Kim's Baby Shower

My dear friend Kim Winterton will be the first of my very close friends to have a baby! I created this little onesie (and 2 others) and this coupon for her for a gift. The baby's name is going to be Owen Winterton (not sure on the middle name yet- probably Andrew, after his father) and the initials are the inspiration for the onesie shown. The coupon was printed on watercolor paper so it was nice and heavy (haha, and it was all that we had other than regular paper). So anyway, I am so excited for sweet Kim & Andrew! They'll be the best parents EVER. Congrats kids!!


It's true. I was no where near close to finishing my floral alphabet before school started. But I'm not giving up! Here is letter H in the same sea-inspired color palette as the letter C. I have drawn up the rest of the alphabet in my notebook- now I just have to computerize them all. So bare with me as I slowly add my letters during school.

Hand-Lettered Birthday Card

Here is a card that I made for my dearest friend, Rachel (Carlson) Benson. Her favorite color is green and she loves nature so I thought I'd incorporate those items. I really love making these cards- I think I'll get some designs together and sell them along with our t-shirts (when we get that up and running). Anyway, Happy Birthday Roche!! Your the best!

Wedding Sign

Here is a wedding sign that I hand-painted for Jessica & Broc's wedding. I also created their invitations and you can see them here. It was really fun to work on a larger-scale lettering project! I hope to do more signage in the future.

Wedding Calligraphy

So here's a look at what I've been working on lately. Black ink on white envelopes in a style that was traditional but with some little flourishes added. It was so fun to work on these envelopes!! And I got to watch loads of Parking Wars while doing so, so that was fun.

Here's the bride & groom's special envelope:
