Graphic Design Fun: hart+sew


I really miss my old job, creating posters and banners for student activities, from my old school days. I think that’s part of the reason why I even have a blog in the first place. It’s always needing to be redesigned and modified, so I can flex what little graphic design muscles I have. I always get so excited when I get the opportunity to design for someone else. It’s just so fun to work on fun/unique design projects.


A couple of months ago a friend of mine, Stacy Hart, emailed me to see if I would make some designs for her etsy shoppe. I got particularly excited because there are so many crappy etsy banners out there. She just opened shop and I really want to brag about the design.

I think the name she came up with was super cute. Kind of like heart + soul, but her last name is Hart and she likes to sew. Anyway, you should check out the hart+sew etsy shop which has the MOST adorable hand sewn clothes from vintage patterns. Check out the hart+sew blog, too, it’s full of great ideas and Stacy’s super cute projects.

Pretty Handsome Paper

[insert teenybopper screaming here]

If you haven’t gandered at the sponsor section of the blog, I really suggest you take a peek. One of my great friends, Karisa, has gorgeous design coming out of her ears and she makes some of the most beautiful wedding invitations I’ve ever seen. Of course their beauty is increased exponentially by the yumminess of letterpress and juicy paper. I’m drooling. I can’t tell you how giddy I was when she gave me this incredible stack of stationery! It’s just so gorgeous. Thank you, Karisa, for the goodies! I can’t wait to use one of the calling cards!
