A little something new...

I just love October and since it is the month of Birthdays I thought my logo/blog/facebook look could use a little facelift as well. Enjoy the new do! And if you have not checked us out on facebook yet, you should!!!


Are You Ready for FALL???

I know I am. I LOVE Fall... the leaves, the colors, the smell of change in the air, oh and birthdays of course.. but that is for a later day. Today I want to share with you one of my favorite places to celebrate Fall, Anderson Farms in Erie, CO. Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to work with them for Fall Festival and I am back for more this year, yay!!!! AND even more exciting is that I was asked to design their new map for the farm. There are a lot of new changes this year and it was time to upgrade the map design. What a fun project this was.. and today I actually got to see it displayed in the information booth surrounded by pumpkins and gourds. YES, Fall is officially here and Fall Festival starts tomorrow!!!!! Everyone in the CO area should make plans to visit Anderson Farms this year... it is sooo much fun!!!!!

So without further ado.. here is the map.. ENJOY!!!!!
PS. A HUGE shout out to my wonderful hubby for helping to sketch all the buildings and signs!!! 
I love you babe you are so talented!


Precious Baby Bump!

I love babies, just plain and simple as that. So when I hear that friends are expecting I get SOOO excited. Then when I get asked to design fun cards for these babies I get even more excited. These fun cards were no exception. I was recently asked by a good friend of mine to help design some fun Baby Shower Invitations for her sister who is expecting this fall. Of Course I said yes, I am so excited for this new addition to their family and was honored to be a part of the shower (even if not physically) by designing the cards.

When I was first asked me about designing these invites my friend said she had this very fun idea that she wanted to customize for her sister. I immediately LOVED it. They had some professional silhouette photos taken of her sisters preggo belly, then scanned in the latest ultrasound picture, and TA DA.... A very fun one-of-a-kind Baby Shower Invitation.

I had so much fun designing these and I hope the shower today was wonderful. Cant wait to meet the new little Kimmel when he/she gets here!!!!! ENJOY!


Little Lion of Judah...

I am soooo very excited to share these wonderful Custom Baby Announcements with you today. They have been such a fun project to work on. The best part of these cards is what they represent, culturally and spiritually. Daddy is from Zimbabwe and they wanted to somehow represent the culture and history of cute little Judah. Enter the colors of the Zimbabwe flag, Green, Red & Yellow! Bright, fun and very African! The second element is the little lion. Representing The Lion of Judah! I love it when I get asked to design something fun and unique. These cards were just that, and I ADORE how they turned out.

To top it all off, I got to designed these cards for the precious new baby of a good friend of mine. I have known his mommy since the middle school days of climbing trees, forts and slumber parties. Now we are both mommies with little ones of our own. It amazes me how life can come back in a full circle sometimes.

Congrats Kim and Rich, Judah is one lucky little boy to have you as parents!!!!!! ENJOY!


Cheers for Three Years!!!!!

Three years ago today, I became a wife. There were Bagpipes, Fairies, a Castle (ok, small stone Church but as close as I could get). It was the perfect setting for a perfect day. So much has happened in the past few years and yet I still feel like it was just yesterday that we said "I DO" before all of our dearest friends and family. Thanks for being by my side for three wonderfully crazy years Babe. I LOVE YOU!!!!!

AND SO, to remember that wonderful summer day under the trees, I have FINALLY gotten my wedding album designed. I am beyond excited to show this to you and even more excited to finally have my album done... whew. I don't often get to design stuff for myself so when I do it is a big deal and I have been waiting with great anticipation for the past few weeks to show it off.

This project could not have been done alone though. I was so honored to have my wonderful friend, and boss at the time, Erin at Art & Soul Photography shoot my wedding photos. I LOVE her work and she captured our day perfectly. THANKS Erin for letting me design to my hearts content with your wonderful images, you rock!

I also have to give a shout out to my wonderful Florist. Heather & Scott at A Funky Little Mountain Flower. Thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing your amazing talents with us that day. I loved my flowers and they fit so well with our whole day that it was the icing on the cake. THANKS!!!!!!!

So now, sit back, relax and enjoy a little glimpse into our BIG day.

Here's to 3 wonderful years and many more to come. I love you Ben!!!!
