I attended the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco for the second year in a row this past weekend, and saw lots of new stuff and talent as well as some favorites from last year. I purchased more this year than last as well...

Above are some of the standouts, and are things I would have liked to purchase or did. Regardless I will definitely be keeping my eye on them for new stuff.

Hey there cupcake!

Making this card was a lot of fun, and creating it reminded me of a fuzzy memory from my childhood of cards that had images on them and pre-punched holes that we could "sew".

Project notes: When I make cards like this in the future, I will construct them a little differently the inside paper was too thin to glue of the back of an embroidery piece.

Apron Daze

I have been working on this project for a while now. I worked with Cayson Designs to first, create the print for the aprons, then to design the promotional postcard. It's been a shift from my usual work and I love it.

An Albright-Wamsley Affair

Below are the invitations and various collateral pieces I designed for the Albright/Wamsley wedding. Not only were the bride and groom awesome clients, the bride is also my sister. My part in the wedding, as well as Maid of Honor, was designing anything that needed to be printed. Aside from illustrating the birds which remind me of my sister, my favorite part of the project were the place cards which doubled as wedding gifts.

All of the pictures below were taken by the very talented wedding photographer Laura Burlton. Check out her stuff!

Save the Date (magnet)
The photo for these save the dates was taken by the grooms mother, Nancy Wamsley, who is also an artist. I created the artwork.



Rehearsal Dinner Invitation
The rehearsal dinner was at the grooms parent's house. BBQ was the main course.

The programs were printed, cut and drilled by Copy Dot Com, then hand assembled. Copy Dot Com did a great job and were really easy to work with.

Place Cards
The leaves for these were cut from a template I designed. The names and numbers were hand written, then assembled.

Cake Art
Bessie's Bakery used some of the artwork from the invitations on the cake. The cake was carrot cake with cream cheese icing, and it was DELICIOUS.
