It’s Baby and Wedding Season!

I've been a busy lady! It must be baby season because I am working on another order of baby shower invitations. They will be very similar to the last order. Same exact colors but a few more details like a map, a transparent inner envelope (cute!) and the Baby's R Us registration card. These are turning out very nice so far and I will have some pics next week.

In addition, I am working on thank you cards for a wedding. This is a destination wedding in Costa Rica (I will be there May 21-28) and the bride asked me to put together a tropical theme thank you card. This is the result. The cards have been printed so all I have left to do is cut and fold.

Needless to say, it will be a very busy weekend!

Mother's Day!

It’s almost Mother’s Day! So I have put together a card that says “Mother” in a variety of languages. I made several versions of this card since a lot of my friends Mom’s speak other languages. So I made this card with the main mother in English, Spanish and French.

The inside of the card also say’s Happy Mother’s Day! It can be made in any color but I stuck with the blue and lime green. I am very happy with how it turned out.

Unique LA Event

I went to an awesome tradeshow up in LA this last weekend called Unique LA. This was geared towards Etsy type sellers. It is a place for them to showcase their independent designs and products. I went there to do some future vending research and I was so impressed!

I am absolutely planning to exhibit at the December show. I had such a great time. I loved checking out all of the unique, one of a kind finds. I bought some great gifts, talked to some really cool vendors and got some great ideas for the future.

Some of My Favorite Sellers from the Show:

I purchased two beautiful necklaces made from cloth with adorable button accents

Chocolate and Steel
Beautiful and unique silver jewelry that is made from reclaimed silver

Rachel Austin
Beautiful paintings, bright color and lots of bird designs. A lot of the paintings look like something that would fit perfectly in my apartment

Something Sophie
Wonderful line of mineral cosmetics! I bought several items and everything I’ve tried so far, I have loved!

Reverie Studio
Great silver and semi precious stone jewelry. Beautiful pieces and the seller was extremely friendly.

Side Note: I learned how to properly pronounce “Etsy”. Sounds like “Betsy” without the “B”. Good to know :)

I’m in Laguna B! House Party with LMFAO

So for a non card related blog……I went to a really cool party last week at this beautiful mansion in Laguna. I really didn’t know what to expect because my friend Maria who I went to college with was in town and is the one who invited me and didn’t tell me much other than that it was a circus theme.

Anyway, the party was awesome! The house was beautiful! Major props to the event coordinator for pulling this all together. It had so much detail! LMFAO performed….“I’m in Miami bi**h”. Great, Great. They had a cirque du soleil girl on a ring above the pool, a girl with a huge snake, guy with a monkey and a guy doing caricatures. My drawing is below. I also found a pic of Maria and I that is on the 944 website and then a pic of me with the snake….because I’m so brave :) Anyway, figured I would spice up the blog with something different. Hope you like.
