1. Signpost to Literary Favorites I really want a sign like this even though I have no idea where I would put it. I think it serves as an inspiration for my dream baby shower though. Pinned by Vania Morris, originally from Summer Camp Program Director. 2. Tourism Illustrated Icons I love these illustrated icons by Topher Edwards that I found on Dribbble this week. Kinda reminds me of Aladdin's "A Whole New World" with that wavy sky in the background. 3. Frida Clements Illustration Love this illustrated waterfall, reminds me of a large patchwork quilt. The details are my favorite though especially the pieces that extend passed "their square." Found via Smile and Wave on Pinterest, originally from Frida Clemens' Etsy. 4.

I designed these quite awhile go for my church but just a few months ago we rebranded them to the new look and feel of the church that was incorporated last Easter.
