Month” as she is such a humble, kind and extremely talented. We have used her services before and the outcome has always been above expectations. Marissa is also a great mom who is always there for her son and he is always number one in her books.


Thank you Marissa for your time and wishing you many years of success! Keep on dreaming and everything is possible!

Until next time……Happy Parenting!

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day moms of past, present and future!

Here I am on my second Mother’s Day and it feels great! Today is the day that we celebrate and appreciate moms for all that they do and are to us. Of course we should be appreciating our mothers every day but it can be hard to do. So today, is our friendly reminder to tell them how great and awesome they are!

I was excited to just spend the day with my daughter and husband as our family time means the world to me. I did get some ‘me time’ with a relaxing pedicure and got beautiful purple orchids but the one gift that I wasn’t expecting was the feeling of proudness!


It all started with the card that I got from my daughter which said: “Mom, you take good care of me! You’re the best mom in the whole world! And I hope you’re proud of that, ‘cause I sure am! Happy Mother’s Day.”

After fighting back the tears, it hit me! Yes, I should be proud!

As I look into her eyes and watch her smile melt my heart, I realized that I am contributing to who she was becoming. I am an influencer, role model, and teacher. As a mom we are so much and we give ourselves every single day. But yet, I know I am always doubting if I am doing a good job as a mom. But today I have realized that I am doing a great job, as I know that I am doing my very best for her every single day.

I can see my daughter’s loving, caring and full of life energy develop through each passing day. I am proud to see her grow, learn and come into her own personality. This is why I am extremely proud to be called ‘Mom’.

It took a little card to help me realize how truly important Mother’s Day was. For me it will be a day to be proud and to self-appreciate the most beautiful, rewarding, stressful and tiring role of my life; motherhood!

To all the moms, know that you are awesome and we are all thankful for your impact in our lives. Enjoy your day today and don’t forget to be proud of yourself and appreciate what you have accomplished!

Until next time…….Happy Parenting!
