I was tagged!

I was tagged by SavvyStitcher and modmomME I must now share 10 facts about myself with my readers and tag 10 of you to do the same. So here is goes...

1. I'm actually pretty shy at first, but when you get to know me I'm really chatty...I just never initiate a conversation!
2. I barely started learning graphic design last year...but I've been creating my whole life. However, I've found that with graphic design, I need less patience because you can just press "undo" (which is great when you're a perfectionist).
3. I have really missed eating sushi and steaks through this pregnancy. I told my husband he's making a trip to Texas Roadhouse for me the night I give birth (it's not a steak unless it's still mooing)
4. Etsy has made me completely obsessed with checking my emails...something I'll have to control when the baby comes.
5. I buy things because they're cute...not necessarily for function. I have a mint chocolate because it's green, but really have no idea what it's capable of doing.
6. My husband is my very best friend and I still get excited when I hear his car drive up...cheesy, but I love it :)
7. I absolutely hate being pregnant! I'm so ready for this to be over and I just want to hold my baby!!!
8. If I clean one thing in my house, I have to clean the whole house...I have to have a day set aside just to clean it...Which is why sometimes I procrastinate cleaning (it is clean though...don't want anyone to think I'm a pig).
9. My favorite things: family, food, and shopping...seriously, I have a problem
10. I'm LDS and I love it! My little brother is currently serving a mission in Belem, Brazil and I'm so proud of him...so when you see a mormon missionary, think of my little 19 year old brother knocking on your door and be nice to him :) www.lds.org

Alrighty... now I tag

Pre-made Butterfly Kit

I've decided not to do custom orders when the baby comes...I will eventually when I know what I'm doing...so I'm stocking up on pre-made kits! Also, I'm working really hard at getting my scrapbook store up and running before she comes. If you haven't already, enter my blog contest to guess when little Riley Sage will make her appearance!

Another thing, I've finished AngelinaFong Design's blog. Check it out and be sure to follow her! I love reading her updates...she's a lot more creative with words than I am :) http://www.angelinafongdesigns.blogspot.com/

mod momME NOW OPEN!

Okay, so I am way behind on this...so behind in fact, that I've already received my order from her :) But, that makes it better, because I can tell you how much my mom and I love our fob keychains...and I love the paci clips...so dang cute! She has been such a great client...she always advertises and does referrals. Here's what she's selling:

Blog Give-away

I love to read, so of course I entered this give-away. She'll make a lip gloss and soap batch based on her book review of the books you choose. I picked To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee (it's my favorite book of all time), Rebecca by Daphne DuMaurier (one of my favorite authors and her best book), And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander (my favorite new find...I still need to read the last in the series, but these are so fun). Follow this link to enter:

Good Luck!

Guess My Baby's Birthday Give-away!

So, I thought this would be such a fun give-away...and it's my first, so even more fun! Here's me right now (actually, two weeks ago, so I'm bigger now):My due date is July 11 and at this point, I'm ready to have this baby...so in celebration of that great day, I'm going to give away these two blank 4 x 6 cards .jpeg images. You'll be able to use them for anything...notecards, thank you cards, etc and you'll ALWAYS be able to print more when you need to.

So, here's what you have to do:

1. Follow my blog
2. Write a comment on my blog, telling me the date you think my baby will be born and give me a link to your blog.
3. Post a link to this blog on your blog.

Easy, huh?

If more than one person chooses the same day, I will randomly select from those people for the winner! Obviously, since I don't even know when the baby will be born, I don't know when this contest will end...but I will announce the winner as soon as I recover :)

Visit my shop to see more of my items: www.edub.etsy.com

Good luck!!!

Sold!!

This was a quick sale! I love the way it looks with this business name:

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Business has been pretty good lately...it seems once I get caught up, I get more clients and have more to do. I'll definitely have to take time off when baby comes (only 4 more weeks...yikes!!)

Here are a couple more completed logos. The first one is actually a sticker, but I love the polkadots on it :) Be sure to check her etsy store...it's not set up yet. Another one I'm excited for! www.porterhouseboutique.etsy.com:


The next is from Savvy Stitcher (I also did her blog):


I just purchased these magnet buttons from her as well. She has some blue ones that are cute too. She's participating in Etsy's "Yart Sale" and she has FREE SHIPPING!!! See her blog to see how long this will last.

Good luck!!

And yet another premade kit. The colors are customizable in this kit...but I loved the pink in this, which is weird because I don't usually like pink :)

Premade Kit

I love this kit...I think it'd be perfect for a shop that has hand-sewn goods or something like that. Just wanted to share it!

New Work!

I've been really excited to put this logo up because I think it turned out great! It was definitely a joint effort to create the perfect logo for her shop. She doesn't have anything listed yet, but I keep checking because I know she has great taste (obviously, she chose me as a designer lol). Check out her new banner and avatar at www.modmomME.etsy.com:
Visit www.agraceunlimited.etsy.com for great hand-sewn pillows, blankets, burp cloths, etc. I got this blanket from her in pink and it is so awesome! It's so soft and I'm sure my baby will love it! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23710600
She actually liked my swirly tree card so much that she wanted a logo based on it...so I delivered :) I also used my tree design to create her business card...This can be done with ANY of my invitations!
