New Look for Etsy, Facebook and New Big Cartel shop!

I was up late last night working on new logos and identity for my shop and creating a brand new shop on Big Cartel. I can't tell you how excited I am that I finally got around to doing this. It has been months since I've wanted to do a new look but I have just been so busy. I'm a designer but never have time to work on my OWN projects - it's crazy! SO here it is - the big unveiling! What do you all think?? 
My Big Cartel will have more things listed soon - so make sure you are following the feed! 

Next up on the revamp list - my blog! Now to get some business cards and postcards made! =)

A Treasury Made up of Nautical Trend finds on Etsy

Here's the Link!
I don't know about you but I am ga-ga over the Nautical Trend. I LOVE bold red and white and navy and white stripes. Love the brass button details, the anchors...everything! Maybe it's because I'm a closet pirate...maybe I secretly love the Navy..I don't know. What I do know is I want all of the goodies I found on Etsy that represent this trend. I ESPECIALLY adore the Skipper Bikini Bottoms!! Check out the shop that makes those and you will find a matching red and white stripe bikini top that would make you a retro siren on the beach this summer. Another favorite is the Large Nautical Clutch by dear friend at Itty Bitty Bag Company. I saw her post a pic of it before listing on FB and it totally inspired this collection. So chic!

Let's give this treasury lots of love in the form of clicks and comments, shall we? It really deserves front page status! Thanks everyone! Have a lovely Saturday. =)

New Bridal Shower Designs for Wedding Paper Divas

Vibrant Summer in White, Custard and Chenille
I have been waiting (rather impatiently) for these to be available on Wedding Paper Divas. So happy they finally are! Can't wait to order samples. I think these invites are perfect for the gardening bride or a tea party or garden party theme.

My favorite Vibrant Summer colorway (above) is the first one - named white because the background. Forest Grove (below) for me is a tie between Bright Green and Iris. Which colors are your favorite? 

Forest Grove in Bright Green, Sunny Yellow, Blushing and Iris
Makes me wish I was getting married. Anyone have a time machine I can borrow? =)

Etsy Shop Update: OOAK Illustrated Moleskine

I did it! Took all of your feedback and advice and listed it! You can find it in my shop here. There is only one of these in the world! It's actually hard to let it go but it's my job to make and your job to enjoy and love what I make. =) I am working on some more moleskine's...a tea time one and another edition of the Ralph Waldo Emerson quote since it was so well received. It is not exactly like the first...which I love. Each one will be different and unique. They come lovingly wrapped in a kraft paper bag, sealed with a bit of washi tape. There will be a hand drawn Thank You on the bag with my business card attached with the same washi tape, then it is securely shipped in a kraft mailer.

I hope the new owner (whoever you are) enjoys it as and is as inspired by it as I was making it!
