Creative Bridal Shower Gift

I always want to do something a little different for gifts for people, just never seem to have the time to do it! WELL I had time finally one day, and decided to be a little 'crafty' with my gift for Tiffin. I bought towels & wash cloths off her registry that I tied together with twine, found a cute basket & weaved ribbon through it, filled colored vases with bath salts, added candles and vwala we have a cute gift different than the norm!

Hunter's Over-haul

This past week I spent ordering pictures, buying frames, and custom matting each image. My husbands company desperately needed help with decorations around the office since buyers come in there a lot, so I offered to help spice it up. Next on the list is just to paint it now!

All the images were either black and white or sepia, all taken a long time ago. Very very cool!

Party for a Cure Website

I love comparing what people do in Microsoft Word to what Graphic Designers can do. I was sent this that a friend had designed in word for a pub crawl to raise money for juvenile diabetes:
And after a couple hours I turned it into a working website that you can visit here, or if not you can see below.

Cynthia's Baby Shower Invitation

I had the chance this week to design an invitation for a baby shower that my mom is hosting. Her friend, Cynthia, loves lambs, polka dots and is having a little girl... so this idea was pretty simple! My mom is putting ribbon at the top of each invitation, so that's why there is some space up there.

I also made thank you notes for her...I love it when invitations and thank you notes match! Here is the Front:
They are giving out these favors as well to match from the company I work for:

As an engagement present for our good friends, Molly & Marshal, I designed and printed her thank you notes that she can send out after the shower! I printed labels with all the addresses for her envelopes to help save her some time too! They match her invitation perfectly, you can see it here.

I am in a wedding in May for our great friends, Molly & Marshal. All the bridesmaids are hosting a shower for her in March and I was able to design the invite for this one as well! We chose the color theme to be a classy black, white and pink, which I think looks very nice!

Lara's Baby Shower Invitation.

My sister & her friend, Jenn, are hosting another shower for one of their friends. They found an invitation they liked- but just in the wrong colors, so I just recreated it in the colors of the nursery! (once again whiting out stuff that doesn't have to be shared with blog land)

Sara's Baby Shower Invitation

I just finished designing an invitation for a baby shower that I'm co-hosting for my best friend Sara! I'm super excited about it, as this idea came pretty fast and I had a blast drawing all the graphics too! (covered up parts that blog world doesn't have to see!)

Christmas Gifts 2008

I have started giving our family friends a homemade dessert every year for Christmas. Of course I am different from most people, where I could care less about the dessert and instead just focus on how it's presented :)

I decorated some mason jars by layering Christmas scrapbooking paper and printing out a Merry Christmas greeting! I wrapped ribbon around the mason jars as well for decoration!Next was time to make all the tags. I could have done more on these but I was tired!
Next it was time to make the cookies! MAN were these a pain, Pinwheel Peppermint Cookies! Basically sugar cookies from scratch, half the batch and dye it red. Then layer the red batch over the other half and roll it up like jelly rolls. Freeze then slice them up and bake. They will look like this when you are done:
You then make the peppermint frosting. Then stick two cookies together with the peppermint frosting in the middle (just like an oreo). I chose to individually wrap each one and curl ribbon on the edges to look like this:
I bought some really cute fabric on sale at JoAnn's and cut into circles to cover the lids. Tie it up with some twine and you are done :)
