meet maisie

i picked up maisie today in sacramento. she was very nervous and shy at first, but she's warming up quickly. i wonder how long her sweet demeanor will last...

today i had the pleasure of visiting frank lloyd wright's first home in oak park, illinois. he also designed a number of homes in the area as well as some public buildings. i had forgotten most of my architectural history, but i got a little refresher. i think my favorite part of his homes are the windows. he has some great patterns! i wonder how much it costs to buy a wright designed home...

the downside of today was that it was a humid 100+. ugh! i only took a few pictures, i'll see if any turned out well later on.

wedding chicks blog post

my chevron made it on to the wedding chicks blog! it was a happy discovery for me =) it's always interesting to see which invites are the most popular, and usually it's not what i expect. i would say the chevron invite has generated the most interest. learning new things everyday. i should probably design some more collections with bold patterns.

decisions decisions...

out with the old...

it's time for a logo revamp. why is it always hard to design for yourself? i wont necessarily stack everything for the final, but i'm having trouble picking which logo seal i like...

which save the date? how much flourish? help me =(

i'm having trouble thinking tonight. please help >_<

just a little flourish? can there be TOO much flourish? i can't decide which i like best.

save the date do you like better? bottom left or right? i'm thinking the right one is a little better, because it differs more from the invite.

also trying to think of a name for this one...

simply charming?

a little whimsy?

classically elegant?

garden wedding book theme

i've been working on this garden wedding book theme. it was a bit difficult for me, since i don't have much experience designing in the "rustic/elegance" style. a fun challenge nonetheless.
