Wedding Bar Menu - watercolor 11 x 17 inches

A great way to add some fun color and express your personality with the addition of customized art, this one of a kind wedding bar menu done in watercolor on an 11x17 inch sheet of watercolor paper was an easy breezy way for the bride to show her guests she was ready to throw the reception of the year!

Baby's First Year

My little one's first birthday is coming up!  It's amazing how fast things go by when you are a new mom on the go...from walks at the beach with her strapped to me in the baby carrier, to rolling, crawling, laughing, babbling, and growing up before my very eyes.  It is a whirlwind I never could have imagined!  We are so blessed to be the proud parents of our sweet little bear.

Looking forward to creating her Baby Map for the 1st year milestones!  Stay tuned...

Weddings in a Designer's Paradise

It seems these days that all my good friends are getting married, and I just happen to be thinking about all the fun designs just waiting to be created. California during the Summer and Fall is simply wonderful. The mountains hold endless trails full of wild flowers, sandy-tall grass, and towering pines. With wedding time just around the corner,I have been looking for inspiration all around. April and May will bring out cheery brides bubbling with excitement, yellow and pink flower arrangements, tables cards neatly signed and decorated, and lots of beautiful invitations. I am looking forward to all the designing and printing to come.

Letterpressed Stationery for Valentine's Day

Friends and family,

Many of you know I finally started designing and printing letterpressed stationery. Just recently in LA where our "Peach" press lives, I printed for 10 hours straight. The result is beautifully handmade stationery on the finest quality 100% cotton paper. Below you will see fold-over notes to send your friends, loved ones, or just for any old occasion. I have dreamed about this since I was a little girl, and now I am happy to share my work with you. Please enjoy!

Kind regards,

The Roses

$4.50 each
$15.00 / pack of 4 cards - saves $3.00 off singles

These fold-over notes are sweet and simple. "The Roses" is actually a design of 2 sets of roses. 1 set is actually blind embossed and uses no ink. Here, the green roses pop wonderfully, but just to the left the embossed roses hide, adding a unique surprise and touch! Use these cards as your stationery for all occasions, and just to send a note whenever the need arises!
