What If I Fall Download

I love pretty words… guys if you haven't you MUST start reading e.h… AKA Erin Hanson. She is something fierce. Um, shes only 18 and writes as serious as Walt Whitman, I can't fathom thinking so straight and intelligently at that age… pretty sure the only serious thing on my mind then were the NBA Playoffs.

Anyway I was watching TV with the mister and doodling and this is what came to be… hope you guys enjoy it! And thank you Erin for writing such loveliness.

be my valentine

I'm so excited about these Valentine's Day cards! I know... to some people they are plain and simple and maybe nothing special... but I really love how they turned out and I really had fun working on them. Also can I tell you how most of them were designed to the sounds of Alexisonfire?!!! What! I know... weird.

Cards are available in the SHOP and will ship until February 11 for domestic orders and February 7 for international! Happy shopping!

christmas time is near!

I know. I know. I'm a terrible blogger... its one of my New Years Resolutions... keep everyone in the loop. I'm pretty good at Instagram, Etsy and Facebook... I just need to blog more and tweet. But seriously... its all so much work!

Anyhoo, just wanted to remind everyone that its the last week for us over here to be able to ship Christmas card sets... we can do individual cards, gift tags and prints... but for some reason Canada Post has cut the parcels shipping a few days short! So get your orders in while you can:)

Also we have a few items up for clearance... they're perfectly fine, they're just printed with our old logo and we're trying to have everything old gone for the new year!

Black and White.

I posted some new prints up on the shop last week. Three prints in various medias, handlettering, calligraphy, watercolour and brush and ink. It was fun... the last print, the Bukowski one, isn't for sale, I did it for my own personal use to put up in the office but if anyone is interested I do have extra copies:)

Happy Friday!

Oh Hey Stamps!

I've been working on these for a long time it seems... its hard when you have a toddler who doesn't like to sleep and wants to stay up watching How To Train Your Dragon until midnight, have a full-time job and a messy house. Anyways, they are done! And I'm so happy they are here. I've been busy setting up our new studio space and have lots more things coming!

Ssstho exthited!

Custom monogram stamps are available on Etsy!

ella's birthday invitations.

I keep meaning to post these and... well I keep forgetting. Our daughter turned 2 this past June and I wanted to have a pinkish theme. But not barbie pink... my inspiration was this:

which I ended up doing only I have to warn you... they pop easier after the paint has dried. Any little touch and they would just burst... so put them somewhere where no one will bump into them. We also built her a tipi and I made her cake a fluffy pink with gold candles. I think she had a fun day.

Anyways these are the invites that I ended up designing. I had ella help me paint dots on the liners so she had a hand in it;)

Green North

My husband asked me to design and brand his new company a little while ago... normally I'm excited to do something like this but when its your BFF/Partner in Crime/Person I can't lie to... well its kind of daunting...

So I sat down with him and talked to him about Green North. Then I asked him to make me a pinterest board with everything that he though he might like. That ranged from colours to typography and textures... basically anything that he though he liked. It had two consistencies when I looked at it... A lot of black and white and a splash of colour and a lot of white space and clean type.

So we worked on a few designs and had one fight because, I don't understand what design build means and because he doesn't understand that normal people (who don't work in construction) don't know what design build means.

Anyway I think he was pretty happy about the whole thing in the end...

Heres the final logo, the final brand brief and the business cards that we printed on pretty cotton paper. Textured paper was a big deal to Kane, he wanted simplicty but weight to his cards.

Ok. How terrible am I at blogging? The Worst. But I've been super busy with you know summer fun and all that stuff. And it really seems like everyone is slacking so I don't feel so bad. Also, I got a new office space and my lovely husband is currently painting it and doing the floors and all that jazz. I'm really going to try and finish it for the end of August... but you know... who knows what will happen;)

mother's day love.

I can't believe I finished these! Ella has been a terror the last few weeks and its so hard to get to work so late. So, I'm only posting 3, although I was originally supposed to have 4 but the last one was just not working out for me and let's be honest, it's much better to have 3 pieces you love as opposed to staring at 3 good ones and one you slightly hate.

All cards available now in the shop! Click here to see!
