Feelin Crafty


I was feeling a bit inspired the other night after a trip to the craft store so I made Trick or Treat bags for the kids. The image was created in Illustrator and I printed it then taped it over a piece of acetate and cut it out with my trusty exacto knife to make the stencil. I used the wrong kind of acetate so the paint bled into the edges a bit but I like the effect it has. Spooky and messy.

Sweets for the sweet


I have been so consumed by Illustrator lately that I thought I would show some love to good 'ol Photoshop. And this is what I came up with. I want to play with it a bit more and make it softer colors like the top left cupcake - but also create a version that's a bit brighter. Problem is..now I want a cupcake!! Maybe that will be my project tomorrow with the kids - baking and decorating cupcakes. Tis the season to start using the oven again! Hooray for Fall! Now all I need is to go apple picking so I can make delicious apple pie! Ok..that's it..I'm off to bake brownies. ;-)

Good News



I just received some great news via email the other day! Two of my baby shower invitation designs have been picked up by TinyPrints for their new line! I am so excited about this and hope that they do really well. I had SO much fun designing them. Kind of wish I had illustrated a few more. Baby and Juvi are definitely two of my favorite categories to design for. My next assignment is Baptism Announcements. Can't wait to get started. I'll keep you posted on when these invites go live on the site. Yay me! :)
