It's been over a year since I've "blogged". The sole purpose of this blog is to keep people up to date on projects I've been working on (not to write about silly things in my life) and since starting a new job in Nov. 2011 I've been super busy but working on some really amazing things. 

There's too much to go back and list at this moment, maybe eventually, but for now I'll just try to do a better job at keeping up with posting about new projects. 

In the meantime, most of my new projects are on my newly updated portfolio site

Whoa it's been a long time since I've posted anything. The reason behind that is, I have a new job. A fantastic new job. One drawback–I have been super busy lately. I don't have that much more time for freelance or random side projects, but I am so much happier at work, it's all worth it.

A small update, I started my new job back in November, so we had been designing for spring items starting then. It's fun to see them start to arrive in stores and online. Here's a quick screenshot of the first projects I worked on when I started. Birds and roses!

Peter Pan collars

Usually when I'm home with my Mom and my sister(s), we get crafty. Nothing was different this Christmas break. I had been seeing a lot of Peter pan collars in stores and online and wanted to try to make some myself. I drew up a pattern, sat my mom down at the sewing machine and we cranked out a handful! I think the embellished ones are so cute.

Sibs-giving crafts

This year was the first year that all my siblings got together (sans parents) to have our own thanksgiving. My sister and I love to craft so we thought we'd bring some fun to the table settings. I made napkin holders/place cards for everyone with their portraits on them, and Shannon set up a great table "cloth" and decorations for the kitchen.

Here's my (almost complete) second board for Rhythm! So excited to be doing these. I've seen photos of the finished boards of my first design and still think it's an amazing opportunity. This one above is a girls board. What'cha think ladies?

Turkey-day craft preview

I am making some fun things for my family for Thanksgiving. I don't want to give anything away yet, but here's a sneak peak. More photos after Thanksgiving–I want to keep it as a surprise to them!

I know I have just been posting a lot about Rhythm lately, but it's still really exciting to me to have my designs be on a snowboard. Along with designing boards,  I am also working on an image for shirts/sweatshirts. It will most likely be close to this top image in the end.

DIY pouch

I found a post for a hand dyed leather and neon pouch on etsy that I loved, but it was sold out and a tad out of my price range.  (Below: via ClutchNY on Etsy)

Not even a month later I stumbled upon a blog post for a DIY neon painted leather pouch. All you need is a leather pouch (like the ones from American Apparel I had been stalking for months) and acrylic paint.

Here's the link to the blog post.
Ta-da! Finished product: I'm obsessed.

Devito Pumpkin

Halloween is my all-time favorite time of the year, I think I like it more than Christmas. Sadly, I won't actually be able to really celebrate halloween since I'll be out of town at a wedding, but I still had to carve pumpkins. For those who know me, you know that I get way into pumpkin carving. It's serious business. For the past 4 years I have created a Dwight Schrute pumpkin (I don't think a photo exists), A Mickey Pumpkin,  John Lithgow (WHICH he tweeted about!) and this year a Danny Devito pumpkin:

This past Saturday I had a little art sale at Bucketfeet's Trunk show. It was pretty successful, I sold a few things and got pretty positive feedback with a lot of my paintings and prints. I'd love to do something like this again, hopefully with a bigger crowd next time. Also I'll be posting what didn't sell on my etsy page soon, so keep an eye out for that.

Come out to BucketFeet's trunk show tomorrow (previous post). I have a stack of new paintings and prints I'm lugging over and check out their shoes too. Bring yer friendssss.

Here are some versions of logos I've created for the website The site isn't live yet but check back in a few days when it is. The idea is to get people to do something good in their own community all over the country. I can't wait to see the finished product.

Crafty Type

Just finished another type project, made an all cut paper card. My fingers hurt. I basically did it because I've been seeing some really awesome cut typography on blogs lately and I just wanted to see if I could do the same. Here's a couple in-progress shots and the final thing.
