I’ve been working on some custom projects lately. This one for a sweet lady who is running an up and coming beauty blog. She was looking for a complete rebrand and let me run free with ideas. I came up with three options for her to choose from, two hand drawn and one in a watercolor brush script.
This was my first time creating a watercolor logo. I usually work only in pen so it took some practice to get it exactly right. Try and try again.
She decided to go with the watercolor version and I’m so glad she did. We’re both just swooning over it. We both really loved the brush script and how it played well with make-up application, her main focus. We used a peacock toned ombré color scheme to play up the peacock aspect without using the typical peacock feather and incorporated a clean sans serif font for her tagline. What do you think? Do you love it as much as we do?

Just a little update to announce all of the new goodies in the shop and also mention that we’re making some changes to the look of the blog. Drop me a comment and let me know what you think. I’m loving how much cleaner the layout is and that the photos are much larger than they used to be.
A couple weeks ago, we went to visit the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden. We are on a mission to explore Charlotte and we’re having so much fun while we’re at it. The DSBG is about 20 minutes south of Charlotte, near the NC/SC border, in Belmont. It was a beautiful, albeit steamy day, capping off at around 95 degrees. We were only there a couple hours, but managed to walk all of the grounds and snap some good photos. Our last botanical garden visit was to The Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC and in comparison the DSBG is much smaller, but still absolutely beautiful. Definitely worth the trip.
We’re packing up and preparing to make the move from Detroit, MI to Charlotte, NC. The shop is going to be closed from noon Friday, June 13 (EST) until Saturday, June 21. All orders placed by noon on Friday will be shipped out the same day. We’ve got a long list of things to do, like packing for instance, while we’re waiting for the moving truck to get here this Friday. We can’t wait to get down there and give you an update on what I’m sure is set to be an interesting journey. We’re so very excited for this new adventure. Here we come, Charlotte.
A behind the scenes view at the making of our new Father’s Day cards. I just love the difference between the black and white drawing and the finished art, don’t you? It’s so exciting to see them come to life.
