rosemary beach

With summer officially being over, I have found myself longing to get back to the beach. And not back to the ol' swimsuit and sun. But to bundle up on a lounge chair and relax. Perfect weather right about now. Not too hot during the day and not too cold at night. Just the perfect time of year to grab a throw and watch the sunset with your toes in the sand.

A new client recently inquired about this hugger and it made me realize how I cannot wait to get back to the beach, even though we just left. Although, I haven't been to Rosemary lately - possible trip to 30A in my future :) Here's hoping!

it's all in the name

What a great logo this was to concept and create. With a name like 'Staged with Style' I felt a bit challenged to measure up with creative style. But in the end, I will have to admit, I'm pretty darn happy with the results... and so is the client! It's simple, yet busy, pretty, yet refined, classic, yet modern... I know, each description is hypocritical of the next - and I think that's why I like this logo so much. It's a lil' bit of everything all rolled into one!

How great is this? A honeycomb honey-do list!

big boys

I spend so much time designing baby boy invitations, announcements, stationery and calling cards... but never really anything big boy. So I was really excited to face a new challenge of designing sticker labels for Bianca and her three boys. I took it upon myself to create something modern, fun, yet still childlike. Something that reflects on boys, but not too immature for their age. Although I do not want Bennett to grow up anymore and as badly as I want to freeze time and keep him just the way he is, I also look forward to the future when he is a big boy one day. I will definitely be working on more 'he's not a baby anymore' stationery and materials in the future!

it's gonna be an icky sticky halloween

How fun are these halloween stickers for Bianca's boys? She will be using them for party favors at school! Hope you have a fun icky-STICKY halloween party planned :)

our little fish turned one

So, our sweet little guy celebrated his first birthday party with family and friends this past weekend - and what fun we all had! Cannot believe how fast that year flew by.

Remember his invitation I posted a few weeks ago? Well, our little fish who loves loves the water had a blast splashin' around, playing with friends and eating his cake!

Don't forget to ask about Cupcake Toppers, Food Cards, Banners, Straw Flags, Napkin Ring Labels, Thank You Labels, Party Favor Bags, Water Bottle Labels and Signs for your next party!

weather is kinda fishy

Today at 5:00pm kicks-off the Labor Day weekend and the majority of our friends are heading to the beach! Unfortunately for our area, the weather is kinda fishy. Rainy, rainy days with no sun in sight is what the forecast is predicting. Ugh for the beach goers. But, who can complain when we are one and half hours away from a three day weekend - woo hoo! To get you pumped up for this weekend, as I like to call the last weekend of the summer, here are a few fun pieces of stationery. Happy Labor Day weekend to you and yours!
