motif monday | no.6

I've been working on this pattern for another school project but I can't stop thinking about it because we are about to go on an adventure! We leave in two days for a week-long trip to the Bay Area with stays in San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkley. We also plan to do some exploring of the coast and hope to drive through some of the Redwoods. I am so excited- like those little kids on the old Disney commercial, remember that one? I'm too excited to sleep! It's been a long time since we went on a real vacation just the two of us and we are ready to check out a completely new (to me) part of the country.

If you have any travel suggestions or must-see spots for the Bay Area please leave a comment and let me know!


motif monday | no.5

Well, I have already missed a week in my motifs! Like I said in my last post, things were getting pretty hectic here and I have been playing catch up for a couple of weeks. But I am here to share and I'll be back later in the week with another pattern and more in-depth post.  Today's floral pattern is an older, but personal favorite of mine, a design I created for my little sister's wedding invitation suite. I had the pleasure of working with her to create the entire suite for her wedding back in August and I think (hope) we really got her vision and color palette across with this design. I love nothing more than a floral pattern so it really was a dream to sketch these up and then turn them into the full invitation set. I'll try to post some photos of that soon, too! Enjoy!


motif monday | no.4

Just realizing that my next few days are going to be super busy and rather than freak out and do nothing (that's normal, right?) I wanted to pop in and share a quick pattern. No breakdown or fancy details, just a very simple design inspired by this month's day of LOVE. This is something I created for a dear friend for an upcoming event she has, check out her new blog here.

I haven't done much of it yet, but I am excited to browse through Valentines Day inspired imagery so I can get some new cards and artwork made this week.
