mason jars

cute mason jarsSo versatile, and quite trendy as a home decor item right now, a series of canning jars in different states of use — just playing with variations on a theme. I like how this came together. It’s also available in the Calobee Doodles Etsy shop as a print!

free holiday desktop wallpaper – santa’s new sleigh

Presenting December’s free holiday desktop wallpaper! As relatively new parents to a two-year-old, last year was the first year my husband and I really got to play “Santa” to our daughter. I can tell you right now, this Santa thinks living at the North Pole is overrated. If this Santa had a choice, she’d jet off to her winter home in the Carribean every January.

I’m just sayin’. Please enjoy!

paper treats - business card design

Caroline (who has a fantastic name, not that I’m biased) was one of my first custom design clients and is still a joy to work with. Recently she needed a simple business card created using the logo I designed for her a while ago. It was her idea to add the detail work in the back to help the card pop a little, and I think it came out beautifully!

I’m cheating and using an existing design for this week’s Illustration Friday theme, transportation. This personalized kids’ banner I designed a while back came to mind immediately. On a personal note, my daughter has a sudden fascination with the “cool bus” (school bus), to the point where I may need to print one of these posters with her name for her birthday!

Custom Couples' portrait

I recently finished this sweet custom couple’s portrait for a client. Aren’t these two cute? Illustrating this reminded me why I love working on portraits. As much as I enjoy the business-y, promotional side of design, it’s nice to do something more personal once in a while.
