In the past I tend to keep my blog more kid-craft specific. I'd like to mix it up a bit and introduce you to more of what I do beyond glitter and glue. I recently finished a line of t-shirt graphics for good ol' Smokey Bear. I do a significant amount of freelance and the most exciting part about it is that it's never the same! These Smokey Bear shirts will be found in National Parks and Zoos.

The luxury I have of being completely passionate about all things design and art is that I can translate it to almost any medium or purpose. One of the ways I spread my love of creative problem solving is in event planning. I do this on a very limited basis because as you can imagine, I dive in full steam ahead and it tends to occupy a lot of my time. This summer I chose to take on hosting a baby shower for my pet loving, dear friend Beth. She is like my little sister (one of 3) and I could't think of celebrating my excitement for the arrival of her little peanut in any other way than FULL STEAM AHEAD. The sugar cookie dog bones were packaged with a note from all of her and her husbands pets saying "Thank You for celebrating our new playmate". Floral bouquets were in vintage glass milk bottles, the wagon bouquet was once a $3 red wagon at the thrift store until I got my glittery hands on it and a gourmet sundae bar for dessert topped off the warm summer afternoon. Doing events like this makes it hard for me to say "no" to more event planning. I had so much fun and I think all our guests did too!
