The Luck of the Draw

'Tis the season to be creative!  Taking on the challenge of another calendar swap for my mom. Four seasons, four suits!

And because the party is a poliana, it truly is "The Luck of the Draw"! Enjoy!

Meant to bee...

Brand Identity for a wedding stationary and event details company in Philadelphia.  If you weren't aware, bees can be super fun to illustrate and hand draw with an ink quill pen if you are willing to take the time.  Here are a few different options I gave the client. Enjoy the flight!

I'm a little teapot

In honor of my new kitchen I made a brand new teapot! I currently own a Le Creuset bright yellow tea kettle. I figured to match I would create a beautiful white teapot with yellow flower details. My first attempt at making a teapot in years. It pours perfect! Can't wait to start using it!

17th Annual Calendar Party!

For the past 17 years my mother has had a calendar party poliana.  It can get pretty crazy with up to 30 woman fighting for "Bigger Boxes to write in" or "the funniest quotes".  It is a time to look forward to each year, wondering which calendar I will have for the next 12 months. My mother always makes me design an invite for her friends.  This year I decided to spice it up, step away from the computer and remember the importance of taking your time and going back to the basics. This design represents the change of season within the letters of that special word that represents time to come and time past.

Wedding in a field of Poppies!

On a beautiful May afternoon a young man and a woman got married in a field of poppies... I believe that is how my brother would tell it.  And what a wonderful wedding it was, perfect weather, beautiful music, and a pop of color. Check out the colors and fun we had with this poppy inspired wedding at the John Audubon Center in Audubon, PA!

ha! Heather & Alex get hitched

Alex and I got married on April 10th 2010!  The wedding was vintage, outdoors inspired.  With wine from Spain and an estate you could only dream of living in, Alex and I got married on a beautiful sunny April day under an old willow tree.  Here is a look at my invites.

Mood board for my wedding

Little Brother Joe

For as long as I can remember my father was always creating and building.  I felt like a hammer or screw driver was just an automatic extension of any man.  Later to find out, because of him my brothers and I were able to create and build things as well.

My younger brother was the one who followed in my fathers footsteps and actually went to school to study construction management. I had started this business card for my father about three years ago before he got sick. After he passed I opened the file back up and updated it for my younger brother.  I love you Joe! You are as amazing and talented as dad was... minus the temper!
