elephant note cards

A friend of mine asked me to create a custom personal note as a bridal shower gift. I thought it was a great idea for a bride or even bridesmaids. The recipient loves elephants, purple and blue. This was a really fun project and I like how it turned out. Maybe I’ll set up an Etsy shop offering custom stationery… all I need is a couple more hours in the day!

FP Behind the Scenes

I created these little prototypes as a packaging option for a 3 pack of panties. We ended up going with a different idea so I thought I would share some pretty things from the reject pile.
The new panty packaging should be in stores February, I’ll post a pic once I see the final product!

PS - If anyone has any tips on how to make my images larger, please do tell! I cannot seem to figure this out

pleased to meet you

I made these letters for my facebook profile. You know how the new profile has the 5 photos right above your wall? It’s a perfect spot for a little greeting. I can’t take credit for this idea, the adorable and super talented Katie of Color Me Katie thought this up and I had to do my own spin on it. Her blog is filled with lovely, colorful photos and fun paper art, it’s a great read so check it out!

The Mayweed

Happy New Year!

I’m not really big on making resolutions, but I do like the idea of starting fresh in a new year. No big plans for 2011, but I would love to take a painting or calligraphy class, and maybe learn some new techniques.

This is a Mayweed plant… why did I paint this? Well I flipped to a random page in my botanical book and it looked like a lovely little weed. I did a little research and found she is a sister to the Chamomile plant. Anyway, the Mayweed actually has white flowers but my dinky scanner refused to cooperate so I painted them over :)

I haven’t figured out how to make the images larger, but if you click it you can see a lot more detail. Hopefully I can figure this out in 2011!
