Friday Footnotes


Okay, please forgive me as I neglect again to post the usual Friday Foonotes post. Last week I just gave it up all together and just didn’t post one. But I didn’t want to leave you all hanging again! So here’s a peek at my current projects, some are still in progress!

1. Splish Splash Birthday Invitation

Oh how I loooooove how this invitation came out for my friend’s little baby girl. It’s literally my absolute favorite design I think I’ve ever done. Is that saying too much? I don’t know… I just really love. It was one of those times that it came out exactly like I had dreamed it up in my head. I love the layers of illustration, texture, and color. But seriously, isn’t it darling? Hoping to send these out over this weekend in coral envelopes stuffed with pearlescent envelope liners. Ah! And you know that a full post on the invite and the party will be posted, when the time comes. I was just too pleased with it that I’ve already listed in my shop, find that here.

2. Personalized Love is Sweet

Just yesterday, I  got a custom request on Etsy to create a stamp for a cookie bar station for a wedding. Together with the bride we created this Love is Sweet stamp. So excited to get this in hand!

3. Church Forward

But what’s really been the star of my current workload is creating all new graphics for several new projects for my church, Calvary Chapel Canyon Hills. First priority was to create a sermon graphic for a 3 part July series.

4. Now What, A New Believers’ Packet

And then we also created an 8 page brochure-like booklet for new believers… something that will be party of a larger “welcome basket.” This is still a work in progress but it’s been a pretty fun and immersive project, can’t wait to have the real deal in my hands!

5. Scrapbook Birthday Cards

And last, but certainly not least, the first weekend of June is usually full of birthday celebrations! So of course, I had to find a bit of time to sit down and make up some cards for these best friends of mine who celebrate their special days in June.

I believe in magic. I believe in the power of true love. I believe in fairy tales and happy endings. And I live to create stationery and art for the young at heart to allow my fellow dreamers to treasure all of life’s most wondrous moments!
