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!

release the kraken!

Summertime is the best time to discover new cocktails and enjoy sipping on old faves. Pictured above top is the wonderfully named drink, The Kraken, from local Charlotte restaurant Halcyon. It is an ice-cold dirty martini with a dash of squid ink. I have to admit that I wasn't brave enough to order it myself, but I had a sip of my friend's and it was quite tasty. The other drink pictured is a classic pink greyhound – grapefruit juice and vodka – with a juicy orange slice. Those were whipped up and enjoyed by me and my mom on a recent seaside visit to Fripp Island, SC. So yummy!

bridesmaid luncheon

My awesome cousin got married about a month ago, and I designed some Bridesmaid Luncheon invitations that were in keeping with her purple-hued wedding theme. Oh, I love how they turned out – fresh and modern, but still elegant, just like the lovely bride! I used super-thick cotton paper, which really made it special. It was such fun to do this for her – she's about the sweetest gal I know.

asheville wedding

What prettier place to have a wedding than The Biltmore in Asheville, North Carolina? A sweet friend of mine got married there a while ago and I've been meaning to post my photos ever since. Laura and her darling Lee had beautiful, sunshiney weather, gorgeous flowers and a fun Victorian theme, complete with period furniture and little charming vignettes set up on a terrace outside the reception at The Grand Bohemian. So pretty!
