You’re never to old to play with dolls, especially when they are as pretty as these ones from Wool and Water. They are designed and created by Amy Earles and I think they are the sweetest things I’ve seen all week.
Absolutely gorgeous wedding suite made by very clever (and hands-on) bride (Christine) and groom (Ian). It was designed and made using a home printer and a rented laser cutter/engraver. Very crafty and fun.
I love the idea of giving guests a field guide showing flora and fauna in the area where the wedding took place. Very cool idea. I also love the interactivity of the invitation where guests could pop up the trees to get into the spirit of a wedding in the woods.
I don’t know about your year but my 2014 has gone super, super quick. I can’t believe that it is already the middle of October. Before long I’ll be dragging out our Christmas tree and hanging tinsel all over the place. Cray!
Now is a great time to grab your 2015 calendar – get in early before they sell out! To kick off my calendar round-ups I’ve chosen some gorgeous wall calendars.
If you have any favourites that you think I should feature, send them through!
Happy Notebook Monday y’all. These pretties are from Kristian A. Howell and they are sooo lovely and colourful and happy. Everything you need for a Monday, right?
Yay! The site is back online. We had a few issues with our web host recently so thanks for checking in party people. Today is a celebration of all things bright, shiny, shimmery and partylicious. Thanks Michiemay for these gorgeous party decorations.
I was just thinking the other day that I haven’t written a post about corporate identity/branding for a while so I’m remedying that today. The world is full of creative, talented people. Sometimes all you can do is bask in their greatness.
A very restrained, classic approach to branding for London’s first almond milk supplier The Pressery by designer Tim Jarvis.
Beautiful black by Fabian De Lange for hypergraffiti
Illustration and design by Anya Aleksandrova for Michelle’s Bakery that is good enough to eat.
Awesome logotype, custom patterns and palette used in the branding for Barba Bird by Dawid Cmok
I have a thing about black and white at the moment. You really can’t go wrong with this classic colour pairing. Moodley Brand Identity have created a stunning fuss free, friendly brand.
Wunderblock GmbH manages to capture the essence of Rio’s Maria Santa Teresa Guest House.
Loving the use of colour in this identity for the Benevolent Society by Aussie agency Dreamworks.
I’ve saved my favourite ’til last. This beautiful black and floral branding for guarderobbery (by Russian designer Pavel Ilyuk) is breathtaking.
If you have any favourites, send them my way!
There’s no better way to start the new week than having a peek at some lovely notebooks! Are you addicted to notebooks too? How many do you have in your collection?
As you all know, I love art. Art is transformative. It helps us to see the world in different ways. Art can move people, it can rally people, it can be the catalyst for great change.
Creating social awareness through art is something I believe in and support which is why I want to share the work of Winsome Easel with you.
“Winsome Easel believes that beautiful words and authentic relationships can transform this world. Because of this, 10% of all proceeds go to ending human trafficking and modern day slavery through an End It Movement partner organization called Made in a Free World. Your purchase is helping make a difference in the global story of freedom!”
Oh and it also helps that Kristin’s work is gorgeous too. You can buy beautiful art and help change the world. Win win!
We went for a drive into the hills over the weekend and saw the gorgeous tulips at Araluen Botanical Park. Spring is everywhere, all around us, at the moment. From the new shoots on our grape vine to the warm easterly breeze that carries the smell of the bush into my office window. It’s my favourite season.
I thought these prints by Beloved & Co summed up our little weekend escape.
