Some news as of late... Melimba and Beccabury have a mini-mini fabric line coming out (meaning two patterns, in two different color ways). I have no idea on when it might be coming out and where it will be sold, but we're excited that something is finally in the works for production. I'll put up some pictures as soon as I get the green light. Kind of exciting... Also, they redid the designer page on Riley Blake Design's website. It was funny putting together our bio and figuring out what photo to use. I was thinking our "racing day" photo would be good, but we opted for another one. You can see it here. One day we should think about taking some REAL true photos of us together instead of scrounging up these snapshots where we have to crop out babies and other people. Let's put that on the to-do list, okay, Becc?
here's the "racing day" snapshot, in case you forgot how beautiful we were. baHH!
Anyway, on to the main event.
Take for example, my friend Bekah. We used to be friends and co-workers at a darling stationery store, Moon Mippy. Now we just get to be friends. It is fun that she asked me to help her out with some new baby stationery. I was really happy when she told me she was a fan of elephants. I am TOO! Here's what we came up with. Oh, and don't you just LOVE her name she picked out. So cute.
I never know which color I like it in best... so I typically do a few on different card stocks.
Remember how I bought a ton of adhesive paper? Gotta use it. Decided to make some stickers.
Babies are abounding, and I love it. Another favorite friend just added to her family as well. And, since I've been on the elephant kick, I decided to make a little family with them for a set of family stationery. I love the baby elephant the most.
Another great friend (who also worked at Moon Mippy) had a little dolly turning 2. Since Tillie is totally into stickers, I thought her little Brooklyn might like the sticker idea. And, yes, I took the original design from Tillie's 2nd birthday logo. But these colors are so much more hip.
I'm currently working on another baby project (as in, it's printing right now), and it is making me really excited! Stay tuned for that. At the rate I'm going, I'll probably post about it in 6 months. baaA!
Anyway, just thought I'd share a few of the things I do when I burn the midnight oil.
Also! thanks for the kind words about Calvin and his hospital visit. We are doing MUCH better now. Still not a champion drinker, but he's starting to drink using a sippy cup (the original ones we already had, of all the sippy cups?!). Hallelujah, none-the-less. And, I'm still experimenting with different formulas to see which ones he likes (or will tolerate) most. If you have any suggestions, holler them out! Thanks, friends.
Hope you're having a Totally Terrific Tuesday.
