Rad Album Art + Busy-ness

Well I am one month away from taking my maternity leave. The belly is getting bigger every day, which also means I am getting more and more uncomfortable! On top of that we have been busier than ever here at Cracked Designs, so much so that I can't accept anymore summer weddings or store orders! I'm a tired preggo.

But to sooth my stressed out soul, I have been way into 'Broken Bells' a new collaboration between the lead singer of the Shins and Danger Mouse. Their album cover art is totally rad-tastic as well. You should check it out.

PS: I will been closing down my Etsy shop by the end of this month, which is a little earlier than originally planned. : (

Destination Save the Dates

I recently designed some luggage tag style save the date cards for the wonderful Carmen & James who are getting married in Puerto Rico this December. I think they turned out pretty cool.
