Here are two more baby shower & stationery designs inspired by nursery rooms.  I realized lately, that is all I blog about, but I absolutely love doing these.  Not only do I have fun with the creative freedom the client's usually give me, but my favorite is receiving their reaction to the invitations.  They always seem to come together exactly how they imagined, which every designer loves to hear!

Reaching out to expand my brand

Now that my website is finally finished, I have taken a step back to try to think of different marketing tools to expand my brand.  Luckily I have experience in working at an ad agency so I have seen what works and what doesn't, so I decided to take a more creative approach.

I recently signed up for twitter, and have yet to understand this new world of "tweeting" but I am trying to get a hang of it.  Being a fan of "Bethenny Getting Married" One of her shows was about her picking out her baby room items and she just fell in LOVE with this green elephant from Yoya. I was inspired to create a custom card with this adorable animal on it....and I did.

I absolutely LOVE how these turned out and I have already added them to my website so others can purchase!
I reached out to Bethenny via twitter about these. She claims that she reads all of her tweets, so lets see if we get a hit....fingers crossed. :) Wouldn't that be great!? If she twittered about them herself?  Maybe this twitter thing is useful...  we will see.
