new(ish) stuff

Just a not-so-recent project I designed – baby shower invitations for a dear friend. I kind of got to go crazy with this one since I was one of the hosts of the event. I knew I didn't want to do something too ordinary or sugary sweet and loved adding in all the hand-drawn elements and type. It turned out fun and bright – just like the guest of honor herself!

I'm always looking for new ways to get inspired in my design work! Liberty, based in London, has been open since 1875. Their fabrics include rich, saturated colors and gorgeous patterns – all heavily drawn from their own vast archive of designs influenced by the Art Nouveau and Arts and Crafts movements. It's a great place to get some fresh ideas for color palettes for stationery and wedding invitations.

autumn by the sea

Sooo, this has been a bit of a crazy year – not in a bad way, just jam packed. Every week, I think I'll have time to post, and it just doesn't seem to happen! I've got some fun things in the works, so stay tuned. And, huge apologies for the 10 months of radio silence. I'll be better, I swear!

Above are some photos I took last fall at Fripp Island in South Carolina. The beach in November is so beautiful!

Crane & Co. contacted me over the summer about submitting some holiday photo card designs and I jumped at the chance. After submitting, I anxiously awaited the results. Seriously, just to be asked is a crazy dream for me as a stationer and designer. When they told me that my designs had been chosen to sell this fall, I think I went nuts. Eeeeeeeeeeeee! So, peeps, it is official, and not a joke – my designs are now for sale at You can check them out above and at the Crane & Co. website with direct links to the designs below each image.

le mariage

Hey! So, the latest Minted design challenge is one of my most favorites! I've been doing watercolor designs a while for clients, but I thought I would amp it up for a wedding invite design-a-thon. I had so much fun painting and then pairing the art with clean, fresh layouts. My entries all include hand-drawn or hand-painted art and are pictured above, from top: Pollen, Eldorado, Obstreperous, Oceanic and Hemingway.

Please make sure to check out all the fantastic designers and entries in minted's contest, and please rate as many as you can when you have a moment! (Hint: If you'd like, you can sort by designer at the upper left of the page above the design images. Mine are at the top of p. 15.)

baby boy

Aww! These are photos of some baby announcements I did recently for one of my god sons. I kept things masculine with fresh nautical-inspired stripes and paper-bag style envelopes. Such a fun project!
