For Christmas, a friend of mine gifted her sister, Lizzie, a new logo design for her healthy eating blog. Super creative gift idea, right? And I got to be the lucky designer to work with her.
The name of Lizzie’s blog is, It’s a Veg World After All. She wanted something simple, clean and colorful. She also seemed to have a thing for carrots. (And avocados – which she believes to be the eighth wonder of the world.)
This is the final mark:
We hope you like it. And we hope you keep up with “It’s a Veg World After All” for plant-based recipes and inspiration. I plan to!
On a side note, thank you for reading “Love is all around” and “Traveler’s Compass” Art Prints and for voting! Traveler’s Compass won an Editor’s Pick Award and is now for sale on Minted!
Every Christmas, I receive a nice hand-written card from my aunt who lives in California. This year, she signed the card, “Enjoy each day.” I thought it was a simple and beautiful message, and I wanted to keep it as an everyday reminder. However, I knew the card would inevitably get lost in the sea of correspondence I’ve been saving since high school. So, I photographed her handwriting, blew it up, and created this print. Look, Aunt Mary Pat, you’re an artist!
I also entered this print into the Three Cheers! Minted x West Elm’s 3rd Art Challenge. So if you want to see it for sale at West Elm, click here to vote. And as always, thank you!
I’m excited to announce the launch of my very first fabric on Minted. It is called Journey Together and it features a repeating pattern of tandem bikes. It was designed to accompany the Journey Together wedding invitation I designed for Minted a while back. The fabric comes in ten colorways, including 2015’s color of the year, Marsala. I hope you like!
And if you’re interested in designing fabrics but you don’t know where to start, hit this link for a tutorial that I found incredibly helpful.

Happy New Year, everyone!
I recently returned from eleven days in Australia. It was an amazing getaway. And honestly, it couldn’t have come at a better time. A time when admittedly, I’m a little confused about life, love, and oh how the list goes on…
On my trip, I met many interesting travelers. In fact, I spent a night at sea with 23 of them on the SV Whitehaven sailboat. They came from Germany, England, France, Sweden, etc. It was a great group and by the end of our journey to and from Whitehaven Beach, we all became quite good friends. And our boat started to feel like home.
There, on a boat in the middle of the ocean, I felt at home. This experience, and the many new people I met (some who are traveling for years at a time), inspired me to create the print series below. Reminders that love doesn’t have to be defined by marriage or babies. And home doesn’t have to be defined by a house with four windows and a door. Love is all around us. And home is wherever we make it.
Incredibly creative and inspiring friends. That’s just one of the many things I feel thankful for this Thanksgiving season.
But unfortunately for me, one of mine just moved all the way across the country. I’m sad for the city of Philadelphia, but I’m super happy for her and her new adventure. LA is lucky to have her.
And lucky for me, she asked me to create two prints for her new place. It’s an honor to know that my work is hanging in her home 2,725 miles away.

Hey All! This is a follow-up to the Vintage Wedding Photo Invitation blog post. It features the wedding day designs I created for Brigid and Jonathan, including the program, escort cards, table names and menu. All photography is by AE Stelzer Photography. Enjoy! And congrats again to Jonny and Brigid! It was a fantastic day.
Check it out. A new wedding invitation design called “We Joyfully Do” that puts a modern twist on traditional wedding vows. It is friendly and fun, much like my good friend who it was originally designed for. Thank you, Lindsey, for allowing me to share it with everyone!
Thanks for reading, all!
