Happy Halloween!

I had to post a few of my favorite jack-o-lantern photos. This is the first year I didn't get a pumpkin and carve it but I'm living vicariously through the people who were creative enough to do these! Have a fun and safe Halloween everyone!

Sorta like the one I did in college (below)-- I should've added the beer cans!

Last, but not least!

2008 Holiday Cards!

The holidays are right around the corner and it's definitely not too early to start thinking about your holiday cards! I am working on some new designs that I'll post soon, but in the meantime please contact me if you are interested in custom holiday cards. There are several great online resources to order holiday cards, but there's nothing like one that has been designed especially for you. I have talked to several people who ordered theirs from an online photo gallery last year and ended up getting the same one from other people. It's like showing up at an event wearing the same dress as someone else! At least that's how I think of it :) If you want your card to stand out this year, give me a call! Stay tuned for some new designs, but for now here are a few from last year:

Gorgeous bouquets made of clay!

I read a post on from Miss Pineapple who blogged about her flowers from her wedding. I saw the photos first and thought "Wow, those are gorgeous." Then I read the post and found out they aren't real-- they are made of clay!! How unbelievably cool is this?! I was SO sad the day after my wedding when the calalillies in my bouquet started to die, and even more when I realized I had gone on my honeymoon and forgot to ask someone to preserve it. I called my mom from Hawaii and she said they were starting to rot (hello, GROSS) but she did save the roses and would dry them for me. Today I'm not exactly sure where that mess of a dried bouquet is, but more than likely it was trashed because that's what it looked like... trash. Here's a pic of it on my wedding day in all it's glory:

Anyway, here are a few photos of the incredibly beautiful clay bouquets made by DK Designs. Check out her Etsy store here and her blog here.

Happy Birthday, John!

New baby announcement

My good friend D from high school had her second baby in August, and I was thrilled when she asked me to design her baby announcements! I loved what we ended up with last year for her first baby so I knew this one would be a fun project. We tossed around several ideas back and forth until one day she said "You know, I have your Christmas card on my fridge and I love it... Could we make that a baby announcement?" So with a few tweaks here and there, below is what we ended up with for baby Piper. Is she not the cutest?!? Congrats to B & D on their new cutie pie, and to J who is now a big brother! I love you guys.
