Collaboration – Kitty + Dot

Folks, I want to share some exciting news! My very talented friend + artist, Katie French, has asked me to collaborate on some artwork with her. We’re combining our art + design skills to create some fresh designs that will very soon be displayed (at Hair Lounge Minneapolis) and for purchase. Please check out Katie’s instagram feed to see her beautiful work! And please check out our instagram feed (Kitty + Dot) where we’ll be updating our progress.

A little tid-bit of info about our collaborative art name “Kitty + Dot”. Katie’s mom has called her “Kitty” her entire life and it’s something her friends have adapted. For me, growing up with an identical twin sister, people often asked “How can I tell you two apart?” and so we came up with the answer “Dena dot”. My dot is the distinguishing mole on my chin. And so years later was born Kitty + Dot.

Here’s a little teaser of Katie working on a lovely watercolor texture. Stay tuned!

He’s a Natural

Being a stay-at-home-mom (and part-time designer) brings me much frustration and much joy. I thought I’d share with you one of the ways Auggie brings joy to my life. He asked “More painting please?” and so here he is using watercolors!

I’ve liked some of his artwork so much that I’ve frames a couple pieces.

Wedding Invitations – Jenny + Chris

I had the pleasure of working with an engaged couple, Jenny + Chris. Knots Villa recently featured their Vineyard Wedding! Take a look at the beautiful photos + stationery designed by yours truly.

Glittering Wedding

Take a look at the KNOT post featuring photos from Nick + Katie’s wedding, including the wedding invitations I designed for the couple!

Announcing Augustus

Surprise! He’s a boy! Of course we had too many girl names picked out and NO BOY NAMES! We left the birth center with “baby boy” and finally came to a conclusion at home. His middle name was easily chosen when we found out he was born on daddy’s great great grandfather Ebert’s birthday.

I’ll be on Maternity leave for the next couple of months and slowly transition back into work. Forgive me if response time is slower than usual.

Just a Bit of Sparkle

I’ve been holding my breath (not literally) waiting to post some amazing photos from a photoshoot put together by two of my favorite creatives, Emily Steffen (of Emily Steffen Photography) & Lisa Gillund (of Johnny + Dottie). I was very excited that they asked me to design the stationery, it’s always a fun and challenging task! I’m going to share some of my favorites from the day, but you can see more on Lisa’s blog.
