Happy Holidays:)

I'm a little late getting this post out, but it's been crazy around here! The holidays are officially upon us! I love Christmas!! I love the weather changing and wearing warm clothes. I love the snow, (that we don't get here in Okinawa), and the excitement in the air. Most of all I love being around loved ones and eating truly gluttenous amounts of yummy holiday food! Egg nog and turkey... mmmmm. I think I could subsist on nothing else! This will be the second time I get to experience the joy of holiday eating in maternity pants... bonus! And no one will judge me for shoveling food into my face:) I can just blame it on the baby!

Honestly though, I will miss my friends and family back in the states and think of you all every moment. The holidays will be a little quieter this year, but with Dane, my spirited almost 3 year old, things will never be boring:)

And now the unveiling! I just wanted to share some holiday cards I've designed recently. All cards can be found on Little Bird's Etsy shop:) I hope you enjoy them:)

Happy Halloween Birthday

I just had the pleasure to work with the very successful and talented lady behind Jaq Jaq Bird. Jaq Jaq Bird is a line of eco-friendly, PVC free kid accessories, such as bibs, splat mat, aprons and more. Her line is sold on Amazon, and has even been found in Nordstrom's.

I had the good fortune to meet her and design invitations for her son's Halloween Birthday party! The idea was clean, simple, Halloween, but not too Halloween, birthday invite for a 6 year old! This is the final product!

In the process of creating this design I also designed various other icons that could serve in place of the bat. I've included those just to give you an idea of my process! It was a fun project that let me do something out of the ordinary for a stationery designer! The "characters" I was able to create I hope to use in the future:) I fell in love with every one of them! (And yes, that is a mummified pinata!) I hope you enjoy!

And Micah, I hope you had a great birthday!
