wanna see some of my latest work?

I really do love what I do. I have been thankful over and over again that I listened to my heart when deciding what to study in college and am thankful for a supportive husband that encourages and supports my continued practice of designing.

I was really excited to open my etsy shop up (and a little fearful of the unknown) and it has been such a joy ever since opening its doors, so to speak. I have been pleasantly surprised with the simple steady flow of people that have placed orders. Even better, I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know each one of them. Everyone that I have done business with on etsy so far, both buying and selling, has been so courteous and truly delightful to work with {knock on wood}. It really has kind of renewed my faith in customer service in a way. {Is anyone besides me tired of day to day shopping where customer service all too often non-existent, rude, or overbearing (usually when they are working on a commission)?}

You want to see some of my work? Really the design is truly a combined effort- as you will see each blog is pretty different and kind of a reflection of each blog owner. Anyway, I hope the work keeps coming, as do the kind customers, and I hope you will take the time to visit each blog and get to know each person as they are all wonderful with great blogs to boot! I can only take credit for her header here. She is an amazing scrapbooker! She takes cooking to a whole new level, using local fresh ingredients, with mouthwatering recipes, pictures, and is so personable and warm in her writing. She was so sweet to work with and makes the most adorable bows! I was able to do some bow tags and business cards for her as well. I can't take credit for the logo in her header, but the rest of the blog I was able to do for her. Anyone want a dream wedding in Italy? She is your girl! She was so great to work with and spoke such amazing English! I wish I even spoke a little Italian (and lived there for that matter:) ). So fun and sweet! Her attention to detail, great taste, and vision deserve a lot of the credit for her blog. She is another amazing scrapbooker. She was so laid back and easy to work with! I love her taste and am excited to see what she has in store for her etsy shop! I don't know if he actually ended up ever using this banner I designed for him, but he was super fun to work with and was great to communicate with! Be sure to check out this fun website.

I am in the middle of a few projects that I will post when they are done also:)

OOOh, goody! I can't wait to check out your Etsy shop because I'm so itching for a more professional look on my blog. I love everything I've seen so far, and I love your name and how you spell it!
