PS Wedding Invitations

Yay! My 2 year blog hiatus is over!
I realized it has been so embarrassingly long since I last posted, it's time to start up again.
I will be posting some of my favorite projects that I've worked on since starting at Paper Source over 2 years ago. Let's start with Wedding invitations! These 4 are the ones I was most excited about when we launched last year. Our new 2015 line doesn't launch until January, but I am super excited for them to debut. Sit tight for that!


Happy Howl-oween

I know it's been ages since I've posted, but cut me some slack! I'm super busy at work!

I whipped this up because I love this time of year. This design started out as a template to carve on a pumpkin but I learned the hard way that sometimes being overly ambitious isn't always the best route.
I thought this illustration did it better justice!

Happy Halloween!
You'll find me on November first in the Target discount candy aisle. No shame.


Let's have a Fiesta!

The last thing I did before leaving Colorbök was design two new boutiques for one of Colorbök 's sub-brands, Cloud9 Design.
This boutique is one of my favorites! I'm excited to have all the product in my hands!

I'm proud and excited to announce the first batch of designs that I worked on since starting Paper Source have made their way online! They're now available for custom order on the website.
There are a lot of really great designs that have been added, and many have the option to add a personal photo. The five shown below are some of my personal favorites: 

Head on over to paper-source.com and check them out!


The first

Today marks one month since I arrived in Chicago. I can't believe it's only been a month, really. For as fast as time passes here, it's also so much busier than living in Michigan, that I feel like for as much as I've done so far, 3 months might have passed by. But, nope. It's only been one month! I made a little photo recap of the past month of my life:

From left to right: 
1 // Packing up all my things in my tiny Ann Arbor apartment..Crazy how much stuff I've accumulated over the past 3 years! I remember moving in and literally not having ANY furniture. I think I was able to move all my belongings in a few bags and boxes. That's sure changed...

2 // Saying goodbye one last time to the place I called home for three years. Ann Arbor really was a beautiful place to live, and I met some great people there. It's the first city since moving away from my parent's house that I've actually felt like I could call my home. 

3 // Waking up for the first time to my new view. My neighborhood is absolutely beautiful. So much nicer than the parking lot I woke up to every day at my old apartment!

4 // Boxes boxes boxes boxes hundreds of boxes. 

5 // Venturing downtown for the first time. This is the station go to every morning when I commute to work.

6 // Exploring the city with Danny! The great thing about living here is that there is ALWAYS something new to do. Every time Danny visits we explore more places. It's like being on vacation every single time!

7 // Preparing for the first day at my new job! I'm already finishing up week #3 and I feel right at home. I love my job so far!

8 // visiting the Hemingway birthplace in Oak Park. So good!

As I get settled in I hope to be able to start working on some paintings again. The 30x30 was such a great challenge and now I want to do more! I also need to work on opening my etsy shop to sell all the paintings I still have from the show. Soon!
