In the early summer of 2000 – a dream became reality. Grace Armour, together with Joanna Armour and Jeannie West – put their talents together and created “Great Turtle Creations of Mackinac Island.” The products were designed for brides who were choosing Mackinac Island for their weddings. After also seeing the demand for note cards relating to Mackinac Island, a note card sidelines was established with Jeannie West as the exclusive artist for this enterprise.

A bride wrote about her wedding in the Mackinac Wedding Guide of 2005."Well in advance of our wedding, we sent out "Save the Date" notices, along with information from the Mackinac Island Tourism Bureau regarding lodging, activities and points of interest. We thought our guests would want to make a mini vacation of our wedding weekend. We were right! Sending the "Save the Date" notices generated a great deal of interest from family and friends. I also obtained absolutely gorgeous invitations from Grace Armour of Great Turtle Creations. The ones we chose contained a beautiful vellum overlay with white satin ribbon and featured a watercolor scene of a bride and groom in a wedding carriage . . . they also provided matching wedding programs, thank you cards and place cards.”
