art work galore


I have been super busy juggling many projects while trying to continue on with my purging and reorganizing. Yesterday I got a bug and rearranged some furniture but I like it much better this way and I have a space to put all the little clutter that tended to gather between our recliners.

Above is the super cute banner I got to make for Kristin. I loved working with her, she basically said, aqua, yellow, red, polka dots and vintage kids and let me do whatever I wanted. I love that kind of loose guidelines and think my best work comes out when allowed a but of leeway. Kristin said she screamed when she saw it, which makes me happy. It is now installed in her blog and a matching one on her Etsy. Next up is some fun polka dotted business cards to match.

Its been kind of cool to have clients that want more collateral to go with the blog and Etsy banners I make. Natasha originally asked me to design a new blog banner/ logo for her and then ran out of cards and return address labels so we did those too. She is going to have a whole set of yummy matching goodies once the new things arrive. I was so excited to design address labels for her that I made some for myself ( its been on my To Do list for a while) and then I made some Blythe themed ones for my BFF Sharon. I just get so exciting trying out a new product. I am trying to narrow my source for printed stickers and I have samples coming from one company but Jenn and I tracked down this company on Etsy to order her round seals. The company is called KittyCrossBones, maybe you have heard of her. The stickers she printed up for Jenn from my work turned out so cute and she was great to work with. Right now she is having 30% off for Saturday Night Special. Fun!

I guess all of this was kind of a long way around to saying that while redoing my website is on the back burner right now (because Brian and I are so busy) I am finally updating my portfolio. Its a tedious process so I do not really look forward to doing it but I have a new pool of work that I am very proud of so I want and need to get it done. I will post when I have it up.

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
