Vision to Invitation

This summer I had the honour of designing wedding invitations for two, out of this world, wonderful couples. This is one of the sets. I really enjoyed the process of turning the couples visions into invitations for their big day. [Congratulations, again, Diana & Nick!]

Sea Life

I am working on changing a few things, content wise, around here. One of those things is sharing more projects of my own and providing a glimpse into my creative life. I hope that's ok.

I love the ocean and anything that has to do with it. I therefore love drawing sea life. These little jottings are the result of playing around with my water colours one afternoon.

Watercolour Wonder

This morning I want to share with you, the work of Sasha Prood. She is a designer, illustrator, artist and devotee of all things paper... my kind of girl! Her use of watercolour is amazing.

Happy Birthday Half Sweet

I mentioned last week that I picked up a new print from Inkwell Boutique. Well... this is it! I got it as a Birthday present for Half Sweet Vanilla [who turned two this weekend]. I have always loved this mantra and one of my first posts here in the blog-o-sphere was of this print. It is the creation of Heart Fish Press. Thanks to everyone who reads my blog!

Dream Big & Often

Yesterday evening I went to the open house of one my favourite shops in Halifax, Inkwell Boutique. I picked up a new print [more on that next week], enjoyed delicious lemonade, jelly beans, a fantastic loot bag and got to print my own bookmark on their beautiful letterpress.

The Unspoken Travels of Oscar Ryan

I love the branding for The Unspoken Travels of Oscar Ryan Coffee House. The designs, done by CIP Creative, were inspired by Oscars travels around the world to find different coffee beans.

Sewing Project

Not to long ago I got my first sewing machine. This is an item that has been on my list of things to get for quite some time. No bells and whistles [although it does do automatic button holes!] and not at all intimidating to thread! This is a project I just finished. I really love bold print of the fabric and thought that it made for a great napkin set!

Life's a Beach

I made a quick trip home this weekend and beach time was the theme! We hit 3 different beaches in 2 days. I love summer on the South Shore.

A Little Relish

I just came across a new online magazine that I really love. It's called A Little Relish [great name!] and it is a fantastic collection of cafes, restaurants [in australia] recipes and photographs. Warning. Do not read on an empty stomach! Click here to enjoy it!

How beautiful are these scarves from lemlem? A little too pricey for me especially since I would like one in every colour and pattern. Happy Friday!

Indie Cases

I love my iphone and just might love it even more with one of these fantastic cases wrapped around it! I love the eraser.
