This #WeddingWednesday we’re going to be taking a peek at some baby shower invitations!! I had the pleasure of designing a friend’s baby shower invitation and I LOVED it. Watercolor + peaches + babies? SIGN ME UP!
Hand painted watercolor, this invitation design features a baby monogram matching the peach themed shower along with neutral florals to accommodate a neutral-loving mama! Each invitation was addressed with a touch of greenery watercolor to coordinate with the invite and a pearl-finish peach wax seal designed for baby Jamison and created by Artisaire!
I’m so excited to share these invitations, but even more excited to welcome baby Jamison when she arrives!!
In 2015, I embarked on a short-lived (but super fun) journey into the Memphis Maker world with handmade felt flowers. Thanks to this adventure, I made so many new friends in the Memphis community I will be forever thankful. Two of these friendships included the lovely ladies of the Urban Barn Market, Carrie and Debi – I even featured them in my Memphis Makers Series.
When I was hunting down local markets to participate with my felt flowers, I discovered the adorable Urban Barn Market and HAD to apply. It featured local vendors including art, handmade goods, food, vintage furniture and more – and I was so ecstatic when I was approved to be one of them. After participating in a Spring market and a Fall market, I was unable to get my stuff together to participate in another Spring, but I was asked to make the 2016 Spring market branding for the market!
The theme of the 2016 Spring Urban Barn Market was art – HELLO! <heart emoji> the plan was a paint-by-number design that included the logo and different colorways. The final pieces included a tee shirt design, a printable paint-by-number for guests and (my fave) a GIANT painted canvas I got to stretch and paint myself = dream.
Handlettering queen, Lauren Hom posted an instagram challenge for hand lettering pieces so I hopped aboard. I love the hand lettered design, but there’s so much “meh” hand lettering out there, I tried to stay out of the game in attempts to save the world from more “handwriting” rather than design or calligraphy. However, Lauren’s work is SO inspiring I faced the fear and jumped in.
Not only was it so refreshing to see so much good design work fill my feed with her followers on the challenge, it was reminiscent of SCAD days where you want to be better because you’re surrounded by better.
I’m not an advocate of many challenges.. but when one pops up that has genuine artists and creatives participating and launching a hashtag feed of true art and design, it’s well worth the follow. Seriously. Take a peek at the hashtag to see other artists’ work on this challenge below and sign up (if you dare) to follow along and participate!
