San Francisco Bound!

We are going on vacation for the next 5 days out to, foggy, San Francisco! San Francisco is one of our most favorite cities. We definitely left our hearts there when we visited 4 years ago, so, needless to say, we are super excited to go back. Even more exciting, Beckett is going on his first plane ride! Let's hope it goes well...

We closed down the Etsy shop for the next 5 days, but don't fret, it will be back open next Tuesday the 6th. Happy Travels!

Pabst, my love

A few weeks ago, Adam was traveling for work, so I decided to play around and design a card for him for when he arrived home. Let's face it, we both love Pabst, a lot. What's not to love? They're cheap, tasty and come in 'Tall Boy'. I hand drew the Tall Boy can and kind of love it, I think I'm going to post it up in my office.

Lovely Love in White Bear Lake

A HUGE congratulations to Pondie and Mark as they get hitched up in White Bear Lake, MN today! I had the pleasure of working with them on pretty much all of their wedding stationery, including these fun mark-the-date bookmarks!

It's always really refreshing to work with a couple who has a unique vision for what they want their invitations to look like, and it's even more awesome when I'm able to successfully capture that and bring it to life. Anyone who knows me, knows that I LOVE maps of all kinds (especially vintage), so I was thrilled when Pondie told me she wanted to incorporate a vintage map of White Bear Lake. The invitations were complete with a vintage WBL map printed on the reverse side of the card, as well as a special WBL map envelope liner.

Pondie and Mark (and MOB, Nancy too!), it was truly wonderful working with you, and I hope I was able to capture your sweet love of Minnesota, nature and each other, on paper.

Weeeee're back!

Phew, it has been quite a crazy few weeks around these parts! Wedding season has been in full swing, which means things can get backed up. Not to mention, we are remodeling our upstairs unfinished attic in our house (which houses my office!), so things have been stressful trying to work + keeping a toddler occupied while construction workers go in and out of the house is quite the challenge. But thankfully, things are getting back to normal and the construction upstairs is just about finished. The good news is we have opened the Etsy shop back up, hooray! We are also working on some new designs, which should be up in the shop in the coming weeks. Hooray for normal-ness!
