NALA Logo Design

Fab sorority sis, Ginger, is launching a new, and equally fab, online accessory store called NALA.  Based out of the Nashville area, NALA brings Los Angeles style to the Music City and abroad.  I am so honored that Ginger asked me to design her logo that will be used to identify all of her fabulous products available for sale, including her website.

Fun, Colorful & Girly Appliqué Shirts

I just finished these for sorority sister, Tracy, and her beautiful daughter Adalyn!  Such fun colors and fabric, I had to share--I'm in LUV with the blue and the fabric.  It will be gorgeous next to Adalyn's beautiful blue eyes!

The other is for cousin, Stephanie, and her daughter, Bailey for an early  first birthday present.  Enjoy guys!

Second Photography Session

So sorry for the little creative hiatus I've had recently.  A few wonderful, unexpected things have happened in our household, and I had to jet out of town for a few days.  Things should be returning to normal for a few weeks at least.

To start back with a bang, I wanted to share a sneak peek of photos I took this evening of a sweet friend and her family.  Natalie, hope you enjoy--many more where these came from!  :)

Libby's Early Birthday Bag

My good friend, sorority sister & freshman roommate has three beautiful children.  Libby, her youngest and only girl, has her second birthday coming up.  I knew she must be at the stage were she loves girly stuff, and a thought her own personalized bag would be up her alley.  Happy Early Birthday, little Miss Libby!

Paci-Clips for Lily

I just made these sweet paci-clips for the presh grand-niece of a my dear, sweet friend in TN, Jenny.  I hope Lily gets good use out of them, while looking so stylish at the same time!  :)

This first one is with the standard covered button

This other one is a free-standing cut-out flower, similar to how I do the hair clips

Oh Baby! An Advertisement

One of my crazy-in-a-great-way friends (WA), Leslie in TN, helps her mother do marketing for her mother's store, Watercolors.  I was lucky enough to help them out with some business marketing for their new line, Watercolors Bebe, before Christmas last year.  This was designed to be used as full page fliers, along with email blasts.  I even got to amend their existing store logo, to create a similar logo for Watercolors Bebe.  

In all, it was so fun to work on, since it is a little more girly than I normally get to do.  By far, one of my favorite full page ads!  I not only got to work with a dear friend, but I ADORE all of the stuff they carry!  :)

Girly Girl Birthday Wear

Andrew, from the previous post, has a sister, Abby, whose birthday will be a week or two before his. Her mom wants to give her sweet little girl a girly-girl birthday outfit--a pink leotard. I REALLY hope she has one of those fabulous little homemade tutus to go with it! I was quite nervous when I started this one, since it was my first embroidery on spandex--YIKES! Lots can go wrong, but thankfully, it didn't! I even made Abby a sweet hair clip to match the butterfly on her leotard. :)

Boys Will Be Boys

I also had to make another shirt for my wild man.  I picked up a great piece of fabric a few weeks ago, and I've been dying to use it.  You can't tell very well from the photos, but the little silhouettes are little baseball players.  I don't tend to go for "theme" type fabric, but since it was such a simple pattern, I had to get it.  I added the blue letters in tribute to my Ole Miss Rebels.  Might as well be baseball related, since we ARE somewhat decent in that arena.  Ha!

This is another boy birthday shirt I just finished tonight, for a sorority sister of mine, Kristy, and her 3 year old, James.  James loves rocket ships and outer space, so this is what he'll get to wear on his big day!  (His shirt is navy, though you really can't tell by this photo.)

Big Sis Jill's Wedding Printables

I had the honor of not only being a bridesmaid, but of also doing all the wedding printables for my sorority Big Sis, Jill, this past fall!  I was quite pleased with how everything turned out--don't you agree? ;)

The picture was a magnet!
Hotel info was under the magnet

Molly's 1st Set of Burp Cloths

Here are two burp cloths I just finished for Molly.  I wanted to try just outlines with her name, and add the ribbon down the sides.  The ribbon and the initials were my "original" way of making burp cloths when I made several for Knox.  I just happened to have the ribbon that had both pink and green, so I swapped the same colors between the two cloths to tie them together.
