Pineapple Easter Eggs!


I found instructions to make these on the beautiful Studio DIY blog.  Apparently they've also made pineapple walnuts before.  Super cute!!

Happy Birthday Balloons

For Valentine's Day, I designed these We're Good Together cards which were pretty popular in a couple shops that carried them here in San Francisco.

I liked the overlapping effect so much I used the idea again to create a cheerful balloon birthday card.  I printed them in a bold and cheerful colorway and a light, delicate and airy colorway.  Don't you love 'em?

Geometric Thank You

Over the long weekend, I also completed this triangle pattened thank you card.  I wanted to pair the bold geometrics with a delicate font.  The gold ink was a little harsh on its own, so I toned it down by mixing in some yellow ink.

It turns out that the lighting in my office isn't terrible.  Which photo looks better?  I  like the brown background, but unfortunately the shape of the card looks a little distorted because the card kept trying to open up. 

I made the magnets shown in the top picture (and matching push pins) a while back using Lotta Jansdotter fabric, flat back buttons and a button coverer.  That was a fun project.

Less Than One Month Marshmallows!

Yes, that's right, the Veronica Mars movie comes out on March 14.  It's almost here!  In honor of the revival of one of my favorite television shows on the big screen, I designed and printed this A Long Time Ago card.  It was a great theme song...
Available here.
I figured the Marshmallow fandom would need invitation cards to get everyone together for the premiere night showings.

Finally - Inaluxe for Me!!!

I started my new job this past Monday and I've been settling in.  Part of that process includes deciding how I want to decorate my office.  I am told I may or may not have access to an art allowance, but there was a sale on Inaluxe prints through so I jumped on it.  I had also searched around Etsy for other unique prints, but with the sale, it didn't make sense to order any alternatives, especially since I've been obsessing over these beautiful colorful prints for a long time! It was really hard to chose, but here is a preview of what I purchased:  

I'll still need to look into framing these lovelies, but I'll worry about that later.

The Wheels on the Bus

For those of you out there with toddlers, you know how much the little ones love how the "Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round".  Inspired by Baby CP, I printed these double-decker notecards and notebooks. Yes, he gave me the thumbs up when he saw the finished product.  =)
