It's been a lot of hard work and my passion for design has carried me through the tough times. As some of you may already know I was laid off from my full time job over a year ago. But today is a new day and with the support of friends and family I have been building up my business from the ground up! This year is ending with great success! I finally feel like were up and running! So thank you to all of you who have cheered me on and have supported my efforts in doing my own thing! A special thank you to my husband Justin who has been my best cheer leader :). Oh don't tell him I called him a cheer leader haha... Happy Holidays Everyone!

It's been awhile...

WOW! I can't believe how long it has been since I last posted. I have been busy! With the holidays fast approaching and holiday items to design I've been spinning in circles in my office chair! Here are a few designs that I have been working on. Design #1 is a all text wedding invite design. I had a lot of fun with the typography on this one! Very simple yet elegant! Design #2 is the same with a silhouette of the couple added.
I had a blast working on these! Hope you all enjoy these as well!

Damask Madness

Damask seems to be the current and ever so popular theme these days it is everywhere from bedding to stationery. So I decided why not create my own Damask pattern. The theme I chose to use was one of my favorite! EQUESTRIAN! I hope to create this into a wedding invite soon with a matching thank you card set. If you would like to use this pattern please contact me.

Vector Madness!

Thinking Spring! Well I am trying to, after a long winter of snow and cold I am ready to trade in my sweaters for a pair of shorts and a t-shirt in other words I long for spring! While dreaming of warm summer days I started sketching up a butterfly design which I then took and digitized in Adobe Illustrator. 
I have recently been messing around in illustrator with pattern swatches. Below is a current piece of artwork I have created using illustrators live paint feature along with some pattern swatches.
The above image was created using a hand drawing of a butterfly and then adding color with Live Paint in Adobe Illustrator.
This wood grain pattern was created using a custom wood grain pattern swatch.

Photography Break

I love photography as much as I like design. I am a member of the twin cities Photoshop and photography meetup group. They have decided to do a one photo a day challenge. I have found this to be a fun way to take a break from some of my other projects. Here are some photos I have taken the last two days.
