Invitations

Back in January I had the pleasure of throwing my friend a bridal shower... It was so much fun & I wanted to post the invites and some of the decorations I got to design for it. Addresses & names have been changed for privacy. It was so fun to do these orange invites.


Here are some of the decorations I made... I asked my boyfriend to help me find a good branch to use, I think he was a little bit mystified when I asked him to help me paint it orange! But it turned out well, and my mom liked the branch so she got to keep it! :)


Here are the party favors, I finally decided after much deliberation that I should give tea. My favorite was the jasmine tea. Anyway detail-obsessed as I am I wanted to do each teabag tag myself, so I designed these little leaf tags in illustrator and hot glued them all on. There were a couple jars leftover so I have been enjoying the tea often!


And here are the illustrator images of the labels, for fun:


Overall it turned out to be a really fun event! Congratulations you two!! (The wedding was last weekend and the ceremony was so moving. Everyone had a fantastic time!)

Taken on my way home from work. my camera was about to die and I only had a fraction of a second to take it, out my car window. I thought it turned out well, all things considered!

artist of the week

This week's etsytwitter shop of the week is the talented kimwhitecreations, who makes really nice knit goods. I love her work and I totally could use one of these:


I love these cute & eco-friendly coffee cozies. She also creates cute scarves, shawls, hats and more. I wish I could knit like that! The best I can do is the really really basic kind, and even the idea of doing cabled knits confuses me.

Llama Print

New print in the shop! Llama socks is all warm and bundled up, just in time for... spring? I know i know... I'm always doing season-related work too late, for probably the same reason why I want ice cream when it's cold out and hot coffee when it's hot out! :) well, this llama will be warm year round.
