{grayson’s 1st birthday} the invite

Can it be that a year has passed already? I have heard the experience of parenthood described as being long days and short years. I think that sums it up beautifully. When my little is up at 5:00 revved up and ready to go, the moment he falls asleep comes with a deep breath and […]

The theme has been picked, inspiration found, and now the Oscar Party invitations are going out. I hand drew the patterns for this invitation and then completed it using Adobe Illustrator. This method rocks because you can have a hand-drawn aesthetic without having to actually hand draw a boat load of invites. I went for […]
