New project, new beginnings

So over the last few months (ok like 6) I’ve been working on a project, something to be a creative release cause without designing (working as a designer 40+ hours a work week and freelancing on top of that) I’ve felt a little lost..that my student loans sitting there were now a painful reminder of a talent and education no longer regularly being used. So what I have come up with is a twist to the popular trend right now. I’m customizing mason jar lamps, painting them with fun illustrations I’ve done or inspired designs from my environment. I’ve opened a etsy store that you can check out here but here are a few pics of my lamps too πŸ™‚

At 37 weeks pregnant…spur of the moment, no traditional “will you marry me” a few weeks to figure it all out…and though nothing fit in to my little girl dreams of my wedding day..what matters is the end result, I’m married to my best friend the man of my dreams…

Close to my heart

I recently was able to design my own baby shower invite for one of my showers, cause “gasp” I couldn’t just let my sister send out a generic e-vite πŸ™‚ Before baby, there were furkids, 2 for me, 1 for my boyfriend. . . needless to say my son has 3 best friends eagerly waiting for his arrival. So I tried to depict the relationship that I see happening in my invite. . . I also am going to print just the illustration for the nursery. Nothing says love, like a boy and his dogs. . . .baby_boy_invite

Happy Fourth of July!

Its a beautiful day, blue skies, slight breeze just right temp (which I’m truly grateful for right now after the heat wave) I have 3 happy puppies laying around my feet chewing on various toys. . . all in all its been a wonderful holiday morning. Β Don’t worry this pregger girl is not drinking wine πŸ˜‰ though I do miss my Noble Estates Semi Sparkling Riesling (2.5 more months!!).Β 35317_409214067025_4055835_n34913_409214107025_6905297_n
